    If you look at Moto's twitter feed (either yesterday or the day before) they give the same stock answer in regards to the Bionic. So it IS going to get ICS, as they've stated before, we just don't know the timeline.

    Moto has never given a date for the roll-out because they don't control it. They did it one time and it backfired on them. They announced a roll out for the Original Droid and quickly found out Verizon controls when an update is ready. After that their stance has always been "soon." Save yourself the time of sending emails and tweets. All your going to get is "soon" When the roll out is underway they will say it's pushing to devices and not a moment before.

    Sure they will take a look at how stable ICS is on the RAZR and manage whatever chaos ensues, then make tweaks/updates/add more bloatware, then make a decision on the Bionic. Would seem to make sense.

    Agree with you Cereal Killer... just enjoy the summer and read the RAZR forum to get the occasional reality check :)

    Was just looking at the RAZR forum, sounds like a Gingerbread update is anticipated, nothing on ICS. However, thought you'd find this amusing regarding the ICS leak

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?p=2072884

    Sound familiar? Maybe it's a feature! :cool:

    They don't have it either; it was just an update to GB.

    Someone needs to develop a Customer Support app. It works like a Magic 8 Ball. You ask it a question and shake the phone. You'll get answers like "In a few weeks" "Next Quarter" and "Soon."

    Isn't supposed to be the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar?

    Seriously, according to https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c both the Bionic and RAZR are still in the "Evaluation & Planning" stage with "Further details to follow." If you have an exact date, where did you get it from?

    You answered your own question. It just ain't going to happen. RAZR's will get one day of joy and the BIONIC nothing. I went through enough of them to know the BIONIC isn't what they intended it to be and haven't and will not show it any love as a result of it failing. They will come up with an excuse why it will be even longer ie the processor won't support ICS blur build or something.

    At the same time they were going to release an update to fix the phones issues by the end of September 2011 it is still having issues come April 2012. Just like unlocked bootloader by November 2011 still nothing.

    Its not like a million other phones are getting updated. I love my Bionic the way it is the 902 update is the reason I bought this phone over the any other 4G device. Ice Cream Sandwich will make it to this phone. I don't think Moto is that scared of their customers that they would make an announcement off the phone could not be up graded.

    Assume the worst (which has generally been what we've gotten from Moto on this phone) and you won't be disappointed.

    I honestly don't comprehend what e-mailing them will accomplish. Lets say you were to accomplish getting a possible date for ICS. Does that help in any way? You still have to wait XXXX amount of days to receive it.

    Let Motorola do their thing and ICS will come. It won't be in the near future either, so everyone really needs to stop getting their hopes up. As the poster above said, assume the worst and if it comes, then hey, you're happy.

    ICS Can wait............

    I just recently flashed the Eclipse 2.2 ROM for my Bionic .902 and absolutely love it! Since everything is running smooth and fast, (and the free mobile hotspot) I am in no hurry to get ICS and have to wait to get that rooted with all of the goodies. Plus, once it comes out, everyone is going to be jumping up and down for Jelly Bean. By that time, I will have moved on from the Bionic and will be rocking either a new HTC Android of some sorts, or Motorola. I've had the D1, D2, Droid Pro, Droid X, HTC Incredible, Thunderbolt and I'm not quite sure which brand I like better. I loved my HTC Androids, but I'm a MotoFan by heart. If you can't wait for ICS, I'm telling you, check out the Eclipse ROM, it's pretty sweet!!
