Have a Vodafone branded unlocked phone here in Pakistan.

Received the OTA update yesterday. Everything works fine except for the messaging app which force closes everytime I open it. Tried wiping and reinstalling all apps, tried deleting all messages, still no luck. Handcent works fine though. Anyone else having this problem?

did it work before the update?

which update did you go? 2.42 or 2.50?

I have encountered a small problem since the update.

I downloaded a new skin from HTC Hub (Music lover) and the 'Download Complete' notification will not go away.

I tried deleting the skin and downloading it again. Now there's 2 notifications. Clicking on them takes me to the skin picker page. I have tried turning my phone off/on, this didn't help. Neither did applying the skin, or manually force stopping HTC Hub and Skin picker.

I feel like there should be an easy way to solve this.

Any suggestions?
My solution is to download the skin again but cancel it when downloading. The icon will disappear and the downloaded skin remains.

    Have you already talked about it with HTC?

    Ok you need to breathe buddy, it's just been announced it will most probably take a month before it will be available on HTC as they need to incorporate Sense to it.

    Hopefully that makes more sense to you than it does to me!
    The scrolling in all apps is not sluggish, but it is changed. Before you were scrolling all the applications and now the apps are divided in pages and you scroll one page at a time.
    Just a matter of habit. Some people complain about this because they are used to the old style. Give it some time. I don't have problem with it because all my apps are in folders on a home screen and did not use it much - so no old habit.
    Fingers crossed it will be out soon. I thought it would have been released by now. Has it been released on the nexus one yet? Im guessing it would be pushed out to that first as it does not require sense or any carrier customisation.
