Hey everybody.....I'm trying to decide between getting the HD2 and Iphone 3GS. I would appreciate if any of you HD2 users (who's been using the device for more than 2 weeks) would tell me what they PERSONALLY liked and disliked about it. I want a device in general to be able to run any programs I want it to, with good sound and display, fast and excellent webbing, good camera resolution adn overall EASY to get around with. So please one of you give me your personal pros and cons on HD2, and if you'd generally advise it and any problems you might have faced with it.
thanks for the help
Oh wow! Thats all i can say about this phone. I've tested it yesterday and i must say this is a state of the art phone! This phone makes iphone look like a disposable phone, seriously. I just cant tell you how overwhelmed i am by the design, functions, responsivness, the simplicity and elegance... its THE supreme phone on the market right now. The touch screen and scroll are just beyond anything on the market right now. Maybe this phone lacks amoled screen and bigger battery and better camera to be the supreme phone for the next year! Untill they start making quad procesors and HD recording and stuff, this phone remains the king! Its worth every cent and even if it costs ya 500€!
sun, 22 Dec 2009hey, i need some advice on general backup options before a rom update.
as far as i'm aware... moreThis is why I think installed programs are not backed up… Installed programs have reg. entries. You don’t want to restore an old reg on a new rom, that’s asking for problems.
But there is a round about way to back up setting and changes but it will require that you know windows mobile inside out.
I have only done it for google maps so I don’t lose the tags I put on when I do a factory rest. I’ll say how I did it for that and you will use that as a template and go from there.
All programs keep there settings in a file on the phone some where.
So you just need to find the files with the settings you want to keep and back it up.
When you reset the phone and install the program again replace the new settings file with the old settings file and wa la your settings are back.
This is how I did it for Google maps
I use PIM backup to backup my info on phone memory automatically every night to the memory card.
When I was setting it up I highlighted “Custom” and taped
And found “GoogleMaps” under “Application Data” and taped “Done
(also added some more custom backups and taped “ok” when I was done.)
Set where on the card you want it to save the backup
Tap schedule and pick when to do the backups and how many old backups to keep.
Hit next and the first back was made
Now when I have to reset my phone
I look for the most up-to-date backup and do a restore from in PIM backup
It’s a long process to setup custom backups for every thing so you will only want to do it for the things you really don’t want to lose.

Google the program names to get the latest version. I'm running 1.5 BsB and 2.21 s2u2 if you find newer ones let me know.
I did not like the caller id in s2u2 so I turned it off in the settings.
I still use the timed password lock from windows mobile I have it set to 30min just disable the auto lock so I don't need the password as soon as the screen goes off. note s2u2 has It's own password lock in its settings leave that off if you using the windows mobile key lock...
Anthony, 21 Dec 2009First thing... does your phone still auto key lock as soon as the screen turns off or did you ... moreso i need to first install bsbtweaks and disable autolock and afte that install s2u2 to get the iphone lock ..is that correct?
also bstweaks is a .cab file .. so installing it does not require some specil procedure right ..
i just copy the file on the storage card and run it ?
pls correct me if i am wrong cause i dont want to screw up my phone ... i am reading thru xda developers forum but there's too much info there
does the bsbtweak have any bugs that can cause problems for the hd2 .. i am thinking of installing the iphone style unlock as well ... does anybody know any known issues/bugs with the iphone style unlock ??? i read that there is some caller id issue with the unlock .. can anybody who has installed these 2 apps offer any advise ...!!!

hey, i need some advice on general backup options before a rom update.
as far as i'm aware, most backup solutions will save your data, but not the installed programmes and settings?
sounds like a pain to re-install and tweak all programmes after every rom update ... any cool solutions for this particular problem out there?
any answers are much appreciated!
