Well I give in...
Now that I don't have to leave my awesome plan with Sprint I can jump ship to the iPhone from Android. I currently have the EVO 3D. Before that I had the EVO 4G, Palm Pre, then a series of Windows phones from the Touch Pro, Mogul, to the old brick of a Nextel i930. Anyone had experience with these phones and anything you think I might miss in the iPhone and perhaps features from my previous phones I will get back?

I too have had several devices started with an HTC apache, HTC mogul, HTC diamond, HTC touch pro, HTC touch pro 2, palm pre, HTC evo, HTC evo 3D. I switched to AT&T due to sprint charging me for 2 HTC evo 3D ordered through Austin to ohio and I live in Oklahoma. They didn't want to drop the charges.
Anyway the first thing you will miss is the widgets and the open source.
You will learn to do without widgets and for anything else there is an app.
One huge thing I missed was notifications and ability to set custom tones but those have been addressed with iOS5. the battery life is waaaay better than any android or windows mobile device. And you won't need to root your phone to install a custom Tom to make it work well the iOS 5 just works! Now you can jailbreak and get a lot more but all in all iPhone is way better
Make the jump an welcome aboard!

I, too, didn't want to leave sprint because I loved my plan also, I just had this feeling that one day the iPhone would come to sprint, it was just a matter of time. I had the Blackberry 851i, the Sanyo Katana, Blackberry 830 curve, Sanyo Incognito, a couple of Motorola models I can't remember their model numbers, it been that long ago. My present phone, the HTC Evo 4g. This will be my first iPhone and I can't wait to get it, besides, if I don't, my Mac computer be very upset with me.( some kind of family thing) There's one thing you should do if you're not use to the iPhone's features, learn all you can about it, There are good books on it, if you have family members or the good people on this website, just make sure you do your homework and you'll be well prepared when your iPhone arrives, just my two cents worth.

It's kind of funny-- I live in Japan, and i got my iPhone here back in '09 with the 3GS. My carrier in the States has been Sprint though since 1997-- I even worked as a phone tech back in my college days. It'd be nice to be able to use my old plan on the 4s when I come back home, but I don't think you can get the CDMA carriers to just turn on an ESN without it first being in their system somehow... Or am a wrong?

I've also had several devices and came from the Pre to the EVO 4g and now I'm seriously thinking about the 4s. To be honest, the EVO 4g has been one of the best phones I've owned, it really has not given me any problems. But, I'm curious about trying the 4s, besides, it will go along great with my Mac book and my iPad 2, lol..

I am by no means an Android hater, in fact I love and respect what Android has done for the mobile phone community in creating a more competitive atmosphere. But, for me, the iPhone is better than anything they can come up with at the moment.
