    Opening the Dialer no longer launches the keypad?

    Google Nav setting question

    Is there a way to always have the direction I'm going point to the top of the screen? Nav used to do this a while back and somewhere along the way an upgrade changed it. Makes me crazy to see the pointer going towards the bottom of the screen if I'm headed south. I want the screen to adjust...

    Root Pretty technical Launcher Pro question

    I'm running xtr with LP Pro. Really like the setup and especially the dock at the bottom from LP. I have Phone, Mail, App Drawer, SMS, and GMail on my dock. I spend 80% of my time there in the Mail app as my Eris is primarily a work device for me, and my company uses Exchange. My...

    Root Color notification bar on the DroidX

    A guy at work has the DroidX and I was playing with it today. Nice device. One of the things that looked really cool on it was that it had a color notif bar. All the notif icons were in color (FB, Mail, GMail, SMS, etc). It looks really cool. Any way to get that on a rooted Eris?

    Root Just Rooted, and flashed xtr 3.0.3. Couple of questions.

    Hi all, It's pretty late so I'll just get to the point :D 1. When I open the app drawer and select the Calendar, it open just fine. The moment I "touch" a particular day and try to open that, I get a force close. Anybody else had this happen? 2. How do I change the Lock Screen wallpaper...

    Root Okay... how impact does Root have on Eris lag, really?

    Voice-to-Text and punctuation

    I did a search and didn't come up with anything... which kinda of surprises me that nobody has opened a thread about this. I got the 2.1 OTA on Friday and have been playing around with this feature all weekend. Very cool stuff. But... it's not capitalizing the first letter of each sentence...

    BT planttronics headset not connecting to new 2.1 ota.

    Hi all, I just got the 2.1 OTA yesterday morning. I was one 1.5 and it loaded up without issue. A couple of quirky things to work out, but then again, there are so many more setting and functionality with 2.1. The update broke my existing link with my BT headset. So I went in and and set...

    Possible stupid question here, but... are we going to "lose" features with 2.x?

    Haven't been on the board in about 10 days. Been real busy with work and haven't had a chance to pop in here. Just dropped in tonight and WOW... all the 2.1 buzz, and leaked software this and that. Like a soap opera in here :D So here's a question I haven't seen posed yet. Are we going to...
