Online chatted with customer support on LG's site. As you know, the 4.2.1 update was released in Korea. He explained we're waiting on AT&T which will test the software and 'enhance' it with thier bloatware before releasing. Will probably be 2 more months.

Signed up just to echo the frustrations with all current optimus G device owners. What is so difficult about giving us, your loyal customers, a smidgeon of news? Must I keep checking to see if there will be an update? One of the reasons I got this phone hoping the "flagship" status would keep it updated at least every once and awhile. The utter lack of communication from the company on this subject with not just this phone, but many others is just not right. Please AT&T, show us a little respect. Let us know at least IF we will get an update to jellybean. Seriously.

I wish I had Nexus 4. The only this which stopped me from owning it is the lack of LTE. Now, after getting used to LTE I cannot imagine using a phone without it.
LG & AT&T: You are killing this awesome phone by not providing required support. The Korean version has received Jelly Bean long time back and we are still waiting with no date to look up to. The way you're creating a history your future will be dark for sure.

If you keep supporting att lte devices and services their future is going to be great. You said it yourself your not willing to get the nexus for lack of lte but still complain for not having jellybean on a device that's not guarantee to get any updates.

ATT get your act together! People (paying customers) have been waiting unnecessarily for months now. It sucks to have one of the best phones out there but running an OS that's several iterations behind current. Do you need help? Should I get out and push?!?

It is frustrating that there is still no Jellie Bean for the Optimus G.
For all of you Nexus 4 owners, remember 2 more things besides the lack of LTE...
NO SD CARD. My Optimus G has 48 GB. How much does the Nexus have 8 GB, or 16 GB if you are lucky?
Also, oh yeah YOU CANT BUY ONE! THEY ONLY MADE 400,000 OF THEM AND THEY WERE NEVER IN STOCK...
Anyway, I have 4.2.2 on my Nexus 7 it is fantastic. And it is stupid that the Optimus G software iscompletely outdated.

No one signs up because of the bloatware you load onto your phones, but they do leave for other carriers that offer better phones and timely updates. Please keep this in mind.

I am holding off on purchasing the LGOG, until I at least know that an update is coming. I have been with AT&T ever since they bought Cellular One, then changed to Cingular then back to AT&T. They certainly send me enough emails and snail mail asking me to upgrade, add service, or swicth to a different plan. All we're asking for is a little info.
I'm at a point now where my contract is up and I am free to switch carriers if I like. I've been a loyal customer to the same carrier (in one of its forms) for over 15 years. A little courtesy back would be nice.

Why does The LGOG need JB? Not that anyone asked, but I have some time, so I'll type:
In my opinon the LGOG borders on too big, the Pro is too big, along with those samsung monsters.
I work and travel a lot I don't need a tablet hanging from my hip. but the LGOG is acceptable.
I don't need to keep up with all the social pages every second of the day. I couldn't care less what Jimmy's cat is doing under the dogs tail, or what drink Suzie is going to order at S*#$bucks, So those goofy windows 8 phones, with their front ends and the like, are a waste of my data plan. When I want to see a stick figure of Batman saying something funny to Spiderman, or another picture of a homeless, abused dog, then I'll log on FB and get all I need.
I don't want my phone manufacturer to decide what files I can download and transfer, or control what media files I can have, I certainly don't need to use cloud services to access files that I own, it doesn't help when you on the road without a data plan for your laptop. so Apple is OUT! And I don't want to spend the extra $40.00 a month for the one or two files I forgot to transfer before I left the office. It's not worth it.
I need a good working phone, that lets me work the way I want to work, and Android JB is the first really good Android out there.
I liked the Atrix HD but lack of memory, and battery life shot that down. I'm not streaming or surfing a lot, but I am actually on the phone a lot, communicating like God meant us to communicate, verbally, over choppy, digital, wireless connections.
The HTC OX+ was nice but it dosn't have a MicroSD slot which I use often to transfer and store files. and it has that camera protrusion which make it look more like a toy.
All of the other AT&T phones are just toys.
The LGOG is the closest fit, its a little big (I can deal with that), its got good memory, sd slot, fast, slick with no protrusions, and awesome battery life. It just needs the JB update.
So how about AT&T? throw us a bone!
