But you will only get 2G.
This phone is not compatible with the USA 3G
There will be a USA 3G version later in 2010
High Tech, 09 Dec 2009I didn't miss it. I'm waiting for official ROM from HTC.All the roms on the link are official romís they came right off of HD2 phones that people bought (I think they call that porting) the roms were not modified in any way.
If you look at the Author: you will see it is HTC Corporation not a rom cooker name.
The last rom on page 3 is my original rom.
There are no cooked roms for this phone as yet because no one has been able to make a HSPL to replace the SPL on the phone as yet. (The SPL on the phone is like the BIOS on a PC)
So the roms are official, just the method use to get them and the method you have to use to get it on the phone, was not approved by HTC. But once itís on, everything is just like if that was the rom you got your phone with. You can even do a hard reset and it will still load up your new rom because you are replacing your old rom with a next one.
You complained so much about the pink spot, so i thought you would have jump at the opportunity to get rid of it as i did. And i donít even have it as bad as you.

Anthony, 08 Dec 2009http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E3821449-3C6B-42F1-9FD9-0041345B3385&... moreThanks for that, Anthony - .NET Compact Framework 3.5 now installed. I'll carry out a soft reset in a min and trust that'll put pay to the problems I had with Gyrator2.
Once that's sorted I'll be able to focus my efforts on that ongoing troub I have with the music player. Strange to think that GoogleMaps and other features on the phone run so quickly and smoothly, I guess I need to alter how my music is stored on the microSDHC card to overcome this...

Nonetheless I tried a soft reset but Gyrator2 is still is not working.
Also, has anyone elso had problems with the audio manager? I still have lag/lock-up when opening the music player despite having encoded all my ringtones in AAC format so the music player doesn't pick them up... I'm opening a folder containing 467 128kbps mp3s which are all correctly tagged and contain artwork. Any suggestions as to what I can do to resolve this? Btw, many thanks for everyone's kind assistance to date.
hi Anthony, i read all your posts and i have to admit that you have helped me to understand this device more than HTC's official website.
in anyways, i have an important question.
i live in USA and my cousin is buying me an HTC HD2 as a birthday present but he lives in Iran and want to send me the phone by DHL.
but i got confused whether the phone will work in USA or not.
thx in advance.

this is the .net 3.5 you need. just install it on your pc when your phone is connected in sync mode.

Well after having the HD2 for awhile now, I must say it is one of the best phones on the market today (Also the Omina2). After using it I LOVE the HD2. It has everything I need in a phone and more. When the pink issue is fixed it would be the BEST phone on the market (Tied w/the Omnia 2). I realy don't see a need to update to another phone for awhile if any. The HD2 will get the WM7 update in 2010, so no need to get another phone. The phone is very fast and fluid to use. WM allows you to config the phone the way YOU want to fit your needs. And for people trying to say this phone is not an iPhone killer you're mistaken. This phone is way, way better than the iphone, by far. This phone was made for the business pro with multimedia use as well. The all in one PHONE....... I read alot of post about what this phone doen't have. NO phone will have everything you want in a phone. If it did you would spend like $2000 for a phone. You need to phone that best meets your needs. If the phones fits your needs you have the perfect phone for you........................................
pion, 08 Dec 2009Well, well, nobody answered my questions regarding a comparison between Omnia2 and HD2. Nobo... moreI have both phones. Both are GREAT phones. The omnia 2 has some features the HD2 doesn't and vise versa. You can do comparison of the phones side by side. You cannot go wrong with anyone of them............
Well, well, nobody answered my questions regarding a comparison between Omnia2 and HD2.
Nobody loves me :(.
very good phone,very inpressive ,very fast scrolling
main screen outlay very good,
Mark to be more exact it might be the game called Meon Lite ( i installed 2 games at that time i am not sure for what game nf 3.5 was needed)
Mark install the free game over the w. store BIG RABITT is called (or something like that), it will install the v3.5 .NET Compact Framework TOO.
Has anyone had a problem using the Gyrator program referred to on page 12 of the GSMArena review:
I've installed the CAB file but it seems my HD2 doesn't have an up-to-date version of .NET Compact Framework. I see version 3.5 is available on the microsoft website - should I download and add this, or would this cause problems with the other features on the phone? I'm reluctant to upgrade software such as this or "tweak" the registry settings for fear of "bricking" my phone given that I'm a novice to WinMo...
Anthony, 06 Dec 2009it looks for new tags where you have music on the memory card (any where) when it is find new ... moreHi, Antyhony - I've culled the number of full-length MP3s on the 16gb card down to just 476 - all of which are correctly tagged and have artworked added but the music player still lags when I open it despite it having scann the music folder a couple of times now.
However, I'm about to replace the misc 90+ MP3 ringtones which share my 16gb MicroSDHC card with AAC copies - lets see if that helps. (I note my phone came with a default o2 ringtone, but this track doesn't come up as a MP3 - so i'll carry out a search of the handset later tonight and drop the AAC ringtones in the same folder) I'll let you know how I get on.
BTW, advice for all HD2 owners out there the MyPlayer "app" is one of the best things ever to hit a phone, period! And the CorePlayer program is excellent too and well worth seeking out.
HI i am a happy owner of a HTC HD2,but i am enoyed when some people disconsider this pfone from the start ( Lesley Braithewaite - he or she must be iphone/samsung/nokia/se , staff/dealer or somethingh ) just admit its the greatest. first: all phone cameras has some defects , its due the miniturising and lack of lenses, second : WM 6.5 "freezes"? what are you talking about? on the contrary its very stable , tho i like the fact you compare it to a real descktop PC , because this is it a great ppc (pocket pc),( 1 thing iphone will never become), the HTC HD2 and other wm 6.5 phones meets the demands of all pc users : working with files , coping , editing, listening ,viewing,playing , surfing and soo on... .iphone is a simple way to let you broke ( except for some nice games), yes wm is confusing but for 5 years old and for iphone staff/users , not for fully grown ups and people who want to get everything from their phone." HTC couldn't get rid of Microsoft Windows" you say it like is a bad thing (EVIL), it is clear you have something with all microsoft products in the way you mention the brand, WM IS the FUTURE , WE DO NOT WANT TO BE ENSLAVED BY IPHONE TO PAY DOLLARS FOR 1 MP3 SONG ,WE WANT the BEST FOR OUR MONEY.AND HTC HD2 LeO DELIVERS !! :)
NIMESH, 08 Dec 2009my HTC hd2 has windows mobile 6.1..... how do I upgrade to windows mobile pro 6.5???The only way you can get WM 6.5 on your HD2 is buying an HD2, which automaticly gives you WM 6.5, I think your the only person on earth with a HD2 with WM 6.1.. Good Luck!
