    Hello Everyone! First post...probably going to get ERIS after holidays. Just wondering if anyone went from Curve to Eris with any regrets. How does the call quality compare? Thanks for any info.

    I went from Storm - to Strom 2 to Eris and love it!!!!!!
    Trust me, I was deep into Blackberry. This is much better in my opinion.

    I went from a Curve to the Eris. I too was in love with Blackberry's, but decided to take the plunge and give Android a shot. I'm very glad I did. I can't see myself ever going back to a Blackberry now.

    I went from curve to eris and really like it. I am still getting use to the touch screen though. Once I master the phone life will be great. I haven't considered going back so thats a good sign!

    Ditto on the curve to the eris. Other than the obvious crackberry addiction issues, its been a good move for me. The form factor is great and since I had the original curve and not the one with wifi; the functionality is there too. Yes its different and its hard to break old habits, but its been a good move.

    I had the pearl, curve, storm and tour. None of them come close to the eris. I love it and don't think I'll be going back to BB ever again. And i was a HUGE blackberry fan/enthusiast.

    I always have to carry two phones on me at all times.

    My Personal one - Eris (Upgrade From Env2)
    My Work Phone - BB Curve

    Best of Both worlds :)

    I went from a Curve to a Droid (for 29 days) to the Eris. I never thought I would find a phone I liked better than the Curve. I am happy to say that I was wrong!

    Same here I had a Curve for over a year and half. I had a Storm as well. Didnt care for the Storm and the clicking thing drove me nuts. The Curve is still the best BB in my mind and its rock solid but its so boring. I just couldnt deal with having no good apps for it. The only thing I miss is the BB messenger other than that I am very happy with my Eris. I wont be going back to the BB anytime soon either.

    Did any of you have luck switching your contacts over from your BB Curve to your Eris? I took it into Verizon and they synced all of my old contacts into new Google accounts on my Eris which in turn purged all of my existing Gmail contacts on my CPU. I now have all of my phone contacts set up as Google contacts. Any suggestions on how to solely get my old contacts transferred over to "phone" contacts on the Eris?

    Best method I found was to log into google from my home computer and fix it there. With the sync function on your phone get updated at the same time. Time consuming yes, but it was better than doing on the phone itself.
