    Waiting soooo long to get a current OS. Forget it. Next month or when the Note 2 comes out, I will be replacing it. No more checking every day for the OTA roll out or Googling for the info.

    I agree. However, I'm holding out for Windows Phone 8 device.

    I had to call VZW tech support, today. I asked about ICS and she confirmed that it will definitely be available within two months.

    It's not much but it's something.

    I've thought about it a little more, and I don't think I'll leave the Spectrum for ANY phone. I'm not willing to give up my Unlimited Data & Unlimited HotSpot. Therefore, it really doesn't matter when I change phones (in contract or not); I would have to pay full price, anyway.

    I expect the full price for any of the new, high-end phone would be around $600 - $700, plus the $30 'change phone' fee, plus tax, and for all that, I could buy a decent notebook/tablet/TV, or something else that would give my life a little more functionality.

    I'll stick with the LG Spectrum until the phone dies.

    Wow, talk about timing. Spectrum ICS has arrived. It's official as of a couple hours ago although it hasn't started pushing yet.

    I had my heart set on rhe SG3 too. I decided against it because many folks have been reporting spontaneous screen cracks. I would have to buy it off eBay for a hefty price and don't want to risk it. It seems like a great phone. My daughter in law just got one too. At least now your son will have some ice cream. :)

    The ICS update is like having a new phone. It seems to make the 720p IPS display simply stunning. I think I'll be good with the LG Spectrum for quite some time, now.

    Is it too early to start wishing for Jelly Bean, or something newer in the future? Probably. I don't expect any other update to this phone, as it is far too old (relatively) to expend any more resources on.

    I had read that this update was going to be huge and it sure enough was. The phone was completely overhauled. They did an excellent job with it. Smooth, fast and I love the interface, icons and all. When the Rezound was updated to ICS, you could barely notice the difference because so little changed cosmetically. LG gave us a totally different phone. I'm very pleased with it.

    As for Jelly Bean, all I can say is, I'm glad the Ice Cream is tasty because I doubt well get any Jelly Beans.
