    Is there a way to refuse the new update 98.72.165.en.us? The reminders have become very annoying. The last time I updated my Razr Maxx I dearly regretted it and do not wish to make that mistake again. If anyone knows how to refuse and forever stop the infernal reminders concerning this update please share!!

    Long press the notification. You'll get an App info button. Press that and you'll be in the Application manger for the app that's notifying you of the update. Clear cache. Clear data. Now you won't get bothered.

    I followed your instructions but have discovered that the update has somehow downloaded itself to my phone and is lying in wait to be installed. I think this happened the first time I got the message and pressed the "Learn More" link which took me to the Verizon website. I have checked my downloads folder and it is empty. I have gone through the files in my "manage apps" folder but not sure which one to delete. Any ideas?

    It's in the cache folder, on the 'root' of the phone. You need to be rooted to access it. Why do you not want to update? The update doesn't change anything visible, or functional.

    This is an update to the Firmware, not an app. On a stock, unrooted phone there is nothing you can do. You either accept the update and let it install, or pretty much forever be bugged/reminded to install it.

    The update itself is pretty minor, its not even a .1 OS update, just bug fixes, which probably don't even apply to you.

    If you aren't rooted, there's little reason to decline it. If you are rooted you will lose root but can re-root without difficulty.
