    Has anyone noticed any changes in the performance of your Maxx since the OTA update? My 4G speed here at work is much better now. At first I was only getting 2 bars and this morning I have 4 bars. I still us 3G here at work though.

    I noticed the icon for text messing has changed. Icons have changed in the Setting menu also. Looking forward to ICS!

    I noticed the text message icon, several annoying VCAST apps loaded on the phone and my 4g is having some issues now. so far for me it is worthless and making life miserable. :mad:

    oh ya, it is asking me to log on to wifi so it can auto upload all of my photos to somewhere, cant figure out how to stop it from asking

    it looks like it is motocast trying to auto sync. it is a new feature that was updated during the install. now i just gotta figure out shutting it off.:icon_ lala:

    For what ever reason, my 4g background sync was disabled and that is why 4g was just sitting there waiting to work. 4g seems to be back to normal now
