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


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?

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.

Required plan is not atleast $100

HTC Hero requires activation on a pricing plan offering unlimited data. Sprint’s Simply EverythingSM plan provides unlimited nationwide calling, texting, e-mail, social networking, Web browsing, GPS navigation, Sprint TV, streaming music, NFL Mobile Live, NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile and much more for only $99.99 per month. That’s a savings of $1,200 over two years vs. a comparable AT&T iPhone® plan2. Sprint Everything Data plans with unlimited messaging and data start at just $69.99 for 450 minutes with unlimited night and weekend calling starting at 7 p.m. (All price plans exclude Sprint surcharges and taxes.)

You can start out with the 450 Everything Plan if you like. It is $69.99/month.

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
7. Good connectivity with calendar, email, contacts

I for one am happy with the form factor change over the previous models. Yes it looks more "bland" but it is flat and has a smaller form factor/screen size ratio.

I think that the iphone is the standard that these devices should be measured against. I think from a hardware standpoint they have made some improvements (removable/upgradable battery, memory, CDMA radio, standard data/charging port, h...
