Thanks jan, nice to see a reply
And I totally agree with you, but the "GENIUSES" over here decided on (and look at that):
+961 a 123456 or 0a 123456 (landlines)
+961 3 123456 or 03 123456 (original GSM lines)
+961 70 123456 or 70 123456 (newer GSM lines)
+961 71 123456 or 71 123456 (newer GSM lines)
… I mean people can’t get this straight how about phones (granted, some phones might be more “aware” than some people, but who am I to say
The problem has been around for a long time (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=606728
just one post of the MANY I’ve looked at), and we never got an answer.
I even emailed HTC for months on end about this, and never got a half-way decent reply! And I have been a loyal HTC customer for a long time: HTC P3300 (the first HTC, I think), Touch Diamond, TyTN, TyTN 2, Desire, HD2, Sensation
So I was really expecting a bit more from them, especially if the answer is as easy as I mentioned;
they’re statements “your s/n is for an HTC Hero” (hello! I'm sorry, the phone looks like the Desire, has the right software,firmware, th box says Desire, the phone says Desire etc.etc.)
“to edit the registry as it is considered illegal” (again hello! there is no registry in Android)
All this wasn’t really productive. One support tech (after being bounced back and forth) was actually trying to help, but eventually I just gave up.
After getting the HTC Sensation, I started rooting the Desire, and guess what, it just took the “ro.phone.min_match=7” to fix it. This could have been done even without rooting.
AND GUESS WHERE I GOT THE “ro.phone.min_match=7” FROM?? ... the HTC Sensation !!!!!
