    This is my response I received from HTC when I inquired if the Eris was going to get Froyo

    ... well at least it wasn't a flat out "No".

    I believe this is a basic form email. I remember seeing almost the exact wording regarding an Eris update for 2.1 not too long ago from HTC. I am in the " not holding my breath " group on 2.2 for us....

    They didn't even have to do that ! That's a generic e-mail that they can use ANYTIME someone e-mails them about an OS update, for any phone, any carrier, and for any OS.

    guess the 2.1 update "passed their quality standards"? LOL, the bar must be low...my wife's Eris is all screwed up.

    And further, when are you guys gonna learn that CSR's have no clue about an update being released, even if it's the week before. They are not told one way or the other. If you want confirmation one way or the other, then hope for an official release. Even then, don't expect their time-line to be remotely correct. --Lessons learned while waiting for 2.1

    Makes you wonder how many names are preloaded for the tech to put in the form...

    Hi, my name is Joe
    Hi, my name is Tina

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high,
    There's a ROM that I heard of
    Once in a lullaby.

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    People with 2.1 V.3 are blue,
    And the dreams that you dare to dream
    Really do come true.

    Someday I'll wish upon a star
    And wake up where the clouds are far
    Behind me.
    Where troubles melt like lemon drops
    Away above the Eris tops
    That's where you'll find me.

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Rooter's fly.
    Rooter's fly over the rainbow.
    Why then, oh why can't I?

    If happy little Rooter's fly
    Beyond the rainbow
    Why, oh why can't I?

    Exactly. Same exact response we would receive if we asked about any software release or OS update.

    Tsk Tsk Tsk, already did...Tsk..TWICE...still having problems, might have a fix for it tomorrow though. I have to make sure she wants it fixed, when she went to bed she was saying she was going to try and make them let her upgrade early to the Incredible...
    If I fix it she'll have no reason to upgrade.

    And it has begun.

    Haven't we learned anything from the 2.1 fiasco on this forum? Calling HTC or VZW and asking them about 2.2 is not going to get you anywhere. I just wish we could get a sticky that asked every member to refrain from posting what an HTC employee or VZW employee told them. This board is going to once again be flooded with a dozen posts a week regarding what a lowly employee of some company said with people analyzing it to no end.

    Again, we already know that HTC and VZW employees do not have answers for you. You are wasting your time if you're calling them to ask about 2.2. The same thing goes for the people who say they called for reason X so they figured they would ask. Please, save us the space on the front page of this forum.

    I love how some people believe the aesthetic needs of the users who LIVE on the forums should be prioritized over easy retrieval of the information that interests most people. As soon as the promise of the next upgrade fades from view, I have no more reason to come here. summary: don't suppress froyo threads. Don't force them all into one long ass thread that no one wants to read.

    Lol good point! It wasn't a flat out "No".... But That doesn't sound good. Im usually always an optimistic person, but im kinda doubting us Eris owners getting froyo.

    Although its highly unlikely the Eris gets 2.2. I always keep in mind "ANYTHINGS MOTHER F#CKING POSSIBLE ;-)".
