ok, so i did the whole flash to 2.1 thing and then the updated one that came around not too long ago. just like the first time, it worked great for a few days and then just starts doing funky things. i have actually not put on a whole bunch of apps in the hopes that it would help. - the touch keyboard messes up constantly with huge lags and no matter how often i turn off haptic feedback, it comes back on. i know it's not perfect, but this is freaking ridiculous. - when dialing, there are all kinds of issues. if i try to tap on the call history, it quite often will do a reload right when i tap so i end up calling the wrong person. but it doesn't do it all the time. and then trying to get the phone to hang up is a PITA. when i dial and hit send, the screen will go black, then show the lock screen, then show the in-call graphic, pretty much every single time i make a call. it just gets worse over time. - the battery seems to have lost any sense of charge. sometimes it will last for days, sometimes it goes to red after a few minutes of use. i don't talk a lot on it and the amount of battery life left doesn't seem to correspond to the way i'm using it logically. (one day i can use the internet all day and gmaps navigation, fine battery. the next day i can send a few texts and bam! no battery. i always charge it at night.) - the browser is really screwed up. it populates all these weird websites i have never gone to even tho i delete the history and no one else uses my phone. half the time when i click on links they don't open and i have to close the browser and start over. the other half of the time, the browser just crashes repeatedly. i am just getting so frustrated using my phone that it's not really "fun" anymore. i have done battery pulls and all that, and it will be fine for a day and then it's back to its old shenanigans. due to some nifty corporate cell plan stuff, i can do an upgrade now (not free, but good discount). i could do any other android phone on verizon. (droid, incredible, blur). i went and tried them in the store, but since my issues show up after days not a few minutes, i'm just trying to figure out what the deal is. i can't really return the eris under the mfr warranty since i flashed it and it's still working - and who wants to go back to 1.5? is there anything i can do to my eris to get it working right? or is this "normal"? i'm just concerned about getting the DI or the moto droid and having all the same issues again.
