Oct / Nov Cell South

Can't get a hard date on release but the Hero is coming to Cell South. Better be a good price point , historically they are too high.

Way to go Sprint

With the HTC Hero being the only phone that could get me away from Blackberry I have to say I like the GSM version of the Hero better.

We will see when it launches.

Sprints hero should have Version 1.6 already.

Android 1.5 and lower isn't compatible with CDMA networks so the Sprint Version has to be 1.6 already.

Could be quite nice

This phone could be quite nice.

They have done all the things I have wanted in a phone.
1. 3.5mm Headphone jack
2. Standard charging data port
3. Removable standard memory
4. a very usable web browser
5. CDMA radio so it actually makes good calls
6. Open applications market

Screen lock during calls????

I have been trying to find this out from every reviewer of the phone and am unable to get a straight answer. I know that there is NO proximity sensor on the phone, but there is a light sensor to control brightness, this is not what I am talking about.

While on a phone call, does the screen dim and lock, or can one manually lock the screen so we don't push buttons with our faces or in our pockets while using bluetooth? So call someone, and while on the phone call, can the screen be locked or dim out?

Can you answer that for me please???? Mobiletechreview says it dims for whatever preset time you have on the phone, but she didn't tell me whether this would happen during a call, even when I asked explicitly.
