    What I see:

    YAY!!!
    - My Free Memory went from 44.5MB max with OS .76, now it's at 49.6MB
    - Camera is faster, about .5-1 second lag after pressing shutter
    - Media Player allows you to scroll through the progress bar in a smoother and more refined fashion. And, the button doesn't disappear at the end of the progress bar.
    - Media Player is faster
    - Application Center icon is changed.
    - While listening to music on headphones (bluetooth in my case) and a call comes in, the phone screen doesn't disappear. Tried it a few times and it's worked well all those times. No more going to home screen and pressing green phone button to display the phone screen in this mode.
    - If using media player and phone rings, you talk and connect like normal. Returning to your media (automatically happens still) resumes play, but a message comes up saying that playback cannot occur during phone calls.
    - Browser is FASTER in both loading pages and accelerometer
    - Contacts have a blue background.
    - While screen is locked, pressing any key doesn't bring up any message to press the unlock button. Still locks/unlocks as normal.
    - Reboots fast with QuickPull/SoftReset/Battery Pull.

    NOOOO!!!!
    - Bluetooth headphones don't work with video player!!!!
    - Mute button does not toggle between ring or vibrate when screen is locked
    - Everytime you plug in to your PC to charge/sync the media player will need to rescan... even if you make no changes to the microSD card


    That is all so far.

    I have installed the software onto my computer and deleted the vendor.xml

    When I open desktop manager it does not immediately recognize the new OS

    So I go into application loader and select update software it then shows me the version I currently have installed and 4.7.0.83 and asks me to select which one I want installed so I select .83 it then tells me that there is no software update required for my phone....

    Any help?

    Try removing your internet connection...and I didn't have to remove the vendor file seeing as how it's a verizon based upgrade.

    I beleive I read somewhere that the desktop software still reaches out to the internet to check for versions, I would suggest unplugging or disabling the Network Connection of the computer and trying again.

    this is what I had to do to get .76 installed.

    I noticed that on that when I hide/move icons so I only have 16 showing that it no longer scrolls with my finger when I drag it on screen.

    Also, key rate - didn't it just used to be slow/medium/fast. now there's medium fast and medium slow. Or was that always there and I'm dreaming?

    "I noticed that on that when I hide/move icons so I only have 16 showing that it no longer scrolls with my finger when I drag it on screen."

    That sucks. I kinda liked this feature.

    Anyone notice any improvement in call quality? I get complaints of being hard to understand/hear on my Storm now (running .75 Official) and am hoping this call quality improves dramatically.

    Lol...not a lot of people I can call at this hour...I may have to wait till tomorrow to see if there's any quality improvements. I do know once I enhanced treble on the handset- it behaved a little better as far as reception went (but that was under .75)

    I hope this is not a stupid question, but when I have updated my phone from say 75 to 76 i have had to do a restore and use the backupfile I created. is this always normal in order to receive all my settings? I lost my password keeper passwords, browser disapeared, app center dissapeared and so did facebook. Should I expect to do this all the time? Sorry about typing, it sucks to type on your back with your laptop on your chest.

    Totally bummed that bluetooth audio is disabled in video playback.

    There may be a standby mode. Left the phone for a few minutes untouched and it was "turned off," and had to press the power button to get it on.

    Um... Its definitely running slower than .75 was for me. Transitions are terrible from screen to screen and the loady icon stays on for longer than usual. I'll try a battery pull.
