    I have had my Eris for less than a year and every few months, the battery stops keeping a charge. I plug it in and it heats up (very hot)...completely depletes the battery charge and then re-charges the battery. I leave home, unplug the charger and when i get to work 20 minutes later, the battery is again (very hot) and 50% empty.

    This is the 2nd battery it starts approx every 3 months or so. Anyone else have similar probs?

    I'll call Verizon for a replacement battery again but the warrenty is only a year. Should I ask them to replace the phone?

    verizon tech support is sending me a completely new phone to try and resolve the issue. I probably won't come back and post that everything is working ok..but I'll post if the problem happens again.

    Mine hasn't done this on a regular basis but I am on my second battery since I got the phone in December of last year. I just got the battery replaced about a month ago. I do notice that the phone seems to get really hot - not the same hot it was when the battery got replaced but still hot - about once a week or so. I love my Eris but I have had a multitude of issues with it.
