    I have just received my HTC Wildfire from 3 however I can’t get the battery to power up.

    I received a three point plug with an adaptor (thing) on its back. I received only two leads, one is the headset and plugs into the mobile. The only other ‘hole’ on the mobile allows a plug to be fitted into it and at the other end of that lead there is a plug wich fits into the back of the aforementioned plug with an adaptor on its back. In other words it does looks as if I’m doing everything right and my mobile should be powering up, but it’s not, why would this be?


    Yours sincerely

    I had same trouble since I got it.Make sure that plug thinghy is at 180 degrees when switched on. find that it takes so long to text and make a call that I feel it will go back to T Mobile. This fone is geared for the younger market
