    My daughter saw my Eris last night and stole it. Well sort of.. It was her birthday and, well you know. So I have 2 days to get another one, perhaps 3 before I only have one phone. Verizon has a "pre owned" deal for $169, factory refurb, full 1 year warranty, unlocked. Does anyone know if I can get a better deal anywhere, I really don't need the warranty but want a clean one. What happened to all those yokels that "couldn't stand the Eris"? Send it my way, I'll pay the shipping.:D

    *laughing* .. I lost my 8330 to my kid for about two months earlier this year, until she acquired her Tour. .. I know how you feel.

    As far as getting a new Eris, I see them for sale in the usual places online. Google around, you'll get one.. I would not get a refurb, though.. I'd go to the store and wait for a new one if I had to.

    $400+ for a new one without contract. I have no upgrades left, unfortunately. It would have been on the way if I had. ;)

    Wow, that is love for a child right there. I'm not sure I love my kids that much. LOL kidding obviously.

    Have you looked in the Classifieds - Android Forums

    Bought mine on ebay for $200. Works great but it depends on the seller I guess. You just have to be careful.

    :):) Yes, it is.
    Checking now the classifieds, a little high. Checked Craigslist today and I'm waiting for an email from someone that wanted to trade for a BB. I have a mint Pearl I'd give up in a heartbeat for my Eris. The $169 Verizon refurb isn't looking too bad right about now.

    Looked there too, they all say "slightly used" whatever the heck that means. All over $200 today.

    I'd just go for the VZW deal then. It sounds like the best deal you will find. I'd just make sure that you aren't going to be forced into renewing your contract and losing your upgrade to get it.

    Totally. The rep told me a few times that it will not do anything to my contract or any upcoming upgrade. I think it might be for existing users, but I'm not sure. Nonetheless, I will take your advice and reiterate a few times.

    :) No, not really. OT, I just d/l that app and I really like it. Had it a while ago but the new version is awesome. The website really helps with tips etc too.

    I'll be where I'm at!
    All, sorry for posting this here, but the database error is preventing any PM's!!


    BJ, my wife is trying out my Eris for a week (she loves her enV3 though)...if she does not want it, i'd be willing to let it go for $150. I'll PM you when I can get into it.

    I purchased a refurbished from Verizon for $160ish. Works great. No new contract or anything like that. They had free overnight delivery...got it the next day. The only thing different is it comes in a different box...it says refurbished or used or something like that.

    I liked the idea of getting it from verizon instead of craigslist or ebay.
