I really like landscape keyboards, but saw where HD2 only has portrait keyboard. Is there new software that allows for landscape 'board? It may sound petty but that's the only thing that's preventing me from buying this phone.
Ok...i called T-Mobile...
I spoke to a nice american woman called Elaine. She told me that T-Mobile only offer upgrades to the 1.5 version? And that i should contact HTC on 08458900079 (uk number), to ask them for the latest upgrade. They are not open on Saturdays though so i will call them first thing monday.
I did mention about T-Mobile pretty much slapping their customers in the face by giving them old version phones full of glitches..and she agreed with me!!!! Ridiculous! Ill call them monday and let you know what happens!

Also can someone confirm or deny this please.. When you turn your phone on do you get some red/pink text at the bottom of the screen shortly before the windows logo comes on? Can someone turn there phone on and off and have a check to see if your phone does this. Im increasingly thinking i have a dodgy phone...Many thanks and apologies for being a pain in the backside!

The phone has a YouTube player on it. If you look in the start menu you will see it.
Or if you really like to watch YouTube from a browser you have to install Skyfire browser.
I also guessing T-mobile sell you an old phone with 1.43 ROM or 1.48 ROM on it. The new ROM is 1.66
And the only way you could get that because you buy a Branded phone is to HACK your phone with HSPL

we might be looking at a faulty phone or at least do a software upgrade which will includ the flash on it.

Mike, 25 Feb 2010My cousin got HD2 & he is really freaked out. Full of problems ... moreI have had the HTC HD2 now for 3 days, and im disapointed with it a bit. Namely a few things you have said mike, but also the fact it doesnt play You-tube videos or any flash videos which is a big spread of the market when it comes to videos etc. When i get a phone i want it to play videos not having to find forums to learn how to run the thing effectively. Maybe its just my handset or just me but i just dont get why it doesnt play these type of videos (When it says on HTC website that it does...?)
Any advice as to how to get these videos to work? Because i have a returns bag for it to go back to t-mobile within the next few days if not.
I will probably wait for the Sony Ericsson Experia X10, which runs Android, 1ghz Snapdragon processor, 8mpix camera and lots more too. Dont get me wrong this phone is the best looking phone i have seen in years, im just disapointed. (And heard a fair few people moan about glitchy/laggy issues and other gripes)
Lee...from the UK. :)
i just bought HD2 and wanted to add more games.
such as bowling, chess etc..
anybody out there..can assist me..which website or where to download these games which compatible to HD2...
