    I hope soon, and I swear I hope it fixes the glitches this phone is riddled with.

    Ex: I downloaded the GPS app Waze, right, set it up and so on.... the other night, Sunday, Im driving down to Central Park, the Boathouse, for my cousins wedding... and flipped the Google GPS on as soon as I crossed over the GW so it would take me a certain way (long story, short story if you know Manhattan).

    It comes on, and immediately says "App not responding, close app?" so I hit cancel, THEN the effin thing says I need to turn on the GPS!

    My wife, in the passenger seat, starts freaking out that Im not paying attention to the road, Im freaking out over the phone and trying to drive, and nearly got into ANOTHER accident trying to use this POS as a GPS.

    I nearly, I swear to God, threw it out the window. I wish I had it on tape, I would upload it to youtube and you can see 2 people go from calm to freaking out in under a minute due to a $600 POS.

    Remind me not get in a car with Jimmy. ;)

    My GPS always works pretty well, Google or Waze.

    It seems, to me and my experiences at least, that the GPS works great when your stopped and just go, not for turning it on while driving. In my above example the only reason I turned it on after the bridge was for it to take me a certain way I was not that familiar with, I didnt need it on from 45 minutes away and waste data. After I uninstalled Waze it seems to be fine most of the time.

    Should have used the cars GPS but it doesnt know traffic if there is...

    If they updated older phones you would have no reason to buy a new one...

    Most of us are on 2-year contracts, so keeping up with the latest software versions is important. Beyond 2 years is another story. I, for one, am thrilled that my 1-year-old phone is receiving the latest Software. We shouldn't be abandoned, with a high end phone, after one year. A year from now I will get a new phone. I should not be expected to buy a new phone every year just to keep up.

    Agreed. Where the hell is our 4.4 update?

    Don't quote me on this but someone involved in a Verizon chat over on Android Central said Jan/Feb. Which makes me overly optimistic I know.

    That seems a little off base considering the Moto X received the update to KitKat seemingly before most nexus devices even did. I would just stay away from the Droid lineup and move to a device that is available on all carriers.

    I got the Kit Kat update on my Nexus 7 (2012), no big deal as far as I can see. My phone, RAZR MAXX HD, is doing all I want it to do on 4.1.2.
