I'm currently a Nokia N8 user but I almost ended up getting a HTC Desire. I'm glad I didn't now as my friend who has one tells me that when he is connected to his WiFi network he can't send a MMS.
Also I found this on the Virgin Mobile Forums.
" HTC Desire
95% of our customers should now be on the 2.2 update, we're working with HTC on upgrade path for the rest currently.
We've also recieved reports of the following issues from HTC Desire users on 2.2:
Email randomly deleting
Email service has stopped working
Phones rebooting randomly
Phone screen stops responding
However we've found that a simple factory reset will cure these problems 90% of the time. Please remember to back up all your data before a factory reset as this will restore the phone to when you first recieved it deleting any downloaded applications, text, photos etc "
What a sad state of affairs when a firmware update causes more problems than it solves.
I've also noticed a fair amount of lag on my friends Desire so it's not the mighty phone most people make it out to be.
I'd welcome any feedback on the above comments as long as it's not flame-baiting and is sensible.
what is wrong with this company?(HTC) their phones are awesome but im scared if I purchase another one it wont last like iphone does... i have HTC touch hd before, I bought it too expensive but it got problem i used it like 2 months,sold it for 1/4 of the price I paid... i want this mobile because its handy perfect size nice screen nice o.s but just worried about the life span of this after reading ur comments

andr0id, 23 Dec 2010who is the better device htc apple iphone 4 or htc desire?please answer me.thanks...For me HTC is much better. iPhone is more fashion accessory and because of high investments in the image of the product is so much popular. If you compare the technical, HTC is much better. I have a friend with the iPhone 8, before that had HTC Desire, he is very sorry that he changed it.
who is the better device htc apple iphone 4 or htc desire?please answer me.thanks...
Everything works good ,fantastic apps,very fine multitasking, but the major problem which can't be ignored at any cost is phone starts reboot itself and will go on for unlimited time until u take out the battery and wait at least 20-30 minutes before you can restart the phone and will do this again as soon as u go on the internet, gps, camera or any other music app or even exploring market..... does anyone else have this problem and how to fix it...I sent it out for repair with telus but after 2 attempts of resolving the problem is still there...
