    I did as a matter of fact. I haven't seen this much bloat since I watched the detectives on CSI fish a body out of the river! I didn't know that much useless crap could fit in one place. Oh well, maybe I will try removing the stock contacts as well since it's useless. I will break it til it works! As a sidenote, while driving home using the car dock, i noticed two things. 1st, when the phone fully recharged it turned itself off. 2nd, in navigation, why does the screen ficker back and forth from dim to bright every 2 seconds? That didn't happen on Froyo.

    Same thing happened to me, its something you froze (well duh lol) but it was so long ago that this was released and I fixed it that I can't remember.It was something that either I didn't know what it was or something that looked like bloat and wasn't. I have voice search freezing all the time now.

    Elite, it's nothing I froze.. I flat out deleted it. :)

    I also noticed something else this morning that wasn't happening before GB. If I want to share a picture, if I choose email as the option, it tells me it can't find any accounts on the phone. It's not seeing my Yahoo account on K9 like it did with Froyo.

    To anyone reading all the negativity in this thread about this phone, regardless of it's pitfalls, I actually love the phone. The size is what gets me I think. I do dearly miss my unlocked bootloader on my D1 though. It made fixing errors like these mentioned easier to do on your own without a lot of hassle. Give me a 4.3" screen on an unlocked phone and I am all in. Otherwise, X2 til it dies.

    More post GB issues...

    1. Auto brightness hit and miss. Does not always adjust correctly when waking the phone. Toggling the phone off/on again corrects the adjustment. It looks like the service that handles this does not wake up in time to react.

    2. Phone idle / cell standby ratio 5:1. In Froyo the ratio was about 1:1. Not sure this is a real problem but plenty of folks are already crying about it. On mine, phone idle now burns more battery than the display, but overall battery life is the same or better than Froyo.

    3. Direct Dial and Direct Message shortcut mischief. Direct Dial causes the contact storage service to loop and lay waste to the battery. Direct Message causes incoming texts to queue until the next phone reboot. A reboot is required to clear either issue. Best to avoid these features.

    My screen freezes at times when the screen is turned off. I press the power button and nothing. I have to take out the battery while my DX2 is still on, just the screen wont turn on at times. :(

    I've also been having some problems with messages at times I wont reserve any till an hour or two after the other person replies. I've tested it out with a few friends in class and it took quit some time to reserve their texts.

    New issue I have just noticed in the past couple of days... when I go to redial a number from my recently dialed contact list, if I press the green phone handset (which ordinarily would immediately dial back the number that called me), I will get a random recent phone number instead of the intended. This doesn't happen all the time (like just now when I went to check the behavior), but it has definitely happened a few times to me so far. If I select the contact, that seems to work fine.

    The next time it happens check your battery usage and see if there's a process called RLID burning more than 2%.

    I will look for it if I encounter it again. So far, I haven't had a re-occurrence. What is the RLID process, and why would it effect that?
