For those of you that use or don't use footprints because you think it is nice but the info is only for on your phone... you should know that footprints can be exported as a .kmz file to the memory card and can be opened in Google earth.
This is a easy way to email your footprints for friends from around the world to see.
Anthony, 10 Jan 2010It is funny that you believe the reports that you ready but did not try yourself but you donít... moreI have said in my previous posts that I have tried several units from different places during the last seven weeks and that this was what convinced me to wait and also that the problems were not solved. Perhaps you need to re-read my posts if you missed that.
I read that YOU didn't have those problems but I had some of them on several handsets and there are a large number of other people who have also had problems - go to Xda Developers and see.
In fact there are enough people with problems that some of them have produced software to try and eliminate these problems (or perhaps you think they produced the software for nothing?).
Furthermore HTC have produced a new ROM and five Hot Fixes so far (all of which should be applied to the phone). Do you think they would have done this if the only problem with the phone was the pink spot issue?
I said in a post a day or two ago that one person with access to multiple phones tried seven of them and found that the keyboards on 3 were great but that on 4 they were unusable. That points to the possibility of sample variation far beyond the norm, which could explain why HTC shipped the phone with these issues - they just didn't see them on their test devices.
However, just because YOU haven't experienced a problem (other than the pink spot issue) doesn't mean that others haven't. As I said there's a whole forum full of people at Xda Developers and from what I've seen many of them have experienced more than just the pink camera issue and HTC keeps churning out updates.
Also it seems that HTC have begun silently fixing bugs. The SIM Contacts update from last week apparently also updated the Radio (unannounced), which may fix a problem that some users were having that is similar to the one that the Google Nexus One users are having.
I'm hoping for a full fix for these issues from HTC but please don't try to say that your experience is the experience of everyone else. My personal experience, the reports from a large number of other users, the software made to fix problems by other users and the stream of fixes from HTC all say otherwise.

Just remember this phone is not just a net book for me. I donít just brows web pages with it. There are many other things that use the win mo, the big screen and the CPU that donít need a net connection.

Is it that you think Iím lying or that i am the only person using this phone that donít have those problems?
Whichever it is, what can i say.... just donít buy it then (as you said)

But that info comes from a weather database. I donít think that is updated every min.. So you will not be updating that often. You just update when you need to see if there was a change in the info not to see the info your phone already got on the last update.

If your dumb a-ss donít know what a bug is
Let me tell you.
A bug in a cell phone is when it has a feature and it is not working the way it was suppose to. That is a bug.
Eg. The people that say sms not sending or screen QWERTY activation wrong keys. (None of these problems i have) if a phone does not have a feature or does not have a front cam, that is not a bug, that is an omission on the manufactures part. And in no way makes the phone buggy.
When last you work on a .docx file on your iphone that you say can do everything when jail broken?
And for your information your iphone has a bug... they say it has mms... have you been able to send one to anyone as yet?? That is a bug if you did not know.
The jail break app to send files to a next none iphone using Bluetooth.. The app doesnít work... that is a bug. I know very well what the iphone can and canít do when it is jail broken. I have friend that have it and we donít have AT&T here.
Look... if you love your iphone so much go play some games on it and stay out of here. You are sounding like a next dumb a-ss name NICK that would come in here to preach about the iPhone goodness. But let me tell you this... the iPhone came out before this phone so when i sold my HD if i thought it was so good i could have gotten one. But i did not, i got the HD2. So do the people here a favour and donít be a next NICK... The HTC HD2 forum is not for people that want to know about an iPhone. There is an iPhone Forum for that.

Anthony, 10 Jan 2010I understand fully what you are saying
Because if i could not type on it, it would be of no u... moreHi Anthony,
I understand that you're saying and I already covered it quickly when I posted yesterday.
However, for clarity:
I have seen reports of phones with the original 1.43 ROM wether SIM Free from HTC or from O2, Vodafone or T-Mobile with the same problems.
I have see reports of SIM Free HTC phones updated to the official 1.48 ROM and phones from O2, Vodafone and T-mobile that were flashed to 1.48 using the goldcard method with the same problems.
I have see reports of SIM Free HTC phones updated to the leaked 1.61 ROM and phones from O2, Vodafone and T-mobile that were flashed to 1.61 using the goldcard method with the same problems.
Some user generated fixes seem to help reduce certain issues but I'm waiting to see what HTC can do about them.
As for phones with branded ROMS, I know all about them and I try to avoid them or debrand them if I have to get one so that I can use the stock ROMS and updates from the manufacturer. If I get the HD2 then I'll either buy it SIM Free or get it on contract from one of the retailers that provide you with a standard SIM Free device along with a separate SIM card and a contract.
I hv used hd2,iphone,satio and e90. I like iphone over hd2. hd2 is a windows mobile and it has some restrictions whereas wid a jailbroken iphone we can use it for gaming, bussiness and any purpose.Also the TOUCH of iphone is incomparable. Experience of gaming is much good in iphone than hd2 in my opinion.

And when i need the speed for streaming video i use wi-fi
The weather animation is not downloaded it is built into the UI. only the information the phone needs to know which animation to run is downloaded.
only those who are impress d with its look s has praised it.but those (like anthony, vish etc)who has done digging of it are cracking their heads in patching, tweaking, flashing new Roms.reason simple its full of bugs.
Why is it not equiped with a Secondary Camera. I am a Cellphone showroom manager in India, and on the advent of 3G technology here, people are buying 3G phones mainly because of the HSDPA and the Video calling options.
To do away with the secondary camera was the stupidest thing HTC would do, and have done....
The sales figures of HTC HD2 have gone very badly for the hype and inquiries we got before its launch. This is mainly bcoz of the lack of secondary camera...
The Weather in this phone run in 2G or 3G. i mean if i have 2G on my simcard, can i use waether function in this phone?. pls answer... Thx
im so glad ill be getting this phone this week! ive been waiting and maanged to get some hands on with the phone before Vodafone officially launched it at a branch. The screen is awesome and feels so light that you forget it has a massive screen. but a size that is comfortable. htc sense is amazing and the speed is tremendous i will be getting it on O2 (even though tariffs arent good) simply as i have more O2 people. Really cant wait! and bdw i love customising the phone so this is a dream :) (i have a htc dream too - android and winmo combo = priceless)
