    As the old adage says, "Beggars can't be choosers."

    I've been on Verizon for the better half of a decade and i've used Windows Phone since its inception. And that whole time i've been just that, a beggar. That's why i'm moving my wife and myself over to AT&T in February when my contract with Verizon is up. I'm looking forward to being a chooser.

    But until then, i'd just like to see Verizon roll out Cyan.
    My family is moving to prepaid because of Verizon and their terrible support of Windows Phone. I'm not going to leave without informing them of this fact either. Can't wait for our contracts to be up in August!

    Exactly two weeks left of this year. Who thinks we'll get an update before the ball drops in Times Square?? :)

    Right now I'd say it's even money that we never get another update and that Verizon pulls all support for Windows Phone. They're certainly not showing any signs of support.

    At this point, unless you need Bluetooth 4.0 for some reason and you have the DP.... Your just getting what you have now for feature set. Personally, I am really looking forward to 4K recording, "Hey Cortana" (this is a big feature that I will use A LOT) and faster pictures...

    So, I am agree...GO Denim !!!!

    Wouldn't it be grand if Verizon was the first US carrier to release Denim?

    My main want is for Miracast support. I've had a car deck that supports it since September.

    Verizon has never been first to push out updates for anything. And to even think they would be first with Denim when they've shown no inclination to even share information about Cyan is nothing but fantasy unfortunately.

    I'm none to happy with Microsoft, either. Remaining silent in this mess is doing nobody any favors and with a 3% market share at best, this is no way to get it to increase.

    I could be wrong but I believe VZW was the first to push Black out. If not they were days behind.

    Now that Denim is flowing, with the public saying that it was sent back to Verizon 2 weeks ago, maybe they are testing Denim....Crossing fingers...

    I know a lot of people are looking forward to Cyan but, at this point, I would be disappointed if we only got Cyan...

    Agreed. If the update contains only Cyan and it's looking like we'll have to wait another 5-7 months for Denim, then I'm jumping ship from Verizon for sure.

    Yeah - the 928 was updated very early compared to other carriers. IIRC, maybe about a month after MS made Black available.

    Looks like AT&T is pushing out Denim. We're officially two updates behind.

    Yep, believe you're right. And they were often one of the first to release updates up till now.

    This post is not meant to rub anything in anyone's face, so please don't take it as that...
    However, I have a Verizonn Icon on long-term loan from a friend who used to work for Nokia. He left Nokia few months ago. I had been talking a lot about wanting to try out WP (I'm a long time Android user) and he said I could borrow this phone for a while to demo it.
    Well, the phone is (seems to be) running Lumia Denim!
    I've had it for a couple weeks now. As I've said though, I'm a newbie to WP (loving it so far though) so I don't know how to do a lot of things.
    Two things in particular I'd like to demo are 4K video recording and the "Hey Cortana" feature. I can't find how to activate either. Any assistance would be awesome. I'd be happy to try out other features and report back to the forum if anyone is curious.

    On the Extras screen, if you scroll down some you'll see the build date. I have one of these as well but just with Cyan. The build date on mine is 10/7/2014. Just curious how much later yours is? My firmware is 02061.00086.14405.24010 so yours does look newer there.

    Keep in mind that this firmware came from within Nokia. My friend is a former Nokia engineer, this was a personal phone of his. He had one of the software guys flash it with their most recent build before he left the company.

    Thanks for the pictures and story, Kieran. Quick question - do you have the ability to use Double Tap to Wake on your Icon?

    The firmware is what is throwing me off. Everything else I have on mine is showing a higher number, newer date, etc. I did just update the Extras+info and it still shows Denim for me even though I know I don't have it. I have a feeling you have the same thing I do with just Cyan on it and the Extras+info app is still buggered up.

    Mine doesn't.
    And yours is actually running Cyan, correct?
