A kind soul has showed me how to forward SMS... ThanX Liezl! I however still have major withdrawal symptoms from moving away (or at least trying) from my trusted SE K800i! ;)))
OOOOOOOOPPS - forgot to ask - if any one "dare" to answer my re. forwarding SMS question - be so kind to mail me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org (if you may)...
How do one forward SMS on this phone? it seems to be either IMPOSSIBLE or veryyyyyyyyyyy difficult :( Had the phone for a few weeks. Previous phone you ask - Sony Ericsson K800i - and love it! But we all have to move on at some stage I guess ;))
This is my first Smartphone; a dream one.I have had this phone for about two weeks and I think it's good. I haven't experienced any freezing, although the memory leak problem is real.As a workaround, always go to taskmanager and "Stop All" once in a while even when nothing is running. you'll be amazed how much memory may be redeemed.
TIP: DO NOT CHARGE THIS PHONE BY CONNECTING TO COMPUTER!!!!! All my friends who have the freezing and power problems began experiencing that only after having charged the battery thru computer usb. Avoid connecting to pc through USB (use bluetooth) but if you really need to, make sure Settings-->Power Management-->When device is turned on, do not charge battery when connected to pc is set to ON!!
I got this phone primarily because I needed a tool for some kind of work when on the go and also for my software development pruposes. So far, I think it's great.I wouldnt STRONGLY advise anyone to get it but on the whole,so far, it's worth the $415 I paid to have it.
Will keep the forum posted
I've this mobile for 6 months and I'm very disappointed. I use the phone quite a lot and I think it has a nice range of features available but there two flaws that are just too much important.
1. the battery runs out of power in about 10/ 12 hours - it's just too bad.
2. it runs out of memory and doesn't receive any calls during that time before you notice it(you'll hardly understand that this is occuring since the display remains on). This happens every 2/3 days.

Hi all i have 1 question about S730. Have this phone GPS or not?
I have this phone and i can say Not good for the 450euro that i gave..The battery sucks, not more than 2 days with a normal use
Its very slow like a snail and very often freeze wiyh no reason..
the company at Greece where i came from is really bad as well .I want to sell it but nobody want it so you loose your money very easy...
If you are looking for a smartphone, do not waste your money on this phone. For a smart phone, this phone is anything but smart. The phone is very limited in featues compared to other phones. For example, there is no contact groups, you cannot synchronize your notes, you can only set one alarm, the phone is menu drive with no short keys for some basic functions, such as delete, etc etc. Then again, maybe I am spoiled, all these features were standard on my Ericsson and Nokia phones since 2001, including 6610, 6630, N81.
I had the S730 for a good 2 months as a replacement for my outdated NOKIA 9300i. I was excited being one of the first in South Africa to get my hands on this phone - 3G/HSDPA, WM, camera, email, wifi, the works. This made my disappointment devastating. The WM menu and functionality navigation is really bad and overly complicated - it took my company techies 3 hours to figure out how to sync with my laptop without cables. And only after a call to the HTC call centre could we get it working. And it can't even do it automatically, still has to be prompted. The phone would shut down intermittently and not respond to button pushing. Battery usage is a joke - expect a maximum of 1 and half day without excessive use - I am not one of these people constantly on my mobile. Why oh why is it only possible to set 1 (repeat one) alarm? Try finding a contact in your contacts list - compared to a Nokia this becane a drag. Try browsing on this phone - you cannot fit the whole page into the screen, even in Landscape fullscreen mode. I found the keyboard to be sluggish, lagging and not very sensitive which means a lot of repeat typing. Using the front panel buttons for anything is difficult - they are so narrow and small and pushing has to be so accurate. So this, my first venture into both HTC and Windows Mobile I'm sorry to say, has also been my last. Looks great, performs miserably. A friend of mine got the same phone - exact same experiences....!
DeJust, 12 Sep 2008Hi everyone! Is this phone upgradable to WinMo 6.1? I'm planning to buy it especially because ... moreThey released HTC S740 with WM 6.1, so I doubt they'll give the free WM 6.1 update for S730 :P
Hi everyone! Is this phone upgradable to WinMo 6.1? I'm planning to buy it especially because we have HSDPA here in South Africa and hope it's faster than the really sluggish S710 which has a slow processor and lacks 3G.
