Hi my Friends,
I have one HTC Diamond and I hates my phone. I am very frustated. I can says that HTC Diamond was the worst phone that I had in all my life. The main problem is the Windows Mobile, it consumes all phone resurces and the Radio with the 3G is very weak. Before buying this phone, I recommends you to talk who has one. I paid $960 USD for a new HTC Diamond... I am so stupid...
