    No carriers picked up the Hero in Australia so I ourchased one from overseas unlocked. I am on a Vodafone plan. Will OS updates still appear in the notification bar or will I need to check manually. if I do need to check manually, will it be through HTC or Vodafone?

    If it's a sim free, unlocked (unbranded) Hero then any updates could be downloaded from HTC direct.

    Try going here: ROM Upgrade for HTC Hero and entering your serial number on the bottom of the page. If it lets you download it, you'll be able to update direct from HTC! :D

    No problems Dave. I had an Orange UK branded hero and it was annoying having to wait until the network specific update was released.
    No more network branded handsets for me in future!
