    I keep checking to see if there's an update, and every time it takes more than a couple of seconds I get super hopeful....aaaaaaaand then I'm let down.

    Hey guys it's the last Tuesday of the month.

    Prepare to check for updates in T - 2.5hrs.
    What does Tuesday have to do with it?

    Denim for 822 and 928 came out on a Friday...

    Although it would be a good way to pass the time during this blizzard....

    There's a misconception that Verizon releases updates on Tuesdays. I have no idea why it gets perpetuated after multiple updates have been released on days other than Tuesdays.

    Even when we had that false call when Tcman88 said that cyan was supposed to be released, it was 6pm on a Friday.

    Okay, it's bothered me for a while now, and I have to ask. What's the deal with your signature?

    What about it?

    It's a segment of a picture from this article that highlights the similarity in design of the Surface 2 & the Lumia Icon. Which happen to be my two favorite devices. Nokia Lumia Icon versus Microsoft Surface 2 ? born of the same design language? | Windows Central

    This is disturbing. Here is a twitter conversation between Eric Grover, Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott: "VZW Support just confirmed to me that Denim update for Icon has been postponed due to issues found in testing."

    I question the credibility. This Eric Grover mentioned a "chat script". Chat script = VZW customer service rep = doesn't have the slightest idea as to the testing status of a phone.

    Yup. They read from a script that is at best weeks old. No change, nothing to see.

    Absolutely. This is nothing new. Chat reps don't know anything.

    Since the phone's one year anniversary will be next month, I wonder if they will do the update before it turns one year. Or they will let q1 go by and say it will be out "soon".

    Considering the Icon release was delayed several months last year, there is no chance Verizon has this sentiment. If it happens then, it will be no more than a strange coincidence.

    Here is the relevant part of the chat (which Eric Grover posted elsewhere on these forums)
    Will: Okay, so I did locate something - there's a canned statement, but honestly, I'm not going to give you that, because (correct me if I'm wrong) you don't strike me as the kind of person who wants a copy/paste answer, so here's what I can say:
    Will: There were issues identified during testing, resulting in postponing the release. Due to those issues, there isn't a release date that can be given until testing is finished. The idea here is that we want to make sure a working software is released, not anything that's going to cause problems for you.
    Translated: "You're obviously too smart to know when someone's shoveling bullcrap on you, so here's a few spadefuls of cow manure."

    So then we should all get our hopes up--and then eventually let down--for this Friday? Can't wait.

    ...Chat reps don't know anything.
    i don't really like to listen to or believe what they (referring to the sales reps) have to say. But in this case haven't they been pretty much right on every account? I haven't been keeping score, but it seems like every instance has turned out to be true...
    This is starting to get old, and I myself think it may be time to let the Icon go. The software seems to run fine, but if VZW keeps finding something that they don't like then they will keep pulling the plug, or keep holding off. Lumia is already dead at VZW, they have no interest in WP, the last 2 WP will slip away quietly without much care as well...

    yes I am buying fireworks to set off on Friday in celebration of the imminent release of the OTA because there is no way a great and noble company like Verizon could let us down and not send out the update......right??
