- High-speed data connectivity via T-Mobile's 3G network: In addition to its quad-band GSM connectivity, this phone is also compatible with T-Mobile's UMTS/HSDPA 3G network, which operates on the 1700/2100 MHz AWS spectrum. This phone is designed to automatically connect to the best available network (3G or GSM/GPRS/EDGE) to provide faster data speeds when accessing the Web.
In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the via T-Mobile's EDGE network (which stands for "Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution"). This high-speed, mobile data and Internet access technology is fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services (with average data speeds between 75-135Kbps), including full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and e-mail on the go.
While this phone is optimized for use with T-Mobile's high-speed 3G network, many of its functions will also work well on the moderate-speed EDGE network. If you plan to access the Internet extensively on your phone, 3G network coverage may serve you best.
Activities that work well on EDGE or 3G networks:
- E-mail, instant messaging, and texting
- Downloading ringtones, CallerTunes, wallpaper, light data files
- Sending photographs via e-mail or picture messaging
Activities that work best on a 3G network:
- Viewing content-heavy websites (lots of images or videos playing)
- Viewing YouTube and other video files (they will play on EDGE, but require loading time)
- Uploading large files (photos, videos, presentations) to sharing websites
- Downloading large files from an e-mail or a website
T-Mobile's 3G network is currently available in more than 220 cities nationwide and covers more than 160 million people.

The Screen is 4.3 inches and the resoultion is 480x800. The battery life is much better than the G1 and does last all day. Camera has flash, a really nice touch and the pictures look great. The camcorder also has a light. E-Mail setup was the easiest I have had on an HTC device and worked right away. 16GB card right out of the box is a nice touch, I've put 8 full length movies and about 1,000 songs on the device right now. I used the Telenav turned by turn device and it was solid. There is also an FM radio, I will enjoy this when I go to sporting events, since I can get the baseball games on the FM station. You can get a subscription to Mobile TV, but for myself I've been using Sling Mobile and it works over 3g so I can watch all my hundreds of DirecTV shows. I don't believe the Iphone version allows you to use the 3g version of sling, and it's not available for android phones yet. As far as a Phone, I like the facebook intergration and pictures with the contacts, volume is very solid and it is easy to talk to people.Read more ›
With the HD2 this trend may finally be coming to an end. In conjunction with HTCs beautiful Sense interface, some aggressive hardware, and some genuine innovations, the HD2 is a Windows phone I can actually use and recommend. Let's start with the pros and follow up with a few drawbacks.
-The 1ghz Snapdragon processor coupled with 448mb of ram is blazing fast. This is the fastest speed in a phone currently available. The HD2 loads everything quickly, and can run multiple apps at the same time. You can feel how fast the phone runs by playing with it for a few minutes. Gone are the sluggish Windows Phones of old, constantly running out of memory and crashing. The HD2 is fast and has top notch hardware and you can feel it.
-The screen is huge: 4.3 inches and stretching from corner to corner. The Resolution at 800x480 pixels means you'll see much more on that big screen than average. That means more room for icons and that sexy weather display on the main screen.
-The HD2 supports 3g on T-mobile, including the upcoming higher speed 3g.Read more ›
I'm a longtime user of smart phones and you can say that I'm a heavy user. I typically have multiple email accounts, use GPS for occasional driving or just for walking tours during travel, WiFi regularly during international roaming and Skype on 3G/Wifi for calls. Plus watching some videos, listening to live internet radios and pod-casts as well as use it as a media player.
All the websites provide the specs, so I'll get into the plusses and minuses of the phone and my experience with them.
+ great capacitive touch screen. Very responsive. 480x800 resolution for crystal clear colors and videos
+ Included Transformer movies (1&2) do a great job showing off the screen and the processor power. It's just HD video without any lags or hazy-ness. Very impressive
+ comes with 16GB with only movies on it so you have ample of room for other media.
+ plays live audio and video flawlessly over 3G
+ HTC Sense is amazing and does a great job of hiding those Microsoft screens which you rarely get to. All the apps like email, messaging etc look much better with Sense.
+ Comes with a great animated weather screen
+ very slim though a little on the heavy side
+ 5.0mp Camera comes with flash which is good for close up photos.Read more ›
