With the line-up and prices of phones coming out, i don't see myself upgrading.. my htc desire can still keep up with the newer phones out there.. got tired of my capdase leather case, returned to my original silicon case so i could "see" the phone.. what a beauty!
[deleted post]dude most searched or most interest dosent mean its a popular thing always....everyday people like me search and want know or just click to see many phones....so it dose not mean that htc desire is not one the most sold phone of the year............i got desire and europa it dosent mean i dont like iphone or nokia,but u provide a good info....thanks
My desire was running on Gengerbread 2.3.1. From yesterday It was not switching on. After power on only the Oxygen diplayes but the OS is not booting up as well as phone is not working indeed....!! Any possible solution???
Jameel Hussain, 29 Aug 2011Please people- Please dont buy this phone or for any matter any HTC phone! HTC sucks! They are... moreI admit that you were extremely unlucky with two faulty units, but there are millions of customers who are happy with their HTC phones.
"They are the worst phone makers in this world right now. I have had a really bad experience using HTC phone." Just because YOU had a really bad experience doesn't make anybody the worst anything in the world.
"DIE HTC DIE!!" Yes this is the kind of argumented discussion that will make everybody believe you when you say "u have been warned".
I understand that the situation made you angry, but do not think that you are "doing a work of humanity" with your post. You are just venting off.
Please people- Please dont buy this phone or for any matter any HTC phone! HTC sucks! They are the worst phone makers in this world right now. I have had a really bad experience using HTC phone. First I bought HTC Desire and within a month of purchase it had the overheating reboot problem. After much effort with HTC service, they finally agreed to give me a replacement with HTC Desire S. Now I was using a brand new HTC Desire S and after less than a month usage today it got another problem which is that the phone internal speaker has stopped working.. I really hate HTC for doing this to me.. Please please I am doing a work of humanity here.. DONT BUY THIS OR ANY OTHER HTC PHONE and if you still chose to buy beware that u have been warned...!! DIE HTC DIE!!
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2011please help as i have mine for about 7 months now and i cannot use it for more than 5-10 minut... morehi there,yes u can hate ur phone but dont hate htc desire,whats about before this months when u use it i mean when it was new?did u try to upgrade it or find out whats the problem....??
for ur help if u dont find anything do 1 thing backup ur device(by using usb and also sync it)then do a hard reset(u will find it in settings>sd & phone memo>factory data reset)remember everything u downloaded,ur contacts,sms...will be delelted and then u will gat a almost new ph again,the battery should get fell newer and try only install those apps u need,u can get a app manager or task killer to avoid battery draining by unused apps,then fully discharge the battery once(0%)then charge it full,hopefully u will get a better performance,and check ur battery isnt damaged already!thanks
please help as i have mine for about 7 months now and i cannot use it for more than 5-10 minutes doing basic stuff like internet as the phone keeps rebooting about 6-7 times continously, why is this? i hate this phone now as the battery dont seem to be a problem the phone just shuts down like its crazy...anyone having the same problem.
Root, 22 Aug 2011I just switched from Samsung Galaxy Mini to HTC Desire, and a couple of questions -
1. No in... morehi...
im a desire user for 6months now. and im still loving my phone. il try to answer ur question based on my personal opinion..
1.theres no built in task manager in desire cos i,personally, think that it is not a necessity when toggling between apps and functions. the desire do have a built in, should i say, Task Memory. just by holding the home key,8 of ur recently used app will be shown for u to access them again (not to kill them).
i believe task manager is not needed for desire is Intelligent enuf to manage which of ur apps should be turned off. 3rd party task managers are available but i dont personally use them... they'r, 4me, useless...
2.file managers...? hmm... why would you need 1 in desire? i actually downloaded a file managing app but i never used it. you would definitely place all ur files in ur mmc cos desire's memory isnt big. so i think using a file manager in a desire isnt relly needed..
3.launchers can be used by holding the home button in the home screen.. from there you'll be able to switch between home screens of ur preference. i previously downloaded and used for sometime a windows phone 7 launcher. it was great.. really feels like having wp7 home screen but the functionality of an android...
but now im back to the native sense... love its widgets..
raj, 21 Aug 2011How did u updated it to 2.3.3, plz tell me plz.?????????yes u can upgrade it (i think u already got the link) but if u r not a advance user(i mean if u dont need it coz u will not notice any major difference!)dont do it,coz its still developing...not the final release,thanks
Larissa, 12 Aug 2011Please, one question This phone can ready .doc or .ppt?? This have windows mobile? Than... moreyes u desire can read doc and pdf .... u can download as many apps u need to read or write :) if u want...thanks
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2011I ve an HTC desire and I can't use it for more than 4 hours without charging, so i was wonderi... morehi there,yes htc desire has 1 power problem,since its a very high performing multimedia ph u need to do some sacrifice to use it like dont use ur ph unnecessary!yes if u always use it for hearing mp3s or watching vdos or playing games alltogether then u can not use any of the ph till date more then 4-5 hrs!!!
what i mean u can hear music for 10-12 hrs....or watch a decent vdo for 2-3 hrs......or play games for 1-2 hrs.....then u have to stop doing something like these and u will find ur ph alive like for a day ... yes u need to close all the apps u used perfectly(otherwise they will run in background and this is the main reson of draining the power!!)u can download a app like app killer and run that to clear all ur unused spps running,that will really help!!!
i do think i am also using my desire like u(for music,browsing,games...)but i am happy with the desire!thanks
Remon, 24 Aug 2011Hey....this phone is really great...works fast and has many application...but i have a problem... moreu can restart the ph and check it again,call vf if they have any problem or check ur area network...and there is another final way backup ur device that reset it(everything,files,settings will be del!)....it should work........
otherwise goto a vf centre!thanks
