    The only thing i've ever expected from this phone as far as updates is disappointment.

    At least they are consistent.

    I work for Microsoft and I know people internally who are testing it. I can't say much since what i say could (and shouldn't) be construed as "official", but trust me it really is close.
    Any idea where it stands with AT&T. They haven't released it either and the 1520.3 hasn't seen Denim either.

    @idguy @thurrott @tomwarren I had a nice chat w/ @joebelfiore last night. Got some background on the Icon issue and expect update soon.
    Reading the whole conversation made me less excited.

    @Letter_T Not sure how to answer that. ☺ I got the impression that the situation is about to be settled.

    "Situation" ...

    ATT phones got Cyan. The Icon is still at Black.

    The 1520.3 is not carrier branded so it should get Denim directly from Microsoft.

    Lets face it. The ICON is never going to get another update. No 8.1 no 8.1.1 no 10. Nothing, nadda.. zip, zero, zilch, goose egg. That's my story and I am sticking to it. It is an easy story because it is true. Verizon does not care, they won't ever care and they can't wait till Windows Phone is a foot note in the mobile phone history books. A bump in the road, a slight detour from the main road filled with Apple and Google.

    Sad, but true.

    Crack head Verizon just sent me a New Years resolutions email. And it tells me to start using Cortana.. Wha? And the email has my device and 4 last digits of my phone number at the bottom of the email. So, they know I have an ICON and suggest that I use Cortana. Well, that is another slap in the face!

    Hey now... Crack heads are much more respectable than Verizon reps. Does the Icon image have Cortana on it? If so, does it reference the DP in order to get it.

    Okay, devil's advocate, at least most phones don't have denim yet. And by that I mean real denim, not just the OS update and the name. Again, playing devil's advocate, maybe the cyan firmware didn't play nicely with the CDMA radios and by the time they had a fix, denim was so close they just decided to bundle it. It's unlikely, but I'm just trying to remain optimistic.

    I think it's really too bad that you have this frame of mind. The fact of the matter is that it's already been announced, and confirmed among major cellular carriers including Verizon, that this update will be arriving in early February. So be a little more patient, because the Icon will be getting Cortana in the next few weeks.

    As for everyone railing against Verizon, keep in mind that they do all of this, for YOU. They want the experience that a customer gets to be so phenomenal, and bug-free, that they test the crap out of not only software updates, but new phones in general, to make sure it lives up to their standards. This is so that when you do finally get the new phone, or the update, you won't have to go through all kinds of hassle because something was overlooked and now your phone isn't working and as a result you've missed an important business call, etc. Is it sucky to have to wait? Sure it is. But would I rather a top-notch, properly working bug-free product? Definitely. It's like when a gaming company delays the launch of their new game so they can work out the bugs they found. Gamers hate having to wait longer, but when the game finally launches and it's a gorgeous game with little to no issues, it was SO worth the wait.

    Found the Verizon employee.

    But in all seriousness, it's been nearly a year since a VERY functional WP8.1 Developer Preview has been out for Windows Phone. The Nokia Lumia 930, which is the Icon's international doppelganger, has been out for nine months. And it's very functional.

    We've heard this "working out the bugs" argument so many times. It's tired, worn out, and simply exhausted.

    By the way - Welcome to Windows Central! Glad to have you here. Even if I firmly disagree with your sentiment.

    I agree with indistinguishable. The only issue I have with the developer preview on my icon is the atrocious battery life, and that's because of Lumia black. I'd prefer a faster release that has some bugs that get fixed with later updates then one bug free update that takes forever to come to devices, and I'd be willing to bet that others feel the same way. If you care so much, why not let people do that, and notify everyone when the update has reached stable for people who do prefer stable releases get it when they want. Cyanogenmod does that, why can't you?

    Also, and I hope nobody gets fired over this, I don't recall anyone saying early February. This would make sense, February technically IS early 2015, and would tie in with people enigmatically saying it's close like a street preacher talking about the rapture 😁. Anyway, it's given me enough hope to go on thinking maybe Verizon isn't completely horrible, until March, when I'm still on Black, cursing big red's name. But maybe I'm wrong. Please Verizon, prove me wrong

    yes I understand Verizon has nothing but the utmost respect for Icon owners and WP in general it's crystal clear

    month after month with no updates, news, or anything I tell myself everyday how VZ is doing everything they can for ME and I am thankful

    after I finish this post I will start the paperwork on getting Verizon nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2015
