I am a long time iPhone user and I do love it. I also do not seem to have any problems with AT&T service where I live. I have also found that AT&T works better in the places I tend to travel to when I am not at home. When I had Verizon our phones would not work in Iuka, MS or in Alaska. Our iPhones work in both places.
Still, I am so tempted to switch to Spring and get the HTC EVO 4G. I am mainly interested in it for two reasons...the large screen and the WiMax service (I am in Portland, OR).
I need to make up my mind because my AT&T contract is up for renewal this month and I need to decided whether to stay with AT&T and get the iPhone 4 or switch. Since I am grandfathered in I would be keeping my unlimited data plan with AT&T so that... (continues)
I have neither phone but currently use the HTC Touch Pro 2 which is the biggest pile of junk on the market.

I would suggest going month to month with AT&T with your current iphone for the next 60 days or so as the issues with Evo (if any) arise. Nobody is holding a gun to your head insisting that you purchase a phone immediately. I have used the iphone but the bottom line for me is... I don't like GSM service because it "sounds funny" to me and prefer CDMA clarity. Stick with what you know...if you're happy with the iphone, then keep it. After 60 days, order the Evo and keep the iphone service concurrently until you are either satisfied or not satisfied with the Evo because you can always port your number at a later date. A port at a later date takes 3-5 days at most. I once used the HTC Hero and couldn't drive fast enough to the store to re... (continues)
