Phone update

I have had phone almost since it came out.
I bought it cause I wanted a phone with a large screen, the screen is the best feature, it was a little buggy some things like the wifi hot did not work and that is why I bought this phone cause I have a laptop, the camera would close the phone would restart, it did not have a good signal.
I went to the tmobile store and they gave me a new sim card and it seemed to have a better 4g signal bit still buggy,
Since I did the software update to ICS android it seems to have fixed most of the phones issues, except it seems that it still does not have a great 4g signal, and it seems to use the battery even faster, so I go into the settings and switch to 2g and battery last all day,
I think the problem ...

On phone scoops specs it says it has Android version 2.3.4, but you can upgrade it to vervion 4.0, How?
HTC website does not say how to do it?

NFC Capability

I love the NFC function on the Amaze. I am using the NXP Tag Writer App and the NFC Task Launcher App along with tags from » .
They have a variety of stickers, key chains, cards, etc.
I have tags where I can just tap it and it will open up Facebook, turn on my alarms, and turn on/off my wi-fi. I also have tags that just store my contact information so I can give to other people.

camera / phone issues??

I was using the camera the other day and went to take a pic and touched the screen and it went from the camera app to the home screen?
it did this twice and not since.
I am trying to like this phone but it seems buggy.
I tapped on the home screen and it shut off?
I tapped on the home screen the screen it was black then realized it seemed off so I touched the power button and it came on?
Anyone else out their have this phone have any problems?

WiFi Hotspot

I bought this phone cause mainly it has a larger screen better screen than my old phone.
A mytouch4g, also as luck has it the specs are also supposed to be better, faster dual core processor, better camera, more memory

I see it seems like I am the only one out their with an amaze, and I don't want to seem like I am bashing the phone but the more you use a product the more you find how it works and feels.
ok that said the the form the size is not to bad a little larger than my last phone a mytouch, but it has a bigger screen, what I wanted, But the metal plastic case is kind of slippery in your hand and a little hard to hold onto and may be easy to drop. my mytouch had a kind of rubberized outer edge that made it easy to hold onto.
The buttons, well the only ones that are good are the camera and video buttons they are in a good location on the phone and they work like they are supposed to.
The power button and the volume buttons, well maybe these button...

WCDMA bands

Does this T-Mo phone really have the 850 and 1900 MHz WCDMA bands as the specs here indicate? I see different specs depending where I look, even on the T-Mo web sites. The following link, for instance even adds the 900 MHz band: »
On the other hand,the following link ... »
only shows the usual T-Mo UMTS bands I & IV. So what is it really?
