    It won't recognize orientation, so I'm stuck on widescreen.

    They got rid of messages app!!! I loved using that for Facebook chatting!! Easier than opening the fb app.

    I miss the messaging app, too. Much better than the rather terrible Facebook app.

    Isnt skype supposed to be available for messaging offline?? I haven't been able to download as am in Lesotho and after 3 days am at 23%. However, the messaging app for me was totally sporadic in terms of function. some messages would show and others would not. but if skype doesn't allow offline messaging, that is a total downgrade!

    I think I do remember reading somewhere that messaging would be folded into Skype. I'll try it put and get back to you.

    Looks like messaging is done through Skype now. If you go into the people hub, the messaging option you get is through Skype. Ive not tried yet. I wonder if the person being messaged has to have Skype to get the message.

    I'm noticing that inter explorer is having trouble recognizing text boxes. Sometimes on wpcentral I'll go to type a message, touch inside the text boxing, and the keyboard engages and then immediately disengages. Anyone else getting this? Only work around I've come up with is to type a bunch of letters really fast and the keyboard will then stay engaged. Them I delete the letters and type the message.
