    I would LOVE to be able to turn a Hero into a mobile wireless hot spot, using Wifi Tether. I sure hope this is doable on Sprint's Hero. ;)

    Something I've noticed in all the videos I've watched on this device, and I've just noticed the same thing on page 3 (pdf page 12) in the Quick Start Guide.

    Is it just me, or is the mic hole off-center just a hair to the left?

    I am genuinely excited for you all waiting on this handset.

    I think the mods should sticky an official "unboxing now" thread for you all.

    haha! yeah - a lot of phones are like that! i've noticed that!

    i think the way sound works, an inch one way or the other doesn't produce any noticeable difference - but you'd think you'd want it on the centerline so that a call while holding it to your right ear or left ear would be the same huh?



    (gee.. maybe just a lil OCD there??)
    j/k!!
    :p

    If all else fails you can root your phone and do this. My friend on Sprint did this and so did I on my Google Ion on T-mobile, it's pretty sweet.

    There have been concerns that Sprint may have made it harder to root. I wonder if there's any truth to this...?

    Yes, I sure hope so! In fact... I hope somebody tries it right away. If it's rootable, I think I'll try to buy it this weekend. :)

    I thought it was Google that made it harder to root.

    I may be wrong. That could be it.
