    So, I was told that when ICS comes out for the Rezound in OTA it will be in order that the phones were sold, first to buy is the first to get.

    This was direct from one of Verizon's supervisors.

    The OTA is send through HTC and Google, the person you spoke to has no clue.

    Yea, majority of of the time the Verizon people know nothing useful :/
    People on this forum will probably know more way before Verizon employees do, well I'm just saying this through experience from myself and other forums users :)

    It may be from HTC and Google, but it comes through VZW network, and VZW control. I also tried to get them to say they pushed back the update for us because they wanted Moto to have it first, I got "well ye... Well I can't say for sure why".

    Ota's are pushed out randomly based on location as to not overload servers and piss people off even more (even though vzw is already good at that)

    Well, that's how Motorola does it. Don't think HTC necessarily follows the same "rule" - as a matter of fact, I believe Moto is the only manufacturer that "soak tests".

    Razr's started to get it but it seems to be a random order - check xda for more info. I gotta think rezound will follow but I think I'm just gonna install the leak.

    I'm thinking that we'll get it soon. It's less of a big deal to me because I already have it but I'm tired of the Rezound getting treated like a red headed step child by VZ. ICS was ready then it gets pulled most likely by VZ because we can't have another phone getting an upgrade before their golden child. All I hear is Razr this and Maxx that. When the truth is the Rezound is by far a superior phone in everyway. Throw in an extended battery and Maxx is left in the dust as well. All I want is for the Rezound get the respect it's due. Ok, rant over.

    Agree with you on both points. I have an Asus transformer tablet and ICS has been the worst thing that has happened to it. What makes it worse is its mostly Google's own apps that have become completely unstable. Worked perfect with Honeycomb and problems are widespread with forum members. I used to hate Verizon for holding back updates, but I'm starting to think its a good thing for them to test it fully before distributing it.

    So far the leaks have been great. I installed the second one and I couldn't be happier with it.

    I installed the last leak and it is working fantastic. By the way, ICS still needs some work in my book.

    Or iPod touch or Ipad since they all use the exact same os, just different screen sizes of the same device

    My Rezound purchased in April is my first smartphone so I am new to all of this discussion. I have been afraid of making any changes to my phone as i am very happy with it as it is, but I have no idea what an OTA upgrade is. When (if?) we get it will it automatically download to my phone and if so will it effect the apps that i have on it or make any other changes? I am not even sure of what it will contain - I assume that it will be the Ice Cream Sandwich that I have seen mentioned. I have HTC Sense version 3.5 so is this what will be upgraded? I've tried searching the forum but cn't find the info I"m looking for. Please overlook my ignornce!!
