I remember the good old days too. I remember when the Sprint HTC Hero subforum was really active. Now, it is much slower, but thankfully it is still alive. In fact, it was still very active up until the Sprint HTC EVO 3D was released.
I have jumped on the Sprint HTC EVO 3D bandwagon too, but I will never forget my roots, yes, pun intended, in the Sprint HTC Hero subforum. I am glad to see that others continue to help the people that still use this handset as their daily driver.
