  1. I already have a HD2 and decided to look into Android, since I have severe doubts about the way Microsoft is going with WM7. It takes some getting used to, Android, but soon enough you can make things work. The only thing is, once you get below the surface you find out that open source isn't all that open. Why do you need to "root" (another word you quickly learn) your phone to do things which are quite basic in WM? Why are there files I can't touch? It's MY phone, I will decide to brick it or not! Also, I find the quality of 3rd party apps dismal. There is a lot, yes, and a lot is free, yes, but most of it is worthless. I've posted at an Android forum, asking for good replacements of certain WM apps, like Pocket Informant, SPB Wallet, Coreplayer, Nitrogen, Mobipocket and such. So far, no one came up with an answer. Apart from the fact that the HD2 is a beautiful phone with a terrific screen, I say go for WM 6.5 (and reserve judgment for WM7S).
  2. You're right, I got mixed up. Apologies.
  3. That's nice, but very roundabout. How about this? A continually developed app with lots of tweaks, including rotation.
  4. Yes, you can still calibrate the screen in the regular way, though oddly the device doesn't ask you to calibrate the screen on first startup, like any other WM device would. There is no lag in the keyboard, as expected with a processor like the HD2's. It does take some getting used to, though. The slightest touch is registered on a capacitive screen, so you have to be quite nimble when typing.
  5. Oops! After reinstalling MS after the upgrade to WM 6.5 I neglected to enable both screens. Stupid. Works good.
  6. One thing though... I use SPB Mobile Shell 3.5. In the main screen you can use a vertical swipe to change from Professional Home to Lifestyle screen. That doesn't work anymore.
  7. That's it! Used the 1_2_1 cab, although I have official WM 6.5. Now it works and at last this device is doing what it should have done to start with. Thanks KSTAN, magnificent job!
  8. I have just found out that ever since I upgraded to 6.5 the ringtone only starts to ring just before the caller is put through to voicemail. It may have something to do with 6.5, it may be something simple I miss. Anybody any suggestions? Are there certain registry settings I should check? Anybody ever have this problem (whether is 6.5 or any other version)?
  9. Here: http://www.samsungmobile.nl/promotion/news....do?newsNo=1701 You have to register and then download PCStudio, install it. Then your device is updated through PCStudio (there's no direct link to the update yet). Not at all sure if this works for devices outside of the Benelux.
  10. Living in Holland I've been able to update to the official Samsung version of WM 6.5. Unhappy to report that Samsung still hides a lot from its users, glad to report that quite a few of the hacks mentioned in this thread work in the new firmware (I don't use them all).

  12. Yeah, 6.5 works on my Omnia2. Changed language to English later on, no problem. But I must say I don't notice much difference (I don't use TouchWiz). Still very limited functionality for the accelerometer (still NOT working in notes, SMS, email), still the hidden Change Orientation option, which you must make visible with a registry hack. Changes are mostly cosmetic. And they've added two nice games. But I've really had it with Samsung, treating their users as children. The moment the HD2 is available, I'm gone.
