    Very true, but that's the text app he prefers. If it were only that app that continually crashes, I'd encourage him to use a different one, but multiple apps that offer chat are crashing -- along with the phone continually losing sight of the SD card AND calls not coming through. The phone must have been built on a Friday

    Or a Monday. Hopefully Verizon can help. Hopefully they give him a replacement. Mine has been, and still is, buttery smooth.

    Yep, it's definitely a Monday phone....
    Glad yours is good. Fingers crossed they switch his out.

    Okay, I did it. I ordered my Z4. My ZForce totally crashed with a bright yellow triangle and exclamation point on the screen last night. That was my final straw. I did get it back up and running, but I'm done (waving white flag).
    I'll be picking it up tonight, but won't have too much time to play with it until next week -- unless tomorrow is a very sloooow day at work.
    Fingers crossed I get a good one. (Son didn't make it to Verizon last night, so we'll see what happens with his funky problems tonight when he goes.)

    My only initial advice is this: if you bought from Verizon and are picking up in a store, don't let them turn it on and activate it. If you know enough about setting up a phone (which you do), tell them no thanks you'll set it up yourself. They can give you a 1-800 number to call if the new phone / SIM don't activate instantly. When they activate for you they blow by all the important on-screen prompts for things that are handy to setup right away (like Assistant hands free, etc ). I hate how they just blast past all that stuff just to get to the "your phone number is..... and is now activated..." screen. There are things that Google will prompt you to do that make things easier later. If they swipe it away, the user has to try and find those things later.

    Sorry, that's my rant for the day.

    What great advice! Thank you!!!! I hadn't thought about the whole activation thing. I'll definitely do it myself. Thanks again!

    Okay, a little late to this party, but......
    I'm able to change the shape, but what I'm not crazy about is:
    My little icons have changed shape, but if I have them clustered in group icons, those group shapes stay round. The little icons within the group icon have changed their shape, but.... Kinda weird and I'm wondering why they didn't go the extra step and make those change shape, as well. Weird....

    I had not really noticed that, but you are correct. The folders retain their default circular shape regardless of the app icon shape. I only have two folders of icons and had not noticed that before now.

    It's nothing in the grand scheme of things, but a little annoying. This may be the phone I actually hit @PereDroid up for assistance in customizing my icons. I've been wanting to do it for years, but ...

    Just powered up my old phone to compare. It appears the backgrounds for the "folders" is dark on my Z and very light -- almost white, on my Z4. I'm assuming there's a setting for that....
