HTC :: Noby Unlock / Flash For Desire - Orange

Jul 6, 2010

Can someone explain to me a few things please: If you unlock your phone with a code, does that mean you can put any sim into it? If so, does it re-lock onto the new network/sim that you put it? and if so, can you unlock it again with the same code or is it permanent?Secondly, I understand that if you debrand an Orange Desire, you can install a generic ROM, but if you do an OTA update, the phone screws up (loses wi-fi) as you have updated the radio version which is incompatible with Orange and you then have to Unlock the phone to make it work again. Does this work permanently?Also, in relation to this, if you apply an unlock code first, can you then use the OTA update from HTC and not have your phone screw up? As it is no longer an "Orange" handset, or is the phone always hard coded to Orange in some way?

HTC Desire :: Orange Applications For Contract And Phone Appears To Debrand And Unlock

Jul 27, 2010

Ive recently bought a HTC Desire on orange contract and the phone appears to be debranded and unlocked. There is no evidence of orange applications in the menu and my other vodafone sim works with it too! Is there anyway to work out whether this has the generic HTC unbranded rom or not? And does that mean i will get the Froyo update when HTC release it?

Android :: ImageButton Flash Orange When Background Image Is Set?

Mar 26, 2009

I've set the background image of a custom ImageButton I am building, as well as setClickable(true) and setFocusable(true). The button is able to receive focus when I navigate with DPad/arrow keys in the emulator, however, it does not flash orange when it has the focus. It does not appear to change at all when it has the focus, in fact. When I remove the background image, however, the ImageButtons hold orange when they have focus.

What do I need to do to be enable an ImageButton with a custom background image to flash orange when it has focus?

HTC Desire :: Removing Orange Pre-installed Game Demos On Desire

Apr 16, 2010

This isn't a /major/ problem but it will irritate me if I can't find a solution! How can I get rid of all the game demos that Orange have so thoughtfully installed on my Desire? I've had a look in Settings > Applications but the Uninstall option for these doesn't show up.

HTC Desire :: Orange Branded Desire - Rooting - Unlocking And Froyo

Jul 23, 2010

I am toying with the idea of putting a Froyo Rom on my desire, but have several questions that aren't answered in other posts.

1. Will I need to unlock my phone before, during or after changing the Rom? I am not overly bothered by the orange stuff on my phone, but am worried about losing my WiFi connections!

2. Do I need a goldcard? Some instructions say yes, other no. None mention orange handsets specifically.

3. Which is the easiest & safest method to root my phone, if I want to put the Froyo Rom on it?

4. What if I want to change Roms - do I need to do the whole process again? I've seen something about a Rom manager, but where do you get it and how does it work?

5. Which Rom do I use? I've looked at some I'd the modacco forum ROMs, but most don't actually say what you do or don't get with them.

6. What's that difference between a2sd and a2sd+? Does it come as part of the ROM or so I news to get it separately?

HTC Hero :: Unlock Your Orange Locked Hero

Feb 18, 2010

I have been struggling for nearly 8 weeks (since Christmas Day) to try and get my Orange Hero unlocked (without rooting it). Orange insisted i had to be a customer for 3 months before they would give me a code but still would not refund the 20 they originally took for the code. So now i am trying to spread the word that it can be done pretty quickly for less than 10. Always a good idea to have HTC Sync (you can get this on the HTC website).

HTC Desire :: Can't Get 2.2 On Orange

Oct 25, 2010

I got my desire from Orange about two weeks ago and when I turned the phone on for the first time I was prompted to install 2.2. At the time I declined as I wanted to get used to the phone and avoid any issues with the Orange branded 2.2. Two days ago I decided to update, however whenever I check for updates my desire says there are no updates and that it is up to date. Has anyone else experienced this and know how I can get 2.2?

HTC Desire :: How Bad Is Orange Branding?

Apr 28, 2010

I've been having a read, and a few people here seem to find the Orange branding somewhat intrusive.So, how bad is it? I have a Desire scheduled to arrive on Friday from Orange (their �160 cashback via Quidco really tipped the balance), but if the branding causes huge problems I might prefer to reject the phone and save myself a lot of grief.

HTC Desire :: MMS On Orange Contract

Jul 24, 2010

Since lots of people here are on Orange it seems an appropriate place to ask. Do Orange charge separately for MMS even if you are on an unlimited texts contract? I get the impression they do, which is really very irritating. I don't suppose there's any way around it by ringing up and negotiating?

HTC Desire :: Orange SW Bloatware?

Nov 22, 2010

I want to get a smartphone to upgrade my Nokia 6230, yes you heard it right Nokia 6230. I am a light user, mainly want to have a device that I can browse the net if/when needed in trains, while out, etc. Any voice plan will do for me. O2 would be the best option as I have broadband with them (discount monthly). Last weekend I played with HTC HD7. CPW/o2 shop didn't have a DHD demo, but I could 'feel' the dummy handset. The both look nice, but I think the problem for me is the screen size which is massive. The Desire Z looks great but i am a bit concerned with the hinge snapping up and therefore end up with a broken phone. Having said that, I am very very inclined to go for the STD Desire.

1) Good deal on quidco at the moment (orange contract): Is it true that the HTC Desire warranty on Orange is only 1-year compared to other networks at 2-years?
2) Is the Orange SW bloatware or have they made available a plain Froyo 2.2 version?
3) Do I invalidate warranty if I unlock the phone? (Apparently Orange offers the service for �20 after 3-months in contract.

Sorry for all the questions but wanna make sure i do everything right.

HTC Desire : Orange Vs T-mobile UK?

Aug 21, 2010

I've decided to get a HTC Desire but need some advice on service providers. Here are my options: T-Mobile: free phone, 18 months, 300 mins, 300 texts & unlimited net (1GB) - �25/month.

Orange: free phone, 18 months, 300 mins, 3000 texts, 500Mb net, unlimited email, unlimited calls to magic number & orange wednesdays - �25/month.

The text and calls are more than enough in both so the deal breaker is internet access & service quality. I am leaning towards Orange as I believe they have better UK coverage, 500 Mb net is probably enough (news, email & general browsing, occasional youtube) and email is free.

What do you guys think? Anyone have experience of these two networks in the UK? Does it make more sense to go with the bigger net allowance?

HTC Desire :: Can't Make Calls On Orange

Jul 10, 2010

Lately I can be outside in Central London with 4 or more bars showing on my HTC Desire but can't make or receive any calls. This happened in the Putney area last week and yesterday I was in Camden so I thought it must be a network problem until my mate with an Orange iPhone sat next to me and starting making calls with no problem. Anyone else finding this? The phone says its dialing on the display but seconds later it says call ended. I do try various different numbers just to check but get the same results.

HTC Desire :: SMS Sending Failure On ORANGE

Jun 1, 2010

Today I've just started having many SMS failures when trying to send via my Desire handset on the Orange UK network. I've put the sim in another phone and the messages send (and receive) fine. I've done a factory reset and still the problem remains - 'SMS unable to send' notification. Eventually on a retry it seems they do send (sometimes coming through twice) but it's something that has only just started happening.

As I say I tried a factory reset and the problem remains using either the stock sms client or indeed Handcent. I also noticed before the reset when I restarted the phone it would take upto 5 minutes to achieve any phone signal at all - after the restart it finds it almost immediately.

Thank you for your email regarding your HTC Desire phone. Further to our conversation today. Once again please accept my apologies that we are unable to provide a date for the release. Please find below the link discussed to our website on a PC where you are able to check in the future if an update from us has been released. 9217080&itemid=1221037995178&itemtype=HowTo&mid=11 27450772656&pagename=OUKPersonal&pid=1096364420640 &product=Feature&t=Product&tabid=1 I have also supplied below the required steps that you will need to take in order to organise an update to your phone. Be advised to follow the on-screen instructions as it will give you necessary and required information regarding your phone. "your phone's features" > "download software updates" > "how do I download the latest software update" > "HTC Desire update" When a new update is made available by a handset manufacturer they will pass a version of this to us so that we can run the required tests to confirm that this update they have released will co-exist with the branding that you are required to use on your phone. It is possible that the new update that is released may not co-exist with our branding and thus we will not be able to release the update for the HTC Desire, if they can not co-exist and we were to release this to your phone, this could effectively be detrimental to your handset and we will not process for this reason........

HTC Desire : Orange Branded Phone

Aug 4, 2010

When searching around about getting rid of the branding on a desire everyone talks about rooting and using some other developers version of android.Is there no way to just install the proper original stock untouched virgin, HTC desire factory rom on the device. So that my device is as HTC intended.Why do i have to use some developers rom that has been messed with? Surely thats as bad as having a version that orange have butchered?Please advise.

HTC Desire : Orange Branded / Need To Unroot

Jul 23, 2010

I've been looking through this forum for a while now as i wanted to find a way of getting rid of the bloatware on my Orange Desire.I decided to try "Rooting" and used the Unrevoked 3.1 method which seemd to work as i have a new "app" called "Superuser".However, i have now developed cold feet as i don't understand what a nandroid backup is and i can't find a definitive answer on whether i need to:

A) Unlock the phone first cos it's Orange?

B) Create a 'Goldcard'?

C) Simply flash a custom ROM like the stock Froyo 2.2 or something from MoCado?

D) or leave well alone cos it's way too risky of becoming an Orange brick.

Therefore I'd like to know if i can return the phone to it's original pre rooted state?Is there a way that was as simple as rooting it using Unrevoked?
