    I am running the ota .596 and I use the dock as well, but the bottom keys on my phone still remain on. Is there a setting for this or am I just missing something?

    Got the official update - installed on a non rooted phone.

    Copied the Update file to the SD card - powdered off - held power and home - pressed the search key when the android guy came up . used the volume button to select install update. I got the file from a post at droid world.

    - The blue bar at the top is elegant - I like the new 3G symbol.
    - sliding between screens is very smooth.
    - Social Networking Widget - now your get "cards" that flip (ala album covers on a ipod)
    - 4 soft buttons at the bottom -
    1) Phone
    2) Contacts
    3) Text Messaging
    4) is the app drawer. You can have folders for your apps in the drawer now. I made one called "default" and selected all but the bloatware so I never have to scroll through them again.

    The trash can is now a bar at the top that appears when you need it.

    Under settings you have 3 profiles - Each one gives you the seven screens - effectively giving you 21 screens and 3 wallpapers to play with
    1) Home
    2) Work
    3) Weekend

    In contacts click the picture to bring up a short cut to text, call, email, fb

    I am sure there is more to discover - those were the first things I noticed
    THANKS for the idea of a default folder to get rid of bloatware, I am going to 'borrow" that

    Help, seems like when I make/ some time receive a call a few crazy things are happening after the update. My mute goes on by its self some times, also when I end the call my music apps go on automatically, some times just one but usually two , yea, that rap music at the meeting I went to was not good. I should have stayed on the leak I was on, I had only minor problems then

    Has anyone hexperienced a problem with clicking a phone number in the default browseyr? I used to be able to search for a business and then just click on the number and it would bring it up in the dialer. Now it just brings up the dialer, but the number is not inserted automatically. That is my one big gripe with GB as I frequently use the voice search to find a business and then just click on the number to call them while I'm driving. I hardly had to even look at the phone.
    Saw on another site - try this - long press phone number and copy, then long press where u want to put the phone number and hit paste.

    No more dedicated voicemail button in the dialer? That sucks.

    Since I got the OTA update on June 1, I've noticed that my DX turns itself back on after I shut it down. If I then shut it down a second time, it stays off. Anyone else experienced this issue?

    Long Press your 1 button on the dialer keypad. It's setup as a speed dial to voicemail by default. It should also have the voicemail icon on it.

    Also to change your speed dials, press your menu button while on the dialpad and select "Speed dial setup".

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think this happened to me last night. I believe I shut the phone down before bed, but when I grabbed it this morning, it was on. I'll have to do an actual test to confirm.

    Is there a way to get the app drawer to default to this group, or do you always have to select it (which is what I'm seeing).

    I was actually having this problem BEFORE the update while still on Froyo. I would select power off and it would just reboot instead of actually turning off.

    Just tried it now and WOW it powered off in like 2 seconds. On Froyo it would take like 5 - 10 seconds.

    The shutdown time is faster that's for sure. The problem is getting it to stay off. It doesn't happen each time but when it does the second time seems to be the charm. I think the Droids are becoming aware. Could this be Skynet? Judgment Day?

    I dunno if this is a GB issue or not, but maybe someone can help. Turned on google navigator today, and for some reason the mean lady turn by turn voice is gone and replaced with beeps. Looked all around settings and whatnot, can't find anything. Any help would be great.

    Really? Mine have gotten WAY brighter. Even while it was light out.
    They are brighter, WHEN they want to come on. I've been in a pitch black room and they don't come on. Very annoying.

    First, reboot the phone. Second, clear the cache for each of these apps.

    When all else fails, SBF back to Froyo and run the update again (if you're not interested in root).

    SBF instructions are in the ROMS, Rooting and Hacks section.

    Actually, worse than that for me. I use my X in the evening watching tv in a dark room, and the lights are needed but won't go on. Now, I just plugged it into my media dock while going to bed and BLAM..
    they go on like bright headlights. This is just not acceptable!
    Kinda crazy that they're acting this way, mine are the same. Do you set your brightness to automatic or manually set it to something? Wonder if that may help. I'll try that tonight.

    I downloaded GB after I had my Dx for a while and now my phone randomly loses all service. It didn't do this until I downloaded the update I will receive texts and calls but can't answer or reply to them and the only time I can get internet is when im on widow and the only thing that fixes it is a battery pull. What is wrong and what can I do to fix it forever

    I have noticed when taking a picture i no longer have the option to DELETE the photo (right then) that was just taken. used to i could touch the photo (before it disappeared and reverted back to the camera )and select delete. Now i have to wait, go into photo album and delete.. Is there a way to get this option back?

    Thinking back there was an option for "REVIEW TIME" that i don't see anymore?

    For me, if I tap on the screen after the little photo in the corner disappears, it will reappear and I can tap it and then hit the menu button and delete.
