    DO NOT install the HTC Sync 3.0 software for the Wildfire. Firstly, it is very hit and miss whether your computer will detect the phone despite following all the instructions. My phone had problems installing the Sync driver onto the phone itself.

    I didn't believe the software is as bad as people have made out on support forums, but it really is atrocious. When my phone is (rarely) detected, it can take over a minute from selecting "HTC SYNC" on my phone to actually entering the application.

    It is quicker and easier to simply transfer items onto and off the microsd memory card through "removable disk" mode.

      I also think it is a piece of you know what. No matter what you do including de-installing and re-installing it absolutely will not see the phone and vice versa. I am using XP Sp3. I have never had the phone see the computer and vice versa. I'd be interested if anyone knows why and how to fix it!

    Wildfire Sync does not work well, does not include Outlook Tasks. Decided to to return phone as crucial to sync Outlook for critical business purpose. Gone back to Win Smartphone. Slower but it works !!

    Slow and unreliable Suspicious that some data has been lost from outlook and had to re-enter manually. Can't see a way of updating outlook from data entered on phone . Does run faster if I turn off sync for everything except outlook. Also seems to duplicate then link some people with same identical name.
    Looking for something better than HTC sync that performs as well if not better than MS Activesync that I used on my old pda.

    Syncing with Outlook. The syncing is unacceptable slow. I cannot access anymore Calendar and People sync options (on / off). It does not sync Tasks and Notes. (in combination with the very poor battery performance the Wildfire is useless as business phone. Want to go back to Nokia E series

    Horribly slow to find phone, then you have to manually select each to category to sync. Sync contacts, done. Then click sync calendar, done. Then click sync documents, done. Then click sync media, done. WTF?!
    Why not let us check or uncheck each category, the sync all them at once?
    And it doesn't offer what 2.0 version did, which is letting us chose to automatically sync each time we're connected.
    It's pretty, but useless; the thing almost looks like it was designed by some malware team.

    Again i have tried all solutions that people have suggested on these forums and still nothing,
    i have never experianced such problems with any other phone software and id think htc need to come up with something a lot better. so pissed off because i thought this was going to be a decent phone but if you read this dont bother buying.

    I have all the same problems. The phone doesn't recognise the PC and vice-verse even though its all installed correctly and plugged in. Have tried all obvious solutions like firewall and anti virus disablement, un-installing and re-installing etc but nothing works. Have had three people take a look at this and the only solution is to return the phone or put up with no sync.
    would not recommend to anyone who wants a "smart phone"

    It worked…

    Dear All, I bought new Wildfire and tried to connect to PC using HTC Sync. Nothing worked initially. When I searched, I got stuck in this forum. But I found another one xperiaandroid.com/download-htc-sync-for-htc-wildfire.html (add http in front of the above url)

    The step is explained there. Follow the instructions and it worked. I had 220 contacts and got transferred in 2 minutes from PC. It is true that the CPU was used 100% for 20+ seconds, but the PC didn't hang up.

    How in the world can a company being out a sync software that does not work. Someone need to stack the blood developers because they know nothing. I have tried on a xp pc and win7 pc no joy with software seeing the hardware. Calling all OpenSource Developers can you fix the bugs or comeup with a program that works?

    it won't sync from phone to computer. it will quite happily do it the other way round, but if you're out and about and put it on the phone, it won't transfer across!! dumb thing.

    in regards to finding the phone from the computer, the biggest culprit was fujifilm finepix which took control as it read "photos, wahey". when i figured this out, it now works beautifully. (apart from above.) i had a friend with the same issue and did as i suggested and it worked fine for him. NOT htc to blame (this time.) 🙂

    HTC Synce is the biggest pile of dog droppings it has ever been my displeasure to use 🙁 I have had my Wildfire for 5 months now and can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I have managed to sync it without somekind of problems. Even when the software realises that there is a phone attached it is more likely to give up syncing half-way thru…at least when I sync my iPod to iTunes I know it is going to work. So when my contract is up, its iPhone for me

    Cannot manage to connect for sync purposes to my laptop. Hit and miss. Sometimes it works to reboot laptop but for the rest it just doesn’t pick up the software on the computer. If it doesn’t improve or is rectified by updated software or drivers then the sync solution is actually useless and the phone becomes a toy rather than a tool.

    I just bought a brand new Wildfire S, but the HTC Sync on it doesn’t work. I don’t get a “device setup screen” or a “device panel”, so I can’t sync anything. If anyone can tell me why this is happening I’d be very grateful. Thanks.

    Sync doesn’t work, I connected my Phone to my PC and when I opened my HTC sync it said ‘Please connect your device’ But I already had done that and it had a Red x on the Sync, any one else got the same problem?
