    Ok ICS is installed and seems to be (generally) running well.

    Some of the new features I like about the ICS Social Hub like deleting messages from the list screen without having numerous button presses.
    Other things like it always opens in feeds and I can't access my folders in my accounts really suck!

    As I use gmail and Exchange mail and want push all from one app I am stuck using the Hub, so no other apps won't do the same within one app :(

    Anyone managed to get the Hub to open on Messages rather than Feeds?
    More importantly, anyone know how on earth I can access my gmail folders and my Exchange folders?

    I am having a similar problem with the Social Hub. I have set up an MSN account on the Social Hub and it logs in ok. The green circle to say I am online is next to my username, but I cannot access my contacts screen. On GB you just clicked the username to see which of your contacts are online. When I click my username on ICS, it asks me if I want to log out. I cannot find a way to see or message any of my contacts.

    Has anyone else come across this?

    Same problems here:

    1. Social Hub won't default to opening in All Messages tab that shows a list of all my accounts

    2. Social Hub seems to have problems linking to Handcent when going via 'messages' button and jumps to random screen

    3. Dialer no longer has a proper contacts tab. The contacts option in a sub menu is just for dialling and not editing/texting

    As a result my dialer button is having to be replaced with 2 - one dialer and one contacts plus I am having to reface my social hub button with one for SMS and one for email. From 2 buttons to 4 us not exactly progress!

    As these are the features I use most and constantly it's very annoying

    Yes I noticed #2 as well.
    Has no one discovered how to access email folders in ICS social hub yet!?
    Seems mad to not support folders in an email application.

    Yes, same problem with Social Hub won't default to opening in All Messages tab, plus can't seem to add Chomp SMS to Social Hub

    Hate the idea of having to split phone and contacts. Shame cause ICS looks nice but these are real, useful features that we've lost.
