Of course I'm usually in class leaned over shadowing it haha.

Cool...i kind of figured i was thinking about it backwards, i just wanted to make sure it wasn't just my device.

thanks

Re: HTC Hero Reviews

Just to let everyone know, I tend to use ... to tie my thoughts together. I apologize up front.

I got the Hero yesterday for my wife. Let me just say first off...it is really pretty kick ***. It's fast. Responsive!! And so far, she is really liking it. (I am too)

I really like the Sense interface. I'm not a programmer...I am more of a tweaker. I love swapping rom's on my TP...I am really thinking about picking a Hero up for myself.

Do you guys think that eventually it will be unlocked so we can custom flash?

Re: HTC Hero Reviews

Keep the reviews coming guys. I'm really thinking about getting this... once I get a job.. lol But I played with it in the store and thought it was very comfortable feel. Nice large screen and love the apps available. I was surprised that they have so many available, apparently 10k and 95% of them are free from what I've been told. I just hope I wont miss my keyboard.

Re: HTC Hero Reviews

I've had the phone about 24 hrs, and so far so good. The hang-up with my face problem that I had with the Vogue is gone, but I still accidentally hi tthe keys. Salesguy said there was some sensor that detecs when the phone is against your face to stop those problems, but either the sensor didn't take into consideration that skin gets cold in cold weather, or its not working.
It's out of the box configuration is way better than all of the cooking I had done on my vogue.
It is FAST! as long as you have signal, that is. It also buzzes without turning on completely when you get a text.
I was worried about the touchscreen keyboard, because that was always a PIA for me, but the new touch keyboard is bigger, and by rotating the phone to landscape, the keys get even bigger. Again, great for cold weather texting!
The downside is that I have to figure out how to customize. Not to the extent that I needed before, but I am an artist and I like to have my own background, font and clock. I miss the HTCcustomizer. (Anyone know of the Hero/droid equivalent?)

Oh, one other thing- I could only get the usb mount to work with vista, and had to resort to taking out the sd card and putting it in my XP laptop directly to move things from pc to phone. Any thoughts why? I did restart to make sure all was well. Had to download the htc sync from their website because phone-> pc wasn't working.
