    Hey Everyone,

    I just bought a Hero having used this site as a source of information in my own iphone vs Hero debate.

    I can't wait to get it - thanks to all those, (whoever you were) who provided useful insites into Hero ownership!

    Now, back to lurking...

    choo choo!

    Good choice, which network are you getting it on and are you going direct or through a third-party?

    Make sure you check to see if your Hero has been upgraded with the latest ROM when you get it although I suspect it won't be. The installation process is easy and I suggest you do it before setting up anything else on your phone.

    .... enjoy!

    Great phone, amazing UI, good choice. :)

    Make sure you download TaskPanel X off the market to help clear unused apps in the background, and use the settings toggles: Wifi, Blutooth, Mobile data and GPS. Tap then when you need to use them, then tap them when you don't need them. Helps a lot with battery life.

    Wow - thanks for the great reception and the useful starter tips!

    I'll look into them all.

    I've bought an unlocked Orange Hero from a 3rd party. Going to be using it on another network with a rolling contract. :cool:

    This has to be one of the best phones I've ever had in my life... the customization is unbelieveable and HTC Sense is AWESOME
