    Not surprising due to the pending Apple lawsuit, I'm sure they are hard at work modifying the new phone to not infringe on supposed patents, discontinuing the Eris may just be a legal maneuver as well.

    @ backnblack...didn't mean uproar literally...just figured ppl would not be too found of the idea that the eris may be discontinued after only being on the market since november...personally it being discontinued for the incredible doesn't really bother because I'm running the leaked 2.1 and the two year contract that I signed is enough to keep me level headed... :)

    I actually thought the Incredible's specs were more in line with the N1 rather then the eris.. Either way I bought my eris off contract so i can upgrade anytime i want. The Eris is an awesome phone and I really like Sense but the eris is a bit too slow. Especially coming from the Moto Droid that I had for a month... so I'll definitely be upgrading.

    the only thing that sucks, is with all 3 of my recent phones that I've owned for 4 months or less, I would go out and buy screen protectors ($15) and Seidio Cases ($30).. All of which i wound up giving away for free when i sold the phones..

    So wait
    What am I missing that makes the Eris become discontinued? My latest phone before my amazing Eris was the Samsung Glyde multimedia phone it was so horrible that I was almost happy that it was discontinued

    They're not gonna buy us all new phones. They'll keep making Eris's for the next 2 years to keep us on our 2 yr plans. They just won't have any eris for sale.

    I get we shouldn't be expecting any big updates and stuff anymore

    I think the updates will still be sent to the phone because it's still on the android network.

    I can't imagine why they was cancel the Eris. I was out last night fondling all the droid phones and Out if all of them the Eris was still my favorite. Plus there seems to be a huge following for them as well.

    What happens if you have insurance and 'damage' your Eris? Do you get your choice of phones if the Eris is discontinued?

    like i said in my previous post. When my latest phone before my Eris was discontinued they still produced the phone for the insurance purposes.

    I think they will give you a reconditioned eris. If the phone is discontinued they aren't going to make new ones. So reconditioned is the best they will do.
