@eazy2001x

Unfortunatley i highly doubt this phone gets hacked anytime soon so if you want to switch to it i would suggest buying a USB flash drive to carry around with your documents you dont want on the internet. you can get a 16GB flash drive now for $20.

I will also mention i used to do the same thing with my TP2, after switching to the Arrive i would never go back to my TP2, only thing that i missed right now is tethering other then that i dont miss using it as a USB drive at all.

@twiztid420 Funny how I knew he was going up say what he said in his last 2 posts and I know what he'll say in his next 2 as well. I have tethering right now on my HD7. As of right now it's up to sprint to enable it, but considering the condition of their network and commitment towards wp7 it's not likely they will anytime soon.

Re: Upgrading from the HTC Touch Pro 2 to a HTC Aarive Need HELP!!!


ok, i can deal without the USB thing.. but now i have some otherquestions...

is there a file explorer for this phone, can i set some folders to behidden?

i use to have a special pic folder that had some fun stuff in there that ididnt want to show up when some one just clicks on pics. I would rather go tothe folder and open them. in addition to that, i would like to move and changethings. can this only be done by using the zune app?

No, there is no file system access. My recommendation is to bury your private stash in the Zune Pictures library, and then go to Settings for Pictures hub and choose a single image for your background instead of leaving it to "shuffle".

Yes. In Settings, find People, and choose filter my contact list.

Yeah, agreed. That's one of the things about the Arrive I wasn't all that fond of, but I usually ended up with headphones or plugging it into a small set of speakers I have on my desk.
