    Yes, I miss the favorites feature, can't figure out how to get it back.

    Also, SMS text messages getting alot of "not sent" errors, sometimes the flagged error messages get through, sometimes not.
    Any help appreciated on both these issues.
    Thanks

    I also want the "frequently called" feature back! I don't understand why they got rid of it!

    Not sure if everyone is experiencing this but the miss call notification LED doesn't blink anymore. All my other notification works but just the miss call won't blink. Any work around this?

    I've read on another forum that typing is now laggy and I am experiencing it as well, also launching programs and going back to the home screen lags a little too.

    Has anyone else noticed that Birthdays/Anniversary dates previously enter on individual contact entries have gotten screwed up since upgrading to GB?

    One of my contacts had a "Birthday" indicated as 4/12/2008. After the upgrade, it is appearing as 1207958400000 but if i open the contact in edit mode, this data isn't available for update. In fact, when creating a new contact this field is no longer part of the contact record.

    Because I had a birthday widget I am able to access the birthdays that appear there; the dates appear correctly there, BUT when I go in to edit from the widget and just make a random change in order to save the record, the date format IN THE CONTACT record changed to 2008-04-12 and I can't seem to figure out how to get this to appear on the contact record in the correct MM/DD/CCYY format.

    Any ideas!

    The other feature I miss from froyo is the battery meter. In froyo one could easily see how much charge is left easily. In GB one has to figure it out by enlarging the graph. Is there anyway to add some information about the amount of battery left in the graph?

    Anyone else experiences losing 3G signal from time to time and have to do a reboot to pick up the signal? Ever since the Gingerbread update, I lose 3G signal like every other two days and I have to do a reboot to pick up the signal again.

    Yes. I have 3 X's on a plan. Two are acting similar to your post. One of them is also having GPS problems with locking in. I also miss the favorites menu. There are nice changes, too

    I have not yet experienced that, but I have noticed that, while I'm right down the street from a 3G tower, sometimes my 3G and signal strength meter indicator color changes from BLUE to WHITE, then back again - in between downloads. Never consistently, and it seems to have nothing to do with 1X as that mode I rarely see.

    Anyone seen that? What does it mean?

    So far I really like the GB release. At first it was quite buggy until a few reboots and then it started behaving pretty well.

    Yes, this is happening to me on every missed call, and it SUCKS!!!

    I also have tried to override with the FREE "Blink" market app to force it to blink after missed call - to no avail.

    I see this too and the only work-around I have found so far is to go into each of the contact that I want to make "Favorite" and then check the STAR in the upper right hand corner. That makes them show up in the favorites list.

    Seems like the frequency in which you make/receive calls from contacts no longer contributes to the favorite list.

    They do have/display the "Most Likely" list, which so far has been inconsistent. It's more like "Last few" rather than the most likely.

    Found an answer to my question from Droidforums.Net

    White means you don't have a fully dedicated connection because you're phone is still syncing with Google and color means you have a fully synced dedicated connection.
