    Someone will let us know, either an anonymous soak tester or one of the many with connections. It's all a game, if VZW can let us know indirectly then they will, just to build hype.

    Yeah, most likely, I think ICS not being out yet is more hyped than phone ever was :)

    Remember what vzw said about the razr??

    There'll be no soak test for ics.....so everybody that got an email was ticked... then there was a soak test. :what:

    My point is that you never know, because it seems like vzw and moto don't..lol

    It certainly does seem that they are getting more and more difficult to predict. There does not seem to be a standard procedure anymore.

    It's also possible that with the massive Google workforce, they could do a soak test internally with enough users.

    Doubtful. They want to test it "in the field" using "volunteers". More of a wide sample group more possibility of.finding a problem and less of a liability. Lol

    Right. Part of the test is the ability for the average person (aka "The Great Unwashed") to receive it OTA. No forum, no manual install.

    The soak will likely be next week... Probably later in the week. No idea if they'll do for us what they did not the D4 which was to soak/ota on the same day.
