The story is on WindowsPhoneCentral.
"MS/Verizon are working on some bug fixes-- VZW taking the quality seriously. We aren't sure how long it will take, but work is underway."

rednibkram supposedly has insider information he doesn't want to share with anyone. Maybe you can private message him and he'll tell you what he knows.
