    Hi everyone, I have a Hero purchased 2 weeks ago and have a small gripe/query. The phone itself rocks and am pretty impressed with it, however when I click the people shortcut and go to flick thru my contacts, the list doesn't flow like it should. I only have just over 30 contacts in there so it's not a huge list by any stretch of the mind. When I give the screen a "big flick" as it were to provide a continuous scroll from top to bottom, the list sticks momentarily and judders a bit. Anyone else have this problem? If so does anyone know how to fix it? I have tried a reset etc and killed apps and all that jazz and still it does it. I have no such problems anywhere else though.

    Your help is always appreciated......thank you.

    Mine judders if it's currently doing a sync with facebook or google contacts. My (work) hero with facebook and google sync disabled is fine and smooth.

    disable facebook by:

    contacts > updates and events > click menu > select data connection settings > untick update notifications automatically

    disable google contact sync:

    settings > data synchronisation > google > untick contacts

    I think that just disables the notifications?
    I just haven't signed in to a facebook account on that phone - so it isn't picking up contact photos and status updates for people. I guess just not linking people to their facebook accounts would do the same job :)

    Thanks guys. I don't want to lose any of my features etc. I like the idea of havin my contacts synced with FB, not so bothered about google like. I love the phone and am not experiencing any lags like this anywhere else so it is slightly annoying. Maybe the highly anticipated update will fix?
