How to Find a MAC Address on HTC Desire

By William Pullman

Like computers and any other devices that can connect to a network, the HTC Desire has a unique number encoded into its Wi-Fi adapter, known as a Media Access Control, or MAC, address. Depending on your router settings, you may need this number in order to grant your phone access to a network. You can find the MAC address on any HTC Desire by looking at its Hardware Information screen.

Step 1

Press the "Home" button, which is the button on the bottom of the phone with a picture of a house on it, to access the HTC Desire home screen.

Step 2

Push the "Menu" button, which is located on the bottom of the phone to the right of the "Home" button.

Step 3

Touch "Settings" and then "About Phone."

Step 4

Tap "Hardware Information" to view the MAC address on your HTC Desire.
