Default let the fun start

So I just went to my local Best Buy and picked up my Eris. I love this phone so far. Did alot of research and played with both Droid's before purchasing and this one fits me the best. In fact this post is being made from the phone. Keep all the great tips and tricks coming. I will help with any questions as I figure things out.

You like it. I have had it a week and I still can't stop messing with it. Finding new things every day. Just watched my first youtube video in high quality mode. WOW!
Very clear..

Just wanted to say thanks to all the active posters around here.. You really made the decision way easier than CNET or anywhere else i could look.

I finally made the decision to get the Eris. Leaving over lunch to go pick it up in just a few minute.

Have fun with it. It is quite addictive. Still learning the ins and outs of it but haveing a blast. I will be putting up some wallpapers to my Flickr account this weekend and will post a link once they are up. Still figuring out Advanced Task Manager to set up the one touch kill of common apps but the battery seems to be holding up OK so far.

Welcome Copa! Hope you enjoy it.

GPLarge- about Advanced Task Manager: Do you have the free version? If you open it up, go to the application tab on top and click "End All" on the bottom right.

That application will cause your Eris to mismanage the OS. It is completely unnecessary and will cause battery drain. Remove it, configure the Eris properly and let the battery train correctly. I am getting 2 full days with moderate use between charges now.

How do you properly train it? I have the advanced task manager or killer or whatever and I am getting a good days usage out of it.

I use the Advanced task Manager not killer. Killer is the one that casuse battery drain. First day I got about 10-11 hours before hitting the 15% warning with moderate use today I am at about 60% since turning the phone on at 8 AM with light use. Up time is 8:24 awake time 1:25 (17%) noissues here. I just wish there was an easy way to change icons and fonts on the Sense UI. I will have some simple texture wallpapers up later tonight and I'll link em up once I have them on Flickr.

I put this in the Themes section as well, but I uploaded some quick wallpapers for the Eris I made today. Feel free to use any I post up.

I just took back my Blackberry Storm 2 and got the Eris. I really like it. The clicking on the Storm 2 Started to drive me crazy. I love the size and how easy the user interface is.

Received the phone on Monday instead of Saturday. Phone is smoother and more responsive than the Hero but on the other hand battery life sucks moreso than the Hero's.
