    I was interested in buying the htc desire 601 for virgin mobile. But I am confused . Can you explain the reason htc used an embedded, non-removal battery in the virgin mobile version of this phone, but not in the original htc desire? Does this ruin the phone? What if the batttery stops charging? What if the phone freezes and the battery can’t be removed? Any information you can provide would be apreciated. Thank you. P.S. I hope this isn’t a stupid question, I am pretty new to the world of android smartphones.

    Very much confused :/ two days ago, HTC updates page on their website listed the Boost Mobile HTC One SV for a 4.4 Update. Decided to check again today and now its taken off the list and now its saying it will get a 4.2.2 update ! But then again the Virgin Mobile Desire is still listed on the list for HTC phones scheduled for a Kit Kat Update ! Can Someone Please Explain??? Thanks

      You and others need to write HTC about the SV their trying to leave the phone in the dust like it’s not a high performance phone they need to know that the SV deserves the 4.4 update since it was barely released last year it shouldn’t be treated like this.

      I tweeted HTC about the HTC one sv and the said it would not be receivingany future updates, I am totally disgusted by this.

    There was a website error, it may say now that Boost will give out the 4.2.2 Jellybean update, but that’s not true at all. I received word from HTC USA that the HTC One SV for Boost Mobile will indeed receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update around April :-).

      I would like to see a screenshot or some form of proof or for right now I’m sticking with the jelly bean update.
