Re: Sprint HTC Hero Unboxing Video.

The headphones thing I don't understand either. They could have included some crappy ones, which would have cost all of $0.50. But the case isn't a big deal. Most phones don't come with one. The TP2...no case...Palm Pre...no case...Treo series...no case. Did the G1, and MyTouch 3G come with cases? I plan on getting a silicone case, and putting a screen protector on it, and being done.

I know they didn't include like anything. Just the basic stuff. I would've at least thought it would've included a case.

Well i hope sprint isnt going to price this thing like the freakn touch pro 2( 450 ) and the instinct hd ( 350) before rebate.lol I personally dont believe in mail in rebates, so i dont count that.. but i would not pay over 299 for a smartphone when in 6 months u get can it way cheaper on craigslist or ebay... anyway rant aside i think sprint is getting cheap on us while raising the price.lol but price u pay for cheaper plans i guess. i will stay a gen behind and get whatever cheaper later.lol

The price of the phone has been known for a little while now. $430 full retail, $280 with $150 discount, and $180 after MIR. If you want to skip the MIR, go to Best Buy, and you will pay $180, plus taxes. So, this phone is a good bit cheaper than both the TP2, and the Instinct HD.

Re: Sprint HTC Hero Unboxing Video.

I for one do not see the need for a case or SD card - my needs in many cases are not the same as the next person's.

Re: Sprint HTC Hero Unboxing Video.

Dear William,

Thank you for your reply.

I apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced due to breakdown in communication.

The HTC Hero will not work with the add on data pack available on your account. You must change the plan to enjoy the features of new HTC Hero phone as mentioned in previous email.

We value your business and appreciate the opportunity to serve you.

Sincerely,
Jaxon M.
Sprint

Re: Sprint HTC Hero Unboxing Video.

Can someone explain to me how these people get to play with phones that are not even in the market?

I think they send it to them earlier so they can like review them and show it to people that want to buy the phone. Also, Sprint and Best Buy and stuff get them before so they can train their employees.
