    My battery is wrecking my focus S. I'm up to 21 hours with 37% remaining and it estimates at minimum another 15 hours with very little interaction. 2 day battery estimates crush my iPhone 4. To make matters even better, the phone hasn't fully set in the algorithm yet, and I've only charged it twice since I received it two days ago after extremely heavy use.

    Thats about worthless. Flashes when its charged, really? I hope they give it more use. If its got orange red and green I hope they can put it to more use.
    Sounds like there is potential for HTC to add in additional functionality through an update.

    I'd love to see the LED be used for notifications. It may not be able to do so with 3rd party apps, since the LED isn't an official WP7 thing. But I could see HTC having it work with email, text, and calls. Having the option to check/uncheck which ones it would work on would be awesome too. And heck, maybe even different blinking options depending on what you missed.

    Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself. lol

    Titan impressions: Well first thing is I am experiencing an issue with connecting to my wireless n router if I am not broadcasting the SSID. If I broadcast it works fine.
    Second, I cant seem to figure out how to set a vibrate only notification for text and im messages and leave the other notifications to be ringtones.
    Lastly, I am now noticing that my pop e-mail account does not leave a copy of messages on the server, so if I delete it off my phone the message is deleted from the server as well. I usually leave all my mail on the server and then let Outlook pull the mail down when I check mail from my desktop.
    If anyone knows if I am missing something for these let me know.
    Otherwise the phone is awesome

    WiFi issues fixed...not sure how but everything is as expected now. I never saw any updates. The biggest pain so far is the inability to sync shared gmail calendars. ...there are apps for that but I'd rather not have to pay.

    Other than that...awesome phone and WP is and awesome interface.

    What are you using? Gmail? Live?

    Verizon for e-mail as I have Fios. On my old LG Expo I had the option under settings to leave a copy of the message on the server. For me it works best that I can keep the cell e-mail clean and then at the end of the day pull all the mail down to outlook on my PC.

    Ryosten, check this out for Google shared calendars:

    Also, I've noticed that when i add something to one of my shared calendars, it adds to my calendar as well. I may have found a way around that too...will post later if it works.

    I can say with certainty after hanging up the phone with customer service that AT&T placed a credit on my account ten minutes ago for the 199.99 + tax for my HTC Titan I picked up this PAST Sunday. Happy shopping all. (I also verified my account now has a credit balance when looking online). Yea, no bill for December and a new phone!!!!!

    So, if you use IE and go to http://www.google.com/calendar and then sign in, you get a very basic, almost unusable interface on WP7. After signing in, change the address bar to match this:

    www.google.com/calendar/render

    That will give you the full desktop site and it does work to add items, though a mobile interface would be nice.

    I did try the mobile calendar link from my old iPhone but it didn't work on my phone. I just saved the render URL as a favorite on my phone.

    Battery status AND missed calls. If my light turned on for messaging, email, FB & Twitter, it would never turn off. Silly idea. That's what the audible tone and lock screen is for.

    It also seems to light up when I get a call too. This thing is pretty nice and a welcome upgrade from the Focus. Best penny I've ever spent. ;)

    Then I'm unsure... I have FiOS, but would never touch their email, in case I'm ever in a town w/o FiOS or I leave for a better deal.

    I have too many different personal emails but I have moved a few to allow Live to be the MTA. With the ability to check other accounts on Live, I might finally be able to move everything into just a couple of boxes.

    I personally forward my various email addresses to my personal domain email account. This way there is only a single copy of my emails in a single inbox. I have my personal account set up with a hosted exchange service. It really makes managing my email a cinch.

    I have to say I'm highly impressed with the performance of the Titan and the screen is better IMHO from a legibility and screen clarity perspective. Typing is much easier than on the Focus (not S) I had previously. The speed increase and connection to WiFi and what appears to be "4G" has been fine so far. I agree the buttons could either bumped up a little or made slighlty, and I mean slightly. I did notice the LED comes on after a missed call too. Not sure if you guys have mentioned that already - sorry if ya did.

    Overall this is the device for me and it's an excellent work phone. Docs and web pages are easier to read for me.

    One little thing I notice and I wanted to see if anyone else had this:

    If you are listening to music and use Bing, on the initial screen the audio changes to move of a Mono sound. I assume that's changing because of the voice function kicking in. At first I thought I pulled my headphones out slightly but it seems to be just with the initial Bing screen. Not a big deal but wanted to mention any little quirks I've experienced.

    Its an issue that exists with other HTC Windows Phone 7 devices. I wish they would fix it, as its been an issue since Mango was in beta.

    That's a minor issue but I hear where you're coming from. Everything else has been great so I'll live with it.

    Question. Does anyone know if battery life is affected by using the light themes? My Focus used to indicate that when I would selected it. I don't see that same warning on the Titan now.

    No... that's only for Super AMOLED screens. And as the Titan has Super LCDs this is a non-issue. I do, however, miss the pure blacks of my Samsung Focus. But the big screen more than makes up for it.

    That's sweet. I really don't see the loss of the pure blacks and the fact that I can run a light them and at this size its all good by me. This is a killer upgrade for sure.

    Also just got a very thin gel snap case delivered and it's nice as well.

    Which case did you get? I'm sending mine back and ordering the HTC one. My current doesn't quite fit at the top and it's very annoying.

    I got this one. It's nice and I'll certainly use it for a while. I did order a Invisible Shield as well. I'm not sure which one will be the permanent solution.
