A quick heads up to all you folks with the HTC Vivid. Word in our HTC Vivid forums is that the Android 4.0.3 update is starting to push out. And even better is that you're able to force the push by dialing *#*#682#*#*. It looks like it's a slightly newer version that the update that leaked a week or so ago (that's as good a reminder as any that "leaked" doesn't mean "official"), so it's got that going for it.
(Update: AT&T tells us that there's no update officially being pushed yet.)
You'll also be updated to Sense 3.6. It's not quite as sexy as the new Sense 4 in the HTC One line, but it's a nice happy medium.
So get your download on, and hit the link below for more from folks who have already updated.
