Nope, no one knows if and when. They released the new .75 and .76 OS upgrades already, but Verizon in the past has been notoriously slow to release OS upgrades.

And no one knows for sure what release it will be.

.78 is for the 9500, not the OP 9530.

.76 is legit from Bell. It can be installed on the 9530. Verizon still has .75.

Thanks .. Although I have to tell you that I have only had one issue with .85 and that is the random failure to unlock the device, other than that it has been perfect for me.

I don't see why you'd want to do OTA, it takes forever for the OS to actually download.

I have done OTA before, it only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, not bad at all.

The current rumor is that Verizon will be "officially" releasing .86 soon.

Excellent rumor, I am still waiting to see .86 in the wild ... .85 runs great for me.
