    Upon reading your email, you are still waiting for the Nokia Lumia Cyan Update and the Windows Phone 8.1 Update for your Nokia Lumia 928 and Nokia Lumia Icon. In response to your concern, please be advised that the roll out timings and feature availability vary by phone model. The Nokia Lumia Cyan Update that includes the Windows Phone 8.1 Update will start rolling out this summer following testing and operator approvals.

    You will get an update notification once these updates was available. You can automatically check for the updates on a weekly basis. If you have a Wi-Fi connection, it will download the update once it was available. To change the settings, or manually check for updates, just tap Settings > Phone Update. You can also refer to the link below:

    In other words - it's coming. Eventually. When we get around to it. So not much point in speculation since real info is non-existent.

    The guy sitting in the little back room at Verizon labs doing the actual testing would be a better person to ask.
    He's probably had it running on his phone for awhile.

    We can hope. What galls me is the fact that we spent for the top end WP and get no attention in return. Of course this is Verizon, so I should be used to it.

    It *was* the top end, but now that designation belongs to the HTC One (M8) !!!

    Well, I suppose if what you want is speaker and gigahertz. For camera and a robust body (and still darned fast) the Icon is still on top. That's not to say that the M8 isn't an awesome WP.

    If you want a camera, get the 1520 or the Icon. For everything else get the M8!

    Same here, I went into a AT&T store just to look and play with the 1520....Yea, it was huge but, it would make a lot of things easier, so I would be all over this if I could get one on Verizon.... well, the one with the MicroSD slot, yea it would be a done deal..

    I've gotten responses from him in the past, but not this time. I tweeted him about this issue. No response as of yet. I'll keep tweeting him I guess. Maybe he'll get mad at Verizon and pull the lever without their permission and then tell them OOPS!

    I knew about the M8 before I purchased my Icon. I went with the Icon mainly because I like the look / design of it and because I am not a fan of the HTC One and M8 speaker system. It makes the phone much larger than the screen size would dictate.

    I played around with a 1520 in an AT&T store and while it was a very nice phone, that thing was huge.. And I mean huge! It made my Icon look like a toy..

    Well looking at the US availability, it seems that only AT&T has Cyan whilst VZW = three minors do not.
    This may be VZW's foot dragging or some MS problem that AT&t was willing to finesse or has solved. Between VZW and MS which is more willing to lie? How low can they go?
    The minor severs gives a little more support for VZW and less for MS

    It appears I've found bigfoot, aka the Verizon CSR who has a clue.

    I have a 928 but I figured I'd share this here since the discussion is more active and it's obviously a general Verizon issue.
    Pretty much all I can say at this point is we're not going to get a straight answer on this so rather than fighting a losing battle we should refocus from inquiring about the release and towards calling them out for lack of transparency. By whatever means possible we need to get the message past the low level customer service filter and to the people in control that staying silent on the issue is not the way to treat their customers.

    If Verizon gets a Lumia phablet, I'm edging up.

    Still the fact is, and it's always been that way, Verizon NEVER gives out release dates for updates, till they are done testing and ready for release. The problem is, and I would almost bet on this. Verizon had the update well over a month before they started testing or doing anything for their network. So by the time they touch it, it's already been through the hands of other carriers and tested...

    This is why AT&T devices get it sooner, because they actually care, Verizon is we are the biggest and best so who cares about everything else...

    Dealing with this crap from the day I had a Moto v60i on Verizon....Same boat, a big fix to fix a major bug on the phone, AT&T released it over a month and 1/2 before Verizon did...

    Nothing new and if AT&T was able to get TMOUS (their network would of been as good as Verizon in most areas) I would of changed carriers a long time ago because of this...

    I used to have a Galaxy Note II. It was nice and I thought it would be useful, but it was way to big for my needs. So instead of staying in the Android ecosystem, I moved to the 928, and now the Icon. I've played with the 1520 and I agree that it is a nice phone, but way to big. I think the 4.5" - 5" screen size range is the sweet spot. Most people can handle it one handed, and you get really good resolution. Anything bigger is just overkill (and possibly somebody compensating )...

    No it doesn't. The m8 doesn't even compare to the icon, with its washed out blacks and 5mp camera!

    The M8 has a beautiful screen, and is currently the fastest Windows Phone on the market. There's a reason why Daniel and Mary Jo are using this device, because its awesome.

    I don't own one, and I don't plan on buying it, but when I see a person slamming it for no reason it always makes me wonder why.

    I played with the HTC at the store and I was not impressed. Don't get me wrong, it is a decent phone, but the Icon is still better. Faster does not ALWAYS mean better. There are a lot of other things the Icon has that the HTC doesn't. Camera quality, screen quality, audio recording quality, just to name a few.

    Fastest ? Maybe a little, they show some numbers but, in the real world, it's not a major difference. It's like taking a PC that is 2.5ghz and going to 3.0ghz....Yea, a hair faster depending on what you doing but, not going to change the world in speed. Difference ? Yea, open a big game, say, Real Racing 2 for example, it will take a 1/2 a second faster on the M8, maybe even 1 second, is that really going to change the world ?

    They are both good phones, in this case, is one better than the other ? Depends on your needs, it really does. If you need expandable storage and taking a hit on the camera, then the M8 is for you, If you want about the same speed but, a really great camera, the ICON/930 is for you.

    The reason why Daniel and Mary Jo are using it because it's the newest phone. They tend to always use the higher end new phones.
