I asked this before but got nothing so I'll ask again.

I'm getting my HD tomorrow (YAY!) and I've got a few questions.

1. I don't mind using the intergrated mail program it seems quite good, but is it possible to get an add-on program of somesort so I get push mail or something. I use my uni's imap service, google apps and gmail so push mail would be good but 5 minute checks I can live with (how does battery fear with this).
2. I have a program on my N95 called big time so I get big icons on the screen saver when I get a missed call or message (as well as the actual time), does the HD have anything like this S2SU I think it is seems good but can it do this?

  1. Congradulations on getting your HD. To answer your first question. I would use the program Seven. www.seven.com. This is a program that I use personally and it pushes my Work e-mail, Gmail, and hotmail. Works quite well. I don't really notice a huge difference on battery life. More or less the same as the exchange server that I use as well.
  2. Yes S2U2 screen saver lets you know if you have a missed call, text message, or really almost any kind of notification. It will even have your calendar of the next meeting etc. There are tons of settings to play around with.

Thank you for your help and praise . SEVEN seems interesting, so it pushes the email to the Pocket Outlook? Also how is the battery life for Exchange server. How large can the S2U2 icons go? Sounds good overall though.

No it doesn't push any e-mail to pocket outlook. It creates it's own Mail setup.

Battery life on the exchange server varies from how long you are connected to it and the peak times that you set. Also what radio you use and whether or not you use 3G.

The S2U2 icons are pretty large. I don't think you can modify the size of them. I would check the S2U2 thread in the development and hacking for more questions.

Hope this helps and thanks for posting in the Blackstone Q & A section.

As it creates it's own is there a possibility of using Outlook for Push email? You're welcome .

Default [Q] 4 icons on same row & sms reply space

I just upgrade the ROM and I can't remember how can I do these below, i've tried searching but seems like i can't find the correct keyword to return those...
1. There was some registry change to allow you see 3/4/6 icons in your program menu list (3 by default).
2. Increase the Threaded SMS reply space (currently 2 line if you put your text size to medium), i remember it is using some xml files or html file to change the height but I can't find it....

If any1 can point me the thread or show me how to do it (again) that'd be great.

Many thanks

Default Newbie Questions - Orange

Hi,

Firstly this is my first post on here so Hi to everyone, i've never seen a forum so packed with information before!

Secondly i've just picked up my first windows mobile phone, a HTC Touch HD(what a phone!), the first thing I did being an avid messer was look for a forum like this one to see what I can mess with and I must say it's blown my mind

Now before you say read the Wiki, I have done about 5 times and it's left me with a few questions that I couldn't find answers too...

Now the first things I have done are install the hotfix to reduce lag, google maps, installed .NET framework 3.5 to my pc which also installed on my phone and installed HD tweak but now I feel like I need more so i've been reading about these ROM's and RADIO's??

My phone is on Orange details below :
ROM version : 1.19.61.1 WWE
Radio version : 1.09.25.14
Protocol version : 52.49a.25.26U

What does each of those do and can I put a non branded ROM on my Orange phone as it says that it's locked on your Wiki page or will it mess it up?

I've kinda figured out that the ROM is like the OS so I can understand why newer is better but I have no idea what the Radio is though??

So I guess my questions in brief are:
1. What is a Radio?
2. Can I put a normal ROM on my orange phone? (if so..)
3. Which one? The latest normal one or a cooked one? (Duttys?)

Sorry for all the questions but I just couldn't find what I was looking for I guess, I hope someone can help!

Thanks
Rick

Default radio?

Found this in the XDA Wiki.

I think it has your answer.

http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index...ame=Glossary#R

...any ROM will work. Please flash HardSPL or use USPL before flashing any RADIO or ROM.
