    Hi all,

    It seems that quite a few people have had problems with the Desire S not booting up and having to be sent for repair.

    I had this problem 3 weeks ago. Took it back to the T-Mobile shop and they sent it for repair so now using the old hero (which was great at the time but no comparison to the Desire S).

    Unfortunately though It is now 3 weeks since it went in for repair and looking at the repair status at tmobile online it has been 2 weeks awaiting parts. I've contacted tmobile 3 times and the actual repair centre once. the repair centre told me that my phone needs a new mother board so basically everything will be replaced except the
    shell. But because the parts are coming from htc they don't know when it will be reparied.

    This is not good, I had the phone less than 3 months. I understand things go wrong but it really does seem like there is a problem with the Desire S.

    Aside from this I had a software update 1 day before the day it died. Not sure if this caused it to die (my mates Desire S is still running but he's on orange and perhaps they didnt issue the update)???

    Anyway would be good to quantify this.
