HTC Desire :: Phone Won't Start

Nov 5, 2010

I hope this is the right place to post this.I am using an HTC Desire running Android 2.2 from the Telus OTA update.I wanted to see the OS without the Sense UI so I went through Settings/Applications/Manage Applications select 'All' selected HTC Sense and hit the 'Clear defaults' button, it did nothing when I went back to the home screen, so I went back and 'hit 'Force stop' the phone restarted but was still using the Sense UI so I shut it down and tried to restart it immediately after the screen went black.The phone then vibrated 4 times in a row and did nothing. After that the phone would not start. The only thing I could do was remove the battery for a few seconds put it back in then start the phone up. Now I find the phone has an issue where if I don't give it a few seconds after shutting down it will do the 4 vibrates and then do nothing.The 'Clear defaults' option in the Sense UI is now always blocked out so I can not select it.Has this happened to anyone else? Is the vibrating then becoming a paper weight an issue due to the Sense UI issue or is that normal because I may not be giving it enough time to shut down or something?

HTC Desire :: Cannot Get Past Start Up Screen

Jul 30, 2010

I had DJ Droid installed on my desire and I was trying to unroot it and put a stock 2.1 rom on so I could put Froyo OTA once it was released but I didn't get very far!I formatted my spare card sd card and wanted to make a new gold card as out of the two I used I wasn't sure which was the gold card.Whenever I turn on my phone it hangs on the HTC start up screen.I can hold power and volume down and get into HBOOT, go to recovery, volume up and get to Android system recovery <2e> Apply and it says No Such File even though I put it on but I may of wiped the partition during all this which has removed this file.When I try to mount the micro sd using an adapter and look at the files on it it says 'You need to format the disk in drive G:before you can use it.This happens for both cards. I try to format them but they both fail Anybody ideas apart from leave things how they are in future!

HTC Desire :: How Long For Battery To Start Performing?

Apr 20, 2010

I received my Desire on Saturday, I'm not very happy with the battery performance at all so far. All automatic updates are off and 3G/Wifi disabled. Yesterday I unplugged it at 0630 (at 100% battery), and despite very little use it was totally drained by 4pm. Today I haven't used it at all (as a test) and it looks like it's only going to be fractionally better. When I check the Battery stats for today 'Cell Standby' is at 74% and 'Phone idle' is at 18%. My question is, 3 days into ownership is this poor performance normal or do you think there's a problem with the battery?

HTC Desire :: Apps Automatically Start Running When Restarting Ph?

Oct 12, 2010

My desire was taking approx 40mins to power down so I installed an task killer to show me what was running in the back round. I was astounded approx 25 apps were continually running in the backround so by killing these apps powering down now only take 15secs max. However, ive become a bit obsessed with this task killer. i keep checking what is running and there are things on there that i have never used such as "you tube", "news" "talk" etc. Could someone please point me in the right direction about how i stop these apps from running without me requesting them too? I know a lot of say task killers are not essential but it has certainly shown me the reason why my desire was running so slowly. Also one more thing, after powering off my phone, when restarting, ALL the apps automatically start running then? Is there a startup menu that can be editted for example?

Have just got my HTC Desire. I switched the phone on for the first time and it's stuck on a screen with a green icon on. The icon is a down arrow with two arrows going around in a circle. What am I supposed to do here? I've pressed on the screen and held for a few seconds, pressed and held each of the buttons and no response. Not even the power button works.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Phone Won't Start Up All Way

Jul 30, 2010

I crashed it by messing around with one of the apps (I replaced an audio file then rebuilt and signed the app, and then the app crashed after it played the file), and the only way I could turn it off was to take out the battery.Now it won't start up again. It gets past the flashing Samsung animation, but then after that I just get a blank screen.The light behind the buttons stays on and I can't turn the phone off without taking out the battery.I've tried taking the SIM card out and pressing the volume down button, send button, then end button but the same thing happened.

My Samsung Galaxy S won't fully start up. I take the battery out and start it and it goes through the starting up phase with the spirals and what not and then the screen says Galaxy S then the phone either just shuts off by itself or the screen is black but the bottom two touch buttons are lit up. Ive tried to do the reset on it by holding the Up volume, home button and power button but that doesn't seem to work either.

Samsung Fascinate :: Phone Ringing On Start Up

Nov 21, 2010

When I power up my phone I get the standard start up and then the phone starts ringing very loudly. It's almost like the old phone ringing sound we remember from years ago. It rings 5 or 6 times and then stops. This is not my ring tone and it's louder than any other system sounds. This has been an issue for only the past week, I've had the phone for just over a month. The only other thing I've noticed is that my battery has drained more quickly than normal the past couple days. I thought it might be Lookout security but I deleted that app and it continues.

HTC EVO 4G :: Android Phone Messed Up - Start From Scratch?

Jul 17, 2010

So I got my first Android phone, this Evo 4G last week. It's really great and I love it but I have all kinds of crazy stuff going on, triple contacts, facebook contacts, my gmail account contacts, my business google apps contacts, just things seem kinda out of control since it's my first Android phone. So I'm thinking about just starting with a clean slate, now that I know a lot more about what the phone can do, which calendars to you, which sms program, other apps that are must-haves. Is this a good idea? Will it do anything to my SD card, which has all of my apps backed up?

HTC Incredible :: How Long Until Promotions Start For Phone?

Apr 27, 2010

The SMART30 code craziness today made me wonder, how soon will Verizon start running other promotions for the Incredible? How long did it take them to do BOGO or $99 offers for the DROID? I want to get my phone as cheap as possible, but as a 3rd line on a family plan Verizon doesn't tend to offer me deals. I noticed Wirefly had their price set at $149.99 to start sales Thursday. Will it be a long time before Verizon drops the price?
