    And I love it :D

    A LOT of improvements, usability wise, can move around icons so they aren't alphabetical, move home screens around with ease, added world clock, smart alarm, and soo much more I love love love it!!!!


    ONLY one thing I HATE.

    And I need help fixing is - my text messages are now bubble mode like the iphone which I absolutely hate :( I got this phone because it didn't have that bubble mode..and the text size on everything is increased by like 2 or 3 points x-x

    but other than that I LOOOVE THE NEW ANDROID 2.2 omg

    I will try and hold off from upgrading as long as possible to avoid losing the current messaging app. I love it. I don't want generic ugly bubble chat... .:(

    And Hancent is the original bubble head. Thanks for trying to help me Kelmar--Just couldn't do anything with it.
    The only problem I had with my upgrade was the GPS wouldn't work whatsoever so I went back to stock and did an Odin upgrade which has my GPS working perfectly now. YAHOO!!!!! Now all I have to do is figure out how to make voice dialed calls on my bluetooth headset.

    I'm sorry, but that is about the strangest thing I've seen in these forums for a long time. I too hate the bubbles, but I sure as hell wouldn't do without the upgrade because of it.

    I agree. The great thing about Android is that you're not stuck with ANY of the UI changes. If you don't like the stock UI, change it with an applications. It shouldn't keep you from upgrading.

    And Handcent might be the original bubble-head, but they do have the "Android" style that's pretty much the old Android conversation style as well.

    I second this. I use handcent myself, much prefer it to the stock messaging app. The one downside is even after turning notifications off on the stock app you will get both hancent AND stock mms app notifications. You need to turn off "auto retreive" incoming on the stock app.

    They will likely have the same screen once upgraded.

    I updated, but I went back to 2.1. The GPS wasn't working, and now it's still not. Also, my accelerometer isn't working much either. Anyone else have these issues? Anyone know of a fix?

    Since you haven't described how you updated in the first place, nor how you went back to 2.1 or even which version of 2.1 you went back to, it's impossible to know what happened.

    since being on 2.2, i decided not to use advanced task killer. so far, its been pretty flawless, no lag. on 2.1, there was noticeable lag, and killing apps was the only fix.

    hi,

    so.. 2 questions for the new 2.2 EPICs

    1. For those that understand the GPS issue... did the 2.2 fix this issue?

    2. has anyone do the speed test? How did it compare to the EVO on 2.2?

    Thanks

    I updated as well , my battery seems to die extremely fast . With 2.1 my battery can last all day while listening to music and watching movies . With the 2.2 ROM I can only listen to music and by the time I get home I'm around 10 percent .
