    I have read through a nuber of posts but cannot seem to find an answer to this question:

    Is there a way to disable the haptic feedback (vibration) from the HOME keys - I have successfully stoped this function for the touchpad.

    Other questions:

    1. My phone will access YouTube but does not play all videos. It plays about 30 % of the ones I select - is this a phone problem? Is than an update?

    2. I charge my phone each night, 11p to 7a and plug it in to the car charger for longer trips (use a bluetooth while driving) - am I killing my battery?

    3. What will be the major advantages of an upgrade to Android 2.0 which I hear is rumored for the Eris in 1stQ 2010>

    Love the phone...can't wait to try the GPS 'Where Am I' app on a local golf course (can it identify the bar also?)

    Thank you.

    unfortunately, no.

    If you're getting 30% to play, you're doing better than a lot of us. I've resorted to the browser. It's a known issue.

    There are a lot of people who keep it plugged in all day (into their pc's). I haven't heard of any issues. Apparently, these batteries only have 300 "full charge cycles". Some say that keeping it somewhat full keeps it from going through a full cycle. People will no doubt disagree on this question.

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    Since Bswartz already answered the other two, I will take this one.

    With the update to 2.1 we will/should get:

    -Google Nav with turn by turn directions
    -Access to new apps that are only available to those with 1.6 or higher, like Google Goggles
    -New features in the Sense UI, like Leap which allows you to view all your home screens at once and move between them.
    -Updated features in the Sense UI, like full screen animation for the clock/weather widget.
    -a working youtube app;)
    -and more
