Since Sprint is launching the Note 2 on the 25th of October, does anyone think that BestBuy will be getting it the same day or week? I want to utilize their $50 gift if you upgrade through them.

GS3 and HD Maxx...I hate both of you.

In some good news for Bionic owners such as myself, the OTA for ICS started today. If and when you do update, it is recommended to download the OTA and then do a Factory Reset to start as a clean slate. ICS is very different from GB, so this is definitely a good idea to do.

the battery on this RazrHD Maxx is insane. I've used the phone heavily all damn day from 9am to 3am, and i still have over 60% battery life left.

Now that the Lumia 920 is $600 off-contract, I'm seriously considering getting one.

But maybe I should hold off for this beauty:

Sweet! That means I should be getting it today. I'll have to check it out when I get home.

I think the last check I did was around 8pm last night, so I'm hoping it's out. On our way to JB (lol)!

There's a workaround for it.

Yes, but the workaround is more of a hassle. They have stated that JB will come out for this phone, so once those builds start leaking, I can enjoy it.

HTC has been much worse than Motorola with letting people know what's going on. My wife has the TBolt, and there is still no word on when she'll be able to receive ICS. At least Motorola admitted they screwed up and gave a new timeline.

HTC has been very quiet about ICS and JB updates.

Just make sure wifi is off and it's on the charger.

Tried downloading it three times, and it failed every time after going through the actual install process. I've tried over 4G, 3G, and then over WiFi...still nothing. I'm doing a FDR (I was planning on doing that anyway when the OTA installed), so we'll see how that goes.

Otherwise, I'll just have to download it from my laptop, and push it to my phone from the SD card.

I need to figure out if I have to defrost my apps and unroot to get the ICS update for my Bionic.

Unroot, no you don't need to. You do need to unfreeze apps though. There is also an issue with updating due to Bootstrap/Safestrap, so you'll need to follow these directions.

http://forums.androidcentral.com/dro...bootstrap.html

This has worked for a lot of people, but it's not working for me. I never deleted or froze any bloatware either, so I don't know what the problem could be. I even downloaded the zip and it's still not working. I went back to my original backup, and nothing. I plan on taking it in tomorrow and just exchanging the phone for another Bionic.

I was on the phone with Verizon tech support when I was trying to get mine to update. I was about to do a factory reset on it when it just started updating. Good luck, dude.
