    Will you lose text messages after installing this? And are contacts synced with google by default like on the Droid?

    You dont lose texts, and I think I just went and synced my stuff right away. Not sure if it would have been automatic. But it sure is easy to get right back either way.

    You are wrong. Friendstream and gallery are not in either the 2.1v3 or 2.1OTA. I have access to both and they are identical.

    I have read all 42 pages - so forgive me if this has been answered, I rooted to 2.1 per http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/53963-guide-stock-1-5-latest-root-2-1-a.html. When people talk about leaked .v1, v2 and v3 - do they mean the non-rooted?

    So, will I be able to get the update - OTA or manually. Do I need to go back to 1.5?

    I don't care about root at all, I installed it to get google map voice navigation. So, I'm looking for the simplest path back to stock.


    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Nothing for me so far, even though vzwsupports twitter page is adamant that people on the leaked 2.1 will get the OTA. who knows.

    I think I saw someone from Baltimore got it yesterday or the day before. Seems to be at random. Hopefully it's picking up and more people will get it over the weekend than during the week.

    Not sure if this means anything, but I'm in Lincoln, NE and my wife and I both has Eris's. She is on 1.5 and received her update this morning (5.15.10) at about 8:30 a.m. I am on 2.1 v3 and have not received it yet. Of course, if the updates are purely random it doesn't make a difference one way or another. Just thought I'd pass it along. Once her update is done I will post a detailed comparision, assuming no one has beat me to it.
