Have been using for almost two months now... I strongly and strongly NOT recommend the HD2. Without any reason the phone freezes (dont remember how many times I had to take the battery out or reset), cannot install any apps since most of it does not work properly ex: foursquare (there are not many available in windows marketplace anyway), had problems with camera (sometimes it does not work- dont know why?) and HTC support really bad, only advice they provide is to install "new ROM" (without asking If you have it installed already - so check your version before installing new ROM)...Verdict: waste of money! lots of frustration!
jack, 25 May 2010I think 1.4 somethink. I bought it from vodafone malta and I just want the latest update
Ok you have a vodafone ROM on the phone (and a very old one too).
Are you looking for an upgrade to that same vodafone ROM or will any generic HTC ROM upgrade do?
And you need to know your full ROM number 1.4 something is not enough you tell you what to do.
tman, 25 May 2010thanks anthony...even if i am not sketching but just writing single alphabets its really diffi... moreWhen I’m creating a new file in “Notes” I go into the menu of the new file and uncheck Draw and check “View Recording toolbar” and I tap the keyboard icon.
So I use the keyboard to type text, and I make some audio recording if I have to describe something that is going to take to long to describe by typing. I gave up on trying to make any proper diagrams on this screen with my finger. I think you will have to buy the stylus for that. Only rough sketches can be done easily with my finder, no works of art. :-

What ROM do you want to upgrade to, the upgrade to what you have now or upgrade to a next language/region/provider?
You have to answer this before anyone can truly help you.

I am reading articles about running the blackberry suite on a windows mobile phone.
And I am wounding if any of you have been successful in doing it on the HD2?
For the people that are still having problems with there data connection not disconnecting when it is idle…..
In the pass I have had a SIM just for data and a next for voice calls and used a program called “Data Controller” to stop the voice sim from being able to access a sim data connection. This was good enough for me and most people but some of you out there still wanted auto connect to use data on the sim but have it cut off when you turn on Wi-Fi or when it was setting idle and “Data Controller” could not do that.
Well for the past few weeks I have gotten one sim for both voice and data use, which put me in the group of people that also needed something a little more than “Data Controller.”
I have been using a program called “WMLongLife” for just over 2 weeks now and I can safely say, after putting the setting to how I want it.
1. My sim data connection is disconnected 15 seconds after it is no longer needed.
2. Is does not cut my bluetooth connections at the same time.
3. Wi-fi connection takes priority over sim data
4. sim data auto connects if there is no wifi and data is needed. And disconnects 15 seconds after it is no longer needed.
Note: you can’t have your mail set to “get it as soon as it arrives or you will never disconnect. So check for mail every how ever min or hours has to be used.
Hope this information comes in handy to other users of the HD2
zil, 25 May 2010...purchased my phone 2 months ago and it keeps switching off after downloading some applicati... morethat sounds like a hardware problem. you may need to send the phone back.
but if you want you can try a hard reset to put the phone back to factory settings.
a soft reset will not help you with that problem.
...purchased my phone 2 months ago and it keeps switching off after downloading some applications like games, quotes, horoscope etc.. i was advised that my prone may not like these applications so i stop and removed almost all. until now, it keeps switching off for some reason like in the middle of a call about 5 minutes it switched off, and making a call while moving, walking it's turning off. I wonder whats the reason. I also notice that its too sensitive in a sudden change of weather from being inside the cold office to coming out in a sunny weather. can anyone please advise if its ok to make a soft reset? do you think it can help a bit? Thanks in advance
hd2 is a piece of trash . do not buy it never . its price was around 900 $ in kuwait 3 month ego but now the price is 540 $ !!!!! and they give you a printer for free too !!!!! do you now why ? caz it is a piece of trash . but if you are rich you can buy it and use it for a cupple days then throw it away . it has too many problems . you can not put it in your pucket caz its too big . you can not use it by one hand unless your hand is xxxxxxl size . hanging is in its blood !!!! . the screen reacts from on cloths !!! . tuch keybord will make you crazy caz wathever you try to type words correctly you can not do it specialy if you are in a car . and too many other problems but i dont have time to write them . never buy a new release mobile . wait several months to make sure its a good mobile and be careful when you want to buy a device make sure its pack is plombed and open it by yourself and do not let the seller open it .
What should I get HTC HD2 or HTC TOUCH PRO 2.it's been very hard for me to make a decision..i use my phone for everything
Lyn, 25 May 2010Dear Anthony I never changed my router or network key just the same settings.anyways i followe... moreI think i had the same problem at a time...check your ip address assigned by the router to your PC, shouldn't be x.x.x.1
if it is, do a "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew"...this what i had to do.
Lyn, 25 May 2010Dear Anthony I never changed my router or network key just the same settings.anyways i followe... morethis may be a stupid question but did you check to see if any other device is getting internet from that router? it may need to be reset or just unplugged for 10th seconds or so.
considering trading my iphone 3gs 32gb for this phone. is it worth the upgrade?
