Yes you can download free PDF manuals from HTC support website.

There are two versions of the phone: one with Cupcake Android and other ver 2.1. Check which update you phone has first and then click on the links below to open or right click and select save as to save the files.


HTC Hero



Quick Start Guide
User Manual (for both versions)


HTC Hero ( Android 2.1 )

Note: It will take few minutes to load the PDFs. I suggest you save them and read/ print later.

My htc hero is recognizing every wireless network except the one in my home. My 2 laptops and old phones are able to read the but my htc hero cant.


Make sure your network isn't hidden. Also, what mode is your networking running in? 802.11 (a,b,g,n). Trying putting it in mode b and see if you phone picks it up. Also, make sure that you haven't limited access to your wireless access point/router.
