Re: ICS update on Razr Maxx (lots of bugs)
Yes. I have a Verizon Moto RAZR and downloaded ICS yesterday. IMO, the whole process is entirely flawed. This is a major operating system upgrade, and there has been no pre-load push of how-to info, what functions have changed, how to "fix" known problems, and generally what any responsible professional company should do before plopping this on paying clients. Local Verizon staff are equally in the dark, and when I called to ask what to do with obvious problems they simply didn't know. While ICS resembles the previous OS, it is different enough to baffle and befuddle me from the moment I turned it on. Many new features so far appear to be a royal PITA, and some decisions seem to be market, rather than user, driven. For example, the OS shut down all of my e-mail accounts because of a lack of "Security Certificate", and I had to scramble on-line to find a solution to what should have never happened. Also, the 4G/3G buttons have been eliminated, leaving the default choice to "Global", which in itself was a complete surprize. As I am in a 4G weak broadcast zone, I have to toggle (with the previous OS, but this didn't use to be difficult) between the two in order to keep the system from dodging back and forth and killing the battery. I did find an online work around, but this is a stupid little move by either Verizon or Google for no purpose I can discern, other than to force everyone to be on 4G.

I don't like it.
