    We can only guess. No dates have been released, only the announcement that we will get it.

    I heard that it will come out in late 2014 or sometime this year. It might come out earlier. Probably in June. Hopefully it will come out earlier. We have been waiting quite a while already since the release of the of the new Droid line (Mini, Maxx, Ultra).

    Soak test for Droid RAZR M for the KitKat update is currently in session. Update is expected in "weeks" according to Motorola.

    Can hardly wait for the problems it will make. Already heard of linking problems with Kit Kat and other things. I will try to put this off and see what problems occur before taking the upgrade. How again do you block OTA upgrade?

    Hopefully there are not too many issues. I am optimistic that the lengthy delay means Moto & VZW are doing a thorough test run. I don't know if you can block it without being rooted (not sure if you are or not). I think you can clear the OS Upgrade notification for a few weeks (maybe less??) until it automatically downloads & installs. Hopefully some Razr M owners will download it right away and post there results / opinions, etc.

    I'll install it as soon as it's available. I bought a used Droid RAZR M with the latest software and it's not unlocked (not that I can do it) or rooted, so I got nothing to loose.

    True, BT connections sometimes get "out of whack" after OS upgrades. I use a HX550 and a Roadster, so i'll see how the pairing works after the update; without unpairing first. When my Bionic updated to JB last year, I had to completely re-pair it with the Roadster.

    Cool car. I love to see a well kept old school car on the road.

    I know that it's a PITA, but the rule of thumb is that a factory reset would be the best way to run a phone after a big OS update no? How many people actually do that would be interesting to know.

    I have read that tip on a few forums. I have never done it in the past and never had an issue upgrading to a new OS version (maybe I was lucky?). But, after reading about some of the app incompatibilities with Kit Kat on the Moto forum, I am considering a FDR before the update this time. More than likely though, I will uninstall all Play Store apps, wipe the cache & then install the update. Then install Play Store apps one at a time to make sure they work correctly. It's still time consuming, but not as much as a FDR. I saw a list floating around somewhere once with known apps that are not compatible with Kit Kat, but can't remember where. At the time I read it, I only had one Play Store app that was incompatible & it might have been updated since then.

    Hitting a mild bump in the road with that Corvette would unpair the phone anyway ;)
