    My Eris should be delivered to my house by the time I get off of work. This is my first smartphone, so I'm excited. I was wondering if 2.1 will come preinstalled or if I will have to do an update out of the box. Does anyone know? If I do have to do an update, since I won't have any contacts or anything stored, will I have to worry about all of the problems that people have been having with the update?

    Thanks in advance. I've been browsing top 10 app lists for 2 days now making a list of everything I want to download.

    A lot of the Eris's that have been sent out more recently have had 2.1 on them so there is a great chance you will have 2.1 on your phone. If you have to add all your contacts manually there should be no problem with your contacts like other people have had with 2.1.

    Hope you like your first smartphone! I know I love mine! :)

    dont forget to add your contacts as "google" contacts so that if you ever have to hard reset/wipe or get a new phone you can easly sync all of your contacts back with your gmail account. this was something i loved when i first got a android phone.

    I just got a warranty replacement Eris from Verizon today. It is completely root-able.

    Trying to figure out of I install Senseless, CE, Evil Eris or something similar.

    Welcome! You'll learn a lot just by reading the Stickys...

    1st must have app: Swype.Also, Astro file manager and Barcode Scanner will come in handy even if you dont get Swype. Get those form the market.

    You wont find Swype in the Market. Click here.

    Let us know if you need help installing it.
