    i just got the Incredible 2, and as soon as i synced my contacts to the facebook htc sense, some of the names won't show up in my messages function. i have tried to deleting them and re adding them, and i can NOT figure out what's wrong, and it's really aggravating. any ideas?

    I am also having this problem, but only for certain contacts. I'm very frustrated because I cannot figure out what the deal is.

    Had the same issue right after installing the GB update. Ended up hard resetting the phone and everything has worked perfectly since. It's no fun returning everything to how you had it but I looked at it as a minor inconvenience to make it run correctly.

    if worse comes to worse you can try a factory reset on your phone and and re synce your google g mail accout to you phone and see if that fixes the problom...
    and if that dosent work you can try a 3rd party SMS app from the market
    Go SMS Pro
    Handcent SMS
    and Chop SMS

    all three are realy good apps

    hope that helped some

    Yay, turns out restarting it again did work. Still don't know what caused it but it's fixed now
