    How, do tell... I would like to revert back also. I think most of all I hate the big blue area at the top and the big date headings it inserts.

    It's so loud! Also the artwork of the left side menu...not sure what was the thought process here and what type of crowd this change is targeting but I prefer a much cleaner spartan design.

    For those still getting phone calls in the HUB, which phone app are you using?

    I'm using TruePhone and don't see any of my calls in the updated HUB.
    Getting phone calls and SMS in Hub, using default VZW phone and default VZW Messages+ SMS app.

    That's the secret, with the default phone app I do see call in the HUB. My problem with the default phone app is the picture of everyone in the favorites list, I don't need to see their picture. I went there to call them and I consider that a waste of screen real estate...

    ps.. And it adds the frequent called to the list that seems to adjust itself, I have people I call frequently and I need their names at my finger tip and not moving around with numbers I've called for whatever reason. These things should be adjustable.

    But you can fit more names on the screen without the finger targets, hence a waste of screen-estate... We should have the option of turning those off but someone at Google must think they're such a good idea that everyone wants them???

    However, I have found I can leave the native phone app as default so the calls appear in the HUB and still make outbound calls with truephone. And to be honest, there's no noticable difference in the way the phone works that I can see???

    Mine also, when I open a message from hub it opens in messaging app... can someone look at this please?
    I have the same issue on my K2. I use Yaata but I switched to Android Messenger for a few days to test, same issue. The issue is "fixed" per conversation once somebody texts me, then their feed in the hub links me directly to the conversation. Rebooting the phone resets this and then all conversations in the hub take me to the app rather than the conversation. Also, the issue happens again if someone is in a group chat. If they text the group chat, then tapping the individual conversation will once again revert to taking me to the app. Until they text me directly again, at which point tapping the individual conversation in the HUB takes me directly to the conversation again. Absolutely infuriating, this is the kind of screwed up unusable nonsense that I always associated with "all the other phones", leading me to keep buying BlackBerrys exclusively.

    Combine this with the other problem mentioned in this thread, conversations are sorted by last received message for SMS in the HUB, except every other form of messaging is sorted by last correspondence in the HUB, and SMS is sorted by last correspondence in Yaata, leading to the above intermittent behavior requiring me to fish through two differently-ordered lists of conversations but only an unpredictable number of times when I open conversations. All caused by a software update which my phone fails to undo, six months after purchasing a phone, in the middle of the day. The kind of fundamental usability breakage I never expected to be forced onto my BlackBerry of all things.

    If your phone was delivered with the "new" hub, it may be hopeless... if not, then...

    First... backup notes, uninstall ("disable" to have phone restore original) hub, hub services, notes, calendar, tasks one by one... Original will install itself each time... go to Google play and uncheck automatic updates for each of those apps... all will work again (Conite says may not be forever).

    You will see to re-install your email accounts in Hub and it will get everything back... automatically imports contacts and calendar from Google, other users might need to import that...

    one additional thought... playstore will likely want to update to the new hub & hub+services crippled ...you MUST shut off updates in playstore for hub+, hub+services, tasks, calendar, notes, contacts so you can still get text messages and phone calls in the hub...

    So Google figured out how to make BB no different from any other phone, the advantage to having a BB was that everything was in a single place (hub). Without that, we have just another android phone.

    Thanks for the article but it doesn't say how to change the permissions. Is there a step by step on exactly which permissions need changing?

    My daughter and Robin Zander’s daughter go to high school together. Couple of weeks ago, my daughter sees “Mr Zander” in school parking lot walking to a performance that his daughter is part of. My daughter has met him a few times without really knowing full significance. I had explained before this last encounter and she walked up babbling about the Dream Police inside her head... he found it funny and she explained that I’m a fan... she’s arranging a future meeting
