Yup. I see it happen a lot. Two of my coworkers had the iPhone 3GS, but then got the Motorola Droid because someone convinced them it was so much better. I, being a true-blue iPhone user, told them they were making a mistake.
They had their Droids for a few months until the whirlwind began to fade. They were reluctant to tell me this (because they didn't want to hear "I told you so."), but my other coworkers filled me in. One of the Droid coworkers would ask to use my iPhone to play games, or would ask me to look something up cause they didn't want to bother doing it with their Droids. Droid does?
Anyway, after less than 6 months they were back with the iPhone --the iPhone 4.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and an Iphone 4. Over the last two days I have swapped SIM cards like 6 times trying to decide on which I want to use. Simplicity VS customization. Stability vs Raw power. 3.5 inch screen vs 4.3 inch screen. Ugh.

Heh, I too am just coming back from other phones. Though I've been constantly switching OS' for a year or so now. I feel this time will be a bit more permanent, but who knows.
I mainly used webOS and my main device, but i have to say they are just to slow to get on the ball. Waiting on the Pre3 has taken way to long, lack of way to many apps, and I'm getting a little sick of the slider form factor (i don't hate it, its ehhh).
Don't get me wrong its definitely my favorite OS thats out there, but the other factors seem to weigh that one out.

I was in the same boat as you. I bought into the whole Android thing and switched to Verizon to get on board. Never again. I had so many problems with the droid phones. Went through 6 phones and then Verizon finally let me out of my contract after 3 months. I gladly went back to AT&T and my iPhone and I will be an iPhoner for life!!
I can't believe I ever switched, but lesson learned for sure!

I went from being with Blackberry for years and then a brief time with a Droid phone. I have been tempted a little by the new Blackberry phones only because sometimes I do miss the physical keyboard. I don't think I could ever switch back though. When I make a list of positives and negatives for each phone it is not even close. My iPhone 4 wins every time. It just works and with IOS 5 coming out soon it will be that much better.

I went from years of using Blackberry's to giving the iPhone 4 a try. I loved it but I thought I would give Android a try being it was being pushed so hard.
I had the Galaxy S and then the Moto Atrix as well as an ASUS tablet. Android and custom roms are fun to mess with, but once that gets boring you are left with a laggy, buggy os. Sure, the hardware is the "latest and greatest", but it really doesn't matter when the OS running on it is buggy and loaded with bloat.
I am now back to iPhone 4 (running a certain beta OS which shall remain unnamed) and I couldn't be happier. All I am going to say is that if you like your iPhone and iOS, you are REALLY going to be happy come September.

Well I just switched back from a HTC Inpsire. It was a great phone and android is a pretty decent OS as far as customizing it the way you see fit. However, the speaker was horrible GPS was buggy as all hell and I had a few other problems as well. Needless to say customer service for AT&T is horrible so I switched back to my iPhone 4. I'm going to miss the huge screen for reading and watching videos but, it feels so good to have a phone that works! And when my iPhone has a problem I just head to the Apple store for customer service! From now on it's iPhones for me!!!!
