    Phone connectivity as far as signal stability and strength so far continues to act as if VASTLY improved. Have not seen that 'x' in the signal indicator (except, of course when there really is no signal for anyone, like in the subway and tunnel) since I updated, whereas before I would get that at least twice a day. That was really my only problem with it, so I am very happy with this update. And the phone does seem even zippier although it was fast already.

    wow... I had to jump through hoops to download this updated as I used to have the phone rooted. but glad I returned to Stock, This update is a huge improvment. Seems smoothers in every since. seems more responsive, and definitly notice less ping during connection. its very fast now. I still need to try out wifi calling.... to see if that got better.... hopefully no more crackling

    So no 'crackling' anymore, or still the same situation?

    Infinitely better for me. Little bits of very quiet crackling a couple times during an hour long conversation, but no fading out or dropping. Clearest convo I've had with my mom in months.

    Also, multi - tasking is improved. Can't really say about battery life, cause I use Juice Defender.

    well I tried the wifi calling. it does seem better... at first... no difference but then it become very clean sounding. So that is nice. also like blaize said... way better on the multitasking. but seems to suck a little more battery. but thats okay with me. ill take the sacrifies.

    I can't tell for sure on battery life, but, yeah, maybe a little bit worse. Overall this is a very worth it update.

    Hello, I just downloaded and installed the update. I see the option to remap the recent apps button but it does nothing. Also, where is the quick settings in the dropdown?

    So far it seems alot smoother and signal seems better. Will update after I use it some more.


    Sorry for the dual post...

    Same here, menu button does not work, it still brings up recent apps button even after I changed it.

    I guess I will have to wait for the next update to fix it, hopefully 4.2 jellybean by then

    Are you sure? Go to Settings > about > Software Update and it says your up to date? Check Software Information... What android version do you have? 4.0.4 is the latest one. What region are you in?

    I searched high and low for you. I had no luck at finding good news. Someone else asked the same question on XDA and no one answered. Looks like your carrier (since its prepaid) wont get the update. And HTC doesnt offer a downloadable version over the interenet. The only way to update is with the OTA update on the phone that has to go threw your carrier. Hopefully HTC will make the downloadable version available soon. Id try contacting them and seeing what they could do... They might send it to you. Who knows...

    Or you can always choose to root your phone and download whatever version you want. Good luck

    I'm not prepaid, they offer prepaid but they also have monthly plans with 2 year contract like every other carrier. I called iwireless and they told me all updates come directly from HTC and i would definitely get it. I emailed HTC and they just danced around the question and said they don't have any information on when updates are released. Im sick of the bugs with this phone with signal fluctuation between 4g, 3g, and edge. Poor WiFi and no menu button
