    Ok my friend go this phone and she is having some trouble. Hoping someone can help her out. She says she didn't install anything before her sense UI stopped working. Right now she has the regular android UI going and she cant get it back. I had this happen once, but when i restarted it asked me to chose which one i wanted to use and that fixed it right away, but it doesn't do that for her. Is there an option somewhere or does anyone know of another way to get it back?

    A quick google search yielded the answer to turn it off, so turning it on is the same way just slightly altered:
    How to: Turn off HTC Sense | AndroidGuys

    1. Press MENU button.
    2. Press Settings.
    3. Press Applications.
    4. Press Manage Applications.
    5. Wait for the OS to compute application usage.
    6. Scroll down the list until you see HTC Sense and select it to go to the Application Info page.
    7. Press the Clear Defaults button.
    8. Press the HOME button. You will be prompted to select which app to compete the action with. Select Sense and choese to make this the default action.

    If you don't opt to make it your default, you can make the choice each time. This gives a completely seperate set of screens and options to use, almost like another Sense UI "Scene."

    If she is using the vanilla ui she will need to clear the defaults under "home" not Sence. everything else is correct

    Not that I would want to do this, but I wonder if there is a way to completely uninstall Sense. Yes, you can turn it off - but there are other Sense applications that continue to run (messaging, dialer, etc.). I did some Google searching, but couldn't find too much of anything.

    BTW, if it happens again and you can't remember or have access to all those steps, their is an application in the market called, 'Home Switcher' which does this too just by launching this app and selecting HTC Sense as the default homescreen instead of the native Android Home.
