    I still haven't gotten any of the HTCSense.com features to work for me, its like both are completely unconnected, even though I've tried everything short of deleting accounts to get it working..

    HTC Sense.com did more working for me as I wanted!

    In Sense.com setup I wrote my landline phone number (silly of me) and ... voila ... HTC Sense.com discovered my DHD in Nigeria :)
    I changed in Sense.com setup to my mobile number and then my DHD was found at the right location.

    So I wonder if everybody who knows my mobile number could find the location of my phone in HTC Sense.com, too ?

    Based in UK and when I had the HTCSense activated it only worked after I changed the international dialling code in the web page to read normal (??)
    Like it originally shows the number as (+44)785xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Changed it to 0785xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    and it worked fine then.

    Just go to "Settings->Accounts and Sync" and turn on "HTC Sense".
    That did the trick for me. My phone rings now from HTC Sense website but it locates it in Africa whereas I live in Greece!!
    LOL!

    Nice to quote myself :D

    To my post: In meantime I have heard HTC places all phones with wrong numbers to this place in Nigeria.

    To horrify sloppy users like me with "Nigeria Connection"? :D
