It's strange to me that somehow the iphone for Verizon is a better phone. I've sold phones for ALL carriers. And while selling with AT&T I noticed that all the iphones had terrible signal, where as phones like the Samsung Captivate, Focus, LG Quantim, moto bravo, BB Tourch and other devices had perfectly fine signal. Every day I have an iphone question/problem/complaint ... rarely have complaints about the above phones. Seems like Apple might have upped the Anti for Verizon.

My advice to anyone who is an avid RIM user ... stick with what you know. If you're thinking of going to a touch interface like the iphone, consider the Androids. Verizon, ATT, T-mobile, Sprint all carry the Galaxy S line of Androids. Verizon has a massive selection of Androids including the Moto Droid series. It's just good to put all options on the table and weed out what you like and don't like. Go to a store, play around with phones, see if it fits you. Don't buy on a whim, especially iphones. Once you own an iphone it's yours. It's even hard to return an iphone at a store. Apple loves putting phone companies through the ringer.

If you're planning on using your phone as a media center (mp3, video, pics, facebook etc) then the iphone is a great device. The music is organized through itunes... it's very simple, user friendly ... and itunes is so much easier than any MP3 ap I've DL'd on my android device.

If you're an ap head ... and you're cheap enough to want free aps ... go with android.

Ugh, I lost my train of thought. I've been typing too long and ranting. I could have just said to buy a device based off of your needs and likes.
