    I've read in reviews that you cannot use V-Cast on the Eris. Does anyone know if the OS update will enable this feature?:confused:

    I don't like it. Plus, I like the fact that this phone is Verizon free other than little logo on the front. I'm not anti-Verizone but one thing I like about smartphones is less cell company interference.

    Oh, I forgot. To answer the question, in all the "rumor" threads regarding a possible Android update, I have seen nothing in regard to VCast.

    Vcast seems like a fun thing if you dont have a smart phone. There are a bunch of fun things very similar on the android app store and the web. Vcast is Verizon's way of making "feature phones" more fun without an open app store.

    ^That's exactly what I was trying to put into words (and failed, lol). That's a very good way to put it.

    Thanks for your insight. I thought it might be nice if you were stuck waiting at the airport or something to catch up a favorite show you missed or something. But you're right, there's other fun stuff without paying what I think is an extra $15/mo., which btw is free on sprint.

    Well, you can already watch **some** tv on the Droid. NBC features full tv episodes and they work with the Droid. Also, if you download "TV.com" from the market, it allows you to watch full CBS episodes. I'm sure there are more out there (or are going to be coming out soon).

    I'm just waiting for that damn slingbox client!
