The only reason many people brick their Desire Z is when they use the Visionary method... on XDA wiki it has the new way to root the phone.. there's still a chance of rooting but not as high risk as the visionary way.
Hi, after researching and looking at all the phones out there, I would like to get a Desire Z. However, the only thing holding me back is that it seems very hard to get hold of in the uk. Is it end of life, or will it be coming back with the new software update. If it's about to be imminently replaced by HTC, what are they going to replace it with . . . I'm sure I'll find a source tp buy from; but if HTC are withdrawing it I'm concerned why?

nil, 09 Aug 2011does it support adobe flash?Yes mate it goes support flash
yes it does support flash, and about music quality...its not suitable as a music phone but its not made for music so its obvious but I would say the sound quality is really good I owned Nokia 5730,5800,5630,5320,5220 and thou I agree I would prefer any of the above phone for music but the quality ain't worse on HTC but the volume is lil low, I personally use skullcandy titan headphones so I don't find the loudness a problem so just get yourself a good quality headphone, regarding the screen sensitivity ..well I use the phone for few months now and I've faced no such problem, clean your screen and check for any improvement...better check the internet how capacitive touch works and you would know it shouldn't deteriorate with time, just try clean your dirty screen and about the battery..yes its true the battery sucks but it improves with gingerbread upgrade but I still have to charge the battery every day, anyway anyone with a decent budget like 500usd shouldn't buy this phone, there are better options like the nexus S
does it support adobe flash?

I got HTC Desire Z two weeks back. I am quite satisfied with its performance. But it is not suitable as a music phone. I found its speaker sound average while playing music. Sound quality is OK but its volume is not high enough. I used headphones but even than sound volume is not too high.

I'm music addicted. I'd like to get an idea about Desire Z's music quality. Currently I own a SE W700i & a Samsung F480i. I must say SE Walkman has an edge over Samsung in music quality, player function etc. How about Desire Z?

I sort that out by killing all the apps I don't need through the task manager every now and then. It'll still happen when you use a memory-intensive app, though.
i would like to know if DZ has the following functionalities:
1. exchange sync of email, calendar and contacts.
2. when you download exchange email, is it in html format?
3. can DZ record 2 way voice call? (not via speakerphone)

The Desire Z switches the home screen to landscape when the keyboard is out. If I go to a messaging app, open my keyboard and type a message and then go back to my home screen while the keyboard is still out, it takes several seconds to load the home screen in landscape. If I send my message, close the keyboard and then go to my home screen, there is no delay.
Other phones do not seem to have a landscape home screen. At least with the Desire Z, I haven't been able to swith my home screen to landscape without opening the keyboard. Other phones do not have a keyboard, so I suspect they do not have a landscape home screen.
