    I know with the last update we icon user's did not get cyan. According to neowin more lumias will soon get cyan. Many more Lumia handsets running Windows Phone preview are now getting Cyan - Neowin so don't go back to Ios or Android because Microsoft is working on it. We will get cyan. Be patient.

    We Will Not Get Cyan Till Verizon Releases The Update And Not Before Then
    Those Updates Are Only For Carriers That Have Already Released The WP8.1 and Cyan Update
    But Was Blocked By Microsoft For Preview For Developers ONLY.

    WHEN WILL PEOPLE GET THIS RIGHT. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ICON TILL VERIZON GET"S OFF THEIR DEAD *** AND RELEASES IT> PERIOD< END OF F"ING STORY>

    As a Verizon customer myself, I get what you are saying. At least Microsoft lets us update our OS with DP. Getting what we want from Verizon is like herding Cats. If you want to know what I mean ask an Android user on Verizon. I remember having an Xperia Play on Verizon they never updated the phone to Android Ice Cream Sandwich. At least I am happy with Windows phone because I can get 8.1 through DP without waiting for Verizon to get it's proverbial head out of it's @$$, to get win 8.1.

    According to wmpoweruser all developers preview users will have cyan in the next three weeks, that includes Verizon users. I guess we will see...

    I will believe when I see it.

    They stated everyone, but that is extremely vague.
    There is no indication in that statement that they actually mean everyone.
    It's hopeful wishing to think that.
    People are reading way more into it than is actually there.

    They are really referring to, only DP users on carriers that have actually released the update already and MS is releasing the block for everyone.

    No indication whatsoever that VZW, Tmo and others will get it as well.

    How did you conclude that it includes Verizon users? NOTHING said about this says anything about Verizon.

    Did you make that up yourself?

    I'm ready to give up on this site. The levels of reading comprehension here are at about a kindergarten level I think.

    The word "ALL" has a pretty specific meaning!

    Or it could mean, "All DP users(with cyan available) will get the update." It's not like they haven't said they are working on fixing the issue of updating DP to cyan...

    At the earliest we'll get it 10-7, but I'd imagine we should just expect it at the end of the month to keep our expectations in line with Verizon.

    the only thing at this point I will believe is when I will see the actual update on my Icon, it's frustrating that a flagship windows phone has been treated like this by Verizon

    a update of any kind (good news or bad) from Verizon about the Icon instead of complete and utter silence from big red would make all our lives easier then having to rely on unsubstantiated rumors

    I guess since we are not drinking the iPhone or Droid kool-aid this is how WP is going to be treated by Verizon

    Sorry for being grumpy, but it's clear that it means all Preview phones where the Cyan update has already been made available. Since it hasn't been made available on Verizon, it's not included in this "all".

    For me, I guess, the handwriting should be on the wall with T-Mobile. They took forever to update my 925 & 521 to Black and now taking forever to update to Cyan. I think I'll be moving in to AT&T from henceforth; at least the AT&T Lumia 925 has received the Cyan update.

    There is talk that on the Icon's. Verizon is thinking of combining Cyan with Denim, but knowing big red I take this rumor with a grain of salt. All I am going to say is going Android or even Iphone will not solve the problem. Support Windows on Verizon something will happen. Besides Verizon still uses Bing as its search engine on it's mobile home page. So more support for Windows on Verizon might help us icon users.

    I think your message had just as much emphasis in what you said even if you didn't have the caps. It just looked silly to me. I appreciate you hammering the forums and getting people to spread the word. I made a Twitter account just so i could ask about Cyan at least once per day haha!

    It's funny that I own the two Windows Phones that are last to the party (521 and Icon). Thanks Verizon and T-Mobile.

    Good, wish more would do that.

    Let's call it frustrated emphasis then. It's not my normal way of posting. But felt it called for it.

    Question to anyone more technologically knowledgeable than me: Would any of this have to do with most of T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint's devices being carrier unique phones that don't exist elsewhere in the world?

    That handwriting was on the wall way back with the 810.

    No, not at all.
    they would blame the Bitlocker fiasco with DP. But that is mostly irrelevant due to the fact that the largest majority of people
    were not even using bitlocker at the time.
    ATT had no problems rolling out the updates, and only a few people were affected by the Bitlocker issue
    But MS decided to put a block on it anyway, not a bad move on their part. But this was ONLY for Dev Preview users
    NOT Everyone,, so those carriers have no excuse for not releasing it.

    they are not releasing it, cause they do not care about it, and they want to push other devices.

    More people need to start hammering these carriers via Twitter, Facebook and calling them.
    start lighting up their boards and make it difficult to do anything else.

    It has nothing at all to do with the device. It's the Carriers being A-Holes.
