I -had- this problem, but do not anymore.
It went away when I started using Honeybun with the alternate Overclock option. The original overclock kernal we were using actually made the problem worse, while the newer oc kernal seems to have fixed it entirely.

I had this same exact problem - no joke. It was one of the biggest frustrations I had with the stock 2.1 Sense UI. I have since rooted and tried a few different ROMS and I haven't seen the issue at all since; everything seems to now be working how you would expect a phone to work.

The call lag was introduced in the first 2.1 update from sprint (118mb file that must be installed from computer.) The secound small over the air update fixed this call lag issue. If you have not run the check for updates button on your phone in a while it might be worth a try. Be aware that this secound update also removes the hole in 2.1 that allowed hero owners to root (unless there is a new procedure i am unaware of.) So you might want to deal with the call lagg if you are going to root in the future.

Did you try using a home screen manager other than SenseUI before you rooted? I'd be interested to find out if it works correctly without SenseUI but with the default ROM. I still have the SenseUI home screen manager running but I really don't have anything left on the 3 screens I actually use that requires it.

The problem occurs when the phone runs out of memory. Add the 'Running Services' widget to your desktop and get in the habit of checking it. In the bottom-left corner you should usually see "16MB + 70MB" or some such combination. Sprint must've installed some apps (SprintTV?!) that leak memory. Whenever I'm having the problem I go into Running Services and if it says "16MB + 0.0 MB" I kill one of the current processes, and everything clears-up. Usually it's "SprintTV" I kill, but I also sometimes kill "Amazon MP3" or "CM Manager" (I think that's the voicemail indicator).

...And it seems so far that all of my frustrations have gone away . Well, except for the lack of a proximity sensor - that one really drives me mad.

Regardless, it's a long lag. MUCH longer than is acceptable. I should not have to root or use custom ROMs to fix an issue that Sprint allowed to be publicly released.
Fix it, Sprint. Now.

However I would agree that even 30 seconds is much too long to wait on the phone to respond. I never had that problem and I own 2 heros. I rooted for completely different reasons.
I doubt Sprint will address this in the future either. Just my .02

Is this happening when you first boot up the phone? cause thats normal. If its happening after your phones been on for a while, then yeah, thats not normal, and thats the official crap that Sprint/HTC put out as a stock operating system. Rooting/ROM will make you a much happier camper.
