HTC Desire :: No 3G - No Data?

Jul 22, 2010

New Desire user here. Pretty impressed with the phone and apps so far. I've been messing mostly when connected to WiFi and have just taken the phone into work today. Guess what? No WiFI and no 3G coverage. I'm not getting any data services. The phone is in 2G/3G mode and getting no sync on mail,calendar and no access to the internet.

When I switch to 2G fixed then I pick up GPRS or Edge and I get a trickle of data down.

Do I have to manual put the phone into 2G to get data when there is no 3G coverage? In 3G mode I thought it would auto-magically negotiated down and still maintain the best data transfer it could manage. This seems a bit strange to me. Is this the way it works?

HTC Desire :: Track / Stop Data Usage - Ways To Conserve Data?

Aug 23, 2010

I just signed up for these forums because soon I will be an HTC Desire owner in Canada. Having never owned a smartphone before I do have a few questions. The plan I intend on signing up for is the Telus Student 40 and that will come with only 100mb of data. Now I don't see myself being too data using heavy so I feel like I will be able to live with it. However I do have some questions regarding my data consumption.

1. Is it possible to completely stop all data usage by somehow disabling the data connection if I find myself reaching my limit?
2. What are ways to track my data usage to make sure I don't use too much data?
3. What are good ways to conserve data usage? I'm getting the feeling that there are some applications that will constantly be sending data back and forth updating themselves, is it possible to have these applications but stop them from constantly updating and only have them update when I want to access the application?.........

HTC Desire :: Does Auto Sync And Background Data Needs Always On Mobile Data?

Aug 18, 2010

If "always on mobile data" is disabled, will this have any affect on programs that are set to auto sync with back ground data enabled(Face book, twitter etc)? I'm trying to work it out but lots of people say different things?

HTC Desire :: Lost - Stolen Desire - Protect Data - Send Sms To Preallocated Number If Phone Is Booted Up With Different Sim

Jul 18, 2010

My friend just lost his Desire at an airport. The pattern lock is active, but that does nothing but protect the data on the phone - Not SD. The first thing they would do is to switch the phone off and replace the sim.

Now here is my question : Is there an app that will send an sms to a preallocated number if the phone is booted up with a different sim? I know some Samsung phones can do this. But having an app that requires your own sim to be able to find it if stolen is quite pointless.

HTC Desire :: HTC Desire Constant Data Use

May 21, 2010

I've downloaded 2 different apps, 3g watchdog & netcounter which both show the amount of 3g data usage for the phone. Just yesterday, I managed to apparently use nearly 20mb of 3g data, although I was barely on the web. I must've checked my facebook a couple of times, read a few emails, and that was it. I've also installed a task manager app which closes all running apps, which I always use before locking the screen and putting the phone in my pocket. So as far as I know, there shouldn't be any apps running or using any data at all. It may be that push email may be using a bit, but surely not 20mb in one day?? It's also only one email account and the full html version of the email is never shown. I'm with Vodafone, and their supposedly "Unlimited" internet is capped at 500mb, which means at the rate that my phone is apparently going now, I would have maxed that out in a month hardly using the internet at all! I doubt that the data counter apps are wrong as they are both showing the same usage. They've both had really good reviews by other users as well. However, I find it extremely hard to believe that I used 20mb in one day when I only looked at possibly 3 web pages. The counters actually show that I used over 1mb after 30 mins, even when I wasn't running any apps.

HTC Desire :: Using A Lot Of Data?

Sep 10, 2010

I've had my Desire a week & I love it

However I seem to be using an awful lot more MB on my internet plan than I did when I had my Blackberry.

When I had my BB I used approx 150MB in a month. Since last Sat I've used over 200MB!

Fair enough I've been messing about with it but still seems a lot.

I use K9 email program which is set to "poll" ac's every 15 mins, Twitter updates every 30 mins & the Gmail sync every hour. Nothing else really is set to sync.

I have 500MB usage on Orange & unlimited push email but would I be right in saying the K9 "poll" will not be using the unlimited push email allowance & would use some of my 500MB every time?

HTC Desire :: Clearing App Data

Sep 7, 2010

I kept getting a low on space warning so I decided to go into the 'Managing Applications' menu and found some apps had a large 'Data' reading.The Twitter app in particular was using just under 10mb.I decided to click the 'Clear Data' button and it warned me that this would clear all my account settings etc but I thought I'd give it a try.Anyway, it brought the data level right down to virtually nothing and my Twitter app didn't lose any of my account settings. I didn't even need to sign in again and everything works like it did before and I now have some free space.I did the same with the Facebook app. The data has come right down, I was required to sign in again with this though.I had about 13mb of space left before, now I have 45mb.

HTC Desire :: No Data Signal ?

Aug 4, 2010

My Desire has started acting strangely today. Wifi works OK, phone signal works OK, what doesn't seem to work all of a sudden is the data signal. Any data signal, 3G, HDSPA or even GPRS - there is no icon in the notification bar and no access to the mobile internet.

I've tried:
* rebooting my phone
* turning APN and on again with and without Wifi
* checking my APN settings (OK)
* reinstalling the newest radio (one that ends in 20 - was working fine up to now)
* reinstalling my version of 2.2 (Defrost 2.5a)
* checking my carrier's site to see if there are any probs (Virgin Mobile)
* Oh and I've travelled about 50 miles today on my commute from outside London to central London with no signal at any time so I assume it isn't a local antenna problem.

All to no avail. II first noticed it at 0700 this morning - so it has now been like this for nearly 12 hours. The icon and connection remains stubbornly off. If I wasn't getting wifi or signal I would be really worried, but the fact that I can fills me with hope that it is either a setting or user error.

HTC Desire :: Simultaneous Call And Data

Apr 1, 2010

Just started using my Desire last night! Feeling good.


Was just on a call, tried to use the Android Marketplace. Couldn't. Got curious, and tried to use Google Maps mid call. Couldn't. Tried to use the internet during the call. Couldn't. Now, I'm on T-Mobile (UK) and have just come from a Nokia E71. With my E71 I could make a call and use Google Maps. Am I missing something or is this bit of multitasking somehow not possible?

HTC Desire HD :: Transfer Data From Iphone 3g To DHD?

Oct 30, 2010

I cannot get my Iphone 3G and DHD to sync my contacts using the "Transfer Data" function. I follow the on screen instructions on the DHD. Set the Iphone to 'discoverable' but cant get any further. Usually the Iphone doesn't even appear on the DHD Bluetooth devices list and on the odd occassion that it does, as soon as i go to connect it drops out and says i should restart both phones. I have done this numerous times to no avail. Has anyone managed to do this same transfer? And if so can they provide a little assistance?

HTC Desire :: 3 MMbile Data Allowance

Jun 2, 2010

My first thread, second post here... sort of. This is a great forum, been reading it all week, it's been very helpful making decisions.I originally posted this in someone else's thread as I thought it was on the same topic, but I guess now I look at it more closely it would require quite a derail to answer my questions. I hope it isn't wrong to quote myself like this, I don't want to spam. I've edited it slightly to fit better here: I should be getting my desire from three today (got a text earlier, it's late arriving), I was considering switching to t-mobile with their nice 3gb allowance on android phones but when i phoned up 3 they gave me a pretty good deal, and the 3 signal where i'm moving to later this year has been better than t-mobile. So far so good.However, I was under the impression that 3 had a 1GB fair use policy, which seemed it would be enough for me (I'm mainly worried about google navigation, I'm going to be a bit lost for a while after we move, I don't know the new area). I thought I'd better check, and now some sites I've found seem to suggest it has been reduced to 500mb per month since May 1st, though i can't find any official word anywhere.

Does anybody know the full story? It seems a bit of a stupid thing to reduce the browsing limit at the same time as changing all your plans to 'Internet Talker' and 'Internet Texter'. If the limit is 500mb, does anyone know how strict that limit is, ie do they only get annoyed if you go a large amount over the cap, or do you get charged immediately? Just to add, I did speak to someone in a 3 store about 5 days ago when I was checking out the handset in person, and he assured me that it was 1GB, though I then did the deal over the phone with the upgrades people. Does anyone think they might increase the limit to 1GB (if it is now 500mb) for me if i ring and cite this conversation? I was thinking that I might still have some negotiating leverage during the 7 days distance selling 'cooling off period' to get things changed.
