I ran across this thread over on the "Official Motorola" unofficial support forum (Per the forum admin, Matt, it is apparently intended to be user to user support, not Motorola to user support)...just a simple online petition to let Moto know how we feel about Blur. In the [unlikely] scenario that you love Blur and don't want the option to remove it, please feel free to create your own an online petition...I just happen to dislike the drawbacks of Blur more than I like the benefits, so I promote my viewpoint. https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/34336?tstart=0 It only has 95 posts now, but I know there are more people than that who would prefer a Blur-less android experience (or at minimum the option for it). It's no coincidence that *nearly* every problem we're having with the X seem to stem from Blur UI implementations. And to be honest, it's not that I don't like some of the things Blur does, I just hate that we don't have the choice when things go wrong, i.e. the SMS lag, general UI lag (especially when unlocking), lack of the Android quick contact menu, inability to fully delete contacts history, etc. that are all seemingly related to the Blur experience. Sorry if this is redundant...feel free to ignore the post as you see fit. Mods feel free to move, close, etc as needed.
