Here's a little information that HTC users using Sense.com, it appears HTC has reported that they will be discontinuing Sense.com on April 30. 2012 and setting up their own cloud base option for users...   Check out the response letter at https://www.htcsense.com/messages/service_change

Looks like HTC may be stepping into the game of cloud storage and this could be a nice change...  Hope there is full truth in this response because I would love to see this come to light.

I didn't even realize that the HTC Thunderbolt was actually support by HTCSense.  I remember checking it out when I first got the Tbolt, but the service wasn't available for the phone so I stopped looking at it.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I understand that the Thunderbolt does not support it on stock roms only but since this is for the HTC devices and there isn't any area just for the HTC devices I figured I would post on the TB thread because this is the device I am using... 

Also from what I heard it was going to be a official option for TB users when ICS hit but now this looks like a change in the plan..

it does work with other roms though, and it was a pretty nice feature. it's a shame they are doing away with it, unless they go cloud based and offer similar features.....AND make it compatible with the stock rom.

From what I have read it appears that this may be the case, they are working to make the feature cload base and if users download addon plugins they will be stored on that users devices cload storage...  This is just a first opinion but if this is what they are shooting for it should be a nice change...
