I just got my Eris from the Best Buy store for 49.99. Can't wait to play with it. Any ideas for me?
^Agreed, and for the apps it really just depends on what you will be using it for.
Congrats - that's an excellent price (w/ 2yr contract, I presume).
There will be an undeniable urge to start customizing your phone - just be aware of the Mad Tweaker Battery Life Syndrome
There's a lot of built-in functionality and phone behaviors provided by the default apps (including the HTC apps and Sense UI), and frankly it takes some time to familiarize yourself with them - spend some time with them before you go wild with downloaded apps.
First place to start is a good long look at the User's Manual.
Second place is building homepage(s) themes with Sense. (p42 of manual)
Once you go crazy with downloading games... I recommend creating a folder on one of your seven home screens for them. This will keep them seperate from the other apps while not taking up an entire screen.
