Is this a Froyo issue?

With 2.1.1 I had functional "contact" shortcuts on the desktop. If I try to access them, I get an FC error - "android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly." So I deleted them and re-created them, with the same result.

So I created a shortcut to a "direct dial" contact, and that seems to function normally. However, it puts an "M" in the top left corner of the contact icon, and a little green phone handset in the top right corner. What good is it to have a picture of someone as their contact icon if you can't see their face?!?!?!

Is this a bug?

Don't think its a bug. I think it tells you what number you dialing M-mobile / H-home. That's what mine does.

Re: Is this a Froyo issue?

ok, that makes sense I guess, but why can't I create a shortcut to a "contact" on the desktop I wonder. Is that a bug?

When VZW releases the update officially, will we see it as an OTA update even though we flashed manually??

You should be able to. Hit shorts cuts and contact appears as 1 of the choices. Then choose your contact.

I'm sorry. I can indeed create a "contact" shortcut, but as I indicated above, when trying to access it there is an error with an associated FC.

I just checked mine and I had duplicate numbers for the same contact. 4 mobile numbers and 4 home numbers. I deleted the contact entered their info again and created the shortcut again with no issues.

Re: Is this a Froyo issue?

It seems to be a Home++ compatibility issue. It works fine with the default launcher.
