HTC Droid Eris
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...

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.
If anyone know how to fix that, please let me know.
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.
Verizon is $99/mo for the same bundle, but since their "nights" start at 9pm (and weekends don't start till midnight Sat morning!), I'd probably have to pay even more to get the 900 minutes!
Screw that! I'd rather pay full price for the Eris and use it on my Sprint plan. As far as I can tell, the Eris supports the same networks as the HTC Moment, so this should work, right? Is the phone locked, or can you easily port android phones across carriers? Would be nice...
Verizon really aggressive this year
"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 ...
