Excerpt: I first got the HTC 6800 because I needed something with a full keyboard and windows mobile. This phone came with that and then some! The internet sharing feature allows me to plug my phone into my laptop and it gives my laptop high speed internet. I can also send texts while in internet sharing. The activesync feature also allows me to transfer information from my desktop to laptop (or any computer with a USB) or store information on my phone.
Excerpt: I got my 6800 as a replacement for a slider that had an unfortunate meeting with a moving box. On first use this phone is woefully under powered and sucks up RAM faster than any other phone I've ever seen. After going through several forums and help sites I finally stumbled upon the Holy Grail for this phone. Custom ROMs. I upgraded to the standard 6.1 ROM from HTC. Better than the original, but not great.
Excerpt: This phone was released with Windows Mobile 6.0, and with this version of the operating system, there was not enough progam memory to run programs concurrently. Many of the negative things I read about the phone are the direct result of the low amount of ram in this phone. Sprint has released a (free) ROM with WM6.1 and I can tell you that it has made a world of difference.
Excerpt: I shared the same opinions as most of you: constant freezing, short battery life, forced to soft reset 2-3 times daily just to keep the some type of functionality and generally having second thoughts about having made this purchase UNTIL I upgraded to Windows Mobile 6.1 update.

Excerpt: In my opinion this pda is great except for sometimes it can operate slowly. I also think that the phone is not much of an update from the last version and i think they could have came out with it quickly. I think that the new style looks great if you like the color blue. The touch screen works good but there's no Vcast which i do not like. You should have the option of Vcast on any phone no matter if you have the capabilities of downloading it on the computer.
Excerpt: Was confused to buy a mobile phone, I had three options, iphone, treo 750 and Nokia n95, but he found a defect on each one, the Ipod is very nice, but I do not think that is very functional because it is new and there is no variety of programs for this, the treo 750, good for the brand but has no wi fi integrated processor 300 and N95, a super machine, but I do not like the OS that uses the phone, but that is a super phone it is, but take this choice by htc and I am not...
Excerpt: I like this PDA phone. It could be better if they had installed WM6 on that or it had GPS reciever but honestly I don't care much about those issues. I have my own Bluetooth GPS Reciever and will use that one anyway. Phone side of this device rocks. Signal strength is good and sound quality is better than what I thought. Size is amazing (it's not too bulky for me, however it's a personal taste). Overal I give it a 4.5 star out of five.
