    When I go to open either handcent or the stock messenger app it takes about 30 seconds for all of the message threads to show up within the app. This seems to happen about 50 percent of the time. Is this happening to anyone else? Any fixes?

    I'm having an issue now trying to switch from Handcent back to using stock. Stock messaging won't show me any of the messages I already have. When I select a conversation, it displays Loading... and just spings endlessly. I've let it sit for several minutes, cleared the cache in the stock messaging app, uninstalled Handcent, and rebooted twice. Still nothing.

    I haveuprooted, e issue on two evo lte's. It seems to be a slow down loading anything in the messaging and contact app. For example, if I try to compose a sms, there is no slow down until I try and enter a recipient. The normal auto complete simply doesn't function for 30-60 seconds. If I press the contacts button, it takes 30-60 seconds to load, then works normally.

    I also noticed it does the same thing with incoming calls, as it won't resolve the contact name, and instead just shows the number.

    So far I've tried clearing my contacts app data, and re syncing, with no effect. Both phones are running stock firmware, are unrooted and only started having problems since the last update.

    I am seeing the same thing. I have done the same as conquereddroiduser with the same results.

    This has become a serious problem for me, it can take up to 2 minutes to try to check a text. I've cleared my cache and deleted my messages. Any ideas?

    I am also having this issue. Using stock messenger. It randomly takes a long time to load a conversation, and the auto complete for contacts hangs. That last issue also occurs in the HTC calendar app when creating an entry and trying to invite someone.

    I had this problem, as other suggested a factory reset was the only way to resolve it. Now it's fine.

    I started seeing my text messages wouldn't send,but I could send a multimedia text mssg. Then I couldn't call anything except 611. Technical support remotely adjusted my account/phone and everything got better.

    I have the exact same issues as the OP. I've tried everything! It's even slow after you press "Send"... the text message log takes at least 20 seconds to catch up. Same with opening up the "People" app.

    Any ideas that could fix it? Is it really a corrupt file issue? Factory reset the only fix?

    That seemed to have fixed it for me. I was starting to think it was something to do with contacts, and not my text messages (only about 1000 messages).

    Ive left FB sync off for now, probably not needed.

    Seems to have worked for me too. I was being brave (and possibly a bit careless) and went back into Facebook afterwards and chose "Sync Existing Contacts" rather than "Sync All". I can always fix it if/when it begins to get sluggish. So far so good though.

    Thanks for the help!

    I have to do this about every month, or else it slows down again.
    Maybe Jelly Bean will fix this issue?

    I've disabled the Facebook sync and it still has problems. I'm guessing only a hard reset will fix this issue

    I assume that you followed the full instructions here -> http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-4g-...ml#post4989279

    If all you did was disable the Facebook sync, that alone will not fix it. You need to disable the Google sync, clear the contacts data and restart the device and turn oly Google contact sync back on leaving the Facebook sync off.

    Agreed. I tried disabling all my contact syncs (Facebook, Twitter, GroupMe, etc.) one at a time for several days each and none of that fixed the problem, until I followed the directions above to purge all my phone contacts and re-sync from Google.

    Here's something that's helped me,

    Goto your Contact List. Up at the top it will have Link Suggestions and Facebook Suggestions. Clear that out by either linking or dismissing. My text app worked just fine after doing this. I've got 600+ LinkedIn connections, 500+ Facebook friends and 23k ppl following me on Twitter (@tonylibations - shameless plug) and they're all trying to link together. I have to do this every few days.
    Good luck, friends!

    I have no linked contacts to anything, I have 116 contacts and they are all google contacts (none on phone). Ever since the update 9 times out of 10 my text messaging app is epically slow. Of course that 10th time is always when I'm trying to make a point of how slow it is to someone. Besides waiting on an update any ideas?

    Also it just seems that with the update we traded sense reloads for anything contact related being really slow. Either way we're just waiting for things to load, hopefully they can do better instead of just moving the problem around.
