when will Verizon be making the windows 8.1 update available for my lumia icon?

I purchased this phone because I wanted the windows 8.1 features. I was told Verizon was testing windows 8.1 and it would be available soon. That was months ago and I have not heard anything, when I have stopped into the Verizon store and asked they tell me they don't know anything about software availability. I am getting very frustrated, I moved to Verizon because I thought they were the best in the business but I am starting to question my assumptions now. Verizon, can you at least give me an idea of when this update will be available?

They won't answer because they don't care.

Yes, they can. Not a chance in hell that they will, though.

Check for uodates, mine updated to 8.1 from running the Preview for developers yesterday. I now have a Cortana icon on my home screen.

Who knows they might release it in time for Christmas! Or maybe they'll email you a picture of a nice lump of coal.

HA! Every other carrier has Lumia Cyan; Verizon WP customers get Lumia Coal.
