    Use that code on the dialer to have a rolling update/upgrade available to your device no matter where you are in the release schedule geographically.

    Do NOT press "call" after entering *#*#CHECKIN#*#*, just watch the notification area for a prompt that you are checked in.

    Then go to the usual area to check for software updates and, as long as the rolling update/upgrade has started, it will come to your device.

    I just tried it and it works, it checked me in. No update, of course, but the notification area did indicate I was "checked in."

    Sorry if this has been posted before. I've not seen it.

    Pretty slick. As soon as I tried this, I received updates for three apps I have on my Eris.

    Nope, it works. Just substitute the letters with the corresponding numbers on the keypad.

    Don't ask, can't tell
    Between my ring and middle finger tips.
    And make sure the wifi or mobile network is on, or it will tell you the 'socket is not connected'. After the second try, it worked for me after turning my 3G on. (keep it off when here at work for batt. save)

    My phone took about six seconds after I finished dialing. Remember not to hit the "Call" button.

    I think the Eris forum is about to explode. That video hit and in the past ten minutes alone three new vids popped up with it. May heaven and the Mods have mercy on our souls...
