No Syncing but can connect and look at files.

I am having problems syncing the XV6900 to Vista. I have a large number of contacts, so I reduced the contacts and deleted the original partnership. I connected using the USB cable and made a new partnership. I was able to get a small (couple hundred contacts entered). After this sync was made, no more seem to be able to be done. I am able to connect both with USB and bluetooth. There are no conflicts showing, you can view files, the computer thinks it is syncing, but the HTC XV6900 says that the synchronization could not be completed and the last time it was synced was just after the device partnership was deleted and the smaller list of contacts was put in. The support code showing is 0x80070008, but that does not seem to show up an...

Secret apps that make the touch better!

first one is the keyboard anoying it switches to the 2 key. all you need to do is download the happy tapping keyboard. it gives you the full qwerty at all times.

mms download the mms app from ppc geeks just google it

you can watch you tube and put flash on your touch simply downloading 2 drives TCPMP and flash just google it and it will come up.

Next trick i found out to see stored videos on your card in the video program you have to store your actual videos in the dcim media section of your card.

what i dont know yet is how to set mp3 ringtones for text messages if someone knows please share....also how to put mp3 ringtones from your card without saving it to your device...and without paying 30 buks for the contacts pro app.

XV6900 Text sound notification reminder

I love this phone but I use it as a pager also and am worried that without a sound notification after the initial text sound notification - that I wont wake up and might miss an important page. All of the other platforms I have experiences have a chime of some type that keeps reminding you of a text or phone call that was missed - How can I get windows mobile pro (touch) to perform this function? Is there any download available?

Screen question

I've had 3 6800's over the last 6 months (for various reasons) and all have suffered from the wash-out pixel issue as described in my post in the respective forum. Just curious if anyone's 6900 has developed the washed area in the bottom eft of the screen. Thanks in advance!
