    I had an issue today where I took the phone out of my pocket to check the time and it was powered off. I went to turn it on and no skateboarding-robot love. I thought the battery might have died, but one hour and two different chargers later, it still did not turn on. My co-workers Eris was the test subject for the battery and other components. It would not turn on at all and there was no charging light showing, either.

    I called Verizon and I should have my replacement device on Thursday. Until then, I'm rocking (if you'd call it that) a Blackberry Tour. It feels weird. Other than Google Voice I doubt I'll even install any apps....

    I wonder if I'll get one with 1.5 and I can root it. I had already installed 2.1v2 on it. I am excited about rooting, wifi tether, and so on. There's some great ROMs out there. I actually hope it does NOT come with 2.1 already. I'll fill all of you in!

    The funny thing is that two hours later, after having the battery out for a while, it turned on. But...I have the "new" one on the way. I'm going to study up on this whole root thing. :)

    I think that's what happened to me when 2.1b was leaked. It's how I got two Erises.

    Is it just me, though, or have the instances increased sharply the past few days? Seems like everyone and their wives are hitting this issue.

    I mean, I love the 2.1v2 leak and I was upset about the crash mostly because I was going to have to revert to a non-Android device. I didn't do anything on purpose. At the same time, I'm a little more than happy to get a stock device to, um, use to its fullest extent. Yeah, that's the ticket.

    If you're asking me, I haven't received it yet. As far as smacky's situation, well, maybe he'll share!
