    A lot of people (in other forums) as well seem to be having issues with voice recognition working properly and I am too this is probably one of my biggest gripes. Also the audio in while recording is pretty horrible. I was expecting a little more with an HD 720 video camera capable device but the sound that gets recorded sounds very distorted and like the video footage is being shot through a tin can.

    Yeah the voice control stock app just sucks. Since Google voice recog works fine I know it's just the app. I installed Vlingo yesterday and like it so far but haven't really used it that much.

    That's unfortunate about the audio issue

    What does the Mercury come with has the stock voice recognition application? Is it a Huawei proprietary thing?

    After rooting mine, that Voice Dial POS was the first thing to go.

    Yeah as soon as a one click or easy root comes my way, I'm ditching a lot stuff too. At least this phone has plenty of memory to help put up with crapware in the meantime.

    Yes, launcher does suck. I will replace it after a while. You can't sort the apps can you? Reminds me of Touchwiz in the way it handles those icons. Anyways I already put Swiftkey on.

    It's hard to type fast with two fingers on this thing just like it is with my Droid RAZR. Evo handled it much better and according to my girl, the Nexus does pretty well with two finger typing also.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    I replaced the launcher almost right away with LauncherPro, but since went with GoLauncherEX - damned widgets keep disappearing on reboot with any of them but at least I can tell what the icons are more quickly. The colors they used on the stock launcher and sorting was just confusing, can't figure who would actually like it that way.

    Mine keep disappearing as well. I try not to reboot my phone a lot. Sometimes they don't go away though but most of the time they do.

    I am having issues with the market. I moved the update to /system and now it keeps reverting to a 2.x.x version on reboot and then updating shortly after.

    Can someone post the original market under /system/apps?

    Question: I have downloaded Go SMS Pro. How can I stop the phone from showing me both the Go SMS and the regular Mercury Android SMS icons when I get a text? I have to read the Go SMS and then the regular SMS in order for the messages to fully clear out.

    EMAIL: Sporadic, anyone else?

    My Gmail is fine.

    My business email from (hostmonster.com) domains is strange. It can go days between showing me my mail. I finally had to use the secure server but unsecure ports and settings and it actually worked again. At times, it just won't grab my mail at all.

    Does anyone know if the android OS treats or looks different to the mail servers? Just seems strange it can work perfectly on desktop with same settings and struggle with the Phone (wifi or 3G)

    Can you disable or uninstall the stock app Traffic Manager? I notice its always at the top of the list when viewing real time CPU usage in Watchdog Lite. I can always check my data usage on cricket's website so not a big deal if I can get rid of it.
