    So Verizon is sending my wife a new Eris due to all of the silent call, not ringing issue, and crazy echo issue during calls. She is on Leak2. When I send the phone back to them, should I put Leak V3 on the phone so that the numbers match up better, or do you guys think it will matter? Should I somehow just erase that HBOOT thing off of the phone and just send it to them all bricked? I'm trying to hide evidence of leak installation as best as possible so that they don't decide to charge me or something for the replacemant.
    Thanks for your opinions and input in advance.....

    Good news is my wife is finally getting a new phone after I jacked it up with the leak.....:eek:

    I did the same thing, I was on v3 leak, I've been on my replacement for a few weeks

    now, no problems.. and this was before the OTA was official released.. So you should

    be fine. I did Manually install 2.1 OTA onto the new replacement, but after about a

    week of using the new software, I decided it just wasn't what was expected and I

    downgraded back to 1.5. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply....good to know....ya 2.1 isn't too different from 1.5, although I know my wife will use the voice NAV. Any other experiences with this?

    Well, apparently it is a very well known issue to Verizon, I was told the simple solution is to stop having our wifes use the phone!:p j/k people :D

    I learned a lot. I posted a comment about it in a different thread....

    http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/80844-ota-2-1-leaked.html

    Based on what I was told, if I were you I would install v3.

    In addition, for my problem, she suggested I do a *228 option 2 (I guess for some reason me and my wife were on different towers even though I updated our phones at the same time). Also, she said perhaps a power off would solve the problem. I was told that the numerous semptems couldn't be pinpointed to only software or hardware issues, but maybe both.

    My account was documented. I will have my wife keep an eye on it for a few days and let me know how it goes.

    This is the very first time she or I have ever had a problem with our phones. We have had them since Feb.
