My first post here, Hello everyone. Anyways my wife and i ditched Sprint after 10 years to get iPhones with Verizon. LOVE the phone, and am now trying to find great apps to get. There are so many out there and many are straight up junk, full of ads, etc. Researching the "best" ones takes time but i'm getting there. It's work, but the process is fun.
I kind of hated leaving Sprint, they were good to me over the years to say the least, but let's be honest.....they were never getting the iPhone and i've wanted one since they came out. Only thing stopping me was AT&T, their service in my area is horrible.

Well, I think this weekend I'm going to make the jump to an iPhone. I've gone from a Blackberry Curve, to a Droid Eris, and now its time for my upgrade. I was planning on holding out for the HTC Thunderbolt, but the more I thought about it, I'd just be a beta tester for a 4G network that is questionably ready and will suck the battery of my phone dry. I've always been a fan of the iPhone, but I wasn't leaving Verizon. I'm going to miss a few things from Android, but I'm excited about finally getting an iPhone 4. My question is where is the best place to actually buy it. Is there any difference between buying it at the Verizon Store, Best Buy, or an Apple store. All three are close by and I didn't know if one had an advantage over the other. I have a $50 upgrade credit from Verizon if that makes a difference.
I appreciate any advice and I'm looking forward to posting on the forums here now that I'm going to be an iPhone owner.

switched to a verizon iphone on Saturday - very happy i did!!!... at&t was just getting worse for me, not better in my area... dropped calls, poor signal, especially indoors... inconsistent speeds... and just not digging how at&t was becoming more and more like the "new verizon"...
i do miss the simultaneous voice/data, was a nice feature and frankly at&t's *only* trump card right now - but even that was not a deal breaker to prevent from switching (even while still under contract with at&t)... call quality, call performance (ie. no dropping) and data speed consistency are all way better on verizon for me in my area...
plus now i'm on the nationwide + canada plan, so can call my family back home without any extra long distance charge, and even roam in canada at no charge... Glad I switched!

I'm jumping the BlackBerry ship and getting an iPhone! I'll be getting mine on Monday! I'm tired of BlackBerry's lack of innovation! They have the same crap from 4 years ago except it has a trackpad and looks a lil different! I cant wait!!!!!!!!!!

I made the jump last night. My Droid Eris had served me well, but was on its last legs. I can't believe the difference just in battery life. I spent the night making a few calls and downloading and setting up a good many apps. It barely made a dent in my battery. I'm still getting used to doing my mail on this phone. I set up my G-Mail, but its so different than on my Droid. I like how its set up though, it's just an adjustment. iOS is just so smooth! I'm only on my first full day with the phone, but I'm not feeling any regret about this decision at all.

I made the switch.
Ok so after 6 months with a BB Tour and then another 6 months with a Droid Incredible. My wife and I finally bought Iphones.. 4 that is. WOW!! What a difference. Ok first off they really need the burn and bury BB. Nuff said. The Droid was ok but I never felt comfortable it. something about just seemed off. Maybe it was too much "does".
10 minutes after unboxing the Iphone I was home..OMG! I seriously cannot believe how comfortable it is in my hand. How great the screen looks. How easy it is. How many much much better apps there are. I will never you my Iphone behind.
I made the switch and I am never looking back..
