    I'm noticing that where it would normally say I have a day and so of battery remaining at this point, it's saying I have around 10 hours remaining. Ahh, well, maybe it'll improve over time.

    Same with me. I am on 85% battery and it's saying I only have 6 hours left.

    I too hope it resets after a few cycles.

    Same thing is happening to me since I flashed the Euro dev rom. If I don't align the phone correctly, it doesn't charge and the little light starts blinking.
    I have a DT-900 and I don't have any issues pre-update Rogers 1314 or post-GDR2 update Euro-Dev

    Update on my battery - the time remaining seems to go up if I check after a little while. About 75 minutes ago it was saying 6 hours left and now it's saying 11 hours left. I think the battery just needs to be calibrated again.

    it has always been like this. The longer your phone is idle. The higher the time will go

    I've notice a new feature but I'm not 100% sure if it was there before. When you go to your WIFI settings, underneath all the WIFI that your phone sees, you can press on "find nearby WI-FI" and it gives you a map with all the WIFI hotspots!!! Kind of cool!!!

    Updated last night, everything seems ok. Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere but saw 2 new options in IE: option to disable pictures and w Datasense now on board option to send URL"s to the service. I wonder if this would work in Tmo with devices like the Rogers 920.

    The setting is already put in place to automatically flip to silence as default.

    OK, I see how it works.
    I thought if you place the phone on the table with the screen down, the ringer will be muted and you won't hear anything.

    If enabled, does it do this even when using WiFi?

    Let's say you have the phone in your pocket, or hand, or on the table with the screen facing up. If the phone rings, you flip the phone. This will immediately silence the ringer.
    Honestly, I would have preferred the other behaviour I mentioned above.

    Edit: here is an explanatory video of the 'flip to silence'

    Updated last night....all in all I'm pretty happy....but I tested out the camera last night in my dimly lit living room and I gotta say, the quality was not so good. Very noisy and not very sharp....pre amber if I took the same pic the room would look crystal clear and bright....anybody else find that low light photos were better pre amber??

    OHHHHHHHHHHH....so it has to already be initiated or in the process of ringing....well that doesnt really help...lol

    Exactly. I bring my phone to meetings and our impression would make much more sense.

    Thanks for clearing that up

    Haven't tried it and not sure if it would work on Tmo anyway but I expect it would work for cellular data only as that's one of the main features of Datasense.

    I noticed that as soon as one of my friends texted me after I updated my phone. Really not liking that. The alert tone for notifications is different too. Not fond of the new sound either. It's like that and the message tone are basically the same but much faster and not as loud.

    Its not just you, i've also noticed the picture quality is inconsistent...sometimes its grainy/blurry and others its very good. Even at times with the Pro, i will see the preview looking great then i take the picture and its almost all black?...weird. I switched back to the default camera and noticed the inconsistency of blurriness is still alive and well which sucks.

    Also to add, my battery like some of you have said is burning out faster than pre-Amber.
