We'll see how it goes. I've upgraded from the LG DARE VX9700 and so I'm looking forward to a fun phone. I refused to be a part of the Apple movement and so was quite content with the newer Android type phones. So I went for the htc ERIS. I paid $179 and got the $100 mail in rebate which I'm sure will be used for the bill at some point. I was alss charged the $20 upgrade fee since I had a couple of months to go on the contract. Anyway, pleased to find this site. My name is Kareem and I'm in Elk Grove, California.
