Nope! Unless I wanted an expensive door stop. Have an LG Spectrum and just downloaded ICS. And am I ever sorry.

Shoot! Smiley Sad Time for a factory reset?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Well, I did it too.  If you want to waste a day fiddling with your phone to make it work the way it used to then go ahead and push the update button too.  This is a sample of what you will get:

Common icons that change shape and position

Notifications on the top status bar that you can't distinguish from each other any more

Email that is all mashed together so that you can't tell if you are getting a work email or a personal email until you look at it.

Oh and by the way, when you do open up your email, it goes to the last one that was viewed so if it was a work email, then you get to change accounts to view it

Color screens that make it difficult to read on the screen for those of us who's vision isn't what it used to be

Phones that don't match in your household anymore, so now try to answer your spouses question about settings

Make multiple calls to Verizon to try to get answers that they don't know either.  At one point I had the Verizon and Motorola rep on the phone and I finally figured out the answer before they were able to.

Your phone will look like an iphone so if that is what you wanted, then your in luck.     I DIDN'T WANT AN IPHONE OR I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT ONE!!!

This is only the beginning and I figured since I have wasted about 3 - 4 hours messing around with my phone today instead of doing productive work, I would post this to let others know to NOT PUSH THAT BUTTON.  After all, what's another few minutes.

I wish that there was some way to reverse this update.  I would do it in a heartbeat.  Thanks for nothing Motorola....
