    Let's get the word to Verizon we are tired of waiting for the Cyan release. Please help by signing the petition. This is only valid until Oct 31, 2014. I didn't want it to go too long; need to get the sig's to Verizon. Pass this on, please.

    Ha. I started the same thing for TMO last week. Hopefully, these companies will get the hint at some point in time.

    why not ask Microsoft to include lumia firmware in the developers preview program instead? 928 users are still waiting for an update to enable LTE band 4 that for some reason is being blocked, I think its been over a year now, id rather avoid contact with carriers in the first place jezz

    Due to the tech involved in Verizon and Sprint, this isn't possible. AT&T & T-Mobile you can get an unlocked phone.

    I can't offer any insight regarding firmware for DP. I'm using a 928 myself and yes the BT is what I'm most interested in. But, I also want everyone on Verizon to get the update, so I'm only targeting Verizon right now. If it is possible to change future updates and how it is delivered, great, let's worry about that bridge when we get there. Right now, I want to get us updated to the current update.

    I'll admit I don't understand the technical stuff, but seeing that Verizon's phone's are unlocked, your statement doesn't make sense to me.

    All phones will not work on verizon or sprint unless either carrier provides software keys for the phones. A true CDMA device (prior to LTE) doesn't even have a sim card. So yeah Verzion's LTE phones are unlocked to other carriers but no one can make a phone without verizon's permission that will work on verizon. I believe its some kind of certificate that can't be duplicated. That way its unique to every phone's firmware.

    It's my understanding all LTE-capable phones are "unlocked - all you need is a SIM that works on the carrier's network to use it.Data/SMS may not always be operable. . .

    I think we've got a better chance at getting cyan, and denim and everything else that comes after it, if we succeed

    LOL, I don't think it will change anything either. I think the only thing that would make a difference is moving off the network, but that isn't happening with my account. Verizon has the best coverage where I live and work.

    Re: 11B1P,

    Did you sign the petition? You didn't say. We know you think it is hopeless, but signing the petition does no harm and has more of a chance of doing some "good" than not signing.

    Coverage is what matters. Unfortunately I'm in the same boat as you are where Verizon covers this area better. Sprint and T-Mo just don't cut it around here and I'm not a fan of AT&T. Verizon just sucks less.

    What worries me is the apparent disinterest in WP by Verizon.
    No displays or inventory in some stores. Lack of interest by employees. If they aren't interested I wish they'd just say so and I could decide what I want to do.
    I went to an at&t store and the WP experience was much better. Plus inventory and phones in stock with the official 8.1.
    I hate to switch though. I have three wp's in the family with shared data. Seems like a lot of trouble to switch. But I might.
    As far as cyan is concerned that would be great but if they have no sense of urgency in these other areas it won't fix much for very long.

    AT&T coverage here is ****-poor compared to Vzw, so I won't switch. Not to mention my unlimited data, and unlimited data hotspot.

    I'm lucky. Until this year AT&T sucked where I live too. They just put a radio on the nearby water tower and my neighbors confirmed that did the trick. We'll see when I actually get service. I'm doing that today for my new 1520.3.
