We're just as excited for the software upgrade you're waiting for. At this time, there is no official release date, which is why we're unable to provide you with a date. We want you to have only correct information and once it's available, you will receive it by registering for alerts.

Thank you for the response. It has no information, though. I understand that you have no responsibility to officially release the updates. However, the customers should be respected and informed about the current status, at least.
Most of "VZW Support" answers are pathetic, like
"Software updates are exciting! We have no info on the X.X update. You can check here http://vz.to/P8lzN8"

Thanks again, and have a nice day!
Not that I'm giving VZW a free pass on being late to update phones, The issue is the Manufacture/carrier will not give a release date, Because if they give a date and they don't make it for any reason people will be calling for everyone to be fired and how horrible they are. Unfortunately for me i'm Stuck on VZW since I travel up north a lot and they are the only ones that work there. I wish I could jump to another carrier but it just isn't feasible for me.
Yes, I downloaded it earlier today. It was running a little snappier than on JB. So it seemed anyway to me. I'm giving it a good recharge now, powered down, to check battery life/drain later or tomorrow.
All in all, it's good to get the update finally. And it's a week ahead of what they had said. So it's even better not having to wait any longer, since it's been a nice long wait already.
