Just got this two days ago and today is the first day I have actually had a moment to kick the tires. If anyone knows the answers to these things I would be greatly appreciatve of your help.


1. Landscape MMS reading?

Is there a way to make your MMS reply's open up in Portait instead of landscape? Though it is nice to have all that real estate to read them in it is not cool having to flip the phone every 2 minutes.

2. Importing your on sounds for notifications
I have used Resco File explorer and the default explororer on the HD2 to cut and past sounds I want to hear as alerts. the HD2 ill not recognize them. does anyone knw how to get this thing to list cut and pasted music in the Windows>Ring file?

3. SWYPE keyboard configuration
I have been usig the hacked version of Swype taken from the Omnia 2. When I changed to the numbers option the top row was the traditiona 1234567 etc. Now o the HD2 te numbers are not on one row, but broken up - inthe middle of the keyboard - into three rows. It is a bit annoying. Is there another skin/cab floating around that I can use to get the old format back?

4. Time not shown
How can I get the traditiaonal clock to show in the top right hand corner of the device next to the battery?

5. Limiting the number of e-mails you retrieve.
I set up my yahoo e-mail account. It tried to download 3,000 e-mails (from going back to when I first started the account 2 years ago :P ). I don't see the option to select a week, a day, two weeks etc. Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

I can answer point 2 - as I figured this out the other day (lots of googling).
put the MP3, WAV or WMA files in the Windows folder - then they can be chosen for Alerts (not idea why the Ringtones folder is ONLY for ringtones.

Point 5 - I presume you are connecting by IMAP? If so, go into the account (view all the messages you have on the phone), then click the right menu and then Tools then Options. Select the Yahoo! account, then select "Send / Receive Schedule". In there you can alter how often it picks up, and how far back it goes.

Have fun!

Thanks on point 2. I was putting the files into the "Rings" folder with the rest of the music. Great.

Point 5 fix was a charm as well. Thanks.

Point 3 - I'm not sure what you mean by this. I have SWYPE and the HTC keyboards and switch between the 2 without major problems. HTC Full QWERTY has numbers along the top. SWYPE has numbers along the top if you hit the SYM key once but if you hit it twice (SYM then 123) it goes into calculator layout. Hit the ABC and it will go back to QWERTY. I think you may have gone back to Compact QWERTY instead of Full QWERTY?

Point 4 - I use battclock which I got from xda developers ( http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=612083 ). This puts the Battery percentage and time 1 above the other in a space on the taskbar that you choose. I put this over the windows battery icon as it looks like it is a pain to get both clock and battery any other way. You can also get 3rd row showing memory or cpu usage.

Thanks for the reply. With regards to your point 4. Which one is it exactly? there seem to be several options. The time on top the battery. The battery and the clock next to each other. The task manager button and the clock? I just don't see the options clearly defined (but I wear glasses, so...).

It depends how you want it configured. One installer does them all, just go to battconfig once it is installed. Use the +/- buttons to alter settings. Here are my settings if you want to start with them:

Content
12h:mm
Battery%
CPU%
17
17
17
(first 3 set which counters to show, next 3 are the font sizes for each)
Location
X -114
Y 1
W 72
H 48
(positions the counters - i extended the width to cover existing clock or battery)
Colors
B 20 50
(sets min and max ranges for the set colors)
Separator
:
(sets the seperator between hours and minutes on clock)

I'm friends with the problem of no screen alignment film and use it as insensitive. How do I change the registry to align the screen and increase the sensitivity?
