Rumor Mill: 2.1 coming to HTC Hero March 26

“My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it’s pretty serious.” ~ From Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

With all the supposed and speculated 2.1 update release dates going around, is anyone else starting to feel like this?

According to a HTC forum member, who spoke with a Sprint executive to troubleshoot his HTC Hero which did not have service, the  2.1 update may arrive on March 26th, 2010 for Sprint users instead of the late April. The conversation below: (emphasis added)

I just got of the phone with the advanced support at sprint because my phone did not have any service since this morning. They tried all the basic trouble shooting and then said that they had seen this issue before but that the new firmware will address this issue they also stated that reactivating the phone is a work around for now. I kept on asking about the firmware release and they finally released a date for the 2.1 firmware. He stated and confirm that this update will come on 03/26/2010.

However, this update is not officially confirmed, and if released will only be available for Sprint users for now. Other HTC Hero users might have to wait until the end of April to receive official OTA updates from HTC directly. Cross your fingers this happens sooner rather than later.
