    Where in Minneapolis are you? My friend with an Iphone has all sorts of issues here...especially in Uptown whereas with Sprint I never have them.

      I've had the Hero for almost a month, and can't recomend Android phones any more highly. I understand that iPhones have more apps, but that will change. Google has things going in the right direction. If I had known the Nexus One was comming, I would have likely waited and gotten an unlocked one for my Sprint account (the latest and greatest version of Android and a better processor than the Hero), but I still can't complain about my phone...

        north metro, as much as people say its the network, every network has its bad spots and horrible service. I have been plenty of places where my at&t phone was the only one that got a good signal or done field work with coworkers who said cell phones don't work there but I managed to contact our boss with a question.

          So far the processor on mine has only been noticeable if I am downloading a few apps at once. The browsers are fast as hell (I use both Oracle and the included one) and with the apps I got I hardly use it anyways. (the Newspaper one is great...I can read like 200 different papers whenever I want including the Strib, NY Times and a bunch of international papers) The one complaint is the vibrate is rather weak but there is an app where I can customize the vibrate so I just have it repeat a pattern a few times so I notice. (and I have a different pattern made for phone calls so I can tell the difference)

          I am obviously still tinkering since I got this yesterday but I have had no issues of yet.

          SG,

          North metro is a great spot for all services these days...when I lived in the burbs up there though a few years back almost none worked. As the burbs expanded west and north they blanketed the area with towers and so on.

                And SG if by North Metro you mean anywhere near Anoka or Coon Rapids...well lets just say I wouldn't want to dip (pun intended) into that gene pool
