Hello everyone , new here!

I've been struggling between official unlocked or verizon one, finally got a pretty good deal from craigslist and I'am so happy with my m8, except the Verizon logo on the back

I have seen the update diagram from HTC official site and carriers are almost always slower than official firmware update...

So I just wonder is there anyway to allow my Verizon One update directly from HTC, not Verizon.

Thank you guys!

HTC will be back!

I think as long as your phone is a Verizon phone or any other carrier for that matter you will always need to receive the update from the carrier. Unless you get a GPE or from HTC. I could be wrong, but this is what I understand from reading the forums and stuff.

What the Stig said.

Only dev phones and GPE phones get updates direct from HTC.

Unfortunately, those are GSM only phones.

On Verizon, you can only get official updates from Verizon.
