Krishant007: it normally takes about 3-4 alarms for me to fully get up...but yesterday morning...One alarm was enough... (see what i did there)


Ah .... nope?


Its a pun I believe, playing on the fact that he usually uses multiple alarms to wake himself up, whereas with the One he only needs "One".

(Hope you werent joking, or hope you were joking. Hard to determine sarcasm over text)


And yes we have a winner! But ya, the alarms are so loud that I literally woke up on the first one that rang

Very Good - I like that. I was all in the capital 'O' and I missed it.

Since having 2 dead pixels on a <48 hour old phone is not a good enough reason for replacement on the spot, I just had another chat with Telecom online. Apparently NONE of them have heard of the gap issue (she "checked with her colleagues").. given my past experiences with the local Telecom store I'm sure they will try to fob me off.

Exactly on what grounds are people returning their phones and receiving a replacement??

Regarding the gap issues... Most people seem to be talking about a tiny tiny gap at the top of the phone between the white plastic and the silver speaker piece. While I've seen a couple where there's a fairly ugly looking gap (like the display model in JBHIFI St Lukes), most of the pics users have submitted look very very insignificant.

The following is from http://www.reddit.com/r/htcone/comments/1eclj5/hello_reddit_i_will_be_answering_your_questions/
Where an HTC One rep answers questions about the device.

Myth/Question #4: My device was advertised as a “Zero Gap Construction” phone. When I look at the speaker grills I can see slight raising between the speaker grill an screen. Is this a warranty issue or something I should send in for repair?

A: Your device is likely within specification. The front speaker grills are cosmetic and not part of the “zero gap construction.” A hairline space between speaker grill and frame will have no impact on performance.

Our “Zero gap construction” references to our refined design to create a seamless body of the device which does not include the speaker grills. You could see the in depth design concept in our YouTube channel, “Behind the breakthrough --Building the HTC One.” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGfULb1ZKBo)

Im doing the set up on my pc, I can either select HTC One from Telecom NZ or just HTC One. My One has no Telecom software nor splash screen, but I got given a Telecom Sim + $50 credit. Which one do I select? Just the plain HTC One?

Probably doesn't matter.

Although pick Telecom to be safe.

Very impressed with the battery life of this phone! I'm currently on 12% left, and have been on battery for 24 hours and 15 minutes! In that time I've had 3G/4G or Wifi on for the majority of the time (excluding when I'm sleeping). I've used pretty much every aspect of my phone in that time, txts, emails, gallery, camera, internet, youtube...

Hello,

Anyone experiencing problems with 3g? My phone stays on Edge (2g) and never move up to H+.
I live in the city area so the coverage should be pretty good.
I am with 2degrees.
Anyone experiencing similar problem?

Check your network mode settings. Also, do you have data roaming turned on? I know that in order to switch between 2degrees and Vodafone network coverage, roaming needs to be on.

Yea my network mode is set to GSM/WCDMA/LTE auto.
Will see how data roaming will help.

quick question... where do you access network settings. I thought it used to be under: Settings->More (under Wireless & Networks). But there is no option for network settings there.

Tap "Mobile Data" to open the Mobile Network Settings.

I am now a new owner of HTC One, arrived this morning ordered from the Warehouse Red Alert deal on Tuesday. It says 7-10 working days delivery, pretty impressed and surprised to get it this quickly.

I am quite lucky, no gaps or construction issues on the phone.

I am on Vodafone so probably will wait until October for Telecom to release update to enable LTE or look at flashing custom ROMs to enable it somehow....

Oh and I am moving from S3. S4 is just too similar to S3, too plasticy for my liking.

Will miss the expandable microSD card slot and removable battery though.

Anyone know what the process for a factory reset it?
I want to get the phone back to the setup page and wipe all the data and installed apps.
