i just got this phone few days ago. i say it can blow iPhone out the apple tree it came from. This phone is HOT. very slick and fast. Unlike any other windows mobile phone i've ever seen. My only complaints would be its pretty large (no homo), no miniUSB (they put microUSB), and last but not least, the battery goes out rather quick than my old HTC FUZE(touch pro)...
im really pissed off just for the missing miniUSB because I have those set up at work and home, and its pretty much standard. if it had miniUSB, i would be okay. Its a very fingerprint prone phone. But excellent phone. I dont think I can ever love another phone as much. Great Work HTC. WM6.5 is sweet.
I work for google, I like this phone, and I like google. The End

It is a Nigerian scam they pull all the time
The address is al mailing address that can’t be linked to any one.
Your money will be as good as gone.
I will willing to bet the e-mail address did not even go like @(company name).com but it was
@ya-hoo.com or something like that because the company is not even registered so you will not be able to find them that way as well.

Put a small amount of dish washing liquid with a lot of water in a spray bottle.
Spray your hands with it.
Remove the backings from the screen protector and spray the screen protector as well. (don’t spray the phone)
Now it will not stick when you rest if on the screen or get prints from your hand.
Position it just the way you want it and when you are happy with the location use your bank card or ID to press out the water and it will stick with no bobbles, dust or prints between the screen protector and the phone. Leave to dry proper so it will not slip back off.
hey guya i looked various sites for buying this handset,,,a website is presenting me with 370$,,,is it safe to buy from tht site,,,nextly the site belongs to a UK company,,,and they deal with products only thru FED EX and MONEY UNION TRANSFER
Is the new HTC HD2 only going to be offered with windows mobil? Is android an option?
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2010I thought that to about the mms but if you click directly on the paperclip symbol it comes upWait you mean to tell me the reason you thought you did not get the mms is because you did not see the attachment without tapping the paper clip??
I did not mentions that in setting up because I thought that was obvious.
Wow.. The things I take for granted. I did not even remember that till you brought it up :)

And I too, like this phone a lot that is why I got the screen protector and the gell case.
Here is why…
My first win mo phone was the Qtek s200. It had a metal body. It fell on ruff concrete one day when I was on a construction site. Every thing looked ok but when I taped on the screen every thing was out of wack spent about $200US (including shipping) to replace the screen. Then I ordered a gel case but before it came I had a ATV mishap and the phone broke my fall, The case came 2 days after lol.
Then came the HD. Had it on my lap when I was driving and did not remember it was there. (Gel case was not selling for it as yet.) Got out the car and the phone slid across the car park and got a small dent by the audio jack. but to me it looked like a crater. A lot of sh-it happened to it after that but by then I already had a gel case on it. So when I sold it, it was still in very good working and looking condition. The HD came with a screen protector that my daughter left teeth marks on but because the protector was there it did not go down to the screen.
Yes I know the HD2 has a glass screen but so does the iPhone and my friends iphone screen has a lot of fine scratches on it that you can see if you look at it from the right angle. I don’t know what he keeps in his pockets with his phone…

Blaine, 11 Jan 2010In case Khalil clarifies the importation tax refund upon leaving Dubai, I was thinking of this... morei dont think you can get a tax refund if you buy it off clove and send it to dubai dude! it wont be tax but customs charge. besides you only get refunds on things you buy IN dubai am i right? you're better off byuing from clove and sending to ur home country.

I go to Dubai and place my order on Clove and choose Dubai as delivery location. I can use dad's bank card since he has an account in a bank there. Any thoughts on this? Please guys, help me figure out an economic way to get this babe!! :)
Anthony, 11 Jan 2010you are right it is very ugly lol http://wmpoweruser.com/?p=8708LOL here i was trying to describe it and you had already seen it :P
Anthony, 11 Jan 2010You should get official screen protector.
And if you don’t plan to use the car kit a silicone... morethinking of the screen protector but not sure. i mean if the screen is glass and im not gonna touch it with anything but my fingers then it shouldnt get scratched right? :S but im still considering it, also im crap at applying screen protectors (never get 100% on) and there are always dust bubbles *yuck* :P
but the gel case things i know ill never get for many reasons. they make the phone ugly (IMO). the phone came with a super sexy leather pouch which i love and use alot (using a cover will not allow the hd2 to fit + the pouch protects). and the outside of the hd2 (other than the glass screen and metal battery cover) are hardened rubber which not only look really cool and feel nice and tough but rubber is a classic shock absorber (even hardened rubber). also the battery cover looks like it will fly off if the phone falls which many ppl dont like but dont realize that that is a form of shock absorbing...!!!! When objects fly off, they take away some of the shock with them (think of how many parts fly off formula 1 cars when they crash).
The car holder you got looks REALLLY cool! ill definitely get that one!!! the most important thing in a car holder is the option of rotating.
About the official car holder battery cover, i really dont remember where i saw the pics (gsmarena or htcpedia) but its really funky! u know the three copper lines that show under the HD2 batter cover (the one under the battery and beside the sim card slot)? did u ever wonder what that is? well its a slot for the official car holder battery cover, something slips in there when you put it on to activate car navigation mode and charge the phone (you plus the charger into the car holder not the phone). the back of the battery cover has a kind of a circular maze (u know like the circular ones with a small metal ball inside that you have to guide to some hole - like htc teeter) that sticks out alot. The functionlity of that is that it allows you to "snap" the phone on the car holder instead of fitting it in. you just put it in ant twist and the phone automatically starts charging and turns on navigation mode. now that sounds really practical but i find it a pain to keep changing the battery cover and no way in heck would i leave it on (again, cant use my leather pouch!)!!
DID I MEANTION I FREAKING LOVE THIS PHONE!!!
