Like many of you I took the plunge and upgraded early to 2.1. I hated it, it was very buggy and slow, especially the dialer and keypad compared to 1.5. Also the gmail bug was really annoying, Opera mobile refused to work after numerous attempts to uninstall and reinstall from scratch. Luckily for me my trackball was busted and since my phone is only 2.5 weeks old they replaced it for free and the guy at the Verizon store gave me a discount on a new case and universal car mount. Shout out to Tramont McNeil for your excellent service. Now that im running 1.5 again, the only thing I REALLY miss is the navigation, but I can definitely wait until the final rom is released. Until then, im either gonna keep my new baby droid stock or try rooting/ flashing a custom rom. I love the Eris, i almost traded it in for the moto droid, but that thing is huge. Anyways I would advise anyone who is thinking about about upgrading to stock 2.1 to not do it, I have heard others who think its better but Id prefer my phone to be more stable.
