So I went in to the VZW store to but another Eris for my sister. While chit chatting with the manager (who also has an eris), it came up that I had added the 2.1 to my phone. He asked me if he could play around with my phone, to which I obliged. He could NOT put the phone down. He wanted the navigation SO BAD that he actually asked me if he could copy the (2.1) .zip file from my SD card and asked for install directions. HE LOVED IT. BUT This quickly brought me to a sad conclusion. -- He obviously hasn't received any internal notifications as to when the OTA 2.1 update is coming. And as manager, you would think he would be aware that its coming. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions here, or he just wanted it bad enough that he couldn't wait, but maybe its not coming out as soon as we all seem to think. I hope I'm wrong, but i just wanted to tell my story. Any extra input or opinions are certainly welcome!!
