HTC Droid Eris
Caller ID Ringtones
1 MUST HAVE FREE APP
there is no task manager on the device to close apps so alot of issues like slowness or freezing can be remedied, even battery life can be extended if u keep the number of running apps to a minimum.
also keep in mind pressing hold down the home key shows most recent used apps, it doesnt show what apps are currently running
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME SO I DONT HAVE TO RETURN MY ERIS

Vibration on key pad
I just received my Eris today and its very interesting. Kinda a pain in the ---- but with patience, you will get the hang of it.
Question: Is it possible to higher the volume to the alarm? It rings so low, I am afraid I might miss it.

Also my location on GPS is off by almost 2 miles? Anyone??
What about Sprint
Right now, I pay $69/mo for 450 minutes with unlimited text & data. Oh and nights and weekends start at 7pm.

"I could go either way" Review
"1. Screen lock easily unlocks without an unlock pattern. It also locks the screen immediately without allowing a setting to time the wait before lock."
Incorrect. There ARE settings for this. It coincides with the screen timeout setting.
"2. Keeps shutting off and requesting a force shutdown due to unexpected Android OS error."
That's probably for one of two reasons:
01) You've got one or more downloaded apps that cause the aforementioned errors.
02) You've got a phone that has a botched OS installation, or you (or someone else) did a factory reset on it (a known issue).
"3. Cannot download ...
Need a phone that can sync email and calendar
I'm wondering if the Droid Eris (or any verizon phone) has the ability to sync Hotmail OTA? I also have a Gmail account and I would consider making it my primary account if sync is possible. Thanks in advance.
has the basic OS
and for her it was "cute"
the price of the phone was ideal for her....189 for a one year contract...this is a better deal...why be stuck with an iphone for 2 years? hell why be stuck with any phone for 2 years...for 200 bucks with and upgrade of 2.0 os...this is the iphone killer
