Droid Eris Over-the-Air Update Being Pushed Out Tonight

At midnight tonight, Verizon will begin the process of pushing out an update for the Droid Eris. The process will be gradual and it may be up to a week before all customers receive the update. As with the Droid, you'll receive an alert and then need to accept a download.

Things affected by this update are:

• While on a call and the device is in screensaver mode, pressing the
End key now takes the device out of screensaver mode, and a second
press will end the call.
• On-call mute and speakerphone icon functionality is enhanced.
• Upgraded functionality after activation eliminates the delay users
were experiencing in receiving their first call.
• Device now switches effectively from 1x mode to 3G.
• Device no longer requires users to reselect a default email after
power-cycling.
• Improved picture messaging functionality allows messages from LG
phones to be opened.
