- SMS: When viewing a message, one doesn't see the name of the sender
but the phone number (also when the number is saved in the phone
- MISC: when not in fullscreen mode (=illume enabled), one can't see
the used profile in the home view

¤ SIM: An option to save messages/numbers to SIM would be awesome when
testing stuff.. I keep losing SMS:s I've received. But it's the life
of a beta tester, I guess :)
¤ SMS: Writing an SMS that's longer than one line makes the first line
disappear from the screen when one writes the second line. Unnecessary
and annoying.
¤ SMS: When viewing a message, one can click on the sender number and
type a new number. Is this to forward the message? I take it's not
possible yet to edit a received message before forwarding?
¤ SMS: There's no character count in SMS view

¤ PROFILES: having the 'silent' profile on I received a SMS and got
audible alert. Shouldn't happen, I guess. When I have 'silent' profile
selected, going to settings -> phone shows me 'default' profile
selected. see http://scap.linuxtogo.org/files/0089ddba2f209e1bf6b8bc0f3c2279f2.png

After the screenshot I changed the profile from the setting menu
(default -> silent) and this is the log for that:

ie. the profile item doesn't seem to follow the AUX changer but it
works the vice versa.

Some more comments inline below:

No, I don't think it does. I now disabled PIN and restarted and I get
no PIN question.. (or did I.. I don't think I did..). So now the menu
says 'PIN on' but it doesn't ask for the PIN when starting.

On a start or two later it asks for the pin. I presses 'Enter' and got
the message 'can't init service GSM:
org.freesmartphone.GSM.Network.Unauthoriz(and then it run out of the
screen..) and OK button.After this I also got the messages from GPRS
and TopBar, Audio, SIM & SMS failing (because GPRS & GSM are down)

logs here: http://pastebin.com/m37d37110

but anyway, it didn't ask again for the PIN after pressing 'enter'.
So I'd suggest checking for empty PIN when pressing Enter and if
that's the case, just ask it again (or at least suppress the ~7 error

Hmm.. Maybe a text 'scanning' until connman sends the 'completed' -signal?

Something is needed. I'm not an GUI expert.. Could your UI designed
had a look at this?

Right, it's cool if all visible networks are handled correctly.
Support for hidden is extra but not the first priority..

I'm working on a script (Kustomizer for OM2009) to be able to set up
FR as a complete package, not only simple Paroli-phone. See

A button with text 'search' that would launch the keyboard and typing
would straight jump to name in the list that has matching first X
letters or so..

Right, seems to be working now after reflashing. No messages this time :)

No, logs not available, I'll see if I can get some if this happens later again..
