    I think this feature has been absent from new Droid phones for a while. I know my D1 had it but when I was setting up a D2G for someone that option was no longer available.

    I will also concur that the the "Email Engine 2.3.6" being frozen caused my texts to not generate notifications.

    I'm getting contacts storage FC if I freeze Yahoo Mail Authenticator. If I try to deal with anything that pops out the contact options by clicking on a picture, I get a contacts storage FC.

    Unfroze Yahoo Mail Authneticator, worked fine.

    This is definitely one of those threads where we need a YMMV in all caps and bold at the very top. Heh.

    I don't think he's ever had the Yahoo Mail Authenticator listed. Although I could be wrong.

    just a heads up, has anyone else noticed that they dont have "cellular data" listed in their smart action rules after freezing the bloat?

    i ask because i noticed it yesterday when i was reading through the smart actions thread that i dont have an option to enable or disable cellular data, so i defrosted allllllll of the bloat that i had frozen and "cellular data" is now in my smart action rules.

    does anyone know which app prevents cellular data from showing up in the smart action list?

    Does anyone understand why the OS calls certain apps up all on its own? Took the plunge and rooted and have been checking running apps/processes and then freezing the ones that I likely will never use. But I don't get why for example, gotomeeting, slacker, social messaging and networking will get called by the OS, rather than me. It seems random to me. If you know why this goes on please let me know - Thanks.

    Do those apps get called even though they're frozen?

    No, that seems to prevent them from running. Just can't figure out why they were running without my starting them.

    This may or may not be worth noting but if you want to use the HDMI out, Webtop and Webtop Connector must not be frozen.
