This is basic - not ready for the arcane syncing questions etc: I just got the eris a few days ago, my first PDA (!), upgraded from Samsung Alias with the swivel qwerty hard keyboard I loved... I did eschew paying the extra $99 at Verizon for the Motorola... okay, so either I'm just not used to the "virtual" keyboard, but the thing makes me INSANE - "aiming" at keys - and the spelling "help" has got me in trouble a couple of times. Is it a learning curve? Is it patience? Is there a tip n trick? I was all set to send it back and bite the bullet & get the Droid proper. Otherwise I think it's a great device, still trying to figure out all the bells & whistles. But keyboard typing doesn't seem to be getting better. I dread having to write more than a sentence. THANKS!
