Does anyone have any suggestions on rooting this device, I have been having issues with battery life as well as a few other issues with the phone. I want to root the phone but not sure what rom to use. Either PM me or post back on this forum. Thanks.

battery life

I have had the MyTouch 4g for 3 days now. My battery seems to drain after about 6 hours of normal use (apps, web, phone calls, SMS, etc). Is this normal for MyTouch 4g? for all Android phones? for all smartphones? Just keep plugging in to my computer, car charger, etc? My previous phones (BB Bold 9000, Treo 650) lasted 1-2 days on a charge. Is the iPhone any better?

Confused about 4G! HELP!

I can't seem to connect to anything through 4G. I have great WiFi connection when a network is available, but when I am not connected to a WiFi network, I can't do anything such as Facebook, words with friends, etc. Anyone know how to "turn on" the 4G? Please help! Thanks!

I just don't know what to do now. Because I have done everything!

Cant change the message alerts

I am having an issue with this phone. I go into messages and hit the menu button to bring up settings and then I go into the section for received messages and received notification is checked, play notification sound is checked and then I select a notification sound. But it won’t change it! It doesn’t even play the default sounds it plays Alpha. I have gone into the phone profiles to change the notifications alert and everything else I can think of nothing seems to change it. Anyone else having this issue. Does anyone have fix? Also another weird thing when I try to download an app from the marketplace that may override the phones built in settings it keeps force closing the program when I go into to download one. What is up wi...

Anyone know if I'll get 3G data on MT4G while in Europe?

I know I'll get voice no problem but want to know if I'll get 3G data speeds?

Can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any way to set up exchange webmail on this phone? I did it when I had my Blackberry but can't now. I am trying to get my work email to it but dont have complete settings so this is how I had set it up when I was using my Blackberry.

I currently have my touch 3g. Im planning to update next week to either the my touch 4g or the htc hd7. Had a chance to play with each of them for a few minutes, Both seem nice, but they're 2 differnt animals. Will the hd7 be reliable - being so new??

HTC MyTouch 4G vs HTC EVO

Can anyone give me some sound advice as to which phone is better. I currently have T-Mobile and its time for an upgrade. Half of me wants to go ahead and get the MyTouch 4G, but at the same time the EVO is really tempting. The specs look almost identical for both phones. Can anyone fill me in on which phone is the 'Best Buy' overall?

Release Date?

Was going to upgrade to the G2... until hearing of this.

Will someone please offer a better release date than "the holiday season?"

No Pre-Order?

That's dumb.

Wifi "lite" calling, HSPA+, Swype, 3.8" screen (that's right, not everyone likes the retrogressive, back-to-big movement), DLNA, Froyo, FFC (usable over the network AND wifi) and a host of other awesomeness = one bad ass phone!

My only gripe is if it's like the G2, then there's no native access point tethering. Luckily, there are apps for that which don't require bluetooth or a usb cable as they both are bottlenecks.
