  1. Followed the software update prompt on my Atrix [v4.5.91] and while I like some of the new features, MANY of my contacts (important ones) are gone. So frustrating, these are my customers! Missing on Google too!

  2. Will it work if my atrix is not from AT&T? I ask this because I saw the file name containing ATT. Will it stop working? Hope you can answer me.

  3. Don’t Do it! My music is messed up, it won’t let you change your notifications so It keeps ringing everytime I get mail with no way to shut it off that I can see. Lots of problems and I’d like to shoot whoever designed this stupid upgrade.
