    I love windows phones especially big screen one... so i bought the Titan 2..
    I bought a month old Htc Titan 2 that was used for At&t. I am getting ready to unlock it and use it for Tmobile but Does it really work well (voice, data, text)? i didnt find much information online. I read the forum here there were some media text issues and such but not much.
    should i switch to tmobile ? the reason i like to switch to tmobile and not use at&t because of their expensive plans... tmobile offers 500mins voice +data+text for $50.
    is this a good plan?

    any information, advice greatly appreciated.

    thank you thank you...:)

    Internet sharing is the option that allow you to share your Internet connection through wi fi, that is a kind of personal hotspot. it is a Windows phone out of the box feature.

    Are you in the US? You can use Straight Talk and not unlock the phone. It's $50 a month for unlimited minutes, texts and "data". Right now with Straight Talk MMS does not work. That is because HTC does not currently allow users to edit all of the APN settings. Word is there may be a fix soon to add more profiles.

    I have not had any issues with my Titan 2. Works well for me.

    Check out your local AT&T store. They should have accessories, cases and other items.

    AT&T local stores are interested in you only if you are into buying a big plan. i got some accessories from an online website... cheaper and more variety.

    You said you couldn't find any accessories. Well they have them at the At&t store. not sure what you mean by they are only interested in the big plan. You go in and be put on the list, they help you in the order that you come in at. They don't mind if you buy accessories, just pick them out and then you pay for them.
