This is a very important story for the millions of you that are currently using HTC Sense’s htcsense.com to sync your contacts, messages, footprints and call history. HTC has sent out an email this morning to HTCsense.com users saying that they are shutting down those servies on April 30, 2012.
HTC says they have something new in the works, however we’re not sure what that possibly could be. It strikes us as an odd move, especially because HTC Sense 4.0 devices are about to ship with the htcsense.com sync available.
HTC gives complete details on how to keep your data in the email that they sent out. The email in it’s entirety is below the break
Dear HTCSense.com customer, HTCSense.com is undergoing a renovation to improve the services and value we deliver to customers like you. Until the new services are ready, features previously available on HTCSense.com will be shutting down. If you have been using HTCSense.com to sync your Contacts, Messages, Footprints or Call History, you can download your data through April 30, 2012 . After April 30, your data will no longer be accessible and will be deleted. Download your .zip file by following these steps:

|•||Click the ‘Download’ button in the Account Overview section|
