In the United States, Land Rover = Range Rover and these are "upscale" SUVs here. Rich people, celebrities, etc drive them.... They're a completely different animal than the Land Rovers that my uncles and cousins have in N Ireland with rubber floor mats, vinyl seats, bench seats in the back that run lengthwise, and so on !

+ - Verizon Wireless HTC Eris users unable to dial 911

What has happened since the update to Android 2.1 is that some phones get dead silence (can't hear the person they call nor can the other end hear you). The only solution is to reboot the phone, though it will re-appear after some time. VZW tech support for a while was simply swapping Eris phones for Eris phones in hopes that the replacement didn't have the issue too. Too many were though and some users have been told they're not swapping anymore because the replacement will probably have it too. A couple of days ago, a user witnessed a car accident and was unable to call 911. Well, at least not until after they'd rebooted their phone.
