    The 1.5.6 update will not read phone numbers with dashes in them... if you edit your contacts in your gmail account it will update to your phone and contacts will show up... just remove all "-" in the numbers. This is happening on most phones with 1.5.6

    Thanks for whoever posted that when starting a new thread to send a message to some one it doesn't work but if you go into contacts select the contact then select to text them it works.

    Boot Loops: I don't know about the boot loops. I have not had that occur on any of my test builds of this version.

    Theme Manager: There have been some issues across all miui builds. Try applying the theme after unchecking 'other'. If that does not work, try removing excess garbage in your /sdcard/MIUI/theme folder. You may be able to just remove the preview images and it work fine. There have been different results with different builds. I only have 1 theme downloaded and did not have any issues.

    SMS: this is an issue across all Miui builds. The Chinese devs messed this up. There are rumors that a fix is coming from China, but I don't know for certain. It will be fixed next week doesn't help much. Here are 3 fixes that have been reported to work on other builds.

    1. Cheap fix: Enter phone number manually for sending texts, make sure number has no spaces or '-'

    2. Ugly fix: Change all of the numbers in your contact list to remove all spaces and '-'

    3. No-fix Fix: Use another mms app, handcent, chomp, etc

    Another way for txt is to find the person in your contacts and click on them then click SMS.

    Another fix is installing the "Contacts Clean-up" app from the market. Batch formats your contact phone numbers.

    Contacts Clean-up | AppBrain Android Market

    I would suggest logging into gmail, and backing up or exporting your contacts first, precautionary measures.

    No issues here though.

    Cannot make or receive calls. Well I technically can but there is no audio. Have changed all my contacts and tried raising the in call volume. I don't even get a dial tone.

    Really?? I may have to look at it then. I haven't installed the miuiandroid build, but I helped TreyM get started with porting it. He actually used a few of my files from previous builds as a base. The main difference is that he used the miuiandroid english packs and I used the miui.us english packs. (If you do a diff between his zip and mine you will see very few files are different besides those)

    AFAIK, miuiandroid did not solve any of the bugs mentioned in my OP because they are all issues from the china source that neither miuiandroid nor miui.us have access too. The OP in the miuiandroid forum mentions all the same bugs that I mention in this thread, and people in the miuiandroid forums are reporting the same issues on his build there.

    You can use whichever port you want to, but I would ask that you create another thread for the miuiandroid port if you want to post bug, just so that any issues in the the different english packs don't confuse people with posting bug reports.

    Just throwing in my experience with the contact issue, and by all means if Im wrong please correct me! If you go to the programs section and erase all the data stored and re sync your Google account all the contacts function properly. SMS does not give the "not a valid recipient message". Also be sure to cut auto sync off before you erase the data as your Google account might sync your empty contacts list. If you want you could even remove the account and then re added it after you do the contact wipe. This worked for me so hopefully it will work for someone else having this issue.

    One other thing I noticed is that restoring my contacts via the MIUI backup tool seemed to cause this issue so there might be bug in there somewhere, but as Charles Barkley says "I may be wrong, but I doubt it lol"

    Also I have not had any force close issue or boot loops with this port. I wiped data and reformatted before installing so if your having issue's do like the devs say and wipe and install clean.

    Also on a side note I don't post on here regularly, but I have been around learning from this awesome forum and hopefully one day I can get on the level of the many great dev's here and create my own rom lol. But I would like to say that MIUI is awesome! I have been using it for awhile now and the gingerbread addition is great! A big thanks goes to all the developers that have spent countless hours keeping this rom working and awesome to use! Its nice to have the feel of the iPhone but with the functionality and openness of android. I'm a MIUI and Android fan for life! There is now way I can go back to the lock down of the iPhone and its countless minimal upgrades they release every couple of months, but that is another topic that I wont expound on sooooo. Thanks guys for your hard work!

    Greetings,
    This is my first go at miui so I have a couple questions.

    First, I'm having trouble getting swype installed, is it supported?

    Also, in settings I have my voicemail set to google voice, but I'm having trouble with the app itself, are there issues with it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit : I got Google voice working lol. Still no swype love though.

    I have gotten swype to install. I had to remove all versions of swype, reboot my phone, download the installer again. Install swype.

    If it still has problems registering your devices, reboot your phone and reinstall with the same installer.

    If you can get the swype keyboard to come up but not work swyping (just a blue rectangle comes up around the keyboard instead of entering text), long press on the input box, set the input method to the android keyboard. Then long press the input box again and set the input method to swype.

    Thanks! Reboot did the trick, I didn't even think about it since the installer kept saying it hadn't generated a license.

    it comes with the miui rom. you might be able to pull it out of the rom and install it on a different rom but it might be tied to the framework of the rom itself not sure but its worth a try.

    You can try titanium backup. However, miui may not agree with some apps restored that way. AFAIK, you cannot use miui backup on any rom other than miui. You cannot restore ANY system data with TB. If you are going to use TB, I would recommend restoring 1 app at a time and then verifying it works and that you do not get any launcher FCs (most common issue resulting from using TB).

    When I switched to Miui the first time, I re-downloaded all of my apps via the market and reset up everything. I was able to restore the data on the most important ones, but almost all of them I just reset the settings the way I wanted them. It is a hassle, but with Miui backup, you should only have to do this once.
