I am a BB 8900 user and I do love it, however I want to try something new and would rather not join the masses of iphone users, I am seriously thinking about the HD2, is there anything that should make me get it? I just love the look and spec. Thanks

Nice to know u in this forum. Actually I bought it since early January 2010 from Skypeware, the authorized dealer from HTC in Cambodia, located along Monivong Blw n opposite the Penh Chet restaurant. That is why I got the old Rom.
Anyway, many thanks to Anthony for his always help!
I'm switching to HD2 from a NOKIA E72.
Any hints on how i can transfer my contacts & SMS (most important ...photos & other files , are easy to transfer between phones)
Thanks a lot for your time !
Anthony, 09 Mar 2010If the S/N on your phone let you do the download, then you have nothing to worry about. It is ... moreLots thanks Anthony. I just got up n will follow ur instruction to upgrade my phone this morning before going to work. All the best,
My phone is hanged & stuck. I can not do nth now. Neither it connects to wmdc nor any key works .....it has 4 colorful lines and on top left it has spl info.
I do not know what to do. Any help will be appreciated. All i did was...trying to update rom 1.66 from 1.48. In flashing process, it said "corrupted file"...after that everything frozen. Took out battery, hard reset...nth works.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hey there, easy choice between hd2 n iphone.. if ur just into gaming, iphone would be good. but hd2 is slowly having btr games now. its mainly cause windows mobile has nv had such a powerful device i think..
anyway,i honestly think hd2 is btr.. but if u can wait, might wanna take a look at htc desire :)
What I would like to see is when the HD3 comes out, I want to see someone port over WM6.5.X on it.... I just don't care for WM7 right now... It looks to plain.............
Also found this nice audio, music, and movie player called Pocket Player. It's a nice app.. I use it to listen to music from all over the world through Shoutcast Radio link, through my wifi or internet... It's a nice app.. I think it cost $24US... You might can find a cracked version....
Loaded Miri ROM v7.0 on my HD2 last night.. Everything is working fine so far.. The only thing I've noticed is that sometimes you have to double tap on an icon to activate it.. The ROM sync like all the other cooked ROM's I loaded (you have to soft reset while HD2 is connected to get it to sync. I can live with that for now. Only sync a few times a week).... I had to reset my HD2, because I installed an app called MS Voice Command on my HD2, but got a setup error (On Miri ROM v4.1).. That messed up my messages client. I could nolonger All Messages to pull up all my messages. Kept getting error message, saying "reinstall messaging client".... So why not load Miri new ROM.... It's WORTH a try if you're looking to load cooked ROM's on your HD2......

PS, 09 Mar 2010Hi Anthony! Many thanks for ur helpful instruction regarding how to make the best use of htc ... moreIf the S/N on your phone let you do the download, then you have nothing to worry about. It is a version change but it is one approved by HTC digital signature. No HSPL will be needed to do that update. Just hook your phone to your PC in sync mode and run the file from your PC.

Many thanks for ur helpful instruction regarding how to make the best use of htc hd2.
Yet, I have a question to upgrade my current rom 1.48... my last four number of the rom r 707.2, while the last four number of latest rom--1.66 released by htc r 707.1.

It has four lines (red, green, blue & white) and I took out battery, try to reset…nothing works….non of buttons also work. I don’t know wat to do. Pls pls pls help! Damn HTC…..how can they put corrupted files for download????

And has happened to me many times. In 1.43 & 1.48, and about once in 1.66. so now I try never to do a reset or take out the batter when the phone is on. A proper shot down and start back is the way to go.
When you have windows passkey setup, using reset is like playing Russian roulette with this phone lol.
SWIPE looks good, give it a next try as you have put nothing on your phone as yet.
I’m very happy with the default QWERTY
And find my self using both tombs when I have a lot to type. so swipe is not for me.

Thanks for the advice...willl never use the 3rd party reset button again....
Praveen, 09 Mar 2010Can someone let me knoe wethere to bu HTC touch pro 2 or HTC HD2 . which one is the best. and ... moreHD2 has capacitive touch screen.
Pro 2 has resistive touch screen.
HD2 is better in every way unless you are a person that needs a physical QWERTY. Then you will have to go with the Pro 2
Omo 9ja, 09 Mar 2010Dear Anthony,
My ROM is 1.66 already i updated the ROM using your steps via HSPL....Please ... more1. Power off the phone.
2. With it off, hold down both the volume up & down keys.
3. with both keys pressed, give the power key a firm but quick press
4. Keep holding the volume keys till you see the gray screen that says….. “This operation will delete all your……..”
5. Press the volUp as it say on the screen.
Note:- if when you press the power key you get the HTC boot screen, that means you were not hold down the volume keys properly. Get the phone to its power off state again. And really hold those volume keys down.
If you have put “leoimg” on your memory card, you will have to take the card out before you do this procedure or it will boot into the wrong area.
Let me know who it went?
Also when you install new software you should shot down the phone and power it back on (this is to make sure registry settings are kept). Try not the use the small red reset key or a 3rd party onscreen reset.

You are the bomb....never knew it could be done...after your post i searched youtube....and i have now done the reset the phone...welcome back...though i have to install all my apps again..but thats a small price to pay....BTW do you use swype on ur HD2....seems like a nice app...any suggestions?
