For all those facing restarting problem...its because the battery is loose...fix a small folded piece of paper at one end of the battery near the bottom of the phone...to make the battery tighter

I bought this phone in Jan13 and facing following probs:
Prob1) Phone restarts on its own - ####NOT SOLVED####
Haven't found a solution to this yet. Taking for service and have to check if it helps.
(1a) Called support and tried using 'Safe Mode' by pressing Vol- button during start/boot. Did not help
(1b) Tried restoring factory settings and reformatted storage card. Did not help
(1c) Uninstalled recent apps that I felt could cause prob, but not solved
Prob2) Memory keeps getting full
Soln:
(2a)Found that photo thumbnails uses a lot of memory. So if you have too many pics, move to backup on PC or external device.
(2b) Install app DiskUsage and delete the thumbnail memory
(2c) Chrome uses unbelievably high memory. Uninstall updates and disable the app
Other than above probs I liked the phone in terms of display, game performance, music and photo quality

I have been using HTC desire since 16 months in this duration,I have submitted the device 3 times to the service center.
1st time - Abnormal switch off, hence replaced Mother board
2nd time - sim slot issue, SMS was not being delivered
3rd time - Touch panel issue,
disgusted with this phone.. Never purchase this phone.

I have used this phone for more than a year, and it is a very reliable phone. I have not had any issues with it. I don't know why the other comments here keeps on telling that this is a bad phone over and over, but it is not. They may just be online trolls who were paid to make this phone look bad so no one will buy it. I'm quiet sure, HTC has a quality team who check each product they manufacture, thus, HTC is a known brand for its quality products.

i bought this HTC Desire SV black last February 2, 2014. after almost 3 weeks of using, the unit began restarting again and again. so we brought it to the accredited service center and it took vacation there for more than 3 months. it was just last monday that we got hold of it and now we have another problem. the second sim is not functioning so we have to bring it back again to the service center.

HTC Desire Sv is the worst phone i ever bought in my lifetime and now i have promised that i will never ever buy a HTC product and make my friends aware too. I bought this phone in india when i went there for a holiday and after 10 months suddenly one day i switched it of while sleeping and the next day when i wanted to switch it on it didnt ON. and when i plugged in the charger its blinking orange light. I am in UAE currently and tried to repair in soo many places and couldnt repair....i tried to contact whatever possible customer care representatives through website and e-mail...nobody cares... HTC BRANDS ARE WASTE OF MONEY.....
