HTC Mogul 6800 Can Be Modded To Operate Just Like An iPhone

Mogul HTC Logo
I just bought an HTC Mogul 6800 recently and use Sprint PCS as my cell phone provider. For developers in the same situation as me, those interested in the iPhone but not enough to switch providers, took phone mods to the next level. I just watched a YouTube video of an HTC Mogul 6800 look just like an iPhone including YouTube video playing capabilities.

The video of the demo is embedded below:

Although I haven’t really checked out the features of the iPhone much, maybe iPhone owners could tell me if there is something unique about the iPhone that the HTC with these mods do not have.

Note: This is not my video

HTC Mogul 6800 Can Be Modded To Operate Just Like An iPhone Comments

  1. Alex Krige says:

    I really like this, it just shows how all the iPhones super features are just software. It’s just a fancy GUI, and an expensive one at that.

  2. Mo Kakwan says:

    Heh, yea all the features are software but it still felt clunky with him running it on there. If was like he was holding a glowing bag of doritoes. I bet it’s because you can actually hear him clicking buttons and the birds chirping in the background. When you use an iphone there is no clicking noises, or birds chirping, only Steve Jobs sexy baratone voice over the soothing tunes of red hot chilli peppers. MMmmm… yea I’m never going to buy an Iphone.

  3. Amit Chowdhry says:

    Funny comment, Mo. Alex, I agree with your comment too. The hype seems to be all around the software. The HTC Mogul costed me about $260. iPhone retail is still $499-$599.

  4. SCOTTLE says:

    How do you turn the Mogul 6800 into the Apple iPhone like that.

    how do i make my 6800 just like an iphone

  8. Tommy says:

    Can anyone just put the damn link up without all this techy crap? No one cares how who did it just give us the damn files!!!!!!

  9. Mark says:

    I agree, it looks fantastic, can you post it for and tell us how we can do it also?

  10. austin says:

    the mogul is better than the iphone. yeah I made a call on the internet like the iphone. has the same features less cheaper no viruses. & am watchin a whole lot of videos 4 free & a lot of space 2 download a much movies & songs as I want.

  11. Amit Chowdhry says:

    i agree, austin. i still have yet to watch videos on here though.

  12. Bree says:

    Ok, I have this phone and I can barely get ringtones! How do u do all of this and is there anyway u can save your contacts to a memory card, because it gets stuck so much that I have had 3 hard resets and lost my info…

  13. Amit Chowdhry says:

    To put ringtones on your phone, you basically plug your phone into a USB plug. Your computer should automatically synchronize it.

    So while you’re phone is plugged into your computer, go to My Computer on Windows. Then you’ll see Mobile Device as an option to explore files. You’ll see a folder called My Ringtones and you can drag+drop MP3s into it.

    Then on your phone, click
    Start->Settings->Sounds & Notifications->Notifications. Then click on the pull-down menu for Event and click on Phone: Incoming Call. You’ll notice that your MP3s are in that folder now.

    It’s definetely a long process, but I guess thats the problem with SmartPhones as a whole.

    does anyone know where to find this iphone software??? plz response

  15. Anonymous says:

    I suggest that those who want to know where to get this duplicated iPhone software, go to the youtube website and search on “htc mogul” and open the video clip directly and it should show you who posted it then e-mail that person

  16. jonathan says:

    I just don’t see wat da big deal is all we want is the software so we can go and rub it in other peoples faces wat the fu%? share the wealth not to be rude but don’t be greedy and give to the needy and I need it

  19. Spitfire56 says:

    I just bought the Mogul 6800 with the iphone software, I am hoping it will come by next Friday. Send email for questions, I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is what they say it is! Wish me Luck!

  20. Smart Guy says:

    Guys, the iphone has a lot of hardware that this Mogel does not have. The tecnology is expensive in the iphone. You know the old addage “you get what you pay for”. The iphone has a accelleromiter and a multi touch touch screen amough other tec. I want to see this Mogel zoom the screen by touching it with 2 fingers.

  21. Solution says:

    Still have not get the link yet? well, I did online search and I was able to find couple links. The first link shows step-by-step instructions on how to do it.

    Second link has the TWO files you need to download and install

    Honestly, I have not tried it yet but seem very promising. Good luck!

  45. David says:

    Actually sending pics with the Mogul is easy, there are multiple camera settings and you simply tab over to the camera with the tiny phone in the corner of it, after you shoot the pic it gives you the option to send it a person in your contact list.

  46. 2poler says:

  59. divine1 says:

    i downloaded the iphone kit to my phone from, now how do i get it to ACTUALLY WORK ON MY PHONE? HELP!!!!!!!

  60. Shaun says:

    Try HTC home… It’s a freeware app and it doesn’t make your HTC operate like an iPhone but it definately makes the screen appearance and operation 100% better.

    Many other great free apps at

  61. neo havock says:

    check sprintusers, and
    works on ppc6700 and ppc6800, possibly even ppc6600 and others.
    wm pda phones are better for a couple instances, cheaper and you can use whatever software you want, iphone cost 500+ and if you are dumb enough to try install 3rd party software you end up with a brick, period!
    apple went afte a market that microsoft wast even in yet, average consumers.
    microsoft was not marketing to consumers yet, mostly business and bleeding edge folk, they have always planned on the mainstream consumer market after/when WM7 comes out, then we will see who is best.
    apple wants 100 percent control over iphone that is why only att, at least for now, they are the only phone carrier that accepted apple’s demand for autonomy.

  62. Linda says:

    Once the MP3’s are downloaded onto the phone how do you listen to them?

  63. larry says:

    Does anyone know how to do picture mail with the mogul, I was told it can’t be done. I also was told there are 3rd party software you can purchase

  64. A.C. says:

  73. Daniel says:

    How do you put ANY themes at all in your mogul. I downloaded some themes, and they are ony my desktop and they are all .tsk files…are those rights? Is there any websites you guys recommend to download mogul themes?? How do you install them,?

  74. SpiderPig says:

    You can get them from
    Very easy to install and looks great!

  75. danta dove says:

    Does anybody have problems with their ringtone not being lod

  76. MonkeyBone says:

    After you download themes to your computer, connect your phone to your computer and open your phone files and computer files. Now you can just copy and paste or drag and drop the files onto your phone. Then from your phone, start, explore files, find the themes and open them. They should now install onto your phone.

  77. MonkeyBone says:


    No offense, but the customer support on that site is terrible. The programs are nice but if you need help or click on support, “good luck”!! Other then that, the program looks pretty cool.

    for all a@#%^ that now where to go to find the software to make the mogul look like the iphone go f#$** off and for the smart guy htc was the original creator of the iphone so all htc phone are capable to do just like the iphone or better

  88. BLACK DIESEL says:


  89. Zombiphication says:

    Lol, the software is some of it.
    A lot of it is the built-in 8, 16, or 32 gigs of memory.
    Or, how smoothly the operating system runs.
    Or, the fact that the iphone is half steel.

    If you show me a mogul with 32 gigs of memory, running the iphone software perfectly, and made out of steel,
    I’d show you 500$ worth of equipment.

    So for all the retards who think that a mogul running iphone software is cheaper for the same thing,
    Think about what the fuck you’re saying.

  94. Skyman says:

    I HATE THIS PHONE! Seriously I’m so over this. I simply can’t get it to do what Sprint advertises it to do. I can’t even get the Sprint repair store to do it either. Sprint has sold me a lemon and won’t admit it.


  95. breezy says:

    jus go to and download all the shit you want jus choose the phone you have and then go to search find what your looking for put it on your phone and have a nice day. its easy really

  96. whatdoyoucare? says:

    You bunch of loosers . . . go and read manuals! Learn to use the real potential of your devices! Instead of lamefully trying to show your stinking phone (it’s not about that in case you haven’t noticed), COSTUMISE it beyond your wildest dreams (yeah, and beyond the fixed, stinking iPhone interface) when you LEARN how. The wealth of information is only fitting to a diciplined SMART mind, if you REALLY have what it takes, go for it and rub it in everybody’ faces. If you don’t, stop whinning and leaving a trail the size of the Amazon to show how incapable you are. There is no magic program to make your HTC look like an iPhone . . . there’s a whole bunch of them to do way better indeed. Many of which do slightly different things. Now, do your homework and leave forums and places like this for intelligent requests, smart comments and the such. I am fed up with having to sort the amazing amount of worthless questions, stupid comments and ridiculous requests from something that would be valuable information. You kids are the future . . . make it an interesting one!

  97. night_owl says:

    Ditto! :)

    How do I get the features on my mogul. I looked up the but I don’t know where to look for the how to get the features on my mogul. Next thing do you know if when the features are put on the phone do I lost any of my features. I just updated to the windows 6.1 which gives me the sprint tv and etc.

  100. Hemiboyzy1 says:

    There are sites within the chats providing different websites which the feature can be downloaded. You can also google (iphone features for mogul 6800) it. You may have to pay for it, but it’s there… Spend a little time researching the issue on google and you’ll actually be surprize what you’ll find.

  104. Wildstyletech915 says:

    Are half of you people on here serious??? If u want a phone that looks like an iPhone why don’t you go buy a freakin iPhone? If you’re so obsessed on having an iPhone look alike then at least read all the posts before you keep asking the same God damn question.. Where? Where? Where? Look the shit up!! You fuckin want everything on a silver platter n shit!! Use that thing in your skull called a brain and do your own research or send me the phones and I’ll do it for you for free!! Email me at and ill give u my p.o. Box so u can send ur moguls. P.S. Im posting this from my iPhone so KISS MY BROWN ASS!!!

  105. Wildstyletech915 says:

    One more thing in case you’re wondering… Why I’m even at a Mogul post site… Well I’m simply tired of AT&T and TMobiles ( My iPhone is hacked for Tmobile) BULLSHIT and have decided to get Cricket so the Mogul is one of the phones that will do most of what the iphone can do if not more and it can be fully programmed to Cricket. So to the people on here that took the time to post links and any USEFUL information, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! It IS appreciated!!
