The T-Mobile Dash (also known as HTC Excalibur) is a Windows Mobile Smartphone that is powered by a less than impressive TI OMAP 850 200 MHz processor. The sporty looking Dash phone features a wonderful spacious full QWERTY keyboard and big 2.4-inch TFT LCD screen, which makes the Dash phone an excellent mobile workstation. Besides that, the Dash phone also comes equipped with Windows Media Player that plays almost all popular music files that you can think of, Wi-Fi, a 1.3-Megapixel digital camera with 8x digital zoom, Stereo Bluetooth output, and a microSD memory expansion slot that allows you to upgrade phone’s memory. Since the Dash phone is a quad-band GSM phone it can work in any country in the world.

    The t-mobile dash is a great phone i have it with windows mobile 6 and the volume bar works great on my phone because you have to slide you finger up or down its not like a button that you press to put the volume down or up, i also got confused the first time i used it but it a great overall phone.

  3. david Says:

    Lonnie, 2GB is max for SD memory expansion

  4. Laura Says:

    is 2gb the max for SD memory expansion, even with windows mobile 6.0?

  5. Jenny Says:

    The T-mobile Dash is the best phone I’ve had. It’s a strong, durable, multi-functional, fun phone. The camera quality is GREAT. I was annoyed at first with the volume bar, but then I figured out you just have to slide your finger up or down, its not a button. I love it. I HIGHLY recommend it!

  6. freeza Says:

    is there a reason why you keep pressing on the screen like it’s a touch screen phone?….

  7. i ken jimenez Says:

    i had the phone a little more than a year it is awesome trying it as a touch screen for me is force of habbit as my treo went bad lol but youll get used to the non touch screen

  8. Johnny Says:

    I have stumbled with a problem. The camera and video software included after 3 months of use fails to load or function. Seems to be a bug of some sort. The worst part of this is it hasn’t been able to work ever again after I tried everything to restore the functionality, from hard reset, reinstalling the rom etc. I have shiped it back for a replacement… To bad, it is a nice phone but with bugs…

  9. fay Says:

    yea this phone is pretty cool , but it has so many bugs
    1) the alarm clock goes off whenever
    2) You have to go online and update it to accomodate daylight savings time.

    its a cool phone, but overall tmobile could have done a better job.

  10. fay Says:

    oh and it seems the highest sd micro card is 2gb. you can check this here:


  11. brandon Says:

    is the t-mobile dash going to put a network push for the phone or are we screwed into upgrading or should i say downgrading because i love my dash

  12. maja Says:

  13. gunni Says:

    i have a 8gb in my htc s620… dunno what your sayn about 2gb………. best phone out

  14. mel Says:

    i have a 8gb in mine as well….i have no idea where the “2gb max” came from…..

    best phone i have had yet and ive had no bugs. ive had blackberrys and to me the dash is the most user friendly yet simple, ut also very organized and great for work!

  15. Lareno04 Says:

    If you install Windows Mobile 6.1, the 2gb sd card memory limitation will be gone forever! I am now using a 4gb sd card and it works great! I highly recommend updating your HTC Excalibur/T-mobile Dash with Win Mobile 6.1, available for free on the web. Search for Kavana on google and download sda_application unlock as well. It’s definitely worth upgrading your HTC Excalibur. It’s like having a new phone!
