+1. I tried OM2009t5 around July hoping for a minimal functioning phone
distro, and after facing some pretty severe issues (sound quality, not
able to pick up phone calls pretty regularly) I switched to SHR-U. Which
gave me what I wanted: fairly good sound quality, and most important, no
more frustration having to watch my phone ring and not being able to
pick it up. Oh, and a couple of nice apps out of the box, too.

OM2009 users: are you successfully using your Freerunners as phones
(also picking up calls)? Or just for non-phone purposes?

My 0,02€: There's SHR, which is pretty advanced, also in terms of plain
basic phone functionalityso. I don't see any reason for OM2009 to catch
up to where SHR already is.
