    Just want to get a general sampling of opinion. Maybe Sprint will check in, too if anyone from there lurks on these boards.

    Aaaaarrrrrrggh!

    ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! With this 2.x CRAP!

    Give up...
    Go away...
    Quit...
    Go iPhone...
    Smash Phone...
    PAY ETF...
    2.x...
    No 2.x...
    They better...
    They this...
    They owe...
    I can't...
    I will...
    I won't...
    You...
    Them...
    Me...
    We...
    ...
    ..
    .

    WHO F-n cares!

    I'm sooooooooo tired of the daily BS with this... So annoying it is...

    Just think when 2.x actually comes, then we'll be hearing daily how they didn't include this or that, how 1.5 was better, how it's all screwed up, how Sprint sux, HTC sux, etc., blah blah blah... ppl should just stick by the house phone and get one of those 25' spiral cords, at least then you'd have nothing to bitch about, except once you trip over the cord you would say it was their fault too. Geeeeeeeeze!

    Anyway.... had to vent!
    :cool:

    My apologies if this post offends anyone's thin skin...

    The poll doesn't include a selection for "I've rooted to 2.1 already, so Sprint can take their sweet-ass time if they want" :)

    Your apology might possibly be accepted, if only it were sincere...

    Dude...every single post that mentions 2.1 sends you into a tirade, and that eventually gets old to everyone else in the forum. There are no laws or forum policies prohibiting any mention of 2.1 in this forum, and the day the admins invoke such a policy is the day that censorship kills this forum. You have no right to abuse posters who mention 2.1, and you have no right to jack threads like you do. You obviously have issues, dude...go get some help.

    No, sorry but you are incorrect. Only lately I have gotten short in my tolerance of it as it has permeated this forum with meaningless and useless threads which repeat the same message over and over with different flavors.

    For your information, actually the Admin's here HAVE clamped down on the 2.x stuff in the past and it is my sincere hope that it happen again, hopefully soon. There are just as many users here fed up with the 2.x subject, both in content and the discussion of it, as there are those posting their negativity.

    Also, if you actually read my post you will see that I abused no particular poster, but the content itself. My mention of people is a general reflection that should constitute enough vagueness to be discreet. I have every right, just as those who post this ridiculous garbage, to comment on their threads, thank you very much. But, you would suffer me the same censorship you decry would foul and soil this forum... I need help?! Yeah, ok...

    You obviously missed my apology but must not meet the criteria I referenced in my post as to being thin skinned, seems your's might be thinner than I could account for.

    Lastly, it is not I who needs help, but ultimately those who are so fixated on the update to an operating system which controls the basic functions of their mobile phones. I jacked no thread as my post was in direct response to it.


    Anyway... Have a nice day!

    Whatever, dude. I've said all I can say without risking being banned...and that's a shame, because someone needs to tell you that enough is enough. Why on earth the moderators let you get away with it, I guess I'll never know.

    I'm gonna go have me a nice day now, thanks! ;)

    WTF is 2.1? My phone works just fine, like it did when I bought it. If it woulda been screwed up when I bought it, I had 30 days to return it. I don't need no 2.1 for my phone to work for me. I already got more than my moneys worth out of it.

    I am perfectly happy with my phone, and I will probably be happier with 2.1, but I don't want it bad enough to root... at least not now.

    My phone has been rooted since a few weeks after I got it in October, before I hd heard anything about a 2.1 update. I'm now happily running 2.1, I suggest that if you are that concerned with 2.1, just root your phone and quit complaining.

    I have to chime in.... What is getting old are the countless rants about 2.1. WTF is the purpose in continuously posting about something that evidently is going to happen when it happens. It is not considered censorship. I do not like the fact that I come here to read up on the Android world and every other freaking post has something to do with the 2.1 update. You obviously have not been around long enough for it to wear on you.

    I have not been here very long and I am sick of hearing about the 2.1 update. I think there should be a filter that deletes anything related to 2.1.

    I have a phone that works perfectly fine. If I get the 2.1 great, if not I still love my phone.

    dear op,
    there has never been an official date for the release of android 2.1 on the htc hero device. There is a time frame, which has not passed. These dates you hear of are speculated, rumors. They are nothing close to official. Therefore, there is no date to be pushed back. Hopefully the text size adds emphasis and is easier to understand :D

    I wouldn't go as far as the iPhone 4.0, cause if I wanted AT&T I'd already be with them. Now I'm with you if u said something like "It doesn't matter I'm getting the EVO". Yeah, I like that option. :D

    ^this.

    FFS, I'm about to end up with my THIRD Hero, which might be forgivable if I didn't have to deal with soul-crushing lag on the rare occasion that I have enough battery to actually use the damn thing. The ability to customize your Hero is a pretty hollow feature when you have to reset the phone once a week -- and put yourself back to square one -- to get it to run properly.

    It might be easy to conclude that this is user error on my part, but I've had two Heroes, with have both been rendered useless by completely different issues. First one behaved like it was possessed, where touching the screen in one spot would result in another part of the screen highlighting. Second one stays awake 100%, no matter what I do. It's freaking maddening.

    Of course, I could root it, but then I'd lose the warranty coverage that I've been using on a weekly basis. Owning this phone is like an hourly kick square in the jewels.

    [/rant]









    Sorry, had to vent.

    If it doesn't come in May then I'm leaving Sprint - not because of 2.1 - but because I'm not going to do business with a company that lies and bullshits their customers.

    Sprint's beginning to piss me off.
