    The main problem that I am having right now is that my 3G indicator sometimes changes to 1x! I am also occasionally having some audio problems with the sound quality of my phone calls, however, just fyi! These problems have continued even though I reverted back to ESE81 and then got OTA 1 of 2 (FRG01B, which is what I am currently running)!

    I really dislike 2.2 after having it for 2 days now. I've noticed the UI is prettier and smoother (big whoop), but that came with the following tradeoffs:

    - Had to download and configure an SMS app since the default layout is now hideous and overly cluttered.
    - Had to make room for another widget on my main homescreen to toggle vibrate / silent modes (Silent Toggle Widget is great for this, just FYI).
    - Browser keeps reloading current page whenever I switch to another app even for just a second.
    - .com key is gone from URL entry keyboard
    - Annoying TAB key cuts the spacebar in half when you're typing in any text box that has more text boxes after it.

    Plus a few other little things I'm forgetting. I also haven't noticed any increase in the speed of the browser (wasn't that supposed to be one of the main benefits?). I don't understand why they would mess with things that were fine in 2.1... they turned a bunch of "features" into "annoyances".

    Edit: The ONE fix I was hoping for didn't even happen. 2.1 caused my auto-correcst to capitalize lots of common words (What and You, for example), and it still does that.

    Edit 2: If you hit the search button in Contacts, the keyboard doesn't come up until you tap in the box even though the cursor is already there. Wtf mate... not sure how they could accidentally screw that one up lol
