Camera ssue - streaks in pics

Does anybody have any issues with the camera? I was very happy to be getting a 5MP camera, but most of my pictures are terrible due to streaks or lines in the pictures. Just curious if anybody else is experiencing this.

SMS timestamps

Does anyone know if there is a way to see what time a text message was sent or received if it didn't occur that day. On mine it only says "yesterday" or the date that it was sent/received.

Saving pictures from a text message to my phone album.

Can somebody give me some guidance here.... I can view the picture and save it as a contact icon, footprint or as my wallpaper, but for the life of me I can't just save it in my album. Am I missing something?...thanks.

Another question for Kevinski

And another -- thanks so much for your help! -- I downloaded the Handcent SMS app and the fonts as well, but when I did that, every time I would get a message it would come in twice, and give me the options to answer the text using the stock messaging or the Handcent messaging (which I could then set up as iphone or Android style, etc.) There seemed to be no way to stop this double-messaging, so I just deleted the Handcent apps but I really liked them.

Eris or Droid

I have been contemplating this decision for about a month or two and need some help swaying my decision.

I have played around with both phones exclusively and have both good and bad about them both on here. I love the Droid's screen and the OS however do not like the keyboard. On the flip side I looked at the Droid and immediately thought of the Voyager that I have now and I know they are no where close to being the same type of phone but am torn. I kind of big hands so I am not sure the Eris is a good choice with the all touch screen? Thought?

Help with pages

Ok, I'll admit, I did not RTFM. However, I've figured out most of this phone in less than a day. One thing I can't figure out is on one of my 7 screens (or pages) there is a HUGE (as in takes up the whole screen) mail account. I want a small little mail app to move to the screen with all of my mail accounts, and I can't figure out how to GET RID of that mail application (and why so big?) which is wasting one entire screen. Any suggestions? Other than that, I'm loving everything about this little electronic miracle. Very Happy

Data n Questions

Hey peps got a quick that I hope someone can answer for me.

I am a migrated customer from Alltel to Verizon and I am looking at buying an Eris. With Alltel I had a complete data plan on a non-smart phone. If I get an Eris it looks like I will have to buy either the
Email and Web package
or
the Total data package

The question is this....in addition to these two options it also lists options for messaging services. Does the Total data package include messaging or do I have to get a messaging package as well on top of all of that???

I guess I could go to the local store and ask but I'm just feeling lazy....well and hard to leave the house with a baby in tow

Thanks!!

Is battery a deal-killer?

The Verizon website has 448 owner/user reviews of the Eris Droid, and practically every single reviewer, whether the user likes, loves or hates this phone (90% love it), comments on the terrible battery life. Some users say it has to be charged at least once or twice daily with normal voice use and limited WiFi use.

What say you folks who have owned and used this phone daily for the past few weeks? Is there any chance HTC is working on some sort of a fix for this issue?

I'm sitting on the fence for now, but would appreciate your insight!

File Explorer

Is there a program similar to this on this phone? I'm trying to find out what all is running, or if there's a way to shut down individual programs. Or do they automatically close when you return to the home screen? Thanks

Text?

Does the eris keep your text messages/converstaions with people in chat like boxes?
Or does it store it in a regular inbox?
For example the iPhone keeps it in little boxes like if you were in a chatroom kinda. I'm just wondering because even though I will never get an iPhone, but I am currently waiting for my eris Very Happy

Opinions? Advice?

Well I currently have the LG enV touch, and for the most part it is a decent phone. I like the fact that it is not that bulky and the QWERTY keyboard, plus the touchscreen. My friend wants to start a contract with Verizon and she is going to buy the Motorola Droid for herself and offered to buy me the Droid Eris, which I am very found of. From what I have seen the Eris is a very customizable phone, and I love that in a phone. I like to make a phone like what I want and more like me, not what it lets me be. The commericals say that it is a "phone that gets you", and I was just wondering, is that true? Is it very customizable? Or just a little bit more then the others? Should I ditch my enV touch for a Droid Eris? I am not the type of person t...
