    You know, this being my first 'droid, I decided to try out the phone as is. I do have some rants, but mostly LOVE this phone. As pointed out in the article (and I'll have to do more research to learn more about this,) there is a bit of wonkiness with the contacts. I mean, honestly, I have no need to add every facebook friend I have to my list of contacts. If there's someone there that isn't already a contact, I'll add it; don't need the phone doing that for me. That said, I did spend some time updating my gmail contacts: deleted many and updated/added numbers and addresses as applicable. Now if I can just keep gmail from adding every recipient and a group email to my contacts, that will be awesome.

    one of the best features of blur (and its really a feature of android) is that you can choose to ignore it. Ill admit, the social integration part of it isnt all that. but the good thing is its unobtrusive

    If I choose to just add my Google account to my Atrix (which I'm getting in a few days) and skip the Facebook/Twitter integration, when I download the full Facebook apps from the Market and sign in through those will my Facebook contacts sync with my phone contacts like Blur? Or will they just stay in the app?

    Blur is an unmitigated disaster for contacts. I use Exchange, and it absolutely will not correctly sync and display my contacts. I finally installed Improved Email to replace the default contacts and email client, and got things working again. Were it not for that, I would return the phone and not allow it to be purchased within my company.

    This is an awesome phone that s absolutely harmed by Blur. Moto needs to give up and move on.

    I posted over there too.

    I'd agree that it either needs to be:

    Done right

    Made 100% optional

    Remove completely

    Anything else is half assed and really diminished the overall execution of a great device.
