    I have a few questions.

    1) Is there a way to get rid of the keyboard notification when the keyboard is open? I have researched this and havent seen a clear cut answer. Seems like its there in case you lock your phone and are typing something and forget that you are typing and then if you see if it will remind you that you were typing.

    2) I read somewhere that there is a app you can get to toggle 3g and 4g...i think it was one for the thunderbolt that somebody mentioned work for the razr ics...is this true?

    3) Battery life tips? I usually have background sync off when not at home, and when i am at home on wifi i have data disabled and i always have my screen on the lowest setting and i kill the apps after im done with them...my battery life is still horrible. It was alot better on gingerbread. So if anybody has any helpful tips for this it would be much appreciated

    1) and 2) I can't help you with ... I don't know. But 3) as far as your battery life, I started this thread about MY battery life, and it's things that I did on MY phone ... it may or may not be for you or others, but I am getting well over 24 hours on a single charge on my Razr Maxx with the things I did. Might help you too ... depends how you use your phone.

    Battery life on ICS ... MY Experience.
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??

    I'll tackle the first two for you:

    1) Nope. And it's there so that you can easily switch keyboards if you want to.

    2) LTE OnOFF - This is the app you're referring to. Yes, it works on the RAZR.

    1. Dont know about that. One time it went away...now I cant get rid of it...lol. Dont remember if I did anything special or just never paid that much attention to it.

    2. LTE On/Off for the Thunderbolt. Yes it works.

    3. I have took my phone of Global, put it on LTE/CDMA and disabled all location services. So far I think my battery life has gotten better. Even tho I'm in a weak reception area....I may try to do a battery life test to see something. I know before ICS I could average 12-15 hours on my regular RAZR. I have a feeling Global is draining the battery. I think all the phones defaulted to Global after the update. And just try some charging cycles....get the RAZR with ICS to learn the battery again.

    1) I found a way to "silence" the keyboard notification. Go to Apps from the Settings menu. Then tab all the way to the right to "All" ("Downloaded" --> "Internal storage" --> etc.). Click input methods/apps (i.e. Go keyboard, Motorla Input, etc) that you do not want to use, and then click Disable. I can't remember if I had to restart my phone for it to take effect. For my Razr, I kept Google Voice and the Moto keyboard, and disabled Go and Swype. Hope this helps!

    2) There is an app called "LTE OnOff-HTC thunderbolt" that works flawlessly and brings you to the page where you can select CDMA (auto) or LG/CDMA/EVo. As far as a simple toggle widget, I'm not sure there is one out yet.

    3) Minimize GPS, LTE, screen brightness, yada yada yada. Or scan Ebay for a busted Maxx and swap the batteries? I have the Maxx and the battery life is astounding for a 4G smartphone, granted I have it on 3G all the time. I only use 4G when I know I'll have good signal. I'm more worried about cracking the screen than battery.

Now that ICS is out, I get my phone, read the tips and advice, and try it on my phone. It works like a tutorial and I don't have to ask a million questions. I think that by the time I have read this sub thread, I will be dangerously proficient with Android ICS!!

    Can anyone tell me how to keep my rarz from going to sleep in the car dock? Never had an issue until I updated today. Can't find anything in the settings for the phone or the dock...the best I can find is to keep it awake for 10 minutes of inactivity.

    I've always used the setting in developer tools to keep screen on while plugged in. You can always just hit your power button if you want the screen to turn off while plugged in. Menu,System Settings, Developer Options, Stay Awake. Hopefully it will stay awake even if you are at 100%, not charging and plugged in. My older phones used to. I'll have to try on my RAZR MAXX.
