    All right, I'm getting ready to go trade my Droid X and Verizon in for an iPhone 4 and AT&T. I'm feeling confident that I'm making the right choice, but does anyone have anything to add before I go through with it??? Any comments, good or bad, are welcome!:)

    Only thing I regret in my switch to the iPhone was that I waited so long. Go for it and please download Minion Mayhem. I'm stuck on level 9 and can't find any help on it.

    I think you still have 30 days to cancel if you're not happy with the phone or AT&T. My suggestion would be to keep your old phone active another week or two while you try out the iPhone. This way if you're not happy then you can just return it and go back to your old crappy phone. :D I think you will be in love with it once you hit that power button! Good Luck!

    Yeah, Angry Birds is one of the things that made me finally want to switch. It's not the game itself, but it's the fact that Angry Birds Beta is the best game on Android. Seriously, Android has been out for awhile now, and the best game we got was a Beta, kind of sad. Can't wait!:D

    Pick service first. Are you able to get good ATT service in your area?

    I've checked out the coverage map and talked with people who have AT&T in the area and it seems like it. Really, coverage is going to be better 90% of the time for me on AT&T, but not because of their service. I work at a school, and it has wifi, but that wifi is a proxy server, which my Android phone has never been able to access. However, I know that everyone in the school can join it, so that 8-10 hours/day I know that I'll have better coverage. Can I ask how your experience has been with coverage?

    We live in Philadelphia. Been long time happy and satisifed ATT customers(att>cingular>att). Service is excellent in the Philly area.

    All right, I picked it up last night...and I'm totally geeked out! I'm sure this newness will wear off, but the experience of the phone is sooo different/better than Android, imho. I was a Droid, then a Droid X user and everything on here seems so polished, and I hate to say it, but it really does just seem to work. As far as coverage goes, it's not as good so far, but not bad either. Near my house, which is a little out in the country, I switch to Edge when driving to work, but otherwise it's 3G. So far, no lack of coverage. I'll keep checking it out, but I'm a happy camper so far!

    iOS doesn't have the bells and whistles like android. But in my opinion like you said it's more polished and it just works. To me it's just a more polished, simpler os.

    But you checked Att coverage and found out it was decent, right?

    Yeah, I'm not sure about the bells and whistles, but it's great so far. You had to root your phone and install a ROM to get a battery percentage on the Droid X, for instance. And yeah, so far AT&T isn't as good as Verizon around where I live, but it's not much worse. I haven't lost a signal yet, just been dropped down to Edge, which is workable.
