Excerpt: Hat this phone because it's full of BLOATWARE. I've nothing against HTC Installing a few custom UIs and things because some people might prefer them but YOU CANNOT UNINSTALL IT. And it's not just one or 2 apps , there's absolutely loads of rubbish preinstalled that I don't use and just sits there using up memory, battery, data, etc. And for the techy's out there - it's REALLY difficult to root. Will not be buying HTC again.
Pros: hardware's generally well built (apart from aeriel), good camera
Cons: Bloatware, Lots of pre-installed apps you can't remove, aerial's not very good, signal's bad, almost impossible to root
Pros: The windshield wiper that displays when it is raining...that's it!

Just a few of the bugs in this dumbphone. The only option provided was a new (same) HTC phone. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PHONE!!!

Summary: I had an HTC Desire before this Incredible S and was very happy. This one however has technical issues. After MANY hours talking to O2 and HTC the upshot is there is a known issue with the interaction between the HTC Incredible S and the O2 3G network which HTC is taking their time fixing and O2 denies completely:- - Even with good signal calls often go straight to voicemail - If your phone loses connection it often will not re-acquire a connection unless you cycle power...
