I stole this from HTC's website, but I like this tip, so I am going to quote them here:
Q. How do I increase my accuracy on the keyboard?
A. You can increase your accuracy on the keyboard by calibrating the keyboard to be more suited to your tapping habits:
From the Home screen tap Menu > Settings > Language & keyboard > Touch input > Text input > Calibration tool. Tap the given phrase and after you have completed the calibration, the keyboard should be more attuned to your touch screen habits.

I found something intresting, if you put Advanced Task killer inside a folder, when you click on the app, a screen will show with all open apps to select which app(s) you want to kill, and also if you click menu you can setup the task killer app to which actions you want --- While if the task app is on the home screen it will just kill all apps

You can also bring up the thumbnail by pinching two fingers in, from any of the home screens. And by the way there are 7 homescreens not 6 haha.

not sure if this was pointed out.... but for all you former BB users that miss your suretype: From the home screen---->menu--->setting--> Language and keyboard---> Touch input---> Keyboard types and choose compact qwerty. i dont think the prediction is as good but it gets the job done!

SMS/MMS Message Delivery Nofication
Messages shortcut (wherever you happen to have it) >
tap the All Messages view >
Menu > Settings -- notice the "Delivery Reports" option listed twice (once for SMS, another time for MMS)
Request a delivery report for each message you send.
When your SMS is delivered, you'll get a little envelope icon with a green exclamation mark. That serves as the confirmation.

Vibrate notifications not working correct?
Kentoe helped me out. He found this trick:

I FOUND THE FIX.
It requires the third party app HOWEVER you don't need to keep it.
Go to the market and download an app called "Sound Manager" by Daniel Roozen.
Once downloaded, launch the app, press menu, go to vibrate settings and there should be two options.
BOTH should be onto vibrate whenever possible. The bottom one was set to don't vibrate and was most likely set by another app I had previously downloaded.
My phone now vibrates when it should be.

I hope this helps someone. When using a file explorer utility such as Astro File Manager the SD Card will be noted as a folder called /sdcard and the internal phone memory will be one level up called /
When you connect the phone to a PC using USB, the SD Card will show up as a drive letter such as F: but the internal phone memory will be something like G:
What is interesting is that you cannot navigate to the / in USB mode. The G: is actually at /emmc and F: is /sdcard
I discovered this because I was trying to find my photos which are in /emmc/dcim in Astro but G:\dcim in Windows

Uninstall App not in Market Downloads
If you have loaded an app that you want to remove and you didn't install it via Market, it might not exist int he downloads section to uninstall.
You can most likely uninstall it using
Seting -> Applications -> Manage Applications
Note that you cannot uninstall programs that are located on the ROM of the unit like (cityid). They are on the rom and not removable.
I had installed SlideME and decided that I didn't want to use it any more. Took me a while to figure this out.

Forgive me if this is already posted somewhere else, but I've searched the forums and haven't found this anywhere. It's only helpful in specific situations.
If you have a long url, text, or random 18 digit alphanumeric code (UPS tracking number) that you'd rather not type into your phone, and you're next to your computer, you can convert the string (letters, numbers, text) into a QR code here QR-Code Generator and then just scan it with your phone.
It was useful for me when I got a shipping notice email at home and I wanted to check on the delivery (via UPS app) on the go.
Also, I was at work on a public computer that I didn't feel safe logging into my email account when I saw a web page I wanted to bookmark. It was a very long url, so I converted it into a QR code and pointed my phone at the screen.
I suppose if you have a long text message you wanted to send, you can also type it out first and then scan it in.

Handy little browser trick that I uncovered (may have been posted previously but I didn't see it)
When in the browswer, you can press the volume rocker up or down to perform the function of Page Up or Page Down respectively. Stupid little trick but does come in handy once in a while.
