    I'm startin to get really irritated with the Hero. I have had it for about 3-4 months and pretty much ever since I got it, it has been aweful as a phone. Its a cool toy, but as a phone it just plain sucks. I have it rooted and tried many roms. Now running DC 2.09.01 and i have dialer lag as long a 1 min sometimes. Whats worse is someone will call me as i'm waiting for the dialer to dial (person i'm trying to call, because i now have to play phonetag just to get to take to someone becuase of this stupid ass phone) and so i hit answer and start talking and then about a min later it decided to finally dial so i have two conersations with the same number going......


    AHHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAH!!!!! I hate this phone right now!!!!!

    Does anyone know if the Samsung moment is pretty decent phone. I might try to get Sprint to give me two of those for the ones i have now..........

    i'm really dissapointed with this HTC design. My friend's Droid on verizon is rock solid compared to this.

    Any recommendations???? Any roms i should try or would anyone really rocommend the moment? Or perhaps another phone that will works first and foremost as a PHONE!!!!

    Thanks!

    Try Fresh 2.1.2.

    I use it, and i have no dialer lag, pretty much no lag at all. Also, I use the overclock widget even though it tells you not to use it with Fresh, I dunno if that has anything to do with it. I also removed a shit ton of apps when i rooted. My baby runs like a dream.

    Samsung Moment will leave you pulling out your battery 5 or 6 times a day. That is, if you use it a lot. Like I do. If you don't use it, like the people on the Evo section who are getting 3 days battery, it'll be fine. However, I have to say, the Hero is by far (in terms of usability) leaps and bounds bettter. It won't leave you high and dry having to wait on it to re-boot to use it.

    I'm still stock 1.5 and have never had any problems. Why don't you go back to stock. Seems like most rooted people have problems. I have never had any complaint's for six months. TC

    I use the Aloysius rom and have no lag. I was running Fresh 2.1.2 and it would take about a minute to actually dial. Once I installed Aloysius my lag when from 1 minute to 1 second. I fell in love with my phone all over again.

    I had similar huge delays with the hero and some of the cooked Roms (fresh, damage, etc.), and then I went back to the stock 1.5 ROM and suddenly it was fast, and worked as it should. No delays, and it was not slower than the cooked ones. And much more reliable.
    I know everyone claims huge speed advantages with the custon ROMs, but they each have issues in my experience.

    Aloysius is the one I am using now and it is the best custom 2.1 ROM I have tried. I suggest trying this one, or go back to stock.

    Fresh will be coming out with a new ROM soon (right now it is in Beta for donaters) and it is really good.

    I had all the problems you mentioned with DC and other ROMS and was considering going back to 1.5 or stock but the new Fresh ROM is exactly what I want.
