I love the Hero. It's frustrating - but with Sprint I have a phone that makes calls, I can multitask, and with 2.1 - it works even better now. And the battery life has only improved since I've bought it. BUT. It's kind of hard to ignore the fact that the day 2.1 is officially released for the HTC Sprint Hero - is the same day that 2.2 is "unveiled." The one thing I really wanted was the ability to launch apps from my SD card without having to root. Oh well. I think I'll just root 2.1 once that happens. But do any other Hero owners feel a tad bit messed?
