Bought my Eris in February. Loved it for a few weeks. Then the battery started dying really fast. I joined these forums, got tips on how to maintain it better, to prolong the battery life, etc. Between horrendous typing lag (It takes me about 3 times as long to type a text message out when compared to using a hard keypad on a Blackberry) the sound going out every day so I can't make/take a phone call since I can't hear anything, the EXTREME DIALER LAG when trying to dial a number that isn't in my Contact list, as well as other miserable experiences. I've been active here for a while, I was on top of all the "tips and tricks" threads and all those other topics that helped everyone manage the phone better, but now the problems I am having with basic features of the phone are just eating away at my soul. I did try my best to love this phone, but this shit is getting a tad ridiculous and I can't take it anymore. I wish I could buy a new phone and get rid of this piece of crap, but I can't. Woe is me.
