I thought this would be a new member announcement.

 

I have been on the fence about getting a phone that can do internet but have been thinking lately that I might as well get a notebook and hit up wifi instead of opting for a data plan.

No complaints really. A few minor bugs but nothing that wouldnt be resolved in coming software upgrades. The screen is gorgeous, its light as a feather, is pretty snappy and does internet really well. Im posting this from the phone right now

so you can get a wifi phone and with a bit of fooling around you can pretty much call for free without paying?

3rd quarter of next year verizon (and probably other networks also) will have a newer, slightly smaller, iphone

Shit i'm on verizon too and can't join the iphone cult since i don't want att. This seems like a pretty good phone and probably a runner up if not better. I might be looking into one soon.

im assuming the eris does not have a keyboard. so whats your experience with that? good or bad?

 

My bro has an upgrade by the end of the month and cant decide to get the eris or the droid.

 

quick question. You "have" to have the internet for both phones? I have the blackberry storm and i have no choice but to pay them bastards for the net.

I think for now all smartphones require the internet. I hear that att will eventually do away

with this to meet consumer demand. But I wouldn't hold my breath.

no keyboard on the eris, it's on the screen. it took a little getting used to, but after an hour or so i had the hang of it. the eris also has a scroll wheel, but i'm not actually sure why. the only thing i've actually needed it for is to take photos strangely enough. otherwise you just scroll etc by swiping the screen. the droidon the other hand does have a physical keyboard, which as a result means the phone is bulky and heavy. if your bro wants a physical keyboard i would suggest the blackberry tour which is about $150 with a 2 year plan (or less if he's renewing his contract i think).

 

yes, you do have to get the data plan with the phone. it's about $25 a month for unlimited data on verizon
