RAZR, RAZR MAXX and HTC Rezound Receiving Ice Cream Sandwich Updates as Early as Next Week?

According to Best Buy systems that were updated this afternoon, Verizon is preparing to launch Ice Cream Sandwich updates for 3 of their top phones, the DROID RAZR, RAZR MAXX, and HTC Rezound. Both Moto and Verizon had caught flack for not giving specific enough time frames for updates to the RAZRs, but we speculated at that time that it was likely because they were going to try to release them as soon as possible. If this screenshot from BBY is correct, that assumption was also on point. The Rezound was in a similar boat – we knew it was getting it, but had no idea when. We may know now. 

How does April 4 for the RAZRs and April 6 for the Rezound, sound?

We checked out the usual spots for update info and came up empty. If these all do get pushed next week though, we are in for some fun.

    Apr 20 still no Ice Cream Sandwich. Might as well just wait for Jelly Bean at this rate.

    I got an OS update pushed to my DroidX and the phone turned into a paperweight for a day an a half until I figured out that the new OS was incompatible with the memory card and/or the card’s contents.  I removed the card and the phone again worked – I received notice of several missed calls and dozens of texts once I came back “online.” 

    A co-worker was away for training and started having issues, went to a local VZW store out west and they couldn’t help him except to sell him a new phone, but suggested to buy a new memory card because the old one will not likely work in the new phone, hmmmm.

    I reformatted my “old” memory card and re-installed it, phone still works.  However the update has caused some apps to not function properly, alarm clock to only sometimes make the waking sound that makes it an alarm clock, ring-tones and sounds downloaded from Zedge.net no longer work, and the battery life has decreased drastically – all in a matter of 2 days.Very frustrating.Funny how this all came about within a week of Verizon urging me to take advantage of my eligibilty to upgrade to a 4G phone with a discount.  Me paranoid? Nah.

  • The Incredible 2 needs ICS update already. and HTC Sense 3.0 or 4.0

    people who are fighting over which android phone is better really need to grow up. have we forgetten the whole reason for using android over crapple??? to have a choice between what device we want to use and how we want our phone to operate and work. one android phone may have newer specs and an updated os version than the other but in no way shape or form should it make that phone “superior” to any other android phone. its all personal preference
