    Loving my iPhone 4! A whole lot faster in terms of process power, night and day difference between this and the 3G.

    Yeah I had the same issue with my 3G and made me want to rip my hair out... The 4 has none of those lag problems and is extremely faster.

    if you're absolutely stuck with ATT i'd go iphone 4 if you can afford the bill. of course if you have the option, switch to a provider that actually has more than 5 cell towers.

    i've got the droid and i'm a big fan. its not as polished or smooth as the iphone but its pretty damn good. and for someone who doesn't really care about the iphone and who wont use ATT for anything, android is a perfect alternative. Android will only improve as time goes on so i'm sticking with them. Android+Verizon nework = Win

    Thats funny because My GF is a project manager for a contracting company that does the locations for the towers for T-mobile, Verizon, and At&T and she has ATT because of there tower coverage ;)

    Back on topic, go with the captivate I switched from iPhone to droid and love the droid platform.

    Just bought my first "smartphone". I'm kinda stuck with AT&T, but I chose the iPhone 4 over the Captivate. So far, I couldn't be happier

    Im pretty much stuck with At&T. BUT i was reading the comparison and the iPhone has way more talk time and longer battery life. i guess because the captivate has the moving wallpapers. but ill be ordering next week...still not sure what i want.

    so what you're saying is they have the account because their coverage sucks so much and htey need help?

    the wallpapers wont make much difference. from what i can tell Apple put alot of work into making the phone as effeicient as possible and getting as much as they can out of what's available. i'm not huge on iphones but i have heard some good things about the new phones bat life

    Droid Incredible.

    One of the cool features about it is that the antenna isn't on the OUTSIDE of the phone like the iPhone 4, so you actually get reception when your skin is touching the phone. Really cool feature I think.

    Battery life is about the same on both phones. People at work have the iphone and we work 24 hour shifts they are comparable.
    And nd no its not for business all cell carriers use contracting agencies for there site builds for the most part.
