    One of our members in the forums, datboiwizzie, received a text message via his Verizon Wireless Mobile IM app that pretty much spells out that Android 4.0.x is on it's way. With all the rumors circulating of various release dates and server issues, this latest text message looks to be official confirmation that the update is days away. We can't see Big Red sending out a text of this nature and waiting another month to push out the update, but that's just us.

    We'd like to hear from the community. Has anyone else received this message?

    UPDATE: We are getting reports in from members (comments) and Facebook Fans that they are receiving the same message. A Xoom user reported also reported in. We're almost there.....

    That long string of numbers at the top look like the type of number I get messages from re. Verizon (such as when I pay my bill) - so I see no reason why this couldn't be legit.

    Just got the same message from Verizon here in NC. I'm still running one of the first leaks so I can still go back to GB and follow the update path. I'm going to wait until everyone starts to get it, no point in going back to GB if VZW let's us down again. I hate to speculate but this looks very promising and as stated before, the number I got the message from is definitely one of those VZW numbers that tells you when you pay your bill... Could....almost....be....here!

    Yeah same here those are the same looking numbers I get from Verizon from time to time. Also as a test I booted up the Mobile IM app and loaded my AIM account and have it running. Maybe they will send me one too :)

    MotoCast Software Update also!

    I also got the same text message. On a side note, I just received an update for my MotoCast PC software as I am typing this reply. Awful coincidental. . dancedroid I have a Droid Razr in Birmingham, AL.

    Love it! That's so funny because I got that kind of sick feeling in my stomach, knowing I will need to FB to GB, because of a failed Cheesecake. It's time to do the backups and get ready to FB to .173 and OTA to .181.

    Do you use the app? Some people are saying they don't use it.

    One question, one comment:
    - Those who have received the text, Razr(s) only?
    - What about the traditional soak tests that historically precede OTA updates....

    I got the text and I'm on RAZR (not MAXX). I would imagine the soak test should start up sometime in the near future mainly due to the fact that we're seeing these messages and the ICS leaks are getting more frequent, which is usually indicative of nightly builds which means they're finishing up the fine tuning.

    All of this is total speculation, of course. My guess is as good as yours.
