Syncing with Outlook on XP Pro AND Windows 7 desktops
I need a Windows phone which will sync backwards (to XP) and forwards (to Windows 7). Is this phone it?
I am getting conflicting advice on this point. Can anyone tell me definitively that this phone will do what I need it to do?
how do you move pictures from evo to arrive?
Good phone for me?
I've been considering an Android phone but I really am not a "power" user. 4G is nice but we still don't have it here in Indy (supposedly there are 2 towers in town experimenting with it).
I mainly do texting, email, and mobile web. A few other apps like Pandora and The WeatherChannel.
I've never been a Microsoft fan, but this OS does look interesting to me. I like the idea of the Start Screen.
Thanks for the advice.
but the mobile web is FAST
pretty cool phone, and you can use netflix on it which is AWESOME
the only downfall ive seen about the phone that is VERY diappointing is that;
it looks like there are stereo speakers on the...
AD discussions continues below...
but instead there is just an "auto f-up, sit down and cover-up" back speaker
When will Android be available?
lack of 'goodies'
its not the phone that impressed me
Comparison HTC Touch Pro 2 and HTC Arrive
Many HTC Touch Pro 2 users are considering this upgrade and your comments are appreciated.
Size: The HTC Arrive is slightly narrower and thinner than the Touch Pro 2. On the other hand, it is slight longer. This slig...
You're kidding me!
Seriously, though... who's the ri ri that didn't program the landscape switch correctly?
How dumb is that?
xbox live and zune will surely eats its memory
It may not be the best answer, but what Microsoft would tell you is that they're starting from behind, and doing t...
4g is overrated. i have never once thought "oh man, this mobile site is loading soooo slow" on my 3g phone. plus the vast majority of wimax users all turn it off, it drains...
Copy and Paste is already present!
For the record, grabbing text is very intuitive and easy. Click on a word and it's highlighted in green. Drag the arrows left or right and you've copied more. An icon appears, looking like two pieces of stacked paper, which you click to copy. That's it.
Since the phone has no "menu" button to speak of, your ability to paste the copied text is reliant on the next app you open, like a note, message, or email. But sure enough, as soon as you're in a text field, that same icon appears, allo...
I'm in love.
Downsides? I'm not an XBOX user, and the level of Zune/XBOX integration seems primed for folks who are. More to come on that, but so far it's unnecessary.
I'm really liking the onscreen keyboard, but not too pleased with the limited ringer/notification selection (reminiscent of the initial release of webOS on the Palm Pre).
The interface is slick, the sound quality is great so far, and setting it up might have even been easier than my HTC Sh...
This is a downgrade.
In addition, this phone will require a plan upgrade if you're on an older Sprint plan or at the very least the $10 premium data add on if you already have an Everything Data or Simply Everything plan. Which is fine as long as you know what you have and what you may be giving up.
WinMo 7 is too new and lacks too many things. WinMo 6.5 was very stable and had evolved into a very workable OS especially with the HTC sense UI . It was foolish of MicroSoft to scrap WinMo 6.5 and shut out all of the developers that worked on it when creat...
The merge is a step in the right direction, but that 5 row qwerty with tilt is soooo what we need on the next HTC android. Oh, and for Verizon would be nice.
I'm actually excited...
Looks like they left that feature off.
