Hey everyone! This is my first post. I have been lurking around here as a non-poster sucking up all the information I could about preserving my Eris's battery life, tips and tricks, and of course the mysterious upgrade to 2.0/2.1. This is my first smartphone and I am in love with it. There are just a couple things that I'm not sure if it's "user error" or if it's my phone. Firstly, the alarm clock! I do use advanced task killer, and thought that maybe the alarm wasn't going off because I was killing the clock app. I tried unchecking the clock and keeping it running; my alarm did not go off. I've been trying to master it for about a week, and it's only gone off twice, and both times (I believe) it was plugged into the charger. I know from the battery lessons that I don't need to be charging it all night if it's not low on battery. Yesterday I rebooted (not sure if it's the right term-- turned it off and on lol) my phone, and when I was texting my keys were making funny noises. I had never had that happen before. I'm sure this is something minor, but where exactly is the control for that? I have looked in Settings and Spare Parts, but haven't found it. Sometimes I think this phone is TOO smart, because things will be seemingly hidden from me My husband originally got a Storm 2 and wound up returning it for an Eris (after he saw all the awesome things the Eris offers that the Storm doesn't!) I have had more time to play with mine and personalize it; I had spent a good couple days browsing the battery tips and tweaking my phone. I had tried to do the same for his, but his awake time is over 50% and his battery is always dying. I'm trying to get him to drain/recharge his battery for 3 days but he's a stubborn guy. Short of that, do you think there's anything I'm missing? He has a task killer, toggles for wifi/gps/etc, switched to ChompSMS rather than the native msg... Any advice? And I just want to thank everyone for all your knowledge! This forum has been invaluable in learning how to use the Eris to its full potential!
