Htc desire s-select network

When you turn on the phone, it automatically selects a network within range.

In certain circumstances, it might be useful to select a network manually, for example when you are abroad where different networks are available (depending on which operators Orange or T-Mobile have roaming agreements with).

Select network manually

Follow these instructions to select a network manually.

1. Find Search networks

  • Press the menu icon

  • Press Mobile networks
  • Press Network operators
  • Press Search networks


2. Search for networks

  • After a moment the phone searches for networks within range

Please note: Please note that when you activate manual network selection, this setting is activated until automatic network selection is reactivated. If you are out of range of the selected network, the phone will not work.

3. Select network

  • A list of networks within range is displayed
  • Press the required network
  • After a moment the display shows whether you have access to the selected network. If the display shows that you do not have access to the selected network, it is because Orange or T-Mobile do not have a roaming agreement with the network operator
