Summary: I had to return because it is not truly an AT&T device. Because of this my MMS messaging did not work and I could not ready any group messages I was in or send/receive picture messages. After 1.5+ hours on the phone with HTC and AT&T customer support the recommendations from both were to return this item.
Summary: I had the phone for a couple weeks and it stopped booting up. I liked the phone - form factor, screen clarity and speed were good. I could have received a lemon, but it does have me wondering - what happened to HTC?
Summary: Limited, capable of so much more! = ( Hardware is there, need improvement on software!!!!!! On the up side, the personalization capabilities are real convent. The photo aspect is a nice touch as well!
Pros: Fit great in a back pocket. Looked and felt great in the hand. Liked the promising look-n-feel of Windows 8 on the phone itself. Super-fun emoticons with texting.
Cons: Known issue with voice mail - can't hear it until restarted. According to ATT, it's a known issue HTC is working on. Also, when traveling internationally - text never worked despite having service set up. Domestically worked 85% of the time
Summary: This phone is aweful. I can't install iHeartRadio because the WVGA screen is incompatible with the app. That means no fm radio programs that I listen to every day. Pandora downloads at 3mb and has zero fm radio options. When you plug in the charger, it vibrates every few seconds and I can find no fix for it online. At work it's constantly vibrating and annoying. While sleeping I have to unplug it so t's not vibrating all night.
Summary: EDIT: After taking my phone back, I told the tech guy the same thing as in my review. He laughed and said he has heard the same things from multiple people. They took it back, no questions asked. I got my Samsung Galaxy phone in it's place and love it. END EDIT.. This phone is aweful. I can't install iHeartRadio because the WVGA screen is incompatible with the app. That means no fm radio programs that I listen to every day.
Summary: Unlike the US models, the Australian Telstra variant does not include wireless charging capabilities so it would not work with my Nokia Qi charger that my Verizon 8X is compatible with. It also supports LTE bands that are not present in the US, which may or may not matter to you - just don't expect that you'll be able to use LTE in the US since it only supports bands that are currently used in Australia and parts of Asia.
Summary: Writing this review six months after "upgrading" from an iPhone 4. The Windows phone was appealing to me, simply for the ability to utilize Microsoft Office (I work full time and am a full time grad student) so working "on the move" was important to me. The problems started on day 15 (not 14, which would have allowed me to exchange it at that time), with speakerphone not working.
