Hey really hoping for some answers!  I just activated my Viper last Thursday, does this effect if or when I will get the update??  Does it matter that it is a work phone?   Thanks, anxiously awaiting ICS...

I still haven't recieved the update yet. I heard everyone should have it by the 12th... is this true?

The update was released on 2012-11-01 and the website says, “Released in stages with 100% of devices having received the update within 10–15 days.” I haven’t gotten the update either, but I’m only annoyed at the wait, not concerned—at least until the 16th.

11/13 and still no update yet, i am starting to wonder if ICS on the Viper is just a myth.

Will I get the upgrade soon? I just received my Viper on Sunday. You think they'll get to mine in the same time frame?

I'm having the same problem.  This update has made my phone almost un-usable!  I'm going to the Sprint store today

Got my update yesterday and now I have no browser access, Google Play will barely work, nor can I access certain apps.  It was recommended to me to uninstall and reinstall some apps.  I did this with Words with Friends and after it installed, it won't let me connect to see my game.  I've changed some of the Network Conenctivity settings and my browser worked temporarily but after a few minutes it stopped again.  It seems like maybe this only work with 4G, while my phone is often connected via 3G.  As a side note: I know this is petty, but I loathe the light blue colors in the status bar, messaging, etc.

I just went to the Sprint store and found out how to fix it:

Settings>System Settings>under Wireless & Networks, click 'More'>Mobile Networks>Network Mode>Select 'CDMA'

This should fix it.  It seems the phone was only trying to connect on 4G and since it is not yet widely available, it would cause the browser, etc to not work.  Setting it to CDMA makes it so it will only use the 3G network and once 4G is available, you can switch it back to the LTE.

Anyone who is already on a 4G network shouldn't have a problem.
