seeking some knowledge
So here's the deal i am curretly eligible for an early upgrade and i currently own the motorola droid. The reason why im looking into upgrading my phone is that the right side of the screen on my droid does not work, my speakers does not work well, my warranty is also up, and also my battery dies within 5-6 hours. What i'm looking for in a phone are the capablities to: text moderately, at least a full day of use, youtube every now and then, have my emails pushed to my phone. So i'm seeking some knowledge before towards a good decision seeing the fact that i'll have this phone for the next 20 months

thank you for the advice, it's just that the iphone is 3g n i know that over the next 20 month most people may be carrying 4g and not to mention apple may release a 4g iphone. That's also one of the reason why i find it hard to make my decision and i'm basically a noob at this.

Every day that you wait, you miss out on having a great phone, ESPECIALLY if your Droid is on its last leg. You, like everyone else, are wondering...when will my area have 4G and when will they come out with a 4G iPhone. Lots of unanswered questions. My particular stance was...I will cross that bridge when I get to it. In the mean time, I will be able to enjoy the current iPhone.

I understand that you are concerned about 4G, but unless you live in a major city, i wouldn't expect it to be in your area in 2011 or possibly 2012. Verizon says that 4G capabilities' coverage will equal 3G's coverage in 2013. So in other words, in 2013, 4G will be the new 3G for Verizon.

Go to this Verizon link to see if there is 4G in your area, 4G LTE will go nationwide in 2013 according to Verizon Information..
Personally Im not hung up on the 4G at this point, I don't have it in my area so it is a non issue if it's not even available in your area and the areas that you travel in..

I live in NYC also and since there are no 4G phones currently available and I had a blackberry on it's last legs I went for an iPhone and absolutely love it. I figure by the time my next upgrade rolls around there will be plenty of 4G phones to choose from so it won't be a problem. I get the same awesome service I always have and I can't see you having a problem with a 3G phone with what you want to use it for.

I had 4 Android phones, all of which were horrendous on battery & issues. I was due for my last annual upgrade on a 2 year contract and got the iPhone. I love it!!! Droid has nothing on the iPhone. I live just outside of Boston, and there is 4G here, but I really wanted the iPhone. You can't go wrong with the iPhone. I went all day yesterday, from 6am to 10pm, without having to plug it in...and that was with texting, some internet & Youtube, and calls.
