    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Will be getting mine soon (when T-Mobile get more in stock, apparantly they were only delivered ~200 this morning at 8:30 and they were all gone by about 8:45 - although I don't know how true this is).

    I decided not to go with the iPhone after all, I don't like the lack of a lot of things on there just to get a few fancy apps... Plus the longer I can go without owning an Apple product, the happier I will be.

    You will not regret getting the HD2. Awesome phone, and the rumours are getting stronger that HTC will release an official upgrade to windows mobile 7 next year.
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    Hi recoil, quite abit - maybe more than I really need and use. I'm on Solo fixed 35. So that's give me 1800 mins to use, (any network, anytime), unlimited text & data. 35 quid a month.

    IF I do use up all the mins, I can top it up like a regular pay as you go.

    Main attraction for me is that I only need to give 30 days notice to get it cut, and the amount of mins.

    Bad side, it's a sim only plan. So I had to pay 500 quid for the HTC HD2.

    same as difference between vista and windows 7.

    The HD is a great phone that has a few bugs. The HD2 has a bigger capacitive screen(means you don't need to use your fingernail, can just use your finger(and it means it's upgradeable to windows mobile 7 next year).

    Hardware side, the screen size and type are the main differences. It also has a better G sensor and a motion sensor(turns the screen off when near your ear, turns it on when you take it out of your pocket and you can also reject a call by turning it facedown.

    Software side, it runs windows 6.5(which the original HD can run, but comes with 6.1). It also has the new HTC sense, which is the same as on the Hero phone.

    Both phones are good, if you can get the HD2, get it, it's more futureproof and the screensize is great.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    No problems here but then again it depends what you use it for..

    If you have it on and using the wifi all day or the GPS or something else then it'll drain the battery, problem is by default the task list button at the top isnt there anymore so people dont know if they have apps running in the background, Google Maps, specifically the Latitude part running in the background all day will kill your battery as it uses GPS to report your location..

    Yeah I nearly did that (but on the 20/month 1month notice deal), but Tmobile offered me a crazy deal.

    I was on a 35/month contract, asked for my PAC. They offered me the phone for free on a £15 a month contract for 2 years. I had to double take given buying the phone was more that the £360 that would cost.

    In the end I took the bait - £20/month in the end including unlimited internet (300 min, unlimited texts). Ordered on thursday last week, arrived yesterday (monday).

    There is a cab from dutty on on XDA which restores the task list button. Couldn't do without it.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Looks like I'm probably getting this instead of the Xperia X2, which i believe might not even get released next year at the way Sony Ericsson are going.

    Tried to ring o2 retentions today but after being on hold for 20 minutes I was told their computers were down anyway and i'd have to ring back tomorrow after 2pm...

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Now that the wow factor has worn off and i'm not pulling out the phone every second of the day, my battery life is waay better... and it must of had time to "wear in", if that makes sense? after a few full discharges/charges.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    mine is lasting 3-4 days at the moment with the odd youtube usage etc. Since I've charged and fully discharged it 3 times, battery is working well. I've also gotten used to the capacitive screen and am typing quite quickly now. Am still loving the phone as much as I ever was.

    Hahahaha....oldest trick in the book - they all do that now. You'd be amazed at the number of people who don't get round to ringing back the next day....quick and easy retention.
