    Ok, it all started with removing my facebook account and re-adding it (so that the contact pictures would update in the people app)

    now as per most htc phones untill apps2sd becomes available, the amount of storage on the phone could fit into a match box with the matches still in.

    So just before my phone went crazy, i noticed that in the people section there was my google contact and two facebook contacts for every person i looked at.

    So i guess when i deleted my facebook for htc sense account it didnt delete the previous contact photos like its done previously.

    so now i have about 10kb of memory on my phone, as soon as i wake the screen up all i get is force closed message for every single app/ program whatever ive got on my phone, and yes you guessed it i cant do sod all now with my phone..

    ok a little angry but can someone suggest what i can do, done a battery pull and thats about the height of my knowledge in these situations - it did nothing.

    have i bricked it?

    Maybe try starting it in safe mode?

    MINI GUIDE: How to Start Your Desire in Safe-Mode

    I'm not sure if that'll free up enough memory for you to correct the issue though.

    If you're completely desperate there's always the factory reset but that'd be your last option.

    Good luck!

    Try this -

    After startup, force close (you will prob still get this popup whilst doing this, so just force close again)

    1. Press the Search button on your phone
    2. Type in Settings and select it from the results
    3. Select Applications > Manage Applications > HTC Sense > Clear Data
    4. Press the Home button
    5. You should now see the default wallpaper and widgets
    This will NOT clear all of your user data, so you'll still have contacts, sms call logs and apps etc..

    Give it a try, worked for me!
