One ICS peeve (for now) is that, whenever I plug something into the headphone jack, it automatically turns down the volume ("to protect my hearing").

First of all, Google gets the "One-Finger-Salute" for trying to be my f-ing nanny! I'm an adult for f-sake (pushing 50 at that!)! I think I can figure out how to turn the volume down on my own - if I want.

Anyway, this really pisses me off because 9 out of 10 times, I'm plugging it into my car radio and the audio output from the Spectrum is weak, even at full volume, in comparison to the radio & cd inputs.

I noticed that too. Irritating to say the least. I have found that the volume under ICS really does suck. I've tried a couple of volume booster apps, but nothing really does the trick. Hopefully one of our devs can fix that.

I don't like the fact that ring tone and notification tone volume can't be controlled by the same slider, as in the past. Also, can't get a Sound control widget, as with my last version, whatever it was.

I have not noticed the problem with volume going down. I would imagine it to be a feature.

One thing FWIW: I use MixZing Basic to listen to music and watch videos. There is an equalizer built into it, and it does work. You can emphasize the various channels, not just attenuate.

I use Subsonic for the same reason. The EQ helps (at least a bit). I've encountered the volume protection message. Not sure how to fix it. Might dig into a few jars and apks and see what's what.

So you can get an eq app to work? I tried a few and keep getting errors that the rom doesn't support an eq. I can only seem to use eqsif they're built into a player like Sense or Winamp... Standalone won't work.

I can't say "work" is the right word. There were no FCs, but also no difference. Ones built into apps seem to affect audio quality, but standalone ones seem to do nothing.

I'm on IcyFusion again and I'm having the same thing. Very low audio in everything.

That's odd because I used to get reboots all the time and haven't had a single one since the upgrade.

Are you using adw launcher? There's a known issue with that app and this device that existed on the gb stock and also the upgrade.

FWIW: I have only had 2 reboots since OTA of ICS, and both were related to me playing with Bluetooth and TuneIn at the time if I recall correctly, streaming to a A2DP stereo receiver I use with amplified computer speakers.

I might have posted this before, but this is what I am using:

I haven't had a single reboot either on v7. Not for lack of trying.

The only issue I'm experiencing is the low volume.

Here's a new one. I grabbed my phone while it was connected to the charger this morning, to reply to a text. Heck no. The "keyboard" would not cooperate. I've never noticed this before....not that I type many texts while the charger is plugged in, but it was certainly not working properly.

No random reboots for me, first time ever.

I am having a new problem though, of I let Facebook merge connects, the phone app crashes with an error that contacts crashed.

Only fix is to clear data on contacts and contact storage, then I can make a call of I am fast enough, before it downloads all my contacts again, or I have to turn off Facebook contact syncing.

Not sure of I am hitting a maximum number of contacts for the LG contact app?

Is that with the stock keyboard or an add on ? I've texted a lot while charging with no problems, using SwiftKey 3.

Stock messaging. I'd hit a key, and it would hesitate, then pop up several letters that I did not hit. I unplugged and it went back to normal.

*Just went and experimented. It's not just the messaging keyboard, it's everything. Not sure if it's the touchscreen or what. But it's very hard to do anything while it's plugged in. Even just trying to tap on an app to open it, it will open an app two rows over!

TBK: Memory Jogger... Yeah I experienced a little freaky behavior when I had my phone plugged in and it had been at 100% for a while, like maybe an over-voltage situation? As soon as I unplugged, everything was good. This was while I was on GB and it's only happened once.

I have had an issue with a charger before the ICS update. It was my friends charger so I'm not sure of the brand but my phone went all wacky. I thought it was my phone and actually did a factory reset. After doing that my friend piped up and said "Yeah, that charger messes my phone up, too." Weellll thanks Ed! However he has a Droid Bionic and was running GB then too.

On another note, I have had an issue with LG keyboard but in only one situation. When a text pops up, I can reply and type fine up til the end of the of 160 count. after that it will not type. If I open up into the message dialog, it works fine. It only does that when it's the popup. Doesn't matter if on the charger or not, the problem is persistent regardless.

Same here, but I've also had that issue with the swype keyboard as well.

Default Stock email client blank folder list

UPDATE: found a solution right after posting this: https://community.verizonwireless.com/thread/786282

Having a problem w/ the stock email client - I have to connect to an exchange server for a work email. Always worked fine before, but after ics update the client appears to be functioning fine but the list of emails in any folder (like, say the INBOX) is just blank. I've seen other forums for other brands where this happened post-ICS and what fixed it was fiddling the font settings from w/in the app, but the Spectrum/Verizon version doesn't have an in-app font settings. I tried changing the system font to no effect - likewise various combinations of reboots and also wiping and re-adding the account. Any suggestions or ideas much appreciated.

just wanted to give an update to an earlier post i made in this thread. i had been having reboot issues and inquired a few times about it. it was suggested to me to format my sd card and if needed to get a new one and/or a new sim card. thanks for the help from those who answered. formatting the card was as far as i got and it seems to have solved my problem. the phone has only done it once or twice since and its been about a week. just thought this could help someone else who may have missed this info like i did. you guys are always patient with the people who are sincerely trying to learn and its appreciated.

ghavas09! please don't take the update while on any custom rom! You must return your phone to full stock first! you must be on the stock rom and stock recovery!

Have you been following the threads at all!?! This has been covered extensively!

Never had this happen before, but my Spectrum completely locked up yesterday. I ended up pulling the battery to get it to reboot.

There's an entire thread about this process in the root section. There is even a completely stock v6 rom you can flash along with the stock recovery restorer.

There are flashable zips of the stock rom and recovery located in the all things root section. If you follow the guide, you can't go wrong.

Had my first random reboot two days ago, late. I was headed to bed and saw the boot animation going. The phone was plugged in to the wall at the time, charging (slow, usb bullshit).

Then last night I plugged my phone up, when I woke up it was powered off, when I powered it on, the battery was at 17% although it had been plugged in for 10 hours. It turned on with out an issue.

Has anyone figured out what is causing the home button to not work anymore? Or anyone still have that problem?

My home screen replacement app had an option to change the function of the home button. If I install it, I lose my hone button completely. A restore and I did not install my hone screen replacement app and have not had an issue since. I was using zeam launcher, which says they've fixed some issues with ICS on their most recent update, so who knows...

My phone has no bluetooth at all now, I can't sync with my ford truck. I've tried everything and nothing works. Battery life is horrendous, I have apps that I have to force stop that i've never seen before. Phone does not vibrate at all even if put into vibrate only also doesn't vibrate with ringtone even though it says its on.

What can I do to get rid of these apps that have appeared with the upgrade? I want to uninstall all this crap i dont use or need like tunewiki, espn, nfl, slacker radio, etc.

And what can I do to get the bluetooth to work with my truck again?

Did you unlock the bootloader? If you did, then that is why you have no Bluetooth. You'll have to flash the OS with the .cab method.

i have no clue if i unlocked it. I was driving with my wife, message came thru on phone to upgrade, i told her to click yes and then it did it. I've not touched anything other then the settings i've touched in the past before this upgrade.

How do i flash the os with that .cab method?

Yeah I unlocked the bootloader myself. Once I get done researching about laptop student discounts I will try the .cab method. I will tell you if it works by tomorrow.

You may need to do a factory data reset. It is recommended before and after the ICS update. You can try a couple power offs and back on, but more than likely won't help.

that hasn't done anything, powering off and taking the battery out. If I do the factory reset, do i lose all the pics and vids i have on the camera? apps i've downloaded?

Pics and videos will be saved on your sd card. Apps will be lost, I may be wrong but I think Google keeps track of paid apps though . Or you can root and use an app like My Backup Root or Rom Toolbox to back up your apps and data. Then reroot after the FDR and restore apps.

Root and use an app Like Titanium back up or Rom Tool Box and freeze them.

With ICS you can disable most of them without being rooted. Just go to app manager, select the app you don't want, and disable will be the top right option.
