Don't know about anyone else but this was huge news to me. Just went to my local sprint store to check out the EVO and feel jealous. After talking to the sales person and expressing this jealousy, she asked what phone I had and when I bought it. When I told her I've had the hero since Oct, she smiled and informed me that I most likely was a Premier Customer and that I would be able to upgrade this Oct!! I told her that I thought to be premier, you had to be a customer for ten years. She then told me that if you have a data heavy plan, like the unlimited data plan, and have made payments on time for 3, yes, 3 consecutive MONTHS, you are now a premier customer, and can upgrade your phone EVERY 12 MONTHS! that is huge news for us hero owners. though I do love my hero, just thinking about having the beautiful EVO in just 4 short months makes my day, my week, my month and my year! Ok i'm done, just thought everyone should know.
