Just did a manual update to Froyo ( Android 2.2 FRF83), so far so good. Couple of things I had issues with;

1. Text message tone got reset to something random
2. Phone ring tone also got set to something random
3. Use 2G netwroks only got ticked - so no 3G for a few hours until I discovered that.

Haven't played with all the new stuff yet, but so far it's definitely faster.

I am on Froyo FRF50 and have the FRF83 update but have held off updating since I was wondering if I would get an OTA update. I will wait a few more days before pulling the trigger. The main issue I is fixed with FEF83 is the wifi - for some reason I get quite slow downloads off my Linksys G router in the browser and I have no idea why. It was better on Eclair.

I gave up waiting for the OTA updates for anything. Undecided

Funnily enough when I went from 2.0 to 2.1 the OTA update arrived the next day.

Re the wifi, I am noticing considerably better connections to the home wifi over 2.1, the phone now switches easily between 3g and my home and work wifi AP's. 

I'm also liking the "grouping" in the call register, although it does seem a tad random at the moment, with not all calls to and from the same number being grouped.

I'm wondering if someone could help me, or at least point me in the right direction.

Work has given me a Google Nexus One (provided by Vodafone) to play with, everything is going pretty well and I'm getting my head most things. The phone is running Froyo 2.2 FRF91

One problem that I'm having is getting Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync working. I'm adding a new account, entering all the correct information, as I've done with Nokia devices and WM6 devices. We're running Windows Server 2003 with Exchange Server 2007. I get the following error:

Setup could not finish:
This server requires security features your phone does not support.
Edit details

I've selected "Use secure connection (SSL)" and have selected "Accept all SSL certificates", which is required by our webmail server.

I think the problem lies in the fact that our certificate is a self signed certificate with no trail of trust to any Google approved CA authority. I've tried getting the network admin to email me *.pem and *.der certificates and install them onto the phone (but I'm not sure if I did that right either).

The following thread has other people with the same problem.

I don't want to have to install any third party apps on the phone, as they cost money. Freitasm listed a couple of apps here:

Is anyone able to suggest anything that we could try, or tell me if I'm doing something wrong.
