HTC ERIS TIP for newbies to the phone

The thing that held me up when I first got my Eris and was trying to explore all the different functions, was the part where if you hold down on an icon, it gives you a whole other menu of things to do with it. This is true for most icons, and especially important when it comes to contacts and messaging. Press and hold for about 2 seconds on a message, a contact, anything on this phone, and it makes a world of difference in functionality.

Droid Eris phone only works now when plugged in. hangs up during phone calls. screen is displaced, can't scroll.....


Try to backup your data (messages, contacts, etc.) and software you downloaded or installed first. Then try to soft factory reset. It is on the settings->privacy. or try hard factory reset. turn off your Eris. Hold the volume down key, send, and end. Press trackball to agree to reset.

my droid eris is frozen htc.how can i get to work again.


Try pulling the battery out for at least 15 seconds and the put it back in and reboot.
If that doesn't work, try resetting it by holding the volume down button and the Send button, then while holding both those buttons, press the End key.
If worse comes to worse, go to the Verizon store and see if they can help.

I have a Droid Eris and I'm having difficulty deleting my text messages threads in bulk...i have over 3000 messages in one thread how do i delete them all at once without my phone freezing up?


you can either delete the entire thread and just wait while it deletes and not use your phone or to prevent it from freezing up you can delete each manually by holding it down until the menu pops up.
