Anonymous, 04 Jan 2010I´m sure that HD2 will get the WM7 update but I am very scpetical that the gesture controls us... morebefore upgrading it to win7, htc needs to launch a hd2 with a keypad!!!!!
thats the most important thing missing in this phone
High Tech, 03 Jan 2010The WM7 requirements I read said front camera is optional. The HD2 will get WM7........I´m sure that HD2 will get the WM7 update but I am very scpetical that the gesture controls using the front camera will work on the HD2...
I was about to purchase the HD2 but this sounds like a bad news to me and I will have to wait for the WM7 release unless someone can confirm before...
Thank you very much!!
I've been very disappointed with the HTC HD2. There are many bugs still present, which haven't been fixed by HTC. The 'SMS send' bug is completely debilitating. It results in many SMSes not being sent. SMS is a basic phone feature that any cheap old phone should be able to do properly.
There's also the Pink Camera bug. It has caused the centre of photos to turn pink. You can download the HTC patch to fix it, which you transfer to the phone from a Windows PC with a USB cable. The patch does fix the pink problem for still photos, but not for video. So every unit shipping has this pink video problem. The phone has a Snapdragon processor which is supposed to be able to decode 720p video, but it doesn't work. I read that this is a bug with Windows Mobile.
You can forget about using your old apps with this phone. Most of the collection of Windows Mobile applications were designed for stylus pen input, which most Windows Phones have. Except that that HTC HD2 is the only Windows Phone with a finger multi-touch screen. And there's the problem when you try to use applications (and OS) designed for stylus on a phone designed for finger touch. They often just don't work.
Because of this, my next phone will be an Android phone.

High Tech, 03 Jan 2010My HD2 is working just fine (with the new ROM and fixes). Maybe you need to send in your phone... moreHe is a bull sh-itter
And i called him on it.
Look at his ID Mx@E
And the ID of the person before and after him it’s all the same ID
As you can see my ID is LKmt and yours is kNkH
By the way i put on the cooked rom and my phone is still working :-)
Now i have to test it, will let you guys know what bugs i run into.
I did get and error about not seeing the phone
And it turns out that your PC has to install new USB drivers when the phone is in booth loader mode
So i just disconnected the data cable, plug it back in and let the drivers install. Then i ran the rom installation again.
The dutty rom i downloaded came with the SSPL already in the .rar file to unpack.

You may be GOD and You may not be, but I drop and believe manner other mistakenly do and expect their phones to work normally. We here in INDIA have phones which work after being dropping in water. After drying working as usual. To name the BRAND its NOKIA.
Even my asus must have fallen from my hand and works perfectly fine.
So sometimes a KNOW ALL maynot be right always.
