    Not sure what is going on. I just sent myself an email from my work PC and had it within a couple of minutes on my phone.

    Go to your Gmail on your phone. You need to be viewing the Gmail Accounts page, so if you are viewing your inbox, hit menu button, then Accounts. From the Accounts page hit Menu, Account Settings. On the next page ensure that Auto-sync and Background data are checked. If they aren't, that explains your problem. Check them and problem should be solved.

    I am willing to bet your problem is that your "Enable always-on mobile" is unchecked. To enable it... Menu > Settings > Wireless & Networks >Mobile networks

    Ok, I know Im new here, but Ive had my eris since December. I stuck with 1.5 all the way to the OTA update. Back then the phone had issues, slow, missed calls, pure crap for battery life. I learned (through here) how to improve things. After the update I had a ton of problems like so many others and I fixed it the other day. Since your problems happened after the OTA both Droids and I suggested a factory data reset because its obviously not a hardware problem. I fixed 99% of my problems with a reset and if you read other threads on here it has fixed a ton of them. It can be a pain to do it but both my wife and I got through it. Ok, I did it twice but it wasnt that bad considering how much got fixed.

    as for this....

    I turned that off 3 months ago to save battery. And it did help the battery and I get emails, facebook msgs and texts just as fast as always.

    Everyone, do the factory reset after updating to 2.1. The process itself is not hard, but I did have to call Verizon (from a land line while I had my eris handy) and have the rep "authenticate" my phone afterwards, but it was worth it. It runs faster and smoother now and it fixed my speed dial problems. Also, I haven't had any calls that my eris doesn't recognize anymore. Just be sure to back up all of your stuff. My contacts transferred flawlessly after this reset. I did however have to reinstall the apps I downloaded of course so be sure to back them up as well or make a list so you can go back and reinstall them later.

    How do I back up my apps for later if I want to do a factory reset?

    I used ASTRO file manager. It will back up apps to the SD card and after you restart you can re-install them right off the card. Worked like a champ for me.
