    I had the same problem and I posted it in another thread. I could open text messages from everyone except my fiance. For others I had less than 100 texts but I downloaded another SMS app to read my fiance's texts and it counted over 3,600. Just for fun I'm trying to open her texts again and I'm going to leave it sit for a few hours and see if it eventually opens.

    It almost seems that the predicted havoc this update was supposedly going to bring never materialized. I guess HTC and Verizon did the right thing here by ignoring all of the whining about delays (my whining included) and decided to get this thing right.

    So when do we get Jelly Bean?

    We have 2 thunderbolts, one updated just fine, the other not so much. Major problems with Wi-Fi staying connected, upon reboot it has 4g toggled off and is stuck on 3g mode. Was having lots of lag loading apps and the phone dialer, but got better after deleting some pics and a reboot. The biggest issue now is with the clock. The widget click on the home screen maintains the proper time, but the one in the top corner will stop working and be hours off. With the Wi-Fi problem, it keeps switching the 4g on and off and that's killing the battery. Neither phone is rooted. Not sure what to do. Anyone think a factory reset would help?

    My friend just upgraded to ICS last night and the Facebook and Facebook Messenger app will no longer show notifications. He said he has disabled and re-enabled them but it still won't show anything when he gets any messages. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this?

    Cool. I can move my "people" icon to the bottom tray, so I can get to "them" from anywhere. I also experimented, you can move a folder down there, too. I need to think about which others I want down there, probably Google maps and Gmail, EDIT: Jorte Calendar.

    Go to Settings, then Storage, then scroll down to factory reset at the bottom.

    So..... Since the update last night: My video no longer works. My outgoing voice on the phone mic no longer works, my phone is now slower than a Commador 64, the battery drained in less that 2 hours (have large capacity battery) and the wifi wont stay engaged. Yep, your right. Dont know what all of the fuss was about. It's almost a given that there will be havoc with a Thunderbolt update. I ducked on a few, been burned by a few. This one's is a new low.

    Sorry you're having trouble. And sorry to ask, but have you done a factory reset yet? If you have, my bad, but if you haven't, give it a try.

    Thanks for the reply mighty. I appreciate the sympathy (really!) I'm like 808 above though. I've never done a factory reset. Not only not sure how to do it, but very hesitant to lose data, photos, apps, and most important, over two years of tweaks I've done to my 1st day T-Bolt. Some I don't even remember I did clear back to the initial battery issues. If I knew how to save all of that, I certainly would give it a try. I'm sure somewhere on a thread there's point by point instructions from some really friendly super user (wink, wink, hint hint!). It would make a great "sticky". In the mean time, I started a new thread on the mic during call issue. That's the most critical for Brian Conner. It's what makes my smart phone a phone. Lol. Thanks, ill look into doing a factory reset with minimal collateral damage. Appreciate it.

    The official was a little laggy, so I flashed Santod's Debloated and things are all good. I'm liking ICS.

    Disclaimer: I'm not rooted, and others on here know WAY more than me about some of this stuff.

    I haven't done a factory reset since shortly after getting the phone, but it won't (or is not supposed to) erase any SD card data. That's a straightforward back-up, just in case: Plug the phone into a computer, mount as a drive, and copy everything that is on your SD card onto your computer hard drive. Take screenshots or photos of your home screen layout. Uninstall / disable security software, especially avast! (if you use it). Disable Google two-factor authentication (if you use it) before you start. From what I understand, tweaks and settings on a non-rooted phone are harder to back-up. I'm using MyBackup Pro (non-rooted) and I think there is some stuff that it can't save without root access.

    The question I have is, if I root using the "official" HTC method, does that give programs like MyBackup or Titanium Backup the access they need for a "full" backup?

    Yes, if you root, programs such as Titanium Backup can do a full backup of your phone.

    I have to say I was a little aggravated this morning when I picked up my phone to see a whole different home screen! When vzw pushed the GB update, it gave me a choice to update or not! The ICS automatically updated last night and my phone freaked me out this morning! I had given up hope on getting ICS a long time ago!

    It wouldn't let me do anything. Not even a restart! I finally figured out how to get to my actual home screen but every time the screen went off it went back to a screen saying something like " your sim card needs to activate, this may take a few minutes" I was finally able to do a 'restart' and now it works. So haven't really looked yet and what else is different. Crazy that they would push ICS at this late date of the Tbolts! I am headed to a Galaxy Note 2 soon!

    Woke up this morning to see that ICS had pushed overnight. Took with it some of the widgets on my screens and I cant open any of my SMS messages. Did a hard reset with no luck as well as deleted some of my extraneous apps. Nothing, so I think we're going to try a factory reset next. Irritating as all get out!

    when i first recieved ota update everything was very sluggish... had to reinstall downloaded apps. by the next day everything that i was typing in search fields, phone numbers i dialed, and other fields were all appearing in a red or pinkish color. didn't know if this was malware or virus so i let it go for couple of days. also there were frequent data drops (in orange county -so cal-) which led to one complete data loss soon after. i had to do factory reset and after this the red/pinkish text disappeared and returned to green. running much more stable now. losing flash on websites sucked and i didnt know what to do. i downloaded apk file from friend and now able to view most flash sites. kinda strange though i use stock browser most of time and flash content only plays when im in incognito mode. ill take what i can im just glad im able to see website video. when i use google maps navigation it works fine and i like different voice for guidance. kinda strange also that sometimes when given navigation prompts, it starts with gingerbread voice then reverts to ics voice (weird). seems like their is only one volume control for everything (kinda annoying). Battery doesn't last very long at all (still running stock battery ) so i will be upgrading to much higher capacity one. Facebook and live wallpapers drain battery very fast. so glad i can now run Time Warner Cable live tv app now so i can watch all my channels. hope this stabilizes phone now. I'm do for upgrade next month and will be keeping this for a while. New Phones get released very quickly so ill wait a bit. went to verizon store other day to see DNA to my surprise it was on 4glte and tried to use browser... it took forever compared to my dinosaur tbolt. Anyway, last year my data drops began around Easter and lasted all the way until this OTA. I hope things will get ironed-out. Thanks for everyone's posts on Android Central... it has been very helpful to me.

    Hey Unobtanium, thanks! Just what I was looking for. Hopefully 808 checks back and sees your advice. I think we both know way more about our TB's than we want, because we had to so it would work full potential. There are definitely others here who know a LOT more than I will, or want to. Lol. Hell, I'm scared to factory reset my phone, let alone root it. But someone answered yes to your query about full backup if rooted, and that just might make me put my big boy pants on and Jump into the deep end of the root pool. (Mixed metaphors, gotta love them)
    Again, thanks for being "the super guy" and taking my not too hidden hints. Appreciate it.

    No problem. Screenshots are easy with ICS: Power + Home, they go into your camera shots gallery.

    BTW, one other thing I have noticed is the LTE signal seems to be more stable. I also was in a place to day that I normally get no data or voice and still had no data but voice was full strength. I'm also been around my mom's today, a place where I've previously had drops to 3G and random reboots and so far, so good with this update.

    The text message issue, ie messages won't load, seems to a big one and I too was extremely hesitant to do the factory reset. I did find some info elsewhere that cleared it up for me. The first suggestion was to go to settings> apps> running then stop messages and restart it. I found a second suggestion as well which was to plug the tbolt into the charger, then go to settings> display and turn off sleep mode. Then go into messages and just let the loading screen sit. I combined then two and about 15 minutes later my texts were back and good to go. Before trying this I had let my phone sit and try to load a few times, once for over an hour and once for about 4 hrs each time with sleep mode engaged and neither worked. Hopefully this helps and ends some of the text messaging frustration.
