Not to burst anyones bubble......

Spoke to my direct Verizon IDR and got the scoop on the upgrade. Apparently HTC's Sense UI isn't cooperating with Android 2.1 a.k.a. Snapdragon. So it looks like it could be delayed until May or June. Paranoid

Unfamiliar Lights

Had my phone plugged into the car, while driving I noticed the Orange light was blinking back and forth from Orange to green . Has anyone had this happen to them? No other notifications were present at the time, thanks

Google Talk

Any way to erase UR conversations without having to sign out. My buddy has the Droid and his phone has an option to erase his conversations but I can't seem to one on the Eris . Thanks

Eiris voice mail

Ok, love the eris, is there a way to do a quick auto-empty of the voice mail? I've got 40 messages and not enough time to sit and listen to each one.

Much thanks.

Bugs

I've had my Eris for not quite 5 days now, and I've noticed a lot of quirks/possible bugs. I'm wondering if I may just have a bad unit, or if this is a problem with Eris in general or this version of the OS, or if it's Android in general. Here is what I've found so far:

- A couple of days ago, my email accounts just disappeared. I went to check email, and it wanted me to set up a new account. Both accounts that I had previously set up were just gone.

- A couple of times, the phone has completely frozen up so I couldn't unlock it. So far this has only happened when it was charging, plugged into my PC via USB. Eventually after a few minutes, it came back to life, but still an annoyance.

- I have not been able to get it connected to an...

Email accounts disappearing?

Just a couple of hours ago, I went to look at my email accounts on my phone (I have a Windows Live POP3 account and my work email, which is ActiveSync), and they had randomly disappeared. Whenever I tried to go into email, I got the setup screen because the accounts were just gone. Has anyone else experienced this issue? I did some research and found that it's happened to some Motorola Droid users, but I haven't found anything specific to the Eris (which is running a different OS I believe).

I really love this phone and want to keep it, but it's got some interesting quirks (this possible email issue, no Bluetooth voice dialing, and I haven't gotten it to connect to any Wifi network yet. I've also been charging it twice a day with light u...

Bluetooth Voice Dialing

I just got my Eris on Saturday and have since discovered that there is no Bluetooth voice dialing. I did some research and it sounds like it's an Android OS issue (an email to HTC also confirmed this). Is there any planned upgrade to fix this, or is there a hack to get it working? I'm used to putting my Bluetooth headset on in the car, pushing the button, and having it activating voice dialing so all I have to do is say "Call [person] home" and it will work - basically, I don't have to touch my phone or take my eyes off the road at all. The Eris doesn't work that way.

Problem with google mail?

I just realized the only mail I'm NOT receiving on my Eris is my gmail. I get verizon mail, yahoo mail, etc. but not gmail. That's a little weird because i set up the gmail account before I got the phone and my contacts all appeared magically on my phone. It's not putting calendar appointments on the phone either which I know it used to do. Do I need to do something specific to get the automatic sync working? Thanks in aadvance.
