My HD2 has started being unresponsive. Everything seems normal to look at including signal strength but hours will pass and my son will get a call on his phone from my wife telling me to turn my phone on. I reboot the phone and then i get all the missed calls sms's etc. Software upgrade was done but it is still doing the same thing.
Are others experiencing the same problem with this phone in South Africa?
Anyone in South Africa been able to install android to their phone?

Stick with the BB, upgrade to the torch 9800 now that is the BB I would get if I wanted to join the masses that BBMing at every street corner. :-)
Yes still using the HD2, and will be for some time to come. The Sensation dose have great specs for a first buy (better than the HD2), but not enough to really call it an upgrade if you already have an HD2.
And as I said in a post before I’m not switching over to Android full time till they get Microsoft office editing support right out of the box or I start using the Chrome OS on my work and home PC. (Android also needs a better way to sort your contacts)

And use the “Show App Names” button in the “General” tab so you will know how to spell the name of the App in the exceptions list.
There are 2 main ways you can do what you want.
1. Have every thing set to rotate in the “General” tab and add exceptions for the once you what portrait only.
2. Have everything set portrait only in the “General” tab and add exceptions for the once you want to rotate.
When you are done “export configurations” (help tap) to your SD. that way you can Import them when ever you do a factory reset. And you don’t have to setup every thing manually again.
Click the “show help file” link in the help tab for detailed instructions on how to use everything in the program.

Moved to BB 9780 from hd2 as I was tired of touch-screen thing. I'm completely happy with the way my BB treating me. It depends on personal preference.
BTW, r u still using hd2? Htc just released Htc Sensation....thats one hell of monster...i mean at least on paper. Its specs are so tempting. May be this is gonna be my next phone. Wat about u? Having said that...BB is also kinda addictive man. Email, battery life, led notification & keyboard ...are second to none.
Anyway, in the end its just a phone no matter wat u use. Just come to say hello to u.

I too am looking at the Android Tablet (Toshiba Honeycomb Tablet) when it comes out soon.......
My Peep for my HD2 is not working and I downloaded the latest Peep update at HTC site dated 2011-02-10(Middle East & Africa) as I bought my HD2 in Saudi Arabia. But when installing the update I've got error message "not compatible". Any help from you guys would be appreciated.

But sadly there is nothing out there that catches my eye as a big enough jump in technology or OS. So I’m still staying with the HD2.
3D for cell phones is cool but it’s a gimmick you going to get over really fast. Its like 3D in movies (good in 1 or 2 movies) crap/not needed for the rest.
Android is relay nice but it has some way to go before it can replace Windows mobile in a smart-phone “FOR ME” they need to work on how you can sort your contacts. After all it’s a phone and I would like to be able to sort a contact by….. first name, last name, business, name and business. Like I can in win Mo. And until I and the office switch over to Chrome OS PC’s, they need better Microsoft Office files support right out of the box.
But on the other hand a TABLET I would want only for entertainment and a Android honeycomb tablet is what I have my eyes on.
Windows “Phone” 7 is a joke right now, just like iPhone when it just came out. And there are no more Windows “Mobile” devices to come out again. So I’m stuck with the HD2 for some time (not going to switch phones just to say I have the newest “this or that”).
