GetItNow application disabled[edit]

Verizon notified its users of this and many other "older" phones that unless they accessed the GetItNow function of their phones prior to March 25 of 2011 and installed a critical update, they would never be able to use any of the GetItNow applications (including the backup assistant) again. After March 25, the update became unavailable— Verizon was the sole source of this update.[1]
