    Released by Verizon? ICS was made to run on a phone that's dualcore. Sure it's not the Inc 2?

    ^ that's just really a firmware update, not ICS.

    Surprised they're even releasing a firmware update. But like Chevy said, it looks like it's just a firmware update to make the phone more stable. If it were an OS upgrade then it would mention "upgrade to 4.0" or something along those lines.

    Exactly what I thought. Don't think HTC would run ICS on a 2yr old device especially when they have the Inc 2 and the Inc 4g.

    Still checking out the forums to offer help where I can, but I had to switch to the iPhone 5 (I know I know...) for work. Everyone in my department is on iPhones and MacBooks so it just helps to keep things consistent. Plus Android devices seem to have lots of problems with our mail server for whatever reason.

    Android is still my first love and I'm still compiling source for my Nexus just to see the latest updates. Lots of things I miss about android, but the iPhone has been nice as well.

    Lol. It takes some getting used to for sure. I can't stand the limitations that iOS has so ill probably jailbreak pretty soon. Also I hate all the icons on my homescreens! I was always so minimalistic on Android. The iPhone though has been pretty nice in other aspects. The battery life blows away the Nexus.

    Im glad my thread brought out some of the regulars here for discussion. LOL

    I get lost when I use the iPhone. haha..some old guy at my gym came up to me and ask if i can help him delete pictures off of his text with his iPhone. I couldnt figure it out. with my nexus i just long press and delete but not the iPhone, you have to press edit, then select then confirm. So Im not sure how is that more 'intuitive' then android?

    I still check in from time-to-time. The only issue I have is a lot more random reboots and well the battery still sucks. I've got my eye on phones on the horizon. I have an upgrade due in late April so we will see what's out then. The S3 and Note 2 look compelling but I'm interested to see what happens with the Moto/Google project we keep hearing about.

    I think traffic here has died down because 1) the phone is older now and we aren't seeing many new users, 2) people have moved on to other phones, 3) those of us using it still are pretty familiar with its use/issues.

    I'd love to see another OTA from VZW but I'm not holding my breath (I let it out after I heard they were going to stop selling it)

    I think that traffic is slim in most sections on DF because they keep creating device specific forums and drive users to those forums... Those new forums being device specific never get to much traffic to begin with as they are setup for just one device... I loved DF when everything was just here...

    Yeah I gotta help my parents with their phones from time to time and I can't navigate the stupid thing quite as easily. And on top of navigating the phone the buttons are too dang small:D

    And yeah the 5 rows of icons is annoying.

    Agreed, I'm starting to think iOS is becoming less and less intuitive. However, like Android, it just takes time for the user of the phone to get used to it. It's a very straightforward OS, but a little too straightforward, especially for us that are used to our Nexus device or any other Android device in general. Now if the iPhone had a proper back button like any other Android device it'd be way more intuitive and user friendly.
