an ATT business customer I bought two HTC Status phones in September.
One for myself and one for another member of our company. Within a 30
days both phones were having the same memory issues. Headaches... Cons:
I. Buggy Issues 1.
Has an irritating problem while typing text messages. As you type
messages it sometime throws you out of your text message box in the
middle of a typing stroke. Very frustrating.2.
If you are in the middle of typing a message you will have it all
wiped out if a new call or message arrives while typing. Again very
Irritating. II OUT Of Memory ERROR-- the big one
1. OUT of Memory Error: I repeatedly had to go into programs and delete programs and data several times per week. 2.
The memory error would give you a routine that was supposed to clear
up the error. Very seldom did it address the memory issue. 3. Appears that HTC has some software issues yet they continue to allow the phone to be shipped and sold. 4.
I called tech support for HTC 1-866-449-8358. . I hoped they might
have some patch or update. Nothing, the tech guy tried to simply walk
me through the data deletion routine. 5. The phones are being sold as something they are not. The are almost non functioning for practical every day use. 6.
My phone shows 138 Meg used of 150 Megs available.... (I have
downloaded 21 applications six of which are Google related . ) A
2010 Neilson Study showed smart phone users downloading an average of
27 apps to their phone, which is up from 22 in December 2009. According
to Nielsen, which conducted a survey among
4,000 mobile subscribers, the iPhone not surprisingly led the pack with
users downloading an average of 40 apps. Android came in second with 25
downloads per device, 150
Megs!!! HTC is too smart to have not know this was insufficient.. It
was flawed at development and they knew it when they put it on the
market. They got greedy and figured most of you would not bother to
protest. They have taken our money and are now running. III Poor Battery Performance: Ive
had a lot of smart phones Treo, Blackberry, I-phone, and the HTC
STATUS is by far the worst performer with regards to battery life.PROs If
you are looking for a real keyboard on in a compact, easy to handle,
ergonomically designed smart phone the HTC Status is a winner. It looks
sharp, feels good......it just doesn't work very well. Would I recommend this phone? I wouldn't even think about it. It sucks!
I don't know about the rest of it. In fact, I keep mine away from the charger for days on end and have never even reached the half-way point on the battery gauge.
the one thing that DOES perplex me is the thing where it randomly jumps out of the text box and to the top of the conversation while trying to send text messages. WTF is that crap?
my htc wilsfire s, was keep on restarting.... every time it will report the problem to HTC.... but i dont know what to do... search for HTC service center.....
depresssed due to this..... 1 hour once it was restarting
Hi @rnjithb. There are definitely some troubleshooting steps you can try, so that you will be able to use your Wildfire S again!
First, soft reset your phone. Remove the battery for one minute, replace it, and turn the phone on. If it continues to restart, you can attempt to put it into Safe Mode. This will temporarily disable all third-party applications at startup and – if this behavior is caused by an app – may allow you into the phone. To enter Safe Mode, restart the phone and as soon as it begins to boot up, press and hold the Volume Down button; keep holding until you see the words “Safe Mode” in the bottom corner of the screen. You can then uninstall your most recent downloaded applications by going to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Downloads. Tap on the app to uninstall and choose ‘Uninstall’. Restart the phone as normal to exit Safe Mode when you are done.
Sometimes problems can be caused by damaged or faulty accessories, like SIM and micro-SD cards, and batteries. Remove your SIM card and restart the phone. If it still reboots, place it back in, remove the SD card and start the phone. You can also try restarting the phone with a battery from another Wildfire S, if you have one available.
There can be many different causes for a phone to restart. If you require more assistance, the answers to the following questions will help us determine the next step to take:
When did your Wildfire S begin restarting? How many times per day does it do this?
Are you able to use the phone for any length of time before it restarts? If so, how long can you use it?
What was happening on the phone at the time of the restart? If you were using an application, please let us know which one(s).
Does this happen only in a specific location or locations?
Please come back and update us after you’ve completed the troubleshooting steps!
