Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

Four seconds isn't a problem? I'd be upset with a two second delay. My Macbook has close to a four second delay, and it drives me nuts. Wake the heck up already and give me my content!

Now, with a 3g signal also available, does it instantaneously connect to that? Or is it never shut down? If it would just use the 3g until the wifi was ready and seamlessly switch over, that would be less of an issue.

well, It starts when I swipe up to unlock, so while I'm putting in my unlock code it's trying to connect. It's connected before I get a chance to even pick the app I wanted to use.

It may actually take less time before it's operational, but it's 3.8 seconds from the initial connect and DHCP request (which happen immediately when I swipe to unlock), and when it stops sending ARP messages.
