    I'm highly aggregated with ICS.
    Far fewer features:
    Adding Widgets is no longer possible with long press on screen
    Can't hide apps
    Handcent doesn't sync contact pics since update
    Data app doesn't update by itself
    New keyboard is gaebaage and dkssnt auto correct correctly
    *ironically enough*
    Overall phone seems slower amd gets hot...can barely touch the screen now.

    I wish there was a uninstall update for the os...

    Try a factory reset. It may do wonders.

    Well the data app is a Verizon thing...not ICS. They decided to not have it auto refresh anymore.

    You cant hide apps...but you can disable them. I see that as a trade off. Moto did leave the app drawer categories in place....so you can still do that.

    Yea...the adding widgets thing...some ppl either get used to the change or just dont like it. Some newer phones might still let you do it the old way. Moto ...to their credit....did stay close to stock ICS than any other UI so far.

    The best way I can describe it...is when desktop OS's get upgraded. I still run XP as my main OS with Vista installed in a dual boot setup and another PC with Win 7.

    Win 7 is supposed so much better....yet I just dont have the desire to use it alot or make it my main OS. Vista actually works fine for me after service paks and fixes. I also got Vista 64bit...that might have made a difference.

    Bottom line....some ppl look forward to something new, different. Some ppl are happy as is. Sometimes with something new....things are changed, things break. If I had a choice to have Jelly Bean or ICS....I would say Jelly Bean might be more of a bigger deal. Each version of Android has gotten smoother. Moto just did such a good job with GB on the RAZR...I think some ppl will be fine without ICS.

    Downloaded the update and I'm no longer able to get my audio to work, whether for music, videos, or incoming calls and notifications. Even did a factory reset with no success. Very frustrated.

    Actually it kind of makes sense to add apps through the app drawer and not a long press on the screen. Think of the steps involved.

    Old Method: Go to screen you want to add app to - Long press on screen - Wait for popup of different actions to choose from - choose add app or widget - scroll through special screen to find app or widget that you want to add.

    New Method: Go to screen you want to add app to - Open app drawer - Find widget or app you want to add to screen - long press on app or widget and add to screen

    Benefits of new method: You can see the widgets previewed before selecting one, and the screen to choose apps from is the same app drawer you are used to.

    Yeah, I know it is annoying to learn a new method of doing something, but when the method actually makes sense it is not bad.

    You know what, I apologize. I wasn't even thinking about the fact that this actually is a global phone. I guess I'm too used to Verizon phones only being on Verizon. I'll re-stick this for you guys. Sorry about that and thanks for reminding me.

    Just purchased my Droid Razr Maxx at COSTCO, USA and the tech updated the OS to 4.0.4. Seems to be working great. Just a lot to learn in a short time.

    Still waiting for ICS.. I have a LATAM phone.. I hear that LATAM phones will get their update at the end of August... This delay is ridiculous.. Some phone are already out with Jelly bean, and we are still on Gingerbread..

    Hi there! I got ICS about 2-3 weeks ago. I hate it. Everything was fine until I updated it. At first I didn't think it was too bad, but now, everything just goes wrong. When I text, compose and email, or anything that involves typing- it freezes up for a few seconds and no words appear. And then suddenly - there's the text.

    Today, for no reason, it hung up on me while I was on the phone.

    Also, I use my bookmarks widget on the screen. Every so often, the widget vanishes but you see the internet icon where your bookmarks would be. Even the formatable outline is still there as if the bookmarks are still on the screen, but the little bookmark boxes I have - not visible. So what do I have to do? Go back to the widget area and put it back on the screen again.

    I constantly clear the cache in my apps, figuring that may have something to do with it. Nope. My battery life (I have the Razr Maxx, BTW) is supposed to outlast every phone, meanwhile I notice that the battery life is actually not as good as it was when I first got my phone!

    Oh yeah, and lastly... I click on an app and it lags when opening.

    Any ideas/suggestions? And please, if you can, refrain from the overuse of geek talk lol. I can only understand so much before my brain goes "ERRRR???" lol

    Have you tried doing a Factory Data Reset?

    I was really hoping to avoid doing that...

    If you've got (or can get) Titanium Backup it's...well, it's not very quick, but it's fairly painless.

    Unfortunately factory data resets are sometimes necessary following major updates. While not desirable it often resolves issues similar to the ones you are encountering...

    It is ALWAYS recommended that you do a cache and factory data reset after a major OS update. Will take care of most problems people have.

    ICS update release GSM EUR GB, today upgraded to ICS with an OTA update. UK mobile O2.

    noted many peeps mention programs no longer working or acting funny. My first glance for uk launch shows a new app auto install named 7digital. and the removal of the annoying need for speed app auto installed on the last update. DID however notice 1 issue. messgae saying adobe flash no longer supported (as is well documented) but this meant that during the OTA update it is removed. So had to re install from play site?? could this be the issue with some listed problems?

    Hi there. I've got a rooted Razr. (Clockwork Mod Recovery v5.0.2.5) I bought the phone off ebay and so have no clue how it was rooted. I can't update to ICS with the OTA Update as it keeps failing. What is my best option if I'm not bothered about preserving the root but want ICS? And is it newbie proof? Current software is 651.167.26.XT910.Retail.en.Eu MANY THANKS to anyone who can give me some help.
