So I have good news and bad news. First the good, the HTC Eris is one bomb proof phone, ok sort of. Here is the bad news, the HTC Eris can not win in a fight between it and a 6 foot fall to the concrete with no protection. LoL. I shattered my screen into a lot of pieces and I mean a lot, however the phone still works like a champ. I do get a headache when trying to read text messages or email through my new kaleidoscope that is also a phone and a PDA. LoL.
