Eddie, 16 Sep 2010Hi fellow HD2 users. A friend of mine is lending me his HD2 and I need help/advice with changi... morebecause the phone is running Windows mobile, changing the language is not as easy as changing a setting. you have to hack the SPL (using HSPL3 is best) then replace the ROM with an english one. I can help you do it but you have to get your friends permission because its going to void the warranty and factory reset the phone.
Well sent my HD2 back for repair for the SECOND time..... Not a happy camper with HTC right now.... Also they tried to charge me a $20 Global Warnt Charge... They didn't charge me that fee the first time, so I had them remove the charge, and they did... I found out about the charge when I called about the status of the repair on Tuesday of this week... Later that day I checked my email and saw the invoice for the charge as well (all good. the charge is gone.)...
Was told they're testing the phone now and should get it back in 3 to 6 days (next week sometime)... Hope they reallt fix it or it will go back... If it does go back, I will have them replace the phone, because it will look like they cannot fix the phone......

Hi fellow HD2 users. A friend of mine is lending me his HD2 and I need help/advice with changing the phone's language from Chinese to English. I asked around the local shops here and they said that since I am running windows, I can't change the language. Any help is much appreciated.
Wow i really like the phone. but i want someone to help me with this choice. sonny ericson x10i and htc-hd2 please...

but if youre looking up football scores, or just having a casual look on the web, then nobody would pick skyfire over opera

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2010Hey Anthony, is it true that you have to charge this phone daily?if you are actually using the phone and It's not just in sleep mode all day. yes you have to charge it every day. It's not going to make 2days. invest in a car charger because the battery dose charge fast.
Paula, 16 Sep 2010See if the model you want is supported in your country, checking the manufacturer’s local site... moreif you need help with a htc phone you check XDA. talking to htc help desk is point less. its like the people that work there never used any of the phones, so they can only tell you what you can read your self in the user manual that is available online. so if you think not having a help desk in your area is a problem, I can say people that have the htc help desk are no better off. XDA is a major part of what makes this phone grate.
See if the model you want is supported in your country, checking the manufacturer’s local site. If not, examine carefully the warranty conditions your seller is giving.
I couldn’t buy this phone because it would be too risky in my country. No assistance at all.

Skyfire would let me do “online banking” which need java script, watch “cnettv” which need full flash, not flash light. And for my wife, she could play facebook Farmville in it. I want to know what other browser I can do any of those thinks now that skyfire does not work in my region anymore?

now on the htc hd2, it's still a horrible clunky browser
the internet surfing is superb on opera 9.7, and surpasses all the other browsers easily
[deleted post]HTC HD2 is the best windows mobile phone there is right now no matter what brand you pick.
And if you like Android, Desire or the up coming Desire HD is the best from HTC. Can’t say if it’s the best on the market no matter what brand.
I gave 2 because people that use Microsoft office / outlook will not go for an Android phone as there main phone. And people that are heavy users of google productivity suits will find Android is better for them.
there are these codes that let u check and test many things on othere fones,like screen testing,sound menu testing and stuff..
are there the same codes for HD2 as well?
imtiaz, 15 Sep 2010I am using this for 2 months....
Advantages- awesome display, very fast INTERNET browsing, ... moreI have been using this phone for 10 months now so let me help you out with the ones that I can…
1. Internet explorer is crap everyone knows that, you have to use opera or if you are in one of the lucky areas use skyfire.
2. for the blur you can take the flash off of auto and but it on “always on” that way you will get a faster shutter speed and cut down on bad pic’s
3. use the player in the since UI it has a library that read the song tags to sort music (not files names). From in there you just make play list and save them or you can even make the play list on your windows media player on your PC and sync it to the phone.
If you music is not tagged correctly then use a program called mp3Tag to edit the tags on the PC or “Mp3 Tag Editor 2” which can be installed on the phone to edit tag from the phone.
5. The redio dose have stereo you just have to pick it. (and buy a good ear bud, the one you get with the phone sounds like a tin pan lol)
7. You get screen covers with other phone because there screens are made of plastic and use resistive tech... HD2 has a screen made of gorilla glass (look it up and see what that means) . And take it from me, one of the people that buy the screen protector as soon as I got the phone. (IT IS A WAST OF MONY) I took it off. Spend your money and buy a gel case, the body of the phone will scratch a lot faster than the gorilla glass screen.
8. And yes you can rearrange files this is not an iPhone. That is what file explorer if for. What do you think the cut, copy, paste, paste shortcut and select all in edit, under the menu key is for?
If you have any more questions feel free to ask :)
