    Based on VZW's history with updates, I wasn't expecting it until at least April anyway.

    I just read this today on "The Droid Guy".
    "The HTC One is not the only device to have certification coming soon. HTC has also given their Android 4.4 KitKat update to Verizon to be certified for the Droid DNA."

    You can check it out at:
    http://m.thedroidguy.com/?url=http:...-4-kitkat-updates-recieve-certification/#2792

    Supposedly the HTC One will get it in about 1 week. No date for us yet. I wouldn't hold my breath. :thinking:

    I like that HTC did that. Helps to see it laid out like that. It is in VZW hands now....

    Since we're on the subject in this thread, what are the major differences between HTC Sense 5.0 and 5.5?

    I'm feeling that same let down of a missed deadline. . Then we won't hear anything. . Then we won't get anything. . I don't know if it is HTC or Verizon. At this point I really don't care. . An upgrade would have been nice. At least we got 4.2.2

    Seeing as how we are still at the integration phase nobody is to blame but HTC.

    This will be my last HTC device.

    Yea they are taking their time. But I also saw that testing has started for Android 4.4.3 so wondering if that is why things are going so slow with Kit Kat updates.

    Not even a rumor right now that I can find. Wonder if they are holding off for 4.4.3? I would not mind if they would say something all this hush though is annoying.

    Just hope it fixes some of the issues or HTC will go bye bye for Christmas. Maybe go back to LG folks seem to be liking those.
