Re: Bored with my phone

Have you tried flashing the different ROM's? Have you tried different apps? Theme's? Search for the fastest and stable build?
Then try to see what you can do next, game, video, uploads.

Re: Bored with my phone

6.5? that pretty much just made me want *more*, in terms of upgrades. i was in the sprint store with my friend, she was looking at maybe switching from verizon, and i took my phone out and was txting, and the guy behind the counter goes, oh, what kind of phone do you have..........and i'm like umm, touch pro? sprint? and he's like, what interface? and i'm like oh, just the plain titanium. and he was like huh? so i was like oh, 6.5. and he flipped. he was like oh my god, thats out? wtf, the tp2 isn't getting it blah blah blah, and i'm like yeah you should check out ppcgeeks. anyways, at this point, if you've already flashed to a 6.5 rom, you've already done more than most. softwarewise, what do you want to do? thats the only aspect of windows mobile that keeps its customers...pick something you want the phone to do, and in some round-about way, it can do it. but if you don't want it to do a specific task, and you're looking to just spice it up... flash a custom rom. if you need it to do something, post in the software section what you want, and i'm sure somebody can find something.

Re: Bored with my phone

I felt the same way.. today I decided to grow a pair and flash my rom.. I flashed it with Silence and I just can't believe how it runs..I felt pissed that I didnt switch to the Iphone when I had to chance... But after today I fell in love with my phone all over again. Try flashing the rom... You wont regret it.

Re: Bored with my phone

what i did when i got bored was usually flash a new rom, try winmo 6.5, or use a new UI, SPB mobile shell has a pretty good one that has a trial for a couple of weeks, by then you can try something else

Re: Bored with my phone

A.) Its a winmo based phone there are hundreds of thousands apps for FREE you can install to make your phone fun.
B.) If you haven't tried flashing new roms... read read read and learn how and it will occupy you for weeeeeeeeks.
C.) If your bored with your phone then your doing some thing wrong.. I've had my touch pro for months now and still can't find away to get bored with it..even though the girlfriend grips about it lol

If you like games to play I would suggest searching Archibald's Adventures..or The Quest... they are the games that are keeping me on my phone for a cpl hours a day and with the right search fields you can get for 100% free :-p ... also emulators if your old school like me (Nintendo, Geniuses, Gameboy) or what ever suites your fancy will keep you busy for months :-p

Re: Bored with my phone

I started tethering with my Acer Aspire One. Brought a whole new dimension to the touch pro, especially when adding the 9 cell battery to the computer.
