    I believe if you go into Settings> Apps> Updater (should appear in "ALL") and disable that application/force stop/clear data . Those reminders should be gone. Will need to unfreeze if ever decide to go to JB.

    What issues are there with JB? I'm running it and have found it to be far superior to any Android version yet...

    Pretty sure you need to be rooted to freeze the updater apk. Its usually a system file which like I said requires root.

    If there was only a way that I could repeat this on 4.0.4, this would be a good answer for the OP's request.

    Jelly Bean update

    My wife updated her new Razr HD which she got last night with Jelly Bean. She saw the update message and said OK. Now she no longer has Speed Dialing on her phone. Cust support said that's what happens with the update. Hopefully there will be a fix later.

    In the mean time you can go back to ICS and freeze the updater if you wish.

    If you plug in via MTP mode your phone will show up as a device. Click it and you can see internal and external cards. If the device doesn't show up make sure you have the drivers installed.

    According to Motorola they removed the speed dial feature because nobody used it........
    Yea, I used it. No plans to bring it back.

    OK, I have been connecting via MTP mode and do not see SD following JB update, did before. Is there a new driver for phone or PC that needs to be downloaded? Did I mention that the phone does not see the SD also.

    Why don't people want to update? JB is better than ICS. I mean I guess from the standpoint of bugs there's that, but in general JB with Project Butter should make it a better all around experience. Plus Google Now, but I know some may not like it (still you don't have to use it if you don't want).

    Since they removed BOTH Mass Storage modes in JB. I now have to use swiFTP or other FTP hosting apps. Then upload or download to the device. Works great. But it does require a wifi router. I'd like to find one that has AdHoc but have yet to. Only reason I kept JB and didn't revert back is because people say the camera was updated in the JB update.
