1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Im thinking of buying a refurbished on Ebay if this wasnt on 2.2 yet would there be an update on the phone when i turn it on. It looks like the seller is a outlet store could be an old phone but just wondering if it should already have 2.2? Experts please

    No, 2.2 was never "released" to the Eris. The phone barely handled 2.1.

    Get it, root it, and put you some gingerbread on it. My wife's is running GingerShedBread and it works great. The Devs that ported GB and Froyo to the eris are amazing!

    This is the one im buying i dont have it yet wouldnt it have an update in system tools when i turn it on. I got this for 58.00 on Ebay cause small featherline at the top to the right. I think a screen protector should do the job. Im gonna use this as prepaid thru VZW. Should this be easy to root im sure its only 2.1 right now? I buying it from an outlet store. Do you know what model # this one is it has a 5.0 MP? Im new to Android

    This is not true. My wife is still using the 2.1 push AND the update to 2.1 that was pushed. She has no complaints with her phone.

    I am running 2.3 on my rooted Eris. [shrug]
