HTC Desire :: Phone Locked Onto Roaming Network / How To Fix It

Sep 19, 2010

I've had an unlocked HTC Desire on Three for a couple of months and it's all up-to-date - running on Froyo and updated again just this morning. Yesterday the phone dropped off Three and roamed onto Orange which isn't right because I get a full signal on Three in my house.

I phoned Three last night and they said there wasn't a problem with the network in my area. The woman I spoke to suggested taking the sim card and battery out, leaving it 5 minutes and then trying it. I did this this morning and it made no difference. I also set the phone into 3G only and manually scanned for networks and it couldn't find any.

I phoned again this morning and was told there is a known bug with the HTC Desire locking onto partner networks. I've been told to get the phone flashed but that sounds like a bit of a fob-off to me, especially when I can't find any reference to this problem on the internet.

HTC Desire :: No Network When Roaming

Oct 27, 2010

I have a Telus Desire which I have debranded (running Froyo) and unlocked. I have a Rogers sim card. I have been in Tokyo twice now and I am unable to find a network here. Even when I search for one I am unable to find it. Is my problem because of the rom I have used? I know there are Desires sold in Japan and they work but I am at a loss.

General :: Soft Unlock GSM Network Locked Droid

Aug 31, 2012

I'm switching to use gsm phones and not cdma lke my currently company.So my friend has a droid( can't remember which one) and every time they tried putting in a sim card it would ask for some code, which I beleive would be the network unlock code.Now instead of doing the traditional method and buying an unlock code from the internet, would I be able to unlock the phone by maybe installing CWM and flashing a different ROM?

I am thinking about getting a Desire on Vodafone uk. I live in Northern Ireland near the Irish border and have to turn off roaming on my current phone because when driving around the area it can alternate between Vodafone uk and Vodafone ie.

HTC Desire HD :: Receiving SMS Overseas / Data Roaming Off

Nov 16, 2010

I hope someone can help me with this, since searching has not yielded any help. I am overseas with my DHD and continue to receive SMS messages even though I turned data roaming off. I know I am being charged for this and now I am too afraid of turning the phone back on. I just want to use it for wireless and downloading some new apps, without phone calls or messaging.

HTC Desire :: Exchange Push Mail When Roaming

Jul 19, 2010

I am currently roaming outside my home network in the UK and cannot get Exchange Server to automatically synch. I have read countless posts on this forum and elsewhere trying to self-help before posting, but despite this one appearing to be the same issue, I have been unable to fix it.

In essence when opening Menu > Settings > Accounts & Synch > Manage Accounts / Exchange Active Sync > Account Settings I see that the option for "Sync when roaming" is not only unticked but also greyed out so I cannot enable it.

How can I fix this, please?

Note that Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Data roaming is ticked and so is ... > Enable always-on mobile data.

I am currently on an Edge network and manual Exchange Synch works just fine but having automatic sync is more important right now that worrying about the roaming charge.

HTC Desire :: Google Navigation And Data Usage While Roaming?

Jun 10, 2010

I am taking a holiday to South West France (Nantes Area) in July and hope to use Google Navigation but I am a bit concerned about data usage. I am on t-mobile 3gb limit but that won't apply as soon as I go out of UK coverage,bearing in mind $5.00 per a MB I could use a a lot of MBs to make a 200 mile journey. What my main concerns are,

1. Although I can set up Google to navigate to where I am going at home, will it cache the route but if I exit Google Nav is the route deleted.
2. Would it be best to buy a euro data bundle from t-mobile,I don't intend using the phone for anything else,apart from perhaps an odd call or text.
3. Try another Navigation app,have tried Andnav2 but can't seem to extract the maps onto my phone and have tried it where I live and it wanted to send me a longer route down country lanes rather than the direct route.
4. Buy a French PAYG SIM card with some data allowance,could be difficult as my French is not that fluent!
5. Buy a Navigation app such as Destinator 9,don't really want to pay for something like that. Perhaps I could get away with the trial period.
6. Scrap the whole idea and use some thing like mapdroid,or just buy a road map.

I just want to get to my destination without paying a fortune or running up a huge bill without knowing it.

HTC Desire : Text Whilst Roaming To T-Mobile From Orange

HTC Desire : Getting A Local Sim - Just Paying Crazy Roaming Charges?

Aug 17, 2010

Slightly off topic, but for Desire and you lot seem to know your stuff. I'm travelling in the states for a month. Is it worth getting a local sim or just paying the crazy roaming charges. If local sim, what's the best way to get one?

I only really need the internet side of things. Will occasionally check voicemail and the odd text, but those costs will be small. Cycling Vancouver to San Fran so having unlimited access for those 2 weeks would be a massive help. Any ideas? I'm on O2 with an unbranded Desire.

HTC Desire :: Speficy Network Settings Per Wi-Fi Network?

Nov 4, 2010

I alternate between two wifi networks on my HTC Desire running Android 2.2 ( I think!)On one network I need to specify the network IP/subnet/Gateway and so on, on the other network I can use DHCP.Is there any way to tell Android that whenever I connect to one wifi network it should use the static IP and on the other it should get an IP automatically?I am forever going into advanced wifi settings and changing them back and forth. I'd love for my phone to remember the settings used on each wifi profile.

HTC Desire :: Seems Half Locked

Jul 17, 2010

I have just purchased a telstra branded HTC desire [outright] 2 days ago from JB HIFI, the salesman said its unlocked and i assumed its all good.

I can definately send/recieve calls and sms, BUT i cannot connect to the net for browsing unless im at home in my wifi area... i dont get it.. its like the device is a half locked phone, calls/sms -ok, internet-no only to telstra >>

I have a vodafone [prepaid sim] and i was able to browse and recieve emails and so on with my nokia e63 on prepaid with no issue whatsoever. This is my first android phone and im feeling a little lost/stumped with it and taken advantage of with half truths from the salesman at JB HIFI. Im sure they would know about this, i did make it clear and stress out it is a non telstra sim and that its prepaid.

Whenever I lock the phone it has recently starting turning itself off. It also did this when I answered a call yesterday then took it away from my ear and it was off.

HTC Desire HD :: Mobile Network Widget - Switching Off/on Mobile Network Setting From Home Screen

I have been trying to find a way of quickly switching off/on the Mobile Network setting from the home screen. When searching Google there's loads of pages stating that it is an HTC Widget that can be added. I have checked all the widgets on the Desire HD and cannot seem to find it anywhere. I am using an unbranded handset.

The Desire HD manual even states "You can also add widgets that allow you to quickly switch on or off certain settings of your phone, such as Wi-Fi, Mobile Network...".

Does anyone else with an HD handset have this widget ?

HTC Desire :: Get MMS Message From 5556 - Visible In Locked Screen Widget?

Oct 5, 2010

I have a Android with Lee Droid Froyo. Also is the standard messaging app along with Handcent SMS app. The first issue is that after I receive messages for a period of time (week or so) messages start coming in as MMS messages instead of SMS from a 5556 number, not the person who sent the SMS. I check the details and it states the incoming message is "SMS Message", however both stock message and handcent app handle and label as a MMS message from user 5556 but the message in the MMS is blank. When the messages arrive they are visible in the locked screen messages widget then disappear after entering the program to view them. I had the "delete old messages" unchecked and had a SMS message limit of 200. I have since checked the "delete old messages" and increased to 300 the SMS message limit but still have the same issue.

HTC Desire :: Using Telus HTC Desire On Rogers Network - No SIM Card In Phone - Error

Oct 8, 2010

I just got an HTC Desire that was locked to Telus (Canadian Carrier). I have read that numerous people are using it on Rogers network. From the day I got it when I put my rogers sim card in (the right way) it said "No SIM card in phone" so I could not enter an unlock code. Thinking the SIM was defective went to Telus and tried one of their sim cards and it worked fine, then I went to Rogers thinking it was a problematic card. We tried 4 cards and none of them worked. I then went to Bell (another canadian carrier) and tried their sim card. It worked as well but said that the phone was locked. I purchased an unlock code from the internet which worked. Now the Bell sim card works as well becuase the phone is unlocked. I put my Rogers SIM back into it and it still sais "No SIM card in phone". I also tried a SIM from a european company and it did not work as well. This HTC Desire works on the same 3G 850/1900 GSM that Rogers uses.

HTC Desire HD :: Which Network Gets Used?

Oct 21, 2010

Have been used to Nokias in the past, both personally and for work, so the DHD is my first non-Nokia phone for ages. With the E71 I had, whenever I wanted to go on-line it asked me which access point I wanted to use. This meant that if I was out and about I'd use the 3G network but if I was at home I'd choose wifi. With the DHD it doesn't ask and appears to me to want you to choose which network to use purely by 'default'. That is, if it's switched on then it'll use it.Have I missed something in the manual? Maybe I've misunderstood how the networking is prioritized?

HTC Desire :: Charged For Using Wi-Fi On 3G Network?

Sep 1, 2010

I have a HTC Desire on Orange contract, I have had no problems with it or any billing problems until now!!!

Went on holiday but before I went I took a travel bundle of 10 MB, I know I would probably use more than this but only by a a few MB whislt out of wi fi zones... got back to UK and checked my bill and �537.00 is the data charge.. considering 95% of my web and email activity was via a wi fi network I am rather shocked.

I have heard that the HTC Desire still uses the 3g or data network even if you are in a wi fi zone, can anyone confirm this as I am having a bust up with Orange as it does not state anywhere that the data connection is still running when you are in a wi fi zone... bit pointless having wi fi or doing stuff in a wi fi zone if you are still being charged data.. why would you have wi fi on if you were going to be charged.

I uploaded youtube clips, facebook, listened to the radio all through what I thought was my FREE wi fi network... every other phone I have ever had automatically cut the data connection when you were in a wi fi zone... it seems that the desire does not do this....

HTC Desire :: Mobile Network Vs Wi-Fi Internet

May 13, 2010

I' ve been using a lot my Desire these days and absolutely love it.I surf the Internet a lot and just wanted to make sure if I get it all right:

1. If I only use the Mobile Network Internet on my phone that means I am using the Internet my provider (Orange in this case) gives me per month. I have 1GB limited Interned each month and therefore surfing the web through the Mobile Network option means I am draining from that 1GB limit.

2. If I only use the Wi-Fi Internet (when Mobile Network is OFF) on the phone that means I connect to (in this case) my home Internet router and use it to access Internet and therefore do not drain any of the 1GB limit I have per month.

Is that right? I use Internet a lot and don't want to end up paying huge bills to Orange.And last question- what happens if both options (Mobile Network and Wi-Fi) are turned ON? What Internet will I be using- Orange's or the one from my home Internet router?

At that time when I tried another sim card, the network was working fine. Then after a while my phone starts showing network with the original sim. But it won't connect to the internet. It simply won't connect, although I am toggling the mobile data connection tick mark.

Right now the network has gone again, and I'm trying to get connected to it through either Automatic registration or manually selecting from the list of network providers. But I get the message "unable to connect to this network at this time"...

HTC Desire :: Launcher Pro And Network Connection

To android 4 months ago and running an Unrooted Desire Android 2.2 on O2 (OTA update to froyo went no problem) No Taskiller

Must say I'm loving android, for the sheer ability to customise it, altough not brave enough to root yet!
Installed folder organiser and launcher pro plus cos I want to change icons and names of folders etc.

My problem is when I switch from sense to laucher pro, i lose my data connection widget/ shortcut and cant get it back. On my sense screen I have the power control widget, which gives me the wifi connection toggle and also a mobile web toggle. I want a mobile web toggle that works with launcher pro.

Downloaded the widgets pack from curvefish, but the APN on/off does nothing at all.
