Has anyone heard when the DI2 is going to get the ICS update? I kept reading that it was going to be by the end of August, but here we are in September, and I'm still running the old version. Anyone have any news?
You probably need to contact Verizon as they work closely with the phone manufacturers to release these updates via Verizon as I've noticed in the past. You can go into your settings, scroll to bottom, select either about or check for updates, can't remember to be exact then you'll seer if anything is available. Generally based on previous experience with various Android devices I own and have owned in the past a notification will appear in the top bar area letting you know a update is available. The best way to get the latest info is to contact Verizon Wireless Customer support, *611 from any verizon device or 800-922-0204 from a landline but notfrom the phone as VZW will want to be able to have you perform certain tasks or functions on your device in question.

Hi @zwickl, there isn't any more news on the update at the moment. We know that the plan was to have the update finished by the end of August, and that didn't happen. As far as I'm aware, the development team is continuing to actively work with Verizon to get everything ready to roll out.
You can follow us on Facebook (http://facebook.com/htcusa), and especially on the HTC Blog -- where we have a dedicated post for news on ICS updates at blog.htc.com/.../ics -- for more information as it becomes available. And as @dtnel pointed out, Verizon is a great source for information as well.
I wish there was something more concrete to share with you, but I do hope that sheds some light!
This whole ics update has really pissed off alot of htc owners.myself will be leaving htc as soon as my contract is up.really tired of all the b.s.that they put out as exuses forwhy we dont have ics and people are saying jellybean is already coming out.wtf
HTC only talks about the HTC One X on facebook, The Incredible 2 is just over a year old and we can get an update, I don't think that will change if I upgrade to the One X, a year from now they won't care about that either, I've had 2 HTC's but not sure the support is there.
I love my Incredible 2 and this is my third HTC device (Hero & Incredible) but it could be my last if the ICS for the INC2 is scrapped. Might scrap Verizon too as I am sure they are most of the problem.
Do you have ANY idea what so ever what you are talking about? Verizon has absolutely '0' to do with the actual rom. All they do is load it on a server and send a signal to phones to say there is an update available.
HTC still retains ALL responsibility for the actual programming and completion of the rom. If you are going to get on a website and answer questions, you should make sure you know the answer yourself first.
They had almost a year to figure out the bugs. I quess I will get the new droid incredible in nov 2012.
Or the carrier holds back the ROM update intentionally so that it forces you to upgrade to a newer handset. Don't think the carriers & manufacturers don't conspire. I hate Apple but at least Apple did it right and kept 100% control of their handsets. I have been running the XDA rom for over a month now and it works pretty well so I can;t believe the official ROM is that tough to finish up - unless they don't want to finish it up.
I came here looking for information on ICS because I can't run cisco anyconnect on this ancient version of andriod. While looking around the forum I realized I have the same problems as everyone else here.
The charge port on my phone is loose and my Verizon brand charging cables don't work (other ones do). My alarm clock app disappeared and I had to do a factory reset to get it back. The voice dialer sucks and constantly misdails (maybe that is a generic android issue). All in all I'm pretty disappointed with this phone and its lack of quality. I have a Motorola Xoom tablet that is on jelly bean or whatever is the latest and have no issues with it (it's not a phone so can't comment on voice dial).
I agree with previous posts that this will be my last HTC device. I can't afford to get stuck with poor quality for 2 another years.
Oh, and the sync software never ever worked properly (I have windows and yes I talked to tech support but they were no help). I finally discovered Cheetah Sync to let me get the pictures transfered (I highly recommend it).
Hi everyone. Unfortunately, there is no new information on the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the DROID Incredible 2. As soon as I have more information, I will come back and let you know.
@bigL. Sorry to hear about all the issues you've faced, especially in regards to the charging port and cables. I would urge you to contact Customer Support about these concerns. The number you will want in this case is 1-888-617-1113. Please let me know how you make out!
This is really unacceptable that HTC has left it customers with the Incredible 2 out of he loop on what is going on with the ICS update. Due to this situation I will never buy another HTC phone again due to the way they have treated us. Next phone will be a Samsung Nexus as i will have control over what ROM is on the phone.
Sorry @jwtr, I wish I had more information to give, but there is not any. I will, however, forward your comments internally, and will definitely let you know in this thread when there is more news. Thank you :)
What she really means, is they don't care what you think. They are focusing on their Japanese market with this new piece of technology. So they have better things to worry about than your phone. They pulled this same stunt with the Incredible 1, and blamed it all on Verizon as they are doing now saying they are working with Verizon to test it. Then in the end they put Verizon out to be the bad guy when Verizon has no access to their software until the soak test. July 13th when my contract is up, I'll be switching to Samsung who already is pushing Jelly Bean on their new devices. HTC has lowered themselves to the depths of Motorola. Something I didn't think was possible.
