cellular_south_hero_cheapIt seems that those crazy folks at Cellular South are going to upstage Sprint by offering the same HTC Hero, a fantastic device, for a mere $99.99 with contract.  It has also opened up pre-sales for the Hero.

The device is offered on a $79.99 unlimited data, voice, and texting plan.  And if you get one of these smartphone plans, you can get a second unlimited smartphone plan for only $39.99.  You still need to buy the second Hero, but that’s a pretty good deal for families.

More info available at the Cellular South website.
