    Had the Hero for 3 weeks now, and love it. Much nicer than the IPhone :D

    Just one issue I have had with it.

    When someone phones, I tend to only have about 2 rings to answer it before it goes to voicemail. When I tested trying to phone it myself from another phone, it rang 3 times on the phone I was rinigng it from before my Hero made any sign of life. On the 4th ring the LED started flashing and on the 5th ring it started making a noise. By th 7th ring the voicemail had kicked in.

    Why does it take 3 rings before the phone starts doing something?

    It seems like its the software just taking a moment to work out whats going on. I'm running the latest ROM however it was the same on the older one too.

    Any ideas?

    I dont think this is a problem unique to HERO ... my G1s do the same .... I suspect that it is a Carrier network delay ... as their system trys to find out where you are .. before routing the call to the correct tower .... hence the delay ...
