DROID RAZR ICS Update Likely Not Arriving Today, Folks

Last week, CNET reported that the DROID RAZR would receive Ice Cream Sandwich on June 12. Clearly that is not happening. In a tweet from VZW’s support Twitter page, they mention that a date has not been given for the update, which leaves us with basically no concrete idea as to when we can expect it besides the previous “before the end of Q2” report. Like most other updates from Moto and VZW, we can expect Moto Feedback Network users to receive emails about a possible soak test before the update is officially ready, so until we see those, we’ll have to remain patient.

To keep up with ICS updates, be sure to bookmark our official list of dates.

At that time we will remove your Verizon Wireless Mobile IM app because it is not supported on Android 4.0. Please download a new instant messaging app to use IM on your phone. T”hank you for using Mobile IM!

    Is anyone else getting sick of this bull shit? Stop saying fake dates stop stringing us along. As much as i hate to admit it, looks like next upgrade will be iPhone. A platform that actually can push an update.

  • BigMac

    I do notice that if I try to manually check for an update, I get an error message saying that “Check for update is not available at this time. Please try again later.”

    thats right…. this is bullshit we should have ics already but verizon is stalling

  • Jake

    The update probably wont happen until after the Share Everything plans go live due to the fact that Hotspot is not a separate charge anymore. That at least makes sense to me that they would update the phone with a new Hotspot app to allow you to use it for free if you’re on the new plans.

    i just talked to a verizon rep and they told me that google WILL be pushing ICS today. Google is releasing the OTA in seperate “batch” files and is based on the purchase date of your droid razr. So if u bought your phone on the release date of the phone, then u will get the OTA first, if u waited until now, u will obviously get it last. Verizon can’t release dates yet because of the lack of intel from google to Motorola (not knowing which batch “your” phone is in), so they are on the safe side not “knowing” when the release date is.

    • DavidH

      Complete BS. Not only did what you say is happening not happen, but Google doesn’t do direct updating.

  • equestriancolt

    Does this surprise anyone at all? The update was supposed to happen last month and the month before. The question is why do they keep postponing? Verizon is looking for a new way to make money off of it. Rip off the people some more. Only in the land of America can companies ass rape everyone. The U.S motto should be: Welcome to America Bend Over and Open Your Wallet.

      Yes, having quality service that you can afford for your smartphone and not getting an update CNET said you’d get instead of worrying about starvation or murder on a daily basis is the equivalent of assrape. I’m so with you on that that I’ll be joining you on your emigration to Iran.

    Last Moto phone I will ever own,

      I hear you man. It’s total BS that Moto and VZW can’t figure out how to meet the upgrade dates that CNET made up. I’m done with both of them, too, because they should follow every rumor CNET reports.

  • Dale C

    Yaaaay another rumored date has come and gone with no ICS on my Razr… Why do I even bother with the rumors anymore…
