    Anyone else notice that the simple act of swiping the lock from left to right, to unlock the screen, is not nearly as smooth as it was with the previous version. It seems I often has to attempt to unlock it two or three times before I'm successful. This never use to be an issue. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I only used the lock for about 20 minutes, but it did seem very choppy to me.

    (I personally much prefer disabling the screen unlock. It's enough to have to press the power button. Pressing power AND swiping to unlock just seems redundant.)

    Yes I have to swipe much more often to unlock but I'm sure I'll get used to it...

    guessing just have to go a tiny bit farther across to get it to actually trigger now?

    eh just messed with it went all the way across straight line 3 times didn't work

    do you have to go across SLOWER now? ugg

    do you still have to unlock swipe if you use the pattern lock in that version?
    very annoying bug for those who need to lock down phone

    I bypass that crap unlocker by simply using mylock from the market.

    That's the reason I got it. Thr stock unlocl screen is so choppy and harsh, I done even want to see it

    I might have found the issue. If you are having this issue, is it happening when the phone is plugged in/charging?

    My phone on Froyo did it. I haven't had the issue on GB.

    No. It does it when it's disconnected.

    Ok, had a few more issues. Phone would freeze up every once in a while. Today lost all service; 3g, data and texting. Rebooted and everything restored. I called Verizon to see what they had to say, rep had me do a full google data backup. Then had me do a factory reset, he told me if the problem continues they would replace my phone. Something I did not realize that with google data back up not only did my contacts get restored my apps did as well.

    *damn autocorrect. Had to edit my post twice.

    Neither did I but the rep knew it would. He was surprised that it backed up my apps from the market.

    Just found out tonight at a Verizon Corp. store that they have gotten rid of all technical support people at the corporate stores in central NJ. If you need help, they tell you to call support. If support can't help, they send you a new (reconditioned) phone. To hell with the customers once again. They sell you a phone at top dollar, if it goes bad, they give you a used one; sell you unlimited data unless you want to tether (then twice the cost); even though you buy a phone, they restrict what goes on it (Verizon has had Google delete some apps they don't like) and lock it; sell you insurance and then double or triple the deductable after the fact and in spite of what they say about being sympathetic about rooting, take away the phones warranty if you do it. All this and the highest price for service in the area. Sorry for the rant, but I'm tired of being beat by them all the time. There are other alternatives...
