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.

I have a Samsung Focus, and have had some of those same issues. I almost never have a problem with the built-in stuff like mail, but some 3rd party apps give me problems on live tile updates.

The weather app I use is supposed to have live tile support, and it sort of works, but then occasionally, I look and see that it's telling me what the weather was like two days ago, or at some arbitrary point in time in the recent past; it's kind of amusing. "Hey, it was cool and cloudy while I was asleep last night! Imagine that."

And occasionally, even on WiFi, it'll tell me that it's having trouble getting updates from Facebook, which I usually take to mean that maybe instead of looking at Facebook updates on my phone, I should go do something more useful than look at Facebook updates, anyway.

I haven't encountered long delays in connecting to WiFi after waking the phone up, though.
