Silent TEXT notification??
One more thing, any good sites that you can talk about apps? I would like to know the difference between the free "Advanced Task Killer" and the $5 version.
Any difference in buying Eris now or after 2.0 or 2.1 update?
Or would it be better to wait and get an Eris that is sold after the update?
I don't mind waiting if there is a benefit.
Thanks to all.
or do i need to dl another app?
Returned after 1 1/2 Weeks
I came from an iphone 3GS and knew this was not the iphone killer but hoped it was close.
From the start I had issues retrieving email from my personal email account. I was forced to sign up for Gmail in order to use this phone.
The phone has issues DL attachments from Gmail and kept showing a blue question mark in place of the attachment. In my Verizon mail client the attachments would hang forever or fail to load from the server.
Neither Verizon nor Motorola could figure it out and said they were out of ideas.
Today it took 40 minutes to retrieve my email and then an error appeared at the top of the screen stating an error had occurred and then poof my ...

Eris -initial impressions
In fairly light use I'm getting good battery life (24+ hrs between charges). This is with wi-fi on, some calls, some texting, playing some music and a little web surfing. We'll see if this changes next week when I'm back at work (truck driver) and 3G is always on.
No problems connecting to computer to transfer files (with a Windows 7 system).
Touchscreen keyboard is nice in landscape (sideways) mode. Large keys, easy to adapt to for me as I never had a touchscreen before.
So far the only issues I have are the wi-fi doesn't always stay connected when phone is in sleep mode (a couple screen taps and it connects again but it is set to stay on) and the s...
Just ordered the Eris and now I'm wondering...
WordPerfect, Compass and level
Also, I read a review that said the Eris had a compass and a level. I don't see these (although Google Maps may well include the compass). Are they included are these in an app?
I am a first time smartphone owner and could not be more pleased with my Eris. Am a little confused over the ways to achieve improved battery life, but will wait until I have used it a while before pursuing any of these.

Has anyone else using this phone experienced less than stellar battery performance? Today I turned my phone on at 0800 and by 1530 it was in the yellow (very low). Sent one text, made maybe five calls, received three emails. I have my email setting to check download emails at five minute intervals (coming from a BB Storm1 w/5.0). Also a little disappointed to find out that the voice dial function did not support dialing initiated from a bluetooth headset. Any thoughts/suggestions on the battery life?
Thanks in advance...
