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

    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I am new to smartphones. The Eris only has CDMA, so it won't be able to connect to 3G in Europe, for example. But will it be able to connect to open wi-fi networks?

    Heading to Europe in April 2010 - leading high school students thru France, Switzerland, Austria & Germany. Heard using a wifi divice outside is illegal. I wonder how Droid will enjoy the tour.

    I've had wifi on for a long time, wifi doesn't really eat much battery life at all. GPS will though. The only bad thing about wifi is if you have yahoo mail accounts, they won't get sync'd, it has something to do with yahoo knowing that it's not a phone IP address or something similar to that.
