Verizon works with the OEMs on the phone(s) they want to update. The decision to update the devices rests solely on VZW and not the OEMs.

Seems like vzw is always royally screwing Samsung users. I had a fascinate (still do with jts cm9 kang) and their gb update screwed the phone up, so i had to flash Justin's leak of eh03 on it. I know its off topic but just another example of sorry ass vzw ideas

Is this still the same list that has NO Samsung phones on it? So none of them are getting an upgrade?

List is obviously not near complete....

I have heard from more than one person that Samsung has internal ICS builds for the Charge. I don't see them working on builds internally if there are no plans to upgrade the phone. Just look at the Continuum, it had internal builds of Froyo and it got updated, though it was about 8 months after every other Galaxy S phone got updated. Odds are, they will just roll out ICS to fix problems rather than working on fixing stuff in GB in the next update.

what repercussion is there if the manufacturer doesn't oblige a request to upgrade a certain device?

If and(or) when the Charge gets ICS I"ll most likely have a different phone. have my doubts it will get it though.
I'm just glad the charge devs around here have kept me content with this phone for so long.

Eh,I'm currently running JT's CM9 and, personally, it's very close to a daily driver. All I need is data/mms/camera and I'd be set. I have faith the RIL will be figured out in due time.

They are also supposedly adding some ICS features to the original galaxy S line like face unlock and a new camera app so maybe we are getting that too...
