Re: ICS for vivid

Altogether i have 57 pre installed apps that i disabled. And ive noticed a massive increase in battery life, saving data, and frees alot of memory. So your choice my friend.

I think I will leave them alone. Att apps don't allow disable. I'm not sure what I need, for example, footprints..

Re: ICS for vivid

Something I seem to have just found out with the ICS upgrade and the change from "Market" to "Play Store"....

 

You no longer seem to have the ability to charge your PAID purchases to your AT&T account (easy to manage), instead they want you to create a Google Wallet account!

 

What was happening after the change-over is that when I'd try to purchase an app, it would say "An error had occured, try again later."

 

Researching this on the net said to clear the data cache for Play Store and reboot.

 

This requires you to set up your account again and the only option they give you is Google Wallet.

 

Google is cutting AT&T out of the money stream!

 

I also don't reallyy trust Google Wallet as they've had some security issues before.

 

Give us back AT&T!

I'm ok with that as long as Google lets us turn off automatic purchases. I had a problem with att's system when I accidentally clicked an ad which charged my account.

OK, I got tired of the browser, gmail and tumblr crashing and bluetooth problems when charging. I found a post somethere that suggested installing the update from the HTC website they call it the "RUU" update? I hope this fixes my problems.

Re: ICS for vivid

Neither browser nor Gmail force stop. I don't use tumblr so I couldn't say anything there.

The HTC link is the update but from HTC installed via pc instead of downloaded on phone. I'm not sure it solved my problems, Gmail crashed this morning on an email with images. I still have to use it a while to see.

Re: ICS for vivid

That's the funny thing, they didn't/don't force stop, they just shut down/close/disappear.
