    If it's anything like the iphone "find my phone" feature, the only time the service updates the location is when you request it.

    But I have the find my phone turned off!! :/ And the HTC Sense synch seems to run all the time, with the little double arrow circles in the notification window just spinning away!!

    Plus, my htcsense.com only shows the dashboard are they going to update it so it can take messages and backup the phone too like the desire if anyone knows?

    htcsense.com says the initial sync can take several hours.

    That is very concerning for anyone without an unlimited plan. Using NetCounter (found on market), I determined that I used 6MB synching my Gmail and Facebook. I synched with HTCSense.com, but the website says my phone is not fully synched yet.

    When i goto htcsense.com, I can't see anything synching on there, but I have find my phone turned off. Are there other options that should be showing under there too. I have absolutely no options on that website except like make my phone ring and erase it and what not or make changes to my account via the account option.

    My text and contacts do not show up on htcsense.com

    Its still in Beta, as it indicates when you first go there. In time, it will become more feature rich.

    I have the ability to forward calls and messages, lock or erase the phone, and also make it ring at full volume. Additionally, if you click above the map to find your phone, that works also. Map sure you select the right country. I did, but had to go back and reselect for it to work. The map just sat on west africa, lol.

    A lot of us have had unlimited data plans and AT&T grandfathers them if you have had them. If you didn't then you can't get one unfortunately.

    Hi guys....my first post as I just received my Desire HD (Canada) on Thursday.

    I've already racked up +400MB of data and I have a 1GB limit. By using Spare Parts it tells me that Locations has used 427MB. I had Phone Finder turned on and the HTC weather updated when ever the home screen was accessed. I assume that the weather widget won't work unless the GPS is active, and I assume that will cause the phone to constantly send data.

    Is this correct? Can someone confirm this?

    My HTC SENSE seems to sync a lot as well. I know that the little sync icon shows up on my phone almost every 5-10 minutes. I am not sure what it is doing. I went into options and its always HTC Sense that is syncing. I have it set to sync every 3 hours but it seems to do it whenever it wants. I am not sure what the deal is.
