Like many of you, I had intermittent reception problems with my first HTC Hero which was otherwise the perfect handset. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of replacing it to see if I could get one with better reception, and not only was the reception worse, but a couple of pixels were clearly dead the moment I switched it on, light was leaking *severely* through the top four hard keys (you could see it in daylight, whereas you could barely see it at night-time under the power key on the original handset), and when I took it to France over the weekend, a whole bunch more pixels decided to get 'stuck' on the screen. To say I was annoyed at such an expensive handset going titsup on me while I was overseas is understatement of the year. So, while I think Android is the best smartphone OS I've used to date (I'm a former SymbianOS user), I've decided to give up on the HTC Hero, and thus, give up on Android and related forums for now. Thanks for having me. You've got a great community here, and I'm sure I'll be back in 12-18 months when better Android handsets are on the market.
