Are razr/ razr maxx users really experiencing reception problems after ics.

Sorry I haven't replied earlier as I stated I have had some issues with the razor after the ics update. I just got my new phone yesterday fedex, got it going last night and have done a few things on it this morning battery is lasting very good so far as well as full 4g signal all morning 45 miles to work from the house. the other phone after the update could hardly get signal and battery kept dying constantly I had to keep it on the charger just to keep it on. Not sure what others think but I'm convinced i had the signal and battery problems from the ics update. VZW sent me the razr max with ics already installed and so far its working great.
Now i want to attempt rooting this phone and see what kind of stuff i can do with. It would be good for me to be able to use wifi tethering. I paid for it for a little while and it was nice to have, but didn't like paying for that when i could just use usb cable to connect to laptop and do the same thing for free. Its ridiculous if you ask me. I think I'll try the utility 1.81. Does anyone have a link to that? I have seen 1.8 and read that Matt revised with 1.81, but cant seem to locate that one.
Download an app called battery circle from the play store. It should give you a better perspective since Motorola does their battery statistics in increments of 10.Originally Posted by troy1612
I should also note, that since the conversion to ICS I have run into some battery problems. Initially everything was fine and then my battery started to drain like no tomorrow. I did a FDR and it didn't help the first time (all of my apps automatically reinstalled). So I did another FDR but chose which apps I wanted to reinstall on the second pass. A couple battery conditioning attempts and I'm back to great battery life on my Razr. I believe I had an app that didn't play well with ICS but I couldn't figure out which one it was.
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!
Yup VZW sent me, well I'll say a razr maxx, maybe new... maybe refurb. It came in fedex box and not in a new cell phone box. So my first thought was that it is a refurb and probably is. However, I'll say it looks brand new and running great so i guess who cares.... right. Just flashed the .215 leak and seems about the same. Does have chrome, like others have stated. I've always been a Firefox fan, but i like this too.
I want to root this now and try the eclipse rom. Reading through several other threads right now to learn how. All of this is new to me. Kind of addicting too. How much more can i do...
