    This is a huge step in the right direction for Big Red. There may be no release dates associated with their press release, but the acknowledgment of what devices will receive the update is a step in the right direction. ​

    Guess I'll have to rely on CM9 until my upgrade!

    D3 owners have to be pissed

    Edit: Well, I guess D3 isn't "4G LTE", but a couple HTC devices on that list don't have 4G. Maybe They'll put out a complete list with the D3 and X2 on it. It'd be a crying shame if they didn't get the update.

    Saw this over a week ago, the full list shows them 3rd quarter or later. No plans for the Droid X, X2 or Droid 3 at all

    I would've liked to have seen the Charge on the list, but I wasn't expecting it.

    Looks like Verizon has just taken Manufacturers announcements and put together a "list". Nothing different being said than what we've seen so far....

    At the top they state "list of 4G LTE devices" but then have a few 3G devices in the list......and both of those have been listed by HTC as getting ICS.

    The list from Motorola is the same as on Motorola's site.....though they have those listed as "Evaluation and planning"........as well as the Droid X2 and Droid 3.

    So far....nothing to see here....

    No d3. Just another reason to never buy moto again. EVER.

    But to be honest I dont really care any more. As long as they update my system to fix the damn camera issues Ill be fine. But for now, the Camera ICS+ is doing the trick. I could honestly care less about ICS. Im over it. I really am. Or so I will keep telling my self. Until 2013 March when I can upgrade it.

    never buy moto again

    So I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands (so to speak) -- first, my Transformer is now running ICS, and second, I stopped into the local Verizon store and played with the D4 for 20 minutes.

    Plus I also installed AOKP ICS on my D3 for a bit (decided to go back to stock).

    As a whole, I have to say I'm a lot more chill about owning the D3. I WAS ABSOLUTELY LIVID back in December when launch of the D4 was imminent, but after getting a taste of ICS, plus seeing that the D4 is a great phone but not drop-dead gotta-have-it-now awesome, it doesn't bother me nearly as much to see the D3 probably won't get ICS. Like everyone else, I'll wait until there's a bug-free ICS ROM, and just do it myself. Sure I'm bitter about Motorola too -- but in 18 months I'll swap up to the best-fitting phone I can find, regardless of manufacturer. Of course, my expectations on long-term support will be as low as they can go, but that's life on the bleeding edge.

    I was hoping to see the DX on the list, but knew it would never happen.

    The typical consumer couldn't even say what dessert they're running right now....let's not kid ourselves!

    If you're reading this message board....your phone is probably rooted OR you're waiting for your manufact. warranty to end so you can do so. You're also probably monitoring hte forums for a stable ICS build.

    You're also probably one of the types who quickly does the tricks to get the OTA updates asap!

    Quit acting like this is some horrible disaster! Everyone w/a strong enough phone will be able to get ICS...either OTA, or via this forum. While the typical Android user will go "Hey...do you know how to get free apps??? Where can I find out???"

    Or "Look at how I customized my phone!" (Shows their stock phone running some widgets and something to change the icons a bit)

    Not to keep echoing my fellow d3 owners but I feel some kinda way also about not getting an update. Thanks to everyone at mavrom but that's the only thing keeping the phone with me for now. I'm happy I bought this phone off of craigslist or I would be really mad. Hopefully in April or unless I find a good deal on craigslist again I'm gonna go with HTC this time around.

    Just curious, why is this surprising to you? Is it because it's been out a year? Or because you don't think it was a successful phone?

    I have the Rezound just got it a few days ago and I'm loving it, but I also would have like to see the Charge on it. My sister has it and she loves the phone, we can hope I guess.

    Considering the fact that the Droid Charge was released AFTER the Thunderbolt, this clearly demonstrates HTC's superiority to Samsung in releasing Android updates to their phones. If I could go back in time, I would have selected the Thunderbolt instead of the Charge. Shame on you, Samsung.
