    It now says the rollout will happen in Q4, which gives them 3 more months to get it out.

    to go with that Punit post on his G+ account:
    "Punit Soni11:46 AM+1
    There will be no more delays. We updated the page with what we think are timings we can commit to and meet. And my team will work super hard to ensure we meet them. You can hold me accountable for them.

    Also note: We will review the status of upgrades and update this page on a monthly basis."

    and later:
    "Punit Soni12:06 PM+2
    I dont think Dec 31 is acceptable guys. Its going to be way earlier. "

    I see the "6-7-244-leaked" thread has been not only closed, but removed.

    There goes my post count; and my ranking; and my likes... :angry:

    Actually, I THINK it was hidden for now until the events discussed within have passed. To keep certain information from becoming more public than it already has. I am extremely pissed off though, as I had made it to "Droid Sensei" - now i'm back to freaking "Droid Ninja" again. I think the post counts should stand, as even if the posts have disappeared I still put lots of effort into most of them. I feel like DF has stolen from me at this point.

    The thing is, we NEED an OTA or we're never going to see cool stuff like kexec Jellybean builds which lesser phones such as the D4 get to enjoy. No dev is going to commit to a nonofficial build.

    Well, my "anger" is just tongue in cheek. I couldn't care less.

    On the other hand, I feel your pain and am disappointed; it isn't every day that one gets to exchange ideas with a Sensei.:hail:

    Also, I'm all for protecting sources, so if it never comes back, that's okay by me. We have the information...

    I kind of like that idea, and forgot that it was an option really. I am here reading everything going on all the time, just don't post much. But still willing to put up the money to show my support. These forums with the knowledge gained are well worth the investment any day.

    What few people understand is if you give up on ICS for Bionic, you're essentially doing what Verizon wants you to do. They're purposefully delaying the update so that the Bionic misses it until its update timeframe expires, forcing people to switch to a newer phone. That's bad for people who have unlimited data plans, because Verizon made it so when you use your upgrade discount to get a new phone, you're forced to go onto the ShareEverything plan, which gives you a GB data limit.

    I have a feeling that Verizon has become annoyed of the Bionic. Because of its odd development back in 2011, it actually ended up being a more powerful phone than anyone anticipated, and even today it's still able to run the latest software perfectly. It has all the specs it needs to do so smoothly on JB, and Verizon realized that they'll lose sales because of it.

    So Verizon would rather people switch to a new phone than keep the Bionic because they don't want people getting a major new software update scott free, but they also want people to get rid of their grandfathered unlimited data plans.

    That's why I'm staying on the Bionic until ICS comes out, and I'm keeping it right until the end of my two years, because after screwing us and Motorola and Google over with the Bionic's software updates, they don't at all deserve to get what they want from us.

    If Big Red S*its on us, and all of this has blown over, why not get the FCC involved. I am sure Google would be happy to cooperate with them considering how terrible and underhanded they (V) have been about this. Verizon is not a favorite of the FCC and I am sure they would not mind fining them AGAIN for their dirty, underhanded, backstabbing business decisions. If it is proven (would not be hard to do) that they were doing what they were accused of, the FCC would have their lunch, snack AND dinner!! I have 18 months left on my contract and unless they get their mess together, I will switch to another carrier. I do love their service, but their business practices and customer service are despicable.

    I hate to admit it to a community of Droid users, of which I have been since the OG Droid, but I'm considering getting the iPhone 5 in May when my upgrade is due.

    There are a lot of reasons. One is just to mix it up, the updates in Android are so spread out that I don't feel there is enough changes over the course of having the phone for 2 years that I get a little bored. Apple is a lot better of releasing updates on a regular basis.

    Also, I think that I'll enjoy Android more if I mix it up with an iPhone.

    But my mind won't be made up until May. If there is an amazing phone out that is a Droid at that time, then I will. Surely most new phones released at that time will be JB, so it could change my mind.

    Time will tell. I just don't like waiting forever. We all know it works on the phone, so its silly to have to wait. One of the major perks to me about Android is the ability to continue to load new OS's to it as they come out but if we constantly have to follow leaks rather than Verizon getting their act together with Google then it is just a bit of a pain.

    Well, to each their own. I'm still sticking with my decision to keep my Bionic for two years. I love this phone. And eventually I want to fix it up nicely. I plan to totally replace the front with an all new metal bezel and new gorilla glass, and I'm going to get a screen protector and case for the phone (something I never did when I first got it XP). Besides, as an IT professional I want to learn how to fix Android phones.

    I love my bionic as well. Despite the constant data problems. I had an Eris before the bionic so i'm used to disappointment!
