    Wifi uses more battery than it used to, I used to leave wifi enabled 24/7 (even when phone was in standby, I had wifi sleep disabled) and my battery would last over 24 hours, but since the last couple firmware updates having Wifi on consumes more battery than 3G, Don't know why.

    Then again I also cant send MMS anymore with Wifi enabled since the last 2 updates, so they messed something up lol.

    So its not really being discontinued, they're just changing the name and color? And judging by the name, I assume it'll come with ICS. So sounds like a chance for Cricket to make a fresh start and make new people think its a different phone. I don't like white phones myself, though.

    Did they make the wifi antenna strength better? I know mine isn't the greatest. Maybe that's why it uses more battery. Or it could be set to search for signal more often.

    Do y'all think they noticed all the bugs associated with ics and decided to go with gb? I say this because the leaked ics has Radio Shack apps on it.

    No I guess they didnt think it was worth releasing ICS on it but the high demand for 4.0 and higher likely is forcing them to release an official build

    In other words, you think they will release a full version of ics for the merc instead of a demo??

    Yeaaa its likely, a demo is made only to get a feel of the full release...so they are bound to release the full build soon, I think more customers would be attracted cause of this
