Title says it all.
Verizon, where is our 4.3 update? I want a real answer, not "we don't have any information on updates"....not "we rely on getting updates from the manufacturer"..... not "visit blahblahblah.verizon.updates.pressreleases.nonsense for the latest news".
I want a real answer.
Verizon gets HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS A MONTH FROM ME. 3 WIRELESS LINES, FIOS TV, PHONE, ETC. All I am asking for is an actual answer as to the status of this update. It is not unreasonable.
Google released the 4.3 update on July 24th. Today is November 26th. That's four ******* months! This is a Nexus device, so Google produces all the updates. There is NO waiting on Samsung. The update was ready on July 24th. That means Verizon had it on July 24th.
There was a minor update (JWR66Y) released on August 21st to fix some bugs....did Verizon get this? Are they working on this update?
Hell, Sprint released their 4.3 Update to their version of the Galaxy Nexus on October 31st. That's nearly a month ago.
VERIZON - WHERE IS OUR 4.3 UPDATE FOR THE GALAXY NEXUS???????????????????????
NO MORE EXCUSES. NO MORE NON-ANSWERS.
WE DESERVE TO KNOW, NOW!!!!
Unfortunately, you won't hear from a Verizon rep regarding this post because they only reply to posts marked as a question, which this isn't.
I have to agree that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus does deserve and needs the android 4.3 update. When and if the phone gets it is unknown.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
This situation is absolutely pathetic. My two Nexus devices are now two versions apart.
YOU MISSED AN ENTIRE VERSION, VERIZON!!!
In future contracts, Google needs to include financial penalties for companies that fail to provide updates for supported Nexus devices. Hurt them where it counts. As soon as I'm done travelling, I plan to kick Verizon to the curb.
I saw this coming before this phone was released. I even posted about it.
For those that said "Google said it will be treated the same."
I told you so...
It was treated the same from the beginning. It had software not from Google on it, apps were missing, internal capacity was exclusive to the Verizon model, and it was branded something that no other Nexus had been done before or after.
I bought both versions as soon as I saw the branding. Ended up trading the Verizon one for a iPhone 4S.
Oh can I say I told you so one more time? 😛
