    The SMS app LOVES to FC if you're holding the phone in landscape orientation. I can almost do it on demand. Hold the phone upright while opening up the app or a specific message.

    (Kind of read's like an Apple solution :()

    Have you tried one of the aftermarket SMS applications? Handcent or Chomp perhaps.

    trying chomp now. So far so good.

    Just sucks, the OEM SMS never FC till the updates.

    Yeah, I haven't read too much about that type of error persisting even after the factory data reset. Did it begin immediately after the update? Not to offend, but you're certain it was a hard reset and not a power cycle? I just don't know what type of background you have, and just wondered. :(

    No worries, I did the ota to 2.1 then did a hard reset (wiped out all my app's..etc) then shortly after that when I text it FC once in while, well once a day I should say.

    Well that sounds like you took all the recommended steps. Unfortunate you still get the FC. There is a method to turn off the native SMS notifications I believe, if you're getting duplicated notifications now that you're using Chomp. Give Handcent a shot too if you have time, it seems to be the more popular of the two.

    thanks, I found that turn off setting on the native SMS.
    I like chomp beter because of the widget, I don't like just an icon for SMS

    I've received exactly two text messages since the OTA and both of them ended in a force close. I have no idea how I was holding the darn thing.
