    Have you tried clearing data for HTC Sense under manage applications? If that doesn't work, you may need a factory reset

    Are you using a task killer by chance? One that closes ALL tasks, even ones that shouldn't be? That could be the problem too...

    Gingerbread is very strict with background usage of RAM and while using application that take up a large amount of RAM in the for front it closes down more applications in the background. Happened with the EVO 4G Gingerbread update and the EVO Shift Gingerbread update. (I dont know about the DINC Gingerbread update though). Thats my explanation of Sense crashing, but that's if your going from a large Application like Gun Bros or using your browser for like 30 mins, Sense will restart itself.

    FIX: root?

    I don't have the issue of Sense force closing but 90% of the time when I exit an app, such as K9 mail, calendar, etc. I see the green HTC on the white background then "loading" before going back to the main screen. Is this Sense crashing? It did this sometimes before the GB update but now it's doing it more often since the GB update. I'll try clearing cache on Sense to see if that makes any difference. No new apps installed but updates to existing ones only.

    Sense was crashing 4-5x per day on my T-Mobile Amaze. I uninstalled the recent Lookout Security update and it seems to have fixed the problem, at least for the time being. It's a shame T-Mobile won't let us completely remove Lookout (and other) unneeded/unwanted apps.

    The problem may be solved once the TBolt gets the ICS update with Sense 3.6. Of course, the problem is we don't know exactly when that is going to happen, although there are indications it may be soon (there have been leaks of a test rom).

    Have you tried rooting your phone and installing a DE-BLOATED ROM?. I did 6 months ago and while my phone will restart on it's own maybe 1 or 2 times a week....if that, it is better than it was with STOCK Gingerbread.

    Where is this?!?!?!?!!!

    An *actual* leaked ROM with Sense 3.6?!?

    (and not just the alpha AOSP with no working data ROM?)

    My sense crashes all the time too. About 50% of the time, when I press the home button, sense has to reload itself including all the icons on my home screen. This has been happening the past two weeks and it makes me wonder if ICS is coming soon to fix this.

    I have the same issue... am on 3g/4g or wifi wherever I go. Have made my battery last 3 days with just mobile network on and clear cashe every 30 mins or so with Speed Boost System Cleaner FREE and still have the issue with sense restarting at least 5-10 times a day. o pull out my battery and let it cool for about 5 mins abut 2-3 times a week. I am up to date and eagerly waiting for ICS and Sense 3.6.. checking everyday and night for the update...

    Funny, never had a "sense crash" I don't think. Don't even know what one looks like. I dunno... it just works for me.

    I had this same problem about a month ago. Almost everytime I pressed home it would just show my wallpaper image and would take a few seconds to load all apps and widgets. I noticed this after installing an app. I removed the app and haven't had the problem since. For the life of me I can't remember what it was. Must not have been that great anyway. Had you installed anything right before the problem started?

    Another trick that I find that helps me a lot is when it does it a couple times in a row I just pull out the battery. I did it today and it is working fine now.
