I have no idea what happened to my phone. It's only less than a month. Sometimes it couldn't read my sim card or memory card. In the first place, I did not remove my sim card or memory card before.
Zapper, 11 Feb 2011Hey DB,
Can u tell me how to copy Video files to sd,...i coppied some files but it dint show ... moreConnect your phone to your PC using usb drive. Make sure you enable the USB Debugging. Create a folder in the root of your SD card name it like "Zapper" then the sub-folder called it "Movies".
@ the moment your videos/pictures are at the gallery drag the video from the gallery to your SD card. Disconnect your phone from PC. Scan your video applications and it will find your videos in your SD card.
To play videos just click your video icon.
Have fun ... Goodluck!

2)- Speaker, i have no problem it is loud enough for me.
3)- Battery, normal use= 2 Days
4)- Screen= great specially when updated to last Arabic update ( mine is Middle East Version)
I've never used HTC phones.. im about to change my phone which is a nokia. Im wondering .. Are HTC phones better than Iphones? I pretty like some of the HTC models like.. the Inspire 4G , Evo shift 4G , Droid Incredible , Desire HD , Desire Z and Touch pro2.
My uncle has the Iphone 4 and he said that it was good.
Personnally I'd like a phone which has wifi , camera 5MP or better ,card slot up to 8GB or 32GB, fast browsing , good Ram , IM like MSN , Skype and which i can edit documents or read documents such as PDF , DOC , good sound, long-lasting phone , good performance , video calling ( if possible ). I have a crush for full qwerty keyboard too
I need all these as i wont be using my laptop much
Thanks for replying this .
I'm really struggling cause I dont know which one to choose
