    Wondering if those with problems after installing ICS are mostly those that did not do an fdr, so doing a little survey. Chose one of the scenarios below.

    1) Did an fdr before installing ICS and have minimal or no problems that a simple fix will solve.
    2) Did an fdr after installing ICS and have minimal or no problems that a simple fix will solve.
    3) Did an fdr before installing ICS and have horrible battery life and/or many problems.
    4) Did an fdr after installing ICS and have horrible battery life and/or many problems.
    5) Did not do an fdr and have minimal or no problems that a simple fix will solve.
    6) Did not do an fdr and have horrible battery life and/or many problems.

    6. I'm not having any problems other than battery life, but that is somewhat inconclusive because I've been using the thing so much. RAZR MAXX.

    Add: I have wondered if I should try a Factory Data Reset.

    Me too matty, #1. Battery life is better and all I did was take it off global and put it on lte/Cdma (Always had it on 3g only before). No problems except for a few minor quirks and some gb features I miss but a heck of a lot more ICS features I love.

    Since I live in a concrete bunker, I only get 3G inside. I have to go outside on my porch to get a 4G signal. My front door is my 3G/4G toggle switch LOL :biggrin:

    Now, I'm curious... do tell. Is it global mode, smart actions, task manager, lack of, multi-tasking?? I have done nothing to optimize battery except take it off global and I manual sync. I don't even turn off data when not in use.

    1 and 2. Did a FDR this morning because things just seemed a bit out of whack. We'll see what happens a few days from now...

    I did #5 for a week. I saw battery life was about the same to slightly worse.

    Did a FDR yesterday, got everything back to normal, all my smart actions in order, and today got just over 12 hours of "typical" 4G use. I am going to see how the rest this week goes, but so far I'm really happy.

    #6 for me. I can easily do a factory reset and from what I've been reading it should fix all the issues I've been having but I feel I shouldn't have to go through the trouble in the first place. Sure, I'll be waiting months for an update that probably won't come or even fix anything but I'm willing to be purposely stubborn to make a point.

    #4 for me. Been off global for a few days, FDR yesterday, and not back up to GB battery performance yet. :(
