    That's what I read...so just passing on...I wonder if there is an additional step or two to do a hard reset...as the hard reset is what does the reset. Here is a quote from the manual:

    10.4 Resetting the Phone

    Resetting the phone deletes all data, including downloaded
    applications, and resets the phone back to its initial state—the state
    before you turned on the phone for the first time.
    Important Make sure to back up important data you have on the phone
    before you reset your phone.

    To reset the phone
    1. Press HOME > MENU, then tap Settings > Security > Factory data
    reset.
    2. On the Factory data reset screen, tap Reset phone and then tap
    Erase everything.
    To reset the phone using phone buttons
    1. With the phone turned off, press and hold the VOLUME DOWN
    and SEND buttons
    2. Press the END/POWER button. You will see a screen with 3
    Android images at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Follow the instructions onscreen to reset your phone.
    Tip If your phone hangs or freezes, remove the battery then wait for a few
    seconds, and then re-install it. After re-installing the battery, turn on the
    phone.
    I know this doesn't say much about a battery pull or not at all actually , but it shows how to do a data wipe/hard reset....also see my post above for memory management in android OS in regards to battery pulls

    I already have all my storm games on eris (so that's like 20+)
    Speaking of task killer

    I was using Advanced Task killer and noticed a significant battery drain while using it. So I did some research and came across Advanced Task manager (it isn't free costs .99) but much better on battery and a ton more options
    Oooo! OK, grabbing Droid from porch & canceling FedEx pickup. That may be why my battery was only lasting 4-5hrs!

    Glad I looked in here tonight (although I do have a list of over 13 things I don't like about the Droid I posted earlier).

    Update Eris through VZW website

    For those who do not want to wait for the OTA Eris update you can download it directly from the VZW link listed below. Make sure you read the directions in its entirety.

    For me, the one thing I wish they could change is the copy feature. Either i suck at it or it's really bad on the os lol. O and trying to copy a txt someone else sent... forget about it... no luck

    That is correct. Copy and paste functionality is quite limited. But if that's the major concern, I would say the phone is doing pretty good

It's gotten me in trouble a few times lol.
