    Sprint said there would be no 2.2 upgrade for the HTC Hero. Can the community use this to make one?

    SPRINT was happy to take my $179 for the HERO 6 months ago (its $49 or LESS now..) and didn't tell me I couldn't upgrade it to a new Android version. I feel that Spring has NO integrity in honest communication and will switch when my contract is up. HTC should have also made mention about limiting the updates for the phone which was touted and SOLD as the Hottest new thing… I feel taken.
