    i really like my eris, but i'm beginning to get really annoyed with my lagging text messages. i've tried the stock, handcent and chomp and they all lag. plus, my unlock screen always freezes, and i have to pull the battery out because i can't press the end button to shut it down.
    i'm still in my 30 day window at verizon and thinking of switching to a blackberry, but with talk of 2.1 coming out within the next week, i feel i should wait to see if that corrects my problems.

    does anyone know what 2.1 is going to bring/update?

    It would be nice to have a clear list of all that the OTA is to bring to our devices.

    Never gonna happen before we actually start seeing the update come around to users, I'll bet.

    First and foremost, it sounds like you may have a bad phone. I would reccomend taking it back to verizon for an exchange. Second, as far as laggyness and other issues with the keyboard and phone dial pad, i havent seen anyone use that stuff in any of the videos of 2.1 on the eris so i dont think anyone really knows if that will be fixed yet. 2.1 will bring the new version of sense, which you can see in any of the videos. It will also bring the avaliability of new apps that were not avaliable for 1.5. Nav is a known one. Voice-to-text should be another. Ummm, other than that not really too sure.

    Well, I'm tired of 2.1 speculation about when it's going to arrive, but not about what it will be.

    It will bring the missing global warming data and an inbox button for Facebook for Android. Just kidding about the inbox button.

    I'm hoping it will usher in a new era of world peace and economic prosperity.

    2.1 will bring the new dawn of a Utopian society where people and animals will be able to communicate. There will be no wars, violence, starvation, greed or envy. Everyone and everything will live in complete harmony. People will live to be 500 years old and everyone will win the lottery on a daily basis.












    ......and the beer apps will actually dispense beer through the headphone jack.;)

    Everything there looks great except for the 500 years old thing.

    I'm going to have to take some time and think about whether or not to accept this download.

    Well, it'll take me a good 400 years just to decide about this OTA.

    I tend to lean toward this update bringing forth the apocolypse myself. But I'm just a gloom and doom kinda guy!

    Well, call me old fashioned, but I'm of the mind that if an iPhone ever falls into the hands of Mick Jagger the Apocolypse is just around the corner.

    It's in the Bible, man.

    Wow. I would call that a blast from the past, but that would be a lie. All I can say about Barry Manilow is that he wrote the songs all the world sung. HA! HA! HO! HO! HEE! HEE! (They're coming to take me away! They're coming to take me away! They're coming to take me away!)

    2.1 will resurrect Ronald Reagan and grant him 8 years in office. I will jump up and down screaming and flapping my hands.

    Now that would be sweet. But it needs to come out tonight before the cspan television blockbuster of a healthcare debate tomorrow so he can stop this silliness
