My Eris has 2.1 and it is TERRIBLE

    My Eris went to 2.1 last week. Since the change, it crashes constantly. The camera often does not work (I just get a black screen), and 50% of the time I try to make a phone call, it just doesn't connect and I have to restart the phone. Also, when I bring up the number pad to find a contact or dial a number, about 50% of the time it is incredibly frustratingly slow so it takes about 15 seconds for each number to register.

    Any ideas?

    Wife has the exact same issue. When she called Verizon their fix was to send a replacement phone!

    Most of the bugs and problems can be fixed with a factory reset which wipes the phone. The silent call bug is widely known though, and hopefully HTC and Verizon will come out with a patch soon.

    I called Verizon. I did a *228, we'll see if that works. They said if it doesn't, do a factory reset, and if that doesn't work, get a new phone.

    The tech support lady told me this was the first she had heard about the silent call bug. Also, during the call, I had to hit some buttons on the keypad, which wouldn't come up. She'd never heard of that happening either.
