This won't "force" the OTA update to your phone. VZW is targeting phones based on some unknown (geographic location (doubt it), serial # batches, IMEI number batches, etc). If your phone isn't in "the list" yet, IT WILL NOT see the update.

Same thing is done with Dish Network and their s/w updates. People ask over and over how to "force" the s/w download. You can't.
