(EDIT: Looks like I'm selling this one.)
I won a Titan a few weeks ago at the Inner Circle event in Denver.
Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but it's a UK phone. Even the power adapter included is for a European outlet. This means that the region settings on the phone are all UK. I have no idea why they'd give out a UK phone at an event in the middle of the US, but it probably is partially because it wasn't released over here at the time (which was also part of its allure and why I picked it as my prize over the Focus S).
Even more strange is that even though there's an "English (US)" setting under region, there's no discernible difference when I restart the phone to save the settings. Favorites is still "Favourites", colors is "colours", etc. What's worse is that voice dictation, for example, will spell the words using UK English and it doesn't understand my voice as well.
I'm fairly sure that US features won't be missing for the phone, as I have a US-based WLID and Zune account (though confirmation would be nice). I just wish I could figure out a solution or be told conclusively that there isn't one.
Does anyone have any insight about this? Loving the phone so far, but I can't make the commitment to switch to it yet due to these issues. I've contacted Microsoft and HTC about this, but haven't gotten more than confusion or promises to look into it (from a week or two ago).
