Well, I think I'm taking back my Eris today and getting an iphone instead. There are many things I love about this phone and the Verizon service but there are a few things I'm having trouble getting over. First is the service. Great almost everywhere except in my apartment. I have to go outside to make a phone call while my friend with an iphone has fine reception everywhere in our place. Second, the lagging. Sometimes it takes 5 seconds or more to just open the phone function. It's also too slow to keep up with my typing on the virtual keyboard most of the time and I find it highly annoying. Third, battery life. I can get through a day but last night it was midnight and I was down to 5% or so. I made one 30 minute phone call and surfed the net a little. That is it. I'm really afraid that during a heavy use day which I will have on weekends when i go out and such, that it just wont cut it. What sucks is that my Verizon is on a family plan which means I was only paying the $30 data plan and now I'll be paying for everything which will mean an $80 bill instead. But, to be able to make phone calls from home and have a phone that can keep up with what I'm doing I think it will be worth it. The Eris is a solid design, if they could get the lag issues and battery issues fixed it would be a real iphone killer I think but they just aren't there with it yet unfortunately, at least not for my needs.
