There is no official Date yet, but it should be coming soon.

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.

The fact that this phone is essentially the Nexus 4 and yet still does not have JB is a bit of a joke.

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.

I heard the Nexus 4 isn't 4G. If that's the case isn't that a step backward?

Yes and no. Hspa+(fake 4g) is fast enough for pretty much do anything you need it for on a mobile device. Lte ( true 4g) is still brand new and is a battery hog that's why Google didn't include lte just yet. And another thing Google wants users to have the best experience with their androids and doesn't want carriers to mess with their update schedule

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.
