    ok, unlocking the phone will cost around 15.00 using HTC Hero unlock codes and HTC Hero unlocking - select GSM network. ( i used it for my phone)

    To update the software go here
    HTC Hero - ROM Upgrade for HTC Hero (3UK)
    scroll to the bottom, enter the phone serial number, and download the rom, run the rom (from the pc i think) and it will update your phone to the latest rom/firmware

    if you unlock your phone, you can still upgrade your rom, as new ones are released, from the link above ^^, as when you unlock you phone your serial number will remain the same- at least i think thats what you mean when you say carrier block.

    3 uk has a reputation for bad reception...but their payg is so damnn good lol - i purchased my hero for 200 pounds on ebay locked to t-mobile- unlocked it - and now use my 3 payg sim

    Three are very clever with there network and seem to make there phones work how they want to, I have a HTC Hero and my friend has a HTC Hero to but on Pay as you go, Now i am on Contract and have been for 6 years he has had his HTC for 2 months and signal is poor, But put my sim in his phone and signal is full... Work that out i can't but seems like there Pay as you go service is not as good as there Contract, But we tried another sim that was on pay as you go but regular topped up for the last year and full signal everywhere... Seems like 3 have a clever system and know who is cheating...
