Many thanks are owed to you, Ryan, and the countless others who have made all this possible. Long live the Titan! hehe

Last week after having my Titan for a year, I upgraded to the tp2. The funny thing is that I think of the Touch Pro 2 as a Titan that actually works. I was especially blow away when I was watching a youtube clip on the htc youtube player and a phone call came in, the phone stopped the play back and switched to the dialer screen in a flash.

Even after all this I'm still not getting rid of my Titan anytime soon, the next project is to load up something like tomtom and use it as a GPS for my car.

I just got my xv6800 brand new from Verizon - they still had a few left. The xv6800 and the i760 are the last two phones you can get from Verizon without a forced data plan. So I think the used ones will hold their value for awhile and the following will stick around as well.

This is my first smart phone and I must say I was very surprised at the number of phone geeks out there! The amount of software, hacks, roms, etc. available for this phone was also surprising.

I think this thread and idea is kind of stupid.

I just gave a Palm V to someone as a gift. It is ... over ten years old I think. Still a very useful device.

The Titan is a very cool little device. It will remain so for many years.

Not sure how long you've been around these forums, but if it's been a while then you would notice that support, while still available today, is not what it used to be just a year ago and so on backward. This thread was started to see how many people still have their Titans, are using them (if you're here of course you would be or maybe you got lost along the way), and most importantly are still developing for it. Many developers (contributors) over the years have moved on to other newer models.

For those of us who still have our Titan, duh clearly it's not dead, but that doesn't mean it's not dying. I for one love my Titan, but now after several years believe it might be time to move on. Maybe I'll be giving my Titan away as a gift, like I did with my HTC Apache XV6700.

Bottom line is this thread was started to see how many people contributing are still out there and how active they are to the Titan cause.

Peace out!

Actually, mine might be. Yesterday, I ordered a new Touch Pro 2 to replace my Mogul. I think I've really hurt the Titan's feelings.

Today, it refuses to boot. It hangs part way into its boot process, or if it finishes booting, it hangs shortly thereafter. Yesterday it worked fine.

I called it a moment ago from my desk phone and it told me about the incoming call, vibrated and rang. But when I clicked "answer", it locked up.

The new phone will be here Monday. Good thing.

Anyway, I guess that helps to answer the original question. Some of us are moving away from the Titan because it is reaching its end of life - literally.

PS - after sitting for five minutes, suddenly I got a popup saying that "A problem has occurred with cprog.exe. Please tell Microsoft about this problem...."

And on to new horizons...
I took the leap and switched carriers from Verizon to AT&T and in doing so I purchased the new HTC Pure. I canít wait to test it out and see what new features are in-store for me. Iím not sure which HTC model the Pure actually is, I think it's the next generation Touch Diamond2, but I don't seem to see it on the site's phone list. It might be the Topaz.

So now in a just few short days my Titan will be headed for a drawer or box in a closet. Ha-ha. Nah, I'll still be on here seeing what cool new builds and things you guys come up with. I want to try to get the GPS to work without a carrier, if possible and fiddle around some.

So I guess even seriously maimed Titan still eludes death!

Android is interesting, but there may be software and hardware issues that could plague it from being a great solution, but I would love to see it work.

Yeah that would be great if you figure that one out (2 Gb) I will dump some cheese on you and I know many other would to. I had the Diamond before it was available, went thru 2 in 3 weeks and they bumped me to the TP. My interest in that lasted for almost a month. I started with the Touch, but like the Titan best of all. Currently I am running Mattsm 23069 6.5 with the M2d Mega from WhiteAliens thread.

Oh it's definitely interesting seeing just how many people still develop for the Titan.

For me, the reason I hang onto it is because Verizon doesn't seem to have anything out there that compares. They don't seem to sell the other HTC items anymore, and they seem to have a hard on for Blackberries. The Blackverry Storm leaves skid marks on the bowl, and the software for the Storm 2 won't be any different (though the hardware will be improved).

I'm waiting for the Pre, though I'm starting to get psyched about the Droid phones.

I'm Starting to feel like Stallone in Demolition Man Reading this thread!!!
Jesus Christ!!! The last post on this thread was Oct 19th 2009?!?! DAMN!
STILL rockin w the ole Mogul as of March 17, 2012!!! Some of you who've posted, might be dead now, for all I know. Or @ least your Titans. lol I am posting this from mine via Opera mini 5.1 WM Native build + Extras. I'm using Ryan Mogul's 6.1 lite rom v1.1 but thinking of testing 1 of the newer 6.5 builds you mentioned or newer. I use TCPMP jan 2011 version from Bimbam I think (tried so many versions I've lost track.) SKINNABLE :) At the moment I'm screwing with theme customizing apps for it. most launchers etc. KILL it's poor ram. using combo of Easy Launcher, HTC Home v2, HomeScreen ++, and majority of time I'll sacrifice HTC home to use my Tempus v13 flip clock on top. kinda crowds my background logo out a bit but my moniker pic's kind of a deal breaker. I RARELY use any other and not for long, when I do use any other. Background OR clock. Top n bottom bars are black via tsk allblack theme. Using DCinobar to hide bottom 1. Would love to make em transparent, but have yet to find easy SAFE way to do it. Need original rom files cause after extracting the needed ones from the nbh file of the ryan mogul rom I flashed, had to hard reset. THANK GOD FOR RESCO BACKUP!!! lol Using a modded Mortscript to switch between 1x and 3g. Will post a coupla screenies in a few. Got a Honey Do list sceaming @ me to be done! lol Btw, to Ryan Mogul and all the others on this forum as well as others like ppc Geeks etc. Thank you for COUNTLESS free programs and knowledge you've shared over the years! I've learned all I know bout this stuff from you and still learning. later, The Jackal.
