    Hmm...hope it's true but the fact that this rep said the HTC Trophy, a WP7 device, would be getting an Android update leads me to believe that she has no idea what she is talking about.

    She actually said operating system update....so not sure if she meant the Trophy is getting a WP7 update & we're getting ICS, she was confused/messed up or was just feeding me a line of BS.....LOL.

    I hope this is true! I actually haven't even received my Rezound yet. I was waiting for the Incredible 3/4g but couldn't pass up on this great deal for the Rezound. I figured with the ICS update it'd be a superior product over the INC 4G based off the "leaked" specs.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Rhyme is getting an update, and even I get the names screwed up.

    Nothing showing up on the Verizon update page yet.

    Believing anything a rep tells you frequently leads to disappointment.

    I've been running the leak and it's extremely polished.

    You will know when an update is coming when VZW updates the Rezound Support page PDF file reflecting the update. They release these typically a few days prior to releasing an OTA update. I know, for the better part of 3 years I have been screen scraping the VZW support pages, and the one thing I always notice is that when you see a new PDF on that page, give it 3 days. Until then, if someone says it is coming in the next day or 2, it isn't true.

    Very true. No update to the PDF out there yet, and today's the 12th with no ICS for my wife's Rezound. She's really liking the stock Gingerbread on there now, so she won't let me put the leak on it. She's far more patient than I am I guess.

    Sometimes it pays to be patient. I'm just a stock person and don't want the hassle. Plus, I'm not that lucky. I tell myself that the official OTA has been checked enough to be as clear of bugs and as trouble free as possible. I've been following most of the leak threads and some people do fine and some don't, but actually, the same can be said of most of the official OTA's that have been pushed to us.

    My Rezound is working so good now, I'm hoping the ICS upgrade doesn't break something.

    I'm running Clean Rom with the leak. It's great, except for battery life, which is abysmal. I'm hoping that when ICS is released officially for this device that they have tweaked the kernel so both cores aren't blazing at full strength the entire time the phone is on.

    This is the reason I will wait a few weeks to decide if I will update. The Rezound's battery has been great for me. I definitely don't want that ruined by the update.

    lol me too I gave up waiting. I put on the leaked ICS, then I unlocked my phone, and then I put on Nils ICS ROM. I rooted it and Im happy about it. It wasn't to bad. Pretty easy. Not as easy as my droid inc tho but still wasn't bad.

    I tried running the Nils Rom this weekend. The phone didn't recognize my SD card. That's the second time this has happened. Says it's not mounted. Is there a fix for this that I can't find?????

    I'm not sure. I'm using Nills ICS Sense 3.4. It requires you to relock your phone and put on the latest RUU. Then you gotta follow the unlock procedure put on the recovery. Then I did factory resets, wiped cache and davlik and installed the ROM. No issues here so far.

    Coming from an OG Droid and then a DX, the phone hackery on this device is significantly different than it was on those phones. I might be running old firmware on my phone after all, even though it's registering as the new firmware. I attempted a patch to the old firmware when running Clean Rom but I thought I didn't execute it correctly. Maybe I did after all. I have to look into this.

    Are you using stock battery and using 4GLTE often?
