    Thanks for the info. I just updated tonight as well. It's great to have voice and data available at the same time!

    I just got it this morning. Can someone please tell me what this means? I've had the DT such a short time that I don't understand what advantage this update gets me. Thx!

    I just got the update and long pressing on the Google Search bar does not remove it. Not for me anyway, sadly.

    It will work. You can't long press the search bar like a regular widget. You have to long press on an open space on the home screen first, touch settings, then slide google search option to off. Back out and it's gone. It used to bug me at first that it was there, but then I learned to really like it. I would miss it now if it were not there. Funny how small changes settle in sometimes.

    This only works on the stock Google Launcher. Try long pressing on an empty part of the home screen. A settings option should pop up.

    100% correct. Long press on an open space on the desktop. You may have to move to a screen with more real estate (no icons nearby), since it sometimes thinks you're trying to pick up an icon. Settings option shown below.

    Then press settings and you get;

    Yes indeedy it works, Funny.... I always wanted that bar gone and now that it is l wonder if I'll miss it. I used to use the voice function for navigation. Hit it and just say " Navigate to" worked well.

    So, this update was to add functionality to allow voice and data at the same time, correct? Is there anything you have to do to enable it? I'm asking because I installed the update last night, but just now got off the phone and noticed that all the emails I had gotten while on the phone came in a couple of seconds after I hung up.

    Nope. It works as soon as the update completes. Try making a call then check an app that uses data like Facebook. Unsure why your email did not download until after the call was complete. Could just be a coincidence or an unrelated sync issue with your email client.

    Nope, it just happened again. I got five emails while on the phone, but none of them downloaded until after I hung up. This is for my corporate account which has the push setting, so they usually come in right away. I don't really care though, sometimes it goes screwy and the vibrate notifier goes off while I have the phone up to my ear. That is not pleasant ha ha, so I guess if it does this, that won't happen anymore :)
