It's actually 4.2.1, but who's counting? :p
There is a bug or I'm just a complete idiot.

This morning on the train going to work, I was surfing via Safari and I'd get a pop-up saying 'invalid login' on mobilepoint wi-fi hotspots. Well, too the best of my limited knowledge, I have not ever entered credentials for that service to access their Wi-Fi hotspots.

I checked my list of known networks plus the setting for 'ask to join networks' (it's off) and this pop-up comes up quite often. It is very annoying!!! Just as bad as the 'Cellular Network Lost' --- I really don't need to see that message and click dismiss every freaking 2 minutes while the train is moving from station to station. :X

Other than that - seems to be ok.

My keyboard still freezes when switching languages. I use the English, Japanese (x2) and Emoji displays. It's at the worst when using SMS. A reboot will speed things up for awhile, but then it goes back to the sluggish key entry soon after.
