Any thoughts?
Welcome av!

You probably had an abundance of messages in the old application?
Adar and Xanok have found that if you let the Messages Application sit on this loading screen for an extended period of time eventually all your messages will reload to the new system. You will have to have some time available to wait and be patient.

There is plenty of good ICS roms out there already (for awhile now) for the EVO3D

I thought that may be the problem/solution but I got too impatient to wait and decided to post here on the forums. I followed your instructions and they all loaded up. I deleted a lot of the new message and it is still running a little slow which makes me think it would be best if I just deleted all the old messages and started anew.

I appreciate the help. I'll let you know if anything else changes.

Hey everyone,

I recently did the update, and I'm having an issue with the stock camera. It worked fine for a while, but now it won't. When I try to open it, the screen goes black, the white camera icon pops up for a seconds, then it goes back to black for 15 seconds before closing. I've already restarted, removed the battery and restart, and I tried installing FX camera, which opened (and stayed open), but there was no picture- it was a black screen underneath the FX camera interface.

Sounds like a software issue with the camera...make sure you have all your important stuff (thats not on your sd card, and contacts backed up) and do a factory reset, so that all the in phone programs get a fresh install. When you do the reset tho, DO NOT reformat or erase your SD card...

I am having the worst phone day ever. First, I dropped my phone so now my capacitive buttons don't work. I then install ICS and nothing works. I swear my phone has rebooted 15 times already within the past hour.

I try to load text messages - reboots
I try to update apps - reboots
I try to change settings - reboots

I need to go home and back up my stuff and just do a factory reset. This is so ridiculous.

correct. everytime i try flashing a new rom, it gives me an error. you're supposed to flash a new rom in recovery mode from the bootloader area, right?

Default Press+hold home button brings up Recent Apps list (new to ICS)

I don't know what button or combination of buttons I accidentally pushed, but I got this screen on my 3VO today. Has anybody seen this screen?

EDIT.
Never mind. It is a new task manager. You press and hold Home button.

That the new recent apps shortcut that comes with ICS. You hold down the home but and it shows the most recent apps that you used. It shows a preview screenshot of each app.

Well it has been over 2 hours and my text message screen still says "Please Wait". I know I have a lot of text messages, but wow this is a really long time. How long did this take for you guys, or anyone else that had this problem? Also, is this just a one time thing or should I delete a ton of my messages once my messages finally load? Thanks.

Couple of questions:

1) How do you adjust font size

2) Is there a way to adjust for when the screen dims before auto turning off? I'm not talking about the timer for when the phone goes to sleep, but like a few seconds before it goes to sleep, it dims...is there a way to turn that off? I still want my phone to sleep, just don't want it to dim before sleeping.

Yeah, its an outrageous one time thing.

I can't delete a thread either because the Please Wait message appears as soon as I load the app.

EDIT- 3 hours later, it's finally done. Seems to be working now. Thanks

Can anyone that took the update check the Messages application for me? In Sense 4 under the menu in the messages application there is a new feature to backup and restore messages. Did they add this to 3.6 as well?

how can I change the stupid lock screen shortcuts? They switched the camera and messaging one and now I keep launching the camera while trying to check texts. It's driving me absolutely insane and I can't figure out how to change them.

Exclamation Camera Stopped working after ICS Update

My camera stopped working after updating to ICS, anyone know how to solve this problem?

Edit, never mind I got the camera to work again by deleting the DCIM folders and any other camera picture related folder on the SD card, I also had to restart the device to fix it.

Anybody figure out how to get the Facebook pictures back into Handcent. They show up fine in my contacts and Handcent uses the pictures I've added manually to my contacts. Can't figure out why the pic's in my contacts that come from Facebook won't show up.

Default HTC EVO 3d phone Reboots and reboots...

Hello Everyone,

I just updated my HTC EVO 3d to the new ICS and everything seemed to be fine until my phone started to reboot constantly after the update. My phone has rebooted more than 100 times and I've rebooted and restarted my phone more than 3 times and it still continues to reboot! Any ideas how to correct this issue? Please someone help me this is very frustrating... Thank you all in advance for all your help and support!!

My WIFI has sucked since the updated, not connecting to my home router, forcing me to reset the router. Is this a known ICS issue, or is this a bug?

Default Installed updates & now I can't log onto my work's network

I installed the most recent updates to the OS and now I'm getting "a secure connection couldn't be established" every time I try to log onto my work's wifi. This didn't happen before and now it's draining my battery quick using 3G. What can I do to fix this? I already took it off wi-fi and restarted my phone but i'm getting the same emssage every time now.

Default Can't find bluetooth settings after ICS update.

I'm feeling a bit stupid here..... But where are the bluetooth settings after the update?

I see where to turn it off and on, but where are the other settings as before the update?

I'm having issues connecting different devices through bluetooth I didn't have before, such as my Jawbone speaker.

Try deleting the device, and then repair it again. I have no issues with BT and ICS, and my buddy has the same phone and the Jawbone and connects with no issues.

I'm having issues on my home WiFi also, I have to reset my router frequently for my phone to connect. They need to fix this, because its really annoying. It worked fine before the ICS update.

The problem is, if it is an issue you need to report it to Sprint, and also call HTC tech support

Phone not receiving calls or texts while connected to the web browser on 3G after the update. I have no WiFi or 4G acsess so this is a big problem for me. I have to kill the internet in task killer in order to clear the line. This never happened before ICS. Any solutions please?

Default Battery Life

I am not sure what has changed, but my battery life has been absolutely horrendous since the new ICS update. Anyone else notice this? Is there something running that didnt run before the update in the background? I am getting about 2 hours of heavy use (youtube,games,fb, texting) before it dies. I really dislike this new update

Greetings - Two quick questions (one I have queuried previously but no one replied) First off - since the update my voicemail play back is so soft I have to be somewhere absolutely quiet to hear it. Driving me nuts - any else have this and is there a way to turn up the volume? In Settings/Sound/Volumes I have all three all the way up and it makes no difference. Thoughts?

Number two - prior to ICS I had three different icons for each of my email accounts. Used to be you could set one up via shortcuts, now no option for email is offered. Anybody figured out how that is done now?

Cry Unavoidable integration of Facebook and Google contacts

Prior to ICS, you had the option to disallow Sense/HTC to mingle your Facebook friends with your Google contacts. This new update had no way to circumvent this on the front end. I'm hoping there's a way to reverse this? I don't like Facebook tangling with anything else, but I like having the app on the device. Is there anyway around this?

Meanwhile, I keep denying the ask to merge contacts everytime it comes up. Facebook has gotten far too far-reaching...

Also...I want my Android smileys back!!!!

Default Same old lockscreen?

Is there a reason behind why we didn't receive an updated lockscreen with ICS? Or am I just missing something?

No matter what htc device nor firmware your on it will always be the same lock screen since it's sense and not aosp like gnex. If it irks you grab a 3rd party lock screen replacement like go locker or widget lock screen. Or if your a root user flash an aosp ROM.

Oh I figured with a Sense update they could have redone it! I was just curious, thanks for the recommendations I'll check those out.

I haven't rooted this phone, haven't really had the need.

Thanks!

Question Notification Sound

Before the update I use to be able to set my notification sound for my text messages to silent. This allowed me to use Ring Pro and set different sounds for different contacts. The silent option under notifications doesn't seem to be available anymore... any suggestions???

I was told by the girl at the Sprint store you cant silence the ringer and notifications separately with ics. I don't like that. I also don't like not being able to remove the music icon while in dock mode.

Do we have any official word that Sprint is going to fix these bugs/issues with the ICS update?

My poor phone is useless since this upgrade. Nothing works. And I have been on the phone with HTC and Sprint constantly since an hour after accepting this ICS garbage.

Neither Sprint, nor HTC has had a single helpful suggestion... Anything they have suggested to fix anything has not only not helped, but in several cases, made things worse.

Worse still, the customer service reps, especially at HTC yell at me because their companies so called upgrade is not the more functional product they keep telling me it should be.

I miss my phone. It was so perfect before and now it's junk.
