    I am a former BB user who is on VZW. I love the service, but they are terrible with controlling the OS releases. I am still doubtnig that VZW will release ios5 today. Not sure how, but I think they will block it.. that is until I see different with my own eyes
    I have Verizon and I've always gotten my iOS releases and/or updates on the same day as everyone else. Verizon has nothing to do with that. It's all Apple's say on what gets released when.

    Whether they do or don't, the point is that I've still gotten my iOS releases on the same day as everyone else.

    I would of never thought I would see that question asked before. "What does noon mean". LOL

    That made my day.
    It was a serious question. It is "noon" God's time. But it is not noon Steve's time. Who is in charge?

    Really? Whats your magic trick? 4.3 was delayed for Verizon users when ATT users happily downloaded.

    Verizon had nothing to do with that. That was apple putting out different OS's because of the different hardware and release schedules. This is a major OS release and now they are all on the same release schedule with the same hardware. The minute software changes might be different because of cdma vs gsm. But no Verizon has nothing to do with when the software updates are released. it is all apple's bidding.

    FWIW, no carrier handles Blackberry updates properly. Sprint, AT&T and Verizon all are always far behind on the latest OS build. When I had my Curve I almost always had to flash a different carriers software to my phone.

    Apple has forked their software before. To blame Verizon for that is foolish. I do know its cool to hate Verizon on this site though because they wouldn't bend to Apple's initial demand of having 100% control over the phone but they have given in.

    I know that VZW doesn't push out updates for BlackBerries as quickly as other carriers do because of their Q&A department and process. To some extent this is good but it is also bad. I know this for a fact because of people I know who work at VZW high up in the corporate ladder.

    I'm just guessing when I said it'd take a while but I don't really care. At this point, I'm just happy that my iPhone4 is working because I've gone through 7 since I got them two days before the original release.

    Apple makes these decisions. Not the carriers. How many carriers load their phones down with their "special" CRapps? All of them. How many carriers put this CRappware on their iPhone? NONE.

    Trust me, Apple is the big dog here, and the carriers are the tails that get wagged.

I want the new OS for my iPhone but I love the lil tweaks I have like folders, fonts, and how I can lay out my icons on each page..oh and changing the carrier name to what I want instead of Verizon...bite SMS and just the overall look cause with the jailbreak I already have the notification center. what to do....
