Had my HTC Desire for about a week now; brilliant phone Although the battery life is not poor (lasts about a day and a half/ two days with little use), when I check to see what is draining the battery, it seems to always be maps that is the culprit, even though I am now (knowingly) using the maps application or GPS etc.
I have done a little research and it seems that is could be the 'use wireless networks' option that is causing this so I have just now disabled this and will see how it goes. Any reasons as to why maps might be showing up as using the largest (if not, second largest) chunk of battery power?
I tried to sync my phone with my computer I have also tried to access the phones memory card through my computer but thier is no card mounted and sync does not register. The phone charges but I can not see it as an external drive. I have the latest version of sync on my computer but I can not access the files on my phone at all. I need to remove photos and documents so that I can speed up my phone and reset it.

I am in the US. I just got an unlocked Nokia E72.I don't have data plan.I am wondering whether I can access internet through the university wireless, like my laptop? If I can, could anyone tell me how to set the wireless connection?
I have a wireless LAN access point on my phone that is draining my battery because it always seems to be trying to connect to it. I do not want this access point but because the phone thinks it is connected (it can't be because it was over 1 mile from my current location) it will not let me delete it. How can I delete this access point?

I bought a friend's 6 month old N97 (when he bought his iphone) and I seem to be having problems already. I can't access my gmail even when I'm in a wireless zone. It seems to be frozen. I don't have up to date mail and the mail from the past week are still there even though it's been deleted from the computer. Any suggestions?
I have set up a WLAN access point on the phone to access the internet and email via my wireless modem/router.Problem is, once I make one internet connection, it doesn't allow me to make another or to connect to email, even after the first connection was closed.
If I delete the WLAN access point, I can access the internet and email no problem but I need to select the WLAN and enter the key first.Seems like a problem with my WLAN access point settings.
What is the easiest way to tether my berry to my laptop? I am a small business owner, and I often do work late at night in my truck, with no access to WiFi. I remember a long time ago seeing a thread on it, but I recall it being slightly complicated/using commant prompt.
Bascially, I need to know how to delete a wireless access point. My phone is obsessed with using a Wifi access point called Spectrum (I once used it to connect at some motorway services).It is the default access point and nothing I do will change it!I have tried reseting the phone, but makes no difference!Any ideas?
This probably a dumbass question but i was wondering if there is a way to access the internet wirelessly on my pc through my phone.i have heard of people doing this but im not sure on models of phones or service carriers.
Recently i moved to Saudi for a project related work and I am staying in an apartment where they provide the wifi. first 2 days I was able to connect to the wifi and internet was working fine. After that my phone will detect the wifi in my room and it will connect to the wifi, but no internet access. And the same time it is working fine with the wifi in my office. So i did the Factory data reset, but still its not working. My friends are using different android phones and they are able to access the internet, even I can use my laptop to connect to the wifi.
When using Motocast wireless between my XOOM2 and PC (Running windows 7 Home Premium) I can access the music folder, pictures folder and the videos folder ok. But it will access the documents folder. A message is displayed saying the remote computer is not found. But it must be found ok as the other folders mentioned can be accessed.
Received the Desire HD yesterday but it won't connect to my Wifi (although it says it is connected) as when I try to access the market, web browser, gmail it won't connect unless I switch on my 3G connection. The wifi symbol is present at the top of the screen.
Had my Desire for a while now, but just recently I have been working away from home and my laptop doesn't have wifi (I know, I should get a new laptop... but it works fine). I was wondering if I can use my desire a a usb wifi dongle?
My service provider does not like tethering, so I was wondering if when I share the desire's data connection it will use the phone's wifi rather than 3g connection? (obviously in an area where I have access to a wifi access point).
My phone works fine with my home WiFi, but as soon as I am out of range, the phone automatically connects with the BTFON/BTOpenzone network (which shows up as an 'Open network', although you have to subscribe to actually connect to it).This doesn't really bother me much, except that when I get back into range of my home network, the phone remains 'connected' to the BT open networks and I have to reconnect manually to my home network. Does anyone know if there is a way to get the phone always to ignore BT? Or at least to make my home network the preferred one when I'm in range?
I am new to this and not overly tech savy so pls excuse me in advance! I completed an upgrade on my Desire this morning when prompted to do so on the handset. Since then I have noticed my WIFI is not working. If I turn it on, it goes to "scanning" but has been doing this for nealry 2 hours. I have turned off and back on, also taken battery out for a few minutes and nothing.
I have recently migrated to the Desire HD from Nokia E71. And while Im in awe of every new feature I discover with each passing second, theres a problem with the wifi system thats driving me nuts.
My DHD recognises and connects to my home wifi (Linksys E1000) but is unable to browse or run any app that requires internet access (Facebook, Twitter, Maps etc). At the same time, upon disabling wifi, it manages to do everything (browse, FB, twitter etc) on the GPRS connection of my teleco. Hence the problem (I think) is with the router and not the DHD.
I have spent a whole day looking for possible solutions on the web - upgraded to Linksys E1000 from my earlier WRT54G, Changed the channel from 13 to 6 (and experimented with others as well), Reserved the DHD in the DHCP of the router, Changed the security to WPA2 PSK - In short, almost everything I read would fix the problem, but to no avail.
I have just downloaded the new software and installed it and now my wifi doesn't work : although it connects very well to my router, no internet pages are loading, facebook isn't working either. It all works well if I turn the wifi off...
Ive had my Desire HD for around 5 months now and from day 1 I've noticed that the wifi reception of the handset is terrible, I literally have to be within 5 metres of my router in order to get a signal, if I move to another room the signal drops to 1 bar pretty much straight away and then once I begin browsing drops completely and reverts to 3g. As I say this has been pretty much from day 1 and since then the handset has been treated with great care so are these phones that bad for signal?
