    I just Hard-Reset my phone a few days ago to get rid of the "Low Memory" warning. However, I'm now having a few issues with the new setup.

    1: I have a number of contacts that have drastically multiplied. There will be about 16 contacts that all have the same name and pretty much no information. The worst part is, as yet, none of these are contacts that I actually contact. They are all people from Facebook that are really just acquaintances (all that I have noticed so far).

    I'm not sure if this is because I Exported a vCard of my Hotmail and exchange email addresses and then reimported them later (though that seems very unlikely).


    2: Gmail has trouble loading old messages. If I try to scroll down to a message a month or so old, it will allow me to scroll down and load more messages a few times, but after a few loads, it will FC (I have tried it repeatedly and it does it every time at the same spot).


    3: Handcent is running much much more slowly. I originally started using it because the HTC message app was so slow. However, I now have almost no messages (relatively speaking) and yet each time I open the app, it lags for a good 5-10 seconds before loading.


    I suppose that's it for now. I will post later if I notice anything I've left out.

    Yep...I had the same problem. Removing the FB update and sync did nothing. It came to the point where dialer, people, handcents, and mail would not even open. I had to do a factory reset.

    Stupid question...what's the difference between a hard re-set and a factory re-set?

    No difference at all

    Soft reset = turn off then back on
    Hard reset = factory reset
