I currently have a blackberry and im thinking about getting a HTC desire. When you go on the internet and close out to check a message, does it restart the internet or does it stay where you left it?

Lancalot, 07 Dec 2010oh..and i just updated to 'Gingerbread' (Android 2.3) :-DI've had this phone for about 2 months now and I love it! I previously had the nokia n95 8gb for 3 years and then the n8 for a week (before sending it back for being shit)
Have you really updated to android version 2.3? As I recently had a firmware update that started with the number 2.3 but it wasn't actually 'gingerbread'. If you have actually got gingerbread how did you get it? Share the love man!
I love this phone its amazing, all the people that moan about it and bad mouth it are liars and clearly make it up! Its an amazing phone and tbh it looks nicer than the new nexus phone..

All feature and function is okay accept the battery life. is there any way to extend the battery life. like changing to high battery or by updating software ?
i've had my Desire 8 months now. it's amazing and quite pitiful to see/ read people complaining and badmouthing this handset. makes me wonder if they were just one of the few unlucky ones or they just trying there utmost best to wrongfully discredit this phone.
Anyways... many people have been asking about this phone cause they're interested in buying. Well...from a guy who has had this handset for 8 months i can tell you that i absolutely love it. it's the best thing that has ever happened to me.Sense is great (hopes it gets better). Android is topnotch. i think it has the best (could be one of the best?)on-screen keyboard. love the multi-tasking.
But as with everything, it has its downfalls, and i so wish that they can be addressed in a later version but with the exact built (just love the built, shape of the phone)
(1)Battery life is....i'll admit.... horrible, unacceptable.
(2) would love a front facing/ secondary camera for video calls and so forth
(3) Internal memory is a bummer...a big one. yeah you can put apps that automatically install on internal in the SD, but only some. and plus even for some apps, although you put then on the SD card, the component that on the internal is still too large. the low internal memory restricts your download capability or the amount of apps you can have stored; i always have to keep deleting apps, making space for new ones, and thats no fun.
(4) sometimes i find opening certain folders like 'messages' can be a bit slow. dont know if this because of the low internal memory, not me not deleting messages (unlimited amount), or the processor.
I've been with Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, I've claimed to be a loyalist to each one of them respectively, but i think i'm pretty certain when i say i'll stick to HTC; their quality is just great. don't regret my purchase.
*would love an offical msn messenger app.
for those who are not familiar with Android it is hard to start using, but as soon as you undestand the way you have to deal with Android I guarantee you: the best OS I tried till now. Don't give up that easy, and be patient and explore your phone!! And believe me if you do it for yourself by exploring and trying it is better than call to assistance, because in the first way, you hardly will forget the steps to do something you want. Hope I helped and good luck, you have one of the greastst phones (till now of course) there:-)
phone iz gud......need to increase internal memory...and capability to operate in SD mode when charging through usb......othere wise the phone made my life.........gud one......

1) You have a faulty unit.
2) You are stupid and cannot operate a mobile phone.
3) You're an Apple fanboy trying to defame the phone.
It took me 15 mins to set up my Desire, which included 3 exchange emails, 2 hotmails, 1 gmail, custom settings for call forwarding and much more. I even changed the UI layout to suit my needs. I added network specific sim card settings, set up the bluetooth and wifi and pretty much everything else under the sun.
The best part of this anecdote is that I am not very tech savvy, but I still worked it all out no sweat.
If it took you a day with tech support to achieve nothing, that you probably should not be allowed in public places without a carer.
As you said, all the reviews are good. This would be for a reason... don't you think? This phone is certainly no lemon.
I just got this phone today,I don't know about why the reviews are for me this phone is dumb not smart,I tried to configure it all day spoke with tech support,looks like a lemon to me,

Ps I have been using the desire for 4 months and I love it I don't have to use my laptop for the internet most of the time because the desire internet is as good as a computer the only bad thing with it is the poor battery & the low sound on the back speaker. I think its the best smartphone I have ever used
