    lol i know i was in a IT meeting and got bored so looked for more widgets and found this. I hated always going to the Settings to go from sound to vib and back. I tried 3rd party apps in the market but never worked as solid as going through this widget. =)

    Click the + button next to "Phone"
    Click Widget
    Click "get more HTC widgets" at the top and you will see PROFILE widget.

    :D

    I could be misunderstanding you, but you need to find an open place on one of the homescreens to pu that widget. They do not "open" like a typical app.

    Once you download it you have to go back to widgets and then it will be on the full list. Don't go back to More HTC Widgets.

    I dont think there is a apk unless someone can extract it? So when you click on the + then "power control" it doesnt try to place it on a open screen?

    power control works, but the widget that i'm talking about is the profile widget that you can download from "get more htc widgets". after it downloads, nothing happens and the profile widget is nowhere to be found, either in the list, or on the home screen.

    lol sorry i meant "profile" widget. So if you go back into the "get more HTC widgets do you see the "profile" widget and next to it says "installed" ?

    NOw go to "add widget" look under the "Settings" I bet its in there! ;)

    Unfortunately no. after I press download, it says downloading and then installing flashes for a second but disappears afterwards. When I go back onto widgets, profile cannot be found under settings, or anywhere else for that matter

    it's not a market app right? allow non market apps. that may be the problem.

    I know exactly what you are saying Kino. I am having the same problem. I downloaded the widget and it shows "installed" under the "get more HTC widgets" sub menu. However, the main list of widgets does not show it. I had previously downloaded the "notes" widget from the same list and it works fine, so I know what to expect. This, isn't working the same way, which includes trying rebooting after downloading/installing.

    after you download and install the widget go back to the widgets page and go under settings it will be there listed as "profile". You can then place it where you want.

    Look in the main widget list for settings. Click on settings, It will be listed there.

    Kino, I want to clarify, when you go back to the download more widgets does it say installed? or no?

    If not try this:
    From the main screen click Menu/settings/applications/manage applications
    Wait for the apps to load (This can take up to a min or more)
    Once loaded look for HTC Widget Download manager and click on it.
    Clear data, and cache if available.

    Try again.

    Let me know if that helps.

    sorry to bring this back from the dead, but I'm having the same problem as kino. Was this ever solved?

    when I go to get more htc widgets everything functions normally except for the quick record widget. It is the one widget that it won't let me install

    when i click it it says downloading and completes downloading, then moves to installing and then installed never shows up and the widget is not in my widget list

    I can't install the quick record widget. I just got this phone yesterday (replaced my other evo) and quick record worked fine on my other evo.

    Can anybody help?

    Much appreciated
