    I've been caught up in the enthusiasm of the Icon release tomorrow. Now after calming down after a week I'm not sure.
    The 822 is a great device and I've had zero issues with it. I've had it for over a year. The Icon would give me a third row of icons plus a few on the bottom and increase the screen by about a half inch.
    I got to thinking do I really need or want extra icons. Everything I want is already fitting nicely as is.
    The upgraded camera is not a feature I need. My camera does fine. So I don't know. I might go "feel" it and want it. I admit that I tend to be obsessed by the latest and greatest gadget. I've resisted other's though.
    Yeah! I'm in same boat. With Black now on my 822 I'm really enjoying the new features especially the multitasking. This 822 has been rock solid for me since November 2012, gonna be hard to let it go.

    I'm on Amber and I already had no need in Access Point, I could change my internet settings right away
    As regard to your volume issues, same here bro. Every soft reset leads to decrease of volume and then I have to increase it by button.

    As to Black. It's ready to download. Georgia (caucasus) here.
    Good job, Verizon! I hope you won't miss 8.1 as well.

    I can't believe it! I got the Black update! I thought sure that when I switched to Straight Talk from VZW that I wouldn't get anymore firmware updates for my 822. WooHoo!

    When you have a few apps open, press and hold the back button. That's the multitasking screen, the apps have an "X" on top right corner now, so you can close them from there.

    It won't be. It only uses WiFi while downloading, and if the download doesn't complete it won't hurt anything.

    How does tethering work on our 822s? Is it different after this update?
    Thank you.

    Thank you for your replies.
    Here's another question:
    How long does it takes to update to Black from Amber?

    It seems that I cannot change my media volume (up or down) in the middle of playing videos. For instance, I open a video that was posted, and it is muted until I exit out of the video, turn up volume, and play again.
    Anyone else?

    Since Black, store updates are showing up promptly. I can now stop visiting the app updates thread and not have to do them manually.

    how to uninstall it?
    go to date, change year to 2150.
    Go to Access Point and it will ask you to uninstall. Do it.
    Change date again to right numbers.
    Turn off and then on your phone.

    Ok. 2 days with Black update and I think there is a problem with the energy consumption. Someone noted this?

    After Black update, getting error "Unable to connect to Xbox LIVE at this time. Please check your connection." when attempting to play AlphaJax. Other games connect to Xbox LIVE fine.

    Tried...
    ..."refresh" in Xbox LIVE
    ...turned off "Connect with Xbox" in games settings, and then turned back on
    ...uninstalled AlphaJax, and then re-installed AlphaJax
    ...powered down phone, and then powered back on
    ...pulled battery, and then reinserted battery and powered back on

    Do know what else to do?

    I resolved my own issue. Under date+time settings, I turned the set automatically switch to off, then changed the time zone to an adjacent time zone, and then was able to connect to Xbox Live. I then changed the set automatically switch back to on, and it continues to work fine.

    Update went smooth and now my OS version is 8.0.10517.150, firmware revision number is 3051.40000.1352.0042 but now I can't launch:

    App Folder
    euronews
    Here Maps
    I'm here
    Online-Translator.com
    Skype - uninstalled and reinstalled, but no avail. Still takes forever loading and fails.
    SoundHound
    Waze

    Games (not each of them have been tested):
    2020: My Country - lost all the progress, damn it
    Dredd vs Zombies

    All these apps and games were uninstalled and reinstalled, but it didn't help

    Extras+Info - I don't know how can I uninstall it

    It might be my subjective feeling, but installing apps takes slightly more time

    I'll keep you informed, if I find any solution or explanation

    //edit
    Weird thing is that I just downloaded and installed SIMS FreePlay and it doesn't load and launch too.

    Will wait another day if anybody will come up with any idea and then Hard Reset is the only solution (if you may call it a solution)

    ///update
    Hard Reset didn't help
