  2. No... the iPhone is a great device and for the user who wants one, it's pretty much a no-brainer that a HTC Touch Cruise would >not< be an acceptable substitute... While I am enjoying mine, I can't see it swaying a potential iPhone purchaser.

    Bit Lonely in here

    Strange... mine loads quickly, much more quickly than it did on my HTC Touch. Maybe it's something to do with the O2 ROM as opposed to the HTC branded one?
  4. I've noticed the difference in responsiveness and accuracy with this screen as well. I've tried the reg-hack mentioned here, but it made no difference. My regular Touch is better when it comes to using the HTC keyboard. On the Cruise, there are a lot more typos, the wrong key gets registered surprisingly often. I've recalibrated numerous times, so that's not it. I've noticed this screen has a bunch of 'dots' if you hold it sideways, so it's using something different -- or something I just can't see on my plain Touch. I've also noticed the Cruise screen has a slight light brownish tint to it, which I'm assuming has something to do with it being a 'anti-glare' screen. Viewing it at an angle greatly diminishes the tint. I inquired with HTC support, they told me to do a hard-reset, the general keep-busy response. I've only had mine a couple weeks and am hoping it just needs a breaking-in period...
  5. There is an update available from T-Mobile (US) but it isn't a 6.1 upgrade. Are you referring to a cooked-ROM or something?

    CityTime Alarms/Timer Beta

    Must be a hobby of yours, as that would be the only reason to pursue this product. Even in it's day, support and development was inconsistent -- and that's putting it politely :D

    Touch Screen Protector

    MobilePlanet.com (Expansys) carries the HTC Touch protectors for a lot less than the price you mentioned -- even less if you get the 5-pak. Kind of a pain to get on, but once in place they're an >exact< fit...

    Sprite Backup messed up my phone!

    IMO -- Sprite Backup isn't that great. Have purchased it and tried to use it several times. By the name, you'd think you could just backup the device completely, and restore it as it was when you backed it up. Turns out not to be the case -- it backs up some stuff, but not all and you need a bit of luck if you want to restore what did supposedly back up. Sprite Backup involves a lot of time and frustration, and doesn't always work. Unfortunately, I know of no other solution :)

    Citytime Alarms 2.0 on HTC Touch

    I tried it, lots of issues. The product is still available, though not actively supported by the author. I like this one, no errors, looks great -- large touchable buttons: Spb Time This is a nice basic one that also works well and without errors: pTravel Alarm And then this one, pretty good -- no errors, but I prefer the other 2: Gentimer

    Touch Dual Car kit/holder

    I have this one: Proporta Case & Windshield Mount It's a great leather case, with leather 'brackets' on the left & right that hold the Touch securely in place and let you keep the flat-screen functionality of your device intact. What I mean is there isn't leather framing the screen, creating a ridge that detracts from the 'touchfullness' of the screen. There's a magnet inside the layers of leather in the back that grabs on to the magnet of the matching Proporta windshield mount. Strong magnet, my Touch stays in place even over a stretch of cobblestone. Both are reasonably priced, and the case is great...
  12. Just a FYI in case you haven't run into it already... I tried a progam called 'Slide-to-UnLock' or something similarly named -- S2U maybe? It's a screensaver type program that gives you a slider screen button to unlock the phone. It also has a setting that blacks out the screen once a call connects, incoming or outgoing. A tap of the power button on my Touch would turn the screen on if needed during a call. It worked great, but would be better if there was a utility that did just that, and no other 'overhead'... Anyone run into something like this yet?
  13. It used to work for me, but stopped a while back -- it's the total-internet-package or nothing for me now...
  14. The larger 'E', which means that EDGE is available whether you're currently connected with it or not, is the one they removed. The little 'E' that is combined with the signal bars is what remains now, showing just when you're EDGE-connected.
