    the problem with your statement is that Joe Belfiore corporate VP at MS has publically stated we will be getting Denim and he is putting his reputation on the line with public statements about the Icon because otherwise we would get zero info from Verizon, if we were talking about some random blogger or some other unverified rumor stating that we would be getting Denim your guess would hold more weight imho
    Joe B. is on a "very successful FAST TRACK" at Microsoft and there is NO WAY that he will be proven wrong ... IMHO! Joe Belfiore is already a Corporate VP, works directly for Terry Myerson who is an Executive VP + Joe "HAS" overall responsibility for WINDOWS 10 and Windows Phone 10 !!

    If he said recently "what I meant was Feb 2015, probably NOT March" ... I sure wish that someone would "estimate" HOW MANY Verizon ICONS are in the market to date?

    Ah...the George Costanza method.

    I like it.
    I've started applying that method in my life as well. It actually works pretty well. :)

    I think he found it in Revelation somewhere.
    That explains Joe B's latest tweet: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give the Denim update freely to anyone who thirsts. But the cowardly iOS and Android users will burn in the lake of fire!"

    Ok, I did not want to tip my hand on this one, but I'll risk it for the sake of clarification of why I have been posting what I have on this thread. I am always wrong about things like this. So, if I come out with firm conviction and I believe that I am right, then I'll be proven wrong when the update comes out. So, you see it is a kind of reverse logical psychology on Verizon here.

    However, after saying all that, and the fact that Joe B has stated publically that Verizon and Microsoft are working together to get the update done in "early 2015" who knows how truly motivated Verizon is about doing the update and are they worried about Joe's reputation? I don't think so. I also know I attribute Verizon as having "feelings" like a person. I can see that point. Lets look at it at another way. As a large company, do I worry about a small group of customers (Windows Phone Users, all 12 of them) or do I pay attention to the vast majority of my customers and make sure they are taken care of first and foremost (I-Phone and Android all 25 bazillion of them). It is easy to see who you'd want happy and who would maybe not really care to much about.

    Time will tell, but I am still betting on a no show for any updates in February, again, just my gut feeling based on what has happened thus far. But this is a forum, you don't need to logical!
    So you post multiple doomsday posts on a "gut feeling."

    Then post this with your thinking/logic that backs up your speculation/conclusion. Which, by the way, i find perfectly plausible. I don't think it's going to happen that way, but it's possible.

    Then you say "Just my gut feeling. This is a forum, you don't need to be logical!"

    What did I even just read? If you're going to post speculation on a gut feeling, state as much and keep it short.

    If you're going to speculate based on research, history, and logic, then by all means - post away! But don't do both. It's tom foolery.

    Hope ya'll get your update. Seriously tho with Verizon's track record and how many Verizon employees have said this is it, I'd be inclined to use my Missouri heritage and pull a " show me". Proof is on the pudding as they say.

    What he said was "less likely March." Hardly a convincing statement.

    As for the number, I had one VZW call from the executive offices blurt out something about 300,000 but don't take that as gospel.

    The point I was making on this, and I can see that it was not as clear as it could be, is that I really do want the updates to come out this month and hopefully they will. I am hoping that I am wrong that they will never ever come out.

    if Joe B hadn't made any mention of Denim and we had just continued to get the usual wall of silence from Verizon I would agree that we would not get any update and VZ would have abandoned the Icon months ago if it was their choice

    even with Joe B's tweets saying that Denim is coming I am still not 100% positive we will get the update till I actually see the "update available" message on my phone because I have absolutely no confidence in Verizon to come through for us Icon users after months of disapointment

    AN ABYSMAL number like 300,000 Icons "would actually be logical" ... anybody else have something they read?

    THIS "could be the answer" that known of us were aware of = CRAP!

    Well, I keep posting on this thread that Verizon won't push the updates to the ICON. Just won't happen ever. Not this month, not next not ever. Now, why do I say this? It is just a gut feeling that I have. After all this time, I just don't see why Verizon will bother. We all know they hate Windows Phone, and probably not a fan of Microsoft either. We can probably forget about a Flagship Windows 10 phone on Verizon as well.

    Some guy on a Verizon forum is claiming that he talked to a supervisor who told him Denim arrives tomorrow. Not so sure I believe that, but the timing would be great since I have tomorrow off work.

    I think he's right, and I'll tell you why.

    Everything fits! Seriously, denim arrived for the 822 and 928 on a Friday. Which wouldn't really mean anything, if it weren't for the fact that several people now have heard it's coming tomorrow, Friday, from Verizon. Mix in JB's comments about early 2015 (Sorry guys, but February is still fairly early in the year), and other reports of February. I'm very hopeful for tomorrow, and I'd be willing to bet on it. Not too much, mind you, but some😁.
