Confirmed: XOOM 4G LTE Upgrade Available in September, Emails to Customers Rolling Out Today (Updated) (Again With Email)

We just received word that Motorola XOOM 3G owners could will see an email from either Moto or Verizon today with details about their 4G LTE upgrade.  According to our source, the email will inform them that the upgrade will not happen until September (pictured below).

The LTE upgrade has passed through the FCC already, so we were under the impression that it would be soon.  Maybe Moto needs more time to coordinate the mail-in process? And remember, this was supposed to happen originally in May.  

Update:  Here is your confirmation. September is indeed when this is going down.

Update 2:  And the emails should be rolling out now to all XOOM owners…

Cheers Joe, mfg68, Mr. Alfonso, Andrew and everyone else for the email!

    I had an issue with the power switch on my Xoom.  I called Verizon to get it repaired and while on the phone, asked about the 4G upgrade.  They sent me to a Motorola call center where I explained that my tablet needed a repair and since it is September, could I send it in and get both the switch repaired and get the upgrade done concurrently?  She said yes but the upgrade is not available but would be in September.  I advised her that is is September 26 today so the upgrade would have to be available in the next four days, about the time that they would receive my device.  he answered that the upgrade would not be available until September.  Understanding that I was in a circular argument with a call taker reading a script, I gave up.  I guess the hungry attorneys will eventually realize that there are the makings of a class action lawsuit forming and will try to get in on the action.  While it would be easy to blame Verizon for selling me a device that was completely misrepresented, I feel that they were duped by Motorola who apparently have no intention of meeting their obligations.  Oh, one more thing, Verizon canceled my extended warranty and said it extends to all Xooms.  The agent advised me that it was because Motorola will not issue any type of extended warranty.

    I don’t even know if I’m going to send mine in, I just canceled the data plan on it since I’m guessing we’re not going to get LTE in my area for a little while (a city around 100,000 people) and since it was costing me $35 a month.

    Until we can root and have free tether on the D3, I’m saving money by paying for the mobile hotspot instead. I’ll probably cancel that though even before we get root!
