It appears that the Motorola Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update release date and the Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich update release date are close.
We have received a number of tips and a few comments from readers who have said that Verizon has sent out a text message informing Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners that the update is indeed close.
The carrier did not provide a specific release date for the Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update but we assume that the roll out is now closer than ever.

Here is Verizon’s text message to Droid RAZR owners:
Free Verizon Message: Your phone will soon be upgraded to Android 4.0. At that time we will remove your Verizon Wireless Mobile IM app because it is not supported in Android 4.0. Please download a new instant messaging app to use IM on your phone. Thank you for using Mobile IM!
So, it would appear that Verizon is getting ready to release the update. It still has just around half a month to get the software to Droid RAZR owners as promised and hopefully it does so before the very end of the month.
At this point, we doubt that June passed without a Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update, so owners, rest easy.
Droid RAZR MAXX have apparently been sent the message too. It’s unclear if Verizon will be rolling out the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich updates simultaneously or if one will roll out after the other.
Motorola and Verizon have also promised a June roll out date for the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich update as well, but like the Droid RAZR Android 4.0 update, several rumored release dates have come and gone without any sort of roll out to speak of.
In any event, it looks like things are moving for Droid RAZR owners, at the very least, so be on the look out for an Android 4.0 release date for both smartphones soon.
