    Hi guys, I got an HTC Radar and updated from 7.5 to 7.8 yesterday. I use seven eighter tool to force update.

    After the update, I was able to change the tile sizes but the additional accent colors are not there. And most, importantly I cannot open any old and incoming SMS messages. In addition, when I go to settings, some items are not opening (mobile network, about...)

    Then when I connect to Zune, it says there a new update so i updated. And still, I can't open SMS messages. So I tried restoring but it Zune say's it can't restore.

    Any suggestions. This useless update *ucked my phone.

    Check your time zone. It must have changed. Date and time settings might have changed after update. Reset it and restart phone.

    Hi, nope, there's no effect. I can't still open any old or new SMS. It's coming back to the home screen.

    Check your time zone. It must have changed. Date and time settings might have changed after update. Reset it and restart phone.

    I am having the same problem! I also used the same update software to force update on my htc Radar. Even though I was able to restore, my messaging still crashes and returns to the home screen. My time zones is displaying correctly, and my calling still works. Please help.

    Sounds like you may need a hard reset. Something with the update jas confused your phone. Your 7.8 update will stick through the reset. Make a good backup first though.

    Then via settings - make a factory restore and this will clean out the conflicting errors. This shouldn't have happened in the first place.

    Still same problem and even hard reseting it did nothing as well. I wondered if it was because of the language packs I installed?
