That kind of thing has happened in the past. Mine is from Three, but unusually hasn't been Three branded. I would imagine they were rushing to 'range' a popular phone, so mine is unlocked and not Three branded. I imagine future Desire's from Three will be branded up and locked. It makes me more inclined to go via HTC for a fix rather than Three who might just replace with a locked model (I occasionally do stuff in the USA so being able to use a local SIM is nice).goo_mason said:I have heard that the software that Orange puts on the phones can affect things, so maybe other networks do the same and that's the issue?
One of the blogs I frequently read mentioned this and concluded that there is some kind of cost involved and had gone back to tethering his phone to his laptop with a cable. Unfortunately I read 10+ different mobile phone blogs and can't remember which one I read it in!!Being able to use the Desire as a wifi hotspot is extremely convenient, and for me the HD video thing is a good laugh but not essential. I haven't tried the iTunes synching yet but I can see it would be useful.
I think it's mainly supposed to be a lot more stable. Oh, and Flash 10.1 is a lot better.<br>
hmm interesting.. that would increase life, implies your telling it to default to the slower gsm network, not the wcdma....There is a hack that works on the HTC Hero, may work on the Desire to prolong battery life. Go into phone:
1. Dial *#*#4636#*#* , don't press call. It should take you into the system menu
2. Go to Phone information
3. scroll down until you get to WCDMA Auto (or something similar)
4. Choose GSM PRL Auto from the list.
5. Back out using the back key
As stated, this works for the Hero so I take absolutely no responsibility for damage. it may not even show you the menu on the Desire but it could be worth a try. I went from 12 hours to 24 on my Hero.
