Hi! Just bought my firts PocketPC - Diamond 2, and since I'm a total newbie I have some questions. Do I have to do some kind of a jailbreak in order to unlock it/use 3rd party software? If so, where can I get it? How do I install applications on my device? And at the end I would really appreciate some general advices regarding this device... THANK YOU!
This phone sucks, don't get it. It is really slow, I had a lot of issues with accidental calling. Texting on this phone is impossible, and i owned an iPhone before this and text really fast. Overall, this phone is terrible, get something else (I advise you)

BTW, you get to the page link given in my previous post by selecting 'country' : Middle East & Africa Home - English.
Middle East is a part of Asia so you can try Asia.
Here's a link for the complete page for Touch Diamond2 - Middle East & Africa :

3.5 mm audio jack, D-Pad cum trackpad, dedicate camera button, standard miniUSB port.
Of course it has disadvantages like case cracks, but it seems like there's no perfect phone.
hi there, ive got the diamond 2,i want to upgrade it to wm 6.5, what region do i choose on the htc website? help much appreciated

Does anybody has an opinion about i... moreWell dude,
i would recommend the X1 if it wasnt slow but unforunatly it is pretty slow along with a prob called 'x1 crash' (google it) ,i love the UIQ phones from SE and they shouldnt have stopped them
Anyway, the Diamond 2 doesnt have that prob even with the fact that it has the same processor clock and its smooth but if it had a full Qwerty it would be perfect but it doesnt so if U can handle that fact then U should go for it
I'm really confused between Xperia X1 and Touch Diamond2.
Does anybody has an opinion about it?
X1 is a lot cheaper. And I like its keyboard.
I like Diamond2's looks and the larger screen even though it is larger than X1 by a very small amount.

M$ keeps on thinking mostly about its stock holders.
Maybe WM7 will be worthwhile. WM6.5? A marketing trick to keep consumers believing they're throwing out something new into the market.
I think M$ is definitely afraid of Android!
They're only trying to keep their customers hooked on their OS, they weren't worried about putting out a decent, quality, IMPROVED OS.
Although I own a WM phone I hope Android will succeed in its true/original spirit and I wish I'll be able to take the leap.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2009i need the upgrade to 6.5 windows professional of the htc diamond 2Actually the upgrade doesn't slow our Diamond 2 and it doesn't shorten its battery life, either.
I really like this phone, but I don't consider WM6.5 a great improvement.
I do believe there are far better ROMs around.
You just have to read this thread or 'google'.
Enjoy your phone!
