    You can back up your apps and take screen shots of your home screens to use as a reference to set them back up the same way. Setting your phone back up after an fdr takes a few hours and well worth it to take advantage of the better optimization that ICS gives us. A few hours time to get the best from your phone is much more satisfying than suffering through old gb bugs.

    I am the first to admit, I resist change. If I like something - T stick with it. So, when ICS hit I had my typical "reaction" yuck Gimme back what I had. Then I shut up and begrudgingly I start to experiment. I messed around with ICS non-stop from yesterday morning (Saturday). My phone had been off the charger since 4:00 pm Friday. I just had to charge it 2:00pm SUNDAY Afternoon. It's already back to 70% in about 1.5 hours on the wall charger.

    I'm pretty amazed. I am really digging a lot of the new features. My advice, Play with it. Give it a chance and see what you think after a couple days.
    IF you are experiencing issues try a FDR and cycle 100-15-100 charging.

    Only because sometimes its not done properly by the software update. Especially going from GB to ICS. I have seen this with different OS versions with different phones for the past 2 years. Many EVO owners had a better experience with Froyo and probably GB after doing factory resets. There are times when its needed for issues. I lost internet completely on my Droid X1 last year, just out the blue.....factory reset fixed it.

    If someone is having issues with their phone after the update.....I would do it just to rule out anything crazy happening during and after the update that might have caused it. I would also do a factory reset as a last resort after trying some other things first.

    I've had ICS on my Transformer for a while and loved it on there so I had high hopes for it on my RAZR. I love it, only complaint I've had is I can't seen to find a way to lock the notification volume with the ringer volume like I could in gingerbread. This is extremely annoying and I hope they fix it (and option to lock or not like before would be awesome!).

    I've been totally unplugged from the outside world for the past several days. No WiFi, cell coverage, etc -- absolutely nothing. Knowing that ICS was about to be rolled out to the masses as I was leaving, I was really looking forward to updating my phone when I got home. Had I known what it would do to my phone, I wish I never would've returned.

    I installed ICS on two devices last night -- both with nearly a full charge before downloading. My wife's Razr had approx 50% battery when we went to bed -- it completely died overnight. Although my Maxx didn't die, it's been draining much much faster than normal.

    We had exceptional battery performance on GB. Now it downright sucks. I haven't had the time to go through all of the posts and possible solutions since I've been back, so I know I've got some reading to do. I don't know if it takes a while for the phone to "settle down" or what, but at this point I can say I'm not thrilled at all.

    Disable the stock txt app and whatever you are using for txt will replace it on the lock screen.
