I have found that the new dialer app is buggy. doesn't always show who is calling/history, etc.
I reverted to old dialer:

i agree, the new dialer is just horrible. looks horrible and just feels broken, the usability of it is horrible and this "we only accept US numbers" thing is just ridiculous. it used to work and pull up where the area code originated at least. this "FU youre not american" attitude coming out of google is really, really beginning to piss me off

Google starts all the products as US only first. It's always been like that.

so?

i understand that different systems mean its sensible to start with one and go from there but there is no good reason to break things that worked. i mean who anywhere in google thought that slapping up the message "only works with US numbers" was in any possible way constructive or useful to anyone??????? if it doesnt work with the number then just have it do nothing for gods sake and just display the number.

Gosh, you're so angry about this. Why not email Google and ask them?

well yes i am annoyed. they went out of their way to break something. much like google wallet, where they actively work to not allow it to work outside the US.

its getting really tiresome

However, since the update it hasn't missed any. So for my case the notification LED functionality seems to have been improved. However, it has never blinked for my missed calls either before or after the update. I just assume it's not meant to though I'd like it to, given the option.

Ah. I've got mine set so that it will blink after a missed call, but not the VM in 4.4.2 via Light Flow.

I've got some time later tonight or tomorrow to play with it, may do a nandroid backup and flash it. Any problems with dropping the 4.4.3 full rom over top of a 4.4.2 install? I know google had a 74mb delta update, but I can't find that anywhere here so I'm using the next best option of the full rom...
