    Hey guys,

    My HTC desire S gives this white flash and goes blank on standby for every 2 minutes. Everything else works fine on the phone. There seems to be no problem when it is on use. It is a brand new phone. Pleaseeeee help!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    It is like a white flicker...which happens every 2 minutes. I dont know if it is because of some application running in the background or if the phone itself is faulty...please help!!!!

    Mine is also doing this.

    I notice it at night, the screen will flash white very briefly and then go back to normal.

    As with the system crashes it seems to also do this at random.

    Both my handsets have done this and a factory reset did not solve the issue.

    So when did you buy your phone? Mine is just 2 weeks old.

    I got the phone the day it was released in the UK and then took it back approx 10 days later and got another. Ive had this one for nearly 3 weeks.

    Yes i have contacted HTC about the phone crashing, the screen flashing and the landscape text message backspace bug.

    I should also say i have not heard back from them yet!

    Try it yourself???

    Ive already factory reset my handset and it has not solved my problems.

    I'm still awaiting a reply from HTC in regards to the issues i informed them about.
