jco23,

Does it keep recontacting you to update this "MANDATORY" update every 30 minutes like it says in Verizon's instructions???

It bothers me that Verizon says it is MANDATORY.  I own the phone, NOT Verizon, and I pay for the use of their bandwidth so why do/can they demand that I accept this update.

My phone works perfectly now so why would I want this update.  I read the list of what the update does and I am NOT interested in what this update does

I was getting that annoying pop up message every so often, so I tried to download and install, but got an error picture (as opposed to a message).  could be because my phone is rooted.  it failed on both EP4D Tweakstock and EP4P Humble.

so nothing really happens.  my only reason for installing this is that it supposedly clears up that "crackling" noise....  I only get that (and a squeaking sound) when playing back a video that I recorded.

other than that, my phone is working perfectly.

jco23,

I noticed that you said, "I only get that (and a squeaking sound) when playing back a video that I recorded."

Did you try that video somewhere else such as your PC or, better yet, in someone else's Charge phone.  Maybe it's the video and NOT your phone.  Just a thought my friend.

PS,  JCO23...if you want me to test it in my "completely stock GB Charge phone," send me a private message with your email address and I will send you my email address so you can send the Video to me.

The OTA doesnt change anything <post edited per TOS>. I just played with it. nothing changes. not the system version or anything its just a "hey if you think you own your phone, <Keep it clean, thanks!>"

I got the notification on my phone this morning.  I downloaded it and let the phone do its thing while the update installed.  I came back to it 30 minutes later, and now I am in a perpetual boot loop.  It also appears that the phone is continuously sending my last text message - 6 times as of this writing.  I don't know what to do other than a factory reset, but I don't want to lose all my apps and data.  I'm contemplating going to the VZW store, but I suspect they will simply do the same factory reset, and from what I've read about other updates, there's no guarantee it will fix the problem.  Anyone have any suggestions?
