    Default Cell Phone Advice

    I am in line for a new cell phone at the end of the month. I am currently in Verizon and am pretty sure I want to stay with him. Does anyone have any recommendations from Verizon's line of phones? I am specifically considering a Droid.

    Or should I just say "screw it" and get an iPhone? :p

    My son got one of the first generation I-phones, lately he has had trouble with dropping calls and not receiving text messages. My boss and his wife also have one. They have the 3g, however he hates it, again he will not get calls or text messages at times. He gets bad reception in areas that should be good. His wife loves hers. If it helps at all, my son is due for an upgrade and he isn't getting the i-phone, he is switching.

    I noticed that Terri's cell from work is a smart phone through Sprint. She can't get reception here at the house, where the rest of us can. I am beginning to wonder if it has to do with the technology of the smart phones, like the internal antenna or something like that.

    Always with me

    Not at all familiar with Verizon, but I think Droid is their answer to iphone, isn't it? We were with T-Mobile for years and I got a My Touch, which was their version of the iphone. My daughter has the iphone by AT&T, and so I was familiar with it. The My Touch did not begin to compare! I ended up getting on my daughter's family plan and got the 3g iphone which is AMAZING!! I love, Love, LOVE it!! I've heard the new 4g iphones are troublesome, but the prices of the 3g have dropped since the 4g came out. I've never had any problem at all with mine.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    My boyfriend has the driod and so does our friend Matt, they LOVE it and actually like it better than the iphone. They don't have the brand new model but I know they got them less than a year ago.

    I ended up getting a Samsung Galaxy Fascinate, which is a Android through Verizon, and I really love it. It's like an iPhone only it makes calls too!

    My husband has one of the 4G phones ... he likes it but it is a lot bigger than any other phone. As I carry my phone in my pocket all the time it's kinda ruled out the 4G phones for me.

    The Droid is a 3G and is really more like a tiny computer than a phone! It's amazing!

    I am also REALLY hard on my phones, so I hope this one lasts!
