    Ok. Now on day 3 of the date. Noticing that my phone randomly shuts down. I might check a text, lock the phone, put it in my pocket. Check about 20-30 mins later... the phone is off! The same thing happened last night. I put my phone on my charger, next thing you know I hear the vibrate sound as if its turning back on. Thanks for the update HTC. Loving this one!

    Thanks guys for the heads up. Just got the update notice yesterday. I might just sit on this for awhile to see if these issues are wide spread and/or persistent...tho the eventual wp8.1 update will likely force the issue idunno. But thanks guys for sending out a heads up.

    I got the same update on the 9th. I have not yet noticed anything other than what has already been mentioned except that I have had no issues with wi-fi or anything.

    I had a similar problem. Went to Verizon store and swapped sim card out for new one. Have not had that problem since.

    This did change the boot logo however as now it is just a red screen with the Verizon logo instead of that weird cube with verizon's and MS's logos. Also, during the installation it said migrating data. What does that mean?

    My wife and I both received this update on Saturday (7/12) and now both phones cannot connect to the home WiFi at all. My phone cannot connect at work either. This is going to be an expensive update if I no longer have the ability to connect to WiFi.

    Nothing on the VZW website about it. Bad.

    Mine are, as well. Work wi-fi does not work at all!
    I also am experiencing glitchy wifi after this update. I am just hoping that it works better with 8.1. So for now I am waiting.

    I noticed this too. Has anybody tried charging the phone while off? I have seem to have lost this function.

    For the people that are having WiFi issues, are you on WP 8.1?

    No, Windows 8.0 with WiFi problems. Verizon Wireless hasn't pushed it to the 8x yet.

    I received the same update in Seattle last week (FW 30300_42201 _605) and now WiFi drops off and won't reconnect (or even find any hot spots) until I reboot Fortunately the phone reboots randomly many times a day so I guess there's an upside there. The battery also is draining in record time - like an hour or two but not all the time. I suspect this is related to some app behaving badly but I haven't figured out which one. Before this update I can't recall the last problem I had with the phone. It has been rock solid.

    From Verizon:

    THE FOLLOWING IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN
    MADE:
    Data Usage Applies. LTE is a trademark of ETSI. 2014 Verizon Wireless. 0614-H6194
    WINDOWS PHONE 8X
    Roaming enhancements when traveling internationally
    Improved reliability when sending SMS messages

    This was a single page PDF, no other info.
    First call I made post update, had the speaker phone on and wouldn't turn off. The phone did not reboot after the update, just at the beginning with the new Verizon screen and the new Wi-Fi addition to that icon., so I did it now, sound went back to normal. No other issues yet...

    I experienced difficulties with home and work WiFi after the update, phone found no active networks. I deleted all of my saved networks, did a hard reboot of the phone and was able to logon to my networks again.

    it would be fantastic if "Improved reliability when sending SMS messages" means the "Can't send message. Try again" issue is fixed!

    I just got the update (California). Since its intermittent, it will take a few days to know. Anyone still having this issue after updating?

    Now I'm guessing you can't receive this update if you are on the 8.1 preview? Because I have not received any update. Can anyone confirm that this finally gets rid of the "Can't Send" message issue!?!?

    After the update, “Can't Send" message is as prevalent as ever. I always thought it was a network issue as it happens after I've been somewhere with zero cell reception.

    I updated and this issue lasted till just 2 days ago. I restarted my phone and the issue is gone for now.

    FYI: There are some issues but a cold boot will fix them. While phone is on hold the power button down until the phone tuns off.( Note: do not use the slide screen to shut off). After shut down the phone should turn back on by itself and all the issues will be gone.
