I got the Eris on the first day and returned it due to poor battery life. I got my Dare turned back on temporarily. I then ordered an Omnia II, but never opened it. I think I am going to send it back and get the Eris again. I didn't know there were applications to specifically address battery life. Also, I didn't know USB cords for the Eris could be that cheap-I found them for $10 online. I can go ahead and get 3-4 of them and have one at home, one in the office, and one in my work bag just in case so that would alleviate most of my problems with regard to the battery dying so relatively quickly, at least for someone that has never used a smartphone.
