The Desire was having hardware button issues. Hence the upgrade to the G300.




Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005
ROM: Stock Telecom release 4.4.2

If you can't fix it with a Big Hammer, chances are you've got an electrical problem!

BigHammer: After a bit of difficult negotiation (with the better half), I've just picked up another G300 at $239 to replace my old HTC Desire that the wife has been using. Been having a bit of grief with buttons not responding when pressed. (And no, I don't just mean the phone!)


Hmm I'm having no issues with mine.  Has it been updated to ICS 4.0.3?


Yep thats a known issue with older firmware and will be fixed with the later Gingerbread firmware and Ice Cream Sandwich




Current Devices: HTC One
Old Devices: SGS I9000, HTC Sensation, SGSII I9100, Asus Transformer, Samsung Galaxy S3

I just picked up one of these, upgraded to ICS using the phone's built in update function without any problems. Amazing phone for the price.
