I signed up on Moto's site in late January for this right after I got my Photon. Still haven't heard anything back unfortunately. I would think I make a good candidate, I work in IT and manage mobile users with iPhone, BB, and android.


Did some more digging on Moto's site and found this: https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c which gives a better timeline for ICS on Photon.

the moto ics leaked images from this week are lookin pretty nice.


very stock looking... not the old blur we used to know.




Yes, very nice looking. I do like how Motorola has toned tone it down and quit butchering the OS. It almost looks acceptable. Not like when it was designed as a social network UI. Moto isn't calling it Motoblur any longer, but I can't find the new name.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
