wouldnt the app that made it vibrate when touched just drain the battery and be annoying?

I've had the HTC Touch Pro for about a month and a half, and I must say that it's awesome, but "stock" it's a bit slow, you can easily flash it though. Search xda on google and you'll find everything you need. With the right ROM, this phone is super fast and functional.

By far the coolest phone I've ever had.

Yager - yes you can sync
Anonymous asking about haptic feedback - if you're reffering to vibration when touching the screen, you can find apps that do this
Nightwish - i think it does
Lace - yes, you can also turn off the screen completely in standby

  • Yager

I heard that you can't sync with your pc on the Touch Pro. Any comments or insight.

Does it have a "touch screen/keypad LOCK" during stand-by mode?

the HTC touch is so cool, the GPS with Tomtom maps are so cool, it is very quick, connection to GPS takes only 5 secs for me, the only problem is the size of the sreen too small, battery is running so low only last me day or too, not good i have constantly charge it up every day... everything else is great

Wifi you can access by going to setting tab, not a big deal. You navigate backward to program and then to setting. From the keyboard there is a short cut by FN and the right cursor.

Performance is fine and no lag at all, may be in some rare cases and this happens in every mobile.

I think you were not patient enough.

Been a big HTC fan for a long time. However I was sorely disappointed with the PRO. Got one two days ago. Used it for a day and returned it. Very disappointing performance. Not user friendly at all. The keyboard keeps moving constantly and the joints looks very flimsy. Calls were dropping all the time beacsue by the time you pullit out of the case the touch flo would hang up the call and set the phone to vibrate. very very annoying. Menus are also difficult to use. keep opening up the wrong application all the time. Communication manager is hard to reach. Turning the wifi on or off requires a lot of navigation. All in all difficult to use with one hand. I think I will go for a TyTN II instead. Seems like a better device over all. The fancy touch flo screen cannot be configured. you cannot add more items to it nor remove.

The looks however are very nice. The browser is good. The display crisp and sharp. The functionlity and the programs are all very good. Radio reception is also good. Keyboard feels great and easy to use.
