    Well in the DC area, I received the ICS update in the middle of the might last night/this morning. Still trying to decide if I like it, it wont send email, wont get on the internet via the browser, have yet to figure how to copy and paste (not working like before), it will receive emials and texts, the home screen does not rotate like I thought it would and some data was lost during the upgrade, had to reset my hotspot info.. (thats just some of the things)

    Will see.........

    Yeah I think my phone is getting the update right now. It started withour me knowing, bt i assume that it is ICS. Once downloaded ill see if i like it or not. And as for your problems with email and such will wifi work?

    I had both WIFI and Data on, and it would not let me go to a website, I rebooted and am now able to get to a website, but still not send mail.. will probably need to redo settings, I lost all my emails signatures, etc.. kept all my text messages. I think mostly I like it, but just frustrating setting everything back up again..

    Do you have your phone set to auto-update? Are you rooted?

    No I am not rooted, I do have auto updates, but this just auto downloaded and then asked if I wanted to install. I woke in the middle of the night, saw it and said install now.

    Getting more used to things, so far so good... can now browse the web, run my programs, send and receive emails, etc... still need to figure how to copy and paste, but for the most part I think I like the upgrade..

    thanks for the reply! Sounds like it's slowly coming together for you. That's good news! I'm reading about various issues with the update all over the various forums.

    Just unfroze my bloatware and unrooted w/ Voodoo and checked for update. I'm downloading now rather than have this hit me unexpectedly in the middle of my roadtrip monday!

    Yeah It does allow you to chose "install later" but at 0500 hours not much going on and being off today figure it was a good time to do it and set things up, most stayed the same, but some things needed reconfiguring.
    The home screen doew rotate, but only when the keyboard is opened instead of just when you turn the phone, would have liked it to have been with just a turn, but atleast when I open the keyboard it rotates lol.. guess we cant get everything we want lol
    one of the problems I heard was problems with email, luckily whatever issues I had when it first happened resolved and I can send and receive just fine.
    I had to reconfigure HotSpot, havent tried it yet.

    good luck.

    I LOVE it!! I'm sorry you seem to be experiencing bugs. For me, this update appears to have fixed issues I was seeing coming from a D3 to a D4 like Facebook contacts and normal contacts not syncing, etc. I am beyond thrilled with ICS for my D4.

    I updated and kept root. Go me! :D So far I've managed to disable a good amount of bloatware without titanium backup. Nice improvement with ICS! Disabled stock SMS and set Handcent as default with no issues. Next task, getting rid of Vehicle Home in favor of Car Home Ultra.

    Cheers!
