    I am using PE5.0.1 and lately i have been having some issues with it. As of late, I have had problems sending and receiving text messages. I use an old version of handcent cuz i always here of problems with the updated versions, and many times, it will show the rotating "sending" circle constantly after i attempt to send a text, and so it will never send, or it will send hours after i wrote it. Also, when attempting to make phone calls, the dialer will force close and so i cannot make calls. Then later, all of a sudden, it will call every number i attempted to dial earlier. Sometimes the dialer works and sometimes it doesn't. Also, when i connect my droid to my car to listen to music, it will randomly skip and the volume up and down buttons become unresponsive. Also, my phone definitely seems to be slower in general. I was thinking of just backing everything up, then doing a full wipe, and reinstalling PE5.0. What do you guys think? Has anyone else had these issues? Or know of how to go about fixing them?

    It sounds like you had a bad flash paired with restores of apps not compatible with GB.

    I say you should do a full wipe (3 times) re-install PE5.0.1 clean, let your apps re-install from the market (including the new version of handcent), then update to 5.0.2 and see if anything changes.

    Reflash like Stavendor said. Do 5.0.1 and then 5.0.2.

    See if that doesn't help. If the txting problem continues try a few things:

    1.) test stock messaging app to see if the problem continues
    2.) update handcent and see if problem continues
    3.) You can try locking handcent into memory. (Feature in 5.0.2)

    I would also hold back on doing any kernel work till after you've confirmed it's working.

    thanks guys..i ended up backing up the rom, then i wiped x 3, and restored a fresh install of the 5.0 rom that i had back when it came out. in that backup, i let the market restore all my apps, then backed it up. i had done nothing else to it. so after i restored it, i just updated handcent to the latest version and restored data stuff like texts, playlists, etc, then updated it to 5.0.2. So i basically restored my phone to a prior state where i wasn't having any issues. So far, everything is working smoothly. Texts are sending correctly, i can make phone calls, and music player is working fine. Hopefully it stays that way cuz PE is a great rom.

    Appreciate the suggestions. Thanks.
