    Just did a check for updates and looks like it is updating to ICS.
    Hope it runs well.

    Agreed. Do you need to be on wifi?

    Updated mine, downloaded fast on WiFi, all done and running ICS in about 30 minutes. No problems so far, like many things I see in new interface. Email (non Gmail) looks much cleaner and seems faster. Overall like what I have seen and used.

    working great on mine. cannot believe that ICS hit this phone so quickly. Quite honestly (due to my experience with AT&T) I wasn't holding my breath for this update until well into summer... great surprise! Now we'll compare that to when my wife's Galaxy S2 gets its update!

    Probably want to be instead of using data from the network. I'm going to do it in a bit..:-)

    It installed with no issues on my stock Vivid. Seems really smooth in screen to screen transitions. Thank you HTC and ATT

    Seems ok so far. No quirks just yet. I hope battery life improves with this update. With sporadic use during the day, batter would be 40% left after 14 hours.

    Screen is definitly looks sharper.

    Does anyone know how to turn off the animations? I can't find it in the new settings.

    So far so good (had it installed about an hour now), thankful to see that they left the long press menu the same as other HTC devices instead of stripping it of everything but wallpaper like stock ICS.

    You have to be connected to wifi of tethered to a computer with an Internet connection, yes.

    In the settings go all the way down to the bottom and click develop option. Then click on the windows animation scale. U will see the option to turn animation off.

    Took the update this afternoon over wifi. It installed without a hitch. Been bonding with it ever since. Thanks to the folder feature, I've compressed seven home pages full of icons and widgets into three. Beats Audio seems to cure the DSP problem ICS tablets like my Transformer Prime have using EQ and/or Poweramp. The equalizers work on the Vivid. So far, so good.

    Honestly I can't tell the difference at all.....What are the things in the update other than some setting adjustments? Supposedly the screen and batter are better but I can't tell. The beats I'm guessing only works with headphones cause I can't click on it... I kinda liked the old interface better.

    From what I've noticed:

    1. Resolution has improved. Or, they just changed the font size to make it look less pixely.
    2. Noticed battery improvement
    3. Very iOS'esque with the bottom 4 selections always being on the screen. But you can change them.
    4. Ability to track data usage without a 3rd part app. Once you hit your limit (say 3GB it will turn off network data).
    5. Beats Audio (never used anyway)
    6. Native mail app better interface
    7. Louder speaker phone!

    I don't see much difference between Sense 3.0 and 3.6, so meh.

    Battery life will be tested today when I'm at the office. I carry my phone around all day but can't use it IN the office due to classified information around and I keep WiFi on. I would say an hour of actual use in business hours (breaks/lunch). So I look at standby time more than "usage" time.

    Seriously? Single swipe to delete notifications in notification window.
    Ability to pull down notification window while phone is locked.
    Better email client
    changed font
    beats audio
    quicker scrolling
    different settings menu
    dock bar on the bottom to hold more apps

    and a lot more.... you really cant tell the difference?

    For some reason flash player is not working even though plugins are set to always on. The market says I need to update adobe flash but when I try it keeps saying it is busy and to try again later. Anyone else having this issue?
