    Not that it matters but this song was wrote by Phil when he was having marital problems noting to do with drowning. Cant wait for Denim

    Absolutely not. Win10 for phones is a long time away... I'm not sure it will even be out this year. Win10 is rumored for a fall release, at best. And unlike Win10 for PCs, Microsoft will not want to send out a beta version to the public on phones (PfD for WP8.1 was the release version, not beta).

    Hmmmm....That is a maybe, as we are hearing the announcement on Jan 21st, it's a big MAYBE but, I don't think so.. Remember, this would be a "Preview Program" so it's possible they allow a preview of Windows phone 10 is...

    Where is Denim, we are 10 days into the new year and still nothing ??? I wonder what they are defining as Early 2015.....

    To me, early 2015 is anywhere in the first 3/8ths of 2015. So... Could be anytime between now and May.

    Who knows...

    most important is what it means to Verizon and it's abundantly clear that anything to do with windows phone means absolutely nothing to Verizon

    I get more pessimistic as the weeks of the new year go by that we are even going to see Verizon make the effort to push out 8.1.1/Denim to the Icon

    Not to sound rude... um... WP 8.1DP has been out for quite a while. However, it is the OS only. The Denim firmware won't be updated until Verizon ok's it for OTA.

    Congratulations on the new phone! Most of us here love our Icons and I hope you do too. Preview for Developers is definitely the way to go.

    By the way, welcome to Windows Central! Let us know if you have any questions.

    It's not even the app gap that's the issue to me. My issue is the apps that are on WP are miles behind their IOS and Android counterparts. It's updates and features that are missing for me. Yes they have the apps i want and need but not nearly as polished as other versions. One of my most favorite website, Cracked.com WP app still says "Cracked for Windows Phone 7" in the about section. Ugh!

    Good question, and I don't know the answer. I think I'll do some cleanup to open up some additional space, just in case Denim actually does make it into the wild. What? Hey, it could happen.

    That's not how updates work. It is just Denim, which will include all of and improve upon Cyan. Probably a few hundred megabytes or so...1 gigabyte at the most.

    If we close this thread, is someone going to start the "Official 8.1/Emerald for the Icon" thread first?

    I got my Icon the day it came out, with the,promise of an upgrade to 8.1 by April 2014, and other that the PFD program, which has been fantastic, I have spent the entire time I have owned the phone waiting for an update. I don't even know what I would do if I still had to be on 8.0. Quite frankly I probably would have had to get a different phone. But I do have 8.1 and stuck it out this far.

    This thread is an outlet for unrequited love, and its really a support group. If you are rocking an Icon, its an awesome phone in so many ways, but it needs the software updates to really be a finished product and Verizon... Is just not that into you.
