    Go into settings ---> Battery and Data Manager---->data delivery---->social applications, and uncheck sync over wifi only...

    for some reason if your phone is set to sync social applications over wifi only, the check for system update will not work over 3g. I've confirmed that unchecking this will allow you to check for updates successfully. It doesnt mean the update will be available for you, but itll at least return something other than an error
    Thanks for the info. Still didn't work, but as you said it atleast seemed like it was checking (via 3G) and didn't bounce back with an error right away. *sigh*

    SouthernSaltine; Big issue for me.... The bottom hard buttons are now controlled by the light sensor (which is great i think) The problem is when you have the phone on the Multimedia station (bedside at night) the hard buttons stay on and are BRIGHT AS HELL! Anyone else find this to happen to them? It makes using my bedside dock worthless now as a bedside clock at night.. I got to get a fix...

    EDIT: Oh i am factory, un rooted running Official...

    This only happaning to me? Anyone?

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

    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



    I am sure there is more to discover - those were the first things I noticed
    How do you get to the profiles..I don't see anything under 'Settings'. Thanks.

    SouthernSaltine,
    I can't say that I'm having the same problem as you since I don't use my phone as an alarm, but my hard buttons don't seem to light up at the appropriate times. They do work, and they are very bright, but there were times last night when I thought that the lights should be on and they weren't. Odd and annoying.

    I noticed that after the update my proximity sensor is not working (screen is not going dark when phone is held up to ear). Is anyone else having this issue and does anyone know how to fix it? Thanks.

    NmdX - If someone has answered your first issue - oh well, try one of the following to switch to home launcher++ Home Manager, Home Switcher or Launcher Switcher. Tried Home Launcher, liked it.

    A minor annoyance though, using Swype, the keys aren't as responsive. I especially have problems with the space key.
    Agree on the swype. Thought is was me.

    Unrooted DX but I didn't wait for the OTA I did the manual (first time even attempting such a thing, I'm rather proud it worked). Maybe that as a mistake. Anyway...here's what I'm noticing.

    Don't know if this is a bug or a goofy feature, but now long pressing the "period" on the keyboard requires you to hold your finger down and slide to the punctuation you want. If you lift your finger, like in Froyo, you get a "+".
    --Yes! this is the most obnoxious thing in the world! And long presses move super fast too you almost can't tell what you've selected. I tired going back to swype but I like the keyboard. I will say the cursor/pointer thing is so much better than the "target" of froyo.

    --My physical buttons, I now see they are controlled by the light sensor, are ridiculously bright in low light. I wish I could adjust this...

    --Sometimes when I remove my phone from it's car dock the speakerphone activates. Only started today and I use my dock a lot. Always with an aux cable. Only way to deactivate speakerphone is to call something and quickly unclick it then end the call. Annoying quirk.

    --I have yet to notice any difference to Blur at all. The graphics on the wifi control widget are...sleeker...maybe? I did notice the if you slide your finger up from the launcher dock it will display all of your home screens (Like Leap in HTC sense). Guess this makes up for removing the quick select sceen change keys.

    --Anyone know of a way to change the background color on the bottom dock? I miss the transparent Froyo scheme. The flash of white at the bottom just doesn't work.

    --One major question though: sometimes on Froyo, I would lose all data connection. I would have full signal but the "down" arrow in my 3G was stuck on. The only way to fix this and restore data was to power off or Airplane mode (which at one point took 5 minutes to activate). No rhyme or reason just like it was stuck in a function it couldn't escape. Now, on GB, the "up" arrow is stuck and I get the same results. Any thoughts on this one?

    Overall I like GB. Much faster, nice animations, LOVE the notification bar. Just a few small tweaks...

    One thing im happy about is that now the camera recognizes a photo taken in portrait and uploads it in that orientation. Before you would take it in portrait and it would upload to facebook in landscape.

    Unfortunately we dont get that for video.

    I really miss the clipboard history that we had on Froyo. Other than that, I'm happy with the update. My X is faster now, and the UI looks *much* better.

    As I have stated in this thread (somewhere lol), it's just the default nature of the car-dock. Some coder was lazy and didn't add the code to turn OFF speakerphone once removed from the cardock.

    You notice no difference? The animations, the widgets, the new color scheme, new launcher, to name a few


    --Anyone know of a way to change the background color on the bottom dock? I miss the transparent Froyo scheme. The flash of white at the bottom just doesn't work.
    Sadly, this is just a part of the phone. Rooting and Rom's can easily fix this. Or just switch to a new launcher all together

    Perhaps there is a program hogging data? When you see the "down" arrow, that is indicating a download. Or your phone is pulling data from the network. When you see the "up" arrow, that is indicating your phone is sending data. So either some program of yours is syncing the hell out of your phone, or you have a bad unit!

    Has anyone experienced a problem with clicking a phone number in the default browser? 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.

    I've had that when clicking a # for a conf call in a meeting notice. Annoying. Worked in Froyo.

    Thanks Terry! I've been using home switcher, but on your recommendation, I tried the others and they all do the same thing, switch me back to ADW when I hit the home button.

    Maybe an update to each of the switchers to handle GB is what is needed?

    Again, thanks and welcome to the Forums!

    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!

    So I was contemplating a factory reset to get rid of the sync icon, but it appears to have gone away on it's own (sort of). I had two Yahoo email accounts on my phone. I deleted both, and re-added one of them, and now the sync icon is gone!
