    What screen protection are people using, cant seem to find any good thoughts/reviews on screen protecters or cases.

    New update is starting to hit Europe model unbranded handsets. Doesn't seem to be here in the UK yet, but it'll come soon enough. New radio version, the infamous battery .apk is gone, quicker performance, force GPU rendering works... a few nice bits reported.

    This one had some really good reviews from the guys on XDA, I've ordered one but still waiting on delivery, should take about 7 days to arrive.

    I have a VF branded HTC One X; hopefully not too long before they roll out the update when it becomes available in the UK....

    I've upgraded from a Desire HD and as Rob M states in standby and talking the battery life is superb, if you're playing any graphically intensive gaming such as Riptide GP or ShadowGun then the battery takes a hit...

    Also some apps still have not been optimised for the OS / handset as yet; Stair Dismount and Draw Free

    Seems as of last night there is a new update for the HOX 1.29.401.7 its 35mb in total not been released what this does but is available to unlocked devices at the moment. Three customers can get the 1.28 update which fixes the battery problem so would imagine a couple of weeks before 1.29 is available for everyone. Let us know if you do update to this what improvements you get.

    Unless HTC have moved it the IMEI should be found ->
    Settings>About Phone>Status

    Or dial *#06#

    To get rid of the splash screen I'm pretty sure you'll need to install a custom/stock ROM which would mean rooting.

    You need to be somewhat technical to be able to do it but all the information is on here.

    HTC One X - xda-developers

    I had a 3 branded phone and followed instructions, now running a custom ROM called Android Revolution HD.

    Hi there. I'm new to the forum so be gentle with me!!!
    I'm a UK Tmobile customer due for upgrade, so I want to upgrade from my old HTC Desire to the new HTC One X.
    Phoned Tmobile today, and they are currently 'out of stock' of the One X. They said to me that they have been out of stock for nearly 3 weeks and they don't know when they are getting them back in stock!!
    has anyone else experienced this??

    Just go into a Carphone Warehouse and do the upgrade there... they're more likely to have stock and your phone will be unlocked and unbranded

    Don't think I can, as i'm a Tmobile diect customer, so I can only do it directly through them. Thats what I'm led to believe!

    Not sure what a direct customer is... but I've never heard of only being able to upgrade through the network operator

    My wifes the account holder with two phones/numbers, mine and hers.
    She originally purchased her contract/phone with Tmobile direct online, not a 3rd party i.e Carphone Warehouse/Phones 4 U, then added my number/handset later on.
    She has only ever dealt with Tmobile directly regarding upgrades etc. This is why she thinks we can't do it through a 3rd party!

    I have two questions as I intend to upgrade to the One X.

    The comments about screen flicker are worrying me.
    These issues always seem worse on forums because those affected will understandably want to vent. But are the majority of people on here noticing it?

    Second question. With the gorrila glass and dense Polycarbonate body, are current owners still confident about keeping it with no case and screen protector. I am OCD about such things, my 2 year old HTC desire still looks factory fresh.

    No flickering screen on mine. Had it about 3 weeks now.

    I'm pretty OCD with my phones. Whether you put it in a case with a screen cover is obviously your choice. Mine is.

    Yeah I like the look of it but the price (and postage!) puts me off. Plus, knowing me, I'll **** it up and my money'll be down the drain!

    I bought a screen protector from amazon that arrived today, it was a Martin fields, cost £12. Useless, my partner tried to fit it but seems to have no stickiness to it so being returned.

    In the end went CPW and bought the HTC screen prorectors which seem quite good and fitted no problem.

    Also bought a case from Vodaphone, U Unique i think its called, its a slim rubber feel but fairly solid case, nice dark red colour as well.

    I have a couple of spare protectors if anyone wants one? (over 100 posts!) I got 10 for 2 quid. They don't fit all the way to the sides but you can't notice when its on.

    You are quite welcome to one mate, especially as you are such a distinguished member! Pm me your addy and I'll stick one in the post. Went on really easily with only a small bubble at the bottom. I'll take some to work in case there are any more takers. :)
