why not android??

I understand that when the original iPhone was released, it was a revolutionary device. but since then, other platforms began to catch up. the one that stands out about all others is the android platform. i've seen many people ask for a true comparison between apple and android, so here ya go: HTC Thunderbolt vs Apple iPhone 4

thunderbolt is 4g, iphone is 3g

thunderbolt supports simultaneous voice/data (including mms during active call), iphone does not

thunderbolt has better/faster processor

thunderbolt has expandable external memory, iphone does not

thunderbolt has fm radio, iphone does not

Are the apps that are on a AT&T iPhone transferable to the Verizon iPhone? My contract isn't up for a while but I am wondering. I know my apps are on my iTunes account. Any input would be appreciated.

Side-by-side....I'm seeing VZW with the far!

Carrying both ATT and VZW. In true geek style (plus..I'm a bit anal in my testing scenarios at work anyways), each phone has all the same apps, in all the same places.

I usually have them right beside each other wherever I am...currently, I am at my desk (where I spend a majority of my time.

ATT = 1 bar
VZW = 5 bars

I have several apps, that I frequent regularly, positioned close to each other on the main page.

I am seeing the VZW phone load and refresh each app times pushing 30 seconds faster. I know...thats not an eternity....but it really is, for ATT, when they have such inflated claims.

Facebook: VZW by half a second

Cnet: VZW by 2 seconds

Yellowpages search: VZW by 1.5 seconds

Does Verizon Wireless offer insurance on the iPhone or do you get it from Apple? I went to the store Thursday. I saw the different protection packages for the iPhone ranging from $70. to %100.

What is the Scoop on Reception?

I have been a LONG time Blackberry user - the original 256 color God know what model to the Pearl, Curve, Tour, and Bold. I have used BB for business and personal. My daughter is a huge Ipod fan and she is now at the Ipod Touch level. I happen to like the touch, and decided to bite the bullet and get the IPhone last week through pre-order. I have had it a few days now, and I am seeing reviews of the same antenna issues with it that plaqued ATT. I am seriously considering returning it and keeping my BB because I cannot believe a piece of equipment from Apple, who spends millions in advertising, would sell an inferior product. I have been trying to do my own hand-holding tests between the out of case IPhone and my Bold, and have had varie...

iphone reviews

I find it humorous that most of the negative comments about VZW iphone mention that you can not talk and surf web. That was known from the beginning. Are these reviews from VZW customers who live under a rock, or from AT&T customers trying to drive the ratings down?

How strong is the vibrate mode?

I'm happy the iPhone has come to Verizon. I've been with Verizon for years, since they bought out GTE in North Carolina.....maybe 15 to 20 years ago. My partner has had an iPhone since AT&T first rolled them out, so I know about all its virtues. The only reason I still have an LG-VX8700 is that I can feel it vibrate when I get a phone call, and when I have tested out my partners iPhone, I could never feel it vibrate. First and formost for me, this device will be a telephone and if I don't know anyone is trying to get in touch with me, whats the point inn having one. I use a small pouch which you wear on your belt, made by a company called Ripoffs. They are great holster/pouches. Heck, I can feel my LG vibrate while sitting on my riding...
