Sorry everyone, I posted a similar thread in a different subforum and realized it too late so I deleted the text there and am reposting here. I was one who had tons of problems with my Hero after the 2.1 upgrade so gave up and traded for a BB Curve 8530. Huge difference in actually, you know, being a phone and connecting to the bluetooth in my truck, but horribly slow at browsing the 'net. Is it worth it to try another Hero ($140) and root it or should I stay with the reliable BB? All opinions welcome. Thanks.
