iphone or android? you decide
I also like some apps on Apple better. I got side-by-side GPS comparison with them and went for the iPhone, since it was a lot simpler and easier to get where we were on the street (location services worked better, and asking for directions mid-street immediately popped up that we had to make a U-Turn in 200ft), while the Android was way off and giving us directions from way back in the exact same circumstance.
And as someone that owns and uses devices with WM 6.5, WP7, Android, BB, and iOS... I have plenty of nice things to say about WP7. The core of the phone is faster and smoother than anyone else, even Apple. WP7 does lack features and apps, but those will come with time. What they have as a core is great, and I actually use my HD7 more often than any of my other phones since it is so much smoother and quicker to do the basics.
Like I said already in correcting your BS claim you need a task manager in WP7 to stop mystery background apps... The only apps that run and use data in the background in WP7 is the core email app and messaging app for MMS, and the internet browser will finish loading the last page you typed in. The only apps that run at all in the background are the core OS and core OS apps. Period. WP7 does not multi-task like Android or even iOS, and thus there is no need for a task manager any wa...
Telling Rich Brome he doesn't know what he is talking about with regards to AT&T and what 4G devices they have and whether they work on their non-existent LTE network:

Or, like you did earlier in this thread, bashing Windows Mobile 7 for not having any task managers... Lets explore that claim a bit, again:
1. It is Windows Phone 7, not Windows Mobile 7
2. WP7 doesn't have a level of multi-tasking needed for a task manager (core OS apps, like SMS/MMS, phone, browser finishes loading last page, and music app...

It is super easy to turn off 3G, and data, all together on a WP7 device. Settings, cellular, then you have a couple toggles, one is cellular data, there is another called 3G data. Oddly enough, you can toggle these to turn the respective data connections on or off! Amazing! Right?
Once again, just stop trying to help people until you can help yourself. If you lack the skills to read and believe what Microsoft says and what AT&T says, about their own products, then you shouldn't be trying to educate others o...
