In a nutshell i have found a custom rom, that makes using your Htc touch dual aka touch plus p5550, an absolute beaut. installed on 16 key, niki 200 ' originally t mobile uk'

I have tested this rom myself for a week, and the most impressive thing is the battery life, it remains very, very, very stable.

i tested it against my sonyericsson elm, to gauge the battery life

the test i done was:

Play a video using both devices media player.

The sonyericsson elm used 1hr at 10%
the touch dual used 45 mins at 10%

Making phones calls - no crackles, crystal clear

video quality is good, but you may have to format some of your movies to 320 by 240

Playing audio is nice [via windows mobile media player, or audio manager]

Reception is good

Navigating thru the menu's. please note you will have to install adobe le, calculator and audio manager, seperate cabs files, when you find the rom, in the same forum, you should find the cabs

prior to installing this rom i had

this is awrold wide english rom

ROM version: 2.16.831.3
Radio version:

this rom was shockingly poor, battery would run down within 12w hours, with minimum usage.
the orignal rom

TMO_UK_2.06.110.2_Radio_NikeMR_1.65.28.25 _signed_Ship.exe - this rom was just as bad for battery

also tried

Nike WWE 2.16.831.3 Radio NikeMR - just as bad - battery would run out,,,,just on standby

The rom that i am now using is a windows 6.5 rom, please note that a few steps must be undertaken before flashing your phone with this rom. if unsure. ask

The rom

TITANIUM ULTIMATE in SPANISH,ENGLISH & GERMAN - WP.6.5 created by josemaesra, to find the rom, just do a google search with this title


One word of precaution, before you install - you must install the microsoft netframework cab, that will be found on the same page of the rom 1st, also after installing the rom you will see the battery info illustrated, once you click the icon, twice, the reading on the left is the one to go by, and don't forget to close applications using task manager in the menu, change your reginal settings to your location.

Lastily i amm not affilated with the creator of the rom. for any assistance, or queries about their rom, you will have to do it thru the forum, anything general and basic, i can be of help.

Dear HTC,

I cannot believe that actually agreed with a saleslady that an HTC may be better than a Nokia for a change. What a disaster ! Got a Touch Dual in Oct2007, hardley opened the package, used it briefly at end of 2010, with a bit of success. When the keypad not working eventually got the better of me, I took it in, it was apparently "reset" and worked briefly and then didnt work again. Took it in again and NOW, not even the touch screen works. Of course, they wanted me to pay more that the phone was worth to me to have it "fixed" . The touch screen didnt even even work after getting it back from the technicalwhome assessed it for 'repairs'. Cannot help but wonder if they removed or broke something as it was returned in worse working condition than it was sent in. What a joke. Thanks HTC, I have renewed respect for Nokia and Blackberry, which I have kept using throughout. While all units have issues/problems, at least they are always easy and quick to sort out. The only place suitable for this HTC now which you can onyl make calls off if you are very patient with the the dustbin as my children will not even use it !

HTC Touch Dual phone is waste phone, it has many issues like (Using the phone since 1yr)
1. sometimes it will swith off continously
2. when music plays the light of the cell will glow, if u off the phone temporarily then music will be closed.
3. cannot open any documents (like word) for the first time, i mean we have to switch off the phone and then have to switch on then it will open the doc.

and lots more many

Sincere sujjestion is not to buy the phone...
