Well I guess people can relax a bit now... Was a non issue for me, but could definitely see how it would bother other.

this also means that they simply made a mistake in WP 7.

This is just ridiculous not to have this feature come on just another reason why I don't consider a WP8 device

This is one of the annoying features of WP7. I own a Samsung Focus and this has made my life horrible since the day I got it. Take a hint Microsoft, just fancy live tiles don't make a good OS. Glad to see this being changed, it would be even great if Microsoft bundled this with the WP7.8 update for legacy smartphone owners.
