Anthony, 17 Nov 2010I have no complaints in how (Mdeejay FroYo HD v.3.7) is running. But there are things i donít... moreYes the FroYo HD build is nice... I cannot use it as my main OS... It doesn't have the Office apps I need... As for navigation I use Navigon... Navigon is a very nice navigation app... I use to have it for WM, but will buy again when it goes 50% off... The one thing a really like about Android is the low cost apps for it... WM apps are really getting to costly (up to $89+ for some apps. If you bought the same apps on another OS it would cost way less)... I view Android on my HD2 as another OS I can use on a daily basis...

But there are things i donít like.
I see no eReader app in it. the camera is still there but it is not working (it just starts and shots back off.)
I canít believe Iím going to say this but the look of this ROM is better than my Stock WM 3.14 ROM the QWERTY is done better as well and Iím in luv with the browser(i turned off mobile mode and filters.) Opera in winmo wants nothing with this. Also like the universal inbox for all my email accounts
Now for what i donít like ....
Let me start by saying this is my first time actually using Android myself and not just looking at a phone that has it. so there is alot a may not know about it. So feel free to correct me on anything if Iím wrong.
Canít setup my custom inbox folders that are in my accounts like a can in WM.
There is no software interface for my dual sim card holder, so I canít switch sim on the fly like in WM.
There is no way to edit .docx files.
It does not answer calls in speaker mode when I have it in the car dock like WM.
There is no garmin.
Because of this i could never fully switch over to android. Will just have to switch between the two to use the things i want that WM donít have.
I lost my HTC volume boxes (system and handset boxes)... I removed an app from my phone and know I have the ugly windows volume controls..... Can someone tell me where I can find a cab to get the HTC sound system back????
Anthony how is FroYo HD v3.7 running??? Is the eReader app removed and the camera app??? I looked at mines and I'm still running v3.4.1.... I haven't updated because I thought an update to v4.0 was coming... Looks like that want happen til the camera issue is fixed or they're waiting for Android v2.3 to be released???? Need to know how you like it before I update????? Will check back later for your response..
Syrus, 16 Nov 2010Hey AnthonyÖ.speaking of Clove UK, I'm thinking of placing order for my blackberry 9780 which ... more1. Shipping options and cost are done in check out. So go see what your options are. (No need to sign up or complete the order) just put the phone in the cart, pick check out, then pick your country from the drop down. Then you will see what the shipping options and cost are in the next dropdown.
For my country it had DHL & International signed mail. I donít trust my local postal service so you know what I went with.
2. All transactions are done in £.
Your credit card bank/company will do the conversion on the day that clove takes out the money (not clove). And clove only take there money when you sign for receiving the phone. So from the time you buy to the time they take the money it just stays pending. So the conversion you are talking about is not done on the day you buy, but on the day clove takes there money.
2.1. The conversion on the site is just a guide to give you a ball park idea of the cost.
Anthony, 16 Nov 2010LOL this is not and iphone, all models are very easy to hack by your self for free.
The reaso... moreHey AnthonyÖ.speaking of Clove UK, I'm thinking of placing order for my blackberry 9780 which will be available in a couple of days at clove. I've 2 questions for you regarding clove uk.
1)What kind of courier company(For regular shipment) Clove uses to send your stuffs?? The reason I asked this is Ö.if they send by Fedex or UPSÖ.damn I gotta pay custom duty here. If they send by regular uk postal service or EMSÖI can evade this custom. Do you remember when you got your hd2?
2)Another thing is all prices are quoted in GB Pounds. BB is quoted 335 pounds in their site and they have 2 small icons to change pounds into euro & dollar. When I press dollar signÖit comes up $628.23 which is not true. As of today's exchange rate it should be $532.94. Its little confusing. I'm just worried if they charge me 628dl instead of 532dl.
Marwa, 16 Nov 2010yes i know , specially that i'm gettin it from another country , i'll make sure it's unlocked ... moreLOL this is not and iphone, all models are very easy to hack by your self for free.
The reason I told you donít buy it provider branded is becauseÖ.
1. Unlike the iphone, different HD2ís come with different ROMs.
2. A HTC factory ROM is better than a Provider branded ROM any day of the week.
3. Phones with HTC roms get the most software support from HTC unlike the phones with provider ROMs.
4. Phones with HTC ROMs has the lest amount of limitations.
5. Phones with HTC ROMs are the EASIST to get modifications for.
6. Phones with HTC ROMs are not locked to a provider.
7. And now that I know you are not buying from your home country, a new phone with a HTC ROM will entitle you to a world wide warranty. (not so with the provider phones)
8. If you want a HD2 with an English language OS, I recommend the UK factory unlocked version. It has the latest ROM update on the HTC site (version 3.14)
9. The version of the phone you get is important because all versions of the HD2 are not entitled to the same ďofficialĒ updates.
I recommend www.clove.co.uk to buy it from if you want the UK factory unlocked version. They dial with international customers and are official HTC recognized retailers. I have gotten 4 HD2ís and 2 HDís from there with no problems.
Donít let the #ís worry you. Was buying on behalf of my wife and friends. Only 1 HD and HD2 were for my use.
And I did mash one of the HD2ís and craked the TFT display (not the glass) but I got that display replace for free under the international warranty. (But I sold that one because I had already ordered a new one, before I called to find out about the warranty). Just like you, I donít live in the UK, so I did not have to pay the vat price on the site. I paid the none vat price.
Let the FUN begin....... Looks like nVidia Tegra 2 dual core phones will be out in early 2011 (just a few short months).... One phone coming is the LG Star w/nVidia Tegra 2 chip.... It's said the phone will be an Android version with full 1080p decoding and filming... Also phone is said to have front video camera, and SD Card slot (hopefully the new SD Cards with more storage capcity).... These specs looks good.................. Now I can put my Blu-ray laptop to work on recording 1080p movies for my phone????????????
Anthony, 16 Nov 2010if you are going to buy this phone, try not to buy it provider branded. alot less stress that way.yes i know , specially that i'm gettin it from another country , i'll make sure it's unlocked or jailbroke or something like that =D
Marwa, 16 Nov 2010thx alot =) i think i made a decision here , i just needed some support =P HD2 it is if you are going to buy this phone, try not to buy it provider branded. alot less stress that way.

it depends on your choice for me Hd2 is far better than 3gs in every aspect.and when you asking about apps you can run both OS in HD2 windows and android so you can have thousands of apps.
Syrus, 15 Nov 2010Surprised to see you trying android on your HD2. If you think your next phone will be android ... moreI'm all about getting the most for your money.
All before I never put Android on my HD2 because it ment I had to install a cooked WM ROM to get it working. but now I'm using my stock 3.14 ROM customized my way and a updated Android ROM, so I lost nothing in functionality. WM is still #1 for me from a work point of view. But now that skyfire no longer works in WM. Android has picked up the slack for online video. and is a nice software addition to my HD2 hardware. Android on the HD2 is a functionality add-on for me, not a OS replacement.
Jack, 15 Nov 2010I both agry and not,Android on Hd2 runs as smooth and full functional as on any dedicated Andr... moreYou're not the only one who still likes WM... I still prefer WM, but since they changed everything with WP7; I'll have to wait and see how WP7 matures... I don't like the look of WP7 or the restrictions by Microsoft (locking it down like Apple)... Android still gives you the ability to setup your phone how you like...
Syrus, 15 Nov 2010I ain't saying anything bad about hd2. I'm just talking about android dual boot. By the way, w... moreI bought WM becasue it's still the best OS out there (more mature and stable)... The HD2 gives me the option to do whatever I want with the HD2... Why buy an Android phone when the HD2 lets me do the same as Android (can load Android apps, etc.)... Buying an Android only phones limits my options... WM is the only OS I know of that lets you dual boot your phone... Besides the phone doesn't make the OS, the OS makes the phone... So when I bootup the Android OS on my HD2, I now have an Android phone....
