I have a att titan 2 unlocked for tmobile. It worked great for about 2 weeks. No MMS and only edge though. No big deal since I have a WiFi hotspot. Anyway after working great for about 2 weeks my live tiles want update. I've tried deleting and reinstalling the apps but they just want work. Anybody know what I can do? I really don't wanna do a master reset. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

- Could you name the specific apps? Will make it easier to work out if it's a problem with specific apps, and if so how to resolve those issues.
- Have you check the settings of each app? Make sure you turn on settings like "enable Live Tile" or "run background task".
- Have a look in Settings -> applications -> background tasks to see if the background tasks that update the tiles are running.

There are certain apps that have issued with live tiles . Weather Bug for example is one of them. Are all of your live tiles not working or just a few this could make a difference.

USAToday, wpcentral, Engadget, fox, HTC hub,etc.
The settings are right in the app. I've tried turning off live tile powering off and turning back on. I tried deleting app and reinstalling.
Under settings I disabled everything and powered off. I then went under settings and turned them back on and still my live tiles want work.
I couldn't find that thread. If somebody has a link I'd appreciate it.
I've got a HD7 that is a clone of my titan 2 and it's working great. I mean if you go down my apps page they are 100% identical. Also my Titan 2 was working great for about 2 weeks before it quit working right. I just hate to do a reset because it took me about 2 days to download all my apps and set them up. Plus all my favorites I had to put in my browser.

Remember that an app will automatically disable its Background Task if you don't open it for 14 days. Go to Settings>Applications>Background Tasks and see which tasks are running. If not already checked, toggle turn on background task the next time I run this app. Then open the app.
Note that some Background Tasks can take up to 24 hours to refresh the first time. And you MUST have a continuous Data connection for them to work.

Strange, I've just noticed this bug with my titan as well. Apps that rely on background tasks are not working such as BBC, Engadget, HTC Hub...
Apps that rely on notifications work fine, Kik, Whatsapp etc.
Tried uninstalling, repining, restarting the phone and the problem persists. Any other ideas?
