The HTC Tattoo has plenty of ways to get you on to the internet, utilising both HSDPA and Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity.


We couldn't fault the speed of the web access swapping from 3G to Wi-Fi is as simple as flicking a switch. Although the phone doesn't automatically sync when Wi-Fi is in range just go into Wireless Controls and tick the relevant boxes to make this so.

The same goes for Bluetooth as well. If you don't want to go through the menus, there is a free download from Market to put this option straight on to one of you home screens.

And to make things that little bit easier, you can also wade through the options and connect to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.

We wish it could be this easy to connect the phone to your PC. Unlike the HTC Magic, there is no software inside the box. Instead the phone asks you to download the software from HTC's website. This kept us waiting and waiting, to no avail. We eventually got the software up and running but it was all a bit of a 'mare.


An easier way we found to set the phone up was to go to Data Synchronisation and choose from Google, Exchange ActiveSync or PC – depending on which data you want to synch with the phone. This seemed to be an easier way to connect your phone up to your computer.

An easy way to add music and movies to the phone was, once connected to the PC, choose the Disk Drive option. This gives you free reign to drag and drop files into the phone.
