Do research before updating your android and sense to 2.3.5 and 3.0!General

    I live in Norway and updated my android system to 2.3.5 and sense to 3.0 about a week ago. Everything looks better but I can't receive phone calls when the screen is not on. When I answer I get an error box which I have to close before having tounlock the sim card again. When I hang up instead of answering the phone it just keeps on ringing for several minutes and you can't do anything while this is going on, not even turn of the phone or restart it. After googling a bit it seems like this problem is somehow connected to the callers facebook accounts. There are a lot of people having the exactly same problem as me and it is unbelievable that the update was releasesd with such a huge error. I also lost the application for the gps navigation system (bilpanel/carpanel?) which I had payed for. This is an app that was on the phone when I bought it a year ago. I can't find the app on android market. I hope for a new update fix quickly. Does anybody here know anything more about this?

    Hi Petur,

    I've had Sense 3.0 on my DHD since December 8th and I'm yet to experience any of the issues you are having.

    When you updated, was it an official update or is your phone rooted and you used a custom rom? I don't really know what to suggest otherwise.

    Maybe I've just been incredibly lucky.

    Give it a few more days.. the update is currently rolling out across Western Europe so a lot of the Mods will be having a play and I'm sure, as with Gingerbread, threads will start appearing about "fixes" for any issues found.

    Yesterday I upgraded my DHD (unbranded but on Orange) without problems as such, but the 'Car Panel' is gone. Looks like it's no longer with us, it's not in the market either.

    I updated mine late on Monday night and it caused nothing but problems.

    I let it go about its business alone, but once the update had been applied the phone kept restarting every few minutes. Just as it had finished starting up and was about to become useable it would switch off and make the HTC start up jingle sound.

    When you are trying to sleep at 2am and have to get up at 6am this is a very annoying sound!! Eventually had to take the battery out which menat I was late to work as I had no alarm clock!

    Anyway, it continued to do this even after taking the battery out for the remainder of the night so when I got to work the only option left was a factory reset.

    This has fixed the problem, but the problem shouldn't have been there in the first place, and I shouldn't have had to spend almost a day resetting up my phone with downloading apps and logging into apps I had long forgotten the passwords for.

    Also, the "Make more space" option in the Storage menu of the settings menu doesn't work. When I try to transfers apps to the SD card it tells me there is not enough space available, but I have 2.45GB free on a 16GB card. I've had to download an A2SD app from the market which makes the process slower as you have to move each app individually.

    Phone is running a little slower now I've finally almost got it where I want it, but I've got a few apps that just won't work at all:

    I use an alarm clock called Early Bird Alarm as its the only one I can find which will allow you to swtich it off by scanning a QR code (this basically means I am forced to get out of bed to go to another room in the house to take a photo of a QR I've got blu-tacked to the wall). Keeps force closing.

    Facebook has had some FC issues, but that could just be because the offical FB app is shite.

    Updated over my mobile data connection (planned to wait till I got home for wifi but got bored at work :D)

    Had no issues at all, phone runs a lot faster/smoother than it did, I'm happy.

    Does anyone know when this is planned to come to TELUS in Canada? And if there's any info about battery life or performance, I'd love to hear it.

    I have the same problem as the OP, I am on T-Mobile.. I updated on the 21st, and since then I can't receive my calls when in standby keeps force closing and telling me to send an error report. It also rings silent too, so I have been missing calls. Annoying!

    Updated and got repeated reboots every 5 mins. Had to do a factory reset and took the last 2 days to get back everything in working order.
    Q: can't seem to sync all my contacts and reconcile with their names. Any ideas?

    Removing your facebook account, then re adding apparently sorts this.

    Sync them with the gmail account or facebook?

    Reboot problems seems to be coming from the /.android_secure folder on the sdcard. remove it and the reboots hopefully should disappear. All apps installed ont he SD card will need to be reinstalled again plus the data will disappear... sorry about that.

    I'd love an answer to this as well. I've checked the TELUS website and the only "upgrade" they have is the upgrade to Gingerbread from several months ago.

    UK sim free updated a week ago. No problems what so ever, phone is even better I shall be in no rush to change it. I am well pleased with HTC Watch, its great for long journeys and the rent a film for 49p special offer is very welcome.

    Guys just a quick idea, ensure your contacts are backed up in the cloud somewhere with Google as an example. Backup your SMS, and your apps should be stored on the market for quick download, if you have a lot of free apps make a list and use the market browser to find and download them quicker then do a factory reset. Also backup all your SD card data to the PC and format the card to FAT32 on your PC then restore all the folders apart from those beginning with a period (.) lol

    We custom ROM users tend to do full wipes between changes of ROM or even updates to ensure we get the cleanest install possible to ensure minor issues don't crop up relating to data being left behind that could interfere with its operation.

    Probably a good idea to allow the OTA update to hit the ground running so to speak.

    Also allows you to see if any particular apps cause issues due to compatibility with the update as you putting them back one by one. If the only updating you do is when there is an OTA update it might seem a big deal but for peace of mind and smoother operation its worth it every once in a while.

    Kinda tired so hope that made sense.

    I guess as I have a Desire HD from Orange I won't be getting these updates anytime soon? I can't seem to find any info anywhere regarding when it will be rolled out, typical stupid Orange!!

    The update bricked my phone and I had to return it to HTC to be fixed. Very quick return despite bank holiday new years weekend. Not sure if there's anything I could have done to avoid it.

    Sorry about that. The unfortunate thing with rollouts of this size is that there will always be some cases of things failing miserably.

    At least they got your phone back to you promptly (turnaround was over 6 weeks at one point) and hopefully you've not lost too much data.

    Yeah - turnaround, inspite of the holiday period, sounds to have been really good for you... at least you're all back to how it should be!!

    I'm having the same problem as peturj.

    Whenever I answer a call of a number that is associated to a facebook account the phone application stops working and I have to force close it but I can still answer numbers that are not associated to a facebook account.

    Has there been a fix for this yet?
