    There's a My Verizon app in the market, and it will tell you how much data you've used. Congrats on the Eris!

    The verizon app that was mentioned will help you keep track of usage. Use wifi whenever possible. It doesn't count toward your allowance. Read through these forums for lots of good tips. Enjoy the eris.

    Welcome to Android and the Android Forums, andymc!

    There's a whole subforum that you might be interested in:

    Eris - Tips and Tricks - Android Forums

    There's only three main threads in there now since these forums were recently reorganized, but they are pretty good ones:

    My advice would be to read up on what root is and root your Eris. I had an Eris until yesterday when I got the DInc. A rooted Eris with an over clocked CPU is a pretty damn good phone.

    +1 A rooted Eris is a damn fine phone.
