    I’ve had it with HTC. My current HTC phone (Desire Z) will be my last one. They keep on spewing units with hardware that’s only good until the next Android update. So, yeah, this one is on ICS already, but it will only take you until Jelly Bean, then it won’t be able to make the cut for the next update.

    Nabasa ko sa website ng htc na “not dual active” pero “dual standby”. Ano ibig sabihin nun?

      Ibig sabihin, kapag may kausap ka sa isang SIM, closed yung network ng isang SIM. Kapag SMS, ok lng. Ibig sabihin din, closed yung isang SIM kapag nagi-internet ka using the other one.
