I watched it install when the rep turned on my phone to activate. Not much I could do short of punching the guy in the face...

I don't recall seeing an option to reject the update (may have just missed it). Does anyone know if you did defer the update, can you continue to defer (or reject) it when it attempts to remind you again? Mine is set to remind me again tomorrow afternoon and I'd like to just reject it then, if possible. Either way, I damn sure don't want it auto-installing after my defer period arrives.

This is exactly why I'm pissed. The fact the Verizon would go to this extreme and possibly put someone at risk of ending up with a 5.5 inch paper weight. Once I bought this phone it became mine. With that said I will remain on beans unlocked and happy for ever. This rom is perfection.

I would have told him nope. That's not what I paid for and demand another phone or cancel the transaction.

Go back to that store and demand an exchange. The guy shouldn't have done anything to your phone such as update it.

Dude, it happened so fast it was too late. I had no idea an OTA rolled out yesterday. It literally applied in seconds. I saw the screen and it rebooted. I could have told him I wanted grey instead of white, but I just thought of that. Lol.

I have faith.

I've yet to read of one instance where someone who didn't tinker or unlock their phone got bricked from an OTA. You took your chances unlocking and rooting it. If you didn't (stayed stock) and an OTA bricked you?? That's a different story. You don't hear about it because it doesn't happen.

It will work out just fine. I'm not under contract and I've been paying full price for my phones for a little over a year. If they break something I paid for I'll (very publicly and disruptively) take my business elsewhere.
