T-Mobile HD2 Sold Out?

soldout

Update: Looks like there are still some stores with devices on hand, but it’s certainly moving quickly so you better act fast!

Word coming down from all sources is that the HTC HD2 is sold out across the board in retail stores. You might have some luck if you call around but as we hear it, it’s sold out, sold out, sold out.  We’ll update this as we learn more!

    I got home from work at 5pm and i called tmobile…i had no problem getting one…i won’t have it til friday but still…that might be an option if you can’t find one it stores…if you have AAA ask them about the discount…it’s nice!

    I was first in line at the mall in Indianapolis. Lol, One guy showed up besides me while I was there, I was shocked. I figured there’d be at least a few people. Must not be many phone junkies here, Lol. Seriously I have owned a ton of phones and I LOVE THIS PHONE!! Please exuse my enthusiasm but the HD2 is awsome!!!

  • thechemist

    I got to my tmobile store in Wichita, Ks at 10 after 9am. I was 6th in line. I bought two, the 6 people in front of me got one, and the guy behind me got one. 8 in less than 30 minutes of opening. They said they got 20 in, which was unusual.

  • wojax2

    just got mine!! haven’t even opened it yet..well ,here it goes!!

  • manushka

    I gots mine phones early this morning. The Tmo rep was awsome and fun. They only had 6! I was 2nd in line, chatted with a kid in line and got them.

  • Jonathan

    I went to 4 different stores, 2 of which I had to wait over 45 minutes but I thankfully have my hands on this magnificent piece of hardware. Only thing is… It’s gorgeous but kinda boring. :-(

  • Jshin

    Had to order mine at lunch today from CC. Good news is somehow I was given the full discount even though I just purchased my TP2 5 months ago. =) So although I am almost devastated I don’t have one in my hand, connected to DM while carousing XDA and flashing the newest Energy Rom, I know I will be doing just this on Saturday (hopefully Friday) =)

    Oh BTW if you didn’t get the chance to get the HD2 and have a TP2 or similar powered WM devise, you can go to Xda and get mobi tv and the blockbuster app and install on your phone. My TP2 has both these apps currently. – Soon to be the wifeys TP2 =)

    • Kevin

      @Jshin

      You will actually have to wait a little longer to flash the latest Energy Rom unfortunately. Well, safely at least. There is no HSPL available yet for the US tmo version :( and while you can still use an SSPL, you may want to wait for the HSPL to be available. I know I am.

    i cant find the post but someone was having issues with importing sim contacts… you hit start goto the calls folder and click the sim manager. hit menu select all then hit menu save to contacts.

    • Johnny

      easier way is just go to people tab, bottom left hit all people, hit menu and scroll down to import SIM contacts. and thats it.

  • jhollin1138

    My local store said they had 20 when they opened today. I picked up lucky number 13 at around 7:30p. Once I get the kids to bed, I’ll finally be able to play with it.

  • NEXUS ONE USER

    Its official I got the last HD2 in Kansas City!!!!

  • Tony

    Accidentally reformatted by mirco sd card and lost transformers movies. anyone know how to get them back?

    • john

      call customer care and tell them that the phone is not recognizing the sd card at all. tell them that your camera doesn’t recognize it either. they’ll send a new one with the content on it to you.

      • ohheelno

        So basically lie? Wow.

      • Marilyn Monroe

        Hey John….no we wont so dont call us

      • Kevin

        Yeah, not cool. Just dont format your sd card. Too late for Tony I guess. Someone nice can probably send the files over to you. Its not just the transformers movies, but the games and app information as well that comes on the card that you’ll need. None of it is write protected either.

      • Big D

        You can get a dvd copy software and convert any movie to play on the HD2.. I have the software, and I’ve converted some of my DVD’s to play on my HD2. I have the UK version.. Been using it since Nov. 09… Loaded cust ROM (Miri from XDA) on mines… A cust ROM will take your phone to a whole new level……….

      • Will

        Nope, Microsd card is covered by HTC, they will handle any defective memory cards.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Go into a local store and tell them what happened. They will give you a new one if they have it.

      Otherwise try this FREE file recovery program, it got top marks.

      http://www.piriform.com/recuva

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Oh, and don’t write to the card. If you do the files may write over the movie files and make them unrecoverable.

    • Marilyn Monroe

      you cant get it back. When its gone its just gone

      • DavidB

        I love noobs and their formatting advice. I’ve been computer tech and builder for over 10 years, and have had more card issues than I can count. All formatting does is wipe the TOC clean on the card, which makes the system THINK it’s an empty card. A full format (what is called a low level format) of a 16Gb card would take quite a while, probably on the order of 30 to 45 minutes, and is nearly impossible to achieve with standard formatting instructions. Anything quicker than that and all the data is still there.

        Nevertheless, how does ANYONE accidentally format a card? You’d have to ignore all the warning flags that pop-up. Something tells me somebody wants a free 16gb card.

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        David B I was wondering that too, how did he accidentally format? That would have required his removing the card, putting it into a reader, inserting it into a PC USB port, then opening Explorer, right clicking properties then selecting “Format.”

        That’s a lot of maneuvering for something to be an accident and begs the question “Why on a new HD2 was he fooling with the chip?”

        Could be right, he is looking for a free extra chip. But if that was the case, he would have to exchange it, so that seems a futile exercise.

        Who knows… the whole thing is goofy.

  • Jshin

    As when you reformat anything, any and all data is lost forever =(

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Not necessarily, depends on what kind of formatting was done. If it was not a security grade format, then all his reformat did was delete the directory, the data is intact.

      If he has not rewritten data over the movie files, then it is also still intact.

      All of the above is especially true if he used the Windows formater, on the “Quick Format” setting.

  • Manny

    Just got mine and I love it, if you have any doubts, don’t you will love the phone. When I was getting it, a guy saw it and was very interested in it and asked me about it (I don’t even work there :D) he had an iPhone. Im sure T-Mobile could have sold millions of these if they had advertised it.

  • PHONE FREAK

    IM SO UPSET! I was home at 12:30 and was ready to go buy one, but something about my bank wasn’t done processing so I couldn’t purchase anything until after 5. At 4:55 pm I was at the store, and the rep tells me they were sold out since 3:30. Now I have to wait till next week to get one! All these weeks are adding up. I cant take it anymore!!!

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      I know the pain. Sorry for the problems, really.

      Can’t you order it over the phone?

  • jose

    i tried ordering one and the earliest id get it is NEXT wednesday! and thats with the express shipping. so aparently theyre gonna have a shortage.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Well, that’s precisely why I stayed up until 3:00 a.m. PDT so I could call CC when they opened at 6:00 a.m. EDT. I did not want to miss out.

      And like I said elsewhere, USPS has for the last five or more phone orders always got me the phone by Friday or Saturday (in other words two to three days from the order date).

      That’s because T-Mobile does also use the USPS to mail phones. And they use Priority Mail which is two to three day delivery. (This even though the CSR will say seven to ten day delivery time so to cut down on the “Where’s my new phone?” calls to customer service.)

    My wife has to wait until next week. I’m still waiting for PR 1.2……

  • gargoyle999

    how do you remove an icon from the start screen?

    • Jdzzz

      hit menu on the home screen and select remove quick links

      • gargoyle999

        It’s not a quick link. It’s among the icons that show when you hit the Windows button at the bottom of the phone. (middle one). Doesn’t seem to be a way to remove or hide them.

    • Bdar

      I think your referring to the installed programs, I haven’t tried on mine, but you may have to delete the program to get rid of the icon.

    • Ktwist

      Long press the icon you want to remove and drag it to the bottom of the phone. It will put it back in the programs drawer. Then click the empty box to replace it with a different program or shortcut.

    • Ricardo

      Long press and remove it

      • DotNetCoderAZ

        Hey Ricardo, did you get a custom ROM or TomTom loaded? Did you try Waze yet?! OMG!!! 10x faster and more responsive than on my TP2!

    • gargoyle999

      Thanks everyone, but what you are talking about is removing an icon from the quick links. I’m talking about the icons that show when you hit the Windows button on the phone.

      I found the answer though. Use File Explorer to go into \windows\start menu\programs directory and delete the icon.

      • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

        Thanks gargoyle… I understand what you were asking, but had come to the conlusion that I could only re-order them, not remove them. Man, I forgot that File Explorer in Windows is a *REAL* file explorer (including device system folders) and not some lame Memory Card viewer like Android!! Oh how I missed WinMo!!!

      • gargoyle999

        Exactly! I’m just getting used to Windows Mobile. Only had a BB Curve before. I’m liking that I can just use explorer to remove files or copy them from my pc.

  • jason m

    so i got a cliq when it first came out. I won’t be eligible for an upgrade..anyone know any tricks of the trade to get one at full discount rate?

    • marcus

      I got the cliq to in november but for some reason I was eligible for a full upgrade…but ive been with tmobile for about 5 years so i dont know if that had something to do with it

    • Davidohio

      Nope you are out of luck

  • justme

    Let’s see i got up at 830 this am.I left the house by 930am,got to the local tmo store.Walked through the at 10 am..There WAS NO LINE and I had mine by 1030 am..Its so sweet…..

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      You should say where you are so your post has some meaning to it.

      I am sure some towns and cities don’t have any interest in the HD2. It’s only the big cities where there’s a high likelihood of people who hang in here or on the Net might venture into a store.

      I am in San Francisco. Tomorrow I will go into a store and ask how sales went.

      When I ordered mine over the phone at 3:00 a.m. PDT, the sales reps said I was her second call and that the first call was someone buying an HD2 too.

      When I called an hour later to fix an issue, the second rep told me that the HD2 was selling fast and she predicted it would be back-ordered by the end of the day if not sooner.

      Someone can call 611 and see what is its status. I am tired of calling T-Mobile otherwise I’d do it.

      • DotNetCoderAZ

        If it helps, here in Phoenix, nearly every unit is gone (I’ve called around to about 4 different TMO stores and about 6 Radio Shacks and 3 Best Buy stores). There was one store (way out in the west valley, A.K.A. BFE) that had 2 units left as of 8PM. I’m pretty sure those are gone now too.

        I’m still very, very surprised that there weren’t more units allocated for launch. To me, the 15 or 20 that most stores got was purely a teaser.

  • Mike V

    i got the second to last one at my local Tmo store. This phone is sick!!!!

  • Jshin

    Got the TP2 about 5 months ago and they gave me the full discount. I also have been with them for over 6 years so maybe they hooked it up =)

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      You are a lucky dog. No, strike that. You are a dog.

  • kevin

    Just picked up the HD2 great hardware! Win mobile wow it sucks balls! Going back to my Nexus. I wanted the big screen but win mobile feels so old and out of date. Just cant deal with it. I always had win until the nexus, no wonder microsoft phone sales suck so bad…

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Yeah right. You didn’t buy an HD2. Quit posting lies.

      Who buys an HD2 then a few minutes later says the phone sucks. What, you didn’t do any research or know a thing about WinMo. Besides, HTC Sense is the real “daily OS” on the HD2, not WinMo.

      You are an Android fanboy who just wanted to take a crap on this thread. You are probably JustSumDud posting with one of his many names.

      If you did buy an HD2 and so quickly decided it “sucks balls” (your words) then it’s you who su…

      Shame on you for peeing on everyone’s excitement in here.

    • mrkhan

      troll much? you don’t have an HD2 and we all know it, android fanboy. have fun dropping calls with the N1.

    • Tig

      Awesome story bro

  • lady lucky

    well i just got mind at wal-mart for 148.99 today and they only had three in stock so try wal-mart they might have it

  • harvey

    this phone is badass…. maybe not a big deal to some but i am posting this from my phone and u love it.

    • harvey

      sorry i am a little geeked about reading the comment that i left using my phone on my laptop.

      =)

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Harvey, please correct your statement. This IS A BIG DEAL!

      The HD2 configured by T-Mobile is a bad ass phone. Take it from someone who has had every hot phone imaginable (except the iPhone, which I consider junk).

      But my opinion may be biased since I recall the days when paying $450 for a Motorola Vader phone whose only feature was that it was the smallest phone at the time.

      Now look what $450 buys. That’s why you don’t ever see me complaining about prices. Heck, the HD2 without all the stuff going on with the competition and Microsoft would be a bargain at $700.

      I remember in 2002 paying $650 for a Toshiba 2032SP PDA cell phone, that had a touchscreen only interface. That’s about $835 in today’s dollars.

      And people are forgetting to add the value of the included 16GB chip, about $40. And if one likes the Transformer movies, those two DVDs would cost about $12 each. So that’s another $25. So the phone is actually priced about $390-$400.

  • JBLmobileG1

    WTH is up with Tmobile!? I am so frickin pissed right now! I have been with them since 2004 have this crappy G1 since launch… should be able to get a full upgrade discount on a smartphone and they show me on their website that it will cost me $300+ for an HD2. Funny thing is I called Tmobile showing interest in upgrading my line. On top of all this when I found out Tmobile was letting people upgrade at 12 months for a smartphone I went online and the MyTouch 3G 3.5 was only $149… I look at it today and its $263! What BS! How does Tmobile expect to keep customers if they are ripping them off? Anyone else run into this problem? I am two seconds away from calling them up and asking them what the H*ll is up.

    • jjmaddog

      hey if you really want to upgrade and get a cheap price dial 611 talk to the representative the first one tell them you want the upgrade let them give you a price and then ask for customer loyalty and tell them your dilemma how it has been in the past and how you you dont think its right be calm at all times and they will definitely give you full upgrade eligibility

    • jrod

      dude don’t do stuff online…pick up your phone and call CC or go to your local tmo store!!!!!!! It is probably a glitch in the system as things can happen…

    • Jesse

      Prices are always subject to change. T-mobile actually just changed the upgrading system today. So there are different qualifications to be eligible for full discount. They were offering full discount there for awhile between 12-22 months and now its changed as of today.

      • Marilyn Monroe

        EMPLOYEE….SO WHAT CALLER CENTER ARE YOU AT????? LOL

    • Arghhh

      I ran into a problem similar to that. I called the other day and spoke to someone who told me I was eligible for a full upgrade since i was upgrading to a smart phone. My 2 year contract was about to expire this May so I was supposed to get the hd2 for 199.99. So I walk into the store this afternoon and he tells me they ended that promotion this morning with the release of the hd2. So Instead i had to pay $244 with the $18 upgrade fee. It’s only an extra 44 bucks….but still I was kinda disappointed.

    • Gizmalien

      I didn’t call, beg, plead, threaten, or anything. Just went, stood in line for my store to open (#3 in line). Store opened at 10am, by 10:05 am, all 16 were spoken for. Got mine for $199 on upgrade from G1 I’ve had since 12/31/08. I didn’t mention the upgrade pricing, or what I saw online, just went and tried my luck, hoping that the online system was just jacked up, and it looks like I was right.

    • Dozer

      I got the same speech, online said $399 I called them on the phone and they said $399.. I went into the store, told them that I’ve had a blackberry for over a year and that I qualify for “best pricing” and they checked and said $199!! Too bad they didn’t have any HD2s….. :(

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      You have to order over the phone to make sure you get all the upgrades and discounts to which you are entitled. Don’t ever buy a phone on the Net (T-Mobile’s) The system will either be messed up and/or it does not know your particular circumstance.

      Moreover, calling in person (and keeping your cool) will sometimes get you an even better deal than what you are due per contract.

    • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

      If you had a G1 since launch, doesn’t that mean you’re still under contract until August? (unless you bought the G1 unsubsidized, which I highly doubt based on your post).

      So either wait until August and get it for $200.
      Or get the best discount pricing at $300-something.
      Or be like me and spend $450 on it (oh, suddenly $300 isn’t so bad anymore, now is it? Jerk).

      Either way, your whining sucks. When you ask them what the hell is up, be sure to jump up and down and flail your arms… maybe tell them you’re going to hold your breath until they give you an HD2.

      Look, I know people get frustrated, but one thing you always notice about EVERY complaint is these people don’t tell the full story (like how a guy under contract is complaining how he can’t get a better discount than $300… EAT ME). Its like you want to tell a half-truth, then get off on some kind of affirmation from strangers online.

      • tchez27

        future I couldn’t disagree more. I called regarding my upgrade abilities and was told a new program was rolled out in january that allowed an upgrade after 12 months as long as you were getting a smart phone. the rep never said it was temporary and subject to change. people need to be held accountable. bottom line is for those of you who were told the same thing should make them honor that. future dont be upset with someone who wants a better deal based on what they were told.I got mine for full discount because of this, that’s not bragging I just like to be given accurate information

  • skyhigh

    SOLD OUT of course, One T-Mobile location in Astoria, Queens, New York City had 5 htc hd2s…. 5 as in five!!!

  • RCornelous

    I got mine at 11:00 this morning in Raleigh, NC. Third in line! There was some type of glitch in the system that wouldn’t allow them to let me break the phone up in installments, but after the rep called CC and told them I threatened to cancel my three lines of service, all of a sudden the “glitch” was fixed. I am lovin’ this phone right now!!!

  • bsanto9

    so i was in a pissedoff mood when a tmobike rep called me stupid and Hung up on me soi called back and raised major helm but now i got.my hd2 and everythingis great

    • Marilyn Monroe

      Hey man it wasnt me. It must of been Jesse

      If a Tmobile rep called you stupid and hung up, then you must be pretty dang close. Just saying, thats a JD power approved insult

  • gargoyle999

    Why does OS version listed under Software Information show as 5.2.21889? Where does it show I have Windows Mobile 6.x?

    • Matlock

      it hows it on the boot up screen! I think the info on the software screen refers to the Sense software!

      • J-Hop2o6

        5.2 is WM6.5 core (Windows CE 5.2).. and 21889 is the build number

        on my TP2, im using WM6.5.5.. its core is still 5.2.. and its build number is 23542.. the new WP7 is based on the new core (CE 6).

    • gargoyle999

      ha ha…ok. Nothing like making it straightforward!

  • myg1

    When I. Get some money ill definately get this phone its one phone up2date that will make me jump ship from android to winmo and for those complaining about the upgrade options tmobiles not shady nor sneaky..the earlie upgrade plus after 12 months are like a promotion for a period of time..starting today its 12-17 months to get a better discount then then 18-21 to get full discount and they do have family plan upgrade options just ask

  • David

    I was first on the waiting list over 3 weeks ago, when I get rid of my two crappy defective Nexus One’s. The HD 2 is awesome!! My store in Sunnyvale CA (Silicon Valley) had 11 on hand, and sold out in less than 1 hour. My store got more than others in the area, as its one of the busiest T-Mobile stores in the San Francisco Bay/Northern California area. More are on order but won’t in till late next week!
    Suggestion: Wal-Mart is selling it for $ 148.99 for a 2 yr contract or Flex Pay agreement for SAME PRICE $ 148.99!!! Unbelievable!! As with Flex Pay there is no contract or commitment.
    If you purchase it outright, from WallyWorld its $ 500.
    Radio Shack is pricing it about the same also. Check it out people don’t give up, the device is out there!!! Its awesome!!! And beats the N1,Palm Pre, and HTC Hero and Blackberry Curve 8520 I have had recently!!

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Not to quibble, but on your list of phones the HD2 beats out, the only one I consider it really competitive with is the Nexus One. The Hero, Palm and Curve are not even close to being in the same league as the HD2.

      With Snapdragon dual core Scorpion processors, increased RAM, HDMI ports, AMOLED/HUGE displays, all appearing on this holiday’s superphones, the BlackBerries, anything with a trackball, and phones with displayes smaller than 4″ are going to be relegated to third world hand-me-down status.

      And if 4.3″ becomes the new standard for display size will be amusing to see how Apple reacts and what they come up with.

      Between the current carrier price war and new handsets, put your seatbelts on, it’s going to be a fun couple of years for consumers. (And the suffering economy added a bonus to all this, low prices for the hottest tech.)

      • DotNetCoderAZ

        “phones with displayes smaller than 4″ are going to be relegated to third world hand-me-down status.”

        LMFAO!!! Michael, that has to be one of the best predictions I have seen yet… I can only hope that one comes true… Kudos…

    • Kevin

      @ David

      Not entirely true about flexpay. There are month to month options, but there is also an annual contract option flexpay. So you can still sign a contract to get a discounted phone, but you still “prepay” for your monthly service

  • chon

    anyone know how to link your contact w/ their FB profile…with contacts on your sim card…?

    • Matlock

      you have to move the contacts from the simm to the phone’s memory, it wont work unless you do that!!

  • tmogeek

    Arrrrgggghh………..BOGO…..left the tmo store with two! WTF am I going to do with two? Now I gotta teach the little woman how to use it. Looks like migrating her from the cozy G1 to the HD2 is going to take a little work.

  • J510

    I have a nexus one and my screen broke and asurion said it would be a month to get me a new one or could by a new and they would send me a check minus the 130 deduct fee. like I have an extra 600 dollars laying around. so off I went to the mall here in Modesto Ca, where there is two corp stores in the mall and they were sold out but was told an exclusive dealer here in town had a lot went there had my money ready to go for the hd2 but then was told they were not selling it to even more plus customers till the end of the week only to new customers and 2 year upgrades and I was like what crap but just in luck was going down the road ticked and seen a repair shop for any phones and guess what for 100 dollars my nexus one is better then ever. I still wanna play with an hd2 though maybe later..
    evo 4g looks cool but sprint rather be on metro pcs and that’s saying something

    everyone enjoy your hd2′s

    • Kevin

      Sorry to hear that your screen got jacked. Nice that they were able to fix it for you. Seems crazy that some repair shop would just so happy to have a nexus one screen. I guess lucky for you they did.

      • J510

        I guess the repair shop guy ordered a screen for a repair for another customer
        and while working with the phone he fell in love with it so he bought two nexus one’s for him and his wife and he was looking into and noticed know one else had the screens in the area and since he runs a big repair shop he ordered 4 extra screens.. That’s good luck I had and to think htc wanted to charge me 225 if they did it.. lol

  • alan

    hahaha some douchebag tried to return his cliq and get an HD2 and manager said NO! douchbag called customer care trying to pretend he was important and they couldnt do squat!!!! we sold like 25 by noon so hopefully we get a lot more by friday!!! Way to go Tmo!

    • Anthony

      That’s some great customer service there…..no wonder you work in retail.

    • rjwisniewski

      Was he within his 14 day buyer’s remorse period? If you guys denied him within that period who could actually have grounds for legal action.

    • DotNetCoderAZ

      There was a guy at my local TMO in front of me that tried the same thing… claimed he was within his 60 day trial period (of course, there is no freakin’ 60 day trial period) and got all huffy and puffy when the rep told him no… I couldn’t help but smile.

  • harvey

    dude i am pissed… i can not make or receive calls on my hd2. At first I had no signal just a ” ! ” instead of bars… then I had bars but could not send and receive data or calls.

    called tmo they said since I had android data plan , that the switch to smartphone data caused this.They said it would take 2 to 48 hours. I said so you are telling me that all tmo customers that had an Android phone are going through this? She stuttered and said yes.

    hellllp… i am back to using my 29 buck nokiA from target because my HD2 is just not working

      that’s not true. i had an Android device prior to this phone and it worked fine for me. but then again, for some reason it listed that i have a blackberry curve the on tmobile website. so maybe thats why it worked for me.

      • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

        She should not have said yes, she should have said that some do and some don’t. Bad reply.

        No, I had no issues switching data plans. But the problem is they give you the disclaimer of ’2 to 48hrs’… but don’t wait 48, if its still not on today, keep calling them. I remember once (different carrier) they kept telling me the same junk “up to 48hrs”… after half a day, I really couldn’t believe the phone wasn’t activated, so called again and told “blah blah blah, you just called… blah blah blah need to wait 48hrs”… I waited ONE hour and called back and asked someone else to verify all was in order… and whaddaya know?? The original rep that helped me SCREWED UP and all those subsequent reps were lazy bastards who wanted me to wait 48hrs. The current rep fixed the error and the phone was on in a few minutes. Suffice to say, that carrier no longer exists! So don’t be afraid to call and call again.

    This is how it went for me:

    03/24/2010
    11:32 – Clocked out for “lunch”
    11:44 – Arrived at the T-Mobile store at the Miami International Mall
    11:49 – Serviced by a T-Mobile Associate
    11:55 – The HD2 Box I was to take home was presented to me
    11:58 – Charged $53.99 to my VISA checkcard
    12:13 – Clocked in from “lunch”

    03/25/2010
    09:13 – Bragged about how quickly and effortlessly I got my HD2 yesterday XD

    God I love my new HD2 and I already XDA’d some things into it X))

    • KiltDaddy

      $53.99 was your cost? Could you please give the details of your transaction?

      • Rene

        I’m on the Even More Plus plan, so I have to pay retail ($449) for the device. I also have a $600 credit under the “Equipment Installment Plan” which allows me to pay $26 a month at 0% interest – same as cash.

        That said, I paid the first month + tax as the down payment ($54) for purchase and my next $26 payment isn’t due on my account until my June bill.

  • tmoboss

    Ordered online yesterday .. but couldnt place the order until 10AM Pacific !!!
    Now, there is ABSOLUTELY no news about the status of the order. Anyone else in the
    same situation? Is there a way to track “order status” online ?
    (I know about the so called order status under support which shows you another link for UPS tracking) .. i am asking about things like “Order received .. out to warehouse .. waiting for shipper to pick up kinda status)
    Thx

    • SirMac

      I just went ahead and got mines through wirefly, tmobile didnt offer next day service and I definitely wasn’t going to wait 3+ days to get it.

  • RayLebron

    Im having trouble syncing my HD2 with my google contacts that I had in my G1. I used the link someone posted here but when i filling all my info I noticed that the password box is full of characters. Has anyone else noticed that? Also sometimes when Im writing and try to change from portrait to landscape, it gives me an SystemError.exe and asks me to send the info to Microsoft. Thanks in advance.

    • RayLebron

      Also is anyone else experiencing weak signal? Im seeing less bars in places where I used to have pretty good signal.

      • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

        “Im having trouble syncing my HD2 with my google contacts that I had in my G1. I used the link someone posted here but when i filling all my info I noticed that the password box is full of characters”
        Before or after you enter your password? Yeah, they just mask it after you enter it is all. Erase it and re-enter your password if you’re not sure.
        And you’re using Outlook/Active Sync or the standard email app? There’s a difference. With outlook, you can set it up to push the Gmail to you. Google ‘sync gmail with windows mobile’ and look for Google’s instructions. I sync’d with no problems.

        No weak signals.

      • RayLebron

        To FutureGuy: The thing is that I know for certain that the password thats in the password box is not mine cause it has more characters than my password. Everytime I delete it and write my password again, when I try to do the setup again( befause it didnt work the last time) I find the password box filled completely which is strange cause my password only takes half of the box. Honestly I dont understand whats going on. Same thing happens with my gmail account but my gmail messenger works just fine. Maybe this is to high-end for me. lol Thanks any way friend.

      • Duck Dodgers

        @RayLebron, The OS puts all those asterisks in so someone doesn’t know how many characters your password is and try to guess at it. It is a might easier to guess at a password when you know how many characters there are.

  • Doube U Dee

    Man, I LOVE this phone! I literally played with it for 3 hours when I got home after unboxing. Usually i’m on my laptop at home but just couldn’t put it down. I really need to find a case for it because i’m really nervous about dropping it or cracking the screen. Anybody know of any good cases for this phone?

  • Darsh

    I have a even more plus plan, and I went to 2 Tmo stores, and they refuse to give me the installment plan, and they want to make me pay the full price upfront, or take it with 2 year plan I was very upset, and I called the customer’s service and I was able to order mine over the phone it will take a few days to get it.
    Shame of T mobile stores

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      That’s because stores are not set up to execute the installment agreements. AFAIK only the CSRs on the phone can look at your account and then sell the phone.

      Makes sense since store CSRs don’t know much about all this stuff except how to ring up a sale on the cash register and open new accounts. Would seem near impossible to train them to competently deal with sophisticated credit transactions.

  • manushka

    OK, I’ve had mine for a day and as nice as it is I am having a shiteload of freezes and weird glitches. Probs the biggest issue I have with it is the internet.
    With my ancient Axim30 I go to CNN or Facebook and I get a mini version of the page on my laptop. It is the same on a friend’s Iphone; a mini webpage. When I go to CNN or Facebook with this it is not the same page.

    We’ll see after a while.

    • Tig

      If you are getting freezes – I would return it for a new one. Mine is flawless so far. I hear people complain about freezes, bad call quality and slow downs.. I don’t have anything like that. So I am inclined to think there are a few duds floating around in the first release.

      Let me tell you though – if anything like that happens to mine I will be at the tmo store requesting a new one in a heart beat.

      GL and I hope your device plays nice soon!!

  • manushka

    Oh and what is with these weak signals?! I keeps going back and forth between 3G and Edge like a pendulum.

  • JBLmobileG1

    The reason why I am pissed is because after I called Tmobile mentioning I was interested in upgrading my phone.. the next thing you know I goto Tmobile.com and the prices went up. The MyTouch 3G with the 3.5 jack went from $149 to $263. And as for the prices being cheaper on the phone… I asked about the Cliq Xt before I looked at the site and he quoted me $189… well I goto the site and it is $189. So how is this a FULL discount? I even mentioned at my work its $48.88 with a 2yr new/upgrade conract although we can’t offer the early FULL discount upgrade into our system. So I may be crying but you know its not fair that Tmobile offers you one price then jacks it up over $100. The only phones I saw that were even close to the $100 was a cheap candy bar stye Nokia for $20. Its basically their cheap pre paid (only good for a spare) phone.

  • gargoyle999

    Is GoGo preinstalled on the phone? I can’t find an icon for it?

    • gargoyle999

      Nevermind! Found it under the Internet tab.

  • Michael

    I thought this has Swype Keyboard Feature. Doesn’t anybody know where is at?

    • gargoyle999

      you hit the triangle next to the little keyboard at the bottom of the screen. It brings up options to choose swype, full qwerty, , compact qwerty or phone keypad.

    • NCole

      Hey Micheal, you go into the keyboard click the triangle on the right side and pick swype:)

      • Michael

        Omg. guys, i think i dont have the swype feature..could that be? i dont know where is at

      • Michael

        I found it.. Thanks

  • gargoyle999

    battery life is not very good. Full charge overnight and I’m down to 50% after a couple hours.

    Need to get some spares, that’s for sure!

    • Shayne Carlos

      did you let the battery fully drain too the point the phone will no longer power on then LEAVE THE PHONE OFF and charge the battery COMPLETELY, try that 2 or 3 times…this should be doone with any new cell phone battery. so use a back up phone while your phone is charging or something

    • Tig

      If you wanted good battery life – you most certainly bought the wrong phone.

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        On battery life complaints: All smartphones have generated complaints about short battery life. There’s the same complaints, millions of them: “battery life is poor, please, more battery life.”

        Does anyone think that the carriers and manufacturers are unaware about this issue? Come on, if there was a way to make a smartphone with great battery life, someone would make it and it would be the first thing mentioned in an ad, “REVOLUTIONARY BATTERY LIFE!”

        The fact is the manufacturers are stuck between a rock and a hard place. People want small smartphones and great battery life. But current battery technology prohibits it.

        The ONLY thing that can increase battery life if to make B I G G E R batteries. But consumers don’t want that. (Check out the comments on YouTube extended battery videos. Most people will say “That’s ugly huge dude.”)

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19DionDFcmY

        Fact is, phones can only be so big before consumers reject the phone as being too large. (On the extended battery reviews I posted for my Pearl, Curve, G1 and Touch Pro2 I would get comments like “Oh, that’s too big, oh that’s butt ugly with that big battery. I am not putting that on my phone.”) That’s one’s choice, but don’t complain about battery life.

        So why the battery life issue? Well look at what people do with their smartphones while expecting or demanding great battery power:

        Phone calls;

        Net access;

        Playing media (When playing a movie that drains a battery in about two hours);

        WiFi;

        Bluetooth;

        Playing games;

        E-mail and texting;

        And on top of that a huge 4.3″ backlit display (“backlit” means when the display is on there’s a “flashlight” on, in the background).

        The best way to deal with it is to get an extended battery.

    • gargoyle999

      I already ordered 3 regular spares and one extended battery (with kickstand) and a charger.

      I wasn’t really complaining. Just sayin’…

  • lebron1189

    yea my phone keeps switching from the 3g to edge but its still working fine. oh except – when I go to my albums my phone like starts running slow so I have to turn it off then back on again. its kinda making me mad.

  • calvin

    Can anyone tell me if there is a way to move my music from itunes to windo
    ws media player. Also can you use the hd2 as a modem for a computer i am using a web connect now and was wondering if i could save some money and just use this phone.

    • J510

      Download double twist syncs all of your itunes incld playlist then connect your hd2 and the rest is history and your good to go
