    Tired of waiting for Portico to be released by Verizon? Join the Enthusiasts Program announced by Microsoft last June.

    Uh Oh, sorry, the Enthusiasts Program is not up and running yet. The timeline for its availability is covered by the Windows Phone Team's "Cone of Silence".

    Sorry if my sarcasm is offensive to anyone but, I find it unbelievable Microsoft would announce such a program then make no mention of it again for about 8 months. Is anyone at Microsoft accountable? Apparently not.

    Just my thoughts - your mileage may vary.

    Yeah, getting pissed waiting for Portico from Bell too. Last time I called, they told me the update would be released in January, which was obviously a straight up lie.

    I have been wondering what happend with this program too, just like MS to say something like this and never deliver it. As I agree the subject line was disapointing it deserved to be said, I wish MS/Verizon read this thread tho...
    XV6700(Apache)>XV6800->HTC Touch Pro 2(XV6875) ->HTC Trophy ->VZW HTC 8X ->Nokia Lumia 928 -> Nokia Lumia ICON (929)

    There is no such thing as timely updates from Verizon. If I didn't have unlimited data I would be on AT&T by now

    Updates might not be timely, but usually bug free. Can't say the same for at&t or sprint.

    If Verizon was so stellar at testing their phones, we wouldn't have randomly re-booting 8Xs on Verizon--among the smattering of other problems. I've had plenty of Verizon handsets that have had some pretty serious software defects.

    thanks for posting this. There should be a new thread about this every week and never let Microsoft forget about one of its MANY broken promises.
