Ok guys time for an update on my phone.

Since my last post I have factory reset my phone, but it made no difference to the rebooting problem. I have sorted out my battery issue finally using the app JuiceDefender and turning off all auto updates. Doing this I started getting a minimum of 36 hours battery life, which I think is pretty good.

I finally got my FroYo 2.2 update on sunday from O2, but I still have the same problem of the phone crashing when I access anything through 3G, but yet is OK when accessing the same programs through wi-fi.  This is using the programs that come with the update, i havent reinstalled any of the other apps as yet. Navigator is particularly bad, but basically any program accessing internet through 3G causes a reboot after a few minutes!

So it looks like I am going to send it back for repairs. This fault is not FroYo specific as it happened before I updated to 2.2. It must be an inherent fault. Will contact HTC again or maybe O2 and get this sorted.

ok a few months have passed since my last post so thought it would be useful to give a further update.

Following my last post I continued trying to sort out the rebooting problems with my phone, resetting, re-installing apps one by one, but rebooting seemed to get worse, happening randomly during phone calls, during texting, internet use, in fact virtually every time I used the phone more than a couple of mins. Enough was enough so two weeks before Christmas I took my phone into O2 to be sent in for repairs.
On the 30th December I got a message to say my phone was back and ready to pick up which I did on the 31st! With the phone was a letter from O2 to say that the phone could not be fixed by HTC within their 7 day turnaround and so they were sending me a new replacement phone. All I could think was what if this one developed the same problem! I checked the serial number as most phones reported to have problems started with an 06, like mine, but the new one had an 08! Within the first 5 days of receiving it I got my phone setup as it was on the old phone, inlcuding re-installing all the same apps (see above). I have now had my phone for 11 days and it hasnt rebooted once! I dont want to tempt fate but it appears to be working fine and this is without taking any measures to reduce battery use. I have it set to sync automatically, GPS is on to be used when required, I have the Aquarium live wallpaper installed again. Yes this has reduced battery life between recharges from the 2 days I was getting before to just one working day, which means I recharge every night. But this is acceptable to me to have the phone functioning as I want it! So while not resolving what was wrong with my old phone, I am now happy that I have a phone that behaves like a smartphone should. Fingers crossed it continues to........otherwise I will report back.

I have the same problem (Desire S). My phone started to overheat and reboot about 2-3 months after i got it. Then one time it was so bad that it would not turn on anymore. Not a single button responded, so they send it back to the factory and they replaced the motherboard. They had to because it was fried. When i got it back it all worked fine until now, about 1 month after they replaced the motherboard. I just had another overheat and reboot. I am sad to see they replaced my old motherboard with one that has the same flaws. Otherwise i love this phone.

Nothing to do with the battery in my case. I can get it to go a max of 4 days. Right when it happened it had been on for two days and after the overheat and crash it still had 30% battery.

Android 2.3.3 Sense 2.1

Only non standard apps are: Advanced task killer, alarmdroid, adao file manager, unread count, advanced clock, firefox, linkedin, whatsapp and g+.

Max 4 day battery use:
Screen timeout 30sec
Power saver 30%
Display at 14% unless i need more.
No live wallpaper
Auto task killer set to 2 hours.
3g and wifi are off, unless when im using them.

just got my Desire back from vodafone, new mainboard, i already tested in sunny Lisbon (27c) working in the sun, for navigation in the car with google maps navigation,  
the old one, in direct sun lite it would not stay on for 5m.
Now it is ok!
and since it is a new mainboard and IMEI, i have a renew 2 YEAR WARRANTY . thx voda... lol

but that's not all, they also changed my screen from a SLCD to a OMOLED Huh
and i don't think that's ok!

when i delivered my desire to vodafone, they lent one other htc desire to me, it also was amoled, but it add much better viewing angle, and less tending to blue.

my new screen was a very poor viewing angle because the colors tend to much to the blue when i tilt the phone, it also is very bright, does not have as much definition as the SLCD, and i think the one voda lent to me ad also better definition,  but at least the black is really black and color very vivid! Smiley

do you think that what i have  seen, 3 different screen's in 1 week, and considering the characteristics of my new screen, are normal for amoled screen? ?

thx in advance (sorry for the inglish)
