MyPhoneExplorer via Bluetooth: phone could not be indentified and parameter incorrect

Chances are that you are trying to have your Android phone sync with Outlook via MyPhoneExplorer, but whatever you do won’t work, since as soon as you try to connect, the procedure stops at “identification” and MyPhoneExplorer pops up a “phone could not be identified” error. Syncing via USB cables works though, but you are […]

Convert a micro-SIM into a normal SIM card, just a knife without adapter

Sometimes you’re stuck with a brand new microSIM that you can’t use in your phone, because you need a normal form factor SIM, but maybe you had this chance to activate a special promotion that only came in microsim format.

So here is my second rant about disliking Android. I should mention now that I am a happy user of this OS on my HD2 since a while ago, after discovering that CalenGoo is a great substitute for Microsoft’s Pocket Outlook calendar, and that HanDBase in its Android version can be tricked into doing the […]

Why Android sucks for professional use

UPDATE at the end of this post. I tried many, many times to switch from Windows Mobile to Android, and every and each time I went back to Windows Mobile. Honestly, I would like to upgrade, because my HD2 won’t be enough forever, and no new phone gets shipped with a shiny Windows Mobile 6.5 […]

Li-Ion battery calibration, funny myth? Personal thoughts

I regularly lurk over at XDA since I started -happily- using my HTC HD2 Leo (actually, I just brought it to a collection center for warranty servicing… dead touchscreen, sigh). Since then, I began reading about “funny” practices regarding lithium ion battery usage to prolong their life. Even before that, when I still used older […]

How to build a solar panel charger with LiIon battery backup and USB output

Ah, solar power. The tingly feeling of getting free energy and saving the environment. My HD2, the HTC phone/device I own at the moment, has its own reserve of four batteries to switch in case I need to make an intense use without a mains plug handy, yet I wasn’t satisfied as I didn’t have […]

Dual sim mod for HD2, how-to, and disable auto connection setup

HD2, great phone, really. Shame it’s not dualsim, and no wonder there are people wanting to make it work with two different mobile numbers. Same thing did I, and this guide is to recount my findings, especially thanks to the italian member mannyy at XDA forums. First things first: do NOT buy the insanely expensive […]

Guide for HTC HD2 full two-way in-call recording

I am not going to argue with you regarding the reasons you may want to record your incoming or outgoing calls, nor how it is illegal or only partially legal in some countries. There are a couple of issues with full duplex phonecall recording on the untouched HD2: the other person’s voice is very faint […]
