On my experience, it has nothing (or nearly nothing) to do with kernel, but to 
#1024 (bouncing calypso). I'm suffering from this bug since I bought my FR on 
September. I also had a lot of suspend/resume problems, with every distro I 
tried (and I tried nearly all).

At first I though that they were different problems. #1024 made that I lose 
some calls, and on the other hand sometimes I couldn't resume from sleep. 

But since I'm using SHR, with recommended 2.6.24 kernel and "never deep sleep" 
activated, I had not ONE SINGLE problem with suspend/resume nor with lost 
calls. It simply suspends and resumes every time I try it, and I receive all 

I'm not saying there were not other problems with kernel and suspend, but with 
a recent 2.6.24 kernel and "never_deep_sleep", it works like a charm for me. 
If I don't activate "never_deep_sleep", It behaves as any other distro I 
tried. It sometimes don't resume, and I lose some calls.

I hope #1024 is resolved ASAP. I think this will solve nearly all problems 
people has trying to use FR as daily phone.
