    Not gonna make it till October for the iPhone 5. This 4 is two years old...glass smashed on both sides...and the Internet is freezing more by the day. Can't live like this.
    Should I go the 4S route with Siri? Galaxy? Evo?

    I do love the iPhone but am open minded enough to switch.

    What say you?

    Here will be a smattering of smartass answers or people who have droid vs people who have an iphone saying their's iis better. I have a droid for personal and an iphone for work. They both have their advantages. I prefer the droid, it is more customizable and having flash rules. With the iphone the camera is a little more intuitive and it is easier to get accessories as their are a multitude of companies, good and bad, that line up to make iphone accessories.

    Just go to your wireless store and play around. Basically any app you can get for one you can get for the other.

    Android is like linux. You can do whatever you want, but it requires work.

    Iphone and ios is like macs os. It's made simple and easy so anyone can use it.

    If you're not a power user, stick with the iphone.

    If you live in an area that has 4G, I'd make that a priority. If you are on Verizon, that means getting something other than apple.

    Yup, got mine off Google store and went with 45 a month unlimited everything prepay. Fuck a contract.

    Apple's new turn by turn directions require a 4S since it uses Siri to talk to you.
