***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

The update on my Turbo was NOT a disaster.  Some of the changes take getting used to but no worse than getting anew phone and relearning where everything is ...  A system cache clear did help with a couple of minor issues I was having.  I still love the Turbo, it's one of the better phones I've had over the years!!

When it is released, it is released in phases.  You can manually check for updates from Phone settings or try the Vzw Software Update Assistant to try to get it before it is auto-OTA-pushed.

Paraphrasing an old GI cliche:

"What's the difference between a fairy tale and a Verizon promise?"

"One begins, Once upon a time.., and the other, This ain't no b#!!$%&(. "

Just got the update.  It is a disaster.  Highly recommend that you do not update. Battery life dramatically compromised.  Speed on basic functions (e.g. contacts reduced). Basic controls (e.g. unlocking screen, turning off phone ringer) changed from one step to two.   I have two phones.  After installing the update on one, I am absolutely NOT going to install it on the other.
