    Just did a manual check for a phone update. My Verizon 8x is downloading something now. I already have Portico.
    My device last checked for update 20 hours ago (Its 1:30pm EDT now). The details just say HTC Update. Will take 5-10 minutes to complete.

    Was just about to post this. Not near a WiFi source. Please give us details! At this point I rather have the cache cleaner before group SMS.

    Just found this: IMPROVEMENTS TO SIM Card Detection

    Really hope that's not the only difference. I just changed out my SIM card with Verizon because of the issues with "sim not detected" errors.

    I wont stop bashing Verizon until they add group message to HTC 8x.

    I sent this tip to WPCentral on Saturday after finding this out from the Rep from VZW. Supposedly fixes 4 issues, although he couldnt get into the details, per nda or something or other. I am suprised that VZW actually hit the date...

    I got the update earlier today and haven't noticed anything new yet. Same firmware number as the Verizon Update PDF posted by the OP

    Firmware 1532.20.20102.605

    I was hoping we'd get the Storage cleanup app like Nokia. Fwiw the update was also tagged as from HTC so that fits with the Verizon update info page indicating that it was for HTC 8x alone.

    I've noticed far better signal reception when on Wifi. Also, they might've fixed the Beats audio issue. It is confirmed that I have witnessed quicker mobile data connectivity.

    I've just begun downloading the update, looking forward to the "fix sim card detection" bug fix

    UPDATE: My update just finished running and the first thing I noticed was that my phone had the volume set lower (21 instead of 25) and when I went to make the ringer louder it gave me a warning about hearing loss. Hopefully this means that a lot of other sound/volume issues have been fixed.

    Is the volume any louder on your standard setting? For example, when you set it to 25, is the post-update 25 the same in terms of volume, or louder?

    It seems to be about the same "loudness" but it does sound a bit different, kind of hard to explain but it seems more of a softer tone instead of being so harsh and sharp

    Just what was the issue wit the beats audio,?? If you mean when the phone is not on vibrate and you plug in your headset and the confirmation sound lags?

    No, the one where Beats Audio doesn't always activate even when it says it does. You had to unplug and replug your headphones in before it actually worked. I was scanning the change log with Hardware Tests, and one change showed something involving Beats Audio, and I'm assuming that's what it was that was fixed. Haven't had a chance to confirm as it's 11:00 at night here, but I will test in the morning.

    Does it add back the ability to set an MMS APN or the ability to use the HTC Connection Setup app?

    to the best of my observation...
    - no new custom tones options for texts or emails
    - no MMS APN added....only 'internet APN' which was already there?

    That's weird. I never had that issue.

    If we're really getting into the nitty gritty here, I did a factory reset after updating and my default ringtone changed to "PM Cubes" from the old "VZW Airwaves." Not that anyone really cares. ;)

    More importantly, but with less certainty, my cell reception seems to be better. My house is an area with a constant one to two bars of LTE, and when I talk on the phone I have to go to the back of my house for people to be able to understand me. Last night I had a crystal clear conversation (according to my interlocutor) in the front of my house, where people usually can't make out what I'm saying.

    I can't think of any stutters I've had since I've updated. Hopefully it stays that way! :)
