    Nope, I have always been extremely with my IPhone and haven't considered looking at another phone. Plus I hate verizon and will not even consider using their service

    how can you say the Iphone is best if you've never used the Incredible? that's like saying your camry is the best because your satisfied with it. just because you're satisfied with something doesn't make it the best. I can think of a lot of cars better than the camry.

    Because, I've played around with my friends touch screen phones and in no way do they compare to the iPhone. The iPhones touch sensors are spot on 100% accurate even with my big fingers. Plus they are strong. My 1st gen iPhone lasted me 3 years and could go longer but it was time for an update. I put that phone through it's paces. I hope to get the same amount of years outta my 3GS. Plus my mom put her 3G through the washer, it still worked, the speakers made sound, took pics, it ran like normal. Only problem was the screens light wouldn't work.

    Plus I love the apps on the Iphone.
    I am also a big apple supporter.

    I just don't see any better phone to get or a phone so user friendly

    I say it's the best because I think it's the best, in my own opinion. Like I said, I haven't considered any other phones cause I think nothings better than the IPhone, so why look at other phones when they don't amount to the iPhone IMO. Others probably say I'm an idiot for thinking this but it's what I believe

    IMHO The Incredible stomps the Iphone and I have actually owned Iphones. I even have Reasons! Higher Rez OLED Screen. Open Dev OS. Can Hack your phone with apps from the app store, you don't have Steve jobs telling you what kind of apps you can have, Its not on AT&T, Completely customizable. You can literally replace every aspect of the OS if you dont like what is given to you. Better Camera. Removable Battery. Did I mention Open dev? If youre happy with Steve jobs and apple dictating what your OS should look like and what kind of apps youre allowed to have then go right ahead and enjoy your Iphone. Ill stick with a device i can do anything i want with right down to changing the battery.

    The android app market hasn't been around nearly as long as the Iphone app Store, but its catching up very fast. The apps for Android have made leaps and bounds since the Moto droid came out and its just going to get better.

    i cannot say one OS is better than the other

    ive only held a droid for approx 15 minutes...i didnt like the feel of the phone itself but the OS seemed fine

    i prefer the "feel" of the iphone

    thats neither here nor there tho




    my beef with verizon is not with the service itself...but rather its customer service

    i had a plan with them for approx 4 years...during the 4th year they (unbeknownst to me) linked my plan to my fathers plan and then locked my plan with a passcode that i was unaware of

    even going to the store with my dad they wouldnt undo it

    ive had major issues with their phones previously too and their ways of fixing it was to tell me i'd have to buy a new one

    ive been with AT&T now for 4 years and ive had 2 phones with zero problems...i have zero service issues...and when i need something done on my account its no problem...no passcodes...nothing
