    Still no cyan yet denim is coming... This is getting ridiculous. Would love to get that new Miracast dongle they announced but at this rate icon owners won't even see the compatible firmware until 2015.

    Microsoft shouldn't even announce these things until the carriers are on board with immediate release. It's not like the new phones will have an installed base of any significance for developers anyway.

    No, but AT&T are with the 920/820 today. Really Verizon? Really??

    I am about to give up on getting Cyan or Denim and am instead hoping Microsoft releases a developer preview of windows phone 9 soon as is rumored. At this rate I will likely be able to update to the preview of that OS before I get the official Cyan/Denim update.

    Verizon is always last so seeing ATT get rolled out is good news for Verizon customers. #silverlining

    Verizon really thinks because they have a slight edge over AT&T in total subscribers, that puts them as the No. 1 provider in the US, that they have this attitude and it shows. I hate having to go into a Verizon store for anything, because we use Verizon at work whenever I want to swap phones or need something, I can hardly get any assistance from anyone once they know two things 1) I'm not there to buy a phone or add a line, and 2) I'm a business account customer. Verizon customer service is really terrible, actually they suck.

    I'm gonna hold my breath if I don't get a cookie. Sorry but do you think your threat means anything to big red? Ya I'm unhappy that I haven't gotten the cyan update yet but I am running the developer update and Verizon has the best coverage in the area and that is more important.

    Nope. But this has all been covered previously in the thread.

    It's not like AT&T had been much faster, didn't they just push cyan out today for most of their phones?

    Today was just the 2 phones, the 920 and the 820, I've had the official Cyan update on my 925 for a few weeks now, and I didn't update as soon as it came out.

    This is the only reason I would consider switching to Apple. They control their own updates, not the carriers. Waiting for updates is the norm with Windows Phones and Android non Nexus phones...The lack of communication by Verizon on this issue is pretty standard unfortunately.

    to complete your VZW retail store experience I'll suggest telling them:
    3)you have a Windows Phone, not an iPhone or a Droid, and then you will experience the full force of the "A+ customer service" at your local VZW store

    Seriously? Stop acting like a spoiled child. There are plenty of worse things in the world than not being first in line for a firmware update for your phone.

    Agreed but, I would bet almost everyone in this chat with at least 8 posts in this thread....Is extremely stressed about and really pissed off about it..

    Also gota remember, this is a Verizon thing...If you have owned other Verizon phones besides the iPhoney, you have been last getting updates... I've been through this many it with Verizon...it's getting really old...

    After about 3 weeks of waiting, I give up, I just don't care any more....but, for some DAM reason I keep watching and replying to this thread...habit I guess ?

    I think Apple got it right in one aspect... They control the hardware AND the software updates. I think MSFT/Nokia should at least adopt this model for Lumia phones.

    Yea, 1 or 2 phones (current models) for Apple, not 25 or so from different brands too.... and Apple still has that power in the marketplace, so it's mandatory that their updates are released on one day (they give companies plenty of time for testing before announcing), if they don't, apple will pull out of the stores...

    Something I would love to see happen :)

    Apple also has zero competition which is why they have zero other considerations with the carriers. They also provide tech support in their stores and have likely arranged to cover any device malfunctions for the carriers. As soon as Microsoft allowed any manufacturer to produce WPs, it opened the floodgates. Say a carrier wants an exlusivity contract, there are terms and stipulations. Say a company wants a logo on their device, there are contract clauses about that too. If Microsoft were to close the OS in Windows Phone Threshold and manufacture in house, they might be able to ink a contract with one US carrier with Apple level control. Maybe Sprint would agree to it? Remember the Palm Pre...

    Wow. You're generous. My mind was made up earlier today.

    Kinda funny to see people get so worked up over this. Without a doubt Verizon sucks for taking so long, but Microsoft helped create this issue by backdooring their developer releases. What really frustrates me is just how much basic functionality I'm missing such as Bluetooth LE. I picked up a Nokia Treasure Tag from Verizon the other day at 33% off, can't help but think they would have sold many more units if they had promptly pushed Cyan.

    One thing I really don't get is how MS/Nokia keep pushing the Icon as being a flagship device that will receive updates first, guessing they aren't using Verizon as their plans are really getting screwed over by VZ.

    On a side note I think its obvious that all US carriers are crap at pushing updates, Android updates for the most part are the opposite with VZ pushing updates earlier than AT&T.
