This makes me almost get a flash itch
BB, if you're happy on ICS, STAY THERE.
I have to warn you: bugs and all, once you experience the raw power and exhilaration of Jelly Bean, you will not go back. It's just that awesome.
I'm happy but all the talk of JB makes me feel a bit left out. My main things that MUST work are SMS/MMS, tether, tibu, light flow. And if I can get email inverted it'd be a huge bonus. Maybe I'll download the files today and contemplate flashing during my 4 hour layover tomorrow.
With all four lines, even contemplating the heaviest data use months for each line, 8 GB would be more than enough for us, so losing unlimited wouldn't be THAT huge of a deal (although it does chap my a$$ that VZW has done away with it.) And, if I'm honest with myself...I like new phones, and since our upgrades are spaced apart nicely, I am able to get the newest phone about every 6-8 months or so.
My husband's line is the one with the upgrade - he currently has unlimited data, which he would lose with the upgrade. My daughter only has the 2 GB plan now. So you're saying I would only lose unlimited on my husband's line? How would I have the share everything on 2 lines, and still have unlimited on 2? That would be great...I was just under the impression that if you upgrade any phone in your family plan, your entire plan would switch to the Share Everything plan.
And this phone isn't even that old. It's my old one, but it had been replaced once (under warranty) less than a year ago. It doesn't want to charge, and everytime she plugs it in, she ends up having to do a battery pull to make it charge.
Nope, Verizon is not forcing any existing customers onto the new plans. If you use your husband's line upgrade, his line will revert to the 2GB tiered plan. But you will still maintain unlimited on the two lines that weren't upgraded. Share everything is an all or nothing proposition, but you can choose the nothing aspect, and continue with your existing plan, minus unlimited on any lines using an upgrade
Thank you Pup! Your D2 was in better shape than mine when I gave it to my daughter and is in much much better shape than it is now. (I already bought her a Seidio case that will hopefully protect it better.) She is thrilled and asked me to enthusiastically thank you for her.
Great, tell her she is more than welcome.
When tether/hotspot is being used is it interrupted when you receive a call or text? I'm assuming yes, but looking for a definite answer.
Not interrupted, but it slows WAAAAY down when on a call. Sometimes the internet will give up and give you an error, sometimes not.
Haven't seen any hiccups with just texting.
Jelly Bean has a Safe Mode.

Since the phone cannot do simultaneous data / voice on 3G then yes it will cut out, but if you have 4G then it works perfectly fine since they are going over two different networks.
I screwed up loading the picture on my earlier post. Her settings, SD card and battery are now in their shiny new home. Thanks again Pup!
Starting the day off by flashing ICS to my moms Galaxy note. Took about 5 min for Kies to download this morning. Then the drivers, which, I already had installed for the nexus. Can't wait to see the note with ICS.
This is odd. Never used kies before and its very strange to flash something with out using CWM or an OTA :afraid:
Guess I have to remove it from my Device list now.
You can update yours with a retired one and a crash test dummy.:rofl:
Any of this dialog in this thread sound familiar to anyone?? lol
Gamestop Nexus 7 confirmed in stock - xda-developers
For all you detail-oriented Watering Hole denizens.
Find the cat. He's there.
Think we will get any distraught Gamestop employees begging people to bring back their N7 or they will get fired?
Found it! Took a few minutes, but then it pops right out at you.
Wow. Slow night. Or is it the end of the world and I'm the only one left?
Probably everyone is busy playing with Jelly Bean flashed on their phones?
I appreciate WugFresh for making the whole process of unlocking and rooting so easy. It was so easy that I rooted my Nexus and flashed Bugless Beast 4.1.1 in an hour before going to work.
Sure wish google would send me that shipping email for my GNex :-(
Vegas for 5 days!
Speaks for itself.

Jelly Belly is now updated to 3.3
And I noticed that leadkernel has stable JB. I'm not sure if that has been available or if it just happend?
Welcome back to the GNex watering hole
And welcome to you for the first time!
Morning all! Feeling a little better about the work situation this morning, the folks who were frustrating me changed their tune a little, so I feel like we are actually working towards a resolution now
So interesting take on the Developer edition SGS3 from Droid-Life, which I didn't think about. (link here: http://www.droid-life.com/2012/07/11/a-few-thoughts-on-a-galaxy-s3-developer-edition-for-verizon-opinion/)
If the developers for the GS3 on Verizon go for this, unless they can figure out how to unlock the encrypted one, the locked bootloader phones will not get nearly the support that they would have gotten if the developer edition didn't exist. In fact, I think releasing a developer edition will end up causing more problems, because you can know there will be plenty of ignorant people who don't read the instructions and try to flash developer edition ROMs and other stuff onto their locked phone.
Although I see a possible silver lining. If someone wanted to take the encrypted bootloader to the FCC and propose its a violation of Block C, I can REALLY start to see that argument being successful. 1. No other carrier has done it. 2. Verizon has a seperate version which is un-encrypted. 3. Verizon has launched other phones recently (GNex) with un-encrypted bootloaders which were subject to the normal sales procedure (ie offered under subsidized pricing from VZW stores.
Verizon's argument to the necessity of the encrypted bootloader gets shot down with those three points IMO. I hope someone with more knowledge of the relevant regulations goes for it...
