    So i get a text from Verizon stating that my recent tech issues (4g issues we all have been experiencing.) will be resolved from a Software update coming at the end of October.
    Sounds promising...?

    that would be awesome. since screwing around with my phone and tweaking it a little I am starting to enjoy it more and more. About time, since I bought it the day it came out I regretted it because of the issues it has. That is my last sta-fu with the phone. get that fixed and I will be a happy camper!

    It seems reasonable to me, based on Motorola's stated intentions and all of the leaks. That said, it's probably best to assume that it's coming on October 31, so at best Verizon can under-promise and over-deliver for once with this phone.

    Well I checked my magic 8 ball, and got a second opinion with the Ouija board, and we all think Oct 19.

    I'm running .232, and it's been running better. It's still a POS: headphone buzzing, phone crashes occasionally, and some glitches are still present. But I have not had any big issues w/LTE etc. The rare LTE issues I'm having seem to be caused by the network, not the phone.

    That's way more scientific then what Motofail uses. You should make it into an app and sell it to them.

    If were on 232 do we still get the upgrade memo?

    Not sure.... I'm stock with root, and I didn't get a memo... maybe OP has history with complaining to Verizon enough to get on "The List". :D

    I'm on android version 2.3.4 and system version 5.9.905.XT875
    I'm rooted. will I still get the upgrade notification and will I be able to upgrade without un-rooting?
    Also does anyone know how I can fix my GPS location problem? When I use navigation it can take 5 minutes or more for it to fix on the area.

    Notice how all the other phones/tablets are getting very timely updates yet the Bionic is not???

    This made me lulz greatly... I wish this was the case! Most other phones and tablets from this same time period are in the same boat... "The update is coming soon" is kinda the theme, irregardless of manufacturer.

    You need to be on 905 with all stock files in place to pass the system checks that the OTA will go through. If you're on 232 you need to go back to 905 if you want the OTA. If you're on 905 but rooted, rooting alone usually won't block the update. If you rooted and moved around or deleted some system files, the update will notice that and probably not work.

    Also, I haven't checked thoroughly, but I don't see any Android news sites mentioning this text/announcement that OP got....

    Also... make sure if anything is frozen, thaw it out to get the OTA...

    For accuracy ... both of these should be prefeced with ...

    "Since the OTA has not been released yet ... none knows for sure. Based on past OTAs it seems highly likely that ..."

    The Razr's haven't. In fact, the ICS bugs there that seem to be the cause of our ICS delay have not been fixed yet.

    Droid RAZR & Droid RAZR MAXX ICS Bug Fix Release Date Still Not Clear
