Verizon Galaxy Nexus Update: The Wait Continues

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus update is apparently rolling out right now. Evidently, the software supposedly starting rolling out yesterday. However, I have yet to receive the update and I know plenty of others that are currently in the dark as well.

Oddly enough, the only thing I’ve seen officially come out of Verizon’s mouth is that the update would be rolling out soon. I haven’t seen any sort of confirmation about the update actually rolling out.

Typical Verizon, staying silent when its customers deserve some answers.

This is almost as worse as waiting five months in silence for the update because now I am checking my phone every couple of minutes to see if the update has arrived.

Along with the long wait times for major Android updates, this whole rolling out updates in small batches is something else I can’t stand.

Well, assuming the update is rolling out in small batches. Again, I haven’t heard from anyone that has received the update yet. Must be a lucky couple hundred of people out there or something.

I don’t understand why Verizon couldn’t have just given the update a specific date for release. Verizon just dedicated a post to the Motorola Xoom Ice Cream Sandwich update, specifically for that reason. Why not for the Galaxy Nexus owners who have waited in agony for five months?

Why not some sort of confirmation saying, yes, the update is rolling out?

Why the silence and the mystery?

I said on Twitter earlier that I feel like I’m being trolled and I imagine that many others probably feel the same way.

So, it’s Friday, and hopefully I’ll get the update over the weekend so I can write up some first impressions about the software. Until then though, I’m going to be checking my phone every 10 minutes to see if the update has arrived.

And if that’s not Verizon continuing to troll the Galaxy Nexus, I don’t know what is.

Anyone else in the same boat?
