    If your having issues with your bionic, you should enjoy this update. And ics is on its way. Would you want ics if you kept having data drops? I wouldn't. But I suppose that's just me? Idk....

    Enter current phone model here? Go ahead and jump ship, you're not swift enough to appreciate moto. Most physically bombproof builds since the dawn of phones, interactive with the developer and user communities to the extent the carriers let them be, new models often enough keep me interested, yet fairly timeless (as gadgets go). A tweaked up D1 is still a respectable phone. What other phones as old can say the same thing?

    Better to have a stable build of GB that works for everyone, than a brand new OS that likely will introduce new bugs; and probably isn't ready for the Moto devices yet. FWIW the HTC Rezound isn't in HTC's first wave of ICS releases, and it's a recent phone too.

    I know that you probably think "hey google just released source for ICS, it should be available to me the next day" but that is not how it works. Google releases source for their Nexus build and everyone builds off that base. Since the Bionic is not a google nexus, all hardware drivers need to be rewritten for the differences in hardware.
