Exclamation 2.2 Orange HTC Desire Issues UK

Hey, thought I would start a thread of any issues that crop up with the new update now it's finally here. I think we ought to report them to HTC or Orange (Although when I sent message to HTC got the most broken english response that did not solve an issue)

So far I have had issue with the messaging app when searching for a message. I type a word in the search, it brings up a list of messages with that word, I click on the message of choice, and it force closes. Anyone else got this issue?

Also, on Youtube widget, at first it had connection issues, it now works, but displays subscriptions I have already watched. Anyone else got this issue also?

Post any bugs you have noticed and lets get them sorted!

I updated to orange 2.2 the other day and apart from my WiFi hotspot not working everything else is much better.

I tried the search message problem you mentioned but it worked fine for me. No force closes at all.

I have yet to try the WiFi hotspot, what issues are you having with it?

The message i get with the message search issue is "The application Messages (process com.android.mms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

Do orange HTC Desire users only get 3G+ as the fastest internet? Some wildfire friends get H but on different networks.

As I understand it, H is the same as 3G+, Orange just choose to use 3G+ symbol.

I suspect that the wifi hotspot doesn't work as orange will have disabled it as they more than likely want you to buy a dongle from them instead

I can guarantee orange disabled wifi hotspot as they don't want you using their network for such devious purposes.

....but the official Orange press release said that the Hotspot feature was being included in their update.

In Settings there's an option to turn the Hotspot on, but there's another set of options for Hotspot settings. Maybe you need to turn it on and change other settings.....?

wifi hotspot connects but no internet access
Bluetooth will pair but not stay connected to anything
Weather widget freezes on update
Scrolling on internet pages is much slower
youtube over 3g wont load videos but fine on Wifi
Not impressed at all,
In fact
after 16 years with orange off to vodaphone as soon as this contract ends. Totally disillusioned

Web scrolling does seem slower and not as smooth.

For some reason every message I have has been doubled!

Will test my Mrs Orange HTC Desire after reading your problems.

I am fine, despite having an Orange HTC Desire, I got fed up waiting for Orange to issue the update and ran a debranded HTC Update of Froyo. It doesn't appear to have any of those problems.

The link below tells you what you need to do:

Froyo (2.09.405.8) update - Windows not required

1) Hotspot not connects to PC but not to the internet
2) Text messages have duplicated.

Reckon it must have been a fluke!

If i click on "managed users" I get to see the IP and MAC address of the gadget trying to connect with an "OK" button. Hit that and still don't get any traffic to the end device.

If I have "Allowed users only" ticked, then the other gadgets cannot even connect to the Desire. I wonder if we should be doing something to add MAC addresses to make them "Allowed users" but I can't see anything that would do this?

The only thing I've found so far is that I've got another app I don't want - Flashlight.

For everyone with hotspot issues

I have the same issue, called orange and spoke to level 2 tech and was told they had been recieving hundreds of calls since the upgrade to 2.2 with the callers not able to recieve data through wifi hotspot i.e. the problem we are all having.

This issue has been referred to HTC and orange are waiting to find out just whats gone wrong. My guess orange have 'broken' the hotspot wifi feature while customizing the ROM and can not figure out how they have induced the error.

Tech. confirmed that the hotspot feature should be working without any additional fee and they have not intentionally disabled it.

Lets sit tight and hope for a software update soon!

Why, when i go in to my text messages, have all my contact names got numbers beside them? Is that the number of messages in the thread or something completely random?

@Blakey and LeahH20

If you turn plug-ins to "on demand" you should find that things improve (Internet - more - settings - scroll down to enable plug-ins and change from "always on"). This seems to be another Flash related problem.

just checked - get the same thing here.

as previously mentioned; the slow internet scrolling is a flash bug, and doing as the previous poster suggested sorted it for me

Hi new to this so nice to meet you all. Since updating to 2.2 I've noticed that it won't let me scroll through internet search images very well. Half the time it seems to completely hang and I have to use the home button to get out. The update does seem to have cured my phones not turning off bug though.

After the upgrade my battery was going down as I watched it. I fixed that problem by removing some suspect apps (battery monitor, combined battery/sdcard/phone mem widget) and then did the HTC-advised recharge cycle (8hrs phone on, 1hr phone off, 2 min wait, 1hr phone on) and it's worked BRILLIANTY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

After that, I reinstalled the apps and it's all hunky dory... apart from the fact the new USB tethering gets an IP address and doesn't connect to the internet (same for hotspot). I'd guess it's all the same issue ?. A real bummer because when it used to be called "internet sharing" under 2.1 it worked a treat - I even managed run a Citrix session from my office on it :-)

Deffo do the battery cycle thing and remove and re-apply those widgets. It makes a world of difference. I couldn't believe it myself...

I think it's an excellent little app. I used to have a small, but still fairly bulky torch on my keyring as where I live isn't best lit.

Anyone having any issues with the screen lock since upgrading to 2.2?
I got my update yesterday and now when I "Drag down to unlock", the slider bar will often bounce back up or stick halfway off the screen - I can eventually get it to unlock after a slight delay, but it takes many attempts. Annoying when your alarm is going off in the morning!

hi, I have an issue when I'm writing an sms message.. mid way through typing the screen jumps up to the top of the conversation and I have to scroll down to see what I'm typing. This happens quite regularly and I didn't notice the problem before the update although I didn't have the phone very long prior to 2.2.

Has anyone else had this problem or know of a cure?

cheers

Angry orange update..........booo

I have jsut spent 55 mins on the phone to orange and they have no idea on HTC or any problem solving...that is after you have spent most of the time trying to explain the problem to a call centre overseas, and then eventually the UK based engineer has now solution or idea of a problem with the update on the desire.......waste of time..

called HTC straight through to a teckie and they are helpful but still dont know how to solve the problem arrh....

ran update and all appears fine apart from my own calendar has gone and only the forced google account is available, and I can not add a new calendar either .......

any ideas or help would be good...

thanks for reading my rantings but i just want my calandar back!
it cant be that hard.....can it!?

hi all,

I got my froyo update on orange - I sent it in for repair a few weeks back (random crashing) and they've loaded the new 2.2 update.

i've had it for a couple of days now, and have noticed :

1. scrolling through my pics in the gallery is much slower ; pics load as i scroll slowly, then need to reload again if i scroll a few pages down and scroll back

2. facebook stream app; FB status messages are also slow when scrolling down - all messages used to be instant, but now it takes a few moments for the actual FB status updates to appear as i scoll down, and up

3. handcent - messages take a few moments to show the sending state (never used the stock message app, but it again also seems to take a few moments to send (shows a "please wait" pop up.

4. web links also take a few moments before the browser even tries loading it

in summary, the phone doesnt feel as slick as it used to on 2.1...or they may have knackered up my phone when they were repairing it. is anyone else having these similar probs??? its driving me nuts (i'm an impatient man)

I've exactly same issue, don't know of a fix though. Phone seemed generally smoother before update.

Has anyone noticed that the update screws the blue tooth up? The first phone was fine till the update then bluetooth wouldn't stay connected to anything for very long, got a replacement which I updated straight away before I did anything else and this one did the same. Orange performed an OTA diagnostic on both fones and detected a fault. Got another one comming tomorrow and am reluctant to update it if it's a common problem and not a coincidence.

I have had no problems with 2.2 so far (after a day's worth of use)

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

After that, I reinstalled the apps and it's all hunky dory... apart from the fact the new USB tethering gets an IP address and doesn't connect to the internet (same for hotspot). I'd guess it's all the same issue ?. A real bummer because when it used to be called "internet sharing" under 2.1 it worked a treat - I even managed run a Citrix session from my office on it :-)

Deffo do the battery cycle thing and remove and re-apply those widgets. It makes a world of difference. I couldn't believe it myself...
Did you have to root to remove the apps?

any chance you could provide a detailed step by step guide of doing this? my battery life is flipping shocking at the moment!
