    I didn't like the Contact list in FroYo and how you couldn't sort by last name. I just prefer my contacts in LN, FN format. I also like the launcher bar at the bottom in GB better. The backgrounds in FroYo were easier on the eyes. /shrug.

    and with free Launcher Pro, you can change the dock icons and lots of other things.

    love this site for the icons: Browsing deviantART
    I disabled the horizontal home screen in Launcher Pro, wasn't my cup of tea....still a cool option though

    Has anyone else noticed that FroYo had all black backgrounds while in system/app settings menus, etc, while GB does not?

    I find it odd that, in GB, said backgrounds are now white in system menus and black in apps when the app settings end/don't scroll.
    This is readily seen in Launcher Pro Plus > Preferences > General Settings.

    Perhaps I can change this once I'm deodexed. <undecided.gif>

    Probably no more official updates, if you are rooted and willing to flash roms then probably.

    Liberty 3 -- too many roms too little time.

    I took the OTA Gingerbread "update" from my carrier. I have regretted it ever since. I, personally, DO NOT like it.

    It has several bugs. I have had to d load a camera app because it reverts back to the highest setting every time I close the camera. The wifi continually shuts off even though I have iit set to never sleep.

    I am not at all impressed.
