Really, Verizon? You too?

So mainly my cellphone is off. This morning I needed to call someone. Turn on phone. It doesn't find my Bluetooth earset right away, so I manually go in and do it.

In the middle of this I am interrupted by Messaging popping up telling me my online bill is ready. Clear that.

So now I'm ready to start dialing my phone number. Got the first four digits in and...

Oh, given my previous posting, you can probably guess that it was a countdown screen saying that Verizon was going to download software improvements to my LG Cosmos 3 phone in 29... 28... No opt out. Press OK. It downloads. New screen -- it's going to run the update in 3 minutes and will take 3 minutes to run.

This one, at least, has a Delay button, but since it already interrupted me, I just went ahead and ran it. Actually, I had two students come in, so I don't know what other "important" messages Verizon had to say.

But I tell you, these vendors really have to come up with a more civilized way of pushing updates to the users.
