Awesome! Hope I get it today. Was a bummer not getting it in Q3 like I was told but then again this is probably going to be much more stable since there were 2 unreleased ICS versions before it.

Now all you guys have to do is get 4G LTE up and running in Des Moines, Iowa.

You can check, but chances are, you just have to wait.

The update was pushed to my phone on the 1st, but it didn't stick for some reason. Now my phone says there's no firmware update available. Anyone else experiencing this sort of problem?

Sprint, you have left me completely underwhelmed.  It's one thing to wait for an update to be available.  But 3 days after it's available my phone still hasn't received it.  I guess the network can only handle a few phones a day.

The general update page linked to up top says "Released in stages with 100% of devices having received the update within 10-15 days" many software update roll outs can take several weeks.

has anyone been able to figure out any pattern to the updates or is it just completely random.

Re: 11/1 - LG Viper 4G LTE Software Update - Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) - LS840ZVI

Google's GOTA servers pick device serial numbers at random to be eligible for the update. This allows for network management and to ensure that everyone gets the download without the server bottlenecking and causing severely slow downloads because everyone is trying to get the update.
