I just returned my iPhone. I had hardware problems on two, in a row, and the AT&T coverage around here wasn't worth the hassle. I have since returned to verizon. I got the new chocolate phone (no iphone, but pretty sweet), and have started the inevitable comparison to my previous device. I know having an iPhone is pretty cool, but consider what I have noticed about my new chocolate (which cost me $250 and that includes 4gigs of storage and stereo bluetooth earphones). -music storage-4gigs (and it's micro sd, so you can carry extra around with you) -internet-mobile web 2.0 (not even close to safari), but you can access most of the info you want on a mobile device. -photos-again, 4 gigs of storage (have to work a little harder to put them on there of course) -Bluetooth-connects with virtually everything, and even has stereo bluetooth. -camera-1.3 megs, but also has zoom, and several settings to play around with. And you can even record videos with sound AND send them to people. -messaging-email, picture and video messaging. -Video- This is the biggest surprise for me. The iPhone streams youtube. With any verizon phone, you can access vcast and stream tons of content from dozens of tv channels. I woke up this morning, and instead of using the accuweather widget to find out what the day was going to be like. In about 30 seconds i was watching the accuweather video broadcast for the northeast region...waaaay better than my iphone weather checking routine. -maps- Yes, google maps are pretty, and very easy to use. But not having gps was a bit of a bummer. VZ Navigator is frigging unbelievable. It uses the gps in the phone to tell where you are, and bang, it's like walking around or driving with a nuvi on your cell phone..i didn't think i was going to be this impressed. You can even search for something....like say.."seafood", and then call one of the results with one click....sound familiar? Data network-EV-DO....which you all know, is slightly faster than edge. So the moral of the story....yes, i wish the iphone had worked out for me. But all and all, im not missing too much, and i have actually gained a little in some places. So if you're like me and are going to wait a while to jump on the band wagon, there are more than acceptable alternatives out there, and I think I found one. And yeah, the new chocolate gets the oooohs and ahhhs that i used to get with the iphone....just not as many. Good luck!
