    Hey. Glad to see another Android fan. Woooh.

    Ok a great app to use to listen to any radio station is "RadioTime".

    Can listen to all the FM radio stations.

    Hi. Yes you are correct. I was a Nokia "fan boy".

    First phone (3210) then went through many Nokia's any finally ended my Nokia addiciton with the N97. The phone has everything going for it but the software was very poorly written. The OS had many bugs and Nokia would not listen to our complaints and would make the UK wait for months at a time even though a new firmware update was being pushed around the world months before.

    Also there were many defects with the phone. (Camera cover would scratch camera lense) etc.

    So I have no regrest switcing to Android / HTC Hero.
    So many apps and I love personalising the phone with custom ROMs etc

    I am now a HTC "fan boy" :p I love the Sense UI and I will not buy an Android device unless it comes with the Sense UI (HTC only) ... but you can apply a custom ROM and port the Sense UI... :cool:

    If your not unlimited data, watch your consumption when streaming radio

    Yeah the hero doesn't actually have a radio, as far as I know. You'll be streaming it over a network.

    Thanks guys. I'm allegedly on unlimited internet with t-mobile. I'd be interested though in just how much usage I can have with this. Is there anyone who has breached their limit?
