    went to the local sprint store yesterday to complain about my hero. turns out the guy told me for sure that the update will come out for the hero phones between april 12-15. I then decided to keep my phone and see if the update will help. been having alot of things happen to my phone......not getting text pics, freezing, etc.........and tired of calling tech support only for them to reset my phone. just wanted to pass the info. if the update doesnt help my phone, im done with it.

    no, its not like that. I saw the email, which all district managers for sprint cellular get, that informed them that the htc 2.1 update will be out between april 12-15 for all sprint htc hero phones. thats the only reason i kept the phone. believe me, as much hell as i have been through getting my phone the way I want it only to have a sprint tech reset my phone, and then I have to go back and do the same crap again, over and over........thats the only reason I kept this piece of crap.......hoping that the update will fix my issuses. If I didnt see it with my own two eyes I would have ditched it. Believe me or not, really dont care, just wanted to let everyone know that it will be out on one these dates. Feel free to call sprint and ask for yourselves and see what they tell you.

    dkokkos, the guy i talked to was a district manager who was in the store when i came in to complain about my phone. i was in a roanoke, va sprint store when he showed me the email that he recieved about the update. if its not true, then i will most definately get rid of this phone.

    really? you cant be serious? after all the posts in the previous threads about when the update is coming, and chatting with tech support confirming it, and friends seeing emails on sprint computers. you need to get a life. plain and simple, when it comes it comes.

    sessman........if you see the same thing over and over......do you respond to all of them?? seems then you are the one who needs to get a life..........whatever dude.......like i said, if you dont believe me, call a sprint store and ask when the update is coming out and I bet they tell you the dates above that i mentioned. The email was just sent out last friday from the date I saw, (I saw the email on saturday), so I would guess that this info will be out very soon to all stores. Im done responding about this because I see there will be a debate about who is right or wrong and I could give 2 sh**s either way......I just want my phone fixed!


    All kinds of crap happens to my phone. I get text pics that will not download. Sometimes it will freeze when i get a call and i cant answer it. sometimes my notifications sounds will not work. Just different things. Like I said, I went yesterday to complain about my phone so of course, AGAIN, they went through my phone and reset it. As of this moment, I just got a text pic that will not download. My wife has a blackberry curve on the same plan and never has this problem at all. I forgot to mention, he also told me it was a google problem, but who knows. I tell ya, if the update doesnt come out on the date above, I will get rid of this phone.

    First of all, every rumored update day has been before the promised "early 2Q" time frame Sprint gave us. Second, this is apparently coming from a document from higher-ups as opposed to speculation by a technician. There is nothing unreasonable about what the OP is suggesting and it makes perfect sense that Sprint is intending to release the update during this time frame based on what they have already told us. WE just need to stop getting our hopes up for NO REASON. I know the rumors are getting old, but I think you're overreacting a little.

    I saw a corporate email as well. See the one I saw wasn't meant to be seen, it's the "real" 1. Apparently, someone @ Sprint was trying to leak the release date info to some internet sources and the signal rerouted off of 13 different satellites and bounced off some pond water and ended up on my pc...the release date is April 32. I would have told you all about this mishap sooner, but forces were working against me(ie an Android running 12.3 sent back in time trying to kill me and prevent me from telling you the truth, the android market/skynet becomes self aware in 2012)...the death toll was horrendous, billions of iPhone users slaughtered, and android user based used assimilated into cybernetic spare parts for the new dominate species... the humandroid. I've said too much, trust me I saw an email ;-)

    I freakin' knew it. Until it's framed logically like this, it just doesn't quite make it through my media oblongata...

    I know what you're assuming, "billions of iPhone users" yeah right! It's true, Steve Jobs breaks exclusivity with AT&T in January of 2012 strictly on the basis that Obama and the rest of the leaders of the world mandate iPhone as the only legal cell phone...after the first wave of 200k Android based users jump ship, the market fears our own stupidity will kill us off, logically surmising that if 200k people just blindly walk over to the iPhone based on political threat and the 300k flashlight apps then we'd walk off a cliff if we saw something shiney...the phones then becomes self aware, and accepts and adapts the unfinished 2.1 update and retitled it "genocake"....the update wasn't finished! HTC AND SPRINT BOTH KNEW THE DANGERS 2.1 HELD WITHIN AND THE FEW HEROES RUNNING IT IN TESTING SPARKED THE HEREVOLUTION! They were protecting us, my god they were trying to protect us! We begged for 2.1 and we got it at such a high cost. Oh no! A smaller version is after me, the Moment, they now resemble something on par with a roomba, but twice as deadly....look the humandroids are not impervious, if you are quick enough to demand that it send a picture message in its native sms app or ask for a specific time & weather at the same time they lag up and force close forcing a reboot...ironically the quirks that originally hindered the phone provide enough escape time, but the humandroids never sleep! Awake time infinity!

    Its not even funny anymore man lol.

    Seriously though this is messed up. I got my hopes up for beginning of march, I got my hopes up for the 26th, now im gonna get my hopes up for the first of april, Then what the OP said, and even what DFRESH said... **** it, I am not going to say its coming on Mothers day. It will be a great gift for mothers across the world. Even pregnant ones. I bet when this update hits, a thousand babies are born premature because of pregnant females freaking out that its finally here!!! Aww ****, now im gonna get my hopes up for that too because that would be hilarious lol.
