Good-Bye Touch Pro 2 and HTC

My Touch Pro 2 has water damage affecting battery life. Assurion would replace it for $ 100, but it would only cost $ 199 to upgrade. So, after much research, I went with the Samsung Galaxy S II/Epic 4G Touch. Android will allow me to use the smartphone the way WM 6.5 has. But I will miss the Touch Pro 2 which followed many years of PPC phones from the PPC 6500 upward.

I carefully considered the Arrive (which my Sprint store not only recommended against, but didn't even have a display model out anymore). But I am not a user of Zune or Xbox. I want to keep my files private and not in the cloud. Tethering is also an essential application for me. So while the Arrive is definitely a great hardware upgrade, Windows Phone 7 is a non-starter for me. Perhaps if I had never experienced the ability to customize and was starting anew, I'd feel differently.

I want to thank the Touchpro 2 community here and over at XDA who have made using this phone a great pleasure over the years. I wish that MS has chosen to upgrade WM 6.5 with new hardware so I could continue to follow what has been a great user community.

Re: Good-Bye Touch Pro 2 and HTC

My HD7 has tethering now. For it to be on the arrive its up to sprint to enable it. Due to the condition of their network and commitment towards wp7 or lack thereof,its very unlikely that they will enable it anytime soon. This is another reason y I left to T-mobile.

dark side= what we call android

darkest depth of the dark side= going android + samsung

dark side is a pun used when you switch to something else, darkest depth of the dark side is something I made up for a double swap of Android + None HTC.

oh i thought you were speaking badly of the TP2 . as in saying everyone who has trouble with it is on the "dark side" as not sprint nor assurion is recognizing our problems . my appologies :/
