Very frustrated that Verizon has not release Windows 8.1 for the Lumia Icon. When will it be released? Early 2015 is not an acceptable answer.

As I'm certain many others who bought this phone are, I am increasingly irritated that Verizon has not released the Windows 8.1 update.


When will it be release?  Early 2015 is not an acceptable answer.

Completely agree, but I doubt very seriously if Verizon will provide a date, if any.  Verizon doesn't care about Windows Phone users.  That is something that is quite OBVIOUS!  I'm trying to give Verizon the benefit of the doubt because I like my Icon, but if AT&T receives the Denim update for the 1520 before Verizon releases if for the Icon, I'm dumping Verizon for good!  Suggest you, and all other Windows Phone users do the same!

That is unfortunate.  Since we have a family plan for our service, dumping Verizon is not an option.  I am considering changing to the HTC 1 (M8), but don't want to make the investment if indeed the Lumia will be updated soon.

"Early 2015" is the best answer you are going to get. I suggest that it is less stressful to accept what is rather than reject it. Taking the stance of "not acceptable" for something like this does nothing but disturb your peace of mind. Smiley Happy

Really though, to me it is very good news in the sense that we now know we WILL eventually be getting 8.1, Cyan, and Denim. Verizon has made no official statement at all about this. Now we have Joe Belfiore specifically telling us MS is working with Verizon to get the update out and it will come for the ICON. Not as informative as we would like, but much better than what we had before!

I don't see how this is any different than when Verizon stated we would be getting Cyan "soon" just after the phone was released nearly a year ago...

Hoping Verizon and Microsoft have this done before the 21st.

Sorry penterax, but I can't agree with you.  Good news would be "the update has been approved and released by Verizon and you can start downloading it now."  We have been duped by Microsoft and Verizon already when they stated we would be receiving Cyan update "soon."  And in case you haven't noticed, all Icon users are STILL on Lumia Black!

I won't "celebrate" an "Early 2015" releast announcement until I actually see it downloading onto my phone and given the history of the updates for this phone, I think I speak for a LOT of Verizon customers when I say, we are well within our rights to be SKEPTICAL!

Agreed. Verizon and Microsoft have delivered nothing but empty promises.

I will be shocked if we ever see an update for this phone.

If we don't see an update for this phone, it will be Verizon's loss of my account.  If AT&T gets Denim update for the 1520 before Verizon releases it for the Icon, then bye-bye VZW!

Verizon's non-response is unprofessional -- not what you'd expect from one of the 20 largest firms in the U.S.  Verizon should not have continued to sell the Icon if they were not prepared to support it.
