I just wanted to let everyone know that there is a new SMS update that actually seems to work this time and also speeds up the loading of threaded messages (or at least lets you start typing while they load).
Seems that they may have left some debug code in the new fix since it appends -GSM to messages that are already on the phone (but not new messages).
You'll have to check the site directly for other regions.

Unfortunately, I need a full-size, foldable bluetooth keyboard solution ... and it's proving a bit of an uphill battle (for me and everyone else with the same problem).
So - if anyone else out there has any ideas for fullsize, foldable bluetooth keyboards (like the stowaway or freedom input universal, for example) that are PROVEN to work with WinMo 6.5 devices, let us know! It seems like almost all of the ones that play nice with WinMo 6.1 and below refuse to work with the latest mobile OS :(

“ Freedom Slim Bluetooth Keypad”
I use bluetooth for syncing with outlook.
Streaming audio to PC speakers for calls and music when I’m home.
Send/receive files to other friend’s phones
bluetooth stereo headset.
But for those of you who have the phone and want to see the supported profiles
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2010hi everybody.could u tell me what is the different between 65k sreen and 16m sreen??is it focu... moreImage quality is not dependent on color only
Your have to take
Screen technology eg. AMOLED vs TFT
Into consideration as well
So if 2 phones have all the above the same but only one was 56k and one was 16m
An image that was 56k and under would look the same on both phones.
But if the image actually had 16m different shades of color in it… the 16m one would look better.
But what we find is most things we look at on our cell phones do not have so many shades of color in them to begging with. So most of the time 16m color is pointless.
AMOLED is batter than TFT because it is “self lighting” vs “back lighting”
The higher the resolution of the screen the more detail you will see in your images and text
The bigger the screen the more you will see without panning or zooming
The better the graphic chip the less lag and more polygons will be generated in 3D cell phone games.
Hope this helps you understand.
I think you mentioned pairing the HD2 with a bluetooth keyboard in one of your earlier posts.
My (slightly ageing) Freedom Universal Input keyboard refuses to play nice with WinMo 6.5 and the forums are full of frustrated peeps looking for a decent option.
Which one are you using? How did you make it work? And is it a foldable option?
Thanks in advance! Seems cruel not to be able to pair this beauty and use it for some proper work!
hi everybody.could u tell me what is the different between 65k sreen and 16m sreen??is it focus on image and video quality?wich one is better?thank for your explain....
After years of using the jabra BT620s for listening to music on my cell phones.
I upgraded… (Daughter ripped the sponge on one side)
I’m now using the jabra BT3030 the design I must say is very nice and I can listen to music in the office without bringing attention to my self.
The included ear buds could do with some more bass for when I’m listening to dance hall (the BT620s was better for that)
But the good thing is any 3.5mm ear buds will work with it. The mic is in the dog tag so you don’t have to get buds with a mic. Any one knows a good pair of buds with a nice bass line. For under $50US?

Because if you do only the 2G works in the U.S. on the HD2 international version.
So you may want to wait for the U.S. version to come out.
But if you not planning to use 3G in the U.S. then the version out now will do.

I’m using a Digicel sim and everything is working on it. When I looked at the phones built in settings data base for providers.
For Jamaica It has the settings for
Cable & Wireless
So once you buy a factory unlocked one you are good to go.

Print to a bluetooth printer
Network with a PC over bluetooth
Send business cards
Sync with outlook
Use bluetooth stereo headset.
Stream music to a bluetooth enabled PC
And that is just the ones I know about.
Thanks Anthony; that was very help. HTC HD 2 is a world phone u dont think i will have any problems using it in Jamaica.

I read your post from my phone and did not have to zoom in to do that.
Do you think this site has 16m colors on it?
I read e-mail on this phone in landscape and don’t have to pan left and right to read a line.
Do you thing e-mail are in 16m colors?
This screen is 480x800 allot of 16m colors phones are 320x480 which one you think shows the sharper image? And if you thing that is not important, ask your self this…. when I watch a printed picture, what is more important to me? How much color it has or is it very sharp so I can see the small details without blurriness.
The screen and 480x800 res are also very good for viewing .pdf, excel, and word files. How many of them do you get in 16m color?
This phone does not come with a capacitive stylus. If you have big fingers, which icons and onscreen QWERTY do you think will be easer to hit? A capacitive 4.3” screen or a capacitive 3.5” screen?
I hope when you ask your self these questions you realize, once you have the money to do it. Hell yes it is worth it.
