I hope that I'm not the only one going to gripe about the wildfire.
I would like to know if this is just me... (Maybe). I am hoping that someone will agree.
I brought the wildfire due to the reading on the HTC site and the hype that everyone seems to be giving it... Well I got 2 on contract from Vodafone. What a painful processor...
So here is what I found so far, please either agree or disagree. Just want to make sure that I'm not the only one...
Phone rings, I get it out of the case and the screen seems to lock up! I drag down and drag down and drag down, but yet phone still rings. Then I miss the call and I call them back (thank god for free minutes). I downloaded a CPU monitoring tool, and called my phone, and yes CPU is at 100% Why?
Apps are very limited (I found) updates for the wildfire seems to be always the last ones to get the latest.
And also when I am on "G" network unless i get 4 bars of signal internet fails 9 times out of 10, i know it's the phone as I borrowed my friends DESIRE and I can walk into shops while using the bar code readers that works fine, the wildfire seems to loose all signal as soon as you walk in the door.
I know I seem to be given the wildfire a bit of grief, but for all the hype on this phone, I suppose I was expecting something really good. Don't get me wrong the phone to a degree is ok, but I have issues.
With all of the above I used my wife’s phone to see if I had the problem with just mine, but my wife’s is just the same. I am really quiet disappointed with it.
I think the main trouble is that I am not really happy with it. The last useful App I downloaded was myplayer, that again if you don’t get full 4 bars on "G" then it is unusable.
I feel the idea is there, but the poor phone just can't handle any extra work.
Has anyone had any issues? The same problem? or has found a solution?

very disappointed with the wildfire. i too have experienced the screen lock up when receiving a call - my solution was to press the power button which seems to bring the screen to life. try that

My Wildfire S bought 6 weeks ago is totally unsatisfactory. Phone service signal/ reception worse than my 6 year old Sony Ericsson and phone will not connect to open WiFi networks. I have had various discussions with Vodaphone support staff,tried various procedures, changed the SIM and had the phone reprogrammed all to no avail. Phone now on way back to Vodaphone.
