    Im new to this forum but am very impressed and glad I registered. I work for my self but wont go into detail, don't want to bore you all. I do like my phones though, I proberbly shouldn't mention this but my first smartphones were the N70 and then the N95 I then moved on to th Hero. I had a lot of problems with the hero, 4 replacement handset in total and then Orange asked if I would like to try the Desire, well thats a no brainer. Well Im now on my 2nd Desire and its looking as though this one will have to be replaced. Problems with this one are, when I switch the phone on in the mornings it is taking between 5 and 10 mins for mobile network to connect and according to HTC thats not right, have done a hard reset but that didn't sort it out. 2nd problem, I can receive MMS okish but cannot send them, settings have been checked, double checked and triple checked. Last night I did manage to get one to send so I thought I had it sorted, wrong, this afternoon it wouldn't send. Notification say unable to send, generic network error. 3rd problem when I creat a new mms I attch the pic, tap on done and then send I get a Red exclamation mark to the right of the slide show image I want to send. If any one knows what this red exclamation mark means please let me know.
    Any way to try and sort these problems out Orange are sending me a new sim card and if this doesn't sort it then it looks like a new phone.
    Apart from these problems I think it is a fantastic phone.
    If any one has any sugestion regarding the above problems please let me know.

    Thanks all

    Thanks, nice to be here. Any ideas on the red exclamation mark when trieing to send mms, got me stumped. Cannot find any info about this on HTC website either.

    I think Paul's post was a clone, he sent it to me too. It seems that your phone is cursed... No idea what it is... Try the Desire section of the forum. All the best :)

    Just an update to the problems I was haveing with my desire. Orange didn't know what was causing the red exclamation mark when sending and receiving MMS, so they sent me out a brand new phone. I asked if I could have a black one and they said yes, other one was brown. Im glad I went for the black as it is much better. On the brown one the power button and the volume up/down were very loose and wouldn't always respond very well but on the black one there's no movement and they are a lot more positive. So all good at the moment.

    I did email HTC about the red exclamation mark and here is what they said: After looking into this further it would appear the red exclamation mark only appears if the phone is unable to send a message. Please use the previous settings to set up the phone. Alternatively you can also use the following procedure to restore the default settings: 1. on the device, tap the menu icon. 2. select settings>wireless & networks>mobile networks>access point names. 3. press the menu key and tap restore defaults.
