We've already reported that Cellular South would be offering the Sprint-styled HTC Hero to their 5 million customers around the gulf coast. That was already surprising news to us, considering we've never heard of the carrier before. But the news gets even better, Cellular South has just announced that they will price the HTC Hero at $99.99 (after $50 mail-in-rebate) with their new Smartphone Unlimited Plan ($79.99 with unlimited talk, text, and data). That sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
Our commenters have lauded Cellular South for their great network and affordability, so we wouldn't be too afraid to jump in (if you can). You can pre-order the device on their website but there's no firm release date yet, so we'll keep a watch for you guys!
This Pride Month, don't dismiss all of the rainbow logos and merchandise, but rather, consider embracing them as a way to show your support for your fellow human beings. We're all deserving of love, respect, and pride.
