That allowed me to buy the 128GB SD Card :) :) :) Toshiba is matching the lower price of the other Tabs, which lowered their prices... Sweet......

It's still a great phone to have (haven't seen any new released phones that much better than the HD2)... If you look at the new released phone they really have just more speed (dual core)... Some new phones have a nice screen, but the HD2 screen is not bad at all... My movies look just like DVD quality on the phone... I think you will see some sweet phone when Android Ice Cream Sandwhich is released around October or November.... That will be the time to buy... I'm hoping that the developers will be able to port Ice Cream to the HD2?????
I just bought a Toshiba Thrive 32GB Tablet and LOVE it... It has everything you want in a Tab and more... Just ordered a 128GB SDXC (new SD Card standard, can go upto 2TB cards) for my thrive (will have a total of 160GB of storage)... Movies LOOK GREAT on the Thrive...... They look even better when you connect the Thrive to an 1080P HDTV (with the included full size HDMI slot on the Thrive... None of that mini HDMI STUFF)....
Been reading so called specs on the Google Nexus Prime, which will come with Android 4.0 (Ice cream sandwhich)... The specs call for a monster screen (no size mentioned. Assume it will be 4.5+), Super HD 720P screen, capable of 1080p video/playback, 1.5 dual core speeds, LTE 4G, 1GB on board storage, etc. IF TRUE this will be a great phone coming... Said will be out around Thanksgiving time frame... Google want to release around the same time as new iphone... This will trump the iphone no question.............

both my wife and i have HD2's and don't plan to replace it any time soon.
i got mine when i just came out (1.43 ROM batch) she has hers just over a year (1.66 ROM batch) i do theup keeping of both so that have been upgraded to 3.14 ROMs
true battery life is not great but am yet to see a next phone that has the same spec last any longer... you want long lasting battery you got to get a basic or a media phone..
crashing on a none defective HD2 is caused by badly written 3rd party apps and lack of the 10% free space on internal storage.
heat is common on all smart phones with a CPU that fast but a body that thin. laptop with 1ghz CPUs have cooling fans see any space for a cooling fan in a phone? CPU heat has to go some where...
but i do agree don't by this phone now is it's outdated. don't know how much time it's got left before it gets left behind by newer phones.
bty. i stepped on my phone and cracked the display last year and HTC fixed it for free. and it didn't have to go back after that.
the help desk behave like brain dead people, but repairs do there job. LOL.
DON'T BUY THIS PHONE!!!
1st-battery life sucks! u need to charge 2 to 3 times a day if u'r frequently on calls or net browsing.
2nd-d screen often hangs. u need to reboot the fon agen & agen & agen.
3rd-it heats up if u r net browsing even for awhile and if u r on long calls.
4th-had it repaired to HTC service center 3 times in less than 6 months.. breakdown in every two months on the average plus repair time of up to 3 weeks, ergo, usage time between failure is up to 5 weeks on d average..
5th-after the 1 year expiry of the warranty, i had to smash it on the wall after the screen went blank and never rebooted...
SO, thats why i recommend NEVER TO BUY THIS FON!!!
There is an 1550mAh battery for it. My friend has an HD2 and has bought that battery on eBay. He says that is hold 2 day of pretty heavy usage.

hd2..., 12 Aug 2011is it important or necessary to update ROM before i install android 2.3 sd version???? please replyit is very important to have a up-to-date radio version. before you change to Android. it contains your hardware drivers. and the easy way (not the only way) to update the radio version is to update the ROM.
From what I've read from its users' opinions,it's a an awesome phone with great versatility to it.However,before I buy it,how great is the battery life??Is the 1230mAH battery capable of giving me atlest 12hrs of heavy texting,tweeting and calling or do I have to get the 2300 mAH extended battery pack for that??
