Shame that Sprint still has their heads crammed up the money pipes as they refuse to let anyone on a SERO have any new cool phones...despite me having unlimited everything.

They're trying to get you off a plan that they probably lose money on. Makes good business sense. Can't stay in business if you don't make a profit.

i loved that plan when I was on it. But my goodness if you need a phone your choice are very limited. Mainly due to the internet is from they told me. When I needded a phone there was only 4 phones that they could sell me that would work with that plan. Plus 90% of the people don't even know what the SERO plan is. And thats including people working for Sprint.

I'm actually on a better plan now and have my options open for any badass phone. Getting it through my gf now.

Preordered it today. Grabbing it on June 4th when it's out.

Sprint has it for $199 after $100 mail in rebate, or you can go to Best Buy/Radioshack and get it at $199 without needing a mail in rebate.

I had an android phone (Hero) before getting the iphone 3gs, so the Iphone lovers can hold off on the "you don't know what you're doing" talk.

I'll keep the 3gs as an expensive ipod touch.

The phone wasn't revolutionary, but it wasn't horrible either.
I'm saying i'm familiar with android, familiar with rooting, i know what the marketplace was like when i had it, etc etc etc.

Get it rooted, you'll like it a lot more.

HTC hero has been the best Android phone released yet. Go over to androidcentral.com and see how many people disagree. Motorola is shit compared to HTC, is that's who you're saying has the better phone.


And BTW, I am running Eclair (2.1) on my Hero and its awesome.

I don't think I am. If Wirefly sells it for $149 like they're speculated to + $50 Bing cashback, that's an extra benjamin I can keep in my pocket. I can hold off until the next Monday and save $100.

i don't see how people say the htc hero is badass. hell i got the new software/firmware a week ago and it still does the same shit as before. just a tiny bit less... some of the times. most of the time it is the same jerky slow ass phone like it always has been

now i know you guys can mod them to be badass so i have read... but i don't have a personal computer so i can't do all the fancy stuff to it. i bought a 8gb 3g iphone for $150 and i have used it(wifi)for a few hours and i am amazed on how much better it is than my htc hero. and i didn't have to hack it or mod it to be smooth and fast.

i WANT to like the htc hero, but fuck it runs like crap. and i don't have the resources to mod it so i will most likely have to go to the iphone =/

go play with an evo on friday, you might change your mind, i've played with one for a few hours so far and damnit i want one! I'm not eligible for an upgrade until October. I checked out the wirefly thing and may go that route.....


There are only 2 days for the launch of HTC EVO 4G in the country and RadioShack stores are preparing for that as well. Today Wirefly has announced that it will carry HTC EVO 4G right from its launch on Firday.

------------
Andy Zeinfeld, CEO, Simplexity parent of Wirefly has said that the company is feeling proud to be the official launcher of the most expected phone. He also said that the company is proud to be the first retailer of the phone and the sales will kick off at 12.01 am on June 4th. He also went on to say that Wirefly is yelling to provide a better customer service.

There is no word about the pricing yet.

I tried to pick mine up this morning but they never changed my appointment time like they said they would. However, even if they had, I don't think I could have gotten it anyway as they were behind on appointments since the system was going super slow. Now I have to wait until I get off work which makes me sad panda.

I got my EVO this morning to just try out with sprint.... I am a iPhone lover, but the EVO is really good. I def. think it hangs with the iPhone 3gs that I have now. I have never had anything android so I was a bit worried, but the EVO really impressed me(not to mention the huge HD screen!!!!)! BUT when then new iPhone comes out I feel like the tables may be turned, just gonna have to wait for monday to make any decisions!

nothing worth mentioning!
