    Just received my Xoom back from Motorola with the 4G upgrade. And I have to say it's pretty fast. The process was pretty fast also. I sent it in Fri the 26th and received it today. I attached a screen shot that shows the 4G on the signal bar area. Who else got there upgrade?

    I didn't know it started already. How was the whole process?

    It's supposed to start Sep 1st. The process was easy. I received an email saying my device was ready for the upgrade, got the supplies needed to ship it out the next day after receiving the email and that was it.

    Are you rooted, and if so did you unroot before sending it off?

    My main interest is battery life with 4G. Can you comment on that?

    So how is the device after you got it back? Any scratches? Physical damage? Loose panels?

    Correction for vagueness. Got the box. Should receive upgraded Xoom within a few days or less.

    I was to about the 4G because my girl got the thunder bolt on launch and she had a lot of problems with the 4G. We ended up selling it on craigslist.

    I got it back the the same way i sent it. No scratches or anything. They even put a protective film over my screen protector.

    Did any of you that got the email on this receive an earlier email about the upgrade or was that the first time you saw it? Also, did you have to enter any info about the 4G SIM card or was everything automatically done for you?

    Got one email saying it was ready for the upgrade and a 2nd saying I was getting the necessary supplies to ship it out. And once you get it back all you have to do is turn it on and you might get a 4G SIM detection prompt to enable LTE/CDMA mode. If not you'll have to go to your settings and do it. But if you did not have a 3G plan before you sent it in for the upgrade you'll have to sign up for a plan.

    Couple of questions, are the folks who got it with the government or a large corp or just an individual. I had read the first batch would be government and large business users.
    Second question, where are you guys at? Is it being rolled out geographically or at random?

    Bump on the power consumption question.

    Have any of you seen a noticeable difference with the 4G radio?

    My question is this.

    Were any of the people that got the conversion done employees for VZW or were you part of the "Soak Test" for the Xoom? I am part of the soak and have received nothing.

    I filled out the form a few weeks back to get on the notification list. Is there anything else I need to do to get myself an invitation?

    It's not an invitation it's just part of the upgrade your supposed to get when you bought your Xoom with VZW. As far as I know, it's supposed to start after September 1st.

    It's not part of the soak test program.

    What if you purchased the Xoom from someone else. Would we have to contact Verizon on the upgrade?

    According to another forum, government and business owners will be upgraded first. At least the process has started...
