    Default Software Update changes?

    Anyone privy to the recent software update changes? I couldn't find a change log anywhere when i updated my Lucid 2 this morning and the Android version is still 4.1.2.

    Even more perplexing, the website Verizon gave for more info (verizonwireless.com/lucid2support) isn't even a functioning webpage. It just throws an error.

    Figured out at least one change: the wonky light sensor. The update fixes this and allows the screen dimming/brightening to behave much less erratically.

    That website worked (I copy/pasted it from your post) on my PC. Must've been a temporary glitch. Anyway, below is a screen-scrape from Verizon's PDF. The dashed items are indented under the preceding bullet item.

    I noticed one other new thing in Application Manager/Running: "Verizon Location Agent." Just what we need on a 1GB phone: another 10 MB of free RAM taken away. If I had known I would lose 10 MB of free RAM, I wouldn't have updated.

    Also, despite the new Google Maps Services (R5), I still have my Navigation icon, unlike others who have updated Maps and lost that icon. Maybe that isn't what takes it away.

    Yeah, after weeks of no free ram or storage (turns out I'm more of a power user than I originally thought) I took the plunge on an EDGE plan and the G2. What an amazing phone!

    The Lucid 2 started randomly rebooting, running sluggish (it would take up to 30 seconds just to open Messages app) and displaying overall wonky behavior. No way could I have stuck it out with that thing for another 13 months under that contract.
