Will I be forced to take ICS update?

Will I be forced to take the ICS upgrade?   I have heard that others TB phones have updated overnight without their consent,  Fortunately I have not gotten the update and don't want it, my phone works perfect as it is, best phone I've ever had.  I tried ICS on the Rezound and hated it.      Why would we be forced to ruin a perfectly good phone, If so I will be dropping Verizon.

I guess you could turn your phone off at night.

You are NOT forced to accept any update. You will get a pop up that tells you there is an update available and you can select to install it now, or tell it No you do Not want it now. If you do select No, it will continue to notify you that the update is available

And if you leave Verizon what phone will you get that doesn't have ICS or Jelly Bean on it? You can't take your Rezound to another carrier.

I already dumped the rezound, what a pos, might have been great with GB but with ICS it sucks.

I had a Rezound, it was a POS too. ICS may not be a bad thing on a phone that actually works right..(LOL)

My update automatically started Saturday morning without me giving any permission, but so far so good just can't access some of my freaky websites.

Pretty sure all new android phones that you get or want will have ICS installed.

Probably Jelly Bean (android 4.1+) more than ICS.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

There was no warning.  My thunderbolt upgraded automatically. My phone is now virtually useless. It is slower by at least a factor of three.  I am typing this on my Nexus tablet because using the phone now is just way too frustrating. I tap a button and wait five seconds for it to change color to show it was pressed. I have to slow my typing by a factor of five so the screen can keep up with my typing. Apps that were rock solid now just crash mysteriously.  And the programmers at Android did not help by switching the order of the OK and cancel buttons.  Since when did google hire programmers with the IQ of a dish rag? I fully expect to see an online Dvorak keyboard on the next upgrade with a note that Qwerty keyboards are no longer available because Dvorak keyboards are better. If I wrote crap software like this,  I would have been homeless a long time ago. Upgrading without asking for permission is inexcusable.

How would people have felt if Microsoft upgraded all WinXP users to Vista... Overnight... Without asking?   I'm just hoping I can get something installed that restores this phone to some semblance of usability...
