    For those of you who would like to avoid the familiar feeling of crushing disappointment, please review the brief history below.

    This 75 page thread dating back to July of 2014: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...cyan-icon.html

    Or you could simply review this 72 page thread that we're currently posting in, which dates back to October 2014: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...cyan-icon.html

    There have been many false alarms and speculative dates that have fallen through the cracks. I'm not saying that we definitely won't get the update tomorrow. I'm just saying... brace for impact.

    Come on Verizon!

    PS - If we do get it tomorrow, it'll be when Verizon releases it. Not exactly at midnight or anything like that. That's not really how it works.

    I won't be disappointed. It's one of those things where it will be cool to have if it arrives, but even without Denim, the Icon is the best phone I've had to date and is still better than many phones on the market right now.

    When it comes to hardware, I totally agree. But when it comes to software/firmware - the stuff that really allows us to capitalize on the solid hardware - we're missing out tremendously. And we have been since the get-go.

    Maybe to most of you guys it seems like that, but for the average phone user like myself, it doesn't make a difference.

    The average phone user uses android, iPhone, or a low-mid end lumia. You have to be thinking about the market share here. People purchased the Icon as a high end device. In 2015, WP8 software on Black firmware is not high end.

    I tweeted VZWSupport and Joe B.. Verizon tweeted back that there is no release date, yet, which I figured. I just thought I'd mention what someone else posted on the Verizon forums, tho. I can wait. Would love to have Denim before Windows 10 Preview, of course.

    High end? The Icon is a high end phone and even more so with Denim. It may not be a high sales volume phone, but it's definitely high end.

    Ah, so only people who buy higher end Lumias are not average phone users? I see where this conversation is going, we should just stop here.

    It should be noted that this hasn't been in the case in the past with Windows Phones on Verizon.

    The hardware is certainly high end, though one could argue that it's on the lower end of the high end spectrum right now. But WP8/Black is antiquated. I say that as an avid Windows phone fan who has been using WP7 since day one. WP8.1/Cyan (or Denim) is necessary to continue to call the Icon high end.

    Just my two cents. But I think most here would agree with me.

    I agree that 8.1 is needed. I just need a couple features that Cyan would have brought, but the Denim firmware won't change my experience all that much. I do see the need for Denim, to consider the ICON as a "High End".

    If you think that on this day the 6th of February your going to get the Denim update based on hear say postings. Think again! Verizon will make a announcement prior to the release. until such time there is no update coming today.

    Umm... Didn't they announce denim for the 928 and 822 two hours before the release?

    Just as a friendly reminder, there will not be any kind of update from Verizon until the pdf's on this page get updated. Until then, we are SOL.

    Since when did this get biblical? Calm down everyone. No need to get your denim undies in a bunch. We've had plenty of instances when people claim the update is active when it's false. No need for trolls.

    I have seen the light! only "god" knows when we will receive the update, but then again he has to ask Verizon for permission. lol
