    Hi all,

    My Desire is beginning to annoy me, it just doesn't seem to want to work! My signal is full but when I try and make a call it just beeps and cancels the call. I keep getting texts from Orange saying people are trying to call me but I never get calls. Texts keep failing too.

    Oh and I've tried switching off everything (Plane mode) but that does nothing, and when I restart the device it asks me to set the time when it turns back on??

    Something is going very wrong and it's really beginning to p**s me off. I'm currently running a completely stock Desire on Orange with all the branding intact. I might flash it with a generic ROM anyway but I want to try a Froyo release as they look pretty nice!

    Any suggestions!?

    perhaps swap it out under warranty as is sounds like your handset may be faulty.

    One thing that was catching me out was if the desire took a number from facebook it would start 44, which makes the number invalid, as i should either be +44 or 0 beginning. This problem would cause the phone call to fail.

    Seems like a defective device.. you should get it replaced.

    No it happens on all call, not just ones from facebook.

    It seems to be quite temperamental though, sometimes it will work OK. I might just take it into the shop and get another one!

    Hi

    I have this problem from time to time. Try going settings/wireless & networks/mobile networks/network mode and puitting to GSM Only. Wait 1 minute then try to make a call and you should find that it works. If this solves the problem, contact Orange and work out when they will be fixing the issue.

    It's not the handset, it's the shite network!!!
