I have the One V on Virgin Mobile and I've been stricken with a "Loading" prompt every time I go to my homepage. The only things that are constantly running is the LookOut security. Why does my phone load? Other than this frustrating problem it's a really nice solid phone. 😢

question number 2 for Rich

So is this phone NOT going to Metro PCS?
I believe it is coming to Metro. That's what HTC told us in February.

MetroPCS was also listed in the HTC One series press release, and I'm 99% sure they aren't getting the One X or One S.
I asked Metro corporate reps about this last night, and - while they were vague - I got the impression that this specific model isn't coming to Metro. Rather, some variant or successor is coming to Metro at a later date, possibly early next year.

I made the mistake--

--of purchasing the LG Optimus Elite...just before the One V got to market. I would have gladly paid the extra $50 for the V.

Why is the ESN

printed on the back?
Or is it because it's a review model?
There's ne place to put the sticker inside the phone. The One X and One S ship the same way. You can remove the sticker from the phone if you want to, and HTC includes an extra one in the box in case you need it down the road. I just didn't peel the s...
Moto Razr ships the same way.
Because the battery is embedded. There is a back cover, but it's probably too small for the ESN and everything else.

The sticker makes it easy for a retail employee to activate the phone when selling one.

This may be too specific of a question,

but I've been considering this phone lately (through US Cellular actually) and currently have a Desire (which from my understanding is extremely close in hardware to the original nexus) which I'm looking to get rid of due to general performance issues and a poor battery life.

From my understanding the S2 processor would definitely be a step up for both performance and battery life compare to the S1 in the Desire, but would you consider the difference between the phones to be enough to warrant an upgrade?
The upgrade in the system software alone would be worth it. The S2 definitely outperforms the S1, though not dramatically. One V also has better display, better camera, and Android 4.0/Sense 4.0.

Question for Rich:

Your preview mentioned the processor is dual-core, but the stats page indicates just a standard 1 ghz.

Which is it?!
It is a 1GHz Single Core S4 Snapdragon. Although it is only Single Core...it is still a surprisingly quick phone.

As for your 2nd question, Metro PCS MIGHT get this device later this summer but there is no confirmation on that yet!

Hope this hel...
It's single-core. Sorry for the confusion!
