    When you upgraded, did you perform a factory reset?

    No I didn't, if I do it will I lose my apps?

    Yes bit your phone will work fine. I had the same problem, factory reset , reload apps, no problem.:)

    Yeah, it's recommended you perform a factory reset after upgrading so you eliminate all traces of the previous firmware. Otherwise it might conflict. You lose all your apps but it'll make your phone performance better.

    I just upgraded to 2.3 and now I can't turn off sms messages from appearing in my notification bar. I had the same issue with Froyo but was able to turn it off in the settings. I try to turn it off in settings now, and the option doesn't "grey out" like it did with Froyo. I've tried "GoSMS" and "Handcent" but they don't help either. I still need to disable notifications on the stock app first.
    I did a factory reset before and after the upgrade to 2.3 and everything else is working flawlessly (so far).
    My phone is a non-rooted SGS Vibrant on Bell Mobility, running 2.3.3 UGKG3.
    Please help!
