Thanks to Anthony & Chris
I've not yet decided to flash energy rom as current rom 1.66 is running good for me despite occasional screen getting hanged(one time a week).
As for radio version I'm aware of its effect on wifi, signal, battery life etc. But isn't it supposed to be "the latest the better".
I've not changed radio before. Just wondering....installing radio is just like installing apps or it needs hard reset, wipe out data etc?
Chris, 22 Apr 2010hey there Syrus, just thought i could give you some help as well. Basically it can affect ur c... moreare you useing that radio with an orginal ROM or a cooked one?
if it is an onriginal what version?
Syrus, 22 Apr 2010My radio version is 2.06.51.07. Is it ok to install new radio version 2.07.50.27. I need this ... moreYes the radio version is important.
Changes made to the radio software affects how the hardware behaves and how other software interact with that hardware. If the creator of a cooked ROM recommends a particular radio version, most likely he has a good reason for that.
I’m not using a cooked ROM and I have the same radio as you.
If you find a way to unlock the extra memory with a patch file and radio change (or anything like that), let me know. All I want now is the extra memory but still keep 1.66.
I can’t use a cooked ROM because the makers are striping out some of the HTC things that I use.

sam, 22 Apr 2010hello anthony yes i downloaded rom(in my pc)from htc site after
giving the serial number. tod... moreIt did not work because you did not follow the instructions.
All the writing above where you put in the serial number was not just to full space on the web page.
It was instruction you needed to know and do.
So go back and read it and do it.
You have it easy, not everyone that wanted to upgrade had a phone with a serial number that would let them do it, so they had to hack there phone. (Which I would help.) But I NOT going to spoon feed you when you have a “factory” phone and all the info you need at your finger tips on the “factory” web site.
Try harder to help yourself before you ask me for help. Please....
Anthony, 21 Apr 2010did you get it on htc site?hello anthony yes i downloaded rom(in my pc)from htc site after

Haroun, 21 Apr 2010Hey every body, can I know how is the display quality?
and what is the difference between i... moreDisplay quality is….
I will give 8 out of 10
Took 1 point off because it is not as bright as an AMOLED screen
And took 1 point off because in some high speed movies I can see the pixel rough edge.
Note the iPhone will also get 8 out of 10
-1 for small screen and -1 for low resolution which give you fussy text.
What is the difference between 16M color and 65K?
Well that depends on the graphic you are watching.
For text there is no difference
For comic art there is no difference.
For photos with less than 65K of color in them, there is no difference.
For photos with more than 65K of color in them the difference is…
How many colors the photo has
Subtract 65000 colors you can get on the HD2,
Subtract the colors that your imperfect vision & aware mind did not process.
What ever is left, that is the difference.
OneD, 21 Apr 2010Anthony,
Where(specific location in the phone) could i find ( in HD2) if i have NETCFv35 ??... moreThe phone comes with a version of .Net Compact Framework (but It may not be .net 3.5 or newer.)The only ways I know to figure it out is..
1. Install a program that needs the newer .net for it to work. (If your .net is old that program will tell you in an error)
2. You can just download .Net Compact Framework 3.5 Redistributed. And install it on your PC with your phone connected in sync mode. If your .net is older than 3.5. Then the 3.5 will install.
If your .net is newer or the same the installation will tell you.
3. If you have installed .net before (not what the phone came with) you will see the version in the “Remove programs” list.

thank you all
Anthony, 21 Apr 2010rephrase the question. I don't understand what you asking.Anthony,
Where(specific location in the phone) could i find ( in HD2) if i have NETCFv35 ??? Thanks
T-Mobile version of this phone has AWS 1700/2100 band too so it will work on Wind Mobile!
Please update specifications!

Few e series phones comes with pre installed mail software otherwise u can download nokia messaging from nokia site. In this software u can map 3 email accounts (addition to MS exchange)to my knowledge. Actually windows phone are only make to promote all window (Microsoft) services & feature, they are not friendly to other application/plateform. Hope this help u.

geko, 21 Apr 2010Will the HD2 just work as a modem and web browser when being abroad and buying a prepaid data ... moreYes, the phone will work as a "modem" for your laptop.
Speed connection will depend on which phone you got, and what the service provider has as well.
US HD2 will work abroad as EDGE (including US att network).
Non-US HD2 will have 3G capability, except in the US.
That's the good and the bad between the two HD2 available.
Esther, 21 Apr 2010Hi, thanks for replying. The 8gb SD card that came with the phone didnt come with the reader. ... moreIf you don't have a microsdhc card reader, you might want use the provided USB cable and set the connection as storage first.
Then copy everything to your desktop (preferably in a folder).
After that, pop the 8gb microsdhc card from the phone, put the 16gb card in the phone, and copy from desktop to phone 16gb card.
I personally think that if you can afford an HD2 and a 16gb card, you can afford a microsdhc card reader ($5).
The microsdhc card reader can comes handy when you need it.
