I had one of the original iPhones for 2 years and upgraded to the 3GS in April, just prior to the release of 4. The iPhone is for personal use.
For business use, I have a company provided BlackBerry Curve through AT&T. I do like the way the BB handles my contacts and e-mail.
My daughter has an Android phone from T-Mobile. Her phone does a lot of things that my iPhone does.
I still prefer the iPhone for now. Especially for fun things. Texting, tweeting is very easy and love the favorite contacts feature. The apps are wonderful and just overall love the phone. I've had very few problems with it, other than weak signal where I work in Port Lavaca, but that's AT&T's fault. The iPhone is far superior to the BB Curve. The only downfall I really see with the Droid is the lack of apps.
Add this to discussion as well:
It's an iPhone thing, you wouldn't understand
I just upgraded in July twice. Went to AT&T to get rid of my old slider phone. Had heard a lot about the android phones, but they were still somewhat new out. So I cheked out the iphone. Had lots of friends with the iphone and they said it was fantastic.
Even with an upgrade the iphone was gonna be expensive and after speaking with the sales associate I discovered I could not get insurance on it like with my previous phones. Insurance is a must for me. I am rough on phones. So the sales associate pointed me in the direction of the android phones. I went with the AT&T Backflip and loved it, but the screen was small, the thickness did not allow it to slide into a pocket well, and it was heavy, but the android technology was great. I loved this phone. Best phone ever.
Then not 10 days later AT&T introduced the Samsung Captivate. This phone had a bigger screen, was way thinner, and was almost nothing. I returned the Backflip for the Captivate and will never own an iphone now. The Captivate is everything I am looking for in a phone.
Android rules over the iphone. No drooped calls, I can get a signal even in the basment of a parking garage, new apps everyday, and if I break it, I can replace it through my insurance and not have to buy a new one at cost.
I have a Droid and so does hubby. We love them. Fast, wireless everywhere, open source and real qwerty keyboard. I would take a pineapple over an apple any day.
the best phone is a free phone
my company mails me new blackberry every 18 months or so and that's the best phone ever
haven't seen a cell phone bill in 15 years
I gave my hubby, a geeky tech snob, the Droid for Christmas & he loves it.
Like the chances of winning at Palace Bingo, I will be the only 1 to mention iPhone pride? Come on, the rest are imitators of the master. Aprill is giving pineapples, Jobs said he would send me the new 4!
I might just break out into a version of "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" to celebrate!
Kyle, you have redeemed yourself. TWO pineapples for you for the "Han Droid" comment.
Me myself went into AT&T with a open mind. I compared the I phone, the black berry bold and the samsung captivate galaxy s. I weighed the options and at the time I was a in love with my black berry bold. I know that the I phone had problems with dropped calls and needed a case to work correctly plus Apple totally controls everything and you have no chip in your phone. That prevents you from going back to the old phone if your not happy. Then I looked at the Black Berry Bold. Nothing really changed at that time from the phone I had. I am very aware the black berry does not share well with others. It shares but wont let you receive unless its from another black berry. Then there is the Samsung Captivate galaxy s which is a member of the droid family. It was sleek, has the same apps that you can find on Iphone and it allows you to have a chip and a memory chip as well. It did not have a reputation of dropped calls but the accessories were limited because it was new to the AT&T family. After about 3 hours of playing with all the phones, I chose the Samsung galaxy s. I do not regret it and its has by far out performed my brothers i phone. So I am with the droid. I love it!
Droid wins. Faster bigger and yeah did I say faster.
Oh, sorry Kyle, you already covered that one.
Han Droid (see that? Star Wars AND Google)
The indecisive Psychologist can use a Freud.
These are the Droids you're looking for.
(Sorry, couldn't help it)
OK, fine. Half a pineapple for you, Kyle. Maybe even 2/3.
Um... a Drone?
John! That is brilliant! I'll be first in line to see it. Maybe you could make something like a chupacabra trying to eat a pineapple. Like Pac Man but wicked cooler.

I think I will keep my iPad for the apps and trade in my Blackberry for the Droid when my upgrade comes around.... The best of both worlds.
(My phone got me laughed out of a Tweet-up.)
I'll take a Droid or an iPhone. I still have my outdated flip-phone. I need to duct-tape my iPod Touch+flip-phone+camera to my laptop in order to be up-to-tech. D=
No pineapple for you, KyleC.
BTW, iPhroid sounds like something painful that requires a doctor to remove. :)
I have an iPhone and have had one for two years. That said, I do not think the Droid is lame at all. I think it is a great mobile device and if I were not using an iPhone, I would get a Droid. I really like the Android OS, and can't wait to try out the Droid 2.

Yessss. Free pineapples for everyone!
gotta give it to Android....
I didn't think it was, John. Just didn't want it to be misunderstood by other readers.
Aw, now, no personal insults. They're all great guys. Just want a fun debate about the phones.
Lame? Lame. That's all I ever hear iPhone fanboys say. They can't tell you WHY it's lame, though. And they can't tell you WHY the iPhone is supposedly superior. They say, "It just IS." Hmmm....
They said...(quivering lip)...they said it was lame.
(In their defense, I have an LG Ally, which is in the Android family but not as awesome as the actual Droids).
What exactly were the Droid-bashers saying? I don't have a Droid, but I am pro-Android phones, and I am constantly mystified by the iPhone fanboys.
The HTC EVO outperforms the iPhone in several areas and is less expensive. Sure, there aren't as many apps out there (yet) for Android users, but really, who needs 30 fart apps?
