Noah, 20 May 2010People this is an awesome phone and is obviously the best looking phone out there in the marke... moreI have got htc hero with android 1.5 in Uk can anyone tell me how can i upgrade to 2.2? and also how can you use bluetooth to transfer files?>
Android 2.1 (Eclair) update is officially announced for HTC Hero Sprint. It now ready to download from HTC website!
If you want buy the hero i say (never buy brown hero)
You can update your platform to Android 2.2 and see different things to your hero mobile.this platform is very good for 3d games and you can play the ps1(playstation 1) games for your mobile phone.because hero had a powerful CPU. I hope you have better choose.
People this is an awesome phone and is obviously the best looking phone out there in the market today. I've updated it to 2.1 via custom firmware. Now its like a beast :D ! Bluetooth transfer is a breeze. I sent a 5mb song today within a min via bluetooth. If you want to get the best out of it, stop complaining and get your brains to the HTC and Andriod forums. Happy booting!
I was wondering.... how do you do bluetooth transfers. My phone only pairs but never connects to other devices?
Does anyone know when the upgrade for android software is coming outfor this phone??
I love it I am a bit disappointed that the bluetooth don't work because I like sharing music with my friends. I love the silly Apps but I did pay for one call open house full a bit confused and I don't understand it.
Can any one recommend any descent Apps at all.
over all gud fone but can any one tell me how shell i set up mms setting.....m driving crazy for that...nyone plz realiable one...
Yes! I think also! HTC will provide us Android 2.2 (Froyo) letter.
Why waiting for 2.1 Eclair? 1.5 cupcake is still now cool except file transfer via Bluetooth.
Hope for 2.2 Froyo update!
Good phone overall.. however should also have LED Flash... Can Be launched as an upgraded version.. Looks are good... overall 7.5/10 rating... Good Job HTC...
can't wait fo eclair, and hope htc will give hero android 2.2 froyo later-on
Yes it does have bluetooth, but it only has the capability to connect to bluetooth headsets etc. not other phones. There is an app on the market called bluetooth transfer (something along those lines) but this does not work too well.
I think HTC Hero is a Mobile Phone / PDA not easy to use all its capabilities by ordinary people. For instance, the synchronisms with Windows XP /Outlook data are further more a problem for me because at the Store Centres or Technical Assistance of Operators, they have not formation about this equipment. Neither with his Pocket, the Supplier send complete Instructions how we can use them (We must go to the Internet to obtain something). The Operative System Android adopted, seems to me more a problem than a solution. And finally, my hope is, that HTC will not crash between one/two years of use, with â€śhumidity in Processorâ€ť as happened with my first Qteck S100, (1 year), next HTC3600 (2 years) and the Communication Operator, that sold them, assumes no responsibilities, because the respective general guaranties have a â€śspecialâ€ť reserve for this type of crashesâ€¦
