htc_touch_pro_bugsMy HTC Touch Pro has started tearing on my patience. I’ve had this phone since early February and I have experienced too many issues/bugs for this period. This is very sad because I really like the phone; the look, the feel, functionality and usability. But simple software bugs/issues makes this phone hard to like.

I was very positive when I found that they had released a firmware update (earlier post about updating HTC Touch Pro firmware) and I thought that this would solve my issues. It did but… it also introduced new issues :(

I’m now running on the latest firmware (at least the latest that I have found on the official HTC support pages). Below I list the issues I find very irritating now:

  • The key lock doesn’t work anymore. When I press the “hangup” soft key for a while the screen just blinks and is back to normal. Before the firmware update this would enable the key lock/screen lock.
  • The new sliding functionality for reacting on incoming calls are also nice but some times it is impossible to actually slide it to the left or right (resulting in unanswered calls).
  • The white light flashing once in a while to indicate new actions that you need to respond to is flashing even if I have no new SMS or unanswered calls.
  • When I have started writing a SMS and decides to slide out the keyboard the SMS is often lost and the main menu is displayed.

Sorry for complaining but I just needed to get this out. I really hope that HTC will be able to release a new firmware update without all these obvious bugs very soon.

As said earlier I like this phone so I will give HTC a chance to fix these bugs/issues before I throw it away and change to another brand. So HTC please fix these bugs and make my day a whole lot better :)

Is it just me or have any of you experienced annoying software bugs on your HTC devices?

  2. Hi, what ROM version are you using? I checked the official HTC page and found that a new ROM version were released 30th August. I have not tried this version, so I will try to update to it later today. Maybe it solves all our problems?
