Hey every body. I just got my eris about a week ago and Im loving It! I’ve already figured out. multiple ways to integrate it into my music production. I’ve even recorded a sound from a touch screen synth instrument and used it in a song. Lol.

Check out some of my music if you’d like…

PhoneMyPC is the greatest app of all time.
Check out and a video I made of me using my eris to completely control my recording software on my computer.

I ran the updates last night, and they said it was supposed to fix the problem, yet since the update i have had unlock screen become unresponsive 3 times in less then 24 hours where it didn’t do it even once for me before . .


I’ve had the screen lock up on me a few times over the past month, so I’m glad to have this update as it’s pretty much been the only problem I’ve had with the phone.

Well, that and the lack of update to the latest version of Android. It’s frustrating to know the Eris can easily be running google navigator.


I returned my eris since it was locking up all the time. Loved the phone but couldnt handle this and the sluggish performance. I am curious if this update helps others who were having this problem.
