    Haha, I wouldn't say 99.99% of tour users have 5.0 OS because my entire dads company of over 300 people just got issued verizon tours and none of them have 5.0 OS. I actually spoke with their IT guy to tell him to go ahead and help everyone install it cuz I didn't believe the big red would ever go through with it. lol. *insert foot here*

    :haha: Battery Time

    :haha: GMail Sync (contacts and deleted mail)

    :haha: AOL Mail Sync (deleted mail)

    :haha: Yahoo Mail Sync (deleted mail)

    :haha: PTT... (Software found in Application Center, device returns web error if you don't go to Options, PTT Options and Enable PTT, Will also require a phone call to VZW @ 1-800-2JoinIn since its not available on the web as of yet)

    :17: Boot Time is a bit longer (from 5.0.0.3## @ 6 minutes to 5.0.0.591 @ 11 minutes) and updated that hour glass in the pre-boot sequence
