    After going all weekend long with stellar battery life on wifi I'm hoping the rumored firmware update will fix the issue I'm having on 3g 2 hours and I'm down. To 75 percent!!

    It may not, if you are in a poor reception area, where your signal strength is less than -95dBm.

    Mission one of the update is apparently to fix where data will stop working and requires a reboot, or wait untill it finally reaquires. This is per VZW folks. Bionic has it too, but worse than the Razr (though it has happened to me three times). Does not matter if 3G or 4G for the data loss.

    Sad to say but there is a chance that "full bars" is not an accurate representation of the phones current signal strength. The graph in the notification bar is simply a product of a mathematical calculation performed within the phone. It's possible that the formula they used is flawed. Unfortunately this has happened in the past with other phones.

    Signal and battery life bars are in the same semi alternate reality ;)

    I would not count on that if you are asking about Ice Cream Sandwich. The source code was only released to manufacturers less than 2 weeks ago or so and they will neen some time to get it to phones.

    No, not for ICS. I mean a firmware update to fix bugs, kinks, etc as per OP. Those kinds of things.

    My guess is it will be bundled with ICS.

    I think the person maybe talking about a firmware upgrade I read when the phone 1st came out that said an upgrade was coming in december.

    I think it maybe only for US folks, if i remember right it was something to do with 4g drops etc and some minor improvement tweaks. I asked a question if it would be for all or just verizon people with no response

    Im sure I read about it in this forum, searched and I shall find lol
