This is an out and out work phone and is not for posers or kids. I moved to it from an HTC Touch and find it a much, much meatier machine. The slide out keyboard is great but it's a shame you lose some of the touch screen capability when using it. The overall feel of the phone is classy and solid. I recently downloaded the 6.5 upgrade and find it better than 6.1. Unfortunately the iPhone apps still beat Windows Mobile Marketplace but I reckon it's only a matter of time before Windows catches up. A tip: Marketplace charges for applications that are available free from www.softonic.com. Softonic also sells other software much cheaper. Basically, I have always loved HTC phones and the Touch Pro 2 is the best so far in my books!

brad, 09 Nov 2009hi i am from sa and i have a touch pro 2 and i am very very excited i got it now for 3 weeks i... moreJa Boet, - same here.
Got mine 3 weeks ago from Vodacom, after pining for months, - was so excited, I was scared to even touch it for the first few days! gave it a full 16 hour charge, and only a coupla days later got seriously into it. Loaded the WinMo 6.5 ROM from HTC last weekend, - and I luv it! Looks better, and as for the animated home screensaver, - I just want there to be stormy weather everyday! The lightning is sooo cool! Setup Gmail and Vodamail accounts; need to find good (free) GPS software.
Apart from the size and the pouch that can only be slipped into a pocket or hand held (cannot be worn on the hip), this phone is the amazing!
hi i am from sa and i have a touch pro 2 and i am very very excited i got it now for 3 weeks i love it it has all the specs that i need for my everyday living good work htc great superb phone
Alright, so I moved from my rock solid Black Berry to the gadget packed HTC TP2. The phone is nice with lots of features etc. and I am quite ok with the size of it. However, there is one HUGE PROBLEM - the phone runs on windows. Believe me, it is just a bad as any other Microsoft operation system in the market. Slow, unstable, and of course it has the well know feature, "We are sorry but there was an unexpected problem in the .exe file and the phone needs to restart."
Are you kidding me?
I am forced to have a windows based phone due to the Microsoft Exchange Server (only was to get my corporate email). If it wasn't for that, then I would never want to owe this phone. Sorry HTC, your phone is great and all but come on, get your partner to make a workable operation system once and for all.
does anyone know how to customize the alarm clock so that i can set it to ring at the ringtone that i want to
The HTC TOUCH PRO 2 for sprint has GPS, voice search, windows, touch screen isn't nearly as responsive as I would like. you have to press hard, this sometimes opens programs as you scroll that you don't want open. That's very annoying and there is no quick back button so you have to start over. This sucks. I haven't found a solution to this. Good luck!
Had the phone for a while, very nice albeit heavy.
Only thing I would warn is some models have a slight gap between the screen and slide out keyboard...this gap is a defect that casues the screen to 'wobble' when open,,, if you get this reqturn for a new one...I did and happy with repalcement
Anyone know how to fix the SMTP sever error when you are running WM 6.1 AKU 18.104.22.168 ROM or WM 6.1 AKU 1.4 ROM? I know Microsoft has a fix but if you are running the roms above it does not work.
Thanks in advance?

Anthony, 28 Oct 2009The official window mobile 6.5 update is out on the HTC Europe site for this phone. I emailed the HTC website and they said it wont work unless your in Europe as they have different rom upgrades, or something like that. they also said in Australia they should have the wm 6.5 update nov-dec time.
There is FM radio on the touch pro 2 WM6.1. google: HTC_Rhodium/FM_Radio. WM6.5 have FM software.
Touch Pro2 User, 27 Oct 2009Dear Touch Pro2 users, can you tell me how to enable the radio? Thanks in advance.there is no radio on the touch pro 2, only on the touch pro aka fuze :(
