Like I have mentioned before, I am vote for having a screen protector in the HD2, although the screen is supposed to be scratch proof.
I got the OEM package for the screen protectors because in the US it comes with a set of 2. And no where in the package it says SP P300. So I think you might have different OEM product where you are. The only thing I see are big HTC letter in the front, and T-Mobile (front and back).
I personally think it is smoother with the OEM screen protector than without one. You get much less fingerprints with the screen protector. Hence, screen is less sticky. The product description of the OEM screen protector states that it is anti-smear sheet.
japa, 10 Apr 2010is it possible to use keyboard in landscape position using ms word ?Yes you can get the landscape view in any program and the keyboard to match you just have to install a program called changescreen to take off the lock HTC put in there ROM.
With this program it will let you use the phone upside down if you want to :-)
For some programs you will have to put them in the exceptions list to stop them from auto rotating.
There is a help file to teach you the settings
Here is the link.
you can also install
as you are on that web page.
So you can get that site as a app on your phone.

The caller ID works with the international slandered just the way you are seeing it the show up on the phone when you donít say the name.
So you have to save the number in your contacts like that as well e.g. +2(222)222-2222
can someone please tell me if the HD2 needs an antivirus.if yes which one do you recommend and where can i get it..thanks

Can you tell me you never see an iPhone with scratches on the screen?
The OEM screen protector is the SP P300. It feels real good; I put one on as soon as I took the phone out of the box back in November. But when it got digs and I took it off...... I can tell you your finger slides allot smother on the naked glass

I was just trying to help someone that was having that problem.
You have to remember this is a world phone and not everyone worldwide can get unlimited data.

Since I am using SPB Shell 3.5.3, the auto-update doesn't work with data service thru the phone service provider.
However, when I do a manual update, the weather does the update thru the phone service provider only if wifi is not turned on, and it will auto-disconnect per tweak set in registry file.
The auto-update for the weather in the 3.5.3 version works for wifi only.
I just find this a perfect setting because I don't care how many times it will auto update through wifi.
As for the weather update with the HTC weather program, it is not a flaw. After all, new smartphone with contract is not generally forcing you to get unlimited data plan.
I do see a point though for saving drain in the battery though.

Itís been some time now I have been using it without a screen protector.
The coating on the metal battery cover got bruised (It has a clear coating) from using a generic car mount. The coating on the phone body got one pin like scratch, from what I donít know (body looks like it is metal as well with a plastic coating). But the screen still looks like brand new whenever I get time to clean off the finger prints. The only line I can see on it is the sensor grid when light hits it at the right angle

Everything I have tried including turning off everything in Utilities & Social networks under Data Services in settings and using the timer in HD2 Tweaks did not help.
This looks like a bug HTC will have to fix.
For now all you can really do is us a program like ďdata ControllerĒ to prevent it from auto connecting when you donít want it to. Nothing I can find is working right for auto disconnecting.
