    Ive got an update waiting, however I can't download it until I get on WiFi. Have had this phone for only a month and this is the second update. What exactly is Portico supposed to address? These little updates don't mean squat to be if they can't resolve the bigger issues such as notifications, etc.

    Daniel, my phone doesn't seem to tell me when my phone has an update, for I just went into phone updates and it said that it last checked on Monday even though the box is checked to tell me when updates are available. Why doesn't it tell me?

    And I got the update. Thanks for the tip!

    It's been put for a month already, hasn't it? I've been running it for sometime. There were a few threads on it when it dropped.

    HTC 8X Updated Today, What's it about??

    I updated my Verizon 8X and it is rebooting every two minutes or so (it has done it six times)....I am hard resetting it now.

    It should be noted that I updated it over Wifi.

    Nevermind... I was wrong....

    They advertised it in the update info and stuff, but still no option to disable or enable it. Also, my friend sent me a group text and there no way to distinguish it. Massive security concerns. You can text any Verizon WP8 user with a group text to eavesdrop on conversations
