I have no reason to stick with windows mobile phones.
Any smart phone with the right hardware will do, because they all look like they trying to be like each other as far as software goes. Really not liking apple now! for making other OS makers into sheep too. They all what to be fruits :-(

Till then the milestone rocks. A phone should be easy to use and fast to operate. Somewhere the leo was a bit slow.I guess that is y microsoft is not making win 7 like a pda but something fast enough to match an iphone or droid.

ok after 2 months of heavy usage and rom flashes i finally sold my hd2 for a motorola milestone.
have to admit android rocks !!!. its super fast ..
overall the size is pretty small even though its 3.7 ". i guess every phone looks small after using a leo.
when i had a leo i coudnt stand anyone criticising it but one day with the milestone and i have to admit android is awesome .
thank you to Anthony , hightech, khalil and all those who helped me learn so much about winmo. but its now time to move on to the droid forum until winmo 7 releases .. no more winmo phones till then . thank u all.

there is company GEN TEL who posted an add that they are selling htc hd2 on $240, i have mailed them and they are saying that they can give me this phone on $240, is it actually possible, are they actually can sell this phone in that price or they are just putting fake price tags? can someone conform me that should i accept this or avoid the offer?

Hi, Hi Tech over to you. Could you help with the question about Esword mobile below.
I know you recommended Laridian, which I tried but I think Esword is the best.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Adam Conolly, 04 Mar 2010Hi,Anthony I can't thank you enough for all your help in making this phone a great user experi... moreChanging CPU Chip?? It may work like a desktop PC but itís not. I canít help you with that one. itís not an easy snap out snap in thing. You need someone with more know how than me.
As for the program you calledÖ. Is that an e-book reader? Canít you use a next brand? Some cooked ROMís come with e-book readers built in. (ask High Tech which one he recommends. I donít use e-booksĒ)
I donít know how that program is made up but I have found for old programs that have dropdown menus made to use with a stylus, instead of taping the menu button it is easier to tap the default word in the menu and the drop down will open. Then pick on the word in the line I want and not the line it self.
Hi,Anthony I can't thank you enough for all your help in making this phone a great user experience thru this user forum. I am having a nice time with my new 1.66 rom and yes it is far better than the 1.43 one I had initially from TMobile.
I however have some other related questions
1. I am a very heavy user of Esword app on my mobile device. I presently use an ipaq 214 which has a resistive screen and the Esword app words fine on it. I was excited about the HD2 becos of the 4.3 inches screen , fast processor and WinMo OS since Esword only works on WinMo. But after getting my HD2 i discovered that the app has not been modified for WVGA. Though you can instal it, is very difficult to use as the panels for selecting books and verses are too small to select and select ok is very dificult. The guy who used to support the app has stopped doing that. My question is - is there a way to have this sorted ??? Pls this is really impt to me.
2. Like i mentioned above, i have an ipaq 214 with a 620Mhz processor, is there a way i can tweak my ipaq by getting a snapdragon 1ghz processor to work on it and make it faster. ??????
Thanks in advance

I can tell you this without thinking twice about it.
hack your phone's SPL with HSPL and install the HTC 1.66 ROM, your phone will thank you.

If you have a provider branded phone you will have to hack it to get the ROM update. neither your provider Nor HTC are updating Branded ROMs.
if you have a Gerneric/not branded HD2, you will get the ROM and instuctions on the HTC web site.

How do you play RMVB media files on your HD2? I've got a couple of rmvb videos but they cant be played on the winmo media player or Coreplayer. Tried downloading and installed the mobile real player but it can't play those files either.
