Confused About Maps

OK, I know the Eris doesn't have the same turn-by-turn mapping that the Moto Droid has, so what kind of map program does it have? "Just" Google maps (non turn-by-turn version)?

Also, can you run VZ Navigator on the Eris? For me, VZ Navigator works fine and I don't need much more, but I've heard it won't work on the Eris.

Emulators

Just so people know; There are several free video game system emulators for Droid that work flawlessly on the Eris:
Super Nintendo (SNesoid):

Sega Genesis (Gensoid):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MLUsNQf-wE »
Nintendo (Nesoid):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W65pOlUGLxM »
Gameboy Advance (GameBoid):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guUDFyicg-I »
Gameboy Color (GBCoid) and Sega GameGear (Gearoid). Cool
Once you have the emulators installed, just get ROMs for them from sites, by searching at www.romfind.com, downloading, then playing them from your SD card.

Syncing with Outlook

I really want to get this phone. I currently have a Motorola with Windows Mobile. The OS is garbage but the main draw for me then and still a priority is to sync my calendar, contacts on my PC with Outlook. My wife and I both sync our phones to one common Outlook calendar, etc. The one thing holding me back is HTC's Sync capability. I will not be syncing to a corporate network, just a local Outlook. Only one of us has data access, so wireless sync is not an option. I understand that there is probably Google syncing on the Internet, but I do not want some very secure items in my contact info on the web. I was reading somewhere that Google has some kind of Exchange compatible server I could run to sync with. I am not sure about that or...

several questions about eris

I have a few questions about the droid eris with Verizon. I have been a Verizon customer for many years. I have never owned a smart phone and have been using an LG VX-8700 for several years. I am 53 years old and really am not interested in games and other such stuff. I am thinking of getting an Eris, though. I will be buying one from an individual, not from Verizon, because I don't do contracts anymore. I played with an Eris in the Verizon store a few days ago, and and with my limited knowledge of these smartphones, the Eris seemed nice and easy to use. I love when you touch a key on the virtual keyboard how the one you have touched shows up above your finger so you know you have hit the correct key. Very similar to an Iphone. My part...

Does anyone know?

I'm to be getting an Eris phone pretty soon here and I had some questions before I actually go out and buy it, is there any way that you can put a particular text alert for one person. For ex., like can I put a cute text alert tone for my husband and a different one for my mom or sister? I guess what I am trying to say is can I have a different text alert for everyone in my contacts, or does it have to be the same old boring text alert? Thanks

Latest Software Update

Can anyone let me know when they are expecting the new 1.6 software to be available for the Eris? So far there have been two updates on this phone, but no software update. I read here on another post that it should be in the beginning of 2010. Can anyone confirm a date? Thanks ;)

Apps not showing in market

Is it me or are eBuddy and IM+ missing from the market? Supposedly these are apps that would not show up for dev phones, but as far as I know, Droid Eris is not a dev phone, so I'm suspecting some weird region, device, or carrier block.

Trouble sending photos via text message...

When I take a photo with the Eris and try to text it to someone they never get it. They only get a blank text. Is it a compression problem? Maybe it's too big? (That's what she said.)

Can anyone help???!!!

I purchased my Eris yesterday and the woman at the store was suppose to get my yahoo set up for me and didn't. I have been trying since to do it myself. I have called customer servicce twice and spoke with three people that tried to walk me through the set up. Each time i try to set it up I get an error message saying my server is not responsding, I get the message when trying to configure the incoming and outgoing. I have merged my yahoo account with the gmail account but it is still not allowing me to see my emails and none of them are being sent to my phone. I really like this phone I upgraded from the storm and really don't want to go back! Confused

Voice dialing using BT headset

I just read a review on pcmag.com that said the Eris does not support voice dialing over a BT headset. It's hard to believe this is correct. Can someone confirm one way or the other? The lack of this capability would be a real deal breaker for me so I hope they're wrong.
