Bought an Eris last weekend after debating between it and the Motorola. Knowing that I'm getting Android 2.0 soon was a big factor. I just love the Eris...except.... The battery just drains. I'm not really used to having to charge each night. I did discover that I can turn off the network so it's basically just in phone mode. That has helped tremendously. Its not problem to turn it onwhen I need it. I dont need constant notifications of emails, and FB updates... Thought this might be of some interest to other new users.
