    There's a My Verizon app in the market, and it will tell you how much data you've used. Congrats on the Eris!

    The verizon app that was mentioned will help you keep track of usage. Use wifi whenever possible. It doesn't count toward your allowance. Read through these forums for lots of good tips. Enjoy the eris.

    My advice would be to read up on what root is and root your Eris. I had an Eris until yesterday when I got the DInc. A rooted Eris with an over clocked CPU is a pretty damn good phone.
