I have had the Hero since its release date in New York but I am getting disgusted with the lag whether I am texting or dialing. The lag is a killer. Not happy about the virtual keypad. Had the Iphone for 1 year and thier keypad is sooooo much better I think. Also one of my biggest gripes is that when I am listening to voicemail or on the phone my face hits buttons and either it wants to delete my voicemail or goes to speakerphone. Is there a way to shut screen off so you cheek doesnt accidentally hit buttons? If not I am serious thinking of going to the Droid and Verizon with their new price drops. Any help or advise would be appreciated.
