I have had the phone for just over 5 months but it's been rarely used as I have the same phone for work, hence I'm now selling.

As it's unlocked, it will work on any network and I have also installed the latest version of Android (2.1) based on a custom 'ROM'. This means it has free sat nav, with turn-by-turn directions etc, Facebook integration, widgets, live wallpapers... the list goes on! It's stable and very slick.

There are some minor scratches but they're not really noticeable - see the photo:

This is one of the best Android phones out there and this is that extra bit special with the latest version of Android pre-installed!

Please post any questions you may have and I'll respond ASAP.

Btw, please also refer to Ebay for my 45 positive rating - in addition to a recent recommendation from a HotUkDeals buyer.

Trade for anything?
#2
No I'm afraid not but thanks for your offer. Not interested in purchasing?
#3
so this custom ROM business. What advantages does it have over the out of the box droid?
#4
The custom ROMs are advantageous because they're usually more up-to-date (Eclair 2.1 vs 1.5 on the out-of-the-box Hero or G2) and contain custom tweaks / optimisations and pre-installed software that mean the phone is even more useful than normal.

The ROM that is loaded on the phone I am selling has a whole raft of apps that you wouldn't get with a normal Hero. It also looks better and feels more slick (without all the HTC widgets).

cool. so if android is updated again, which im sure it will be, updating the handset doesn't pose any major problems?

I had a tmobile pulse for about 2 days as it was so laggy it was unbearable. much hesitation with this between screens and is the screen as responsive as the first gen iphone for example. that pulse kept missing key 'press's and it got right on my tats.
