Any difference with the firmware update.

I have noticed the battery life has improved any other differences?

Remove apps

Is it possible to remove stuff like NFL & Nascar from the Hero? I am planning on getting a Hero in January (when I'm eligible for my upgrade) but I never use NFL or Nascar on my Curve 8330 and can only hide them. I'd rather completely uninstall them on the Hero if you can do that.

Auto On/Off

I am currently a user of BlackBerry Curve 8330 and the number one feature of the BB 8330 is the auto on feature. When I go to bed at night I always turn off my cell phone. The alarm is set to ring at 5:30AM and the BlackBerry autopowers on to sound the alarm. Does the HTC Hero have this function? If it does, then I will buy it. If it doesn't, then I have very little use for the HTC Hero.

Isn't funny how so many people have so many idiosynchrosies regarding their cell phone(s)?

Thanks.

Hey Rich Brome...

The Sprint HTC Hero has 262K color display according to HTC's website, nowhere near the puny 65K the info says on this site.

Please fix this on the info page.

Yahoo! Mail

OK.. i consider myself pretty tech savvy. But i cannot get my Yahoo mail set up on this phone. I get an error that says "Authentication failed. Please verify your username/password" i know i am typing it in right. If i set it up manually, using the POP settings, i guess technically it works but ALL of my messages are displayed, including my spam folder. And i can't break it down by folder. Anyone have any luck with this? I've googled the crap out of this problem and can't seem to find any answer. Thanks in advance for the help.

Included Accessories

According to the Sprint site the Hero does not include a holster of any sort. Is this true?

Can you assign downloadable Text/Email/Calendar ringer alerts?

One of my biggest gripes with the Palm Pre is that I'm stuck with Palm's cheesy ringer for Text Messages, Emails, and Calendar alerts. Does anyone know if you can download and assign Sprint's ringers for these different types of alerts?

Pre - Hero - Moment?

Any suggestions on these three phones? I am concerned with the processor on the Hero and the 16 bit screen. The pre has battery life issues and only 8 gb of memory in it and the Samsung Moment may be bulky.

Do all these phones have real HTML internet? Or are they mobile websites?

I want full browsing capability. Also, anyone know how the calling sound quality is on any of these phones?

Any suggestions would help...thanks

Couple of quick questions

Ok,

I currently have a CrackBerry Curve 8330 and there are only three pending phones that could get me off it; the Samsung Instinct HD, BlackBerry Storm 2 if Sprint gets it, and the HTC Hero. I know the Storm 2 & the Instinct HD will give you a full QWERTY keyboard if you tip the phone on the side (based on the Instinct & Instinct S30 and the Storm). Does the Hero have the same functionality? I don't think I could really function without a QWERTY keyboard. I have used T9 before (Sanyo 200, 8200 & Katana DLX) as well as full QWERTY (my Curve 8330 & a HPPC6700 aka HTC Apache) and I definately prefer the QWERTY keyboard. Next, will the phone be able to run apps from the micro SD card? 133MB of RAM is not all that much (the Storm 2 will...

Great looking phone, except...

Why would they put such obvious effort into making what looks like an almost ideal phone, and then do something ridiculous like not include a flash for the camera. Also, they are kind/smart enough to make the headphone jack a standard 3.5mm, yet make the charging jack proprietary. WTH HTC. Still looks like the (almost) perfect phone for me tho.

Why no Android 1.6

This ships with Andy 1.5... is the Doughnut gonna be auto updated when it drops, can I d/l the update from the unit itself, or do i have to interface it with my home computer?

Anyone know how easy/complicated the Android interface is as far as sync-ing with a desktop?
