honda civic si, 01 Feb 2010hi!! i have the htc diamond 2 and i am really happy with it. i have windows 6.1 and i want to ... moreWell, after updating mine I felt disappointed, not because of the battery or gps programmes, they all kept running just the same way, but because I've felt wm6.5 is merely a visual update, no more, no less.
Let me answer your questions the best I can:
1- No problems during update.
Make sure your battery's loaded and DO NOT disconnect the phone at any point during update.
Basically, I've followed the instructions and the whole process went smoothly and without any problems.
2- I have Igo and Route66 installed and they kept on running exactly the same way (no improvement whatsoever).
3- Although some people have mentioned it, I don't think the phone's got any slower.
The battery keeps lasting for about 2 days, no more.
I keep using WiFi, I make lots of calls, but I only use GPS when connected to a power supply (usually, the car's).
All in all, you get a "nicer/prettier" windows mobile. No inconvenients, no problems, not even a slower phone... what you DON'T get is any major software development: It allows you to spend your money easily on "windows Market", but copying Apple's original way to separate you from your hard-earned cash, isn't my idea of "update", but after all, that is all it seems to be: visual gimmicks to keep you feeling you have something "new", and also keeping you away from other Operating Systems.
But, then again, that is just one (my) opinion.
Try to see WM6.5 working on a TD2 and see if you like it.
hi!! i have the htc diamond 2 and i am really happy with it. i have windows 6.1 and i want to upgrade to 6.5. I have some questions though before to do that, if someone can help me.
1. Does anyone know if this new upgrade will have any problems,
2. if 6.5 support IGO 8 (gps navigation) and
3. if the battery life will be less?

Edgar, 31 Jan 2010Does it have internal Hard Drive? if not, i have to buy a micro SD card? i want a 8gb, does it... moreYour Diamond2 does have SOME Internal Memory:
288 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM
But, you are strongly advised to buy yourself a microSD Card:
My choice was a 16GB card: the price-ratio was much better than going for an 8Gb card.
The phone "accepts" the card without any problems.
You may use to install GPS Software, Games and all types of applications, PLUS it will store your photos and videos!
Good Luck with your phone!
don't buy this model sucks. Battery life lasted only 1 day standby with less than 10 minutes talk time.
Does it have internal Hard Drive? if not, i have to buy a micro SD card? i want a 8gb, does it exist?
I also REALLY like this phone.
It's handy, it's got all the things you need, except... a 3.5 mm audio jack!!!
The battery isn't all that bad.
I remember having black & white phones with tiny screens, whose batteries lasted for... a week.
But, those days are long gone and I've experienced several other brands and all batteries (at this level) are pretty much the same: If you want a slim, comfortable, "pocketable" phone, batteries won't be bulky and they won't last long, either...
So, all in all, I am very pleased with my choice. It's not the best phone ever, but it does everything I need and I believe it won't have 'sighing' for a new one for a long time.
And, in an era when "every day" a new model comes out, that is also very important!
Enjoy your phone!
i'v been using this phon for 2 months it does for me no major issue yet plays flash,modrate picture just in day light,the battery is good and it works for 2 day and after it you must charging your phone again i think this is big disadvantage of this phone but realy this is good phone...good luck

It's a free programme that allows you to block "undesired" gprs and wifi connections and only allow what you want to if you want to.
does anyone have a solution to stopping data from coming on automatically when all i want to do is use wi-fi. is there an app or something please help as this is the only issue i have with this phone.
