I just left Sprint for Cricket and my new desire is working flawlessly. Boost runs off the Sprint towers and while I was with Sprint I couldn't do anything with my old phone. My neighbor just left Cricket for Boost and she's having the same problems you are.
This phone sucks can't DL any apps bc the updates take up all 4gb of phone space and I have a 4gb SIM card in it I can't use bc there is no room on the phone. Every time I deleted updates and stuff I don't use even with data and WiFi updates turned off it still updates what it wants when it wants, the biggest waste of money ever, don't water your money
Idk, sounds like the majority of everyone's comments are a complete disapproval of the HTC DESIRE 510! Which f***** blows Because I just bought the same phone a few days ago, an I ended up on this site because I thought to myself that it couldn't be that the camera or phone itself doesw not have a flash light on it, like wtf. Other wise then that I like the phone. I've Haven't had any problems yet an hopefully it stays that way cuz I've always liked HTC phones. Thanks
Just got this phone & I CAN'T BELIEVE it does NOT have a FLASH for the camera...shouldn't that be standard for phones these days. Unfortunately the store I bought it from has a no return policy otherwise I would return it for that matter Alone!
Nice phone for the price, but highly disappointed about this CAMERA! #NOFLASH #really ??

Google and Boost mobile pop up randomly, making a call is nearly impossible, my call log is a long list of tries. And sound quality? IF I get through, sucks. Boost has been no help and HTC says my unit is "fine"
What I cannot figure out is why so many people think it's fabulous.

I love this phone and has lots of cool features but I have had it less than 1 month and the touch screen is completely useless! It will not register or let me text and if I try to go onto the home screen it takes me to google but it was good whilst it lasted defo buying a Samsung next time
biggest regret buying this subpar phone,was a fan of htc until this product.on top of the Low screen resolution,no flash and plastic shell other issues appearedat first I had the issue of pocket dials,opening apps I don't use,random letters in search,then multiple redailings.now my touchscreen fails to register or registers a press nowhere near my finger,cant answer calls,trying to text becomes so frustrating its 4 months old and it hasnt been wet or misused ,useless
It's a smartphone. It's android. The interface suits pastel icons and themes. Seamless integration of social media etc. Very good. But it's just an android smartphone among many faceless android smartphones. What shines is the battery life and the pretty good texting on either qwerty or T9 keyboards: unobtrusive and not heavy on the suggestive. But battery life has to be the best I've ever known on a device like this.
It's a good phone. I bought it because my iPhone 5 crapped out. This is the best android I've ever owned. And I've owned a lot. My Samsung galaxy s4 was fried after a month of use. HTC desire 510 is a good phone if you're using it as a phone not a computer. No it's not high end but as long as you use it for its purpose then it's okay. Loving the phone can't complain.
Best Buy convinced me to buy this crap HTC Desire 510 when I wanted another LG, which are GR8 phones. HTC Desire is a substandard phone. No flash, camera quality so bad it won't even scan a b&w barcode. No LED notification light so you have to constantly turn on to see if missed calls, texts, or emails. HTC collects money from app makers to add advertising garbage. Apps I had on LG, when loaded on HTC Desire, now have ads everywhere and they don't on LG even when updated. The phone is listed as 4g and my LG sitting next to it gets a 4g signal and the HTC is 3g. No lock screen, just home/lock combo. No size/picture icon customization but touts it is android. The screen resolution is lower than LG and colors more washed out. Numerous other substandard characteristics. It is more expensive than LG and I SO regret not getting another LG. Wish my Best Buy bad car stereo installation had not blown out my LG which I loved. I cannot recommend HTC and can tell you KG is the way to go, definitely.
srar, 09 Apr 2015can i have this phone unlocked to work with other networks other than sprint?Google for phone unlock. I forget the website. When I bought my HTC 510 I was able to unlock it for paying $19 aus and getting unlock code and instructions.
Why the hell would there not be a flash on the camera??? Like really I don't understand........ Very disappointed
