    Hey all,

    here's my problem, i'd love any input you might have.

    Downloaded the "Coin Toss" widget from HTC, along with the "Dice Toss". Dice Toss worked fine, but the Coin Toss downloaded, and at the same time i got a txt message, and now the Coin Toss is stuck in the "Installing" phase.

    P.O.I.

    -other widgets are regular and say "installed" next to them, whereas coin toss is still "installing", but with no visible progress bar towards the top
    -entering the download screen itself for the app has the "cancel download" button grayed out.

    any suggestions?

    i spoke too soon, didn't work. ah well, thanks for the suggestion though. i'm sure i can move on with my life, not having a smart phone make a 50/50 choice for me.

    Did you recently get the 2.1 OTA? If so, have you performed a factory reset? It seems to help with many of the bugs people are experiencing.

    Yeah, I got the OTA a week ago or so. Haven't done a factory reset yet as I'm not sure what I'd need for all the contact / app backups

    As long as your contacts are "Google" contacts, they will sync up when you are setting up your phone (gmail account). Here are two threads that are worth taking a look at.

    If so try to kill it
