IF the 2.1 update doesn't address this issue, then it Motorola is utterly worthless.
Yes, I know about myLock, which still only works part of the time, but that has nothing to do with a manufacturer being able to get the damn phone to work out of the box without relying on everybody else just to do the basics. How many times do I want to do some other action in the phone app or hang up the phone only to have that @#$@#$ing lock screen get in the way and then fumble having to pulldown the alerts screen to try to get to the phone application to hang up the phone.
Seriously... were ALL the engineers in Motorola smashing drunk when they designed and tested the phone usage? Does this include the focus groups or did they not even bother with that step? Jeeez... It's 2010 and they can't get the basic phone app to work as well as the worst phone I have ever seen.
