Ive only had my Eris for a few days now. I have learned most everything I needed so far from this site. I see people posting about the patch or update from Dec 11th. I am womdering if it already installed on my phone since I just got it or if I need to have it done. I have Verizon and recieved my phone dec 28th. My battery life sucks but I have turned off a few settings to optimize the battery life.
