I'm on t-mobile with an HTC Desire S. Last week I got a phone update of about 200 Mb. I'm now on Android 2.3.5, HTC Sense 3.0 and software 2.10.110.8, which seems to have solved the problem I think. Anyone had the same?

Same problem, HTC Desire S on Orange with Android 2.3.3 HTC Sense 2.1, software 1.47.61.1

I have the update to 2.3.5 available - in fact, it's been available a while, in fact, I already applied it once and it pretty much totally bricked the handset ( constant crash-reboot cycles ).

So, I got a new handset from Orange and left it well alone.

But I still have the signal dropping issue.

So, the question is, has anyone had any issue with the 2.3.5 update? Should I crack on and not worry about a reoccurrence of the 2.3.5 issue?

I have been on 2.3.5, Sense 3.0, s/w no: 2.14.415.3 since Dec. initially I had the 2.3.2 with the sense 2.1. I dont remeber the s/w no. But I had two issues. One was the irritating habit of my phone either switching off or rebooting itself.
The signal issue was also a probelem...my colleaugues Samsung or Iphone would show full signal and mine would drop out.

But after the upgrade to the current software I have not had a problem so far. Maybe it is a problem with the 1.47 version.

finally come to the end of my tether waiting for a OTA update from tmobile\htc and so two weeks ago decided to flash a new ROM. no difference, poor signal still and still late text messages and still sometimes people couldnt get a call through to me. decided to flash the radio last week. everything is how it supposed to be!!! messages are received the minute they are sent to me and all calls getting through and better signal in all places i go to where signal was poor before. IF I HADNT FLASHED THE RADIO MYSELF I WOULD BE STILL WAITING FOR AN UPDATE TO A PROBLEM IVE HAD SINCE LAST OCTOBER!!!!!! F**K YOU HTC AND YOU TMOBILE!!

Update:

I applied the OTA update to 2.3.5 and my phone was pretty much bricked. Seemed very unlikely to happen to two separate phones and so it proved, the issue was the sim. Very similar issue, dropping signal etc but with 2.3.5 the phone was permanently unstable.

New sim and 2.3.5 and the phone is great.

I have a Desire S with Android version 2.3.5, but it has unstable signal problem in WCDMA mode. So I looked it up on Google and this thread came up first!
This thread has been helpful regarding the signal problem. As mentioned in the old posts, setting the mobile network to GSM-only provides signal-stability.
Another alternative - signal reset app mentioned here.
Let's see if the upcoming ICS update fixes the problem!

Hi clarkster99, and welcome to AF

Do you mean the FM radio app? That's very surprising if so, as there's actually no connection at all between the FM and and the cellular signal, and if the FM app is interfering with the cellular radio software that's a bizarre bug indeed. But if it's solved it for you then good luck

As that's a Desire C it's not the same phone or software that is being discussed here though.

Hi guys, just had to sign up to say I've just taken delivery of a new Desire C yesterday;

Android v 4.0.3
HTC Sense v 4.0
Software No. 2.00.1132.3

on BT Mobile (vodafone carrier)

and I already have had the signal dropping problem, and calls going straight to voicemail, only getting signal back if I restart or switch to aeroplane mode and back.

Also, watching the signal meter you could see it wavering, going up and down from 0/1 bar to full and back.

I have since (having read a post above) force stopped and disabled all radio apps and anything to do with radio...atm, the signal meter is holding steady at full bars and the signal has not dropped since....YET.

I will keep you posted. Fingers crossed eh

A quick update,

surprise surprise, it didnt work. Signal still drops frequently. BT's answer is to send me a replacement handset, the same model! FAIL.

BT are charlatans, do not do business with them.
