The same with me too. No one got the goodies that we were told we were going to get. The battery life has definitely improved for me as well. My phone does not heat up a lot anymore. The android os ics, i think, was the reason why the phone battery drained so quickly. Not only that but the quadcore as well. But the temperature is staying stable. I'll thank sprint for that at the least. But i am not really satisfying.

Update after 24 hours on JB -

1) Lock screen owner info a little flaky.

2) Chrome did not work initially.  I uninstalled, and then reinstalled and now it works.

3) Battery life almost doubled, OS before on ICS using 65% of battery, now 20% with no behavior changes.

4) smoother UI

5) Better look/visual Appeal

6) less heat

7) much improved signal performance (much more 4G coverage, less 3G with more bars for both)

😎 Play store works, upon completion of update it had updates to do and once done all was good.

9) No difference in WiFi performance

I am in a full 4g area.  My update procedure was plugged in phone, backed up, ran update, once it was available some settings changed but I did not lose any data or info so backup proved to not be necessary in my case.  Overall a great update, with some bugs to iron out.

I actually came upon it yesterday on the sprint community and did what it said. Then I went back on in a couple hours to find it and it said they were doing some repairs, so I think they took it down. I can tell you how. It was easy.

It's funny how every time there's an update the claims of better reception and better battery life start coming in.  I haven't seen any difference in battery life or 4G signal.  Never had any complaints about battery life on this phone.  Also my phone has never heated up before or after the update.  The update did not fix my issue with the stock text messaging app force closing two or three times a day either liked I had hoped.  I'll agree it does work a bit smoother now with less lag.

You might be right. @SprintCare keeps telling me, even in the past hour, it gets rolled out in waves, just hang tight. I think its too bugged and they took it down. We'll just have to wait and see.

Is anyone still getting the update? I'm in Reno, NV and haven't gotten it yet.   Could they have pulled it due to all the problems?

In Baltimore, MD. No update here.

Maybe. I wouldn't doubt it. Sprint needs to get it together. Unhappy customers they've got.

Update reached Sacramento, California. Phones crash and erase personal files.

I've got the update in Austin, TX. So far I've found it works great and everything works well except for Chrome. Whenever I try to open it, it automatically crashes. Does everybody have this problem and if so, do you know a fix?

Yes. I had to factory reset mine. A friend mine's crashed and shut off for and then it turned back on.
