Yes the physical KB is one of the best in phonedom. I run stock sense 6.5 in titanium and deleted anything I don't use in WM also I keep my apps to a minimum and clear the cache frequently with app2sd. Pushing all apps that will move to the SD card helped me keep it stable.
Edit- Something I think we all forgot to mention is the fact that the screen can tilt, I think any new slider should have this but to my knowledge us TP2 users are the only one's. Just more bragging rights for us in my eyes.

Thumbs up Re: Who Still Loves Their TP2?

Oh Yes, I still love it,

A agree with everyone (at least the 6 pages I just read)

This phone is still a beast. Yes, Internet browsing is kind of slow, but I'm using RSS feed to sync everything (news and video/audio podcast) during the night (I do have an unlimited data plan and I'm abusing it - about 10gb per month of data).

I go to school with that thing and I TAKE MY NOTES ON IT! Why, 'cause of the awesome keyboard of course! Seriously, I'm now at a postgratuate lvl and I still type fast enough so I'm not missing anything Going to university without a bag or even a pencil, just with a phone (but an awesome one), thats priceless - and sooo nomad. And yeah, the battery lifetime is great, even if I carry 2 or 3 batteries sometimes (video on a 800*480 just eats it and my schedule is just crazy).

And right now, this phone have no clear competitor on the better resolution/better keyboard side of things. But if I had to chose, I hope it will be an WP7 (that support android boot as well)

(sorry for my English, its not my first language, or even my second one)

Re: Who Still Loves Their TP2?

Eric, based on what you said before, and the added costs from Sprint of a new smart phone, I decided to wait a little longer before pulling the Android trigger. But from what I'm reading on the Arrive thread, it looks like Mango is still short as far as tethering is concerned and the Arrive may not even have the right chip. Custom ringtones are now supported, but the installation is described as cumbersome. And integration with contacts, tasks, email et al is not as seamless either as with the TP2. I still wonder why MS chose to go with a new OS that doesn't support many features its' customers loved in the old one. I wish the Arrive community would get some hacks going on these points.

My son just got the Photon 4G. It is an awesome product - both from a software and hardware prospective. But Sprint is said to be getting the Iphone 5 next month, so I'll be looking at that.

@gjhuff u must be really smoking something if ur considering the iPhony over the arrive. as for the arrive having the right chip it does, some user on xda recently proved this and HTC will include it in a later ROM update,there will be ringtone creation apps to simplify the process and music downloading apps such as supermusic has a ringtone creation feature within it. I find the integration with contacts,tasks and email to be just as easy if not easier than it was on my tp2.

Re: Who Still Loves Their TP2?

I guess alot of other people are smoking whatever I do then as the Iphone 5 hype and build-up are massive. I'm glad to know the Arrive has the chip supporting tethering - which apparently it was falsely reported not to have on the Arrive thread.

Maybe you can clarify something else for me - to synch with an Exchange server on the Arrive, can you do it directly as you can on the TP2, or do you have to do so by synching with windows mail first?

Re: Who Still Loves Their TP2?

Ladies and gents, read the title "Who still loves Their TP2" Op created the thread to discuss this. Please let's not make this a discussion which spirals off topic. This site has plenty of room for everyone to have an opinion/preference, but give the op his due respect and let's have some good TP2 stories in this thread. Thanks.

With that in mind, boy do I miss SPB Mobile Shell for Winmo on the tp2. What a nice change of pace from touchflo. What say you?

Many Thanks Riley !!

I'm very thankful for all the posts and stories posted here so far. If you're lurking out there and you're still reluctant to chime in here don't be shy! I know I enjoy reading any and all these TP2 stories and I'm pretty sure others do as well.

Thanks again everyone.
