Looking for help with Vlingo.

Using my brand new HTC Sensation 4G :)cool: phone), Vlingo has been removed from Market Place. Moments ago, I installed Vlingo via Amazon's Market Place, but Vlingo forcecloses on me. It seems to work for others using the HTC Sensation 4G, but I'm not finding definite answers with thorough instructions on what steps they took to make it work. I read something about a Vlingo apk, but I have had no luck with the APK install.

Any suggestions from an HTC Sensation 4G user...who currently has Vlingo installed and working on their Sensation? Thanks.....in advance for your assistance.

Soudontsay,

this doesn't exactly answer your question, as I'm unable to get Vlingo for the same reasons as you. But I have an answer straight from Vlingo in a personal email from customer support that will explain the BS you and I are going through (which renders hands free useless!). I was frustrated because the ENTIRE point in buying the new phone and latest technology bluetooth head set (Jawbone ERA or Blueant Q2) was to have TRULY 100% hands free texting (while driving). Texts read thru head set, and answered with 100% voice commands and zero touching of or looking at the actual phone.

So I get my Jawbone ERA a week after the Sensation, I'm all psyched, and then WHAM-0, as of August 31 Vlingo has decided that:

"Unfortunately, after much investigation, our engineers discovered a functionality issue with the software on the HTC Sensation device. Subsequently, the device has been removed from Vlingo's list of supported devices. Our engineers are currently working on a fix to the issue, and hope to resolve it in the very near future..... best regards, Ari, Vlingo Support"

I hope they're right about very near future, because I do NOT need a $130 bluetooth head set that can't even read to ME, let alone allow me to read back, hand's free. I'm in a no cell phone state, and must have hands free.

My personal opinion? They actually have some secret contract with Sprint or Samsung in general to pull it from HTC Android 2.3 gingerbread phones (at least at Tmobile) all together. Because this news came out EXACTLY at the same time as an announcement that #1 competitor to the Sensation on T-Mobile in the USA is the soon-to-be-released Galaxy S2 on Sprint which will come PRELOADED with Vlingo for Android 2.3+, and will be a major commercial selling and marketing point for the device itself.
