    Is there a way to obtain a non-carrier specific version of the 2.1 update for the HTC Hero? I don't have Sprint, but I do have a HTC Hero. It is part of a beta campaign for a new carrier in the US. It only has 1.5 on it, though. If I download the Sprint 2.1 update from HTCs website, will I not be able to use the phone anymore? Will it work on my carrier with Sprint's 2.1 release? I noticed it comes with Sprint specific stuff like Sprint TV, etc. I know that stuff wouldn't work, but would my data plan, messaging, etc work as before if I update it?

    Otherwise, is there another way I can update this phone to 2.1 that won't make it specific to Sprint?
