Is battery life really that much better? Can someone go about their daily routine and tell how much of a difference the battery life is?

I am pretty much in agreement with everyone's feelings about this update. I was hoping that 6.1 would be a part of it. I did get a response yesterday morning from T-Mobile. It's pretty funny(below). It looks like they didn't even know about it after it was actually available, just a rumor it would be soon. I got this after we all found it!

How ironic: Their screen shots on the Update page all still have the large E in the center. :)

Oh, don't get me wrong, I do want it... its just funny that the very update they're advertising gets rid of it, that's all. Someone in QA must've fallen asleep. :D

Yeah, exactly! Those having issues with the icon, do you mean the large one supposedly removed or the little one over the signal bars?

WOW has anyone compared the registry yet?

i just got done with it and alot has changed!!!

im testing a few things now. if you know alot about registry editing i suggest you compare both the old and new regs.

appearently microsoft/t-mobile didnt tell us that there is a s**t load more support for bluetooth models now, more security, etc.

all the minor details are important to know as well -___- look like we will have to find them ourselves lol

I recently upgraded and think it has helped the phone run better and the battery lasts a little longer. I went on a road trip today and the big "E" showed up in the tool bar at the top while I was roaming.
