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....

Just installed it. Internet Explorer on the phone is being really slow though, anyone else experience this? EDIT: Actually my wifi connection seems to be slow on the phone overall...

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 installed the updated and all is well! I called my cell from my office phone, let it go unanswered. No missed call tone! Finally!

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.

Group MMS works for me. I sent a text to a group and all replies come to the same message thread.
