The calendar's look and feel as well as functionality has vastly improved, making the user experience much more enjoyable and a whole lot less frustrating, I am now able to change calendar views, add events, and even change calendars all with one click.

Are we unable to link contacts now?  I've never been able to get twitter people and existing contacts to sync so I had to do it manually.  Now all the manual setups I did are missing and I can't find a "link" button.  Anyone know now to get those to work?  In the twitter for android I have it set to sync with contacts.

The old method is gone but you can still do it.

  1. go to one of the contacts you want to link
  2. then press menu
  3. then press edit
  4. then from there press join
  5. screen pops up with suggested contact or show all contacts to link.
  6. choose that contact
  7. then save

...let me know if you have any issues.

The contact pictures update to current facebook profile pictures. I remember always having a problem with that in the past.

I don’t understand why we have 2 fixed icons at the bottom that are now virtually identical in functionality. The contacts and phone icons do bring up the exact same window they just select a different tab within that window. Seems like a waste of real estate to me.

The calendar looks nice but a lot of wasted space at the top just to give you a couple of buttons!

The only real issue I have found with the update so far is Motorola widget for the “Contact quick tasks”. If you create a widget for a contact and want two display two items, like home phone, and work phone, the picture of the person is almost eliminated and two LARGE buttons exist instead. This is really irritating since I have multiple home pages that consist solely of these contacts.

Those icons at the bottom aren't "fixed". You can replace the icons in the

dock with others if you like.

I've noticed improved side scrolling performance in all email (like when I get my Newegg newsletter).  It was very difficult to scroll sideways before the update.

The Contacts button always opens Contacts. The Dialer widget always opens whatever you were looking at last in the Dialer. So if you were looking at Contacts, they will operate the same. Both of them can be replaced with other buttons (only the Launcher icon is fixed). You can make a Dialer shortcut that only opens the keypad if you like.

Yeah, not the best. I think putting them horizontally works best.

Still having the sync icon in the notifcation bar. My GMAIL is not being pushed to the Stock GMAIL app. If I goto    Setting ==> Accounts and look at my 2 gmail accounts the last time that it was sync was approximately 2hrs ago.. I can send a test message and it never arrives in the stock Gmail App.
