Ergh my bad. I didn't read that properly and thought you meant it would drop down to 3G from H and not go back.

Ignore me

wlfkfgkwlaktka: Hi,

Anyone on 2degrees having a problem with 3g network?
Once it loses 3g, it falls back to 2g then it never comes back to 3g (i.e. hangs on 2g no matter where you are) unless you turn airplane mode on and off.
Anyone having a similar problem? Not too sure if it's the bug in the OS or the handset problem.


I've had that on Vodafone, doesn't bother me to cycle airplane mode.


Must be the bug in the OS then.
It bothers me a lot because my work place has a low reception so it falls back to 2g network everytime I go to work and never catches 3g from then.
Hopefully, this will be solved in 4.2.2 otherwise I have no choice but to return it!

If you set it to 3G only does it not fix the problem?

Yea it does. But I am afraid the same problem will occur when I change my plan to LTE.
As you know, there is no LTE only option.
Hopefully by then, this "bug" will have got fixed.

I am no longer getting the vibration feedback when pressing the back or home button. I have checked and it is ticked in the sound options of the menu.

Hardware fault?

Have you got the battery saving mode on? If so, that could be the cause of the problem? Try switching off the battery saving mode off and see.

wlfkfgkwlaktka: It seems like retailers are no longer willing to exchange the device for gap issues.
When I bought the One a month ago, I found some gaps on the top, and demanded a new one on the spot which they happily provided.
But yesterday when my friend bought it from JB-Hifi, we asked for a new one, again due to gap issues, and they simply said they need to send it to HTC to verify whether it's a faulty one or not. They tried their usual BS as to how it is a part of the design.  
Said it would take at least 2-3 weeks until they hear back from HTC. 
We argued for a bit and at the end, got a refund (within 48 hour rule). 

Needless to say, my mate went straight for GS4.
HTC really needs to improve their QA. It's been months since the launch, and their excuse for "first batch problems" doesn't work any more.


Based on the above, my brother is quite luck then. He picked one up from NL Sylvia Park last weekend, just opened the packaging in the last couple days and found the gap issue so he took it back and got another one and found another issue near the micro USB port at the bottom and he took it back and got S4 instead.

Out of curiosity, is there anyway to identify if the HTC One is a XT or Vodafone variant (through IMEI, Serial Number, P/N or anything else)?

How does one stop apps from automatically updating.  I have one app that the updated version isn't as good as the old version. I've uninstalled it only to have it reinstall automatically as an update.  Most frustrating.

There is no difference between the XT or the Vodafone version in the HTC One's sold in NZ, they are exactly the same.

I wonder how Vodafone justify selling this for $100.00 extra.

Is this confirmed though, although I can see LTE option on my Telecom HTC One (Im with Vodafone carier), but I cant actually test if LTE truly works? 

I guess I may know soon when Vodafone releases LTE in CHCH

Been playing with settings to try get better battery life, since leaving it all default means I can't even get through 12 hours off the charge...

Haven't run anything through proper timed tests but been keeping an eye on screen time and time off charge etc. So far it seems that turning off wifi doesn't make a significant enough difference to be worth it, but the power saver mode is helping a fair bit, maybe 20-25% better.

Next I'll play around with network modes but before I bother does anyone know if its worth setting it to one network mode only (Live in Auckland and am on Vodafone so reception should mostly be fine on the faster one). I'm not on an LTE plan so I can have it on GSM or WCDMA only if I want to. I'm not a fan of stabbing myself in the eye with a rusty fork so I'd be going for WCDMA for sure - just wondering if it will actually save battery, or will it waste more searching and trying to reconnect when i dip into low reception rather than just flicking to GSM.

Have confirmed LTE works on the Telecom phone with an LTE Sim.

The VF and Telecom variants are identical. Digging around in the firmware files says the same thing.
