    I'm switching from prepaid service to Sprint's 69.99 unlimited plan. Now, at Radioshack, they have a deal going on where I can get a Hero for 69.99. Now I have some questions:

    Is it worth getting the HTC Hero for such a cheap price or should I wait for one of the new sprint phones?

    The HTC Hero is the phone I was originally thinking of getting all along, but with the N1 coming, I don't know what is best to do.

    Well... wait until it gets 2.1. Then check on how it's being reviewed.;)

    I would agree to getting it also. It's a solid phone, due to receive 2.1 soon. Getting a new release you have to deal with them working the bugs out. Unless money is no object to the OP and he doesn't mind dealing with bugs, go for the Hero, I love mine.

    I'd recommend waiting. The Hero is a solid device, no doubt about that, but it's getting a tad long in the tooth. There's the N1, the Desire, the Legend (specs close to the Hero but hey, if you like aluminium)--the choices of latest-and-greatest are plenty.
