    Welcome aboard!

    You probably have a Sprint Hero, not the GSM Hero (where they moved your post to).

    My advice would be to set up all your contacts as Google Contacts so that they can be backed up to your google account. Other then that, PLAY WITH THE PHONE, get into the menus and see what does what!

    My first suggestion is to save all of your contacts as Google contacts (not phone) so that they are backed up in case you ever need to reset your phone or transfer the numbers to another phone

    Some good tips:

    check for updates occassionally by going to menu-settings-about phone-system updates

    be aware of how many apps you download because using up all of the internal phone storage can lead to problems, you can check this by going to menu-settings-SD card and phone storage

    clear cache occassionally to free up space by going to menu-settings-applications-manage applications (helpful to sort by size) some apps that save cache include the browser, albums, people

    Some useful free apps to get in the market:

    Astro- its a file manager program that allows you to see all of the files on your SD card, create folders, move files to different folder

    Ringdroid- easy way to make ringtones, alarms, notification sounds from your MP3s

    Yellowbook and OI Shopping List are some others I've found useful
