great thanks! one more thing if anyone could point me to the best screen protectors for the eris? i bought the verizon ones and i am not happy with how they have excessive fingerprinting and seems like one of the corners is always peeling.... also -- anyone know of a place where i can find those "glossy silicone covers"? they are ONE peice and don't attract lint. the one's verizon has on their website are just too ... girly? ... i just want plain colors or something. someone mentioned they found one at best buy - are there any websites or locations i should look? thanks again guys, this forum has been invaluable to me.
