    Default So exactly what did this update do?

    How is the phone changed? Sim issues resolved? Speaker volume improved? Bluetooth more stable? Any efficiency improvement in battery usage or power management?

    What (if any) are the noticeable improvements or changes?

    I can't tell that anything has changed, but I didn't have any problems before accepting the OTA.

    That is what it is supposed to have fixed. I don't notice much other than huluplus, but I don't use a headset and didn't have any wifi issues to begin with.

    Hopefully those bluetooth issues got fixed.

    It seems to have fixed the mobile hotspot for me, but I didn't have any other problems with the phone besides that. My wife has had a lot of Bluetooth audio problems with hers in her car, so I should find out tomorrow if that is fixed for her and will report back.

    "Enhanced Recent Apps functionality has been improved"

    I think this refers to the fact that often times, certain applications (Google Chrome for instance) often appeared as just a black square instead of a screenshot of the app. At least, that's how it looks so far for me.

    I made a few outgoing calls via bluetooth last night which I had a lot of trouble with prior. Hope I am not jinxing myself by typing this!

    The update seems to have made my phone bluetooth compatible with the u connect in my dodge.

    I don't care what kind of phone you have, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence.

    As far as I can see, all it did for me was put my phone out of commission for 10 minutes Bluetooth always worked with my Motorola handsfree. I never had a problem with wifi. Don't hare about Hulu. At least it didn't BREAK anything!

    I mentioned this in another thread but it also made mail messages notifications in the notification bar expanded.

    This is one of those rare threads where most people don't have any issues with their phones, so we have no idea what the update did. Anyone else besides me think that's awesome?!

    I got the infamous SIM Card error this morning after updating last night.

    This is exactly what I was afraid of. So let's see if I have this right -- Vz "fixed" stuff most of us don't know or care about and left untouched the real problem(s) with this otherwise wonderful phone. I guess they didn't get the memo about the proverbial '800 lb gorilla.'

    I think they included a few more scenes in the HTC wallpaper drawer.

    My Phone is much faster, see other update threads showing my speed tests.

    Some new game.

    thats all I see so far.

    It seems to have fixed my Wi-Fi drop outs. I always get drop outs from my garage every 2 minutes. After the update, I didn't see one drop out. But I will keep testing to see if this was just coincidence last night.

    This no SIM card thing is getting out of hand. While it may only be happening to a select number of handsets (2 out of 3 for me), it's common enough on those devices and crippling enough that it is hard to overlook as a "well, they'll fix it eventually." And I don't even know who to blame at this point.

    Update wiped my phone. The frustration I'm feeling right now marks the first time in more than a year that I'm considering a return to an iPhone. Sometimes the lack of quality control in the Android ecosystem is insane.

    Android is just fine & most people's phones didn't get wiped from the update. I understand your frustration tho, no one wants all their info wiped & have to start over.

    My DNA would lose WiFi connection after I would place it on the charger. When I'd try to open up Settings screen, or the WiFi screen (if I was lucky enough to be able to open Settings), it would display a completely blacked out page!

    Only fix would be to reboot, after which it would allow me to go into Wifi settings, and reconnect my DNA to my wifi.

    It was a total pain, but it would only happen a few times a day, and otherwise, my DNA worked great!

    Well, other then lousy Bluetooth when my DNA would connect to my Volt.

    Both problems seem to have been resolved, as I haven't seen the black screen all day yesterday, and sound from my Volt's speakers when using DNA to make calls is vastly improved.

    Ok, then that's why I didn't see that issue - no wireless charger (yet). Glad that ones fixed though.

    The only Wifi issues I had before were apps like Tunesync and FTP Server not working. I thought it was me, however after this update I can do a wireless sync with my laptop.

    One problem I've noticed since day one is that when you try to send an email through the playstore (feedback to a developer) it opens a mail but comes up with a warning "No accounts exist. Please add an account". The thing is I'm already signed in to my gmail account. Anyone else have this problem?
