How is the durability of the screen? If i use it with sweaty/wet hands will it break? Plz smone rely,i'm yet to buy the HD2.
[deleted post]Just for your knowledge...
You don’t have to have a HTC center in your country to get your phone fixed. It is covered by an international warranty. All you need is a credit card that can do international transactions, and your bill for buying the phone (I hope you got it from a reputable store or web site) then you go to the HTC web site closes to your country and get the # for the service & Repair department. If they think your phone does need to come in for repairs they will give you a RMA # and you just have to ship it to them with FedEx.
Let FedEx know it is going for repairs so they will do up the customs forms so you will not have to pay tax when it comes back.

You had that internal memory so disorganised, I recommend that you do a hard reset a.k.a factory reset and start from scratch. Sync your info with “My Phone” if you can and just start over. This time install your programs on the SD card and change the setting of your programs to save files to the sd card.
Set your email attachments to go to the sd card. By the way, what is your ROM version?
There are some default files you can delete to have more free space but that depends on the ROM you are running. After you finish set back up your phone, you what to have more than 51.2mb of free space on internal storage. That is 10% of the ROM on a T8585 HD2

Thanks Anthony, the used... moreHi Anthony again, i reduced the size as u advised, and it worked good for one day only and now almost all day it was freezed, it doesnt work anymore like really dead screen only keys are working. I really love my phone and there is no HTC center in where i live, do u think i should give up on this?
Well I hacked my phone to load cust ROM's again... It took me a min, but it went smooth though... I loaded Omega Rom v14 CHT with the new radio 2.14.50... Everything seems to be working fine so far... Really wanted to load Omega Dinik v14, but it's not available yet... Will cust Rom later today??? Or a may wait til the Dinik Rom is available so I can see which I like... Don't want to flash my phone alot... Want to find a ROM that works and stick with it... Then I can cust it with Andriod... I want re-flash unless something happens... I know what apps I will install... Want load phone with a ton of apps like before (only the ones I use on a daily basis)... I want the ROM to be light and fast (no none sense apps this go around).....
I may try Omega Dinik v13... Has anyone loaded this on there HD2????? If so... How is it???????
Anthony, 25 Sep 2010Nice to hear that they changed the entire button bar instead of trying to do a wack patch job.... moreI'm going to wait and see... It seems to be working great now... It work fine before (only problem was not able to power off)... I would like to get the ATT 3G model (Tel), but that model is still high ($650 to $879)... I could only get around $450 to $500 for mines... Some HD2's are selling for around $375.... Don't want to pay anymore additional money for a HD2...
Will see what phones come out for WP7 and Android in the next few months... Then will decide what my next phone will be (as I said in other posts my next phone has to have certain updates, and it will be US 3G bands...)... I good with the HD2 for now... Will load Desire HD Sense on it when it's ready for everyday use, and most things are working... You can still do way more with the HD2 than any phone out right now... Hopefully we can try WP7 on the HD2 when released next month...
Now I need to HPSL my phone to load cust ROM.. I've been using the OMEGA ROM for the last few months... It's a very, very nice and stable ROM... Also you get around 200MB of storage after flash to work with.......
High Tech, 25 Sep 2010Well Fedex just dropped off my phone... Guess what???? They changed my keys.. Now I have the T... moreNice to hear that they changed the entire button bar instead of trying to do a wack patch job.
It makes sense that you would get the tmobile keys because HTC USA would not stock the international parts as that version never came to the USA.
So are you going to keep the phone or sell?
Well Fedex just dropped off my phone... Guess what???? They changed my keys.. Now I have the TMO keys at the bottom ((Green phone button and the red power off button)... They did change all the bottom buttons... But it looks like they did fix the power off problem. It also no longer powers on when you insert the battery. I now can select power off from the quicklist and the phone now powers off without coming back on.... Looks like they finally fixed it. At least those issues. Have to set it up the phone later tonight???
What HTC repair changed:
-Bottom buttons. Now TMO look...
-ROM version now 1.66.76641. My old ROM was v1.43....
Abeel, 24 Sep 2010Hi, Iwould like to know the update that you mentioned is it refer to " New SMS Function U... moreNo!
The update I was talking about was the ROM update. If your ROM is 1.66 or newer you would not even need the “New SMS function Update” you can see your ROM version by going to.... settings>about phone>software information
e.g. this is my ROM # (1.66.405.2) 1.66 is the version .405. Is the region/provider code.
So when you read your ROM number, if it is older than 1.66 you need to update. Then you have to go look for a newer rom version (1.66 or newer) that has the same region/provider code as your phone.
Doing this kind of upgrade is not a Hack and will not break your warranty.
Any ROM older than 1.66 has more than 1 BUG in the sms.
1. Sometimes your sms sticks in the outbox and it does not tell you it did not go. And when it sticks all sms after that gets stuck. Till you restart.
2. It has to load all the sms from the contact you are viewing before you can create a sms of your own.
3. When a contact start to get allot of sms, some or all can start to disappear from the chat window.
4. It does not give you a message count for your contacts.
If you are having any of those problems you have an OLD ROM THAT NEEDS TO BE UPDATED.
If you do have 1.66 or newer there are other updates that are on the HTC site for other things. You just have to look at what ROM version they were made to fix a problem in.
I was telling sally a common reason any window mobile phone freezes is because there is not enough free space on internal memory for the OS to make swap files which it need to function. And sally confirmed that she only left 12.03mb of internal storage free which is way too low.
I recommend not going under 51.2mb for the HD2 T8585 and not under 100mb for the US version that has the 1GB ROM. That value is leaving 10% of the ROM storage space free.
These phones came with storage card and people need to use them more.
They also came with allot of sample crap that you don’t need that you can delete to free up space.

How to check on the rom version old 1.43 or 1.48 ROM?
I would hold off on WP7 til 2011... Read more..
I still believe HTC will release a higher end phone in 2011... I remember reading that the first release of WP7 devises will be the lower end and the higher end phones will be for the business user... I also remember reading that there was two phases of WP7 (Media and Business)... The business version wasn't complete and fully in WP7 yet....
I think we will see a device with the following:
-1.5+ GHz QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON processor
-1+ GB RAM
-1+ GB ROM
-8/16/32GB Internal memory (we have 8GB now)
-8+ Megapixel camera with Xenon Flash
-4.5+ inch Super Amoled (Could go to 4.8 or 5.0)
-720p Video/recording (could see 1080p recording)
-4G upto 100 mbps
-with some other features...
I also read that Samung will double the output of the Super Amoled screen in 2011... So it kinda makes sense that HTC is waiting for the new processors to come out in 2011 to release a high end WP7 device....
I'm glad the new phone is same as HD2, because a WP7 port to the HD2 is more likely (easier since same)...
Hello everybody , I've just buy HTC HD2 , it's really amazing cell , but I've problem using the GPS , every time I start google maps it request connection to internet , is there any way to use GPS without internet - note that I'm at China now ,is there any restirection of using GPS . thank you

Anthony, 23 Sep 2010It’s a problem I came across just this month.
I would not believe it, if I did not see it wit... moreFollow up...
The unit that had that problem, I had to push in the USB cable and press it to the left and right like when you have a walkman female jack with a short that you are still trying to use, for more than 5min before it went back to normal. And I only realized it went back to normal because when I had unplugged it the back light came off in 10 sec. which was the battery settings it had and not the external power setting it was using when it was bridged.
dan, 23 Sep 2010hi i have tried the brightness thing u said up and down on the battery brightness nothing happ... moreIt’s a problem I came across just this month.
I would not believe it, if I did not see it with my very own eyes.
Something is bridging 2 pins in the USB port, making the phone think it is connected to the “HTC HD2 CU S400 Car Upgrade Kit”. Causing it to go into car kit mode. That why it is picking up calls in speaker phone, that’s why it is only following the rules for the plugged-in back light settings and that’s why the screen comes up in landscape. Depending on the model you have the navipal interface will come up.
Others in the forum could tell you I was looking for a ROM with out navipal. this problem is what I was trying to work out.
What is bridging the 2 pins can be so small you may not notice it with the naked eye. It could even be lint from your pocket.
Don’t send it back to HTC to fix there diagnostics will not pick up the problem because there is nothing wrong with any parts on the phone and all they will do is flash your ROM and when you get back the phone it will still have the problem.
Now comes the hard part. This is what I read about the problem after doing a google search and I’m happy to say it did work.
You not going to like this but you have to do it.
Jam the USB cable into the port as hard as you can and rock it from side it side very violently. This will free up what ever is bridging the 2 pins that are used by the car kit and the phone will start functioning normally again. You can also try a can of compressed air and hope that works to free it up.
But until you get it working again, here are some things you can do to make using the phone a bit better..
1. Install the “Update for HTC HD2 Car Kit Mode function enhancement” from htc web site. This will give you back your portrait mode.
2. Set backlight and sleep time the being plugged-in to as short as you can. This will save your battery. Because as far as your phone thinks it is plugged in to a cradle.
3. go into the navipal setting and disable it and restart the phone so you don’t see that interface all the time.
4. You going to have to put up with having to manual take off the speaker phone from the phone menu ever time a call starts till you get the problem fixed.
Hope this helped and try to get the pins that the car kit used un-bridged and every thing will go back to normal.
