Just upgraded to the HTC Hero (sprint) from a 2 year faithfull Samsung Instinct... Dont get me wrong, I loved the instinct and it did well enough for me.. But I had serious "phone envy" when seeing friends and coworkers playing with thier Iphones and a more recently Android phones. All I gotta say is HOLY Freaking !@(*$&@&!!! this thing is amazing.. I didnt know what I was missing out on! Within hours I was scouring these forums and getting all the must have apps/games! Havent rooted or anything like that yet.. (gotta read up on it first) but I am pretty damn happy with it so far.
