Re: New Owner Recommendations Requested
I don't see how it would be a problem. Some may have reported a problem (miniscule amount), but then again, only people with a problem in this area would report it. People aren't going to post "My phone hooks up to WiFi just fine."

I didn't, and my phone is working fine. But if you were going to do so, it would be an opportune time to do it.
If so, should I initiate an FDR after receiving the JB update?
On battery life you might want to deselect "automatic screen brightness", switch it to manual and turn it to below 50%. Also, there are some SmartActions you can implement to help battery life. Practically speaking, I don't see a way you could run the battery out of power in 24 hours if you tried to do so.
Should I configure the RMHD is a specific way to increase speed and/or battery life?
That's personal preference. You might try Googling "Top Ten Free Android Apps" or else go into the Google Play Store and look at the most frequently downloaded apps, click on the description and see if it appeals to you.
Which apps, utilities, and widgets would you recommend I install?
Here's a few I carried over from my last phone:
K9 Email (syncs with email servers better and has more features than stock email app.)
Tape-a-Talk (turns your phone into a sound recorder)
SoundHound (identifies any song playing--quite impressive)
As another person mentioned, if you are on Verizon Share Everything plan you can create mobile hotspots and only be charged for data usage on your phone (at least I think this is how it works, not sure.)
I would like to implement mobile hotspot without paying Verizon extra. A few folks have very recently reported they got FoxFi working with JB. Hope that is true. If not, is there another recommended app that will enable mobile hotspot operation?
Have fun! And get ready to be blown away by battery longevity.
What else would you recommend?
