poeticwun tells us in the Touch Pro2 Forums about this great app called WiFi Remote Access that allows you to explore the content of your Windows Mobile Phone through the browser on your PC over WiFI. It’s super easy to use and can come in real handy in a pinch.
For example, say you’re at a friends house and want to transfer a file to them but you can’t transfer it the usual way. Just fire up WiFi Remote Access up and get to business. Keep reading for a mini-review and some features.
The update for our Touch Pro2’s has been out for a few weeks. I get a lot of emails asking how to upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5. This post will walk you through how to upgrade your Touch Pro2 to Windows Mobile 6.5. Keep reading for the full tutorial.
Update: This cab isn’t working with the Official T-Mo WM 6.5 ROM that was recently released.
The Touch Pro2 does come with a FM Radio that for some reason T-Mobile forgot to include in the TMO ROM. You will need your earphones for it to work because they act as the antenna. Right now I’m listening to some cool jazz on 91.5 in Phoenix.
It does support playing music through the high quality speaker. Just tap the button above the ‘1’ preset. You can also switch back forth from stereo to mono, mute, scan, and more. To get your radio going download and install the HTC_FM_Radio.cab on your Touch Pro2. Enjoy!
Being able to access network folders on windows mobile will enable you to play video and music from your PC and much more. You will need Schaps Network Plugin. Download the .cab and install it to your Touch Pro2 (or Shadow, Dash, etc). You will need to restart your device and be connected over WiFi to the same network that the folder you want to connect to is on. Keep reading to find out the details. More >
Brandon got his lucky hands on the Touch Pro2 and put together this unboxing video. This is the phone that will be coming to T-Mobile so feast your eyes!
This is very interesting. Our friend ND4SPD has been dissecting the leaked Touch Pro2 ROM for T-Mobile, and has unearthed what looks like support for two phone lines on this device. The below comes from an .HTM help file detailing what is called “Alternate Line Support”…take a look:
Overview of Alternate Line Support
Alternate Line Support (ALS) allows you to switch between two phone lines for making and receiving calls on your device. The Line 1 is selected by default for which you can configure phone settings, such as ring type, ring tone, and more by tapping > Settings > Personal tab > Phone > Phone tab on your device. However, you can configure a ring tone while selecting either of the phone lines.
Choose alternate phone line
1. Tap > Settings > Personal tab > Phone > ALS tab.
2. Select the desired phone line, such as Line 1 or Line 2.
3. Tap the Ring tone for [Line #] list and select a ring tone for the selected phone line.
4. Tap Play icon to play back and listen to the ring tone.
5. Tap OK.
• If this service is not available on your device, please contact your wireless service provider for more information.
• To change phone settings or access ALS from the Phone screen on your device, tap Menu > Options. For more information about phone settings or how to change ring type and ring tones for your current phone line, see the related help topics.
It’d seem peculiar for the a carrier to offer the ability to carry two lines on one device, but this could be one of the ways that T-Mobile will differentiate their version of the Touch Pro2. More on this as it comes!

According to the documents on the FCC website, there’s a highly speculative release date of April 24th for the HTC Rhodium (Touch Pro2, Wing 2). For many loyal T-Mobile customers and Touch screen fans this is great news knowing that T-Mobile is finally updating their Windows Mobile Professional offering. Rumors suggest that it will probably be released with Windows Mobile 6.1 with an upgrade to 6.5 available.
