    They are "working with Microsoft" so I think what I said earlier seems very plausible.

    So with the news yesterday of gdr2 updates being shown on Microsoft's wp8 page, I dug further into their page... Clicked "messaging experience" under messaging improvements, then "send a text or chat"... Under notes, there is a bullet point for group text where they disclaim that the group text option might not be available on all carriers. Although I don't know what this page said before the gdr2 info, I am pessimistic we will get it now.

    I will switch carriers if it isn't included in GDR2.

    Just waiting for gdr2 update... I think were all banking on that being the cure. No telling when that will be exactly but I'm hoping any day now for my HTC 8x. Can't stand not having group mms. Such a pain

    So it's been a little while and I've been pestering both HTC and Verizon pretty much everyday. HTC has been stonewalling pretty hard, saying they don't even know if there is going to be an update ever for the HTC 8x on VZW. VZW's take is that an update is still somehow in the pipeline.

    I'm ready to say screw it and get a Lumia 928 w/ GDR2.

    I'll personally wait not too much longer. If anything, I'll switch out to AT&T (company phone) and tell VZW to sit and spin. Ebay prices are not kind for going 3rd party sale on a 928, and 2-year contracts are the bane of my existence.

    I've made enough noise at VZW that someone relatively high up is going to call me this afternoon.

    By relatively high I mean either a high level support or a middle manager of customer relations. I'm going to guess they are either going to tell me to stop bothering them everyday or that something is indeed happening so be patient. Or maybe they'll offer me a Lumia 928. And a winning powerball ticket.

    So I called and asked again.

    This time I'm getting an unofficial answer of "by the end of the week". They indicated that the roll-outs are divided by make and model, which is why some (lumia 928, 822) got it before others (htc 8x). How they are divided and prioritized is some combination of sales, available resources, blood type, credit score, and the weather in Madagascar.

    Available now on the 8x. Looks like the move to Lumia will have to wait.
