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 220.127.116.11, which seems to have solved the problem I think. Anyone had the same?
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.
Device(s): htc desire S
samsung S3 mini
samsung note 10.1

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!!
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.
i have desire S 2.3.5, Sense 3.0, s/w no: 18.104.22.168 checked for s/w update non available i have all the same probs mentioned in this thread also i cannot use answer phone after factory reset, no number stored on sim and cannot call orange on mobile i dial 123 on handset and get "welcome to voice mail to listen to ur messages press 1" so i press one and it has no affect just cycles through menu... orange web site useless information spoken to orange 4 times last lady got bored and hung up still 12 month on contract well pigged off
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 i have a htc desire c an i have had the exact same problem but i think i may have found a solution o an by the way i am with 3 well i spent alot of time trying to find out a solution an i think i may have an it has worked an i get a signal, because the signal used is the same as the signal used on the radio i uninstalled the updates on my radio app that all ready comes on the htc an suprisingly i now have a signal
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 this didnt work i found that it done nothing must of been because i was in a different room but still bu doing the radio thing it still didnt work an yes i have the desire c but i get the exact problem as the desire s an even other types of phones work in my house but i have no signal

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.
HTC's line of Desire phones have been wildly successful. There was the original HTC Desire, then the Desire HD and Desire Z, and now the HTC Desire S will continue the tradition of excellence. There aren't any sweeping changes from the orig... Read More
