    Here it is a few days into March, and no jelly bean yet. What a freaking joke. Couldn't agree with you more about slowtorola. Getting fed up with these jokers. Even my Motorola wireless router/modem is a piece of junk. This will be my last Motorola device ever.

    The RAZR/Maxx are older devices are far as moto is concerned. The fact that they are even still bothering to upgrade it says something. They also said by the end of Q1, so they are not late.

    Easy now...

    At least they still update. Would you rather they rushed updates out and then you are hear complaining about crapola or would you rather they not updte our phones at all and you have to buy a newer one just to get the latest and greatest?

    Take a deep breath..... gooosfraba.....

    Hey all I'm saying is that other companies seem to update devices at a much faster rate with no problems

    Could it be perhaps the money hungry scum bags at Verizon that are the cause of this? I used to just pay extra to be able to upgrade after 1 year. Remember that? Because let's be honest, phones are pretty much outdated after 6 months. Then they just decided to do away with that. So then, they said they could upgrade me after a year of my new contract if I was the primary person on me and my wife's account. Just called the other day, and apparently they no longer honor that. So, I'm back and forth on who's to blame here. If verizon wasn't such a joke, we might be able to get a new phone in a decent amount of time, and maybe if Motorola would update their phones more often we could deal with these issues like ICS. Yeah, yeah this is still ranting, but if Verizon didn't have the best coverage in my area, I would dump them in a second. And I've been with them since '02.

    Even if AT&T had similar coverage, their upgrade policies are no better. I understand the desire to upgrade more frequently. But I also understand why the phone companies are only willing to give you a $600 device for $200 every two years.

    They would probably be more willing to allow you to upgrade sooner if you were willing to pay $400 or $500 for your phone, but then people would complain about that.

    And once you're willing to pay $500, you can just go buy one without the contract.

    And another thing is why they would send soak invites out almost two weeks ago and still not start the soak yet??? By now Samsung probably would have done a complete ota by now!!!

    Not even close to two weeks yet. From what I understand, the invites went out Sunday evening which puts it at 8 1/2 days. I know that's a long time to wait for something that will completely revolutionize every aspect of our lives, but I think I can hang on.

    It is only JB anyway which only offered slight improvements over ICS. Its the desire to be on the latest and greatest but once you have it for a few days you'll start to wonder why you got so worked up.

    I've heard the soak test HAS begun. Not just invites having been sent, but the actual test. Source was reliable in my opinion.

    I'm excited to try JB but I am pretty happy with ICS. I would rather have slower updates with a stable release then hurried release with a buggy system.

    @ blackhawk, if you want regular updates and despise motorola so much, buy an iPhone. :blink:

    But if you buy an iPhone, you get one major update a year, if your device is supported for the new update, and maybe some minor updates.

    We got the phones in November, update in June and now another update in March (tentatively), by my count that's about 8-9 months, seems like we get them more often!!!

    I totally agree!!! While it would have been nice in December, I would rather have a stable build, not that December's wasn't stable for most people!!!
