Meh.... Apple needs to do some serious renovations before I'll consider even looking at it. They don't listen to their users, it's their way or no way, and they always think they have a superior product that no one can touch and if someone makes something better they sue...

If you ask me, Verizon would be better off with a good hold on the android market and dump the Iphone... But that won't happen  ::)

Apple is losing customers because at&t is terrible. So Apple will make more money and Verizon will get millions of new customers. At&t should go out of business.

I am sure a lot of people are happy with their androids but I know people will be trading them in for an iphone. People are just crazy about iphones and I think android wouldn't be doing as well if the iphone was available for multiple carriers.

That's another thing apple needs to learn from Android... Open the OS. Phone developers can take android and make their own version of the OS. They also need to open the market up and stop being so picky about who can and can't make apps.

I realize the open OS doesn't seen like it matters since apple makes the hardware, but they'd be better off letting others make phones with their OS. Blackberry could benefit from it for example. Their hardware is always spot on, but their software is killing them.

I've always used RIM phones, but lately they're starting to be frustrating.  I'd kill for this.

I'm banking on fact if iPhone soars in popularity at Verizon the price of andriod will go down. My phone available for an upgrade soon, but I won't be purchasing a smart phone. I guess I'll stick to my simple phone for few more months or another year.

I don't think the price will go down because they're not going to be selling as much. Steve Jobs pretty much attacked android about their open OS. Saying it was sloppy and unprofessional. I'm not saying one is better but the android market is not very organized last time i saw it.

The great thing about the android market is that, for the most part, its controlled by users. If an app is broken or complete trash, you aren't going to see it for long. Android development is freakin' simple too. Never programmed? Use googles app builder and you can make your app without writing a single line of code.

Don't get me wrong, the Iphone is pretty cool. Its just created by an arrogant SOB ;)

I think that was a lot of Jobs problem, anyone can create crappy apps.

I have a quick question, I think Nate you could answer it well, I know you know phones. Say, mid-way through my phone contract, I just really dont like my phone, do I have to wait until my 2-year contract expires to get a new phone? Or is there an upgrade program of some sort?

I have Verizon by the way.

Call up your service provider and ask them.

If you are the main # on the account you can usually upgrade after 1 year. If not most likely have to wait it out or pay full price. I used to be a verizon vip which meant i could switch anytime but they got rid of the program.

Yes. I am pretty sure you can do it online too.

You can switch the phones online yourself. They will probably charge you in the store.

You can change to any Verizon phone at any time.

Take the new phone you want to use, dial *228 (call that number)

Select Option 1

It will ask for your number and the last 4 of the account holders SSN or account password.

It then programs your phone and your done!

I agree with you guys that the iPhone will be purchased for brand name alone. Many will want it just because they can have it. I love my Samsung Fascinate and would think twice about leaving Android based phones for anything else right now. The open source code allows the bugs to be worked out by the end-users/ developers. Right now Samsung/Verizon are in a big ticking match with my phone over who is doing what with the Froyo update. The phone is great, don't get me wrong, but there are a few simple things like GPS issues that Froyo will fix along with speed and battery life. If this were an Apple phone we all would be screwed until they get off there arses to fix it. This phone could be fixed with a simple ROM release if they would just do it.
