HTC HD2 for T-Mobile Review
0. phoneArena 26 Apr 2010, 08:42 posted on
At long last, one of the greatest Windows Mobile powered devices to have ever been conceived has finally touched down to an awaiting market that has been starved from experiencing a truly mammoth smartphone. T-Mobile has been fortunate enough to lay claim to possibly one of the last great Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones of our time - the HTC HD2...

Wow. I can't believe this review was published. I mean, great phone, but the article reads like a 7 year old wrote it. Misspellings are one thing, but the run on sentences, wrong words, poor grammar...just awful to read.

You're a real idiot. Who cares how other people type? Mostly people who wish people thought they were smart. Go back to school where spelling and grammar matter dousche.

Alas, it is always the backwoods uneducated hicks that insist that spelling and grammar don't matter. When you fail at English, you leave the perception that your intelligence lacks, and your credibility falters as a result. When you are a professional business and/or blog, it is especially noticeable. Your statement telling tedkord to go back to school further highlights your disdain for actual education, as well as your need for it. And it's spelled "douche."

hahaha, moron, you spelled douche incorrectly. You go back to school, maybe you can learn/relearn how important grammar and writing is.

The idiot is you and perhaps you are not out of elementary school yet. If there is something important is to speak and write in an elegant and simple manner, attributes that you do not have.

The T-Mobile (US) version of the HD2 is NOT "exactly like the european version in every way"....the US model has much more ROM memory available, and the shell is 1.5mm taller than the euro model, which can obviously make a big difference when it comes to cases, mounts, and other accessories.

Great phone but T-mobile's 3G network sucks! I just returned my phone back to T-mobile - the phone was not able to keep with simple e-mail, internet browsing or weather updates! The data connection was turning off all the time, I had to constantly reset it so I can view a web site or send/recieve an e-mail. It's a shame that T-Mobile would not fix it's network.

I actually don't have any real problems with t-mobile's data network. Web pages and emails work fine, no need to reset any data. I think the phone is the problem. I've used tmobile's 3g data with the g1, the cliq, my nokia n900, EDGE data with my n900 and cliq and an E71, and regular GPRS data with a Sony Ericsson m600i and never had a data reset problem. May be the phone. T-Mobile 3g coverage does suck balls outside of major metropolitan areas though.

I bought a total of 4 phones and they all did that at various times, then I looked online for help and found out that it is a common issue with T-mobile! I called cust. support and was told that there is no solution!!! Hello AT&T!

It just depends on where you live. My phone is PERFECT!

So you ditched T-Mobile for at&t. Good luck.

This just in, HTC HD2 is now BOGO at T-Mobile.. This phone must not meeting sales expectations.
11. behold--me (Posts: 650; Member since: 22 Jun 2009)
Uhhh, where the HELL have you been for the past month and a half?!?!?! The HD2 has been selling like crazy. They can't even keep it in stock enough. And it's called promtional, or advertisement. Duh.

too bad it still runs windows mobile and doesnt have half the specs of the EVO, this phone will bow to the android powered giant of the EVO
25. justdroppingby (unregistered)
Yeah... The only thing better on the EVO is the camera. All the other specs of the HD2 are better. Just saying.

(That's according to the stats on this website, by the way.)

Cool phone but a little to big for my taste. Its like between a tablet and a normal cell phone.

It is funny to hear/read about the whinings of people on how a phone or network sucks. EVERY phone has at least 0.1% chance of malfunctioning/being defective. It happens. It does not mean the phone sucks. Obviously, this is the greatest WINDOWS phone of all time. Wish it had ANDROID 2.1 instead....hmmm, I wonder if it could be done. Also, every network has issues somewhere in the U.S. It happens, oh well. Cell phones and providers are not perfect. In the terms and conditions of each prospective carrier lies the writing that indicates that basically service is not guaranteed to work at all times. Luckily, where I live all 4 major carriers work great, and I live in a town of under 100k people.

I would think the 1GHZ processor would account for what normally is a lot of lag and sluggishness with prior WinMo phones and alleviate that issue. HD2 is def. a nice device...just wonder how it does data-wise in TMobile's network. Wish it would make its way over to VZW's network...but I'm sure HTC is workin on another late/great device that will top the HD2. The Incredible is nice...but that 4.3" screen and just the design of the phone sure does make a diff. Unless the EVO will hit VZW later then I would be content with that...kudos Sprint, ya'll finally wakin up. Wishful thinkin tho...

I am so disappointed with this phone. I have had to get it replaced 4 times in the 2 months that I have had it. It constantly freezes and is very slow. My son's is exactly the same way.
24. Jodie64 (unregistered)
Were you able to change it for a different phone (of your choose)? I am having the exact problem, but with each new HD2, im getting a whole new set of problems.
28. customized hd2 (unregistered)
I had the same problems with mine at first, did some reading and got to a site called xdadevelopers wow is all I can say now. Went from wanting to exchange to not wanting to put down. This site really gives you a lot of options.http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=732380

This phone SUCKS!!!! I have only had it for 2 months and have had to replace it 4 times already. The speaker on it works when ever it wants to, it constantly freezes, you get voicemails 3 weeks later when you turn the phone off and back on then it alerts you. At first I thought it was just a glinch but after having the sam problem with 4 diffrent phones and have heard of other people withthe same problem I soon reilazed windows mobile SUCKS!!. I called tmobile to see what my options where and they were more then happy to replace my 450.00 phone with a 3 year old out dated phone that was worth 100.00 and told me that was my only option and to have a good day. with that being said I will be going back to sprint where I never had these problems.

great input from the HTC HD2, i am a Microsoft pro. i have worked with windows for a long time. This pone is a great gadget to have though it has some setbacks if you are do a lot more than just talking on it. 1-battery life does not last long when on the web 2- It freezes up without any reason 3-updates are sometimes slower I personally prefer the vibrant better, since android is more efficient.by the way i have the HTC, the vibrant and i also have the i phone 4 so i know a bit about all these phones. thanks blessed

Well I finally got around to getting the Hd 2 phone and it works alright, for now. I have heard some horror stories about it freezing up and doing things cell phones aren't supposed to do. anyway i have one and it's inusred so here goes.
