Can Any tell me for sure if this phone will come to TMobile USA anytime soon? The Tmobile here are not known for carrying attractive phones. I would love to see this phone come to TMo USA and even the Vario 5, but I much prefer not having a slide out keyboard.
LarryG, 01 Aug 2009Hi guys. This weak i`m have an upgrade,can any one tell wich phone is better,this one or mda v... moreThe Compact V is a full touchscreen phone whereas the vario IV has the facility to slide the screen to reveal a Qwerty keyboard as well as being a touchscreen. All the features bar this are near enough identical. I work in T Mobile upgrade dept and both are popular phones it just comes down to preference. I personally prefer the Compact V as it's slimer and looks nicer. Also it is newer than the Vario IV bu only by a few months.

T-mobile just let's htc make the same phone that already have but with the tmobile signature on it because it's cheaper. So i't should probably be the same......

This is quite a nice phone ...Just wonder when we going to have it in SA and just hope Virgin Mobile will have it soon
Got this phone today, no flash on the camera? Specs said there is, any users please tell me where. Also haven't yet found the handwriting recognition, where is that? Help anyone, thank you.
I have had exactly the same experience with T-Mob. Why are they bothering to drum up interest in a device that they clearly haven't got in stock? Desperation perhaps!!
Iswordsius, 10 Jul 2009Spoke to T-mobile, phone gets released Fri 10 Jul.@Iswordsius - are you sure? Because T-mobile has changed the goalposts so many times I'm begining to brlieve that this phone is just a phantom. I've been given several May, June and now July dates by T-MOB customer service for release, yet I hear some people saying they already have the phone. Who's lying?
T-mobile told me on July 2 to go into any store and pick up my order which they had set up, because they had run out of phones to post to me. On getting to a store they bluntly told me they had never even seen a Demo piece of the phone, never ever have stocked it in any retail outlet in the UK and have no idea when they will. Yet T-Moblie have been advertising it in their magazines since May! PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!
Very Happy with phone but only problem is battery timing. apart from that it is great. Touch is much much batter than any other HTC phone.
naush, 08 Jul 2009since when was tmobile releasing the touch pro2 diamond?Spoke to T-mobile, phone gets released Fri 10 Jul.
The MDA Compact V is T-Mobile's release of the HTC Touch Diamond 2 as they did with the original Touch Diamond (Compact IV). The only difference is the casing is slightly change for some reason. Also there's the addition of Web 'n' Walk widgets (not too many available currently) and Mobile TV which I don't use.
I got mine last week (free on my business contract), and it's a really good phone with an great screen. Windows Mobile 6.1 is flawed but the TouchFlo 3D interface makes up for it.

ok, so this isn't a Touch HD and its not quite the Diamond 2 either....soooo what ... moreActually, it is the Touch Diamond 2. Just compare the specs here...
thegame, 09 Jun 20091st!! ok, so this isn't a Touch HD and its not quite the Diamond 2 either....soooo what ... moreIts a lighter, slimmer, narrower, shorter version of the vario v. It has a way better camera, better gps, radio but lacks the qwerty keyboard, tv output and battery life. Basically they are catering for two types of crowds, personally I like a tangible qwerty, though it might be heavier.
