    4.5" I really like this phone. A lot of people are dissatisfied with the level of development, but just today, things are starting to take off...lots of folks getting excited about learning to cook roms! You may consider waiting for the HTC OneX...check it out!!

    I personally love this phone...don't think you'd hate it!

    Oh good! I have always purchased HTC devices since I was on AT&T. Had two HTC tilts but hvent had a HTC android... I will check out some Youtube reviewson the Vivid and on the new device you are speaking of.


    4.5" is a nice size screen. Its doable. I know I cant go back to the tilt-size screens :D

    I came from the inspire 4g, and it has a slightly smaller screen than vivid, but the vivid is great...especially with this update....much faster!!!!

    Besides, then we'd be hanging out in the same forum...it would never be boring!!! :D

    Not yet.Ive decided to wait a few days and see what else comes up with this ROM.I have been reading and there are several versions of these available for download.Such as this one RUU_HOLIDAY_ICS_35_S_Cingular_US_3.26.502.52_Radio_3.02.4740.14_34.22.701040.19L_release_243350_signed.exe - download now for free. File sharing. Software file sharing. Free file hosting. File upload. FileFactory.com

    Its the ROM from this list that was updated recently(yesterday) [ROM]Holiday Shipped ROM Collection - xda-developers
    This isn't the same one i downloaded today at the link you provided.So i guess im still debating lol..

    this also appears to be a factory push...unfortunately the files have the ability to be renamed...i'd have to open it to see, and i just can't investigate right now....kids gotta make it to the bus!!

    This is the thread it came from originally... http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1528824

    Please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to pressure you into anything...You need to be comfortable before you do anything to your phone. Its too much headache/heartache if something bad happens! i just want to make sure that we all have all the same info! The vivid community isn't nearly as active as some others, so we gotta look out for each other!!!

    Not yet, still downloading. Have about 100mb to go so in the next ten minutes. =) Relocked my bootloader, backed up my stuff, and I'm ready to go. I just put ICS on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 last night and can't wait to put it on my Vivid!

    Just finished flashing. My initial impression is...nice! Scrolling between screens is a lot smoother and app launching seems to be a little bit faster. Can't to really mess around with it later! I just wish they would leave the stock android keyboard. I really hate the Sense keyboard.

    Download Gingerbread Keyboard from Market. From the home screen TAP Settings, Tap Language & Keyboard, Tap Gingerbread Keyboard. Once you've completed this, open your stock text messaging app. Tap in the text box. When the keyboard opens, you will see a keyboard icon show up in the drop down bar at the top of your phone. Drag the bar down, Tap Select Input Method, Tap Gingerbread keyboard...

    Should set you up nicely

    Thanks! I'll get that!

    I am getting a little bit of lag between receiving a text message and then receiving a notification sound. Usually a good 8 secs pass from when I receive the sms and then the notification sound. At the same time, my phone is re-installing all my apps so for right now I'm just going to attribute the slowness to the processor being used up by the restoring settings and such.

    once its done downloading and updating...reboot. ICS optimizes every time the Dalvik Cache is wiped...i.e. reboot...

    I forgot to ask how is the security screen set up on this ROM?
    Does it have the face recognition like everyone was saying?
    Also if i install this ROM can i update to AT&T's ROM when its released or will my phone be seen as already updated unless i revert it back to stock first?

    Let me look into the face recognition...haven't found it yet...

    My phone has the "AT&T Software Update" button. As of now, when i tap it, it says "Software Up to Date"

    It should be under your lock screen or security lock settings.
    As far as the update it will say that until at&t releases it prob,But then im not sure what it will say lol.
