Re: My WP7 Noob Question Thread

Here's the response I got yesterday from HTC:

"Dear John McD,

I understand the importance of having the Hidden Wi-Fi application for your HTC Arrive. The application in question was found to be unsecure when connecting to Hidden Wi-Fi networks. The application may be available in the future; however, I cannot guarantee it. I do apologize for any inconvenience.

To send a reply to this message or let me know I have successfully answered your question log in to our ContactUs site using your email address and your ticket number xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

Sincerely,

Jeffery

HTC

Want to see what others are saying? Have a question to ask other HTC fans?"



So is there a way that someone can send that file or is it locked to the phone?

That's actually another questions I've got:

Storing and installing programs: With the previous Windows Mobil systems, I could always store and keep my programs on my home PC and remove/reinstall at my whim. So far, the only thing I've been dealing with has been the Marketplace. Is there a way to sav the files on my home PC and how would I install/ reinstall them as I did before?

that's a tricky one, there's 2 methods in which that can be done:

1) if u install the apps from the Zune application on ur PC the Zune will save the apps into a temp folder and will reinstall them in the matter of a hard reset. if u use the marketplace on the phone u have to remember them all and manually reinstall them.


2) it requires an unlocked phone, either by being a dev or the chevron solution ($9)

Ok, so I guess its setup that way to help prevent piracy. I can respect that. I was just hoping it wouldn't be that hard for someone with a program like htc's Hidden WiFi to send it out.

Just my luck, I get a new(advanced)phone and it doesn't have many of the features my previous one did. Hopefully the option will be back out there so I can get back on my companies inter/intranet servers.

well mango does support the ability to connect to hidden WiFi networks. if u absolutely must have this functionality now and aren't willing to wait the 60 days for the official release of mango u can download and install the beta that's floating around now. that's pretty much all I can tell u.

Re: My WP7 Noob Question Thread

Thanks Doc. I really appreciate the effort.

If/When Mango comes out in the next 60 days I'm OK with waiting for that. The only problem I see is how will it be released?

Kinda another Noob Question but:
When the OS is released, will I still have to wait for Sprint to add whatever they add like with WM when it went from WM6/6.1 to 6.5? Or, is it more like a regular Desktop OS now where they release the OS and then the phone company just adds whatever they do over their network regardless.

honestly, wp7 was released naked, and they're adding things now. today, microsoft gave it to the manufactures, so it shouldn't be long. they are also going to make windows 8 on the pc to have a metro feel, so hopefully we will get that ppc feel back.

Re: My WP7 Noob Question Thread

Here's Another one.

RingTones: I've looked through the online guide, even read through a book I found, one of those For Dummies types, and didn't see anything.

Is there a way to install new ring tones or are we stuck with the Pixie Dust adn Unicorns styles on the phone?

Thanks again as always

Re: My WP7 Noob Question Thread

OK, so it's another one of those things that will be addressed with Mango. No wonder everyone is getting onto the Developer list. It's really hard to believe that MS put out such a limited OS for it's opening shot at reintroducing the Smartphones to the market.
