2. what you wanted to do on the HD2 that you couldn't do.
3. what you plan to do on an iphoneif you get one.
4.what are your expectation for the iPhone4.
the more details you give, the better my answer will be.
if you just want i quick answer, the only phone now that could maybe get me to give up my HD2 is a Desire HD. and that's a big maybe. because i know what my needs are. do you know yours?
Hi Anthony and experts i need yr honest advise i hv ben using HD2 for 5 months now i want to change my phone and i am interested in iphone4 to get an iphone4 i would hv to spend £170+ my HD2 bcs i will go for new pay as you go iphone4.so what you guys think is that a good upgrade or i should stick to my HD2.if you think its a good upgrade than explain reasons thanks
mm, 26 Nov 2010thank you. i need those info. am really having a hard time downloading apps because i dunno ho... moreVery important. if you download a app from a random page or person... Scan installation files for viruses on your PC before you put them on your phone.
mm, 26 Nov 2010thank you. i need those info. am really having a hard time downloading apps because i dunno ho... moreThings you need to know.
1. You want programs that are made to work with a WVGA screen. (VGA will work as well but for some programs is will not full a small strip at the base of the screen.
QVGA is too small.
2. Any program made for win mo 6.5 or lower will work, once its made for a touch screen phone and you have supporting hardware and drivers installed.
3. Most programs will require that you have .net compact framework version 3.5 installed on your phone first before they will work.
4. .cab files are to be installed from the phone.
5. .msi file are to be installed from the PC with the phone connected in sync mode.
6. sync mode dose not work unless you have activesync or WMDC installed on the PC (OS dependent)
And you I now learning this OS and you will make mistakes and have to do a hard rest from time to time. So setup you “Myphone” account to backup you data to the cloud. So you can always get it back.
Found a cool app for Android called "Video Live Wallpaper"... It takes your movies and makes them live wallpapers (plays in background)... It doesn't drain any faster than reg live walls... It runs pretty nice on the HD2...
Give it try??? It's FREE....

mm, 26 Nov 2010:( I Don't use my MyPhone setup. so it means i lost the list for good. :(
okay ill go through... moreIf you want apps for 6.5
Go to the XDA webset
or do a google search for what ever you are looking for.
Put windows mobile and WVGA as part of your search.
Windows mobile dose not need an app store or market place to install apps, so apps are all over the internet.
If you like that app store kind of thing, google search for a program called Omarket and install it on your phone.
Programs in there are all free and made of windows mobile. ( not all for HD2 but all windows mobile, so you will have to do some reading.)
Note: the main installation format for windows mobile is .cab
You just copy them to the SD and click them from the files explorer on the phone to install, just like a program would install on a PC.
A, 26 Nov 2010Yep i did change the SPL from SPL 1.42(came with phone)
first to HSPL 2.08 then after
i... moreI’m only asking all the questions because I’m trying to see if there is a way to do a full conversion over, so future ROMs think you have a .405. phone.
Here is the list of 3.14.405.2 things you asked for that changed from 1.66
New SPL its version 3.04 now
New Radio 126.96.36.199 but you can get that in XDA to download for your 1.66.
New Protocol 188.8.131.52U
New message sent or not sent and retrying notification (looks like a sms but is not part of your conversation string…. I just love that)
No gray slider on dial pad… but you can turn that off with many tweaking software in 1.66.
On screen in call options changed. (not a big deal)
No need to install .net 3.5 (only advantage there for you is one less thing to install and take up ROM space.)
No need for any of the HTC hot fix files that are on the site now. (none of those problems are in 3.14)
New FM Radio… it is like the one you get with the HD mini
New Voice recorder… its like the one you get with the HD mini
And yes I’m from the same place as you so you can update you radio if you like.
Btw (if you drive) there is Garmin turn by turn navigation for us as well and it is sweet. (I’m using it on my HD2)

Your Android question has been answered over 100 time in the forum. Go back and read.
I would really like to know something. If I said you could upgrade to windows 7 but it would mean you could never go back to windows 6.5. Would you still want to do it? And what is the reasons of which ever answer you give?
I was cleaning some of my folders and minutes later all my contact list was gone. How will i retrieve the list? is there such a recycle bin for contact list?
secondly, is htc hd2 upgradeable to windows 7 or can be changed to android? your answers will be very much appreciated. thank you.
