hey anthony, just wanted to ask u something. most of the time i have my ears plugged up listening to music while im on my laptop, and i cant even hear the msg alert on my hd2. and i rmb previously i set the new msg notification to show on screen or something, so at least the screen would light up n i would notice it. right now that doesnt happen anymore. there's the tone, but the screen wont light up. if i turn the screen on the msg notification would show on screen.. but i want the screen to light up, so even with my ears plugged up the huge screen would draw my attention towards it. please help if u can :) thanks

Just downloaded Bing for the mobile device, and I must say it's quite NICE on the HD2 (though it's not compatible with it right now, beta mode). It's quite impresive. You can speak what you want like movies, traffic, and it will populate what you say, and hit directions and it shows it. Try it....... I don't have the internet on my phone to try on the road, I use wifi at home and places like Barns & Noble to surf..... Someone try with internet, it's nice, and report back??????

It will put a memory monitor in your task bar that way you will see at all times when your RAM needed to run programs is running low. So you can pick what you want to close from a task manager before the phone picks for you.
I never let my RAM drop below 20% so my phone has never closed anything i was still using.
I started doing this and using that RAM monitor when i was using my Win Mo 5 phone which was a Qtek s200
Because on that phone if RAM went under 15% the phone would Crash.
if you want the link to the program just let me know.

I have a question for those who saw the WM7 video. Is the prototype phone being used the HD3???????? I mean look at the size of the phone. Could be 4.5 in screen???? The phone looks like the HD2? I thought it was until I saw just the three buttons on the front.
You can like the interface or hate it, but nothing has been mentioned about developing applications or anything.
This is a sum of what we do know:
- New UI
- Zune Software Integrated
- Live Tiles
- 'Hubs' that connect to multiple sites
- You can develop applications for it (and maybe 3rd party 'Hubs')
Here is what we don't know:
- Nothing about multi-tasking
- Nothing about applications on the device
Here is what we expect:
- Applications from WinMo 6.5.x will not work, as mentioned 'a new set of tools for developing will be ready for our partners soon'.

How many applications can you run on HD2 while playing music and web browser on it. I find after running more than 3 or 4 apps the other apps closes automatically after 2 or 3 mins Please Reply . Multitasking has been problem with winmo 6.5.with 6.1 i used to run 6 to 8 apps without getting closed for long time.

The "Touch-IT BL - Updated with build 21892", seems to work very well so far.... I just want a sable ROM for everyday use with the Doc and eReader Tab's... This ROM may do the trick???? If this doesn't work, I'm going back to stock HTC ROM. Besides I'm getting tired of putting Cooked ROM's on my phone. Like U said about new WM7 cooked ROM's, I want to try them also on the HD2...... I just want one that will be my everyday ROM til then?????

And as for having to zoom-in to tap a link..... That is a setting in Opera, not a fault in the screen.
If you use skyfire browser you will see you don’t have to zoom-in to tap links.
Or if you use “BsB tweaks” to turn on “Opera link Click” you will see you don’t have to zoom in to click a link in Opera as well.
From the base of my palm to the tip of my index finger is 22cm and I have no problem sliding my fat tomb on the letter index that is to the right of “all people” without it dialling a person. And on the favourite people tap of the UI, i can tap their names to get into their info without dialling, which is what will happen if i tap the picture above the name.
Is your rom 1.43?

So at lest you will get to try it. Now those are the cooked ROMs i will want to try every one that comes out. Not the cooked ROMs you are seeing now.
And i think you meant 1GB to 2GB RAM and 8GB – 32GB ROM. Having 32mb of RAM and 2mb ROM would put you back in cell phone Stone Age. lol.
Well I tried one last cooked ROM "Touch-IT BL - Updated with build 21892 & 23534". They have two versions 21892 and 23534. Tried the 23534 (WM6.5.X), but the sync didn't work on it. It synced the first time around, but started to freeze on syncing after setup. Also you couldn't open Word Doc's either (from file explor or sense tab. So I tried version 21892, and it's working like a Charm so far.... It auto sync's with no problems so far. It's very fast also. Now these ROM's doesn't unlock the added RAM, which is a bummer, but it works well. Also they've added some nice app's as well like (Flashlight, Recso File Explorer, PPCPimBackup, CorePlayer, Pocket RAR, and xdaShutdown to name a few app's). Also it has some custom folders and icons.... It looks really nice as well. Will post on it some more after I use it.

I will not pay $800+ for another HTC phone, when I can see what other players will bring out for WM7???? I saw somewhere on the web that LG has a nice WM7 phone coming out, and who knows what Sony, and Samsung will come out with?????
I was hoping to get a feel for WM7 on the HD2, before I went out and purchased another phone (Mid 2011 or 2012), to see what the other players will bring to the table. I must for me will be more RAM (8MB to 32MB), ROM (1MB to 2MB), HD video (play and rec), and a HDMI port to play on TV (TV out)........
