    Insurance is not voided in any way for rooting or tinkering of any kind. It's just the manufacturer's warranty that gets voided if they discover that you have rooted or altered your device's firmware. Seeing as your manufacturer's warranty has been expired for months now, you have nothing to worry about. But your insurance certainly doesn't get voided for rooting or anything of the such.

    Everything I've read says it "Is" getting the 4.4 update. When is a different story.

    Verizon phones, particularly the DROID line, are up to Verizon when they will update not the manufacturer. Verizon have to test their bloat and auction off more space on your phone first. All seriousness droid line phones are Verizon's show phone that is supposed to be what they think and feel a phone should be (ie nexus but Verizon's vision and not Google's). Verizon is going to take their time even more now after the thunderbolt fiasco. Looks like the Motorola x line, providing lenovo does not change things, will be the device to buy if you want fast updates. All other devices have to deal with skins, custom manufacturer software, custom carrier software, and hardware limitations (which should no longer be the case with kit Kat).

    And in the end..what does it matter how long it takes? How many people do you know that ask you: "what version of Android do you have?" Does anyone just stop you in the street and ask that? At social gatherings? At cookouts? A lot of people don't even know the difference between the Android OS and the Droid line of phones. Our phones are meant to keep us in touch with the people that are important to us..who really cares what OS is installed on the phone? Some people do...and that's cool...technology is a passion for some...and a hobby for others. But, the average user has no idea what OS is installed on their phone right now, this minute, and nor do they care. A new OS should not be the deciding factor in phone happiness. If someone doesn't like their phone on Android Jelly Bean, they probably won't like it on Android Snicker-Doodle 22 either! Updates will be released when they are released...we cannot change that. There are much bigger issues in life than what OS our phone has on it today.

    I just want my phone stop being so damn buggy!

    Every week this thing has some new issue, and its not just me. Like when I get in the car, oh it pairs, but music? Some days yes, some days no... why? Who knows. When the battery is low, it will show say 14%, then quickly jump to 4%. The horrific touch screen response time (many BIG reviewers have brought this one up). The lag, even after a cache wipe is really bad at times.

    I could go on, I dont know why people get so offended when I get down and gritty about these issues.

    I said it before and I will say it again, its sad that my old iPod Touch 4th Gen (almost 5 years old) out performs this thing.
