You have to call to get it working? No wonder nothing happens when trying to set it up. I'll pass for now, whenever I call regardless of the issue it's like pulling teeth. I currently working in Hospitality/Guest Service and their customer service sucks. If I find my self bored enough I might give the call a try. But from what people are posting at xda, it just lists the number/contact and you can select to play the message. I hope for some google voice addition.

Yeah I was just hoping that it wasn't just me who couldn't get it working. Just googled it apparently you actually do have to call T-Mobile like the Setup told me, but apparently it's totally free I guess I'll probably call in the AM and see if I can get it all working.

post #434 of 907
Hey guys so i want to upgrade the memory on my gf's htc surround so i was looking for some pointers on how to do this, ive seen some break downs and such, but since the OS is stored on the memory card... if i swap it out with a 32gb would i have to put it into zune to reload the os? ... just making sure i dont brick the phone or something

Thanks!

Side note.. i was looking for the wp7 club/thread thing .. went though 8 pages of threads... looked up and realized it was a sticky >_> me fail

p.s. is mango out? O_o saw that yannie had it .. must be from xda?

Hehe. Yeah this thread just got stickied recently.
Greetings and Salutations btw!
I believe the phone will ask for a factory reset/reformat the card when you swap out the memory card. (im not a 100% percent sure though.) Also, ive read in xda that it has to be a certain class of sd card for the best performance. Also, phone will format it in a way that no other device can use it. (No biggie imo)
Mango Beta is out! Im kinda tempted myself to try it out. :S

edit: Its only official for developers but our friends xda has found a way to force mango on consumer / non dev phones. tread lightly though. Yannie posted the link for the guide.

I wish I could get a HD7S. But I'd rather not pay a premium for it since it just came out. And don't feel like extending my contract for 199$ upgrade. If it was like 49$ or something. Sure.

I have read that different classes of SD cards have worked. From 2 up to 10 and different sizes. Though peoples results have varied. I guess it's a hit or miss. Not sure why Microsoft went that route. lol.

Trying to find a pristine Focus is like finding a needle in a haystack. I don't get how people don't care for their phones. My biggest pet peeve is scratches etc on a phone. Found one on eBay for 250$. Paying a premium... But it's basically mint. Or I could buy one cheaper. ~200$, and then buy a OEM backcover. Idk.

haha, well yeah just saying its one my fav things about it. my uncle had a Samsung with a amoled and likes it too. But yeah i was surprised that ive got some comments at bars and such about how thin the phone is and such.

To both about the memory card.
Currently im my focus i added the upgraded memory card (32gb sandisk class 2) and it works perfectly fine, apparently the class 4 has issues. But ive filled it up to max with music (since some had crashes when its almost or is full) and also no issue there.

I had a Samsung Captivate and the AMOLED is amazing.
The sad thing is, when I go to a AT&T store just too look around and what not. I always hear the person putting down Windows Phone. It's quite disappointing.

But hmm. What does it come with? What class? I would hate to put a MicroSD card that isn't as fast as the one that came in it. Not sure if there is slow down or anything?

Purchasing a Samsung Focus for essentially 200$. Pretty much mint condition and comes with everything. Hopefully will arrive Saturday if USPS is quick on their feet, since it's only a state away.

EDIT: Just sent payment


I'm excited.
