    Hi,

    I currently posses a jailbroken iPhone with no plan :( because I have Sprint and when my upgrade comes I want to get the Moment or Hero, but I don't know if I should just get rid of my iPhone all together? The Moment and the Hero both are stuck on 1.6 :( and I need at least 2.0! Some reviews would be quite helpful!!! (Youtube, Article, IDC) My upgrade comes in June... and I really dont want the Hero because I need a keyboard!

    Thanks in Advance,
    Chase

    P.S. Can't leave Sprint [(Cheap Unlimited plan, great coverage, and so on (but they do have over-priced phones)] + stuck in family plan with aunt, uncle, and sister THEY NEED TO OFFER CHEAP *** COLLEGE STUDENT DISCOUNTS!

    There's no point in keeping an iPhone you can't use. It won't work on Sprint, and since you're not leaving them, might as well sell it and get some $ out of it.

    Why do you "need" 2.0 and a keyboard? Both phones were planned to get OS updates, but afaik, they haven't gotten them yet. There's always rooting. I'd say, if you really "need" those things, either wait for a new Android phone to come to Sprint that has a keyboard and 2.0, or get the Moment and look into rooting it, since the Hero doesn't have a keyboard.

    Also, to go along with MacMini2009, if you can live w/o a physical keyboard, the Hero is very nice, and Sense UI is gorgeous.

    Sell your iPhone and use that cash to pay for your new phone. If not....donate it to one of your friend's upcoming bday :D

    IF I decideded to get rid of my iPhone what software would I use what about all those over priced iPhone apps? I managed to scramble together $150 (thought I didn't have it) so I think I will get the moment return it within 30 days if I don't like it and grab me a hero :) [UI sounds great + HTC layout]

    The Sense UI is very nice. I think it is way better than the default Google UI.

    SenseUI is the only nice thing about the Hero.

    It is a slow device. The "multitasking" brings it to a halt, forcing you to restart it.

    The marketplace leaves much to be desired.

    I have been trying to hold out for 2.1, but I don't know if I can handle it anymore. I am not happy about my switch, but it is what it is. I will moving back to iPhone when the next one comes this summer.
