    Since the phone has been in testing so long, I have to wonder if there is an issue with it. I know my 8X has texting issues still, and I've heard that the 928 and 822 are riddled with bugs, too. I feel like it is very probable that since Verizon is CDMA, it may be having some issues with the Icon.

    I have the 822 from day one, never had any major bugs or problems.

    Same here, not a single problem with my 822.

    My 928 has a weird bug related to not wanting to use Wifi when it has an LTE signal (even when its barely available) and my girlfriends 8x hasn't been able to send texts for the past week or so. Its all about luck with these things.

    That said, I think Verizon was tweaking the design (specs slightly changed on the website with recent leaks) and they are probably waiting to release it with Black

    My 8x on Verizon will have texts fail from time to time. A quick power cycle normally fixes it. Other than that I haven't had issues. Each OS update seems to improve performance as well.

    I think they are waiting for black as well as making sure Isis works properly on it.

    They will have a decent marketing campaign which has to be planned as well.

    What? Where did you get that idea?

    They were developed by imperfect humans.

    My 8x also has the issue of not sending texts occasionally... that being said it is possible that bugs could be holding it up.

    As is every device. But the 822 and 928 are just as "riddled" with bugs as every other smartphone out there.

    I haven't heard of those bugs, most people seem very happy with their 928's from what I've read.

    I also, as the date slips doubt it's them waiting for the Black Update. After all that was available in Dec when the 1520 was announced. I think with MVC just a month away with WP8.1 phones rumoured to be announced, they've just shelved the phone and are waiting for 8.1.

    After all who is really going to buy a phone that is going to be superseded in a month? They may be tinkering it so that it will work better with 8.1 and not be outdated too fast.

    Joe_Easton, you just need to toggle airplane mode for your texts to start working again. Don't waste time with a full system reboot. Of course, you still have to copy and paste your text into a new field after doing so, but it still saves at least a minute of your time.

    What are you guys talking about "waiting for black"? The 1520 launched with black in November. I'm certain that the Icon will launch with black on it because it was designed to have it from the beginning. It doesn't make sense for a new generation of phone to wait until the older generation gets an update. It actually gives less incentive to update.

    The people that would buy it would be those that realize that any 'new' phones probably wouldn't be coming to Verizon untill 6 months after other carriers have them. Then it comes down to either having the most current phone now (Icon), waiting 6 months for the next new phone, or jumping carriers to get more state-of-the-art specs. The same choices we always have to make.

    The Icon might just be a myth too, someone just likes to screw with us.

    Hopefully they aren't waiting for 8.1, I'm going to have to upgrade sooner than that.

    I wouldn't say the Icon is a myth, but I guess it could still be scrapped since it hasn't been officially announced. However, I feel like that would waste a lot of money for Nokia and Verizon.

    I agree, however, that the Icon is going to be the top-of-the-line Windows Phone for Verizon for at least six months. I mean, even if HTC or Samsung release a high-end WP8.1 phone, I, one, don't think it'll reach Verizon until at least July, and two, would still choose the Nokia phone (even though I have loved all of my HTC smartphones).

    I'm on my 5th or 6th 928. If you use the headphone jack daily, in about two weeks the phone stops being able to recognize when the headphones are plugged in and when not. The result is not being about to hear callers through the top speaker. Major flaw, not inherent to just one batch.

    As per, WP8.1 Blue, Release to Manufacturers March, Devs – April, Users May : My Nokia Blog users won't see 8.1 till May. I don't think VZW is going to hold Icon till then if this is true.

    This is Verizon and a Windows Phone we're talking about here. There will be no marketing campaign.

    This whole subsection is filled with people making rumors of a rumor. You want to see rumors about rumors about rumors? Head over to the "Upcoming and Rumored Device" section. The mods have since cleaned it up a bit, but jeez...

    Happened to me. On my second tho.

    But as for the comment about the 822's, man those things are tanks! I know a lot of people with them who have had zero issues and even tell me that they are such sturdy reliable devices (both physically and software wise)

    There was an "easy" fix that one member said he did and said was going to post up a How-To. That How-To is nowhere to be seen.

    You mean rumored rumors like... the Icon shipment was on a cargo ship from China to the US, but then the ship got boarded by Somalian pirates, and then they activated a high-tech microwave emitter that fried all the circuits (hense the crippling issues). Batman tried to stop them but he was too late. Don't bother asking what Somali pirates were doing in the Pacific... its a long story and I don't want to get into it.

    That story is better than nothing, which is what we have so far.

    That's not a rumor though, that's an undeniable fact. My sister's former roommate's brother's best friend's penpal was aboard the ship that was captured by the pirates, and he saw it with his own two eyes. Which is strange because he's blind, but this is all totally true.

    thanks for the tip, I'll try that next time I have issues
