I get update and download right now
Northern Illinois here
where in northern illinois?
I live in Rockford
I'm in bolingbrook 30 miles west of chicago and still nothing here. did you get the notification? The one that said update was ics ,before you got the update?
yeah I get from notification about ICS like 5 hours ago then I get from OTA Update in 30 mins this is not soak text
The rollout started just before Midnight Eastern (Daylight Savings Time). It will go out in waves, some may get it early, some later, and it doesn't matter geographically, nor does it seem to matter when the phone was purchased. There isn't anybody that can confirm any particular rhyme or reason for who gets it when and who doesn't. You'll get it when you get it. There have been two identical phones, both bought at the same time, and one will get the upgrade, the other will get it days later.
Rest assured you'll eventually get it.
nothing here in ct yet
Got mine in Pittsburgh PA this morning, but my coworker did not. I got a pop up message last night telling me I would be getting it within the next few days and with a link to the web site so that I could familiarize myself with it. When I woke up this morning, I was given the choice to download it now or later.
Got it in the middle of the night. Woke me up with the bright screen. Nor Cal here.
Im in iowa and nothing hear yet..ugggh..hoping soon though razr and i have a love hate going on!
It amazes me how people think geographical location has anything to do with updates.
I beg to differ. Walking out the door at 7:05am and looked at my RAZR. It was already 40% downloading. Pulled into the parking lot at work an hour later in New Haven with the phone booting up to ICS.
Did you receive the notification prior to the download informing you you would be receiving ICS within a week?
looks like we're all gonna get the notification before we get the ics, the question is, are they going to release the batches every third day or every day that is the question
Woke up this morning at 7 am with a notification of the update 15 min later was on my ICS home screen fully booted up. Got a notification last night at 7pm i would be receiving the update this week.
I'm in Northern New Jersey and got the update 8:30 this morning.
I'm not sure how to disable 4g now. Scrolling doesn't seem as smooth.
Last night around 7pm.
Disabling 4G is somewhat of a difficulty, but you can download https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.andirc.lteonfoff&feature=search_result (yes it says Thunderbolt, but works with RAZR), and it will take you to a menu of "Phone info". Scroll down the menu and just before the "Turn off radio" button is a line with a drop-down. It should be on "LTE/CDMA/EvDo/GSM/WCDMA" by default, which is all the radios, including Global (GSM). To change to 3G only, select "CDMA auto (PRL)". To select everything but GSM (including LTE), select "LTE/CDMA/EvDo", then just hit the Back button or Home button on the phone.
Will make a note of this, thanks
point of origin
Boise Idaho - Not that local has anything to do with it... Just in case anyone is curious...
I got the update notification message yesterday afternoon. This morning around 9am MST I received the update notifcation to begin. I am rooted so intended to cancel the download until I knew better how to deal with it, but accidently hit accept and it began the download. DOH... I intended to make a back up of my mileage log before I started, but failed to do so.
Anyway, the download completed and the phone re-booted. Since then, I am stuck on a notificaiton stating "Android is upgrading..." with a line and a spinner (not spinning) and "Starting applications. the phone has been stuck there for ~ an hour (1.25 hours).
Any help would be appreciated. I would like to be able to recover my mileage data from my phone, but if it is gone, then I suppose that is my fault. I am a fairly experienced phone "tweeker" and follow directions pretty well... Usually... LOL
WOW, while I was sitting here typing this, my phone "Woke up" with ICS... I suppose it just takes some time. For those of you who are unaware, that is why you should never begin an upgrade with less than 100% battery.
UPDATE - I was presented with a dialog:
The software update was successful!
Your phone has been upgraded to 6.16.211.en.US version... Yay...
During the update by battery went from 100% to 50%...
