I've had my Eris for several months now and have enjoyed it (minus the volume and battery ) and have loved being rooted. I've had a few problems but nothing major. My wife on the other hand has gotten every p.o.s Eris made I think, by way of refurb. After her fifth replacement the Verizon Rep offered her Motorola droids for us both. I'm not much on sliders but is the phone itself worth the trade for the Eris? I'm not asking someone to tell me what I should like, just some different opinions of which phone you would pick if given the choice and why.
