    Well tonight I was heading out the door to go somewhere and I hit my Eris right out of my hand. Fell right to the ground. I felt my heart go up to my throat. I picked the phone up and wiped it off and said "phew I am glad I had the black rubber skin on it". My 10 year old son rolled his eyes and laughed at me. Someday he will understand. :)

    I find a lanyard helps tremendously, especially during ski season while riding the lifts! Just need to find a new one for my Eris.

    congrats! :)
    make sure you get a nice list of apps and tweaks to do out the box, let it charge while you load and tweak, then life is GOOD! :)

    Well the reason I am waiting is because Verizon wanted $541 and some change for the Droid and an Eris. So after we found out that we were approved for two lines with no deposit, we ran home and surfed the net. We got the Droid for $119.99 and the Eris for free! No shipping and no activation fee. Beat the crap outta $541.00!!! And that is why I am waiting! Worth it to me!

    We got ours from Dell Shopping. Ordered a week ago today. Droid was out of stock or we would have got them sooner. So just blame it on my husband cuz he just had to have the Droid. Cuz he says Eris is a girl phone! I bet I will like mine better than he will. Our first smartphones...we are so proud!!
