    Let's try swinging this one back on topic. I personally love the "quick" commands in the ICS browser. I was hooked on chrome for a while but the rendering would flake on me every so often so I switched back to the stock ICS browser(not the Sense ICS browser) and I love it.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    Mobile hotspot instant on/off

    1) Long press home screen

    2) select widget

    3) select mobile hotspot

    The widget will turn it on/off without having to go through the steps the other way.

    This may be known already.I found it by accident.

    Does Verizon charge for this? Can they even tell you are doing it?

    I have used the wireless hotspot feature off and on over the last year, never abused it but certainly had a few months in the 5GB range mostly from hotspot use. Never heard from Verizon and I do not pay for this feature.

    Let's hang this one up right here. There's a difference between Mobile HotSpot(MHS) and wireless tethering(requires root). MHS is a paid service via Verizon, wireless tethering not so much. Verizon knows when you're using MHS because it's a service that verifies with their servers that you have the necessary package. Wireless tether reconfigures your wireless driver to accept incoming requests and essentially turns your phone into a mobile router. I just wanted to to put this out there for those that don't understand and may possibly think that MHS is a free service.

    Ah, I missed that distinction and assumed wireless tether. My bad. good info for all.

    I don't think it's that great. I'm still using Smart Keyboard.

    I too am still using SwiftKey. Didn't give the ICS keyboard much of a shot though, just love SwiftKey.
