    The reason I asked is because
    I was a member of the site for most of the year thus far
    and I was in the eris forum since i was a eris user.

    Even though, I didn't like the atmosphere over there
    I did look forward to seeing the praises, problems, complaints and rumors
    about the eris that gave me something to look forward to or investigate about my phone.

    But it seems like there a lot more threads over in that forum as well as replies to those questions and comments vs here.

    I love the atmosphere here.
    I've had a few members PM
    me and help me out and what not
    but it brings me to ask my questions...

    Seeing how the eris and hero
    are virtually the same phone with
    minor differences
    did the erises sell more than the heroes?
    Taking in the fact, the hero is on sprint's network
    and verizon having the eris means they are almost twice sprint size
    but i am curious to say the least
    if this true and what anyone might think

    It's not even in android forums
    when i did the research on the Sprint hero
    on various sites, i always saw more responding to pages and reports on the eris
    than the hero.

    Just curious

    I love my hero more than I did my eris
    except for my portrait keyboard seems to not register
    me pressing a button when im typing....it's like i didn't even press it
    even though i know i did...three times before it registers

    however landscape is fine

    Pure speculation but I say yes. Big red has more subscribers and thus the number is higher purely based on that.

    Sales numbers for either device are not handily placed on the internet for us lowbies to view.

    My guess is the Eris had the higher sales. Verizon did a lot more promotion (ads) and heavily discounted the pricing. Sprint had the Hero at $180 while Verizon had the Eris at $100; then Verizon offered it FREE when Sprint had the Hero priced at $149! And don't forget the "buy one Eris get one free" promos Verizon ran.

    Well the Hero and my mac are
    playing nicely together now :)

    And of course you have heard of the eris.
    The Ugly, slightly ******ed triplet
    of the GSM Hero and Sprint Hero.

    You know?
    the one HTC
    seems to never support and really acknowledge is their child

    Which is true because even though the
    eris is on Verizon
    I always seem to hear the most about Sprint hero and HTC hero

    I wouldnt be surprised if the hero sold more. Only reason is verizon has the droid so alot of people I am sure bought that instead. But this is the best phone on sprint, so everyone who has to have the best (thats tied to sprint, probably because of the cheap cheap plans) bought the hero.

    Help me understand this - the iPhone is basically a beefed up iPod Touch, same form factor and user interface. Not saying anything is wrong with it, just having a hard time understanding why you hate the iPhone, but had to run and buy a new touch right away?

    I shouldnt say i hate the iphone.
    I just hate how big the iphone
    feels
    My i touch is thinner
    than the iphone

    Besides at & t is for now the only company
    ties to iphone in america
    so it loses cool points for that as well :)

    I'm giving you a hard time. Rather then writing full sentences you only do a few words on each line. :)

    1. Eris Vs Hero:

    I'm stuck on 1.5 because im having a few issues with rooting my hero however the
    1.5 experience is not the same on my hero as it was with my eris. I was constantly
    having lag all around...random reboots, slow dialer, 3g problems, Freezing etc.

    but on my hero it's been a pleasant experience

    2. My iphone complaints:
    Ignore me lol im a walking contradiction :)

    3)Evo:
    Uh hell yes i want the evo lolzz

    and sorry for my "Poems"

    The number I would like to see is which one drew more subscribers to the carrier. SInce the vast majority of sales is going to be upgrades I would to see how many said, that's my phone and thats my carrier. We will never see those numbers but they would be teling of a number of things.
