    Anyone got the location part of HTCSense.com working with their Desire HD yet?

    Mine claims it's not activated on my handset despite the fact it is :(

    Yeah, same here.

    Maybe it's disabled until the official launch?

    I've also just text myself and I've not received the text... don't think it's the finished article yet.

    Tried locking my phone as well, doesn't work.

    It has synced my contacts correctly though.

    Same here, locking didnt work! The "Ring" function did, and it rang instantly too!

    Guys keep in mind this handset isn't officially launched. Just wait until next week and maybe some of the services will activate.

    bull. There are loads of phones out there already. If HTC didnt release them, who did?!?

    If there are some problems with an early batch I would say HTC are fixing the problems as live faults as we speak. They will probably just delay the remainder until main issues are ironed out via an OTA fix. They wouldnt want the publicity of releasing a phone thats a dog, so they say they are unofficial. How the heck did they leave their factory then??? There is a lot of control over how and when makers release new tech, esp when there is a deal with major players signed up.

    The phone has been released. It's available from several dealers and it's announced on the HTC website.

    I know there are serious stock shortages and not all suppliers have stock yet, but it's certainly been released.

    The HTCSense.com issue is just one of several bugs I've found so far. There are a few faults with the Desire HD that have appeared already...

    I have to agreed, It's not officially launched through mobile operators yet.

    HTC do have a fixed guideline with Operators to my understanding (got the info from the press office) which is week commencing 25th.

    Naturally HTC will ship them out to 3rd partys (IE CPW), and they will have an agreed date too.

    Goes in circles really.

    Now I've fixed the proximity issue I don't really have an issue with mine (that I know of).

    HTCSense.com, most features don't work including phone locator and messages.

    Pictures take forever to load in Gallery.

    Phone has occasional slow downs and freezes. I've had to pull the battery once to get it back.

    Occasionally fails to install software from the market, just sits there and waits until you force close the market and start it all again.

    i've had a few htcsense errors too. one time my entire phonebook disappeared until i reboot, keypad has frozen a few times while i see the sync icon in the top corner... i'm sure it'll all get ironed out, but it's not 100% smooth yet.

    The slow downs don't appear to be happening since the OTA update this morning and the gallery problem has certainly been fixed. All my photos loaded ridiculously quickly this time where as before the OTA update it took around 30-40 seconds!

    OTA appears to have fixed the following for me,

    Gallery showing pictures instantly instead of 30-40 seconds
    No keyboard lag
    No slow downs and freezes

    So I'm happy :)
