Now, I want to stick with the basic function of a phone. Anyone can tell me how to get nice battery life, together with stable, fast, and simple phone performance?

Thanks in advance.
If you don't want any of the "fancy rom stuff" and more simple usage and battery life DCD's rom would probably be perfect for you.

Have also found it to be quite responsive, little to no lag. My .02 anyway
Is there a link on how to install it?

This is the link to the updated ROM, the page should be self explanatory on how to install it, and the download link is at the bottom

Re: Really sick of fancy rom, just care about battery life now

Thanks a lot for you guys helpful suggestion.

Now I installed the official HTC ROM. Looks nice. I will report how is the battery life. Here, I have two questions:

(1) Since I do not have Sprint TV, so where to remove its tab from the TouchFLO interface? There is a TFLO setting, but no for this.

(2) I desperately need the 'lock phone' function, anyone can direct me where to download the cab file for it?

Thanks a lot.

-Derek

Re: Really sick of fancy rom, just care about battery life now

cdma touch pro upgrades. any sticky for locking/locking your phone.

+1 for stock rom. every rom has something someone doesn't like. programs you don't want, add these cabs to get on your carrier, what ever. i like custom roms and the fact they exist, but i get tired of them and revert to stock often. although i could go without nascar and nfl, but to each their own.

Re: Really sick of fancy rom, just care about battery life now

Mighty/Silence ROM is a very fast stalble rom with great battery life...
And its very light, its not overloaded with programs you dont want, just add whatever you like.
IMHO its one of the best ROMS for the touch pro!!!
