After using the HTC Hero for nearly 2 years, it seems that this phone really has some issues on memory space with every application installed only on the phone memory. It was also found out that one of the most disk space consumed was the contacts and also the sms/mms that were on the phone.
So in short, what can one do to clear the unnecessary usage of space. Do a factory reset? Well, it works but maybe just before you do that you would want to backup your contacts that are on the phone (yes, as some saved their contacts on the phone.. one of them would be me).
Surprisingly, after searching the web for solutions, most gave solutions of downloading an application which to me is tedious and unnecessary. The simplest way would be as followed
On your menu, select People
Press MENU and select IMPORT/EXPORT
Export the phone contacts to SD card (You can choose the option from your phone or your SIM)
That is all there is to it. Saving your contacts is easy. Now just backup your contacts and get it ready for import the next time you wanted to.

What are the steps to connect to setup the HERO as a USB Modem?
Before continuing, here are some major steps you need to take and download before continuing. Download HTC Sync software for the HTC Hero from the HTC main site. Install it and ready to go.
Once HTC Sync is installed, on the Hero device.
Browse to Settings –> Wireless Controls and enable Mobile Network Sharing.
Now connect the Hero to the PC via USB cable. Windows will detect the new hardware automatically and install an “HTC Remote NDIS Network Adapter”
Simple? You can now use your HTC Hero now as a Modem. Trouble is that maybe your Windows can’t locate the drivers specifically to automatically install the HTC Remote NDIS Network Adapter.
