So i bought this phone exactly 18 days before on my B'day!
I said Nty to iPhone for this HTC Desire and i really loved it so far
(except a few things like hard to open battery cover, peanut size internal storage)

 Lips sealed  Cry Angry Ok so the problem.....  Shocked Huh Sad

The phone was on low battery and i had to go out for a few hours...
so the phone came to 5% battery and i kept using it.. and soon it powered off. ok cool...

I charged it using the charger for few hours and its acting wierd,
I can start the phone alright, it loads up a lot of background processes etc when i start the phone,
i have Lock 2.0 installed and it shows up normally, but when i unlock it, nothing happens.... Shocked
The normal Desktop pages/ whatever its called dont show!!! Lips sealed

I tried to call myself, and i received the call and after closing the call it stuck on the contact info. pg. Cry

Any help?

Weird.  Sounds like something got screwed up really bad when it shut down.  Try a factory reset.

I know....  Sad

So i tried to call again, and after i disconnect the call, i unlock the screen again... same thing..
Its stuck on the Call ended page.

I try to press the Find button, and it actually works.. shows the phone list...
I tried to select a contact and email... opens the Gmail... and i tried to send.. seems ok...

I guess the Android system has got corrupted or something... somethings are working fine.. but the menu button doesn't show settings or the Desktop page or anything. Just stuck on the call page now after i close email.

So is this what happens when you try to completely use up the battery  Huh
I guess no more playing around lolz.

Nah, mine have been used up a fair few times, and the phones never had a problem with it.  I guess you were just unlucky or have some app which corrupted the OS as a result of the unexpected shutdown.  I'd simply try to avoid it in the future.

I don't mind Factory resetting it, All i really have on it is contacts, which i have backed up.
But i cannot goto the Settings page, except the Wifi page that opened to let me connect Gmail, and now i cannot disconnect it... Tongue But i'll manage that. (by changing Wifi pass, and rebooting it haha.)

Oh and i got some Market Apps updates when it went on wifi, but i closed it.
Maybe i'll wait for morning if it shows more updates, i will uninstall all of them.... before calling the helpline.

Thx for the help tho.

No need to go to the settings page.  Here's HTC's instructions for that :

Quote from: HTC
Performing a factory reset using phone buttons
If you cannot turn on your phone or access the phone settings, you can still perform a factory reset by using the buttons on the phone.

With the phone turned off, press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then briefly press the POWER button.
Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the VOLUME DOWN button..
Press VOLUME DOWN to select CLEAR STORAGE, and then press POWER.
Press VOLUME UP to start the factory reset.

Congrats to me, i am here again... You guessed it!!  Lips sealed

I was in a call, and could not close the call pressing the BACK BACK key few times,
and trying to get to the top bar, the screen would go black (probably trying to be smart and assuming i put it on ears?)  and so, i could not exit the dam call... and i dialled by mistake, so i HAD to close it quick lol.

I pressed the power button, and voila.  Grin

*BOOM*

 Angry

 Cry
Here i am, doing another factory reset.
