I have HTC Raider 4G also and i agree with your thoughts on it. I have only one right now that it does not allow to compose SMS more than 80 characters. After 80 it automatically converts into MMS. Kindly guide me how to make it normalize to write SMS as long as possible like other sets.
You can email the solution on email@example.com.
Thank you very much.
I had the choice between this or an iPhone so wanting to be different I chose the raider. Big mistake. I loved it at first. It was fast, had a lot of free apps but now it freezes, randomly restarts itself (sometimes 5 or 6 times in a matter of a few minutes) and now the battery goes from full to empty in a matter of minutes-it'll freeze then I restart it and then the battery is red and it dies, even after its been charged. Next time, I'm getting the iPhone.
Upgraded from the HTC Desire C after finding HTC as the phone for me. Absolutely LOVE this phone. Very fast and more features than I would ever use. Why pay the big $$$ for the competition. HTC makes one awesome phone that cannot be beat in my eyes.
i buy htc raider4g...but this phone cant video call and...skype video call...in use 3g or 4g
When I was looking for a cellphone i was going to buy teh Samsung Galaxy S3 at the time. but the salesman convinced me that this one was better because it had a better LTE coverage. And boy have i regretted that decision for the following reasons:
1) I had to pay $50 bucks. Galaxy was free.
2) its buggy, It crashes all the time. A lof of times by itself. (i would just hear the phone rebooting from my pocket)
3) Wi-Fi is buggy. I have to restarte the application/phone sometimes just to continue browising the internet. and of course while i do that the Data-network kicks in downloading whatever it is i was trying to view. effectively defeating the purpose of usign wi-fi.
3) its typing is slow and cluncky. im no fan of the iphone but its not user friendly at all. sometimes if you click outside of the keyboard area it will kick you out of it and browse to the first message you have saved of whoever your writing to. leaving you with 1 of 2 choices. A) exit and go back to it as a draft, or B) scroll down your saved messages, all the way to the message you are writing. hopefully you set it up for ie: 50 messages because otherwise you will be scrolling through hundreds and hundreds of all messages... you get my point.
4) deleting apps is haard as f$%^. you have to go into applications then go to delete applications then you have to look for the application. sometimes this wont delete your application. confused? you can imagine my frustration.
5) cannot delete apps that come with the phone, ie: twitter. you have to hardwire it to the computer and delete from there. do you have time for that? neither do i.
6) battery doesnt last (very big and bright screen - could be a plus)
all in all annoying to navigate and operate. VERY buggy. save your money and go get yourself a Samsung Galaxy.
I have the raider, love it, recently I send a txt and receive, I get the same sound for send & receive, although settings are different, popped the battery, changed the sounds, etc, still won't correct this issue, so now I don't know when I'm receiving a txt because its the same sound for send & receive, any help would be great...I am with rogers, they suggested I do factory reset to solve this, I do not wish to reset, any help to further correct my issue would be great... firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm Loving my HTC Raider 4G which i got from Korea! It has 1.5Ghz processor not 1.2Ghz and I've been using it since June as a replacement of my HTC Desire HD(still using it though) hahaha! I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that HTC would update it to Jelly Rockin' Bean!! >.< -Bacolod- Philippines! >.

My sons raider keeps rebooting...unusable. The geeks at Best Buy tried for an hour or more to make it work...any idea what went wrong and yes my son has a new phone and thanks to my wife for buying the extended warranty
You People Are A Circus. This is simply a good phone, once ICS came out, solved a lot of glitches, if you're experience was bad with this phone, you either got a defect or you don't know how to handle and operate a mobile device, and should go to your nearest hardware store and buy a helmet!

Theres no 4G in the country i am located. Thanks for your reply. Do u know if the same settings are available on Vivid?
In txt msgs i only have a capacity of 80 characters after that it converts the txt to MMS ? How to solve the issue ??? thanx !
I loved my HTC Raider, but it went through a system update and is no longer like the older version, and I hate it.. It crashes, it's slow and i have to him an app several times before it actually decides to bring me there, and now the batterie life SUCKS! like what is happening!
Hoption, 08 Sep 2012Hello Sary,+ everyone, Can the 4G LTE be turned off to save battery energy in HTC Raider or HT... moreThere are options. Whether they can be used is another question.
On my Raider, with Bell in Canada when I go Settings > Mobile Network > Network mode I get the following options:
GSM / WCDMA Auto
GSM / WCDMA / LTE Auto (my selection)
I believe if you only have a 3G/HSPA+ based service LTE will obviously not be enabled. Bell supply special LTE sim cards for their service (not sure if this is standard on all networks) but i know if I travel outside LTE coverage it kicks down to 3G/HSPA+ so I'm assuming I could choose to go off the LTE auto setting and have it always run in 3G.
