    Root Funny how v3 leakers are rooting with replacements now

    I'm one of them but thought it was interesting to see some of the most active users who jumped at V3 leak went root. Don't blame anyone for doing it either. :D

    Why is Signal strength weird in 2.1 versus 1.5???

    I would like to know. Not even rooting helped the difference in signal from 1.5 to 2.1 (nonroot or root versions) One theory is that the 2.1 signal values are different and thus report a difference in signal in the bars and in settings.

    Planning to Root. Don't update. Something may be coming.

    I stumbled across this, not sure it's source or validity. Found here If nothing comes by the end of the year I suppose updating wouldn't be a problem since the next major update doesn't come until Jan or later. For now, I'll be holding off on the update and waiting to see what happens...

    Anyone experience weak bluetooth connectivity with the Eris? My stereo bluetooth headset gets choppy even if it's a few feet from my phone. I don't know if it's the phone's bluetooth signal or the headset. If the phone is in my pocket and I'm walking the shake from my step causes the signal...

    Eris vs. Moto Droids - What the owners are Saying.

    It seems to me that more Eris owners are happier with their phones than the Motorola Owners. I am a Eris owner after trying both phones and instantly knew the Motorola Droid, even with it cool now Google NAV, was not going to make me happy. Rather, it probably would have really frustrated...

    Early adopter woes...

    So far as an early adopter I'm not as impressed as I thought I would be. I think the release of the G1 would have been better if they had spent some more time on beefing up the hardware. Cons 1. The phone itself is flimsy and not what I would think as sturdy. 2. The OS is slow due to...

    How DO they get unlock codes?

    Just wondering if anyone knows, what is the method certain sites, without advertising them, employs to get unlock codes? Did they figure out the algorithm that spits out the codes? Why would they charge for something that should be free? (Stupid question, but I'm cheap) Anyone wanna try to...
