How is this forum STILL here!
The HTC Hero is a GREAT phone! It was my first Android phone. I loved it but moved on to a Nexus S. But what I really want to know is how is this forum still shown while phones that came out after this are hidden?

I would like a Bionic though, but it is similar to the EVO isn't it?

Why is it here? Because people are locked into contracts, and still use it daily, but with the modifications and roots available, it is as good as new.
For you above, I'm running the Epic, rooted and rommed. Look hard at this phone, it does outperform the Evo in so many ways. If you read about the updates, they suck. If you hack, its great!! Personal preference - screen, camera, and no sense ui rock.
Anyway, my kids (read above, stuck in contracts for another year), couldn't take the speed, so I'm back in this forum. Now rooted and new roms, great
speed, new phone. So I'm very glad the mods and contributors are still here.
Use them, I got great help

My girlfriend and I are still somewhat proud owners of the Hero and the Moment. We upgrade in a few months and she has wanted the Evo since last year. We could not afford it at the time so she got the Hero. Its getting ugly because we are used to having the newest and hottest phones, now we are falling way behind. She finally agreed to let me root our phones, well mine and then a few days later she got a little envious. I also have a friend who works for a Sprint Store who still has a Hero.

It is the first CDMA android phone in the world so it has a HUGE following. See G1 for reference.
First GSM android phone, G1 = huge following
First CDMA android phone, HERO = huge following

HEY! I've had both of them! Had the G1, TMO decided to overbill me 3 months in a row and couldnt explain my random charges...
as for why:
sprint still sells the hero (well at least last time i was in a store a few weeks ago)
they still service the hero
a lot of people still have heros, and some want to root, mod, and get general help with them?

Hands down the Hero is a trusty phone that has a strong following. My only gripe is that it should have had better specs out of the box, but what can you do. The development community has done more than make this phone far more useable than it is out of the box and has allowed me to keep using it until it's time to upgrade

Although my Hero has been retired from daily use it still has a home on my coffee table as a media center remote. We run XBMC at all our TVs in the house and it is very handy having a spare Hero and G1 laying around. The Hero and G1 make ideal remotes for friends and family (I just use my Evo).See my screen

I still love my little phone. Been eligible for an upgrade for a long time but me wants LTE and NFC to run Google Wallet so I passed on the Epic Touch. I'll probably have to wait 7 or 8 months for both of those features but that's OK since my Hero has been so reliable.

Re: How is this forum STILL here!
I'm thinking to upgrade now and by the next eligibility LTE should be rolling out or rolled out enough to make it worth it.

You're probably right, magnus. I went to the Sprint Store last Monday and played with the E4GT. I had to have it so I plunked down the 2 Cnotes. The rep told me if I upgraded before Oct. 2nd with a standard upgrade, I can get my last annual upgrade next year at this time. No brainer. NFC will be more widely used by then, too.
So long, Hero. You have served me well. It was weird to downgrade from GB 2.3.5 to 2.3.4. I might set the Hero up for my wife so she can use WiFi tethering on it, but after she played with the E4GT, she wants one now, too.
