Fellow Hero users, I watched this video: YouTube - Up and Close: Sprint Hero Part 2 I disabled Peep and I noticed an improvement with the overall performance of the phone. Apparently it causes major issues which results in poor performance and lag. Be sure to log out of the application! Then force stop it under settings --> applications. Then never open it again! I noticed a great difference in performance. I hope this helps everyone here. Oh and be sure not to use the HTC twitter widget either! That widget is linked to Peep.
