    Maybe you froze or removed the wrong app. Someone here uninstalled an app and now he is having a problem, he is waiting for someone to email the app to him. Also, someone made a backup via titanium and he had a problem restoring it. At this early stage after release I would only go so far as freezing apps.

    Yeah i know i only froze the apps from that list. Didn't remove any apps. Calls & yahoo mail work with sound. Not sure what i did. Can i do a reset? or should i just unfreeze everything?


    UPDATE: Just unfroze everything from that list & my text sounds works again. Just have to find out what stopped it in the first place.

    Let us know when you find out which app it was so others will know not to freeze it.

    Please let us know if you narrow it down. I couldn't replicate your issue and I have everything in the list frozen. Then again I use Handcent for texting so my situation is different than yours.

    I would LOVE to remove BackupAssistant and VZW Location Services they're both completely inferior to the respective Google counterparts. Anyone know if these are safe to freeze / uninstall?

    Yes removing Yahoo Contacts breaks the phones normal Contacts app. For a good list of apps you can safely remove you can go to the D3 Section on XDA and look for Petes Bloat Removal Tool and it'll show what you can remove. I'll post a link or list when I'm done college later today.
