Hello! I want to syncronize my old nokia e50 with HTC Touch Diamond for contacts...can you help me?Thanks
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You are not making sense. Most of the consumer complaints on this phone are valid. This phone does have major issues. Some of us don't have time to figure out how to fix its bugs. That does not make us fools. Smartphones should be easy to use. This phone is easy to use. That is not the problem. The problem is its erratic performance and behavior. What's foolish is, why did they release this phone with so many bugs in it? Sorry, but some of us busy professionals don't have time like you do to look for upgrades. We just want a smartphone that works.
Is the ROM update only for making European models 850 MGH or can it make North American models work with 900 MGH? Please can someone tell me....THanks

I just got my phone today. It was shipped from Taiwan. Upon receiving it, I thought I could change the main language to English, however I am finding incredibly hard to do so. It only lets me change the country for the phone, but that's about it. I've emailed HTC about the problem and have no heard back from them. Just wondering if anybody knows how to change the main language from Chinese to English. .. . because at this moment in time, I can't even use it! =(
toink, 18 Jul 2008newbie here! how will i know the firmware version of my diamond?start->setting->system->device information..
u will see the rom version (firmware), radio version (gsm kinda things), etc...
which part that doesnt meet the performance it says ? could u tell me ?
coz "for me", my diamond's performance meets what it says.
All those who bought Diamond, you must appreciate that you didn't buy Omnia. The touch response sucks and the touch is mor than touch...you have to press a bit harder at times.
What I myself would like to know is When the North American version with GSM 850 and HSDPA 850/1900 is going to be available. I need to get back to a device with a true smartphone OS. My Nokia N95-4 is a stellar device but there are certain apps that make my life a hell of a lot better that run on WinMo and even the Palm OS.
ksra, 17 Jul 2008well, ask htc why.. i don't know the reason. but this phone have potential, the hardware i... morelooks the dogs bollocks but is it? i would like 2 no but expensive hope it meets the performance it says!!!!
This phone has unforgivable issues. First of all, its sluggish touch UI. For its price, you would expect a better performing phone. Another is its erratic behavior. Waking it up from its sleep mode is fine, but then as soon as you tap on "contacts", the screen blanks out and it re-launches touchflo, and then sends you back to the home screen, and after that, its fine again. Last night for the first time, the screen just went all white and froze, and I had to press the reset button. First reset was unsuccessful. The phone turned on but was not responding to anything, so I had to do another reset, and it was fine. It's a cool looking phone with wonderful features, and a beautiful display, but I don't know how long I can deal with its erratic performance. And oh btw, that glass display that's supposed to be tempered glass and scratch-resistant, it gets scratches EASILY. I can't wait for Meizu Minione to come out so I could replace this phone.
i got my htc this morning... =( and it went to align sumfin screen ad nothing happend i sat there for a gud 10 - 15 mins n da the guys at cpw helped but in the end told me it is faulty! i waited a week for this and already this happens... any1 have the same prob what did u do???
hello...i had this phone for almost a week now and the battery is not good and it drains very fast, reception also very poor and it hangs a lot...i need to restart it 3 times to get reed of it
Did you really know how to handle this phne?? Don't think so. The battery needs at least 5 to 6 full chargings to receive full power. I use it as a buniness phone with push mail - the battery runs for nearly 2 days with many calls and emails.
Try to get used to it and it performs very good. Problems may occure if you are using the browser running wifi and UMTS... just close the one or other and it is fine. If you use T9 it's fast for writing mails and SMS. If you have probelms with the battery just deactivate UMTS and it lasts longer...
You need to get used to and then it is really fine... keep on with teh good work HTC!!
I use this phone now for more than 2 weeks and if you know how to handle a WinMobile - GO for it... and to compare it with iphone - which my son is using - if you know how to use diamond you never will touch the iphone... my opinion!
Dear GSM Arena, kindly take all the positive and negative comments as posted on your site and send a copy to HTC,
Certainly seems that NO ONE at HTC is even trying to address the obvious issues with the device.
which is a shame.
A sincere word of advice to equiment manufacturers, beta testers should be power users, not gadget geeks / freaks who experiene bladder retention problems every time they hear news of the impending launch of a new device !!!
