Default Another one bites the dust

Hey there.

My first android phone was a HTC Hero. That one lived for a long time, it's life extended greatly thanks to the guys at Villainrom. If I hadn't rooted that phone, I probably would have smashed it against a wall a long time ago.

In fact, it was retired only earlier this year, when I inherited my brother's old HTC Evo 3D. Well, I say "old", but in reality it had just been refurbished for free on his insurance... but repairs took too much time and he really wanted to get a Samsung Galaxy SIII.
So he did. He bought a red SIII, and I got the Evo 3D. Technically a used phone, but most of it had been replaced.

Considering I upgraded from a slow-ass Hero (which still works fine, by the way, that thing is built like a tank), the Evo 3D is a marvel to use.
It's a bit of a battery hog, but since I'm a photographer and carry a fairly sizable camera bag everywhere anyway, stuffing an extra charger in there isn't much of a problem. Provided I can find an outlet somewhere.

I wasn't really sure about rooting, and to be honest, if they hadn't included so much undeleteable crapware, I probably wouldn't have bothered. Even better, the free version of Shazam interfered with my paid version of Shazam...and I never could hit the right button when I needed it.

Now I'm here to ask for some help. I'm another one of those poor unlucky and clueless fools that has a problem and registers to post a "help me?" thread.
I won't post that here, though, but if you have any expertise on the Evo 3d, I'd appreciate it if you took a look at my soon-to-be posted thread about that.

I really don't want to go back to using the Hero.

Hi Blinkie. Welcome to Android Forums.

My first Android was the Hero too. And yes, I still have mine (you just can't kill those suckers! ) as an emergency back-up phone.

I see you've already found and posted in our Evo 3D section, so it looks like you're finding your way around here fine. If there's anything we can help you with, please feel free to ask.

I hope you'll enjoy your time here!
