    Did anyone else make this more?

    I'm thinking about picking the Eris up soon. . . One thing i noticed when researching is that the Eris has OS 1.5 and is suppose to get 2.0 soon.

    Is this true? Should I wait until the 2.0 comes out?


    Noob looking for some insight.

    Thanks.

    BTW: Is there a program that I can tether the Eris to my computer to get online?

    I use TetherBerry on my storm. . one time $50 charge and i can tether it at no additional cost.

    Thanks M'am!

    Doesn't look like any reason to keep the BB now.

    :) - ... welcome!

    I moved from a Treo and this was one of the things I hoped for. Overall, I love the Eris, btw.

    I also just switched over from a storm town Eris and have to say that I am quite impressed. There might be the slightest lag but it is really not all that noticeable. The interesting thing is that I honestly was happy with my storm as of yesterday, but had the opportunity to get one for free, so I bit the bullet with partial intentions to sell it.

    Honestly this device does everything well, the keyboard is amazingly accurate and quite pleasant to use.

    Does anyone know if the recent. 2.1 update will be for the Eris too?

    I've only had the Eris for 2 days now and I am loving the phone!

    Typing is so, SO much better than the Storm.

    One thing I can't seem to figure out is how to delete applications I don't want on the phone.

    Any one know how to do this?

    I use "Advanced Task Killer Free". It works great.

    Sorry, I should learn to read better... I think if you go to the android market and find the app you want to uninstal, it has an uninstal button.

    I'm also thinking of moving from the storm1 to the eris. from what i have read, i'm a little concerned about not being able to sync my outlook. I don't want to depend on gmail/gcal to keep my info. Anyone else with this problem?

    I have been a gmail user for a long while. . . thus i can help you with the outlook issue. Sorry.

    But over all, the Eris, IMO, is a far better phone than the storm.

    In the Markert, under My Downloads, find the app you want to dump and choose uninstall.

    However, if it is an app that came installed on the phone, it is yours for life :dry:... you cannot delete those.

    Learn to love the former... or ignore them - and enjoy playing with the Market apps... I must have tried a gazillion since I got this Eris and have actually kept maybe a dozen - but it's lots of fun trying them out!
