I got my phone ( #Droid3 ) 2-3 weeks after it came out in the expectation that it would be supported with featured updates for my whole contract. It has been stated by #motorolamobility  [3,4] that it is no longer getting updates only 10 months after it was released.

+Google announced #ics  on May 10th, 2011 [1] and the Droid 3 was announced on July 7th [2]. That is plenty of time after ICS to assume the D3 will support ICS in the future.

I want to know what +Verizon Wireless is doing or can do to support my phone with updates beyond bug fixes. Waiving the ETF, ending the contact after a year would be my preferred outcome so I can get a phone that is actually going to supported for its full 'life'.
