    Yes, from your home screen click: settings > manage applications. At the top of the page click the "media area" tab. Scroll down the list and make sure NOTHING is checked. Any that are, click and then "move to phone". Problem solved.

    When you install a new app, do this again to make sure it didn't auto install to the media area. Apps that are designed to "install to SD" will automatically go to the media area and need to be moved to the Bionic's app storage area. (the DroidForums app does this)

    I went back to the store today and swapped out my 11 day old Bionic for a new one to see if it was any better (connectivity issues). So far (10 hours) it appears to be fairing better at this point. I just hope the fix, when it comes makes the battery life a little better.

    I'm on my 3RD Bionic.....

    First one refused to connect to 4G network the day after I bought it...
    Second one refused to recognize any sort of headphones plugged into them...
    Third one... Well... let's hope this one doesn't flake out on me..

    I hope 3rd one is a charm!! If I don't have luck with this 2nd one I might get something else. I Just like the Bionic but want it to work! I hear about the "update" but Verizon reps tell me they never know if any updates will come. I don't know why some reps seem to know and others don't. PLUS if I buy and pay for a new phone I want it to work great!!

    So i got replacement Bionic yesterday! So far im experiencing a large improvement in 4G signal....also when i went to my basement i noticed it toggled to 3G on its own...first bionic i had never toggled on its own. I wonder if i did indeed just have a bad sim card first time? Only time will tell

    no offense but waiting another 60 days for the update is ridiculous

    I hope that is true, and that they did not just screw you out of your 14 day return limit.

    that sucks dude ...i went for the droid 3 instead of the bionic because my area isnt even close to getting 4g ...and i havnt had a single problem with my phone...i bought the extended battery and i get about 15 to 25 hours out of it depending on if i go on youtube or not ...i think droid 3 is the way to go
