So, how do you like it?
Would you recommend upgrading? (I've got 3 Bursts - mine, wife;s, daughter's. Don't want to screw them up.)

Hey guys,
This is my first smartphone so I'm not sure the process of updating OS. Will it erase all my apps, contacts, memos, etc? I really want to update, but I'm worried I might lose all my stuff. I've called ATT and they didn't really fix the problem. Any help would be appreciated! Thx in advance!

i got all my apps after update ... as i didnt had any message/contacts so cant confirm

just sync contacts with google and for message backup use smsback apps and then you can safely update [this is just for precaution if in case these things are messed up while update]

No problems for me and I had never done it before. The Burst has an automated backup system and as long as you have had that turned on you won't lose anything. It still works just fine with the Burst PC Suite also.

Does the upgrade contain all the same ATT bloatware that came with the Gingerbread version?

yes and theres slightly more, but you can Disable it after uninstalling the 'updates' its a nice feature but still slightly runs the ram
get the app 'fast boot' it helps =)

Can someone help me out with this? I used to really like my Burst and Android Gingerbread. I upgraded, and it's not that I don't like ICS, but everything is a disaster. I can't upgrade or download apps because I'm getting a series of errors including "insufficient storage space," "package is invalid," and "invalid source url." I have cleared the google play cache and data more times than I can count.

Even worse, a huge amount of apps I already had installed now appear as though they are not, both in the google play store and in the apps list, where I see a bunch of default emblems with an android SD icon. When I click on those, it says app is not installed, even though they worked right after I upgraded, but before I restarted my phone.

I really don't want to do a factory reset for fear of losing all my app data, but this is just becoming infuriating.

I am having the same problems. I've got 31 updates waiting and every time I have tried to update them I get the same messages, if it's not "insufficient storage available" it's one of the other two about invalid whatever. Nothing I have tried has worked, it is becoming quite frustrating.
