Default Contact htc/att for updates

Hi to all.

I was thinking of requesting all members out in the community (at least on XDA) to put a shout out to HTC and/or AT&T for getting us update to Ice Cream Sandwich. Perhaps if we were all to send in an email or something then it may get the point across to them that we want ICS - if not at least some news about their plans. If we all pool in and probably bombard them it may get us some more solid response rather than only 1 or 2 of us trying our luck.

I was thinking that around the 15th of May we would all get to it.

juannicolas has already agreed to help in.

Request all with the device to pool in.

We will however need adequate contact details for getting through to the right people. So those of us who have gotten a reply previously/know any contact details, please add them in so that it will be of aid in our project.

I got an email from HTC - a customer service specialist from connie_sullivan@htc.com

Please add in any other contact details available.

Also, I remember cookiesowns @ http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=17799114 having got his hands on a dev device. A big shout out to him to help us if he can get in contact with someone at HTC he knew from who he got the device so that that person could help us out if possible. Will PM him later on.


UPDATE 9th May, 2012:

As of now, we are planning on going ahead with how many we can on the 15th May, 2012 and then again on the 1st June and then decide further plan. Thought would be a good idea to update the 1st post here:

The following will be the locations where we would voice our concerns:

Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/HTC - post in

Facebook HTC USA: http://www.facebook.com/htcusa - post in

Twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/htc - tweet

HTC ICS Blog: http://blog.htc.com/2012/03/ics/ - comment

HTC Tell us what you think blog: http://blog.htc.com/2012/04/your-pho...hat-you-think/ - comment

HTC Support: http://www.htc.com/us/support/email-support - email them

HTC write a Review for HTC Jetstream: http://www.htc.com/us/tablets/htc-jetstream-att/ - include grievances about no ICS/information about updates

Also, an online petition has been created for all HTC tablets wanting ICS (Flyer, View and Jetstream) and they also joining in. Link is http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/h...-want-updates/

So, do sign in, spread the word and lets hope for the best. Will post further updates in the thread and in this post as well.


UPDATE 14TH MAY 2012

Many of you have heard about thenews posted at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1651651. We will however still continue with the above plans tomorrow-I.e. 15th May 2012 by contacting HTC by different means. However, a small change. Please add in that give us ICS or release the source code and partition block data so that we can do so if you'll aren't interested.

Ipetition for the same also made at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/r...tion-data-for/

Do sign, spread the word and join in tomorrow. We shall repeat the exercise on the 1st June again. HTC is liable to answer us so we deserve an answer. Chances are more we will get an answer if we all join in.

DONATE TO ME
I'm in.
but i'm not sure that bombarding a useless minion that knows nothing will do the trick..
we should do that, and also use the public platform - Facebook page, twitter, HTC ics blog (http://blog.htc.com/2012/03/ics/). all with the same massage at the same day..

I'm in if it means spamming the blog/twitter/facebook, but I will not participate in email-bombing some poor CSR. That's not going to get anything done, and it'll piss off someone who, presumably, has done nothing wrong.

Default Add in an online petition too?

Would it be a good idea to add in an online petition too? If yes, anyone willing to take that up and get it started as well and share details here?

I am in the process of manually getting hold of the users who have a Jetstream so as to PM them all about the plan and ask for their support too.
Have got only the Development section to check for users who posted in the General, Accessories and Apps sections. Will take a while for sure.
