    Last night I decided to flash ZEN cause my Fresh ROM was going ballistic on me. I like how smooth sense is on it and some of the features, but there are a couple things that are bothering me which are causing me to decide whether or not to try out Darch.
    First of all, and most importantly, the reception I've had has been horrible, to say the least. Normally I would be getting 3 bars of 3g in my house, whereas with Zen I am getting 1 bar, and sometimes going into 1x mode. I have also noticed a 4 and a half ring delay when I called my cell from my phone (that leaves about 3 rings left-- not good). Secondly, VVM is not working, in fact, it doesn't even show up. I have to deal with the annoying SMS's that I get sent in order to listen to my voicemail. Another problem I've had has been with MMS. While I can log onto my GMAIL account fine (I only use it for Android), I cannot log into any other E-Mail account. It always gives me a message like "Cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding". Lastly, I cannot figure out how to change my SMS notification sound. It is not linked to the notification sound in settings, and I cannot find out a setting where I can change this sound. If this is the only problem I had, I could live with it, but the ring tone is just annoying me like crazy lol.

    I know some of you may think this is a flame (?), but it is not meant to be. I really want Zen to work, because from what I have seen that DOES work, it works well, and I like that aspect of it. I am wondering if anyone has some troubleshooting ideas that I can follow in order to make Zen more usable? TIA

    See above in bold.... I also put your issues into a list as it was easier to respond to :)

    Try some of the above and see if that helps. The best ROM for you is the one that you like and works the best on your phone!

    You remind me of my English Comp 2 teacher lol.
    Anyways, 4 and 5 are supposed to be linked together. And it is through the stock app, not over the internet.

    1) I shouldn't have compared bars, cause I also realized this too. What I did notice with Zen was constant 0-1 bar 3g/1x reception. I never got 1x reception with any other rom in my house so I know there is something up with it.
    2) I don't know what a slot index is so no. Lol
    3) Thanks, I'll give that a shot
    4) and 5) See above
    6) Changing the notification sound doesn't affect the SMS received sound like it normally does.

    Thanks for the input. After I had a call dropped to a potential buyer of my car (D:), I flashed fresh 2.3.3. again and it has been running ok. If these problems are all solvable like they seem, I think Ill re-flash Zen and see if it works to my likings. I just need to sell my car cause I always worry that right when I wipe and flash a new ROM, someone is going to text me about it.

    4 &5) I guess I got MMS and mail confused for the same thing. I am not having any MMS problems, just mail problems.

    6) What is weird is that every notification sound except SMS played the sound set in the settings for "notification sound". It did it all the time, not just when I was hooked up to the computer.

    5) Try triple checking all the ports and what not. I only use gmail and my work email and both work fine with Zen so not sure what to tell you there.

    6) Are you using the stock messaging app or handcent/chomp?

    Did you change the notification tone from Chomp's settings?
