You issue 2.3.3 not over the air for desire
Google issue 2.3.6 over the air update for nexus one which you made

Why won't you give us 2.3.6 over the air?

It's October now and we all know that HTC lied about the gingerbread we would get.

They promised first it would be available May it took until August and then no over the air, they claimed not possible.

Well the nexus one made by HTC got an over the air and a better version HTC could only make 2.3.3 well nexus got 2.3.6.

The problem as always been HTC's greed they wanted us to bye the poor replacement the DESIRE s well its a cheap and nasty looking phone and the hard buttons have gone and I only bought my desire a8181 sim free in March at a cost of £460 I notice I could buy the s for £380 sim free but I would never buy that rubbish its build is rubbish HTC is doing a Nokia thinking they can put their name on a donkey and ppl will buy but ppl are not obtuse like they think. I predict if they continue with their arrogance this time next year they will be in trouble financialy and it will serve them right.

I will never buy another HTC phone because of their greed and lies.
