Htc hd2 hints 17 : Activate Voicemail 30 Seconds After Call Rings
For those who find that an incoming call goes too quickly to voicemail and does not give you enough time to answer it you can increase the delay up to 30 seconds now. Go to Settings, Personal Tab, Phone, Services, Call Forwarding and Get Settings. You can change the delay from 5 to 30 seconds under the forwarding option. If that does not work based on your carrier, try this:
with Resco Registry Editor
reg edit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\PhoneCallFwd
change "DelaySeconds" value to 30 which should indicate 30 seconds.

Htc hd2 hints 16 : Tips to Improve Typing Accuracy on Keyboard

Tap each key very lightly and watch the keyboard as you type each letter. Don't watch the suggested words that pop up. Type at a moderate pace. Don't rush. Try the Align Screen option in the Settings/System/Screen menu. Don't press hard. Press as light as physically possible - barely touching the screen and wait at each crosshair until it moves. If you are right handed, for the middle and two right most crosshairs use your right thumb and for the left two most crosshairs use your left thumb. If you were holding the phone with both hands and wanted to touch something on the extreme left of screen you would use your left thumb would you? Also, turn on Spell Correction in Touch Input options and turn off vibration for keys too!
Finally the following cab decreases the sensitivity on the keyboard allowing for less mistakes. Really works. A life saver. (Cab to decrease sensitivity) (Cab to restore default settings of keyboard)
