Which is unlimited data, something you wont get on some other carriers that carry the iPhone. Not to mention that the Moto Bionic and HTC Thunderbolt are coming... LTE > 3G.

I returned my iPhone today. Turns out the grass is not always greener on the other side.

The phone didn't work at my house at all, the data connection dropped intermittently, and I missed my Android notification bar and Google Apps really bad.

But the apps are beautiful, the battery life is fantastic, and it's smooth and polished.

I know some of you *think* I'm an Apple fanboy, but I'm really not. It just all depends on what you need. I would gladly recommend either depending on who needs what. iOS has quirks and Android has quirks. Android's quirks are less..severe than the iPhone's at this point I suppose. Maybe Apple's switch to Qualcomm will fix it.

switching from the samsung-made A4 to a qualcomm cpu doesnt seem like an improvement to me. speaking of qualcomm, the blackberry wasnt exactly known for its reception either.

My BlackBerry had just fine reception, so did my GF's. Hummingbird's make me lol. Snapdragons ftw. That is, unless the Tegra3 can blow my socks off....

I still refuse to get a smart phone with internet (and the extra charges that go with it) because an old fart like me thinks even my laptop screen is too small to surf with-lol!

It's okay, I think we'd all be better off with our technologies.

Did you mean better off without? If so, I agree somewhat.

I do miss the days before everyone had computers, cell phones were non existent, satellite tv was only for the rich people who wanted the playboy channel and a hot car was an American muscle car from 15 years before you were born and we all made fun of the riced out tune jobbers out there now...

But, I'm also glad we have some of these things as well. Not sure how I would rate everything - probably 60 percent miss the laid back non technical days and 40 percent glad they're over!

I think the only thing wrong with being in constant contact with the world is that people expect you to respond to every text and answer every phone call right then and there. There are plenty of times while working that I simply can't answer a call.
