Hello all. New to the forums here. Ok, so I unfortunately bought the Hero just before the EVO 4G was released, and didn't return it within the 30 days they gave me. I literally hate this phone. I hate the virtual keyboard, it seems my speaker has become distorted during music/ringing, its slow as hell, a lot of times when I select a thread in my messages to send a text it picks a random thread (sometimes multiple times in a row). Anyway, I am really attracted to the speed and the slide-out keyboard of the EVO Shift, and I am due for an upgrade next month. I have zero experience with rooting or installing ROMs. My question is, should I just upgrade next month to the Shift, or try rooting my Hero and save a little bit of money? P.S.- I am still running the stock Android 1.5. Is this hindering anything this phone is capable of at the moment? Thanks in advance for any help.
