Hello all new here and looking at switching from my BlackBerry tho the new Eris when it hits VZW. My question is since this is basically a Hero repackaged can anyone tell me about the ability to use this as a bedside alarm clock. Does it change to a clock interface? Can it be dimmed? and how reliable is the alarm function? Thanks for the info. Also can you turn the phone volume off so alerts and phone calls dont ring while still leaving the alarm volume active?
