Ace....did you post a link on another thread on how to back up photo, apps, music and such before doing a factory reset? If so, I can't find it. If not, my bad.
It's a pain to factory reset and all but in the end it's worth it.
I didn't even have any problems with my ics update and I went ahead and did a factory reset anyway.
Several people have noted pics don't come across in Go SMS or other messaging apps, I don't have any of these so I can't speak to that issue but Google might be your friend here.[/QUOTE]
I can confirm that my gosms contact pics are totally fine after ICS OTA. I don't use FB so I cannot comment on that, sorry. I would advise an app called "My Backup" from the app store, it backed up all my stuff pretty well. I am on the VW extended 2750 battery and I can tell you at first I noticed no difference, but I am confident that it is clearly getting better and better for me than it ever was on GB. I am noticing none of the bugs you guys seem to be dealing with (very thankful) and wish you the very best getting back to happy. I am very happy with ICS so far and I'm sure the peeps on these forums can assist in getting straightened out.
ok, I decided to see how God awful this battery problem is. I am stock rooted ics. I switched from nova launcher back to the stock sense launcher. nova is still installed, but not being used. I put in my Verizon extended battery and cover. I charged up the battery, left the phone on WiFi, and then went to bed last night.
I woke up, and checked the phone. After nine hours the battery is at 87%.
Now I turned off WiFi, and am using 4G with the signal showing only one bar. This should simulate someone going to work. I will be using opera web browser and playing games like angry birds, hearts, and backGammon.
I'll see how many hours I can go with heavy use in a one to two bar 4G signal area on a extended battery at 87%.
