    Made it easy to find, but not obvious. I got a kick out of it.

    Wish they would change that damn software update PDF then, the one on VZW's page still says .905 - and that was there WELL before .905 even soaked.

    I'll give VZW credit on one thing. 4G LTE in the middle of nowhere was awesome. Being able to download 246 from a camper using my Xoom, xferring it to my netbook using adb, creating a boot img on my xoom (hahaha), installing 246 on the netbook, and pulling the recovery img.....and finally creating a support installer and uploading it with the netbook tethered to the bionic using foxfi. I mean, that's insane. :D

    Wrong thinking there. 3rd party app incompatibilities are NOT valid reasons for an OTA not to pass the approval process. I believe Flash was a special circumstance since Adobe is not touching it. Normally, it's up to the app developer to fix their stupid "Super Solitaire 2048" to work on the new OS.

    Ah i guess i was under the impression that the build was the completed piece of the puzzle or that they had some kind of framework where they could adapt other things they needed easily and not entirely on a per-case basis...

    People talk about leaving for another carrier, but as far as I know, no carrier has been proven to be any better than Verizon when it comes to updates. Not only that, but no one comes close to verizon's LTE coverage. I've been with Verizon for over 10 years, it would be very hard to find a carrier that matches them.

    I really hope Lambo is right and we see our update as early as the 1st.

    Hey, just as a show of the masses, everyone should fill out this form - http://support.verizonwireless.com/pdf/Notice_of_Dispute.pdf ...... if you haven't already.


    Simply fill out the above form asking for a credit for each month of service where you couldn't reliably use 4G.

    If they don't agree then according to the Verizon contract you can ask for Arbitration or go to Small Claims Court.

    On Moto's forum a report of a $15/mo credit for data issues was mentioned. If everyone sent one of these in requesting compensation, I think it will give GooMoto a little more backing to their position.

    Who knows, maybe a lawyer out there somewhere might want to pick up a class-action....... What do you think?

    Um, it's a well known FACT that VZW is the worst at approving updates. The VZW S3 is the *ONLY* locked version in the world, and is *GUARANTEED* to be LAST getting the JB update. Don't kid yourself in thinking all carriers are as bad as VZW with locked bootloaders and lack of updates. It's not even close.

    My point about LTE coverage stands though, no one comes close. Not even that, but 3G as well. You can be driving out west with AT&T or sprint and forget about having a data signal, hell even a talking signal. Meanwhile in the same car I had my Bionic and I had strong 3G coverage.

    Im not defending verizon, just saying no one comes close.

    I didn't argue against LTE coverage. I was simply pointing out that other carriers are not even CLOSE to as bad as VZW is in providing updates and requiring locked bootloaders. And what I've learned about "coverage" is it only matters where you happen to be. Meaning if I had coverage at home and work I'd be good to go. My major vacation spots are already covered by both VZW and AT&T.
