    I've had the 8x since launch and like many of you have been eagerly awaiting the Portico (version 8.0.10211.204) update on Verizon. HTC told me last week they had released it to Verizon, so it was no longer up to them. One of my coworkers received a new ATIV Odyssey for testing on our corporate network today, and when I had a chance to look at it I realized it has Portico installed. Does anyone know if new/replacement 8x's and 822's are shipping from Verizon with the update installed from the factory? Would love to hear from anyone who purchased either recently

    They will not contain newer updates unless Verizon releases update to all. Verizon's history on releasing update is not good. You probably should expect zero chance to get any update.

    C'mon foxbat. I bought a Trophy in spring of '12 and received 7.5 very shortly after it was released. Vzw reputation on WP isn't as terrible as everyone like to make it out to me. I'm optimistic.

    FYI, WP 7.5 was release in middle of 2011, not Spring of 2012.

    Which still makes your silly statement about a "zero chance" of getting an update 100% false.

    Why would one expect zero chances of an update with no evidence to support that?

    I manage a similar group, they don't get any information on updates. Engineering will process the update and deploy it, and then tech support will be informed.

    HTC8X - Verizon
    OS v. 8.0.10211.204
    Firmware v. 1532.20.20011.605
    Hardware v. 0002
    Radio S/W v. 0.17.50.1218
    Radio H/W v. 2.126.3.D4
    Bootloader v.0.0.1532.20(162930)

    What's new....(verified)
    Portico update
    KB2788409
    KB2788410
    KB2788412
    WiFi - 'Keep WiFi on when screen times out' (toggle)
    WiFi - WiFi HotSpot Finder [previously there]
    SMS/MMS - edit forwarding messages
    SMS - select all option to delete
    SMS - save unsent text messages in Draft
    SMS - multi select recipients
    Calls - ignore w/SMS text reply(samples/custom)
    Ringtone - ability to add/use MP3 as Ringtone [ability previously there]

    What's new...(in question/unknown/not found yet)
    WiFi - priortize WiFi connection based on usage
    WiFi (?) - auto re-try w/connectivity
    Bluetooth - profile performance improvement
    Browser History - increased management flexibility (selective removal?)
    Calls - restrict calls to limited list of numbers
    Other improvements unlisted in changelogs

    What missed the boat...(confirmed not present)
    Browser - prevent pics from auto d/l (toggle)

    So that's what I found new/missing/still unknown w/re to my update today. Some items are unverifiable. Your mileage may vary...in particular the Browser selective history delete and auto pic d/l *seems* like it should have come along with the update, but I sure can't find the items.

    Anybody have those Browser items, or the restrict call numbers or WiFi(?) auto re-try?
