    For those of you who have purchased your Hero at Best Buy, when the salesperson turned it on to activate it, did you have to enter your Google name / password? I would rather setup all the Google apps when I get home....

    Mine didn't.

    I told him that I didn't even need him to activate the phone, because I didn't feel like spending an eternity in there, but he said he had to activate it.

    I second Stinky. Mine didn't either. I remember when I got the g1, you had to login with your google account when the phone was first turned on. It didn't happen with the hero, you can set your login info after the phone has been activated. I guess is a Android 1.5 thing.

    Unlike everyone else, I DID HAVE TO ENTER MINE. He wouldn't allow me to leave until it was "activated", but maybe it's because I was getting a replacement...????

    They wanted me to enter mine to set the phone up right then.
    I just switched to sprint to get the Hero. I couldn't remember my password at that moment so said I would do it later. But was told I would have to enter it to use the marketplace.
    My niece and nephew also both got theres at BB a few days ago, they did not ask them to. Same store.
    However, my nephews phone was not set up AT ALL apparently and he was on the phone with Sprint for a half an hour from another phone to get his HERO activated correctly.
