    This news comes via the official HTC website, who encourage those that are going to receive the update to use a Wi-Fi hot-spot if they do not have an unlimited data plan.

      So unhappy with HTC. Have called them several times about getting 2.1 update. HTC branded Hero. Can’t get updated unless I book it in for a bogus repair and post the phone to them. Why won’t they put the Rom update on the web or an ftp site. I can’t be without my phone for a week. Terrible typical Taiwanese focus on a product marketing spec sheet and stuff the customer experience. Samsung Galaxy S or S/E X10 or evenwindows 7 phone here I come.
