So just wondering I recently up graded to the Razzr Max, but still have my T-bolt. Curently use it around the house with WiFi, and let my oldest son use it. Plan to eventualy activate it for him once I know it's not going to be destroyed in less the 24 hours.(He is a Pre Teen ther hard on electronics:)

Anyway it serves as a backup incase somehting happens to my Max as well. This being said I want to keep it as up to date as posable so IF and when the Update rolls out (Im seriosly not holding my breath) for the T-bolt will I still be able to receve it OTA even thou it is not activated?? I know my OG Droid was able to do this and my wifes Droid 2 Global coudl as well but thouse wher Moto phones and Im not as familuer with HTC phones..

I'm pretty sure it has to be activated to receive any OTA updates. That being said, as soon as you do reactivate it, the OTA should be pushed to the phone.

i believe demmo is right. however, i thought that was the case with all phones, so i'm not sure how your old droids got updates pushed to them? in any case, you could activate the tbolt on your line, get the update, and then activate you maxx on your line.

Could be done manually if the update file was made available.

We have an actual official announcement from Verizon Wireless now (shocking I know!)

Now all we need is a time frame.

A time frame was definitely missing from that press release wasn't it?

Let the anticipation begin!

I have seen the use of "soon" in system update statements before. It doesn't hold water for me.

Soon can mean in a geological sense, as in several billion years.....

Uh yeah, guess they were a little off in their time frame.  It wasn't in March during the month of that post or in April.

"We will continue to update this list as additional details become available throughout the year."

     Don't hold your breath. Verizon must have 1 developer that works on updates for ALL of their Android phones.  The Thunderbolt won't see an ICS update till 2013. Well after Jelly Bean, or whatever Google names it, is released.  Remember when it got Gingerbread?  ICS was already released and was being seen on other devices before the 'Bolt saw GB.  Obviously HTC and Verizon have never heard of Extreme Programming.

Wake me up next year...
