Putting My 3GS on Craig's List as we Speak

All I can say about this phone is that so far it is AWESOME!!Just bought it today and can not put it down.  Will post an update rating after more time with it.Wonder why HTC did not use this screen on the new Touch Pro 2?

This phone can do anything and everything. It works smoothly and downloads are free and instant. It takes a little adjusting for the keyboard if you have not used one like that before, but they have a great tutorial to teach you. MUCH better than the i-phone!!

Camera quality is AMAZING!!
Internet is fast...especially with wi-fi connection
GPS is super accurate
Light weight and thin
Comes with computer connection and charger
Battery life much better than motorola

Hero Takes a Bite Out of the Apple

Truly a Great Device! Screen resolution and camera/video quality are a major plus on the device! Since the OS was created 2 years ago, this being the first CDMA device, the OS is very smooth and already has 8,000+ applications available for downloading (many of which are free.) The HTC Hero truly allows you to customize your device to meet your needs! You have the ability to have several different "scenes" in which you can customize: work, play, social and other screens; thus, its like having 7 devices in one! I definately recommend this device to all!
