Alaska's ACS Now Offers HTC Hero, Special Android Plans

We don’t know how many of you guys reside in Alaska but we figured we’d pass this along anyways.  Alaska Communications Systems (ACS) has announced the arrival of the HTC Hero as well as new, dedicated rate plans for Android handsets.  ACS is not the first smaller/regional carrier to offer Android phones, but the introduction of a specialized Android plan intrigues us.

Called ACS Android Life, the monthly plan includes unlimited nationwide talk, unlimited data, unlimited text, “exclusive ACS Android Life benefits” for $99 per month.  Family plans are somewhat discounted at $188 per month for the first two Android Life users.  Additional lines are $79 each.  It’s not known what the “exclusive benefits” are so if you happen to live in Alaska, hit us up!

We did find a neat little mini-site called “U of Android” which looks to help educate their subscribers on all things Android and Hero.  It includes photos, videos, and more to get users off on the right foot.

    GCI is offering the same phone too. The phone wont work in a large portion of the state. In southeast AK we only have access to the 850 band. I'll have to stick with my trusty unlocked G1 for now.

      GCI Hero will actually be on the Alaska Digitel network, because it's a CDMA phone. I totally don't get what they're doing. It seems like false advertising because the Digitel 3G footprint is even tinier than the GCI 3G footprint. ACS has 3G coverage all across Alaska (including Southeast) so the phone is going to work down there. They have especially strong coverage over the water there. I got one the other day and it works fine…?

    have a used HTC Hero for Sprint for sale. The phone is in perfect condition except for the decal on the end button is starting to chip off. The phone comes with an invisible shield full body (still in box), seidio extended battery, and two silicone cases, blue in color, original battery also. It also comes with all original accessories included when the phone is new. The phone is in perfect working condition. I am selling because I was given a different phone for Christmas. NO Interntional shipping. Alaska and Hawaii will be charged more

    The U of Android seems to come directly for Cellular South. If you look at the photos, they have Cellular South icons on them.

    When will ACS be updating the Operating system in their Android phones to 2.2 or 2.3
