    Sense UI keeps crashing on me! It used to happen maybe once every couple weeks but now I get it 2-3 times a day. I just got Pandahome last night and when I switch from Panda to Sense it restarts sense maybe 1 out of 10 times but the crashing problem began before then so I don't know what's causing it. I'd try a hard reset but last time I did that my phone wouldn't activate and it took Verizon 3 hours to fix.

    Anyone else have this issue or any suggestions?? Thanks

    Can you list the other apps you have installed?

    Perhaps whatever alternative Home programs you have don't get along with sense?

    Perhaps too many programs installed?

    I just uninstall a bunch of apps first, before trying a Hard Reset. You're going to have to reinstall them anyway!

    Are you using automatic task killer?

    Wow, some quick replies. Ok so I don't have any other Home programs besides the factory Home, Sense UI, and now Panda. But as I said, the crashing began before Panda.

    As for general apps, here is what I've installed lately, Might've been before or after the first crash but I can't recall.
    Apartments, Bluetooth File Transfer, Mole Miner, Screen Crack, Live Scores, Bebbled, PDANet.

    Absolutely none of that stuff has been running when these crashes occured the last few times. And yes I do use advanced task manager to end stuff pretty frequently (but no, not at the time the crashes occured).

    Does ATM have any type of auto kill features? Not really familiar with it, sorry. If it does that could be messing with Sense. Do you remember what you installed just prior to this starting or has it been happening since day one?

    I read your entire post and then when I went to reply it had been changed. You know what I was going to give you crap for, dont you?. OP, sorry, I cant think of anything else it could be.

    Task Manager doesn't have any autokill feature that I'm aware of. I just uninstalled all those programs I listed before so we'll see what happens. Sure hope it's not the bluetooth file transfer because that thing is pretty useful.

    After a restart I would give it a bit of time and see how it goes. My girlfriend was having trouble with her phone, lack of response and freezing up. We started uninstalling stuff and it turned out to be a calorie counting app that she had of all things. With that gone, her phone works great again.


    Yeah, I completely misread his post. Figured I would wipe everything before I started retyping so I didn't mess anyone up.

    I am having the same issue and it's becoming more frequent. --ATM does have auto kill. I'll try turning it off and seeing if that helps.

    I am using Task Manager and set the auto-kill feature to NEVER kill processes or apps and I haven't had a Sense UI crash since. Thanks for the good advice. I was also having the dreaded android.process.acore force close happening a couple times a day but found out on another thread that the Any Cut app was the culprit.

    My mistake. I had no idea there was an auto-kill option. However, I just went into the settings to find it and it's there but it's grayed out along with the whole auto-end section of the preferences. I can't figure out how to change them but I can see that the auto-end frequency is set to Never already.

    But aside from that, I uninstalled all those apps I listed earlier (and Panda) and I haven't had a Crash since. Still not sure which one caused the problem.

    If there is a paid and free version of the app that may be why the auto kill isn't showing for you.

    The crashing may have been because ofmore than one app. It might have been 2 different apps fighting over a resource. I would run the phone for a but longer and then slowly start downloading apps. One a day would be best. Test it and see how it goes.
