    Any news on this? I'm getting antsy because my battery isn't getting any better, and I can't even look at baconit for an hour without losing around 30% now.

    Would like to know if anyone's heard anything, or knows of a work around that would allow me to force install portico.

    No news as far as I know. For the battery, if you don't use NFC regularly try turning it off if you haven't yet. I was going from 100%-10% in about 8 hours with NFC on. I turned it off and with some heavy use today I'm now sitting at 50% after 12 hours.

    Forgot I had that on to show a fellow WP8 user what it was. Maybe that's the culprit.

    Acutally, if you had a Trophy, all updates were out faster than any other carrier (faser than AT&T and TMOUS).

    Always leave NFC off, I disabled it as soon as I got the phone. I can get almost 3 days with moderate use on the battery...

    Everyone else is getting it. I don't know whether to be jealous or excited.

    You'll get it then still not be satisfied with the battery life. Didn't notice a difference between the updates personally.

    If its no different then I'd be slightly disappointed. The other features aren't as useful as a phone that can stay on for a few days on standby... Instead of just a day.
