Sprint Htc Hero - Messaging Slow After 2.1 Upgrade / Make It Fast


I used mybackup trial version to backup text messages, call logs, apps, etc and then upgraded to 2. 1. After the upgrade my text message app takes a good 10-30 seconds to enter into. I can still see them fine and quickly in the status bar and the widget, but the app takes forever to load now, even if it's already running and i'm just switching people. Anyone have any suggestions?

Htc Hero - Messaging Become Very Slow / Speed This Up

Have a small issue regarding messaging. Mine has become really slow now. Even after i rooted to froydvillain1. 3. There are around 5000 messages and the problem is i want to keep them all because of some of the priceless conversations i've had. Any idea how to speed this up? New memory card? Install a kernel? Update rom? Apps?

Sprint Htc Hero Upgrade Question

I'm still running off of the old 1. 5 os and wanted to know if anyone had upgraded thru sprint to the 2. 1 os and what they liked or didn't like about the new system and any problems that came up afterwards - if any. One of the things i hoped they changed was the limited phone contact entry. I'd like to be able to enter a home phone/cell/work phone number for a few of my entries like i could on my old palm centro - all one can do with the hero is enter a single phone number and im number to each contact.

Sprint Htc Hero - When 2.1 Is Released - Officially - And Upgrade - Will It Wipe Your Phone

I wanted to use a shorter title for the thread, but i didn't want to draw the ire of the community for thinking that i was giving new info on 2. 1

In all seriousness though, with all the threads on 2. 1 and related topics. When it is finally officially released from htc/sprint and it is available to us, the hero owners, to download and install on our units (most likely through pc/usb upgrading and not ota. Not that it matters for this question) will it wipe the phone?

The reason i am asking is because this is, in fact, a completely new os and not just an mr patch. I have posed this very question to htc tech support when asking about another issue and they said that it will not wipe info/settings/etc from the phone. I don't know what to think about that.

With my last winmo phone, when the sprint rev a upgrade came out, it blew out everything from the phone and it was a fresh start. When i upgraded my imac w/ snow leopard, it didn't change a thing. With that comparison, i guess i can believe both sides, however, i was curious if anyone on here has a definitive answer through experience that it wouldn't wipe all the info. Hasn't there been a few os changes already with android for the earlier phones? I'm sure there's info out there somewhere, but i was hoping to hear it from someone on here.

This is kind of a relevant question, because if it is going to require a complete wipe, i have absolutely no reason not to root, since i'd have to go back to stock ruu to get the upgrade, which would require a fresh wipe of the phone. I'll most likely still be rooting this week, however, i'm still curious about what the upgrade to 2. 1 is going to require.

Htc Evo 4g - Stock Ringtones Way Too Fast / Setting To Slow Down How Often It Repeats

Is there some setting to slow down how often a ringtone repeats? Like, their frequency is way too fast. I've tried all the stock ringtones, and even imported my old blackberry ringtone but the problem persists.

Hmm, that sounds kind of convoluted. If a ringtone is [ta da], the problem i'm having is that it's [tadatadatadada] instead of [ta da] [ta da]

I'm not sure if that helps at all. But do any of you have any idea how to fix this?

Sprint Htc Hero - Make Forwards Emails As Attachment

When i reply or forward an email to someone, it attaches the original email as an attachment rather than a continuation of the email. I do have "reply with original text" checked.

I noticed i can't change the format type from plain text, so i don't know if that is part of the problem.

Does anyone know how to make replay's and forwards a continuous email?

Sprint Htc Hero - Phone Not Making A Peep / Make It Sound

So i have been using my phones 16gb memory card to listen to music on my computer at work for most of the day today. I go out to lunch and bring the phone with me as usual. I notice that i have 5 missed calls and 9 texts that have come in over the last few hours. My phone did not make a peep and i now realize why, with the memory mounted via the computer the phone has no access to the memory where the ringtones are stored and thus the phone has no way to make sound.

Htc Magic - Phone Battery Discharge Fast / Make It Normal

I just got my magic last weekend. I think i am experiencing problems with the battery. I have to recharge the phone every day. I even recharged it before i went to bed last night, and when i woke up the battery was already empty (after 7 hours). I have turned off vibrating, sound, wi-fi, gps and the phone was in hibernate mode (screen was turned off).

I have read that the battery discharge fast, but this can't be normal?

Could there be any apps or something which are making the battery run out so fast?

Htc Hero Messaging Problem

I have a htc hero and i have been problems with the messaging. The messages are out of sequence and sometimes are delayed. I will send a message out at 7:40 (as it is timestamped on my phone) and i receive a reply to a question i asked saying it was sent at 7:38. Also, sometimes i do not receive it for 5 minutes and it still shows as being sent prior to mine. How do i fix it or does anyone have the same problem?

Firmware Upgrade Phone's Not Compatible - Htc Hero

So i'm using a white hero from europe i believe but it doesn't function as it should (i'm referring to the ones on youtube). For instance, i can't drag an app on homescreen to delete it. The red delete box does not appear at the bottom nor can i drag it to begin with. Also, i can't use the pictures i downloaded to backgrounds folder on my sd card to use as wallpaper or lockscreen even when i'm using linda file manager.

And i only had english to choose from at the beginning when setting it up. I went to htc websites from us, uk, and europe for firmware upgrade and my phone's not compatible with any of them. This is my very first smart phone, so if i could get some help, i'd appreciate it very much!

Slow Response Of Discussion Group / Make It Better

I assume that others have noted this as well - you make a post and it doesn't appear for hours sometimes. And then a whole bunch of posts will materialize at once, when the server catches up somehow.

Kinda irritating, what?
You'd think google could make their own group for their own os respond better than this!

New Orange Rom Upgrade For Hero

Htc tweeted yesterday that a new rom upgrade is available for hero users on orange. I looked on their site and there it is, but there are no details of what the rom upgrade provides. My phone seems to be working just find so i'm not going to bother unless it's a really big step change. I just wondered, has anyone updated or have any additional info? Would appreciate any details. And please, to a certain forum member, no snide comments mate. You're wasting your time. You know who you are.

Rooting A Sprint Htc Hero

My friend has a sprint htc hero running android 1. 5, software version 1. 56. 651. 2. He just got the phone and wanted me to root it for him, but sadly, i can't find a "one stop shop" for how to downgrade this phone, get root access, upgrade the phone, and install a custom rom on it. I've heard that cyanogen won't work on heros, so i guess that could be out of the question (or can it work?). So basically, what i'm looking for is this:

1. How do i downgrade his software version?
2. How do i root it? (I'd prefer not to use adb, if at all possible)
3. Which rom should i put on his phone after i root it?

Sprint Htc Hero - 2.1 - .6 Great Results

I know theres already a thread about the ota update, but it seems to be only concentrated to the root loss, and since im getting a replacement hero in the next few days, i figured id bite the bullet and give it a shot.

So far, cant seem to find any cons about it yet. Bt connection to my headset and car work as they did on 1. 5. The text lag seems to have been fixed (im not even a fast texter and i was out-typing it by atleast one word on the orig 2. 1). Sprint navigation is now back on my phone. Pinch to zoom to see all 7 screens actually works now, as opposed to taking atleast 3 trys to get it to recognize it previously. Since i originally updated to 2. 1, i never thought id say this, but the phone actually works now. Well enough that when i get the replacement, i might go ahead and do it (assuming it keeps working like this, i have no reason to root)

I just did the update a few minutes ago, so ill try to run outa my phone for the rest of the night and see how it holds up, but as of now, its as good/better than it was at 1. 5

Sprint Htc Hero - Always On Data Setting

Can anyone tell me what exactly turning off the "always-on data" setting does? Specifically, what functionality would i lose by disabling this? I already have peep set to download things manually, i have a mail account that checks my email every 30 minutes, and i don't even have the facebook app on my phone. But, will this affect the "people" app from downloading facebook updates, new contact pictures, etc?

Sprint Htc Hero - Looking For A Contact Widget - Where To Get It

I had gotten the hero back in october, but didn't give it a chance and returned it, and couldn't hold out any longer and giving it another shot. When i had it before i had a widget on my homescreen for contacts and what this did was it scrolled either left or right, it was a small widget, maybe 1x2 (?) Icons and you scrolled until you got to the contact in the center and clicked on it to call. I have tried to find this on the market to no avail this time and was hoping someone would know what i was talking about and direct me to where to find this widget or even what the name of it is.

Sprint Htc Hero - How To Mount On Tripod

I just downloaded a time lapse camera app for my new hero and it works like a charm. Problem is, if you don't have anything handy to prop it up against, it's pretty much useless. I was wondering if anyone came up with a way to secure the phone to a standard tripod mounting bracket/screw. I came across some nice ones for the iphone, but i think the hero is just a tad smaller.
