    I just bought the Droid Eris two days ago and so far I LOVE it!! My only cons are the battery life, which I just read about shutting off the mobile network when not in use so I'm trying that, also Id like to know how to save pictures to my card when people send them via text. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums! I'm not sure about the Eris but for my moto droid I just long press on the pic and the hit save. If you want it to go to a certain folder on your card download a file manager like estrong or another from the market. Create a folder for your pics and then move it over.

    I have a friend that cannot get his computer to connect to his phone. He is running vista and it cannot find the drivers or the device. Any ideas?

    Is it the moto droid or the eris? Does he have the USB Debugging turned off? That would be the first thing I would check out. If not then have him try getting ahold of the phone mfg and ask them what's up. Or you could search these forums. There should be an answer for you here somewhere. Search it up.

    lol yeah guess it wasnt clear i thought this was in the eris section. But im not sure about the debugging. I think we are just going to have to meet up and I will fix it.

    There is a forum section if you scroll down that is for Eris users, you may get an answer there
