ihave a question for all hd fans
can i upgrade my hd to have the new things in the diamond 2 such as the new start menu and windows mobile 6.5.
thank for your help.
love, 02 May 2009thanks to you all guys out there for clarifying my doubts. Few queiries more, wil u be able to... moreI woulnt worry to much about if HD will upgrade to WM7 as it wont be released until end of 2010. By then we will have even better mobiles!
Lauren D, 02 May 2009Hello. Someone PLEASE help me, I have this phone, i have free 200GB Interent usage each month.... morethe X does not close any program in windows MOBILE by default it just makes them run in the background. to really close a program you have to stop it from task manager. in the HD there is a shortcut to it in the top right corner of the home screen. but this is not all you can do to cut down data plan usage. if you are using windows live you should go in options and under sync schedule set it to manual so it does not auto connect without you knowing. Any other software you have that connects for info you should see if it has a manual setting. And if you want to go one step further install HD tweak and there is a auto disconnect setting for when your data connection is not is use for a few seconds.
im thinking about buying the htc hd or the diamond 2 but i want to know which one has a better camera and which one has better audio quallity while using a headset.
thanke you for your help.
love, 02 May 2009thanks to you all guys out there for clarifying my doubts. Few queiries more, wil u be able to... moreI agree with Anthony, there is nothing you can't do in WinMo.. I'm not 100% sure that the HD will be upgradable to WinMo 7, the reason is:
- WinMo 7 has a Multi-Touch Feature which allows you to touch multiple things on screen
- Touch HD needs a better graphics chip,
BUT that doesn't mean you can't run WinMo7 on the HD, You can but without the 3d graphics features and the Multi-Touch..
I think HD has alot of RAM for your work.. And its a must have..
I use PocketPC since 2001 (iPaq) they weren't phones back then.. Then they came out as phones (WinMo) 2003, i use one for a year and then jump to Symbian for a couple of months, then again to WinMo and its impossible to compare WinMo to anything out there.. Its so professional..
The HD comes with some lagging problems and you need to unlock, upgrade (flash) to the Diamond 2 software, but it will be worth a while as i said earlier. Then again i heard that the Diamond 2 has a perfect ROM with no lagging and problems. So i also recommend you get that and never bother with upgrading your Rom for now.. They have similar features but the D2 doesn't have the 3.5mm Headphone Jack and has a 3.2" screen with a Zooming bar which i really think would be useful for office and other apps.
Symbian is good, but not good enough to be used professionally like WinMo..
Up to you Doc!!
love, 01 May 2009 Hi GUYS,this question to DEXTOR MORGON ,ANTHONY, or lex. Hi, i Am new to windows mobile , and... moreHi Dr. the omnia hd has nice spec. but if you said you want to edit Microsoft Office files the Omnia hd can't do that. it only has file viewers not editors. and what your I.T. said about windows mobile has some through to it. but for older phones with lower spec than the HTC HD. I know this because I had the qtec s200 and had all the problems with freezing they are talking about. but that is not the case now. as for mod/tweaking this is what I think. if you are the kind of person that wants every new thing that you see, you will be tweaking till the end of time because windows mobile will let you do that. But if it's a work phone just put on what you NEED for work and the tweaking stops there. you need not buy this windows mobile phone if you find a better one. but I would buy A WINDOWS MOBILE PHONE if you want to edit Microsoft Office files on it. look for one with high ram and process... if you want to work on big files.
thanks to you all guys out there for clarifying my doubts. Few queiries more, wil u be able to upgrade your touch hd to wm 7?. Resquest to dexter , anthony, or james any of u guys plz can u compare pros n cons of both symbian and windows mobile (please be unbiased). Which wil furthur finally help me decide between omnia hd n touch hd. Thanks guys.
SNAP, 01 May 2009To dexter: What does the WEATHER application use to get its data? and are you from the US? it gets the weather info from a online data base. im not in the US. for my country the info is uploaded from the airport.
Anthony, 30 Apr 2009what ROM version are you running? Robby.. im now seeing your post because I've been busy. your ROM is old and should be updated. if you are afraid to use a cooked rom, you can get the official update rom on the HTC site. 1.56.405.1 (43972) WWE date 03/06/09. don't forget to backup your phone with active sync first so you can put back your info when you're done.
YuriG, 02 May 2009The music is great, especially if you install different player, i installed s2p and s2a2 like ... moreI listen to 3 hours of music and it only takes 25 % of the battery life. So i think you should change the radio version. When i listen to music and watch movies i charge every 2 days. When browsing and Working on documents i charge 3 days.
Best Radio for latest rom is 220.127.116.11

The battery is like on any touch screen phone last's up to 12hrs of use, not much, best to charge it every night! I had Iphone and it's a toy comparing to the HD.
This is a great phone you have loads of programs you can install, change the user interface and even the complete ROM.
Go on xda-developers page you will see the options.

If you're looking for a phone with a keyboard hardware, Either you wait for the Touch Pro 2(Screen 3.6") or get the Pro (Screen 2.8") or Sony Ericsson Xperia (Screen 3.0).
But i'm used to the On Screen keyboards and its really the same to me on the HD..
Adam, 02 May 2009Thanks DM, would you recommend putting WM 6.5 on first? Thanks again, AdamWell i think you should use win 6.1 (Dutty's 3.1 SHIP) Its just brilliant, i was 6.5 before, now i'm 6.1 again.. I recommend you wait for later builds of 6.5..

Edit/create word & excel docs, browse the internet (full pages), watch you tube videos, watch movies, listen to music, view maps, recieve and send emails and view full attachments. The list gos on............
Hope this helps.

Saed102, 02 May 2009Dear all HTC fans:
I'm intending to buy HD but after I saw HTC pro 2, I'm not sure to wait ... moreThe two phones are more or less the same. I think the main decision to be made is if you want a key pad or if you are happy to use touch screen.
There are a few minor software changes on TP2 but nothing major. (See youtube).
Lauren D, 02 May 2009Hello. Someone PLEASE help me, I have this phone, i have free 200GB Interent usage each month.... morePressing x will only minimise the application as in all PPC. To close completly use the task manager (top right on homepage). However, you will only be charged data on new web pages you open so if you dont end the application you will not be charged while it is running in the background.
