So my wife got a grey 822 after seeing my white one and she does not have the alphabet shortcuts in the app list. I read that you had to have 40 apps apparently but I had the shortcuts from the first use of my phone which had way less than 40 apps. She now has 41 and still no shortcuts. Anyone know what I am missing here?

this is most definately a bug. Did anyone solve it ? i havent installed any extra apps and it appeared all of a sudden. After it crashed and rebooted. Other forums say it appears after 40 apps some say 45 it is totally random and not a useful addition to the menu system. I already know my alphabet and can work out it starts at A at the top and I am guessing here but Z is at the bottom. To insert 26 extra icons simply slows down the scrolling. mmm 'almost a rant' but I am frustrated with it ! any help ?

So it's more like swipe, tap, tap, tap - to open an app right now.
Without indexing it is - swipe, swipe, swipe, swipe, tap - to open an app.Patient Windows Phone User since October 2010 till cores and apps do us apart.

The reason they limit it to 46 apps and above is because if you have less than that, its pretty silly to have them. You end up with half the items on that list just being the letter squares.
A letter box for a letter category with one item starting with that letter? Pretty unnecessary.
