    ok after 2 months of trying to change my cr@p satio my hero finally arrived today and i think its a gr8 phone ..

    1st of all are there any specific settings i should use for the phone, maybe to help with battery life , better camera and video making etc ,

    2nd am i still able to use the windows messenger from the 3 site or soes it have to be from android market

    3rd i have looked at the ROM thread but i dont really understand what it is or what it does , should i update it , if so what will it do ,

    4th i know 3 are miles behind in the update department my phone currently has 1.5 but not worried about that as i can wait for them , so please dont state i should unbrand

    5th any useful apps . i didnt have anti virus on my satio (symbian ) is it advisable to get an av for android, does opera work well on the hero and any other apps that are good . oh a real good sat nav would be good too gmaps is poor

    anything else you think i need to know let me know

    dont ask for much do i lol

    thanks in advance

    Hi, I have also just got my new (well second hand) hero today on three. I think there are good app links in the sticky hints and tips thread, also google top/best android apps.

    I traded in my old nokia n86 because I was sooooo bored with it and upgrade time is sadly far away. I have to say, so far I love it, even on 1.5. I have 2 emulators running and facebook and twitter and all sorts, it's great. Then again anything would be more entertaining than my clunky old s60 n86 (miss the camera though) :rolleyes:

    I like the barcode app (search in the market) it's fab, also the appkiller app is essential otherwise there is no way to close down running processes (well afaics)

    The best free one is a part of google maps but I don't think it's available in 1.5 , so you'll just have to be patient if you don't want to unbrand your phone.
