    I tried updating, but it bricked my phone. I wonder if it was the google now I had installed. I was rooted, but I saw people say that wasn't a problem.

    Screen sensitivity is horrible, battery seems the same, and radio no different. Its just a last update so lg can be done with the lucid, which retires on the 15th from Verizon

    An issue I and my brother who has the same device have run across is this. The quick reply or message popup system has stopped working entirely. I still get notifications, it just won't popup anymore. I've tried disabling and enabling the option and restarting the phone, but I've had no luck. Has anyone else run into this problem? If so, is the upgrade responsible and do you have any solutions?

    Yeah just noticed that on mine as well. Haven't figured out why yet or how to fix it yet.

    Neither have I. I contacted LG by email. And got the following reply:

    So darn. I seem to have replaced the feature with few problems, with the wonderful app: SMS Popup.

    Huh, I wouldn't expect it to mess with other apps as well. It works fine with sms popup.

    If anyone still cares, I recently did a software reset on the phone and was pleasantly surprised to see the popup message system working again.
