    The SMS app LOVES to FC if you're holding the phone in landscape orientation. I can almost do it on demand. Hold the phone upright while opening up the app or a specific message.

    (Kind of read's like an Apple solution :()

    Have you tried one of the aftermarket SMS applications? Handcent or Chomp perhaps.

    Yeah, I haven't read too much about that type of error persisting even after the factory data reset. Did it begin immediately after the update? Not to offend, but you're certain it was a hard reset and not a power cycle? I just don't know what type of background you have, and just wondered. :(

    No worries, I did the ota to 2.1 then did a hard reset (wiped out all my app's..etc) then shortly after that when I text it FC once in while, well once a day I should say.

    Well that sounds like you took all the recommended steps. Unfortunate you still get the FC. There is a method to turn off the native SMS notifications I believe, if you're getting duplicated notifications now that you're using Chomp. Give Handcent a shot too if you have time, it seems to be the more popular of the two.

    thanks, I found that turn off setting on the native SMS.
    I like chomp beter because of the widget, I don't like just an icon for SMS

    I've received exactly two text messages since the OTA and both of them ended in a force close. I have no idea how I was holding the darn thing.
