    No on the NFC, apparently no chip installed.

    The Google bar is not a fixture on our screen, can be removed and only shows on one screen (unless you put multiple)

    JB on the Razr is mostly improvements to the notification curtain, faster phone all around and Google Now, some other minor changes and updates, but nothing else major that I can think of

    Susie, you can't compare JB on your phone like the one on your husbands. Even though they would be the same version technically your husbands version is gonna be different then yours. Your concerns with the Google search is not a concern, it is only one one page on your version, not all like your husbands phone. No on NFC since your phone never had the option as far as hardware to begin with. JB does not turn it on for it is not there on your phone. I know these issues for a fact since I still have my Maxx with JB on it and my Maxx HD which is different.

    Good to know but still not accepting the upgrade unless it sneaks on my phone itself. If that is the case then I will root my phone which I have avoided doing since I have owned a smart phone. So far I have delayed the upgrade 3x. I have always been excited about the newest upgrades up until now.

    You could always flash to version 215 (ics) as that takes you to a unreleased version of ics but takes you off of the upgrade path. No root required. There are instructions in this forum just don't have the link. Supposed to be a better version of ics, and it seemed a little better to me when I had it.

    I am 95% sure it won't ask to update. Also go into settings-->more-->mobile networks-->network mode and change to LTE/CDMA..it is probably set to global. Assuming you are only using in US..no need to set to global.

    No problem Susie2057! What's you battery life like and are you on the maxx or reg RAZR. I always recommend a battery calibration to everyone especially if they update to a new version.

    I have the razr maxx. I haven't noticed any change in my battery life to be honest. What is battery calibration?

    A lot of people have been having battery issues after updates where it doesn't last as long. When I hear this, I usually recommend a battery calibration or recalibration. Use phone down to battery warning..(dont drain battery completely). Power off phone completely and charge will off using original charger that came with the phone..(Best to do this overnight). Use the phone again until low battery warning comes on and again power off phone and charge while off. After that use and charge as normal. No need to shut off. Repeat process once a month or when battery seems to not hold its charge.

    Abso-effin'-lutely.

    My wife & I bought 2 identical MAXXs spring 2012. My wife's MAXXs is now a complete POS due to her unwittingly accepting the ICS update. She hates it & based on that experience, she's now fighting off the JB update.

    Based on her experience (& after seeing how others had suffered), I fought off ICS starting back in July. I called & emailed Verizon several times. Eventually, I quit receiving upgrade prompts. So, maybe Verizon marked me as 'do not upgrade' ? I haven't had any upgrade prompts since then.

    End result is mine is the still the original unmolested GB MAXX & its great.

    Mine still has astounding batt life (>3+ days in standby - ~2 days w/with typical personal+business use), WiFi /3G/4G are strong , all of my apps & services work quickly & properly, and most importantly, I know where everything is.
    Her's is almost the exact opposite.

    Keep in mind these 'updates' are not for your benefit. They only benefit Googorola & your carrier by allowing greater control/restrictions/info gathering/marketing opportunities on their end. Study the Google business model and you'll learn more (Its essentially a version of the old Gillette/HP model - Give away the razor/printer & make $$ on the blades/ink.).

    I'd try harassing your carrier until they stop harassing you...Seemed to work for me!

    Good luck !

    Hey Disgusted, I feel your pain...but it could be that the JB update just might fix all your wife's ICS problems. Just a thought.

    Ya...I thought of that. But, we're both of the school of "Fool me once,......"

    She & I looked thru Android - Android 4.2, Jelly Bean and didn't see anything that offsets the risk/reward toward reward.
    It's mostly GUI tricks, more/enhanced Google tracking/personal data acquisition apps, and some of the so-called *new* features are things that even my old GB phone does.... View attachment 61473

    Throw in the potential learning curve factor(time = $$) for digging thru all of the inevitable re-arrangements and she'll stick w/ ICS for now...

    Thanks, though...
