Verizon doesn't test ANY firmware. It's all Sony. So it has nothing to do with verizon being horrible at OTA's (which they are) but Sony has already said NO ICS WILL BE AN OTA. So it won't be ics, ics will hit in summer. Verzion just makes it VERY difficult for companies that's all lol. And being that the playstation crap for devs is already available from ps it won't be verizon pushing it because there is no "general public" version, just for developers. It will more then likely be 2.3.4 until ics hits. There is already a beta for ics for cdma users just not in the wild

On the ICS for CDMA, just wondering where you heard that from? Also as Verizon bootloaders cannot be unlocked via Sony's website, other then going through the usual XDA members to unlock BL how would a CDMA ICS beta be flashed? Just some thoughts...

Not to be rude or anything, but that isn't true. I can tell you from firsthand experience.

Not that it detracts from your argument, just thought I'd point that out.

Verizon is the number one reason their phones arent always running the latest firmwares. It was kinda clear from the info posted that this wouldn't be ICS IMO (which my opinion usually doesn't mean anything anyway ) If you look at all of the models they carry that are not "supposed" to get ICS, that have "better specs" then our Plays, it was clear to me .... and Verizon didnt care much about the Xperia Play either though, they were to busy selling iphones , and if you look at their sales, they have sold more iphones in recent quarters then all of their android models combined (but could be due to the fact that they didnt carry the iphone before anyway, random I know). I would hope they drop 2.3.4 on the Play, it would be long over due and still partly outdated (like most of their updates) I for one dont care if they officially make 2.3.4 though, I would much rather have a newer baseband that worked with the Uk 2.3.4 systems because (and here comes another IMO) but screw Verizon firmware. . .

And a BAD update is worse than no update at all.

I'm pretty sure Verizon wants nothing to do with CyanogenMod.
