    Hi All.

    This is my first post here. Got my Desire recently and i am loving the phone. Like other i was having battery issues but following the advice here i was able to extend the battery life considerably, so im hoping someone here may know something about an issue om having.

    Im using the Handscent app for text messaging. However over the last week or so when i go to open a new message, the application freezes and shuts down. When i go to open it again all my messages are deleted. They are also missing in the standard messaging app that came with the phone.

    Has this happened to anyone else? If it did did you find a way to stop it happening?

    Sounds like something is getting corrupted. If it stores messages on a MicroSD card, try formatting it (backup your data first!) - otherwise I don't know what to suggest :(

    There's an option in both handcent and the default app to remove old messages.

    Make sure these arent ticked.
