SOURCE: I have an HTC touch2.


The problem is from the message center number, you will need to check it for right message center number. From the menu on your phone, go to message, from message go to setting, next to message center to check if the message center number is correct. the way you can no if the message center is correct is to compare it with a friend phone that uses the same network as yours using the same network as yours.
If after making comparison with your friends number, set it to the real message center number, your text messages will start sending.
You can also call you network service provider to get the message center number.

SOURCE: I have a HTC HD2

Your 4th handset? What happened to the others?
It has been a couple of months since I have used HD2 with Windows on it so here goes: Delete all the contacts in your sim card, if you are worried about losing them then download his app called pim backup. This will allow you to export all your contacts onto your computer. When you have deleted all your contacts then a restart should mean you only see your pictured contacts.
Hope this helps.

Changing htc s620 language from spanish to english

Alright... I am going to do my best here to provide non-language navigation.

If the screen is locked you will get:
Little response to buttons (Except Left Soft-Key, used with Z or * to unlock)
Just a clock on the screen with words above and below
Grey/dark screen brightness.

Providing the screen is unlocked:

Left Soft-Key (White bar above House)
2nd row last icon (Folder with gear)
7 Key
5 Key
Center Navigation button.
Select Language.
Left Soft-Key

These instructions should blindly take you to the language selection for languages that your ROM supports.

For other languages, a ROM Flash would be required, which is nearing outside of the scope of this site.

Please let me know if their are any other questions. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate.
