Still loving this phone on GB

- With this phone and an awesome battery life. I could care less about all the other added extra features. Who really uses face unlock. Anyway, don't see my upgrading or going to another phone anytime soon.

- My father has no intention of upgrading from his land line to a cell phone. He also has no intention of upgrading from writing on paper to typing on a keyboard (he does not know how to type...relied on his secretary) He also has no intention of getting an HD TV when is 32" zenith is working perfectly fine....
I'm not trying to bust your chops, seriously, for I am a noob when it comes to Android OS....I just hate to see someone getting stuck in their ways at such a young age (I'm in my 40s). I readily admit that I know very little, in fact, that is the only thing I know for sure. I just got my first android phone (moving from BB) less than a month ago, and I could not wait to get on the newest operating system. I must admit that all was initially smoother and lasted longer with GB. However, after upgrading to ICS and following DN2's factory reset instructions...ICS is moving just as fast if not faster than GB, and the battery life is excellent. So my question is: If you can have the latest and greatest OS, with no loss of speed, functionality or battery life, why not upgrade?08-18-2012 02:36 PMLike 2
- I am going to agree with Dortch on this. Before the factory reset, ics was slow and glitchy. But I had always planned to do a factory reset, and even though it was a pain, i believe it fixed most of my issues, like DN2 said. Except for the USB drive, I do like the look and functions of ics much better, it is definitely an upgrade. Google's voice control and search is so much better. As for my battery life it seems to be about the same as before. Anyway, to each his own.08-18-2012 04:45 PM
- Tried several ics builds and some interesting some sucked in the end they all had terrible battery life, have on Calks E4Gt v. 3.0 for a long time, and will stay here until my upgrade to the Gal S3 around 11/13.
Fire now just enjoying GB to its fullest.

- I personally like my phone the way it came. (eg30) I've played with a few friends devices running on the ics OTA's and rooted devices and all have their quirks. My battery life stumps all theirs and I generally use mine a lot more than they do. I don't like the features they took out and replaced such as the non scrolling homescreen wallpaper and I prefer the bounce instead of the little blue highlight that pops in once you reach the end of a list. Blue is my favorite color I might add! I currently don't feel the need to potentially have problems with my awesome as-is android phone as with some owners. The risk isn't worth taking, I don't want to be one of the guys excited about updating just to find out that I have to factory reset and other such things to get it working properly. If you're complaining...You're not happy. I'm happy on GB!08-19-2012 08:02 AM
- I'm with ready 2 rise... My phone works perfectly on GB. Why mess it up. If my phone didn't work to my expectations when I bought it, I would have returned it. I will update eventually. But only when everything is stable. I never enough trouble dealing with data speeds and dropped calls. I'm not in a hurry to mess the phone up to, and not be able to connect to wifi or any of the other problems. And when I do update, of it screws the phone up, I'll mail it back and move on.
Guess i'm just tired of all the BS sprint serves us.

- I love all the new techie stuff and have for a long time. But I'm no youngster and having had to reset every smartphone I've ever had, I'm not going for it. GB works quite nicely, I really don't care anymore about spending my time risking a loss of my "stuff." Maybe I'm growing up?
Now, I wish they would stop prodding me!

- Horders.... Lol jk. But seriously it takes 10 minutes to back up all your stuff on your computer so you will never lose those precious pictures of Todo. You should be backing your data up anyway. You never know what could happen.
Also just to clarify because there seems to be some confusion regarding factory reset on your phone. You do not lose your pictures. You do not lose your music. You do not lose any files you have saved or anything that you have saved into folders manually. All you will lose is app data.
That means you will lose your saved games and sign-in info on Facebook and such. You will still have most of your stuff after doing a factory reset. It takes 5 minutes or less to sign back in to your apps and set up email.

- I always return to EL29 for the battery. I want an ICS, or JB rom that does not consume 10% of the battery per hour while sitting face down on my desk. With EL29 yesterday my phone was on 15 1/2 hours, and still had 35% battery last night when I set it on the charger. With ICS, and JB I love the features, but hate charging my phone all day.09-25-2012 11:05 AMLike 1

If you have root use option "c".
Check out QBKing 77 videos on you tube also.
JayWill 72 also has a revert back to el 29 thread, look him up.

- I didn't run into the problems a lot of other people ran into, and my battery life hasn't changed since the ICS upgrade. What I love is the stock ICS launcher and Chrome (which has replaced Dolphin as my default browser).
The only downside is that the email app is a bit broken. When you tap on new message in the notification shade, it jumps to the last message you had open instead of the new message.09-26-2012 01:44 AM
