    I'm experiencing many more call drops while driving in same places where there were no problems before the update. Anyone else?

    No call drops so far but signal strength seems to have gone down for me, or at least the reduced number of bars implies so. Internet speed has also gone down as per the speedtest results.

    Does this update enable internet calling feature of later versions of gingerbread?

    Does video chat using google talk count as internet calling? If so, I used it today.

    No, there is full VOIP/SIP calling support that was added to later versions of gingerbread, but the option to add internet calling account is not present under settings, which means it must have been removed by Sprint. Wonder if there is a way to re-enable it.

    Hey spudly, I still couldn't locate it.. Did you mean a persistent equal sign (=) key, since I dont have it on my swype and I did a press-n-hold on all keys and still didn't get any insert smiley option. Can you please tell me the orientation of the keyboard and surrounding keys of the key in question so I could locate it.
    Taylormah, see the enclosed attachment. While the typing/swyping on keyboard, press <this> to insert smiley.

    I finally got the update just morning noted just a little faster, but also notice battery drain is faster. I'm going to have to either keep plug handy or get another battery.

    Thank you spudly. That would be the menu key. Pressing menu key brings up the option to insert smiley faces in the default messaging app, but unfortunately since this is not a part of the swype keyboard but actually a part of the app, this option wont be there when typing in some other app. Swype seems to have removed the smiley faces key from their keyboard
