Important Note:Some HTC TyTN devices have a screen alignment problem. HTC will not replace it after two weeks, you can only get it repaired. So push it hard and make it hot on your first week after buying it to see if the screen alignment problem appears on your device, otherwise the screen alignment problem may appear later and your device will not be replaced, only repaired as per HTC DOA. If you are thinking of buying an HTC TyTN, make sure you get an HTC636 or higher serrial number. Avoid S/N HTC62XXX and HTC63[1-5]XXX
However, it should be noted that some people have devices through various network providers whose serial numbers fall into this "avoid" range, which work fine but aesthetically look slightly different (in this editor's case, his replacement device is an HT634 from T-Mobile UK, and the metallic bezel around the right-hand side of the screen is ever so slightly recessed into the case, as opposed to his first model, where the metal bezel was flush with the plastic casing either side of it). His first model developed the alignment fault the day it was due to be replaced, and the replacement has been fine ever since (several months ago). Your mileage may vary with this issue, but it is advised to seek the higher model numbers which should be fairly easy to do now they are in wider circulation.
