I have owned an HTC Desire for nearly a year now. It came with android 2.1 and was upgraded to 2.2 when released. For the first month the Internet browser worked fine. It then suddenly stopped connecting to the internet unless a wireless connection was used. I was hoping the upgrade to android 2.2. might have fixed the problem, but it didn't. As a work around I have installed Opera Mini and use that when I do not have a wireless connection. To be frank, Opera Mini is not good at formatting web pages and I would really like to get the built in browser working properly. Anyone got any ideas?
Have you looked at the system logs when trying to connect to the Internet over the cellular connection? You can either use one of the "logcat" applications in the Market, or else connect the phone to the computer and use ADB (from the Android SDK) to read the logs directly from the phone.
In either event, with the logs in hand you should at least get a clue as to what is going on. I would say that somehow you turned off "Mobile Data" in the Android settings, but since Opera works we have to conclude that the issue isn't system wide.
