Htc getting the Verizon short stick

Ok first off as for jelly bean on rezound , it's not gonna happen . Look at the PR mess Verizon has head with the rezound . Dirt off deffinetly the best phone on Verizon's network and it has gotten zero push compared to the crappy Motorola garbage. Second we were promised ICS almost 5 months ago THAT never happen . HtC has stated that the rom has been ready now for several weeks but verizon isn't doing squat until Motorola hardware is done . So I expect to be dragged along till end of July knowing the way Verizon is . Finally the rezound is just about discontinued at this point . It's life cycle ends in July . We don't even have ICS yet let alone Verizon caring enough to even bother trying to lease us when that launches . Next on my rant is Verizon passing up the HTC one series . Verizon has its heads so far up Motorola rear that they actually passed up THE premiere phone line from HTC ........ Come on really but they keep putting out more and more Motorola garbage . I aware it seems every week there's another crappy razor ish phone coming out . HTC has recently said that the new buisness model is working on end android devices no more of this cheap low end garbage . They want to focus on high quality , and I think the one series shows that . And yet again as a Verizon customer we get the shaft . Sorry to say but other carriers are looking more and more acceptable

I'm not excusing it, but this is nothing new. Been lime this for 3 years (at least). When I was new to android I had no idea the Eris existed. I actually thoutght the original Motorola Droid was the only android they had.....LOL. I was about to get one when, by complete chance, I saw something about the incredible coming out so I waited and got it. They've always pushed Motorola. Shame too. I really wanted the one series. I'm now considering the s3 and I've never cared for Samsung. With the release of the Inc 4g, I just don't see another HTC coming to Verizon until at least the holidays.

Look at the PR mess Verizon has head had with the rezound I haven't seen very much news about this phone at all, really. Dirt First off deffinetly definitely the best phone on Verizon's network and it has gotten zero push compared to the crappy Motorola garbage This part I agree with. Second we were promised ICS almost 5 months ago no, we were not.  We were actually NEVER promised ICS, even if it was written on a poster.  Oh, yeah, what WAS written on that poster was that it will receive an upgrade in early 2012.  That is a very generic time frame and, unless you have something signed with your contract, it's not a promise.  THAT never happened . HtC has stated that the rom has been ready now for several weeks No, they haven't but verizon isn't doing squat until Motorola hardware firmware is done that actually wouldn't surprise me, but there is nothing saying they can't do that. So I expect to be dragged along till end of July knowing the way Verizon is . Finally the rezound is just about discontinued at this point . It's life cycle ends in July Don't know where you got THAT one from, left field, maybe?. We don't even have ICS yet let alone Verizon caring enough to even bother trying to please us when that launches . Next on my rant is Verizon passing up the HTC one series That was a mistake, but I just signed a contract, so it doesn't bother me too much. Verizon has its heads so far up Motorola rear that they actually passed up THE premiere phone line from HTC probably........ Come on really but they keep putting out more and more Motorola garbage I wouldn't exactly call them garbage, their decent phones, just not for me. I aware it seems huh? every week there's another crappy razor ish phone coming out There's only three that would fit this description, with the D4 filling a niche by having a slide out keyboard. HTC has recently said that the new buisness model is working on end android devices no more of this cheap low end garbage . They want to focus on high quality , and I think the one series shows that . And yet again as a Verizon customer we get the shaft . Sorry to say but other carriers are looking more and more acceptable and you can always go to those other carriers.

Good Morning Demmo86rt , ok that actually made me laugh reading through you edit . but a couple of comments inregards to your editing . FIRST yes they did promise ICS any Verizon i went into in November that was their BIG push " its gonna be the first android phone with ICS " so in the context of you stating that it was advertised as EARLY 2012 like here " http://www.unwiredview.com/2011/11/07/htc-rezound-amaze-4g-sensation-and-others-confirmed-to-get-and..." yes EARLY to me means some time in the first quarter...............and whats today's date ?? 06-24-2012 hmmm 6 days away from third quarter now ............. that doesn't sound like early to me does it ???? now on the road map scene where you said i got it from left field .............. Verizon has a typical life span of literally KILLING a device and discontinuing it anywhere within 6-9 months before they start discontinuing and pushing it out the door. within a year and its a goner ( even though they try to make you sign  2 year contract and god forbid you have insurance and need to use it.Then you can only get 3-5 refurbished devices in hopes that you get one that works cause they don't HAVE new units anymore) ........... http://www.technobuffalo.com/mobile-devices/phones/leaked-verizon-roadmap-suggests-droid-4-will-sell... .........from here you will see the 5/10/2012 time frame date as their last marker for the 199.99 price tag then it'll be 149.99 for a month and i guarantee with in another 2-3 months its gonna be free and refurbished will be all that's left. .......this link shows the  i mean for Christs sake the NEXUS is being set up for its discontinued trench run as we speak starting at best buy under Verizon http://androidstoress.blogspot.com/2012/06/galaxy-nexus-drops-to-149-at-verizon.html ............ really !?!?!?! and that was THE one Verizon had pumped if im not mistaken aren't they STILL waiting for the updated version of ics too ?? NOW HTC has stated a few times in and even had the page update on their site for version 3.14.605.70 710RD stating that its been ready for several weeks.MY argument is that Verizon continues to look for NEW ways to OVERCHARGE the hell out of us , drag their feet on updates and upgrades figuring " well there's a phone for another 299.00 if you want the same OS " that should have been updated onto my phone already for free.  i have had Verizon since the old school FIRST Motorola Timeport phones. I have had business phones accounts with them and personal phones with them . i have had custom roms on their android phones and used pretty much almost all the android phones they carry . My Opinion is that VERIZON really getting worse year over year . they shouldn't open their mouth about updates and stuff they have NO IDEA about (false advertising) , if they pushing 2 year contracts NEW PHONES should be available for that time frame and UPDATES should be prompt and quick, the amount of money carriers make they should NOT be charging 29.00 upgrade FEE and their family share data plan im not even getting started on that .
