    Was wondering when we would get a new headline to start posting on!

  • gargoyle999

    And it’s only 4 1/2 days remaining. :)

  • steve

    Watched this last night…..they did a great job. It’s gonna cost me around $80 to walk out the door with one of these babies on wednesday. Cant wait….

    • Oce

      $80! How!

      • 2FR35H

        employee discount maybe? I can only imagine a screen protector for a phone that big is gonna be expensive.

      • Greg

        You can pay a smaller fee upfront an then pay the remainder over 3 months that they add right on to your bill. I love Tmo! Gives phones to the poor like me who cant always afford to pay everything up front. But on a 200.00 phone, like when i paid for my g1 it cost 35 out the door… The guy was trying to get me the phone that day and I didnt have quite enough and he actually took the taxes off it too. Again, this is why I’m with Tmo, awesome customer support.

  • poopman

    how does the mobitv work? do you have to pay to watch or is it free?

    • ahh

      He first 30 or some days are free then there’s a fee

    • rjwisniewski

      Free for the first 30 days.

    • Greg

      It is $10 a month after first trial period.

  • David

    @poopman from what i was hearing and reading its gonna cost for mobitv but its like 10.00 a month that gets billed to your tmobile bill and if im wrong im sorry thats just from what i been reading n hearing

  • CONFUSED

    MOBITV TYPICALLY COST AROUND $10 MONTH

  • Steph

    This phone is amazing! You really have to see it in person to appreciate it! I got to use this phone and I fell in luv!

  • noImpressed

    Meh…
    An extra $30/month for internet just for your phone seem outrageous. That is an extra $360 a year just to have a cool phone.

    • jon

      It’s actually an extra $360 per year to have the internet on your phone.
      Having the most badass phone on the planet is just a bonus.

    • poopman

      i know exactly how you feel, i spend $20 bucks a month for internet at home and i gotta spend $30 bucks for my phone.

    • Greg

      You can use your phone as wireless router tho, So if your out and have your laptop, you can connect to the internet. +++

    • Steve

      I agree with you. $30 bucks per line per month is a lot to spend considering home internet plans. (I’ve got a family so I’d be paying $90 a month instead of $30 and hooking up wifi)

      I realize that the future is wireless internet but until the cost vs. benefit comes in a little better so I can REPLACE comcast with full tethering capabilities and a higher data limit (10 gig on tmobile v.s. 250 for comcast) I’ve got to pass…..although it is getting very, very, hard with this kind of equipment rolling out to pass up this temptation :)

  • Jeff

    I called the store yesterday. They’re supposed to be holding one for me, but I’m going to be waiting on them to unlock the door. I keep fantising that they will call me a couple of days early and tell me to come on in and pick it up. Hey, a guy can dream. Anyway, just a few more days! Should fly by.

  • Hawarr

    He said 576 megs of RAM at 10:40 in the vid, doesn’t it have 1 gig of RAM?

    • toxtrepla

      I believe you mean 1GB of ROM.

    • TehAndroid

      Its a 1ghz processor thats what you are thinking of

    • Hawarr

      @Duck Dodgers – Thanks for clearing that up for me!

  • Jose

    wow this video made me wanna get this phone even more cant wait im gonna be the first in line no lie lol

  • HD2 HOTNESS

    All I know is that I will be waiting outside BEFORE the employees even get to the store. Can’t wait to buy this beautiful beast of a phone. I can’t wait to show this thing off. The guys at work are waiting for me to buy it so they can drool….I mean so they can check it out. Lol. I already see them wanting to get one. I am off Wed so I will get this thing at 9:00 a.m EST. Wooo Hoo!

  • Travis

    It looks almost like the the water sensor is red on the phone in the video.

    • jon

      If you mean the little red dot under the battery cover, that would be the soft reset button.

  • NEXUS ONE USER

    Went to the store today and played with it. Simply amazing!!!

    • wojax2

      played with the dummy unit last week and all i kept hearing from the sales rep was …bla bla..nexus one is way better..bla bla….then yesterday i went in and the same rep said” why do you want one,get an nexus one’ then he handed me the retail unit ,then turned the phone on -still talking bout the nexus one. I was leaning toward the nexus a little ,then all of a sudden ,the t-mobile
      ‘stick together “slogan popped on the screen and…after playing with the phone ;taking pictures,browsing the internet-all i wanted to do(even tough being a god fearing man) was just slap this idiot for suggesting the nexus one over this phone.Let me put it to you like this-I have an unlocked iphone i’ve been using for over a year.I’ve had the pleasure of playing with a variety of different phones,palm pre,nexus one,moto droid etc..I have never played with a phone this caliber,period!I don’t care if this phone never gets wp7series, this is the best phone as far as hardware smoothness,responsiveness,picture quality i have ever played with. I dont care what phone comes out within the next year, this phone is simply a work of art..

      • twitch110

        I enjoyed your testimony. It hit me right in the heart. So psyched for this phone.

      • Vinny

        I agree 100% wojax2! I played with this phone for about 45 min the other day in the Tmo store. It is simply amazing. Well built and you don’t even notice WinMO with the Sense UI. I was going to wait for a possible HTC Desire release, but using the HD2 made up my mind. I will have this phone on Wed morning.

  • Nain

    there actually is a pre order right?? because i went to the tmo store yesterday and i asked if there were any pre orders, he gave me a sheet of paper and wrote down my name and number, there were about 15 people ahead of me on the sheet. and on the top it said “tmobile HTC HD2 pre order”, i asked him how it works and he just said everyone who writes there name down will be “garunteed” an HD2, first shipment on the 24th, and second shipment “two or 3 days later” he said. but everyone who listed there name will be garunteed a phone.. i didnt have to put a downpayment either. so im guessing i dont have to skip school to get it. but im still going to the tmo store at 10a.m. just to make sure i get mine,

    you really have to see this phone in person, its not as “big” as it seems to be in the videos, but surprisingly thin…4 and a half more days >.<

    i smell a VERy long week coming =/

    • Joe Pa

      That is only store specific. ….all the stores I have spoken too are selling them on a first come first serve basis. No lists, whoever is there first gets them.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      That’s not a “pre-order.” The store is simply keeping a list of people who want it.

      Generally pre-order is allowing you to order the phone early, before everyone else. You sometimes actually buy it and it’s sent to you when the product goes public. Pre-order is better than a list because you have actually bought the item and there’s less chance for mistakes.

      The other kind of preorder is actually buying it and getting the item before its debut date.

      It does not appear there’s a pre-order of any type on this phone. :(

      I am still hoping T-Mo contacts people who signed up on the T-Mo page to be notified about the HD2. That page asked if we were existing customers so maybe that means special consideration over others.

      But seeing how this phone has been handled so far I suspect that page meant nothing. The phone will go on sale on March 24 without any fanfare. And after I bought the HD2 I will get a notice from T-Mo saying the HD2 is now available. ;)

      • Ktwist

        @ItsMichaelNotMike

        Your right, it’s not a pre-order sheet. It’s just a sheet for us to keep track of who we talk to about this phone. We are supposed to call these people the day it comes out to increase our post paid goals and upgrades. You are not guaranteed this phone by signing up. Oh and why didn’t this review cover anything no one has seen? This fool didn’t even show the swype keyboard and how much BIGGER this qwerty board is than the htc qwerty. Not too mention the out of the box tether capabilities including making the phone a mobile hotspot for multiple computers using bluetooth and wifi? This phone is legit and I would trade any Android phone that T-Mobile sells for this phone. Oh and the two internet browsers go like this, internet explorer comes with flash player built in but no multi-touch. Also, I can’t figure out how to delete the cookies or history in internet explorer either? No menu button I could find for this if anyone knows? The Opera browser on the other hand, supports multi-touch pinch to zoom but no flash player. The clear cache and history is easy to find in this browser. A week with this device, the gel skin that comes out of the box grabs wayyyy to much lint if you put this baby in your pocket. Youtube is veryyyy slow at loading pages. I find this to be the case for many windows devices but I think the hd2 loads HD quality first, so maybe thats it? My cliq loads this wayyyy faster but maybe in a lower quality, i’m not really sure. Battery life is okay if you don’t use the device that much, long stand by time. If you use it to browse the internet or multimedia stuff, you get about as much time as a mytouch or g1 from what I can tell. Still, this phone is extremely fast, amazing display, great qwerty keyboard options, amazing camera, beautiful sense UI, mini computer for your hands to enjoy:) Like I said, I have a cliq and will be selling that shit on ebay quite soon. Oh and the facebook app sucks for this, better just loading the actual site from Opera or Explorer. That’s all I can think for now, any question feel free to shoot me one.

      • jon

        @Ktwist

        Other than the ability to pin shortcuts to the home screen, are noticing any differences between Sense and TF3D?

        I’ve had a Pure for the last 4 months, and got tired of TF3D after a bout 3 weeks. I switched to the WinMo Titanium today screen and couldn’t be happier.
        I imagine I’ll end up doing the same with the HD2.

      • Duck Dodgers

        @Ktwist

        On my TP2 with WM 6.5 you can get to the cookies/history in WM IE to clear them by going to:

        Tap the small round icon with the 4 dots that are under lined at the lower right>
        Tap the small round icon with the 4 horz. lines>
        Scroll down to Tools, tap it>
        Tap Options >
        In this page you can edit your Home Page, Browsing History, Privacy and Security, Languages, and Other. Tap Browsing History>
        In this page, Highlight what you want to clear: Temporary Files, Cookies, or History and tap the “Clear” soft key at the lower left.

  • jtc24

    We got our demos yesterday in our store and its phenominal! I have been using android for over a year and never really liked windows mobile but this phone has changed my mind. Sense is awesome and browsing the web would be better than my laptop if it had full flash on it. This really will be the best phone out. At least for a few months haha.

  • smackiesfunkies

    Does anyone know if itll sync with google contacts?

  • InsideScoop HTCFanatic

    I’ve been playing with the unit for 2days now. the Mobi TV gets billed to your credit card not your TMo bill, the Gogo Internet for airflight is free for 6months, TeleNav is free for 60days out of the box. BBVideo is also a fee that is separate from your tmo bill. Rental expire from your handset within 24hrs. No reviewer has mentioned that music and pictures can be viewed in landscape mode. Music is like CoverFlow for Apple, you can update the cover album from within the phone. The Full version of Guitar Hero is preinstalled, along with others that you can pay for like $4.99. The phone is amazing, No video out like its’ cousin TP2 and no lag between programs whatsoever. Hope this helps everyone. Oh, it’s exclusive to Tmobile per HTC Regional Rep.

  • John

    @Steve, How is this going to cost you about $80 out the door? Just curious?

  • InsideScoop HTCFanatic

    As for synching with google contacts and calendars. You can use google synch for that since it’a windows mobile compatible.

  • steve

    I’m doing the payment plan……it’ll cost $80 on wednesday…but I’ll have to pay an extra $50 on my bill for the next 3 months.

    • http://twitter.com/ericisthename ericisthename

      is 80 the minimum you have to put down?

      • chaoscentral

        @ericisthename

        If you choose the 20 month payment option, its 1st month + tax of phone down, 22.50 a month.

        It’s gonna cost me around $57 on wednesday :) maybe I’ll teck up to new hampshire to avoid the sales tax and cost me 22.50 up front :)

  • chaoscentral

    Man I can’t wait for this phone. Had my first good hands on experience with a demo unit in my local store the other day. Got to use it for a good 30 minutes just chatting with the rep about it. I must say upon first glance only 1 word came out, and that was “woah” I knew the screen was going to be large, but damn I wasn’t expecting that, not to mention the clarity of the 480×800 resolution.

    The guys down at my local store know me for the most part, I’m usually in there either checking out the new phones or buying a new phone. When I had my European Hero back in August they all rushed over to check it out, so as soon as I walked in the door they knew what I was there for.

    I watched a little of the Transformers movies, and it really is an excellent movie watching experience, you don’t need to squint to make things out on the screen like with some other smaller screened phones. Also because it is Windows Mobile, I recommend grabbing CorePlayer so you don’t ever have to convert a video again, as it plays just about every codec under the sun, I have yet to see iPhone or Android do that yet.

    The keyboard is fantastic! As a previous Hero owner, the Sense keyboard was always my favorite on Android, and the Windows Mobile version is no different. For touch typing it is fantastic, it even has the little haptic feedback you get with the hero. My second favorite keyboard happens to be Swype for one handed operation, and the cool thing is this phone comes loaded with it and works fantastic as well. The rep never used Swype before, but after showing him that even if you are sloppy with drawing the line like I was doing intentionally it still recognizes what you want. After I demoed that to him he said he might switch to that for 1 handed typing.

    I found the overall speed of the phone a breath of fresh air from my previous 5 phones, 4 of which were Android based. It really ran without a hitch. Also someone posted the memory usage screenshot, and the particular demo unit I was using only had something like 115MB of the internal storage used, so there was quite a good sized chunk left.

    On the subject of performance, multitasking will be a breeze on this thing. There’s 2 programs that must be installed to make it much more enjoyable than the default task manager though. Task Facade for Palm Pre like task managing, and LMT Launcher for a 2 finger swipe gesture to open it. (This makes multitasking 110% easier to manage, not to mention a great way to show off to iphone fans ;) ***I’ll post links at the bottom of this post***)

    Overall, this phone is an amazing phone, WP7 or not. This thing is a beast, and I’m very glad that I’m on T-Mobile to get this :) Day 1 purchase for me.

      You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Oh my. Nice. I demoed the phone but didn’t get to do a full review on it (Store Reps Battery died on me, Go figure). Anyway, nice video. I’ll definitely have Contact, 5th Element, Jurassic Park 1 & 2, Twister and a few other movies swapping out on my HD2. I won’t be using MobiTV. I’ll be using SlingBox with mine. One time payment for the equipment then free after that. I’ll definitely be using that Barnes & Noble eReader program as there’s alot of books I’d love to read. Overall, from my experience with the phone, I’m going to be very pleased in 4 days. Thanks Wirefly!!!

    • gargoyle999

      I’ve been debating getting a Slingbox for awhile now. Pulled the trigger to coincide with getting my HD2. Next week is going to be better than christmas! :)

  • Neal

    Micro-Usb slot at the bottom? Why HTC??? I got a ton of mini-usb cables and chargers already. Most of my devices all use Mini-USB. Now I’ll have to carry a micro-usb charger.

    • gargoyle999

      I just bought an adapter on Amazon after I realized it was micro and not mini. It was easier than returning the car mount/charger I just bought that was micro.

      • gargoyle999

        sorry…mean the mount is mini…

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      MicroUSB is a good thing. Main reason: it has 10 pins instead of miniUSB’s 5 pins.

      With more pins you can carry out more functions (or instructions). This tells me that the HD2 circuit board is set up for ROM updates that will provide more functionality. (For example, there’s no TV Out on the HD2 whereas there is on the Touch Pro2.

      The TP2′s TV Out worked out of the miniUSB port. Buy a $15 cable and you can run whatever is on your handset display via a VGA signal to any external monitor or TV that has VGA ports (all devices do, that’s the red, green for audio and yellow for video). I used that to show a movie on a projector screen once and it can be used for presentations.

      So I suspect that at some point HTC will include a TV Out feature (maybe the content providers did not want that feature because it conflicts with their subscription services. E.g., Blockbuster wants you to rent movies on disc not project them from your phone).

      For charging you can buy a microUSB to miniUSB adapter, for about $2 to $5 on eBay. You can connect that and see what functions work. I suspect that not all the pins on the HD2 microUSB port have been assigned functions, so give it a try.

  • bigc17

    Well, just 4 more days and then I can show off this phone to my friends and family. I know the HD2 won’t disappoint not just because of what it can do and its giant size, but because you might as well face it, the HD2 is right now the best phone on the market “That’s right iPhone users”, the best phone on the market. When I get this phone on Wednesday, I’m gonna fiddle with it for most of the day then, give it a little rest then the next day I’ll play with the phone some more. I’ll post something about the phone on here Wednesday after I fiddle with it a little. I do hope though that T-Mobile fixed the speaker phone or is gonna send a update to improve it because most reviews said that the HD2 has a sort of messed up speaker either way, on Wednesda, this is my g1 androud replacement.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      I’ll just show the animated weather and play a DVD movie converted to MP4 (which is the format by the way) and everyone I know will be floored.

      I played converted movies on my Touch Pro2 and that made even iPhone fans and owners envious. So on a 4.3″ screen, that has to be fantastic. I can see flying coast to coast, installing an extended battery on the HD2 and playing four or more movies round trip.

      Hmm… that brings to mind, when will they be coming out with handsets that can project a 3D movie on to a wall? Come on HTC get your act together. I’d like to see a phone with that capability by this holiday season. (Oh, and it better not cost more than $199 on contract.)

      • gargoyle999

        I’m going on a cruise to Hawaii in three weeks flying from Minneapolis to San Diego then Honolulu back home after the cruise. The HD2 is gonna be sooo sweet during those flights. Aggghh…can’t wait!

  • Mel Cali

    i will be selling my nexus one to buy this phone.

    • Mel Cali

      anybody know if i can just walk in to a tmo store and buy the hd2 for $450 and walk out? without having to go through my account and adding/modifying data plans?

      • Ktwist

        @Mel Cali

        yeah for sure, just plop down the $450 and you don’t have to sign a new contract or get a data plan. But let’s be realistic, you don’t want this phone unless you get a data plan. That’s just me though. Oh and I work for T-Mobile so you can take my word on that.

      • Mel Cali

        ktwist.

        i currently have a data plan for my nexus one. can i just pop in my sim into the hd2 and everything will be fine? will the android data plan be ok or will it automatically switch me to a smartphone data plan?

      • Kevin

        @mel cali, I am using a hd2 right now with an android plan to write this. I would leave android on if you plan on switching back and forth between phones.regardless of what anyone says, this phone is king

  • lvcrazy

    i am wondering if HTC HD2 can by sync with Blackberry Curve 8900 for contacts and calender.. help please!

    • vic

      All you have to do is use the blackberry desktop manger and the switch device tool to put all of your contacts on the hd2.

      • lvcrazy

        ahhh thanks.. that should definitely help!

  • Bdar

    Thanks tmonews/wirefly, I needed another fix.

  • dwright48

    Dear HTC, thank you for an awsome phone that if it ran on android 2.1 with sense, a 1400mh battery, mini-usb, 8mp camera. It would be the ultimate phone! P.s, ill pay $400.00 subsidized with T-mobile (HD3?)

    • Jay

      1400mAh battery would make it thicker. Micro USB is the standard now and has been since last year. Mini usb is going out. You’ll probably see it less and less now in new products.

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        I bought my parents (who couldn’t program a VCR and a DVD is advanced science) a prepaid cell phone (tried a third line on my T-Mo, but they could not get a signal in the house).

        The phone was a Net10 that comes with 300 minutes, all for $30. It’s an LG phone. It has a microUSB port.

        An el cheapo $30 prepaid phone has microUSB, that should illustrate miniUSB is on the way out.

        Oh, forgot to add one other benefit of microUSB in my post. It is far sturdier than a miniUSB male end. MiniUSB plugs can bend or get distorted (this happens when users try to jam it in the wrong way).

  • JBLmobileG1

    This phone is amazing! I wonder if Wirefly will end up giving this phone away in a contest? Would be nice but I am sure they’d hold onto this phone for themselves. On a second note… Walmart… yeah you heard right…. WalMart will be selling the HD2. As for price I can’t really say but it will be less than the $199.99 that’s going around. Not sure if all stores will carry this beast but some will have them. What I will say is you will probably save enough money buying it at WalMart to pick up a good case or something for it… or maybe another battery? While it does come with a gel skin type of cover its probably a good idea to get a good case for it so you don’t end up cracking the screen in your pocket. All I can say is WOW! Its a bit heavy but for anyone looking for what seems to be the phone with the best multi media capablities on the market (even better than the iphone and possibly the Nexus One)… this is the one you’ll want to pick up…. Windows Mobile 7 or not….Android or not… its hard to pass it up. And as much as I Love the Android O/S this phone could probably pull me away from it. Let’s just hope Tmobile gets some impressive Google phones before my Contract is up…. otherwise who knows what I will do…. goto another Carrier with a good Android phone or switch to Windows Mobile. Hard choices to make that’s for sure.

  • gargoyle999

    Any site in the US to buy that extended battery with kickstand like they have over in England?

  • gargoyle999

    I generally haven’t used a case or holster for my phone before, just keeping it in my pocket. Due to it’s size though how is everyone going to carry this thing around?

  • JBMooryah

    Do you guys think it will be sold out? Suggest I get there early on launch date?

    • cheap

      i doubt it will be sold out on launch date…it hasn’t been really advertised

        Great…thanks

  • Tom

    This phone is horrible, I have so many problems with the htc hd2 sense media player, keeps crashing. audiomanager_eng.exe error all the time. Media phone that can’t handle media, kind of ironic.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Don’t be such a cornball. If you have the HD2 (I doubt you do) the phone run media perfect. The problem is with your phone, not the HD2. You are probably running a corrupted media file.

      I ran every kind of video file there was to test what WinMo 6.5.1 and HTC Sense would play on my Touch Pro2. Some file conversions would not play properly.

      By the way, for anyone reading this, if you use a DVD disc/movie converter program, the setting you should use is Microsoft Zune (if there is one) which is an MP4 setting.

      If there is no Zune setting, then use “Microsoft MP4″ and if none, then “MP4.”

      Also, if you set the resolution too high on the conversion (meaning too large a screen for the HD2), it also will not play. But since the HD2 screen is so large that may not be a problem.

      A product I have used since 2003 is from Slysoft. You will need to buy AnyDVD and CloneDVDMobile.

    I will so be at my tmo store early that morning to mine up for the low price of $57 bucks. I played with one that was in store and I just can’t not wait to have one all to myself. This way I can show all of my IPhone using friends just how this phone wipes their phones ass and that there is a phone that in every category (well maybe not apps) is just plain better. Wednesday is going to be such a great day. Oh and btw I am replacing my blackberry 9700 and using the money I got from selling my N1 to get this device.

    Does anybody knows if this device is capable of reading PDF documents? If this is possible I would love to load my college books in to it. Thanks in advance

    • Bdar

      I’m not 100% certain since I didn’t bother trying it, but a vaguely remember seeing adobe reader software in the start menu. So, yes, it likely does support PDF.

    Does anyone knows if this device is capable of reading full pdf documents? If so I would love to load all my college books. Thanks in advance. PS. Don’t mind my last post. I had a brain flatulence.

    this by far the best review for this phone now im thinking bout getting it to rock along side my N1 i love ANDROID but you almost cant tell its a WM phone

  • John

    WOW!!! Best Buy orginal price is $599. Thats $100 more than T-Mobile. Can they do that?

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Hey anybody with actual sense of the matter, I was wondering can you do the BOGO offer like they had the TP2 where you can cancel after the grace period and get the second phone free? If not, I’m going to have to settle with just getting one.

    Also, I just called one of the local TMo Preferred Dealers in South Dekalb Mall and they said that their “PREORDER” list is already full and they don’t know when they will be recieving their next shipment in. Also they said that they ARE doing the BOGO on Upgrades as well. So anybody wondering, the mall is a great place to look for BOGO Upgrade Preferred dealers.

      will it be available on the 24th?

  • damien

    I work at a hig volume store, and I found out we are getting only 12 HD2′s for release on wednesday…Thats right only 12.. I think that is embarrasing to find out that we will only have 12 in stock when we open the doors on the 24th. Other stores in my market are experiencing the same stock issue ( some store in my market are only getting 3 or 4). So just to let people know it maybe sold out in stores within the first hour or two.

    • gargoyle999

      Are you allowed to tell someone that if they call and ask how many your store is getting?

    @damien Oh noes!!!! I better get there early!!!

  • TheDude

    Yeah, my store is getting like ten, I’ve got pretty much all of them pre-sold. Because I’m awesome, I managed to get my hands on one of the shipment, so I’ve got mine. :D

    These sell themselves, touch screen is awesome, Swype is something that really wows customers, and Transformers/weather/Books/Movies do the rest.

    Phone really isn’t that big, I’ve been carrying it around for a bit now.

    Ordering through Customer Care FTW. No worries about no stock.

    Having to wait a day or two for your new phone FTL.

    Maybe I’ll see if I can talk them into free overnight shipping…hmmmmm……

  • gargoyle999

    I see the T-Mo website now gives the size and weight of the phone. That was missing before.
