    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

    Everything working well on my Desire since the update, only thing is the WiFi Hotspot, connects ok, but no Internet connection, Orange advised they are looking into this

    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?

    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.

    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!
