That's my experience. After more than enough frustration with basic 
stuff in 2008.x and FSO, I tried SHR (image 08.12.16) and I'm quite 
happy with it. Mind you, I'm not an intensive neither extensive phone 
user but I can easily pin the GSM code, call and add contacts. I love 
the screen keyboard although I could not find it by myself initially. 
I'm now playing with GPS, and it works but I'm getting long fix times 
(tried only a night in a single place). Plenty of apps to try out yet.
