    just don't feel bad if it gets pushed to a later date guys. HTC's not trying to screw ya it's just not ready yet if that happens.

    My sales man at the Verizon store says it's looking like the 16th of Jan.

    My father and I were able to get our Droid Erises for $29.99 each through a promotion at Best Buy... not a bad deal.

    Won't complain about that, if it's correct.

    When I went to my Verizon store, I wasn't going to buy it until I got reassurance of the update. The rep told me that they were working on the update now, and that it would get it eventually. I then asked 2.0 or 2.1 and he said that it would get the best one for the phone. I love salesmen – Not. :)

    Well, to be perfectly honest.. I feel like I would rather wait and get an updatr theyre proud of than get a rushed one that leaves us needing "fixes".

    Also, I might add, the one feature I want most will likely never be added, which makes me sad. Now that I have this phone people always want to play with it, and I want to be able tp passlock my text messages because you know everyone looks at them :/ - unfortunately I don't see enough pushing for such a feature.

    If it will make you buy it, I'm sure he'll say yes.

    I posted before I stumbled onto this.

    It is now at $49.99 for extension, still a good deal to me. Also, the number for their customer service for phones is 800-300-7066.

    My problem was I have Verizon now and the plans they want you to choose fromaren't what I have. So I had to call direct. The op said they will handle the phone purchase and the specifics so my plan does not change.

    My question was legitimacy. It seems it is a good deal and will be ordering mine tomorrow. An other information about it feel free to post. I am watching and waiting eagerly!!


    I called today with the link that Rob posted in the initial post.

    I am a current Verizon customer with an ADDED line. The phone when I click update my phone goes to $49.99, NO BIGGIE. I called the customer service at the number I provided above and after a 10 minute wait and some confusion as to what site I was on they advised that for $49.99 I could ONLY upgrade the PRIMARY line on the account. To upgrade my ADDED line the Eris would be, this was odd to me, $149.99.
    So, I guess going to the store is my only option as it is $100 there.

    The girl was helpful but didn't understand that the phone is only a $100 in the store. She may not be up on her tech info.

    Thanks for the offer but I hopefully saved some time for some of you, and thanks for the heads up on the offer Rob. They are legite but you need to be a NEW customer to reap some rewards!

    Back on topic.....

    This is my first smartphone aside from my BB, which I had for work and therefore got all the updates through the server while hooked up to USB.

    Can an upgrade from 1.5 to 2.x happen OTA?
  24. Ataranine

    Ataranine Android Enthusiast

    I'd like to think it'd be passed out OTA. But me? I'll most likely do it manually if I don't get the notification a couple days after it's announced.. just like I did with the last update.
    I think it's crap that it's only pushed to a few people per day..

    Will Swype work with the 2.0 update? It doesn't seem to work on the 1.5 OS.
