I've had this phone almost 2 years and to be honest, it's a pretty decent phone for what I paid. I got it used for 200gbp(pounds) on eBay UK. I had it rooted and installed a custom ROM (I use VillainROM 2.1 Eclair) and it runs smooth as punch. I also overclocked the CPU using Antutu so instead of the stock speed of 500something mhz, I usually have it set to On-Demand, idling at around 510Mhz and maxing out at 724Mhz. This keeps sense nice and snappy, apps load without a hitch. The battery life on it, if you're using Mobile Data, is horrendous. Using the stock battery I am lucky to get a full 6-7 hours of light usage out of it. Using an extended battery I have had up to 26 hours, it was 1550mAh. It's survived a fall down a flight of concrete steps, with only a marginal scratch along the top of the metal frame. Screen is mint after heavy daily usage. Only complaint is low RAM, but it's an old device. These are great to play around with!! I highly reccomend them
First of all, this phone is heavily outdated so don't expect any updates.
Second it's the best phone I've ever had. After rooting procedure you can install whatever ROM you desire. Even the latest sense ROMs are starting to be very usable and have all the features working. Probably the best buy I've ever had.
is anyone experience with the data connection? my htc got a problem with data connection; even the gsm signal is very strong, the device cannot detect the data (gprs/3G). please share..
Awesome phone when i got it, has gotten slow, but still works fine. Unfortunately only supports android 2.1 so no apps to SD :(
I'll just have to wait to upgrade to the newest or the Desire HD, I don't think I could leave HTC or Android ever. No problems like Blackberry and I just hate apple so that takes away iphones.
Can anybody tell me, whether indroid applications can be installed in card or they are only associated with internal memory
Recommend not to get it. Awful battery life. Making it they the day with this phone is accomplishment. Internal memory is too low. Phone is very slow. Just an awful experience and the reason why I'm leaving android. They pump out so many phones there is no guarantee you will ever get the next update and what will happen if you do. Like the last update deleted the factory installed applications on it. Had to do a factory reset to get them back and I wasn't the only one. This phone will never see another update in its life either.

bablu, 08 Sep 2011i wanna buy HTC phone but im really confused which model i should buy HTC hero or HTC wildfireI wouldnt buy htc hero or a wildfire (me myself ownes a htc hero since almost 2 years back) I think that the CPU is to bad so its much lagg and its slow. I would recommend to buy a phone with atleast 1 GhZ CPU if its running on android.
