Anonymous, 28 Aug 2008it says 192 ROM, nothing about its "Hard Disk""Harddisk" per say is 4 gb internal memory... and touch flo comes with the official rom update as far as I know... I really dont know how it works with the O2 diamonds.
P.S. Great phone in every aspect (except the battery, 900mAh is really not much, but I guess it s a compromise with the design itself)
is it true that after a few weeks of using, the black plastick back peels off?
This is my first touch screen mobile and this is also the first time I have a mobile without Nokia brand.
Honestly, first time using the phone, I found it difficult to operate. Maybe because I was not familiar with the touch screen feature. Then my friend compared it with the iphone 3G that he has, this application is slightly warmer than iphone and of course as everybody mentions, a poor battery performance. Well, nothing to be worried about. The bottom line, when it gets warm and warmer it doesn't make a noise sound just like my laptop :))
For the battery, I just bought an extra battery with more ampere.
At least, I am pretty happy that I can make my friend want to exchange his iphone that has no real operational keys with my HTC diamond.
I like the scrolling wheel that it has (feels like operating ipod). Unfortunately the function is very limited. But still it gives an alternative when I gets tired with the touch flo.
Compared with htc diamond pro, this phone is much slimmer than the new one.
Overall I am satisfied with this phone.
Tap Start > Settings > Personal tab > Today > Items tab, then clear/select TouchFLO 3D.
how come i do not have the Touch Flo 3d option...can some1 help me??
why doesnt my htc have the TouchFlo menu??
it has only the windows start menu....
what should i do?
As a owner of the HTC Touch Diamond I was very excited to have been able to change to this from my previous Nokia N95 phone. However after first receiving it and taking it home. The first thing I noticed which was quite annoying was how slow this phone responded. The processor simply cannot handle the OS it is running. Secondly after a week, I got really annoyed by the phone in two main ways. The first is the difficulty of adding/deleting songs and photos in the phone. Last but not least, the battery life on this phone is just appauling. I would spend a day out leaving home at about 10 in the morning. Coming dinner time after a day of calling up friends to meet up, the phone would be on the brink of shutting down due to lack of battery. I dont change phones very often, maybe one each 2-3 months. However i have to say that the HTC Touch Diamond is the worst phone I have used to date.
If you get this phone on an Orange contract the ROM update on HTC is not compatible with the Orange phone so basically the much needed ROM upgrade doesn't work, but the HTC support guy did say something like if it was unlocked and do different things to complex for me, but I have to say this phone is out of 10 get about 2 from me

I ve got a diamond recently. wonderin where could i get to dl some softwares for the phone.

If you wanna have the battery life longer, don't let ActiveSync run all the time.
- add a fake server
- then AS option, schedule - put all "manually"
- and delete the fake server
Then your battery will last longer twice as much

TD lover, 26 Aug 2008@vodafone : actually there's great support from the xda-developers forum on this phone..

maybe it's because i live in romania... :(
this is a very poor phone vodafone has cancel it on consumer contacts get the samsung omina or wait for the htc touch proout in september it should be good
Working in Telecoms, I get to use a number of smartphones/PDAs. The HTC Touch Diamond is dissappointing in many areas. Even with the Touch Flo interface, it is difficult using the handset single handedly. Compiling text and email is a nightmare as the virtual keyboard takes up most of the screen. You could possibly end up with a huge bill as data services connect automatically and if you do not watch the miniscule HSDPA/3G/GPRS icon, you could totally miss this. It does not hold the 3G/HSDPA signal well as directly compared my N95 8GB. Video streaming is good when done over Wi-Fi. I am yet to install apps, but have already lost interest in using this device. The handset design is sleek and Touch Flo entertaining, but that's about it folks.

head down to www.xda-developers.com and that will be your only stopping place.
all software needed to make your phone glorious to use.
one word of advice...apply the tweaks that are available on the site and your battery will improve significantly..these people complaining of battery life probably havent and probably leave there wifi bluetooth and screen brightness on all the time..
