T-Mobile's HTC One S hit with battery drain issue while using Wi-Fi calling; software fix is coming
will be addressed in an upcoming software update," although no specific date for the update was mentioned. Calling over Wi-Fi is a feature that could save you the money that you would have had to pay from going over the voice cap on your plan. Having it drain your battery, on the other hand, is not exactly what HTC One S users had in mind when they bought the device. Until the software update is released, following T-Mobile's advice and keeping the phone plugged in while you use the Wi-Fi calling feature should help prevent you from walking around with a dead battery in your HTC One S.

Not surprising. I have had nothing but problems with Tmobile HTC phones. They have been a train wreck for me. Nothing new at all

Checked it at tmo store yesterday. Nothing special here folks. Bland experience! If its the lesser of the two, a company like tmo will take it. Epic fail!

I tried it today. You are wrong. Gorgeous phone. Absolutely loved everything about it.

I don't think so. Put it next to the GS2 and you'll know which one is gorgeous. The aluminum unibody feels great but the overall design doesn't do it any justice and the color and feel is just lifeless. Not a good phone as compared to maybe its big brother, the One X.

I had my GS2 in the other hand at the time.
