    It would seem that the majority of the people on this forum have an issue with their Eris. Either it won't root properly, or it's not fast enough, or some other freakin' issue. If all you want to do is complain about your phone, why didn't you buy an iPhone and have a happy life, instead of buying a phone that you didn't REALLY want, but are content to complain about? Guess what? A DROID PHONE IS NOT AN IPHONE! Boom! Your mother would be ashamed.

    The Eris is a much better phone when it's rooted, just like the iPhone is much better when it's jail broken.

    Don't start a flame war, please.

    The MAJORITY of people do not have problems with the Eris and you generally do not hear from them because the majority of people do not post on phone nerd forums like we do. People who complain on these forums do so for a reason: they are unhappy and usually are looking for assistance. Maybe try a little compassion?

    The majority of people posting problems came to this forum for that reason... to find answers. The only other people posting are either trying to help those people with problems, or are just overall active members contributing to the Android Community.

    oh... lookey here... it looks like the iPhone users you speak of are having a few issues of their own... (not trying to fuel any flames... just thought i'd prove a point that its not just eris/android users having all the issues)

    If Verizon offered an iPhone, I'd consider it, but ATT is a terrible provider. Why would I want to spend the same amount of money for an iPhone when it would work no better than an iPod touch most of the time???

    Reminder to keep it civil and to avoid posting unnecessary comments made to cause problems....

    In my honest opinion, this thread was going to cause problems from the get-go.

    I agree, but I don't have the powers to lock the thread.

    The most I can do is remind people to keep it civil... or move the thread to await moderation if it gets WAY out of hand.

    I would LOVE to hear what is so much better about the iphone?

    and why did YOU come here? Did you start an account at AF just so you could come on here and try to piss people off? I can tell by your constant reference to the iPhone that you are not a very technical savvy phone user, so maybe the iPhone would be a good choice for you. Most people could have a Lamborghini and still find something to complain about on it. As all the other above me have stated, we are mostly here to help people who have issues with the eris, hence the posting of eris issues asking for help. Hopefully a mod will lock this thread before it gets out of hand and you can meander back to your starbucks.

    That can be copy-and-pasted to any device forum that exists.

    Fill in the blank.

    I don't have a lot of posts 'cause I'm happy with my phone.

    My guess to Caddyman's blank: Jump

    Yes, *sigh*... I suppose you're right. But I'm sure there are other reasons! ;)

    Well, any of us that find the thread offensive (insulting in this case, to some I suppose) can click the [​IMG] and fill the text field that appears with their reasoning.

    As for me, I find the original post naive at worst. No biggie, although it does have a hint of the possibility of triggering a flame war amongst those who like to engage in such things.

    You won't believe it; a post/pic from the Shawshank Redemption that one of the MODs didn't care for is what did me in. My post was in poor taste, more than likely. Yup...and I'm such a well-adjusted person. :D
