    I had one of the managers from Best Buy Mobile stop in my store, and and I got to talk to him about the "leaked" internal memo. He said it's true he read it a few days ago. It's going to be rolled out the 4th and the Rezound starting on the 6th. There were other phones said to be rolling out "soon" it doesn't clarify if it's a full fledged update of just soak test, and the full manager memo is said to have included tech contacts for BBYM, and Verizon and Motorola. So I am assuming this is not an April Fool's joke, but I am guessing that Motorola gave an over exaggerated estimate so people would be glad to get it sooner then Big Red forced it out even earlier.

    No, simply installing a system update won't do a factory reset of your phone. You should be able to install it without erasing any of your information, apps, or files from the phone. The updates are designed to not have to do a reset. However, many people find that doing a factory reset after installing the update helps to cut down on any potential problems or conflicts from updating the OS (and generally it will make the phone run smoother). But you don't have to do a factory reset.

    Yes I agree with you. I went through an upgrade on my Asus TF101 to ICS. Every piece of data and applications stayed with no issues.

    What's the best way to Back up the original operating system that we are running now just in case ics is a bust and we need to go back?

    My experience with my tablets upgrade to ICE any issues that occurred after the upgrade were related to applications that I had previously on my phone not being compatible with ICS. The best way to avoid that is to not automatically load all of your applications but to load them back one at a time and do some testing with them to make sure they have not had any negative effect on your system.

    Did you erase all of your apps when you upgraded or did the upgrade erase them automatically?

    The update will not erase all of your apps.

    Some one at the site the leak was posted says it does with an example. And if some don't already know the thread with the leak was locked.

    I agree with that decision....folks need to be patient and wait for the more knowledge folks make it easier, safer to install.

    In my particular case I let the update just do its thing and after it finished rebooting all of my apps plus data were still present. Most of my apps are business in nature so none gave me any issues. In addition my TF101 has not had any of the issues others hve reports. The solution in most cases when issues did arise was to remove all of the applications and load them back one at a time to find the offending app.
