that's essential for me as a new learner..
I just order hero from my singaporean friend to be brought to indonesia.
And I read that original ROM is having some lag.
Can you please double the favour..
and teach me how to update the ROM?
and whether is it original HTC update or 3rd party like modaco, etc that I should use?
Thanks again, dude :P
Joelle, 15 Oct 2009Does this phone has chinese language?It has chinese, but you have download an app called "custom locale" to bring it up, and you can do this without rooting the phone.
the phone itself can read chinese also you can download google pinyin ime to type chinese.
The resolution could be higher, maybe that's why third party app's don't look so nice as made for iPhone.

Every app will be installed seperately and can be found on it's icon in the menubar. Good luck & have fun
a quick search on the internet, seems a lot of people having problem with the 3.5mm headphone jack.. any issue for those who already own it here?
I also heard that new HTC Hero that come with latest firmware cannot be rooted. true?
HTC Hero wins Gadget of the Year and Phone of the Year at T3 Gadget Awards... This phone ROCKS..... it evens beats iPhone 3GS.... :) cheerz
i heard there is a lot of issue for this HTC Hero. Dead pixel, bad battery life, bad built... is it true?
Hi boys and girls I'm a iPhone 3g owner and getting a bit fed up with it my contract is up in the next few months so I am thinking about getting the hero don't fancy the 3gs nice but same old same old has anyone gone from the 3g to the hero and what do you think if you did.which would you reccomend the 3gs or the hero. Thanks in advance for anyone posting a reply......
Do I need to register first to get the Android Market? and how to do that? Pleasee somebody help me with prompt reply, because I want to order from a frind overseas! Thanks A LOT!
I am really interested in buy this phone, but I was looking at it,in sprint and I wonder if somebody know the specs and if is possible to manipulate the MP 3 Player, I mean equalization,presentation and all that stuff Thanks Carlos
I just want to ask what is android market and google apps? How to put them in your phone (hero or magic)?
Are they joined as one, or you can have one without the other?
Thanks for the favour..
Hi, I have had the Hero for about 1 month now. and I love it. my only issue would be battery life it is way to short, I have to take the charging cable to work because my bus ride to and from work sucks up to much power. I dont have the new firmware on mine yet but I am having no trouble and I have loads of apps.
I love the chin I think it makes the phone stand out in fact people keep asking me what phone is that. I dont know if anyone else has noticed but I seem to be better at using the phone with my left hand than my right even though I am right handed it just feels better. All in all great phone!!

you cant do file trabsfer for bluetooth but there are apps in the market that enable it for dream and magic right now... surely they will update it for the Hero...

Is it just by browsing the update and downloading?
And can you transfer file via Blue tooth or not?
14 yr HP lover, 13 Oct 2009OH... i am really sorry, i am not that sure about the first qn.. I am not an IT expert though,... moreHappy to see your answer after a while (:
anyway, my first question was, whether you put Hero's ROM on your Magic, so it can have Sense UI, multitouch, and even lue tooth like Hero has! I watched it in youtube and it looks awesome.
Judging by your answer, I suppossed you haven't done it. Anyway you seem like your original Magic save for the battery :).
And yes I know that Magic can upgrade to 1.6 donuts. Is the Hero also capable to do so?
Enjoy your phone, while I'm still only can dream about it. Since here in Indonesia we don't have Android market and google apps :(
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2009Hi boy :)
I want to ask, since you look smarter than 14 years old..
Can you put HERO ROM ... moreOH... i am really sorry, i am not that sure about the first qn.. I am not an IT expert though, not one who is computer smart, but one who is really good with HP specs and many more...
Actually, i was hoping i could be reviewing some phones and sort of these things... Anyway,
your second one was whether android phones working systems are good.
DEFINTELY they are. I am actually using the magic now... GOODS and BADS.. But obvious, many many more GOODs
No bluetooth transfer..
Battery life is quite short though,
i am not sure whether is it mine or the battery, but after usage to browser, the market, and downloading of applications, the battery will drain quite quickly like after one day after a full charge, you will need to charge again.
NOT SURE WHETHER IS IT BAD or GOOD, but to me, it is a good, that the whole body of the magic is glossy while the Hero is not. But i love the glossy-ness as it looks real nice.
moreover, there is the absence of the protruding chin. Take note,with the chin, you will have some pocket problems.
Video taking is not that good, but the pictures taken can be comparable to my previous 5mp phone! but it may be the screen resolution though..
Oh ya, sometimes, when you are not connected to wi-fi, it will do a short internet connection via your line with the service provider, for me ( Singtel ) and it may lead to charges of the data usage.
Android platform is made that it keeps all applications 'running'then after using the application, you either really exit it by pressing the back button or just leave it to run by pressing the home button.
I love the trackball
The android market was very organised, almost everything was free, you can also get free updates like now, from the 1.5 to the Donut 1.6 plus the search box and many more to come!
I think i have said those things that i liked and not liked about the magic, but to me, i love it.
