    Anyone getting the problem of Facebook display pictures not appearing with contacts? And also when you add a new contact you can't link it with a facebook friend?

    Hmm, seems to have semi worked. When I click the refresh icon in the contact I want to link. It brings it up. But only to contacts A,B,C,D.

    Solved, you just have to wait a while

    Well had it for over a day now and find that the memory is being used up fast by the system re startig apps like Footprints, Peep and messages just after I kill the them. They just will not stay unloaded. So I have like 50m left of system memory and that gets used up fast by the other apps I use. Used to have at least 100m on the old 1.5.

    Anyone else notice this, or is is not an issue I should not worry about.

    I noticed a rapid memory usage... mainly because I installed a load of apps that weren't available cos I was on 1.5!!

    If I change the date will I need to check for 2.1, if so how do I do this, or will I get a message automatically - how soon will I get message once date changed....

    (Does 2.1 allow bluetooth file transfer??)

    I know there are soooo many questions....

    thank you

    SM

    Once you set the clock forward <settings> <date and time> to say another month you should get the message instantly. Accept the down load and let the phone reboot fully. Once that happend on mine, I got a new message to upgrade again to the full update.
    Should also now work with blue tooth as well.

    Hmm, I put my month forward to August and straight away a message came up to do a system update. I did this and the phone updated and then rebooted, but it's still on version 1.5. This partial update has given me the 'System software update' menu, but when I click on 'Check now' it tells me that my phone is up to date. Any ideas on how to coax it to download the actual 2.1 update?

    Well it seemed to reset itself back to the correct date after the update, but I did try putting the date forward again and then back to the auto setting, but with no luck. I'll try messing with the date again, combined with a reboot or two, later.

    I still have not received the pre-update notification. I have changed the date to a month forward, but still nothing...its been a few weeks and i have changed the date so many times!

    Any suggestions?
