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..

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..

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970this is just another windows mobile handset.u can just handle in the same way as u handle ur windows pc.diamond is a very powerful one. i own it.it has high downloading speeds. it will be more fruitful if u can even opt for unlimited 3g data connection on ur SIM card.
by the way where r u from??
please if someone can tell me abt the keypad.. is it also touchscreen? where is it?
is the layout abc or qwerty format?
Hi i'm a girl and i will get my first htc-diamond this week. My friend has one and i dont understand anything with that phone, can some one explane how 2 handle it?
hello..if anyone could help me for something i want to ask i will be pleased..the standard battery of htc touch diamond is Li-Ion 900 mAh and the battery life 5 hours..if i will buy the 1340 mAh or the 1700 mAh battery,what will be the battery life for each..thanks
Worst phone I ever had. The baterry dies on me in half day when new. I do not want to know what I will experience in several months. I do not recomande it at all. It blocks constantly even thou I did not installed yet anything on it except the software it came with. I had far better phones than this one (I-mate Jas Jar)
Hi Guys, Im mobile illterate, and I just purchased the Htc Diamond, was wondering how you customise the phone like layout and settings etc...
can anyone suggest a website that explains different customisations and the in's and out's of the phone, would really appreciate it!
ps. once you click off the internet window does that mean its completely turned off - once again, im illiterate when it comes to phone and technology...
