Well I finally purchased the unlock ver of the Galaxy Note.... Just got it Friday, and I must say "I LOVE this phone"..... Was just waiting to see if it will get ICS update (Yes with new pen apps as well.... Can't wait for that...). This was the phone I was looking for.... I still love my HD2 too. Will still keep the HD2 and use it when I workout, running, etc...
Movies on the Note is GREAT...... Cant wait for ICS for the note.... I'll keep my Note and HD2 for awhile now... Then see what comes out in a few years......
livy, 31 Mar 2012Go to htc site download and flash the original stock htc hd2. I had simmilar problemMy HD2 runs Cyanogen Mod 9 now based off Ice cream sandwich.
i fully love the flexibility, OS's i can run on it.
Android 2.2, 2.3, 4.03
Windows phone 6.5, 7
Cyanogen Mod 7(based off android 2.3)
Cyanogen Mod 9(based off android 4.03)
Miui based off 2.3
PlayStation 1 emulator for Windows CE devices was also ported.
thus making this the most versatile phone going! pretty much any Os can be used and it doesnt take long!!
i can install ICS on an HD2 in 20mins!
RG, 31 Mar 2012This Phone is far far from dead! It runs WP7 and Android . Right up to ICS !! Wake up !!so you would tell your best friend that looking to buy a android phone today to buy this over a quad-core ICS phone because it can run WP7 and Android on a single-core CPU??? with friends like you, who needs enemies? :)
livy, 31 Mar 2012Go to htc site download and flash the original stock htc hd2. I had simmilar problemHTC no longer keep ROMs for the HD2 on there server. that's what happens when you have a discontinued phone with a discontinued OS. he/she has to get the stuck ROM from XDA but they must know there full ROM # to download the correct one.

hamzaazeem, 29 Mar 2012Hey guys what do u suggest HTC HD2 or Nokia 500??OLD with dead OS phone VS OLD with lame, close to dead OS Phone.
I see you are a lover of the older girls :)
I say the HD2 is the better of the 2 has-beens; you could still try to keep it in the game of modern smart phones with an Android cooked ROM.
makana, 28 Mar 2012i am in need of recycling my htc hd2. because i had problem with it. what happen with it. it is good one.
makana, 28 Mar 2012i am in need of recycling my htc hd2. because i had problem with it. 4 ways to recycle your HD2
1. Use it as a 4.3inch Garmin Nav unit.
2. use it as mp3 player at the GYM with blue tooth ear buds
3. With the right app it can be a LED torch light.
4. Give it for free to some one that wants it more than you.
blizs, 28 Mar 2012Hi, am planning to buy this phone. Just wanted to know if the battery backup is good and what ... moreThe description good to describe battery live is relative. It depends on what you considers good. Good for you may be ďokĒ or me and horrible for the next person.
Android will not improve perforce, is still going to perform like a HD2.
With Android OS On a phone with a single core 1GHz scorpion CPU and 448mb of RAM
Keep in-mind that a GSII has a dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU and 1gb of RAM
And a new HTC One X runs Android on a Quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU and 1gb of RAM
Improved performance on the HD2 is gained by installing an optimised cooked ROM or by having the last ROM made by HTC installed on it which is the 3.14.xxx.x and stripping out all the bloat-wear
Donít confuse Performance with functionality
When you install and Android on an HD2 itís because you decide you want to use android apps that you canít get in window mobile.
Newer versions of Android are more demanding on resources than old windows mobile OS, so what do you think that dose for performance if you canít change the hardware in the HD2?
Hi, am planning to buy this phone. Just wanted to know if the battery backup is good and what if after sometime I change the os to android will it improve the performance...

Hello Mr Anthony and rest of members,
Need ur urgent help, i m looking to buy Original HTC HD2 Extended battery, could u help me frm where can i buy ? Thanks.
TupiX, 22 Mar 2012You just forgot to mention it's possible to install Android and even WP7 on HD2, so u'll get 3... moreSmall correction to your statement
You canít have all 3 OS at the same time.
You can have WM6.5 and Android or WP7 & Android.
You phone only has one ROM chip and only one OS can be on it at a time. Of the 3 only the Android OS is capable of running off the SD card to give you multiple OS at the same time.
And the point I was making about buying a HD2 now isÖ.
If you never used WM6.5 or older before no point in buying a phone with that OS now. Because itís a dead OS to the software market and the maker of the OS more than a year now. So buying a HD2 now is not really future proofing your self.
