    I got mine on release date, and am stuck with it for a good long while. That said I just want 2.1, and I am good. Forced upgrades are the nature of this beast. Get used to it or don't play.

    Besides the phones coming in late 2011 will make everything out now look like dirt.

    even if the Eris is dead, it will make a GREAT PDA for my kid, once root comes out and we can diasble the phone feature.

    come on, PDA with full wifi, bluetooth, music, GPS and more... that blows my Sony Clia PDA out of the water... the Eris can be retired as a toy for the kids =)

    Unless they lower the Moto Droid's cost, the Incredible could not replace the Eris as it is not an entry level phone.

    Have they even promoted the eris? I haven't seen a commercial for it.

    What I mean is supporting it and carrying it in their stores.

    Verizon had a few of their "map for that" ads that featured the Eris (the Island for Misfit toys), and HTC ran an ad for a while for the Eris.

    HTC phones never die. See G1 running CM 2.1 for proof.

    it's just very important that the device gets rooted now, which Verizon SHOULD be willing to help since they have discontinued the model long before the original purchasers contracts will expire.

    But they wont. They are Verizon.

    I don't believe Verizon is required to sell the phone in their stores for a full two years. I could be mistaken but I'm sure they are allowed to replace it with a different phone when the see fit. Plus it isn't like the phone will no longer function or will no longer recieve updates.

    I find it hard to believe that they're going to kill off the Eris after 5 months. Seems like a lot of R&D money wasted, not only that why are they investing the money in testing the 2.1 update.

    I agree with ERDude. The Incredible might come out but they will still offer the eris. It fills a niche.

    I definitely wouldn't consider the Eris to be in danger of 'dying'. I finally got mine about 36 hours ago and its been the greatest thing since sliced bread. My best friend got her moto Droid about a week ago and after practically stealing mine all last night to play with it, she wants to return hers for an Eris. I know the nexus and incredible are due out soon, but I don't like the nexus, and even the incredible isn't doing it for me. I've come from a line id blackberries and the eris has every one of them beat.
    I usually only last about 6 months with a phone before i have to have the latest and greatest toy available, but even when I had the tour I went about 10 months. My relationship with the eris is without a doubt going to outlast that :P

    Glad you're liking your eris. The form factor in my opinion is so much better than the droid. I don't see them getting rid of it either but probably not promoting it at all, not that they have promoted it very much anyway. With 2.1 its very competitive with other phones on the market at a much better price. Just doesn't have the "geek" factor reputation of other phones.

    I've been wanting to get an Android phone, but can't decide which. If Eris goes away in two weeks, I can't justify getting it. However, I've gone to two Verizon stores and a Best Buy and specifically asked about the Eris being discontinued. The Verizon stores denied it outright and Best Buy said something vague like, "it will slowly be phased out". I guess I'll wait a couple of weeks, but would actually like the Eris at Best Buy's price of $0.00!

    The eris maybe discontinued but its not going anywhere it may leave the shelves @ the store but they found root so its in your hands even if VZW went crazy and cut off support
