    I love the Hero - dont get me wrong - I am running the latest orange rom...

    but I have a few issues- hopefully some one can help me solve...

    1 - Dropped calls - no matter who or where I am calls drop about 25% of the time. I can be sitting at home doing nothing but talking then drop.. it happens alot.. starting to annoy me..

    2 - Failed to send texts - I am having a text conversation then a random message stops and wont deliver - retry - retry again - wait a minute or 2 and retry - it works.... this is getting very anoying.. again about 25% of the time.

    3 - Internet connection - (3g) - after about 4 or 5 clicks it will lock up and display page not found... wait about a minute - retry and again it works... this is about 40% of the time

    4 - my friend sends me a text message/ missed call with a new number. I cant add it to an existing contact - it only allows you to add a new contact. plus copy and paste doesnt work at these points. - i end up having to write the number down and then edit the contact.

    5- T9 - when I add a word to the library - it doesnt remember the word in my text - I have to type it in again and then it predicts it (minor but annoying)


    this phone is awsome as a gadget - but pretty crap as a phone. any one got any advice on how to help ?

    With regards the connection issues, you might have already considered/checked this, but are you sure the SIM card is locked in place correctly?

    After about a week of having mine (on UK Vodafone) it started playing up and I really couldn't work out what was wrong. I popped the back off and removed the battery and the SIM card just slid out. I put it back in the cradle and pushed the cradle fully back in place and I've not had a problem since. As it's not happened since, I don't think it was a design fault, I'd just not click the cradle fully across so it locked and hence it had worked loose, the SIM was fully connected with the phone.

    Just a thought.
