Why Cant I Root My Verison Wirless Droid Eris?

When i first got the Droid Eris it was a wonderful phone but i wanted to get the most out of this phone as possible. This lead me to looking up how to overclock your device increasing its speed. I then found out oyu had to do something called rooting it. By this time i had my phone for a while and i've gotten all the new updates. I then tried to "root" my phone but found it wasn't working. I asked around to my friends that aslo have the Eris and have overclocked it and they said i was doing it right. Then i asked them when they did this to their phone an dthey anwsered almost as soon as i got it. I did further research and found out at the time when my friends rooted their phone there were no new updates and they were running the same firmware it came with out of the box and i relized that i updated mine and along with fixes and additions this update took away the ability to "root" yuor device. Therefore not being able to overclock it.
Hope This Helps.

just don't know where to place my sim card for my HTC ERIS

Hey, I am sorry but the HTC DROID ERIS is a CDMA phone and not a GSM phone which means that it will not work on any GSM network worldwide. GSM networks use SIM cards whereas CDMA networks do not use sim cards. This phone is a CDMA phone means it works without a sim card and will not have a slot for you sim card. a list of specifications for theHTC DROID ERIS is available here
