Hey im new to this forum! Well I just received my Droid Eris in the mail yesterday! When I first got it out the box it was running 1.5 and super fast. So I downloaded Handcent and put some songs and pictures onto the SD card. Well a few hours later Handcent started to get kinda of laggy.. It would take a few clicks of a button to get it to imput and then it would keep inputting the letter I entered. The homescreen is kind of laggy when trying to open applications. When I scroll through contacts it lags up and then will freeze and then jump down the screen. Any help is greatly appreciated!! :droideris:
:welcome: to the Droid Forums. I moved your post over here because I feel you'll get better help. Also be aware that an update is going out for Eris to change it to 2.1. I strongly suggest that you make sure you establish a gmail account and sync your contacts to it.

I have not had to use ATK since I installed 2.1, and have in fact uninstalled it.
