    Hey :)

    So in Settings > Display, gestures & buttons > G-Sensor calibration the app freezes or its just not showing any information?

    Have you tried a hard reset by holding down your power button till you get the 3 second countdown..?

    Or try installing AndroSensor (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fivasim.androsensor&hl=en) from the looks of it it shows you what sensors are working etc...

    Hope that helps

    Cheers

    It's a common issue, it's what my first one had to be replaced for. You can try what Jimbob has suggested, but I don't believe there's a software fix unfortunately, you'll probably have to send it back to HTC/your network.

    Thanks for the help I did a hard reset like Jimbob suggested and it seems to have fixed it atleast for the time being. Gonna keep an eye on it and then take it in for repair if it breaks again.
