    As far as the syncing goes, i use spanning sync on my mac. It syncs my MobileMe contacts and calendar with google... and thus the phone.

    As for the music, i just drag and drop fro Tines to the mem card.

    hope this helps a little.

    Thanks for your help, what about updated???!!

    On the HTC website:
    HTC Hero - ROM Upgrade for HTC Hero (3UK)

    The build number on that is: ROM version:2.73.771.73 (3UK)
    (I am on 3 Mobile)

    And on my phone the build number is: 2.73.771.62 CL80033 release-keys

    I am guessing that means it needs updating? But how do I do it and will it reset my phone?

    If you follow the instructions when you click on the link to down load the update you should have no problems, from what i've heard though it will wipe the device. You best make a note of the apps you have as you'll need to get them again.

    As for your contacts etc, they will still be on your email account.

    I think i'll have to wait for a generic update to come out as i'm on the Cable & Wireless network in the Channel Islands.

    I wouldn't bother with the update unless you're sure that it fixes a problem, Danny. It's still the same version and revision (2.73.771.xx) and probably not worth the hassle of a reset. Best advice is check with 3 beforehand.
