    I also can confirm that the Verizon GDR2 Update for the HTC 8X is live. It is currently 1:45 PM EST and the update is currently downloading. Here comes group text :). (Hopefully)

    Fellow VZW 8X owners...

    Be sure you have at least 550 MB of storage available, otherwise you won't be able to download the update.

    Downloading now....

    Group MMS does not work. I sent a group text to 3 friends and got a reply. the reply came outside the group I sent. YES, I turned it on in settings.

    Some other observations POST update:
    Battery went from 70% at download/install to 20%. I have never seen it fall that fast ever.
    FM Radio works.
    XBM no real noticeable improvements from MPOV.

    wifi and cell data connection are flying in IE... It might be your phone caching things from your online accounts in the background, like my gmail took forever to update, but once it updated once was fine... my people tile had no pictures which is what leads me to think it might be downloading a bunch of caching type stuff right off the bat.

    Edit: was just going to comment on cell data, but decided to connect to the work network to let you know...

    Well, I had to delete all of my music in order to install. Apparently it needs WAY more than 550 MB free (I freed up around 2 GB) to install. If you run out of space while it is in the "preparing to install" stage, it will warn you that you need X more MB free and it starts over. I can't wait for this to finish so I can free up some space! That's my biggest gripe with this damn thing.

    I don't think thats the case with my phone as the wifi still hasn't worked. I have restarted the phone a couple of times and soft reset too. The cell data is working perfect though.

    sh**!!! The Make More Space app doesn't work for me! Under temporary files, it now says 2.38 GB and "tap to schedule temp file removal". When tapping, it does nothing!!!!

    I don't know about the "Make more space" app, but the fix in GDR2 doesn't work immediately. "GDR2, finally, provides a fix of sorts: It will automatically clear out space in the "Other" category. Unfortunately, it will not do so until your phone storage fills up. But that's certainly better than the original situation." From http://winsupersite.com/windows-phon...er-storage-bug.

    Yea, I got caught by this. I had to dump quite a few apps in the middle of the update so it could continue. I didn't realize I was that close to my limit. I believe my next phone will definitely have 32GB.

    My "Other" storage went from 2.41Gb to 1.68Gb. *shrug* I haven't tested the group messaging fix yet.

    I thought GDR2 was supposed to allow us to select any "lens" app and use that as the default camera app... I can't find where to do this. If I go into settings->applications->Photos+camera, there is an option to change what happens when you press the camera button, but only "Camera (built-in app)" is there, not other options.

    Maybe I was mistaken about this feature? (I have an 8X on Verizon).

    I was wondering the ssame thing. I'm only speculating, but I'm thinking its now up to the devs to add that feature to their apps.

    Anyone having problems with texts? RRandomly I'll just start getting the "Cant send try again" error. I have to soft reset to fix. Anyone else?

    yes, the "Can't Send Message Try Again" thing is driving me up a wall. It *never* did this until after the GDR2 update.

    Same deal with the Try Again thing. About ready to toss it through a window.
