Touch Pro2 tips: How to change the city for weather on your calendar

Summary: As you know I now own a T-Mobile Touch Pro2 and am working on setting it all up and customizing it to my preferences. I already have over 25 3rd party applications loaded up and am getting everything just right. There are a few things I could not figure out myself and discovered there is a great FAQ section on the HTC Touch Pro2 over at the HTC site. I copied a few of these tips I found particularly helpful below, including fixing the weather on your calendar, switching apps without a directional pad or lots of customizable hardware buttons, and customizing the TF3D weather widget.

How do I change the weather city in my calendar day view?

To change the weather city in your calendar day view, please change the current city in your world clock. The weather in your day view will change accordingly. BONUS TIP: To access the World Clock (I actually had to read through the manual to find this) you need to tap the date/time on the TF3D display that shows it since there does not appear to be any stand along world clock application. Then you can change your city.

How do I switch between running programs?

The Quick Menu, located at the top right corner of the Today screen, lists all currently running programs. Tap the Quick Menu to switch between running programs or to stop programs when you don't need them.

How do I select a city and set the Weather options?

Select the Weather tab, then tap Menu. On the Select City screen, browse through the list of cities and choose your city. Tap Menu > Weather Options. Select the Download weather data automatically, and the Download while you're roaming (roaming may incur additional data usage fees) check boxes.

    When you dial a number which has a menu system such as at a customer support center are numbers available to press in response without sliding open the keyboard? I heard this was a bit of an issue with the older Touch Pro.

    Also, is there a Voice Dial feature? The HTC FAQs indicate there isn't.

    That was very helpful. I recently bought my touch pro 2 and i am having a problem with one thing on this phone....it is that everytime i send a text message, a notification appears and it vibrates/beeps and shows "message sent." It get's kind of annoying....do you know how to get rid of it? I've tried everything in tools and options and settings.

    I was at wits end trying to figure this out!!!! Read your
    findings and my weather is set for my city, not the
    nearest big city 98 miles away. Thank you!
