Ugh, I've been following this post for days and I'm excited to hear it is here for real, but patience is running low.  I want my Jelly Bean!

Journeyman

Yes I agree!

Journeyman

Thanks for that tip to update! Got it here in Cincinnati, Ohio.

first thing I noticed was the lock screen. On the phone lock it usually closes for the outside in with a circular motion, now it locks with no effect does anyone else have this problem do you know how to fix it to go back to the way it was before the update?

Journeyman

I tried the tricks outlined above and no luck.  Then about 5 minutes ago started downloading on it's own.  It will happen for you.  I am in S. Calif.

I am a Sprint Account Specialist at a Corporate store, also I'm the advocate for this device. A soon as I was done installing the update I notinced a lot of changes!

The particular one that is bugging me is the fact that my phone is sending my texts in tripples. I tried everything, tot h point where it works for a few texts and then it starts doing it again. Does this mean I'll have to do a Hard Reset??

Changes:

*Lock Screen

*Aded Groups

*Smaller Text Convo display

*More Apps can fit on the screen

*Different weather widget display

*Tasks App&widget

*Sprint Zone widgets

(MOST OF THE WIDGETS CHANGED & IMPROVED)

*Some of the menu display changed a bit

*ICE for Contacts

*On/Off buttons looks different

*On a missed alert, onthe drop down menu there is a Call/msg option now

Thanks

Journeyman

Yeah me too....I seen someone post on here that they live in the metro detroit area and got it, but I live in the same area and nothing.....I guess it's time to play the waiting game.

Journeyman

Journeyman
