    Yeah I've been nicking upgrades off the other lines. I need to stop changing phones so dang fast. 2/3 smartphones I've bought weren't even my line's upgrades. My mom still uses an Alias 2 and for some reason the thing is still going.

    ehh, i'm not leaving Verizon. whatever. they seem to be getting more and more Windows Phones lately. and sometimes they're quick with updates, sometimes they're slow. it's pick your poison with carriers. it's not like AT&T is always quick with updates, and they don't have the Lumia 930/Icon. I'm content with Verizon

    I thought those of us with the developers preview can't go back to WP 8. I did a hard reset on a phone I gave to a friend that I had developers preview on and it remained as WP 8.1 OS when I was done. Does this mean we can't get the Cyan update or that we have it already pretty much with the preview?

    Alternatively, buy an unlocked 930 and get updates direct from Lumia SW Updater.

    Yeah, They already rolled out iOS 8... Why didn't Verizon do all the Testing on the Apple IOS. They let that go right through... They did not tell all the iPhone users "Well, we are still testing, we don't know when it will be available for DL" do you think Apple would take that crap. MS needs to get on Verizons *** about this if they really care about their hardware sales. Again Nadela dropping the ball...

    I can explain that real simply. Apple has power, Verizon agreed to let them release their own software, and they could sell the phone. You see Verizon really wanted to sell the iPhone.

    You think Verizon wants to be the only carrier that doesn't have the hottest cell phone in the world available on day one? They don't give a damn about Android or Windows Phone updates, because hardly anyone cares. Completely different with iOS.

    Yep, and since Verizon does not care about WP then just release the damn update... Why are they so concerned for our safety all of a sudden. Probably iOS 8 has some major security bugs that they'll just let slip right through. So it seems the way they are acting they care much more about us WP users then iOS users. Ha Ha [Sarcasm]. I think to that WPC should call MS and Verizon and find out what is going on rather then just "WE DON"T KNOW"

    1. As mentioned above, the delay has to do with marketing, not anything software related. The HTC One M8 for Windows is the lone phone with the latest software, and they want to keep it that way for a while longer.

    2. I agree that these are the sort of things where it's noticeable how sites like WP Central is really just a very well done and active blog/fan community. A real journalistic enterprise would be more concerned with covering this sort of things in depth and trying to get anonymous sources to speak on the record about how things actually work.

    It's been pretty obvious for a long time that WP central is not a place to come for "fair and balanced" this place is a walking Microsoft advert. nothing more.

    I want this update as badly as anyone but frankly, unless you have something to back that up with, I'm calling BS on it. Verizon is always late with Android and WP updates. Lose the tinfoil hat. This isn't about a conspiracy, it's about indifference.

    That doesn't seem entirely fair.

    It's a fan website. Not an advertisement. No one at Mobile Nations is paid by Microsoft. Mobile devices are a hobby and interest for a lot of people, thus there's a demand for communities like Mobile Nations to facilitate said people.

    Only reasonable speculation and the posts in this thread by tcman88 who seems reliable. I guess we'll see if Cyan is released in October since he said that's when HTC One M8 for Windows' exclusivity is over.

    The fact that they're always late (if it is a fact, I haven't looked into it and have only been with them since April) does nothing to negate this, of course. I'm sure any tardiness with Android is for the same reason.

    The way I see it, I paid for the device (Icon), I also pay monthly fees for service, there are updates that correct issues and improve the device and Verizon is showing negligence by not allowing me to have those updates. Is like if BMW offers updates to their vehicles and the dealer says "well, I'll let you have it when I want to so sit and wait until I say so". What would happen then? That dealer would be in trouble and even face fines. With VZW, in the meantime, we cannot enjoy new features or get fixes in our phones. Verizon should have to pay or credit us for their negligence. Just sayin'

    Getting pretty annoyed with Verizon and the Icon. My Icon is having some heating issues (hot, hot, HOT!) again, Wifi is still lacking, I am missing some calls, and I am not going to go through the hassle of a wipe/refresh of the OS again. I am hoping Cyan will fix these issues.

    Before I moved from my 925 (At&t), 8.1 DP didn't give me any trouble. Bought an Icon when we switched to Verizon at the end of this past May and am now seeing reoccurring problems that you see above. Yes, I can revert back to 8, but that essentially takes away a LOT of features that I have been using since April.

    In all honesty, I have been thinking of just paying the balance to EdgeUp. I really like(ed) Windows Phone, but there is only so much of this that I can take. I'm finding it harder and harder to recommend WP to friends, as I am losing trust in it myself.

    Not be funny or maybe it is. But it's Microsoft OS, what else would they advertise?

    Those instructions are correct; the problem is that 8.0 is no longer available to download. It only allows you to download the 8.1 version and nothing earlier. I would check this out if I were you.

    Just loaded up the Nokia Software Recovery Tool with my ICON connected. 1028.3566.1417.0047 is the firmware version available which will load 8.0.
