    Well i just got off the phone with verizon and it seems my wifes eris just died. Before calling i tried a hard reset and nothing. Its stuck in an endless reboot cycle, you just see the droid bootup screen and then it keeps rebooting over and over. They are sending a replacement but it won't be here until friday :/ So they reprogrammed by old LG Decoy and for now she can use it. I know shes not going to happy with this, shes taking the dogs for a walk right now, but shes not going to be in a good mood when she finds out. Oh well.

    Its only 2 weeks old, i just hope mine doesn't decide to call it quits anytime soon. I didn't know these phones had so many defects until i did a search on here.

    Time to do a nandroid and titanium backup. At least then if something does happen to my phone i can get up and running again pretty quickly.

    That sucks. I had to exchange/return my girl's phone the other day because of all the problems it was having. Got the new to her phone and it is working great.
