rrounding the vertical slider button.
12. Reduce Errors in Typing
In Input options, disable the number of words to show in T9 for less mistakes wh
en typing and thus faster entry.
13. Install Compact Net Framework 3.5 to Make Old Apps Work Again
Some apps you may have used on another phone will not work on the Leo unless you
install Compact Net Framework to your phone. Download the cab from the followin
g link and install to Device only not Storage Card and then reset. http://justpc Also make sure your phone is using the 3.5 a
s default and not 2.5. Go here: HKLM/Software/Microsoft/.NETCompactFramework

ta of entry 3.5.7283.00 from 0 to 1 and then reset. This disables 2.0 and enable

16. Get True 5 Mega pixel Resolution When Using Camera
To get 5MP instead of 4MP resolution when using your camera, you must switch off
Widescreen mode in the Advanced Menu.
* Normal screen = 2592 x 1944 pixels = 5,038,848 pixels = 5MP
* Widescreen = 2592 x 1552 pixels = 4,022,784 pixels = 4MP
17. Increase Resolution of Panoramic Photos NON WORKING
By default, panoramic photos are less than 1 mp. This registry tweak increases r
esolution to about 7 mp.
Go to: HKLM/Software/HTC/Camera/P3
Adjust MainCamCaptSize to 1024 and MainCamSupportCaptSize to 1744. Soft reset.
Default 1mp is: MainCamCaptSize 64 and MainCamSupportCaptSize 80. Soft reset.
18. Get Better Video Quality When Using Camera
Use MPEG format instead of H.263 for better quality video output. This option ca
n be found by going to the Advanced Setting from the Video Settings menu. Once t
here, go to Capture Format and change format if necessary.
19. Improve Suggested T9 Dictionary With Custom Words
The Leo has a very useful hidden application in the Windows directory. You need
to unhide hidden system and Rom files in order to find it. Find the file eT9MyWor
ds.exe in the Windows directory and add a shortcut to this file in your Windows/S
tart Menu folder.
When in the application, add the most common words you use when using the keypad
such as names, locations, user names, email addresses and other words not commo
n in the standard T9 dictionary. For example if you are based in London, UK you
could add the following locations:
Leicester, Piccadilly, Tottenham, Soho, Charring, Euston, Trafalgar, Clapham,
and words such as BRB, DVD, coz, lol, xoxo,, ciao, etc.
20. Which Gloves Work With Capacitive Screen
Now winter is approaching it may be a hassel to constantly remove your gloves to
touch the screen and USE your phone. Buy yourself a pair of thin leather gloves
unlined or silk lined. The thinner the better. You will find that the screen ca
n still register your fingertips even through the thin leather. If you are male
and cannot find thin enough men s gloves, try a larger size in women s gloves. Googl
e Dent s Extra Soft 3000 gloves for a pair that definately works with Leo screen. I
own them and tested them.

all this (3038) and reset. Please note you can only use the default black weathe
r wallpaper when using the cab and also contacts photos will not show. If you wi

26. Add Your Own Album Art to Music Folders
Make sure the image you wish to use is 256×256 pixels, 96dpi and save it to your P
C. Rename the image to the following format: ~hTC_Album Please note th
at the change refers also to the file extension as it will now become a vin file

ple: If the album is called Abba Gold, then your vin file will be ~hTC_Abba Gold

If you use S2U2, you would have hated the double lock annoyance. Now you can tur
n off default Auto Screen Lock.

If you don t like your Quicklinks display names being truncated and looking like f
or example Resco Regi.. and would prefer it look like Reg Edit then you can edit the
display names here: HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/Home/x then edit the DispName.

29. Tips to Improve Typing Accuracy on Keyboard
Tap each key very lightly and watch the keyboard as you type each letter. Don t wa
tch 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 crossh
air until it moves. If you are right handed, for the middle and two right most c
rosshairs use your right thumb and for the left two most crosshairs use your lef
t thumb. If you were holding the phone with both hands and wanted to touch somet
hing on the extreme left of screen you would use your left thumb would you? Also
, turn on Spell Correction in Touch Input options.
30. 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 second
s now. Go to Settings, Personal Tab, Phone, Services, Call Forwarding and Get Se
ttings. You can change the delay from 5 to 30 seconds under the forwarding optio
n. If that does not work based on your carrier, try this:
reg edit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\PhoneCallFwd
change DelaySeconds value to 30 which should indicate 30 seconds.
31. Move Start Menu Apps to Top of List
Press and hold any app on the start menu and you can then move it to the top of
the screen. If you want apps listed alphabetically, work backwards from z to A i
n regards to the order in which you move apps.
32. Real Exit for HTc Album
By defualt, when you click on the ok/X button in HTC Album, the app minimizes an
d does not exit. Make the following change to really exit the app and thus save
some program memory: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\HTCAlbumv ok_minim ize = dword
33. Enable Auto Data Disconnect for Auto Email Downloads
When you have auto email downloads enabled, data is not disoconnected after mail
retrieval and thus your battery is drained much faster. Modify the following re
g edit to have data disconnect after 60 seconds. You can test this by tapping on
the notfification bar while downloading emails and watch the data connection cl
ose after idle for 60 seconds. Please note. Data connection will NOT auto discon
nect if you have any HTC Sense auto download enabled such as Weather, Twitter, S
tocks, Facebook or Time Sync. Please set these apps to manual download only.
