There is nowhere to hook the neck strap unless you could attach it to a case and its a rather large phone to have hanging around your neck, could be a health hazard.
HTC Touch HD is the best phone I have owned buy far, its not perfect, but it goes pretty close and a thank you goes out to this forum and all the great people on it.

I think Seal's post pretty much sum'ed it up, there's no where to attach the strap, your only hope is some case with a built in loop of sorts, besides that wouldnt you feel a bit of a wa..er walking around with HD swinging all over the place? Seal is right again it could be hazardous for yourself or others walking near you

Smile Heres the solution

YES YOU CAN!!!

I used a heated pin to melt two tiny holes into the bottom of a plastic hard case which i got from ebay. You then simply thread the neck strap clip as you would normally. I added a touch of epoxy resin to the holes prior to threading the neck strap clip just so the holes wouldn't wear

@homer285....You are right, although you wont look stupid if like myself you put the hanging HD into a shirt pocket. It will move all over the place otherwise.

hehehe, might I be correct saying that your last phone died from a serious fall? I have mine in top pocket (without strap) in silicon skin which keeps it there quite well.

Won't it be a strain on your neck with a device as heavy as a HTC HD?

i did attach a sandisk lanyard from one of my usb thumb drives to my touch diamond so that it would be easy to pull out of my pocket and i wouldnt lose it as easily but i soon realized that htc made one fatal mistake when they designed the strap port
if you have it around your neck for example and you let it fall the case cover pops right off and there goes your 750 dollar brand new diamond on the concrete.
