Yea I'm in the same boat as you Opt1mus. where are the new and updated apps we were supposed to get? However my unlock screen says sprint.

I just starting to use my phone now, haven't looked at notifications or camera yet, but Google Now is available on mine by holding the home button and pressing the G in the middle. My lock screen says LG for the carrier, instead of Sprint or Chamelwon but I am on the MVNO provider Ting, not Sprint directly if that makes a difference?

Thanks, found Google Now per your info

Looks like my notifications do expand, pulling down with 2 fingers, but doesn't have some of the functionally that I've seen in the featured promo on YouTube

I'll keep tinkering with it

I got it today at 1:30pm, Massachussetts.  Did nothing special, it just showed up :~)

So it appears like nearly every one of us got the update on the same day today.  Did the servers survive?  It appears like they did just fine.  So hopefully they continue this strategy so that all, or at least most everyone can get future updates at the same time.

Mine doesnt do that. I'm kind of diaappointed. What does it mean if the notifications dont expand?

I'm not sure..

Next time you receive a notification, try using two fingers in an up/contract  down/expand swiping  motion on the actual notification it self, similar to swiping to the side to clear.

I've used this with emails,  it only allows a few additional lines of info.

Also,  MMS messages offer a small preview of the content.

I've seen screen shots that showed a sliding brightness bar,  as well as,  advanced Qslide features.  These were not included in my update that I have noticed
