    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!!

    Asking a Verizon Wireless employee about an update is like asking a McDonalds cashier when the McRib is coming back.

    You should have traded him the file for inside information on upcoming releases. You could have been a God in this forum :D

    Honestly I tried everything I could. He was either being coy, or really didn't know. Bottom line is, he was fascinated with 2.1 and HAD to have it.

    100 bucks says you went into the store to mention you had 2.1 and to talk about it and the purchase of another Eris for your sister was so you could make a thread about it

    Wrong. My phone wasn't working once they activated the other Eris on my account so I HAD to go in. Upon doing a hard reset on my phone, he noticed I had 2.1 on it.

    If you just wanna flame this thread, go somewhere else.

    That's not what he/she/it was going for. A lot of people seem to think that people who work in sales are privy to some sort of insider info and that just isn't the case. The sad reality is that they are usually the last to know, coming a few days behind the "readers of rumor blogs". If a store representative does claim to have some information that has not been made public, officially or not, it usually needs to be taken with one of two grains of salt and a metric-boat-load of skepticism.

    You have this wrong.

    A McDonalds cashier knows more about when 2.1 is coming than a Verizon employee.

    I think some ppl are missing the point. He just wanted 2.1 for himself. So to me that meant he obviously doesnt know when its coming out.

    Will that be for here or OTA? Would you care for a hot force close with that?

    Does that count as a force close or a hard reset?

    Not sure, but I know if it continues it leads to a system purge.

    Yeah I didn't mean to make it seem like I was "showing off" my phone, I just thought it was odd that the the store manager wanted to put the leak on his own phone. Especially since all the experts on this forum seem to think the official release is coming by the end of the month. Dont get me wrong, I hope it IS coming, but with all of the bugs this leak seems to have, and with skype yet to be added, its hard to imagine them getting it all ironed out in 2 weeks. I just dont see it happening.

    3 Weeks from now... I hope there is egg all over my face.

    and maybe a McRib :)
