After using jelly bean today, I would rather wait for it and skip ice cream sandwich.

Jellybean as an official release is unlikely, but I'm sure it will be ported once ICS is dropped since they can use the same drivets. Yes, ICS will be released for this phone. I give it untill the end of July before Verizon starts pushing it.

I don't see why JB would be out of the question. But I will be very happy when ICS does come out. My Fascinate with AOKP runs circles around my Spectrum.

No jelly bean, because of the number of upgrades since the phone came out, they already are doing ice cream sandwich for a phone not really making any more money for them, it should drop to a free phone with contact in July or August. Why would they spend money on it to develop jb?

Online retailers were/are seeking the spectrum for $0.01 & $19.99 & $29.99 & $49.99 that I have seen, but even these months after it was released, Verizon put it on buy one get one 2 months after it came out... lots of signs they are trying to unload the stock for this phone to get rid of them.

January - March release phone are only to get people to resign contracts and to get people jumping ship from other carriers. The main event phones are June-early November launch.

Why else would they launch a phone like the spectrum with fantastic specifications, but mostly the same old hardware that has been around for almost 2 years, 2-3 months before announcing new devices running the next generation of chipsets? (Specifically the S4 Cpu)

we are not alone, the HTC Rezound still has no ICS. Of course they do having ICS ROMS but still the fact is that people were told back on thanksgiving that the rezound would have ICS within a couple of weeks!!!

I was in a VZ store the other day and it was the main advertised phone... probably because it's price cut to $99.

And as for the 'it's not selling so it's not getting an upgrade', I'm sorry, but that's bullshit. The Razr has copious amounts of advertising and they didn't get their updates pushed until yesterday: Motorola, Verizon Finally Release ICS Update for Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX*-*Eastern Morning Herald Even after Motorola and Verizon had moved away from the Droid 2 and Global, onto the Droid 3 (which was a flop of a phone), they still pushed updates to the older Droids. Updates are based on security and ability to get a manufacturer-themed version within a reasonable period of time. Of course, they're not going to push 4.0 to a phone like the Droid 2 that can barely run CM7 (CM9 was a slug on it).

The Spectrum has no major advertising and isn't supported by Google, but it came in with 2.3 at a time when it really should have had 4.0 installed and both VZ and the manufacturer know it. We may not get 4.1, because the changes are mostly cosmetic and not security-based, but who knows... LG doesn't exactly have a lot of phones to worry about, so maybe they have the resources to dev a 4.1.

Not trying to pick a fight here, I just think we are only getting one update, 4.0 or 4.1 not both. I'll be happy with either and I'm not expecting another after it, not from LG or Verizon.

From what I've read on this site and others, it is normally the carrier that vetos the upgrades.

There must be a reason why the phone shipped with 2.3, how many Verizon phones sell in the store with ICS right now? (6 months after the spectrum launched)

Definitely and I apologize if my response was a bit gruff. I really think LG should have launched this phone with ICS on it, but for whatever reason (probably kernel or HAL issues) they went with GB since they had it on all their other phones already. Seriously, it feels like they took the GB build they had for the Nitro, changed some libs and then dumped it on our device... it doesn't feel like it's been properly tuned and tested for our device.

I also think the carrier influence with LG phones isn't as important, since all you need to do is get the LG tool and you can flash the stock rom FROM LG, bypassing Verizon altogether; you can't do that with Motorola... it takes an act of Congress to get the damn SBF files for deving.

So to me, this was all LG's decision. That said, they had 6 months. I expect their version of ICS to be FLAWLESS and not the glitched-out, bear of an OS that their GB version is. If it's not and if we have the same issues as now, I'm probably going to dump this phone and go back to Motorola. I can appreciate the sometimes buggy nature of Android phones (kinda like a PC), but the issues we've had are ridiculous.

i feel that VZW and LG are obligated to release ICS at this point. My only issue now is that it may not be as polished as it should be and may be just as buggy as our version of GB

heard Verizon say that they have the update in their servers...take that with a grain of salt, but good to know it's at least still being worked on. Hopefully it'll be out soon. Should do wonders for this phone

It does, it's ridiculously fast, and smooth, messed with it for about five minutes and was in love, if I could return back to stock w/ no problem I would just to get on it.

I hope not. Like I said in another thread, our os feels like they took the os for Nitro and did some slight mods rather than build us a unique, polished rom. Given they've had a 6 months, they *should* have a polished version of ics.

lol true. If that were the case, the Moto devs wouldn't still be putting out roms for the DX, DX2, D2 and D2G; those phones were outdated by the Razr (and arguably, the Bionic).

HOWEVER... given those phones had huge dev support from the start, it's not likely for the devs to stop working on them simply because there's a new Moto phone out. The Spectrum only has stock-mod roms (which I'm thankful for, please don't misunderstand me here) and getting anything else to boot isn't working, so you can see how some might think devs won't bother with the Spec anymore (with no confirmed ICS), now that the 930 is coming out with ICS.

The concern is certainly warranted.

As I just got mine yesterday and got it all nice and rooted and loaded with BO, knowing my luck it will probably drop tomorrow.

EOL status is a little shocking, but makes sense considering I was able to get this phone for just $49. Looking forward to ICS but will not load it if that LG interface is included.

ya ics isn't confirmed but for all intensive purposes it's coming. hopefully once we get that the devs will be able to do more work and then life it's good. I just hope the ics update fixes the reboot probs as I've had one each of the past 2 days.

I'm trying to stay positive too, but we may still encounter issues like now where even a bin kang can't boot. That seems like something the devs should try to figure out first... because bin kangs on similar hardware are supposed to at least boot and they're not for us.

ICS on the Spectrum is smooth as butter, should be out soon, normally when it's tested, it's out 3-4 weeks later, and it's been being tested for about 2 weeks.

My wife worked for VZ and I've interviewed for managing one of their centers before... they don't have a tech support call center (if that's the position he has); tech support is a store position. Their call centers are sales and customer service. FWIW.....
