    For some reason whenever I turn my phone off and back on, 2 of my apps basically uninstall themselves. The icon is still there, but the widget doesnt load and the app FC's.

    The apps are AccuWeather and ExtDateWidget. I have to reinstall them everytime. And it only happens with them, but not any other apps, even if they are installed after those 2...

    Any ideas?

    Make sure these two apps aren't installed (or moved) to your SD card. Install to internal memory and they should run fine.

    Ahh, they are indeed installed on my SD. Why would that affect it?

    Simple explanation? Widgets don't run well from SD. Not sure why, but they just don't.

    When your Ally boots up, it can take several moments before the SD card is initialized. These two apps are attempting to load from the SD before that process can finish. I'm sure that someone clever could write a script to delay calling the app(s) before the SD is ready to be mounted by the system.:)
