i did the same exact thing. although i never had a problem with my storm 1. i used my upgrade to get an eris because the android intrigued me and never looked back for one second. more stable operating system, no battery pulls for slow moving phone...aw heck you know what its like! and the X looks awesome, thats what my girlfriend is getting next month to get rid of her windows phone...whole other story... lol

I'll say one thing for the Storm 9530, it was THE phone on VZWs network that caused tens of thousands of users to drop their feature/dumb phones, fork up the extra dough and take the smartphone plunge. Granted the experience was less than steller (I'm being kind) but typically people who go the smartphone route rarely regress.
RIM indoctrinated all these new users only to lose them to Android devices 18-24 months later.

Re: finally left RIM for android
The storm was a great starter smartphone, but like any new device it wasn't without its bugs. I didn't use my upgrade to get my eris I just payed my friend $90 and I couldn't be happier. Going to upgrade to another android device this winter.

I am interested as to why you picked the Eris and not one of the more modern phones like the Droid Incredible.
I came to the Eris - my first smartphone - and it was basically the Droid (didn't like the size and didnt' like the slider keyboard) and the Eris. Small but sometimes kind of laggy. I ended up taking the Eris because it was only $50 at the time (mid March 2010). The Eris is OK, but I kind of wish that I had waited and gotten the incredible now.
