Lol you have more power than you think. I had a thunderbolt because they were removing the unlimited plan and bionic release was after the date they were removing it. 1 week after the bionic was released I called and spoke with them. I demanded a different device and they gave me 3 options. The charge, some lg and the bionic as a option. This was only 1 week after bionic was released. I got the thunderbolt the week it was released so I had it for 6 months roughly. I paid nothing, they just sent me a replacement device and had to send the extended battery since they didn't have regular ones in stock. My contracts up in February next year and haven't decided what to do yet

And JB will appear on the Bionic 2 (out July 2013), but won't get the upgrade to Key Lime Pie until May 2014 (after 10 leaks, the first appearing in October 2013). :biggrin:

Whatever Sam! Lol, you know when we are really getting the OTA, you're just laughing at everyone including myself with the fear of jumping on HOB, the 22nd is far away

I actually don't know, sadly. I wish I did. NO ONE seems to know for sure when it's going to roll. No one was expecting 247, either. I couldn't are less about the OTA other than I can't get a new FXZ until it's rolling.
To quote the guy who will be firing Big Bird, I'll betcha 10,000 bucks that we will be getting the OTA this month.
To quote the guy that said I'd save $8000 /year on fuel, I'll bet that much it'll be in December.
And how do u know there is a bionic 2 and about when it will come out.
Same way you can say when ICS will come out. Anyone's guess is as good as another's at this point.
This is true.
I think because they only said Q4, and how they have bs'd in the past... it will most likely be mid November or late December... I'm not getting my hopes up though...
Being one of the 47%, I can't be personally responsible for my bets.
Eh.. just like my sig says from February. I predicted we'd get screwed over by Motorola. Just seeing how our phone was treated before 2012 began I knew it wasn't going to be a pretty picture.
I still think Q4 is pretty darn likely for ICS. It's all but written that we'll get it this quarter. I can't imagine Motorola would be dumb enough to push off ICS until Q1 2013 unless we were getting a direct upgrade to JB. I don't think that's very likely though. Considering the comments in the moot thread mention that 247 has changes that appear to be pre-JB fixes it seems to me that we stand a better chance of getting JB than we did a week ago.
Right now, my biggest "concern" with us getting JB is the number of people ditching the Bionic. I'm pretty sure Verizon has a way to quickly check the total number of Bionics on their network. My guess is if that number goes too low then Motorola won't give us JB because they won't see a "return on their investment". I'm talking strictly from a monetary point of view. I don't think they give a rat's a** about if they have a small number of happy customers or not. They only care about $$$. At that point they'll really only be updating the phone so the used Bionics that are out there will compete with other newer phones. And let's face it.. Motorola wants us to buy more new phones and not used ones!
So, in my opinion... if there aren't enough Bionics out there, we won't see JB. I firmly believe this is why the Atrix 4G didn't get ICS. That phone is 21 months old and while the hardware isn't that bad I'm betting a lot of Atrix 4G users have upgraded and only a small (but obviously vocal) group are still using the phone.
I don't think it's quite fair to say they don't care about happy customers. At some point, they have to care about happy customers, otherwise there will be no $$. Whether we like it or not, shipping new phones is the reality, and when you don't keep up and push the market, well, look at where RIM is today.
I want ICS as much as the next guy, but wait... I'm on ICS on my Bionic. So nevermind. Unless you're having a specific issue that's not fixed in one of the available leaked builds, the only thing that OTA will give us is a final blessed build and no further reason to gripe on the forums, no?
My vote/guess - OTA build 249 will soak on Oct 29 and get pushed on Oct 31.
Juvember 32nd?? We are already past that date! I don't think it will be until the fourth week of Decembruary now (and that's a maybe)!
Who do you call...Ghostbusters?
How can I acquire the 247 leaked version? Is it on the site somewhere? Or a link to it maybe?
Go to the Wireless Moot thread - find a post by SamuriHL and then look in his Sig. There are 2 links in it that should have all the information you should need along with download links.
Just read it carefully, and thoroughly, follow instructions and it works well for most.
