    • Andy says

      easy done my friend. Go onto the internet via your wildfire Google your required pdf. Thats one of the beauties of this smartfone – Dead easy.
      Once its downloaded your pdf it will inform of such………Bingo. BTW, you are really best reading the pdf via your desktop, laptop,notepad etc, simply due to the size limitation of the screen on the HTC.
      Good luck with it anyway.

  6. JD says

    My new HTC Wildfire S does not have the icons/options to differentiate Home, Work, Pager, Fax etc. when storing/saving new contacts numbers. It only shows ‘M’ may be for Mobile for only the first number stored/saved. Pls help…

    • john says

      I have the same problem with the Learn More option which is all in Spanish.
      I went back to the Orange shop and was told they couldn’t do anything about it but that the problem was known to HTC who would be sorting it out asap – very unsatisfactory.

      • Andy says

        Press the top button, bringing your phone to life. Go to settings and activate it (press the damn thing). Go to Wireless and Networks, give it a quick press. Now scroll up the screen a touch until you come across Mobile network. activate the wee tick with a gentle touch of the preceding text. You should now be in business. What I do is activate it when necessary as it has a tendency to munch away @ your psu (battery), not as heavily as WiFi, but still a noticeable amount. I guess you can make a link/shortcut to it to make activating/DE-activating even easier. Tired, lazy bunch of sods we are lol lol.
        Hope this helps sweetheart 😉

  17. Ikima says

    I have had nothing but trouble since I have had the HTC wildfire s. The store where I purchased the phone has had to reorder me a new one and I had it less than a month. I think it is safe to say they did not test their product before putting it out there, maybe under pressure to keep up with growing market.
