That's one of the dumbest things ive read in a long time.


Anyways. I like the GS3 a lot. also WP8 looks very appealing. Go give them a play at your local verizon. (coming from an iPhone 5 owner)

i have an iPhone 4, and i love it, but im not an apple fanboy. i think there are better things to both. i like the Android 4.0 and 4.1 interface alot more than apples shitty boring no widget interface. most of androids phones are powerhouses but the OS lacks architecture to use the power correctly... apples phones are nice, but you also have to think about how IOS is only made to run one ONE phone, and that ONE phone is all apple has to worry about working well... on the other side, apps for IOS are much higher quality, BUT more apps on android are free... up to OP, but my iPhone has been great so far, even if it is only the 4, however the newer androids coming out are very tempting. cloud storage is moot point since both platforms do it outstanding...

Sold the truck to my brother, using that money towards my car. So he's got the taco now. I love it though. Wont look back... Boost is , Symmetrical AWD is . I love the hatchback, having all that room inside compared to the taco is a dream (i had an access cab). But im happy to see the taco stay in the family. I have a feeling my family is going to hang on to it for a loooooooooooooooong time.

but the open source part of Android is amazing, and just about as addicting as modding our trucks dude. trust me. there are endless possibilities with a rooted Android phone, up to and including breaking it for good. in all seriousness, i do think apple makes a better product, but i could own either and be just as happy, im not tied to my iphone by any means, and im certainly not won-over by apple either. i would imessage is an awesome thing to have, and that you dont realize how much you take it for granted until you dont have it... kind of like windshield wipers

yea, usually shit like that just needs the phone to be wiped clean and restored. takes no time with icloud backups, as android takes no time with gmail backups either. i will say that i dont know where my life would be without a smartphone in general though... i rely so much on it.

Hahaha, i used to be young and dumb once. I have since changed. I keep it under the speed limit, although i do like the occasional 3rd gear pull on the freeway from time to time. But the local law enforcement loves these cars. And yeah the $80 fill up got old real quick. im loving the 20mpg and $50 fill up.

Not to hijack your thread but I'd like a new phone too with similar features, 4G for sure, but not as high priced as the galaxy s3. Definitely Android.

Just switched from a Droid X to a iPhone 4 and I'm not impressed.
