Hey, Firstly thanks to everyone who has replied to my posts to help me with Desire problems. I am on my second handset and I am having so many problems with the phones I'm thinking of just giving up and trying to switch to a Samsung Galaxy S. I'm on the wretched Orange network and my phone has these problems: - Non-working FM radio - it is static on every setting, although sometimes Radio 2 works(!) regardless of what headphones are plugged in. - Alarm not working - It just doesn't go off if left overnight, even when turned on and with 2 alarms set. - No internet via 3g - It gives no traffic, completely dead regardless of signal strength. It works via GSM and HSDPA. - Randomly dropping calls. - Randomly not able to send texts. - People ring me and it goes randomly straight to answerphone. - Erratic bluetooth, sometimes it works ok, other times it randomly disconnects from headset or car system. It seems like almost every problem present on this forum, my phone has at once and it's driving me mad. Can someone please tell me, are these problems likely to be due to the horrible old ROM version that Orange runs (22.214.171.124)? They won't update it because it is too much work to stuff all of their crapware onto newer versions (solely designed to make you pay for things that are already available free, e.g. maps, ringtones etc). I dread to think how long it will be for Froyo on Orange. I am scared of updating the firmware incase it doesn't fix my problems and then I may not be able to get a replacement. Has anyone else used a replacement firmware to get rid of any of the above problems, or should I bite the bullet and go for a Samsung (I know it is cheaper built and doesn't have sense but at least it works right?). Does anyone know if the new "Black" handset on Orange runs the same firmware or has any updates? Also, that awesome Clock feature on Desire, with Alarm, Stopwatch, Timer, etc. Is that Android or Desire cos I'd hate to lose it by changing from HTC. Thanks. Any advice would be much appreciated. I love the Desire and the helpful community here, but I'm so pissed off that this phone costs as much as a desktop PC and it doesn't even perform basic functions properly. It's basically the worst phone I've ever had, despite also being the best if you know what I mean. Thanks a lot for any advice as I don't know what to do.
