LG Spectrum and Ice Cream Sandwich

Would someone from Verizon provide information as to when the LG Spectrum can expect to receive ICS? I remember before purchasing the device, the plan was sometime in Q2.

Also, is it possible for the Spectrum to have it's own "Space" like other similar phones from other manufacturers?

Thank you kindly.

I believe that LG Spectrum is scheduled to get ICS, but there was no time frame given.

As for a space for the phone on the community, it is usually the very popular devices that get their own space. What the method is for deciding that is up to the Community Managers.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Ann154, thanks for the response. I was sort of hoping to get someone from Verizon to respond to the question about ICS, and what had been communicated before was Q2. We know from LG, that the upgrade has been made available to Verizon.

I'm pretty patient, but there have also been rumors of a new model, and well, we'd hope Verizon would make good on bringing the unit to ICS before they introduce the successor product.

As a community leader, can't you petition the CMs for a "Space" for the device?

This is a peer to peer customer forum. The users don't know when an update is coming. Even the VZW employees that roam this community wouldn't know until the update has started pushing out.

Hmmm! Seems that I asked the very same question about a month ago, and, sadly, I'm still waiting for the ICS update for my Spectrum. Instead of LG saying it means "Life is Good" in should mean "Long in Getting (any upgrade)."

Seems that when it comes to major OS updates, many carriers drag their feet too long.

I read the other day, can't remember where, that Verizon sent ICS back to LG to work out some bugs.  Don't know how true that is but that's the scuttlebutt.  Wonder if we'll see it before Christmas???

Well had read originally that we'd have in in Q2. And on another site, they said Q3. No definitive information unfortunately.

The answer I'm about to give will stink but it's true: chances are the ICS for our Spectrums won't come out until either the Spectrum 2 releases or until another money-making venture that makes the device look obsolete comes onto the seen.  Android does full research when it comes to upgrades for OS on any device.  The fact that Verizon has not released the update is disheartening in the trust that Verizon is hoping its customers have for them.  But in working for the competition, which I despise, they do the same thing frequently.

I hope this isn't true. We were told the Spectrum was slated to get ICS in Q2. They have been updating plenty of other phones.

Recently I was told ICS is in testing... interesting since I thought it already underwent testing... and was leaked months ago, and the OEM had a relevant manual ready to go (unlike other OEMs). But, hmmm, it's almost September and no ICS. Very frustrating.

In addition, I feel we also deserve a "space" of our own. Are you listening Verizon to your user community? At least manufacturer specific landings so people can help one another. Geesh.
