    Super Bowl, complaining that your team could've done better, etc.
    That will last about a day.

    Which begs a question: What is everyone going to do with the extra free time not spent checking in here and pushing that damn Update Phone button?
    Complain about why WP10/(insert firmware version here) hasn't been released by Verizon yet.

    I most likely will be buying a flagship WP after my current contract is up but I don't ever see myself buying a flagship WP ever again on Verizon

    I'm not going to let the miserable way VZ has treated the Icon and WP change how much I enjoy the WP platform
    If i only had the luxury of having other providers that provided comparable coverage for my needs.

    Denim has been rolling out to the 930 in both Europe and Asia for a couple weeks now.

    Software update for Lumia with Windows Phone 8 - Microsoft - Global

    Just because the 930 is getting it doesn't mean a whole for us Icon users.

    Ok, February is here. My bet is that Denim will be a no show once again, and March will come and go and still no up date. Then April..May..I think you see where I am going with this. No updates for the Icon...ever...

    I'm starting to think along the same lines. This cannot possibly be all on Verizon.

    Just started pushing out the Android update for the S5. They already updated the 822 and the 928.

    There is something wrong with this picture and I think we've been sold a bill of goods by VZW and MSFT.

    At this point, I don't care why it's been delayed (I did five months ago). I just want the update. We will never hear why as that would require a pinch of decency from Verizon and general concern for a subset of paying customers (albeit we are minuscule in number).

    You should care because if it's the phone, as I suspect we'll never get an update

    @Joe B ... the "BIGGER PROBLEM HERE" is Microsoft "just doesn't" apparently "believe or care" that ... "we ICON users represent some of their most LOYAL Windows Phone customers"!!! Like others, I have never seen ANY REPORTS of the number of Icon "owners" ... but, it "must be" in the 250,000 to 750,000 range. I have seen reports that the 920, 928, 1020, 930 etc. "ALL have pieces of the overall WP worldwide install" ... but, NO MENTION of the Lumia ICON!

    SO ... I am SICK AND TIRED of reading about NEW "low end" phones in India, and Brazil, and the UK, and Italy ... etc. ... but, @ Joe B ... IF YOU LOSE THE US market - and VERIZON IS #1 here in the US - then ...

    Windows Phone = TOAST !!!

    Latest reports - I have read is that "in 2014" - 40 million Windows Phones ... 174 million iPhones ... and 1 FRIGGING "BILLION" Android Phones!!!

    @Joe B ... WE, the US Market, CAN HELP Microsoft "beat Apple" ... but, NOT if you keep LYING TO us Verizon ICON "loyalists"!

    OH YES ... "latest reports" are that Windows Phone is at 3% market share = WOW, that is sure TERRIBLE!

    And what can anyone do about that but speculate as you are doing. The longer this is delayed, the more of us get frustrated and switch/upgrade phones and this "problem" is magically resolved. I won't waste any time being concerned that this phone is inherently flawed. I do have an issue with being ignored after paying for a product I was sold with false promises.

    Verizon abandoned the Icon and therefore those who bought them. Any table scraps they throw now are too little too late.

    Guys you gotta chill. It's a phone, like the features aren't THAT important. I'm pretty sure they're not gonna not release it. Just be patient. Like I'm checking for updates every day but I'm also not raging over something that'll probably happen in a matter of weeks....

    since the phone hasn't been updated since 05/2014 by VZ I think people have the right to rage just a little bit

    The right sure, but I think the degree is a little extravagant. I'm in the same position, but I still think I have a great phone.

    In April ADuplex said that the Icon was at number 18 on the list. In the May report the Icon was listed at number 30.
