Well, I finally broke down and used my upgrade. As much as I wanted to hold out for the Galaxy Nexus, my Hero just wasn't cutting it anymore. I spoke with some Sprint folks and got some semi-straight answers about what to expect with the LTE rollout and the life of Wi-Max, and decided that for my situation, the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch 4G would be a fine phone to carry me through the next two years. I hope I'm right. At least the Best Buy Buy-Back program will give me a little more choice if I fall in love with something else before my two years are up. So to my little Hero, C'est La Vie, you've been a great phone. To the Hero forums.....see you on the flip side.
