It will bring up the phone number of the person to text, but in the email application, rather than the text message application.

Before Update:
Web Browser- www.hp.com not working:
When going to http://www.hp.com with MOL1 on the Q— go to IE on Q & enter hp.com, after the page loads it will either take you to home screen or the start menu

Web site can be accessed successfully in MOL2.

This list is from this rockin’ walkthru. I just did the update and found it to be completely painless.

1.  Downloaded the update from Motorola.

2.  Backed up my pictures; I ActiveSync Exchange so contacts, email, calendar, and tasks were safe.

3.  Performed final Sync.

4.  Performed a master reset.

5.  Executed the installer (see the walk-thru for detailed steps).

6.  Performed a master reset.

7.  Synced and restored pictures.

8.  Adjusted settings to pre-update state, and enjoyed the latest update.
