Ok I'm not sure if I am reposting something but i am kinda lost with my eris so i felt like i should finally ask some questions. First question is where do i start to find about info for my phone. i've looked around a little but there is so much out there that i have no idea where i begin. this is my first smart phone so i dont know what i need to, im pretty much a blank slate. second question is what happened after the update? it seems like my phone is a lot slower now. plus my last question for right now is what can i do to customize my phone? what options for customization do i have?
i know this is pretty much me being a noob but i am so i need help to shape me into a pro.
Hi and welcome! A great place to start to learn about your Eris would be the manual: http://member.america.htc.com/downl...erizon/DROID_ERIS_Verizon_English_UM_11_5.pdf

There is also a wealth of information in the sticky-ed thread called "Everything about your Eris"

Some useful hints I can think of...

*If you are looking for something or can't figure out how to do something, try long-pressing (tap and hold). This is exactly like the right-click function in Windows and will open up more options. I.E. to copy/paste text, refresh a web page, edit, etc.

*Hold down the Home button to open up a window with the last 6 apps that you were in. It's kind of like the alt-tab function in Windows.

*Make sure you are using the back button to exit applications. This ensures that the app is closed and not left running in the background. Exceptions to this rule are the web browser. If you've gone to a lot of pages, it will take a while to back all the way out. The Dolphin browser is a great alternative that has a Exit and clear cache option.

This forum is a great resource with lots of great people, but always remember to do your best to search for a solution before posting questions.
