Now the Real Goods on this phony "Upgrade." They just forgot to mention a few things:
1- If you have Themes DL to your device, icon arrangement will be destroyed. If you have over 100 icons & 5 themes as I do...Have fun!
2- Any folder you've creaed containing your 3rd party apps...History! Gone
3- Productivity Launchers insatlled from apps like Versa Tools or Launch Pad......Kaput!
4- Activation Codes for a multitude of apps... better start hunting and pecking for them. If your apps are not on your Mobihand Account, better remember where you got em from originally, because they will not work and you will not have access to those codes or apps anymore.
5- Java Script/ Null Exception pointers corrupting a handful (only if your lucky) of apps that will cause major problems. As will probably the case, a system wipe or worse, disposing of bricked, defective phone .
6- If your device is "hooked up" so to speak, look for behaviors, mountains of re-do time, and self- motivation to launch it right into the wall!
This is a DOWN GRADE! If your Storm came right out of the box, You'd have a 20% chance of plan B (no need to step on it). But if you've put a great deal of time into your device and have been victimized (attacked by prior Down Grades)....STAY AWAY.
I have this thing working just fine right now. I'll live with the 10 minute reboots and be a touch smarter.
Just like the Government....CHANGE we DO NOT NEED!
