Ha ha ha!
No. They aren't. The don't in anyway distribute updates on a regional basis.
Actually they want to AVOID doing that. The choke point for the network is going from the individual tower to the phone. If they pushed the update out to every razr in the area at once, they'd saturate the tower and bandwidth would slow to a crawl. They want to push the update to as wide an area as possible, so they can update a large number of phones without any one tower being overused.
They generally push updates out based on serial number or MEID.
How did you get past this? I've been sitting on this screen for 10 minutes or so at this point.
Download and install went smooth at around 30 minutes. So far I'm in love with it! Feels like a new phone. Compared to my nexus I like moto's take on it better...
I agree. Moto Blur (or what is left of it) actually works well and is a positive with ICS.
I read somewhere yesterday it would be available for everyone today if you checked for updates on your phone. I did that as soon as I woke up this morning and there it was. 30 minutes later it was done upgrading and I was on my way! Love it so far.
Anyone know how to change the 4 icons on the lock screen with ics??? I use handcent. I don't want the stock text app to be one of them and it is now with the update..
I've got ICS!!!
Yay, I finally get to post in this thread! First thing I'm doing is updating my apps and disabling the bloat.
Ok I got it all done this morning. Took a while, but it was the biggest OTA I've ever had. Now to figure out how to change the apps available from the lock screen....
Ok....ICS is working fine, Email working, everything is smooth, fast, etc. NOW......can I change the unlock feature? make it slide? Like it was?
AND WTF is with the analog clock??? I need a digital one......NOW, I have to count those silly hash marks on the sides to figure out the time......I hate math.
I got the download. So I did and now when I got to install it it says it failed. So I am downloading it again cause I cant find the download. Should I save it for later so I will have it? I didnt do that before I just went into installing it now? What to do??
I just waited. I think after about 15 minutes I just rebooted the phone
YAY..I finally got it this morning. Was out last night, came home about 12:30 and checked the update, nothing. Charged my phone overnight and checked it at about 8:00 this morning and there it was!
Once question I have..How do I remove my facebook contacts from my contacts? I don't want my entire friends in facebook in my contacts.
Open the facebook app, go to settings. On the the bottom, below "other settings", it says "Sync Contacts". You can choose "sync all", "sync with existing contacts", and "don't sync". At first I synced with existing, but didn't like it, so I went back and chose "remove all facebook data".
I just check this morning about 8:30 and it was there, install took about 30 mins and so far it is pretty sweet, like some one else posted its like having a new phone.
I'm new here, so forgive me if this should go somewhere else, but is anybody running a non-stock launcher? I tried Nova, and though it's for ICS it doesn't seem to be working properly on Razr Maxx with ICS. Also, Beautiful Widgets doesn't seem to be supported. I used GoLauncher prior to the upgrade, but I got rid of it in prep for ICS and don't want to reinstall it and all the widgets if it's not going to work. Thanks!
got ICS this morning, sometime after midnight. Now I need to figure out what to do with it.. LOL
I've got it
Something I have noticed though.. swype got an update with it, and its different, not a fan of it too much now when I make a mistake it takes much longer for me to correct it, plus its (in my opinion) an ugly color scheme vs what it was.
Is it worth rooting to get rid of "spam" apps? I counted 16 I want gone
And how do I get my contact picture back? I have myself as a contact and that always worked in the past, but now its an empty picture when I send texts
Go launcher works great with ics, never removed when I got the soak, never had an issue. Actually haven't seen the stock ics yet because I like go launcher...lol
I got ICS this morning! However now my phone keeps locking up so I'm going to have to do a factory reset. How should I go about backing up all my stuff before hand?
If you can root and titanium backup is what i use
When i logged in to google + app my picture popped back up
Thanks....I did figure it out!
ICS broke my phone lol. It is amazingly slow and most apps do not even open, just goes to a black screen and I either get a 'not responding' pop or it just reboots.
And I notice the keyboard is smaller, which sucks for me and my stubs.
