I was hesitant to choose this phone because I'd read so many stories of people complaining of problems with it. Typical complaints had to do with constant freezes, earpiece (static) issues, battery life, touchy screen, etc. I have had mine for a few days so far and the phone seems fine, although I am finding that it needs to be charged daily, whereas my Nokia 5800 would require a charge every other day. I would have ordered the international version, but I picked the T-Mo (US) version mostly due to it's increased RAM/ROM size over the other.
The Amazon ad mentions this phone coming with the movies Transformers 1&2 pre-loaded on it. Attempting to play them on my phone, I only got an error message referencing the memory card, which in this case was only 685MB in capacity. I believe these phones, when shipped directly from T-Mobile, originally came with a 16GB card, which is where those movies, and and a few other programs that I noticed shortcuts to (but also didn't work) would have been installed. I don't think this model can be purchased through T-Mobile any more, as it is an older model.
Finally, another consideration for this particular phone was due to it's ability to be customized later on. I have read that the WinMobile operating system (which this phone runs on) is not one of the most popular, and also has been abandoned by its creator Microsoft. On the other hand, there appears to be many alternative operating systems that can be installed on this phone. Since I tend to keep my cellphones for a long time, this is a big plus.
I was under the impression based on Amazon's description, that the HD2 was brand new (it did NOT say otherwise)and what I received was obviously a refurb or insurance replacement phone. Also it only came with a charger and usb cable, nothing else, not even the standard 16gb memory card that comes with ALL brand new HD2 phones.
The problems did not stop there. When i tried to start up the phone, it vibrated 7 times and then froze, did this every time I started the phone. After the 10th time, the screen would not even turn on and it would just continuously vibrate. I googled these symptoms online and found that basically the issue seemed to be a bad/damaged logic board.
I was so frustrated that I spent $289 for a phone that was NOT new and did NOT even work. I could not even get a replacement since the day after I bought it, the HD2 listing changed to "Usually Ships in 1 to 2 months" I felt lied to and betrayed.
However, the only good thing to come out of this was Amazon's return policy. Within 1 week of returning the phone, I received a full refund.
I stumble upon HTC HD2 and feel great with it, it has a good price for a smart phone and it look great too. The only downside (some may not agree) is that its run on Win 6.5, which is decent but HD2 got more potentials than that. After a few tweaks its become a great phone for me, I got friends who pays $200-$300 more than me and got the phone that can do pretty much the same thing as my HD2, if not less.
