1st I would like to point out I am not extremely knowledgeable in understanding allot of the technical
information xda developers has to offer & provides.
However pointed in the right direction, and explanations( mostly in laymen's terms) I can usually muddle my way through some fixes & updates.
Actually xda developers helped me in the past with a phone issue, and through the kind help of its members I was able to get my issue resolved.
So now I have returned, because while using Google to look up some information about my HD2 I ran across numerous articles and posts proclaiming the HD2 as "Legendary" and still one of the best phones being used today.
So this brings up my question/s as to why?
My last phone took a swim with me and I pulled this out of the closet until I decided on what phone to purchase next.
Truthfully I considered this phone a step above my boat anchor and could not wait until I got something else.
NOW, with all the praise that seems to follow this phone, the need to know why and what makes it special has had me thinking that maybe the thing this phone lacks the most is my inability to use it properly and update it into something I would enjoy to use.
I've owned many phones in the past, starting with a bag phone, along with Windows phones, Android phones and a Iphone4.
In the past basically I used my phone as just what it was designed to be, a phone to make calls.
Currently I still use my phone for mostly making calls and texting. I'll use it to look things up on the internet, but still prefer a computer and my large dual monitors when doing most other things.
So after this long winded intro and maybe useless information, here are the things I would like to get out of this post if possible:
#1- What changes can I do to make the phone more current and enjoyable ? (keeping in mind simple instructions for a simple mind
I'm looking for insight on what people have done.
Maybe changed the phone to Windows 7?
Maybe making the phone android ?
Software /Hardware changes?
ANY and ALL information anybody would share would be appreciated. I'm really hoping I can make some changes to the phone and start enjoying what I am currently missing out on.
However, on any recommended change could you please provide me a link or a starting point where step by step instructions are available as to how to make the change/s?
Again,many thanks in advance
