    Wow, I'm pretty sure that worked for me. We'll see over the next few days. Weird thing is I used to sync Facebook contact, but stopped months ago, before the OTA arrived. I can only imagine that somehow the contacts file was corrupted by the OTA and needed to be created for some reason. I don't think this necessarily has anything to do with Facebook, but a general corruption of the contacts file. We shall see, I hope that fixed the problem for me.

    I can confirm that this method does in fact fix the problem (at least for me);

    OK.. I am also having the super slow response to texts, phone calls & contacts in general when dialing, texting or emailing. Also with the phone number showing & not contact info. Personalized ringtones don't work, my alarms yesterday failed & I'm sporadically not getting texts. So here's what I've done so far...
    - totally cleared contacts cache & cleared contact data.. then reloaded.
    - all FB things are Not synched to contacts
    - I do have GoSMS now.. I had Handcent & it did the same thing.

    After clearing the contacts files, it seemed to help a lot. But a week later, I'm back in the same boat.. I just went in & cleared FB cache & data, despite not being linked or synched. I do not have link suggestions in the contacts. I do not have Twitter. All I have now is a headache.

    Can anyone who has done a factory reset confirm it solved these issues BEYOND just a few days?? Or even beyond a week?? That's quite a hassle for 7-10 days of solution.. ya know??

    Don't waste your time, I did a factory reset and it was great for about 5 days and then it was back to the same nonsense. I am ready to get rid of this phone and jump to Samsung, I text more than anything else with my phone sometimes I am waiting over 30 seconds for text messages to load. And it goes to the phone too, sometimes I dial a number and the phone basically ignores me. HTC should really be doing more about this problem! if anyone knows of a contact email or 800 number for HTC please share....

    The text message delay is really annoying and needs to be fixed. That and getting a phone call and having to answer it or let it go to voicemail before caller ID will tell me who it is. I may be the minority here but I'd be tempted to trade in that functionality for broken multitasking again. Not that we should have to make these types of sacrifices with a "top of the line" phone like this

    I have the same problem with loading messaging, voicemail and people. Hopefully this gets fixed with a Jelly Bean update. And sooner rather than later.

    I have the EXACT same problem. It really pisses me off. I factory reset it once and it helped for like a week. Now it's back to its old self. They need to fix it. I miss alot of calls because I try to wait for the caller I'd to load properly. And the text messages just make me want to throw the phone into a wall because it loads sooooooo slow. Makes me want to ditch HTC altogether

    Same problem here. I did the Contacts trick. Seemed to work for a bit, but now it's back. I'm considering the factory reset, but based on others experience, the problem will still come back. Also, I seem to be having a bad battery drain issue. Not sure if it's related to the Contact issue or not. Sigh, how long until HTC releases an update to fix this? Otherwise, hello Samsung S3...

    Same issue here. Did factory reset twice, the facebook trick and the wiping/reload of contacts. All of these solves the issue temporarily.
    HTC, please fix this. I just bought another evo lte for my daugther because she loved my phone but she hasn't seen the issues yet. She only uses it for games and video.
    I will return that new phone and buy a Samsung if this is not fixed soon. This will probably not happen soon enough so HTC you probably have lost a sale and. if it is not fixed soon, a loyal customer (this is my 3rd HTC in a row).

    This is a work-around until there is a genuine fix that worked for me (and doesn't make fundamental changes to the phone). I'll list all the steps I took but don't know if every step is necessary - but it worked: open People - settings - find duplicates then merge contacts then close. Next, open Settings-Apps and disable older versions of People app (any version that has no data - I had two in addition to the functioning one) and then close settings.

    Text messages have returned to initial speed and no problems have returned. Hope this helps.

    I think the problem is with the phone dialer app itself. Twice my phone has frozen and showed an HTC phone dialer memory problem. The phone dialer accesses contacts. When the phone slows and has the contacts, phone, messaging problems, the phone dialing and caller ID and volume settings and ringtones are all messed up. This seems to be the unifying problem. The phone dialer app. Wonder if we could delete the dialer and use another app.

    It's the contacts app, not the dialer.

    I followed your instructions and was a little nervous to "zap" my contacts. Anyone following these instructions, make sure you read them twice completely before starting. I opted not to do a Force Stop. Once I restarted my phone, I couldn't believe how fast it responded!!! You are awesome! Thanks again.

    Yep definitely, I captured this in OS Monitor, check it out, something is locking the contacts database.

    Not sure what just happened. I went to respond to a text message and messages force closed. I went to reopen the Messages app and all of my texts were gone.

    This phone just gets better and better :O Any way to get the texts back? I did a Google search and didn't see anything regarding recovering the messages. I did set the app to delete after 200 instead of not deleting anything (which is the default), but unfortunately that does nothing for what I lost.

    See that's the strange thing. My wife's EVO 4G Lte has that problem - texts not sending, but mine send all the time. I have the contact lag issue, yet she doesn't.

    Hope whatever update comes, whenever it comes, solves both problems.
