Guess I didn't read far enough. Answers to my questions are right there in the blog. That's what I get for just glancing at it versus reading through it. Looks like we can either get it manually or wait for it to be pushed to the phone. Think I'll go see about getting it manually.
Menu, Settings, About Phone, Software Version = LS840ZVC
Menu, Settings, System Updates, Update LG Software = "Your system is up to date."
I can't seem to manually get the update. Also, I see occasionally a general message that comes up that says "The system update is complete." But, it does not say anything further, and I do not know if this is relative to this system update or some other app trying to update. Any ideas?
I am still not able to get the update and it has been over 10 days. I'll have to admit I am not too worried about it since the "Google Security fix" isn't specific enough to concern me and the "Quick Memo" app appears to be available for free on Google Play. I am just more curious about how efficiently updates/fixes are distributed.
Update was finally pushed to my phone. Seems to be working ok.

Not sure and can't find the additional feature that says it is supposed to be able to allow you to take screen shots if I'm interpreting it correctly.
Keleigh_Bryan, my wife got stylus that she is very happy with at the Sprint Store. It has a rubber tip and a pink body. I had her put a lanyard on it that she threaded through the case on her phone. She says it works out really well. Something about her hands not having enough conductivity to get the screen to respond. This stylus did the trick. The brand is iFrogz, and attached is a photo on how she keeps it handy.
Well I finally got the update pushed to my phone last night.
Guess what? Quick memo is not an app. I actually had to go into a special instruction manual I got from LG to learn how to use quick memo.
There is no instruction that came with the update, Sprint! You need to at least tell people how to use it!
You hold the Volume up and down keys together for one second.
Dang. You really are a genius. It works. It doesn't really give you feedback on how long you have to hold both volume buttons, but about a second does the trick. I find it very akward that you have to activate it using both volume buttons. I thought I read that it was going to be a long press on the menu softkey. That would have been way more convenient. Oh, well.
Now I'm hoping we'll get the Ice Cream Sandwich update with this phone. There are some newer apps I can't use without it.
