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

    I have searched on here a few times to find out how to get the market back on the Eris but nothing seems to work. I don't know about rooting and stuff. But I did see that I have the current software 2.1. I have a feeling my 3 year old got to my phone because a few apps have become MIA. Any suggestions????

    Could you go by a Verizon factory store and have them reflash the OS? Or Menu/Settings/Applications/Unknown Sources checked and then find the vending.apk for 2.1 and drop it on the sdcard and install with Astro?

    Good luck.

    I was trying to avoid the store...it is HORRIBLE in there and the wait time is usually over 20 mins.
    I think that is going to be my only option though... I can't seem to figure out how to download it back...
    Thanks BFF... I am thinking I might as well upgrade while I am there

    I am thinking the Droid 2. :rockon:
    After having the Eris, I am not a big fan of touch screen only. But that could be because I have had issues with this thing since day 1. I am text freak so I think I want the keyboard back.
    What do you have if ya don't mind... or your opinion?!

    I have the original Droid. I too love the physical keyboard. I'm really excited about the next round of phones being announced right now, but I am hesitant to without a keyboard. However, it looks like I will be keyboardless soon!!

    If I was buying today, it would, without a doubt, be a Droid X. I love the large screen and I personally think the phone is gorgeous. If I was going to wait on the new phones, the Droid Bionic currently is in first place for me. I will have to wait and see how the Bionic feels though. As something that I will handle dozens and dozens of times per day, it will have to "feel" right.

    If you are going to stick with a keyboard phone though, the Droid 2 is top of the list. They are truly great phones and will be relevant for a long time.

    Good luck.

    I might have to hold off and just deal with this then. I prefer to get in on the new stuff rather than the current in some ways. (hence the eris)
    thanks for your ideas... i will have to do a bit of research and see what fits best, like what your saying about size and feel.
    LOL that sounded bad.

    Thanks again!:)
