    Hi, is it normal to be very unresponsive to changing between landscape and portrait? Or do I have a defective phone?

    Also, what type of USB plug is that? I thought I read that it was a mini-b, but I ordered some from monoprice and they do not work.

    Thanks.

    i noticed this on my eris as well. the screen lags when switching to landscape from portrait. like when trying to pull up the larger qwerty screen while typing out a msg. i'm only comparing it to a dare, which was much quicker than this, but also not running nearly as many functions....

    Mine doesn't lag that bad, just like for a second, then it switches over..

    Here is what I was told yesterday by a VZW tech:

    It is 'normal' for the Eris to have a slight lag when rotating screens. By 'normal' he means that they are seeing it in most customers - not that it is how the phone is supposed to work. That was also his response to my battery life question. 'Normal,' but not intentional.

    Mine lags when rotating. Maybe a second or 2. I actually dont mind it as it would be more annoying if it rotated when not desired.

    What type of USB cable is it? I need to get her some extras and I already ordered the wrong thing.

    Thanks

    Any regular mini USB cable will work (such as a digital camera):

    That's what my car charger is, straight from Verizon.

    I have the lag too, the salesperson at Verizon when I first got the phone was aware of it, and she recommended shaking the phone a bit to get it to flip 'faster'.
    I tried shaking it to make it go faster, but in the end I think shaking it only works to get it to flip if it's 'stuck'.

    Nope, seems to be a proprietary connector.

    It's not proprietary. It's a mini usb. I have several sitting around the house and they all plug right into the phone and charge it. :)
     
  12. mini works just fine, but the one that comes with the charger is proprietary. don't know why they felt the need to make it different, fake people out and spend $20 on their specific model?

    Well crap. Thanks for pointing that out. I just (incorrectly) assumed that the mini-usb would not work.

    Yeah I freaked out when I got home the first time and opened all my stuff up, thought they had gave me the wrong charger until I tried to plug it in.....

    wait wait wait... you started a thread in the Eris section so I assumed you had an Eris.. apparently you have the Motorola? If you do then it's a Micro-usb not Mini.

    Same here but my Droid did the same thing. It was a fraction quicker but there was still a lag.
