T-Mobile OTA 2.2 update for Wildfire

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi all,

My other halfs wildfire has just caused a few blue words and panics as it just updated... apparently t-mobile announced that some customers will be getting an over the air update.

with the device suddenly taking half a life time to come back on causing me to google wildly looking to see if anyone else had similar issues, when the whole thing finally kicks back in and im now left with a sluggish unbranded htc wildfire. (edit - not that it was branded before, i bought it from fones4u and the unbranded GSM wildfire was all they had, as apposed to the tmobile version they should have given us)

so what has this update actually given?

I know there is now an option for wifi hotspot (big whup-de-doo) and apparently allows for "flash lite" but live wallpapers arent activated and i havent got an sd card that will allow for trialling app2sd.

has anyone else have the mis/fortune to try out this update yet?

Bob

I have a T-Mobile Wildfire and received a message that an OTA update was available. I grabbed the download and installed, now my Wildfire won't respond to any of the buttons (except the power button) and the touchscreen doesn't respond either.

I can't even answer when I get an incoming call, although it does show a missed call.

In short, I can't do ANYTHING with it.

Called 150 and eventually (after four or five attempts) got through to a human being who listened to my problem before passing me onto someone else, who listened to my problem before passing my details on to someone at HTC who will call me back tomorrow morning sometime.

I'll continue this after the call from HTC.

******EDIT******

I called Wednesday evening (29/12/2010) at about 9pm, and am awaiting HTC's call which is due Thursday 30/12/2010 first thing in the morning.

OK, so the HTC people didn't get back to me, so I phoned them.

After telling my tale once again, and being put on hold, the decision was made to reset to factory settings thereby losing all the apps and data that I had accrued over the past few weeks. Fortunately I had not commited the cardinal sin of procrastination - I had backed up my phone recently, as we all should. I have lost a few messages and emails, but I can live with that.

The reset procedure is simplicity itself, just hold the volume down button and press the power button momentarily. As soon as the three androids show up at the bottom of the screen let go of the volume down button and then use the volume buttons to scroll up and down untill CLEAR STORAGE is highlighted, press the power button and hey presto - all your data is no more!! Unfortunately, this did nothing to restore functionality to my Wildfire :(

after a little more fiddling it was decided that the touch-screen had died but that it had nothing to do with the update.

So now I'm wrapping my Wildfire in bubble wrap and attaching a return label which I received via email. UPS will collect it tomorrow morning and deliver it to HTC in Milton Keynes. I will be using an old Cybershot for up to 14 days while they assess and repair the Wildfire.

I will end this sad tale as soon as my little treasure has been returned to me.

It's unlocked, just branded... I wouldn't be surprised if all of the carphone whorehouses are now 2.2 too. I'm quite happy to wait for unrevoked

Well, I finally got my Wildfire back from HTC. It works fine, and has Froyo update. The curious thing is that the repair ticket that came back with it said that there was no fault.

All I have to do now is reload my contacts, pictures, music and settings, and reinstall all the apps. Easy enough, just a bit of a bore.

Thankyou HTC, but there realy was a fault. I just hope it isn't a sign of things to come.

So that ends my little tale. I'm back in the land of the living and happy again ;)
