well lets get this straight....you DONT need a smart phone. people have been living without internet on their phone for...well, ever. BUT, if you do get one, you will not regret it because their is so many things you can do with it and your life will be alot easier. so if you want to pay the mere 30$ extra a month for one, i would highly recommend an Android device. Forget the iPhone, android is gonna run the iphone and steve jobs into the ground.

i have the moto droid and would recommend it to anyone. its got the physical keyboard and the touch keyboard if you prefer one over the other. i actually really like the touch over the physical, but to each his own.

yes the moto droid is the "old" droid now since the incredible has came out, but it has a much better screen that the incredible, just not a fast. but i do not mean it is slow....because the moto is still VERY fast.
with multitasking, 16gb of removable memory (something else the iphone does not have), gorgeous screen, awesome video player, nice camera, and oh yeah a pretty good speaker and mic for clear calls......you should be happy with a droid device.

android is the way to go jgano.

My information comes from a friend that has an iPhone, happens to work for Apple (not in the phone department btw), and has left drool stains all over my Eris. You can do multi-tasking if you jail break an iPhone as stated earlier. I do know that Apple has been working on the multi-tasking issue, they may have released it to the general public already.

Folders refers to actual folders, like on your desktop of your computer where you can store your programs. On my Eris, I can put 20 apps in a folder, 16 folders per home screen, and I have 7 home screens. That's a max of 15,680 apps. Granted that's WAY overboard, and the phone doesn't have the internal memory to hold anything near that many apps.

I like the Apple iPhone, don't get me wrong. I just feel the Android platform is better.

As stated earlier, you are wrong....multitasking is a tricky word....there are things I cannot do on my NON JAILBROKEN iphone. but all the things you listed can be done on any regular iphone

Well Apple doesn't use folders, so Android wins there I guess. I can't argue that the Android OS is fantastic. I personally just can't stand the user interface. I'm used to the Apple interface, and it just makes sense to me.

But I just wanted to clarify that ANY off the shelf iphone can-

1. Have a phone call conversation while you look something up on the internet, open another app, play a game, text someone else.
2. listen to music while doing other things.(surfing web etc.) I'm doing this right now....


To anyone wanting a smartphone - don't go off my or anyone else's opinion. GO and play with them. hold them. Which do YOU prefer. This is much more important than what some Geek on the other side of the country thinks. There is a lot of hype and mis-information out there about all of these devices...so don't listen to any of it, try to get some first hand experience with them (even if its in the store). See which one you can navigate, and utilize easiest (if its not easy, most people won't do it.)

I could list out pro's and cons to both operating systems (since with Android we aren't referring to a single device...which to me is both a pro and a con). but it would take too long, and I think you'll be better off to find it out on your own (as it won't be nearly as biased).

FWIW I also prefer-
mac's to PC's.
Xbox 360 to PS3
Dollars to Euros.
Texas to all others.

I have a Blackberry Curve and absolutely love it. The extra 20 bucks it costs me a month comes in handy. I have an IM feature on my phone that I can IM directly with friends (kind of like texting but better). I also have several apps that come in handy, such as a fandango app that I can purchase movie tickets as soon as I know we are going and can see all of the show times, ESPN and SporsZone for my immediate up to the second sports scores and all of the local news stations. I even have an electronic Bible to study from and can just use that instead of carrying a bulky Bible into the service. Being able to access the internet at a moments notice to get information makes life very easy. I don't have the GPS feature, since I already have one, but I hear it is very nice too.

Oh.. and I don't EVER have any issues with the keyboard. I do know how to type, which makes it easier, but I can whip out a text in no time.

I know its an old thread but I wanted to make use the "Search" feature and I didn't want to start a new thread.

I currently have the Iphone 3GS through AT&T, but I'm really tired of it. I am NOT changing carriers so no need for other phones that they don't already offer and I'm too lazy to "unlock" or "jailbreak" anything. I don't really want the Iphone 4. I could wait until the Iphone 5/Iphone 4s (whatever they decide to call it) comes out, but I don't know if I really like this set up. Currently I've been looking at the Samsung Infuse 4G, but the Motorola Atrix seems cool too. Anyone have these phones that could give their reviews on the phone and not be bias? What other AT&T only phone would you recommend?

You mean AT&T still has wireless? I thought they were branching out into the cable TV business... I'm all verizon and havent looked back since we switched from Cingular which was bought out by AT&T... I hated their service...

I loved Verizon!!! I wish I hadn't changed carrier, but I was getting shafted! I was paying 175/ month for unlimited everything on my Blackberry Storm, which sucked but I like the Blackberry concept. I get a girlfriend and then she wanted the Iphone so we switched to AT&T. Now we are grandfathered in to the old unlimited data package so I don't want to switch to the new data packages that restrict you to a certain amount of data a month... and I use it a lot! So getting back to my question, wait for the newer Ipnone or Atrix or Infuse 4g?
