    ^^ I agree with pmarshall......just 'cuse the Milestone is coming that doesn't mean that the Hero is crap. In fact, with the 2.1 upgrade, the speed of the Hero should be increased due to the "lightness" of the new build. The only real difference between the Milestone and the Hero is ~200 mhz and a keyboard of questionable usefulness.

I called and they told me to take them to the store here in McComb, and swap them. I took them, and they told me that they couldn't file a claim, because if I swapped them, and CSouth techs decided there was nothing wrong with them, I would be charged, big time. The Discovery Center person wiped it (without backing up my prefs or data), and told me that to fix the problem with flipping to 1x, she had changed the phone from Hybrid, to EVDO-Only. I didn't get calls or texts for several days. Called CSouth, and they said "Sorry, if you put it on EVDO-Only, you can't get calls and texts, cause they are sent via 1x". If I put the Hero next to any other CSouth Smartphone, they hold service fairly steady, but my 2 Hero's swing badly. Sometimes even getting the dreaded No Service X. To be honesty, it reminds me of my AT&T service with the iPhones.

    I hope you're right with the 2.1 build...if we can get it anytime soon. Rooting this Hero is definately a task.

    Nope. And during the process of her setting it back up, it synced with my Google Contacts and wiped them out. Luckily I had exported them the week before on my computer. Lost my bookmarks, SMS Messages, Custom Scenes, etc. I am going to try again this week to root. My card just doesn't want to work as a Gold Card. Need to pick up a diffrent one.

    Sms, bookmarks, custom scenes are hard to back up in store but numbers...theres no excuse. Those are absolutly saveable. For 1, google backs them up and once you sign back into google...google sends numbers back to phone..no issues there. 2, we have a machine that removes the numbers and we can reinstall them. No reason you should have lost your contacts unless you didnt know your google info and you were locked out of your phone, thats the only reason you could lose your numbers. Apps for the most part are free and the ones that are purchased can be gotten back by the dev most of the time.

    Little off topic but were alone here in this thread so i don't see why we cant stray off key a few times. Anyone here into photography and have a semi serious DSLR? If so what equipment do you have?

    Thanks for the info. That gives me hope. What ROM are you using, and have you roamed outside of MS with it? Going to Disney next month. Sure would suck to root, and have no connection in FL for a week. Also, did everyone see where the Verizion HTC Eris is now having 2.1 rolled out OTA to it? Let's hope this puts a little fire under CSouth to get the Hero update out.

    I have a Canon XTi. Love it. Mine takes the Compact Flash cards. Wish it took the SD like the newer models. I will look after work and get you some exact specs on my lenses and flash.
