Yes it's since I've updated that the problems have all started. Wish I could revert back to the previous version but no such luck.
I'm with T-Mobile UK.

Ask one of the others , but I would think either rooting (if you're up for it ) or mabye flashing a RUU could get you back on older software

I don't know how to do either but if it means I can go back to a more stable Desire HD then I'm up for it.

Running an appropriate (branded or unbranded) RUU (which is an .exe file) from your computer will put your phone back to previous firmware.

Is your phone carrier branded or is it non-branded?

Does carrier branded mean if I got it from a mobile operator? If so it's T-Mobile. If not explain what you mean please.

As in, when you start the device up, does it/ have a t-mobile splash screen (t-mobile logo screen) and did it come with a load of pre-installed apps that you cannot remove?

If it does, then your handset is carrier branded (and that would make things a little more difficult, but not impossible), if not, then it is unbranded (and that means that things would be easier).

It would mean that you would need a copy of a T-Mobile RUU in order to flash the phone back to an older version of the software. These are harder to find, but I will have a look when I get in from work this evening!
