I put the touch screen keyboard in compact QWERTY with T9 if I need to type (no stylus needed). I got mine online from www.clove.co.uk you can find it on the where to buy on the HTC web site under united kingdom ... and no I do not live in the UK
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2009to anthony what is the diff between the 6.5 version and 6.1? is it better?the diff. between windows mobile 6.1 and 6.5 is too many to get in to from what I have seen from the bata test. it looks better than 6.1 but a final release is not in a phone in stores as yet. so I have not tried it as yet. the funny thing is, most of the new things put into 6.5 you already can do with touch flo 3D on this phone that has 6.1. so I could say it's not better but I would not because when it does hit the shelf, HTC could bring out a new touch flo to put 3D to shame. so you will have to wait and see. right now I think HD is "allround best" I had a Qtek S200 and I changed phones only when this baby came out. I'll change again only when there is a BIG difference I think I can't live without lol. (I'll see if my wife still wants this phone from me lol)

If anyone has experienced both, I would very much appreciate an opinion.
Also, when purchased via the net, where is the best buy
Thanks and best wishes from OZ
answer please, 02 Apr 2009thank anthony.. so the phone automatically downloads what it needs by itself with the direct p... moreas you are new to this phone you should go to the HTC web site and download & install all the hotfix
and a lot of programs will not work till you install .NET FRAMEWORK 3.5 so go get it and install that too. by the .NET must be installed on your PC and it will update your phone with it the next time you sync with active Sync
answer please, 02 Apr 2009thank anthony.. so the phone automatically downloads what it needs by itself with the direct p... moreno the phone will not download every thing it needs automatically but if you are doing something that needs net access, it will auto connect to your 3G, EDGE or GPRS. if you are not already connected to WiFi or a PC with net via USB & ActiveSync
answer please, 02 Apr 2009thank anthony.. so the phone automatically downloads what it needs by itself with the direct p... moreif you want to un-install a program from your phone that you successfuly installed you can do so by going into "start" "settings" pick the "system" tab and pick remove programs. if you just want to delete a file just find it in file explorer and pick delete from the menu
answer please, 02 Apr 2009thank anthony.. so the phone automatically downloads what it needs by itself with the direct p... morenot all programs are made to install from the phone. some must install on your PC and use active sync to install it on your phone. which windows are you running on your phone vista or XP?
answer please, 02 Apr 2009thank anthony.. so the phone automatically downloads what it needs by itself with the direct p... moredirect push is just for email. if you have a company email account. your I.T. can set it up so you can get your business email on your phone as well, not just the work pc. or if you have a hot mail account you can set it up on your phone and have direct push download your mail at intervals or as they arrive. but let me tell you, it will cost you a lot of money if it is running using your 3G,EDGE or GPRS unless your like me with a data SIM with unlimited EDGE/GPRS for a flat rate every mouth.

answer please, 02 Apr 2009also does having wi-fi, data connection and direct push mail on in my communications run my ba... moreactive sync running in the background does not use any power to talk about but it does use some memory. it keeps starting on your phone because you are using direct push. the more things on under the connections area the faster the battery will go down. so only leave things running in there when you are using them
also does having wi-fi, data connection and direct push mail on in my communications run my battery down faster or does it just allow them to be on? as u can see im not an experienced smartphone user but am trying to learn.
can anyone tell me why my phone does active sync on its own? from my understanding is that when i hit the icon in the top right corner to display what apps are running it means my battery is gonna drain faster if i dont close them right? i check occasionally to see if i left any open and close them but active sync seems to be running on its own often and i dont know if its draining my battery and if its performing something that has to be done for my phone.
Daniel, 02 Apr 2009Very, very poor performance! I am very disappointed with this device and here are the reason... moreDon’t be a fox that couldn’t get the grapes. The battery life of this phone is way better than most smart phones in its class. And don’t even bring up the Iphone, with its non removable battery that I can’t get change from apple if I jail break the phone. And if I don’t live in the U.S. or some apple country what do I do when the battery goes bad????? As for what you are saying about music from this phone through a head set is big load of crap..... I and many other people can see you did not even try a blue tooth headset with A2DP because you would know you would know you could change tracks,volume,start,stop without even taken the phone out of your “work bag” or in your case “diaper bag.” this phone is not for kids looking for the next flashy TOY.
To Daniel...i'm not sure you even touch this device...sun legibility is not fantastic but EVERYTHING ELSE is without any adversaire in mobile industry, so you must be affraid for your iphone for sure!! Don't talk rubbish, here you have TOP of mobile technologie at this moment!!
Very, very poor performance!
I am very disappointed with this device and here are the reasons:
- In a sunny day the display is barely visible even at maximum brightness.
- The battery seems to have enough mAh but actually the performance under every day usage is very poor.
- No hardware buttons except Volume control! This is very stupid because if you want to control an mp3 player software you should take out the device from your pocket, switch on the display and then change the song or else.
- Music, mp3 or flac, is not smooth enough. There are some interruptions and disturbances during playback. I tried with different players and headphones.
This device is probably ok for business use, but definitely is miles away from the best multimedia device.
