this phone really sucks.
i 've bought it an year ago. i uset it for a total of 2 hours (more or less)
it continuosly shut down the screen
i can only press some button, after some browsing in the menu the screen stops working.
the phone is still on, but i cant use it because of this issue.
absolutly: dont buy this phone! if you receive it as a gift, give it back!
I had this phone , had no problems with it but then i dropped it not too far off the ground even and then it was just done , never worked again, but great phone

Came across a guy selling some of these, very cheap ofcors, i thought it would be fun to try one. Windows is supposed to hang and malfunction, i would expect no less ehehe. A true landmark in mobile OS failures, "Defective by Design", i think i want one!
try using mobile antivirus and regular software updates as this is a mini computer and the OS is Windows .
i loved this phone the 1st time i got hold of it but as time goes on i started regreting choosing it. Sometimes it freezes and you can't even access the contacts.

I am an interested buyer from Africa(kenya),i work for a shop outlet,the phone seems really nice but due to the lack of care centres or HTC spare parts am having second thoughts,since no one else has bought this phone from our stock since last year.Is there any way one can get warantee from so far away?

i started to own this phone as contract from march 2009 but since october 2009 it never had any damages but my problem with the phone is that it goes dark on the screen at anytime then it comes back , it switches itself off then after a while,it become on again,it also vibrate for a long time when it does all those things.i took it for repairs at vodacare three times but every time it comes back it works well for only three to four hours then it start again.the worse problem is that it can just say the sim card is missing while the sim card is inside.thats when i had to reset it till it takes the sim card.this is trouble for me because i cannot fix it myself please help
I have been using this phone for the last 16 months.
Overall a good phone. The big highlights are the wi-fi system, a very good resolution cmos sensor camera(no flash), ease of installing java applications and games, capability to open virtually all office application files and its scratch resistant body. Battery is also above average so far, got problem with its display once and got it replaced free from HTC Service Centre.
I Just Love it. If buying it, take care that you have an htc care nearby and keep well the frontside body as its not scratch resistant, not easily available and also very costly. ask more at firstname.lastname@example.org
ive been using this phone for about 8 months and my batery is faulty and the screen just goes black my internet does not work so i would not recomend the htc s710 and my friend has an htctouch dimond and has the same problem
Do not buy this phone unless you have the cash to purchase a new battery after 8 months! Rather invest in a more expensive htc. The battery dies when sending text messages, even if it is fully charged. This is a major inconvenience. So just a warning.
sagar, 08 Dec 2009check out for the batter's life.... it gets dull after 8 months...!!! Hi,
I am using this phone since Nov 2008 and till now not faced any battery issues or any faults on the phone. Even I am a rough user however the phone is working absolutely fine. I would definately recommend this phone to everyone because its genuinely good.

Same Condition As U Describe Urs.... Just Bear In Mind The Phone Does Not Have 3G, And Has A Relativly Slow Processor, And Was Launched More Than 2yrs Ago.... You Can Buy A Much Newer Phone For The Price He Is Asking You....
