Hi all, Well Telus came through for us Canucks and I finally have my hands on a Hero. Yay! A few hours in, I'm overwhelmed in spite of my exhaustive research prior to getting it. I have a couple questions, which I hope someone can answer or point me to a good place. I did do a search of the forums (solved my contacts issues-yay!) but some remain unanswered. First up is a two fold question based around having two apps because both Android and HTC Sense have their own. I don't really care which mail app I use, but I wanted whichever one will do true push from Google mail. I also want to make sure that the other one doesn't start then, so my battery is preserved. Similarly, I downloaded Handcent for SMS because I read that was wise to do. Turned off everything to do with the regular application. I hope that it now will do nothing. Again though, I'm wondering how to keep it from starting, or how I know if it has. Other thing is, does Handcent SMS link up with people so it comes over in the same consolidated way by contact? Finally, I've found that weirdly, some Facebook contacts, while I can link from a contact, do not pull over the photo. Any idea why? It seems totally arbitrary. So far, OK... will give more impressions when I have them. Thank you in advance to anyone who can offer thoughts. m.
