    Just joined tipb. Switched to the 3GS the day it came out from a Verizon Palm Treo 700p. It's nice to be using a modern phone again.

    I had a Verizon XV6900 which is basically a Verizon branded HTC Touch. Before that I had a Treo 700w which I hated at the time but after using the touch for a year I liked it much more. Had a treo 600 before that. I miss my hardware keyboard, but the iphone keyboard is the best on screen keyboard between the touch and iphone.

    I had a Verizon Blackberry Pearl. I love the iPhone, not thrilled about AT&T.

    Got my iPhone 3GS 32GB on release day. I got an iPod Touch a few months before that so that I could try out the OS/GUI and see if I would be happy with it before switching from my low-cost Sprint SERO plan to AT&T. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, and I can't remember the exact order of some of these, but here goes...

    Palm OS:
    Treo 700p (Sprint)
    Treo 650 (Sprint)
    Treo 600 (Sprint)
    Treo 300 (Sprint)
    Samsung SPH-i300 (Sprint)
    Kyocera 6035 (Verizon) - returned it within 30 days (color standalone Palm OS PDAs were out, so it was too hard to switch back to B&W)

    Google Android:
    HTC Touch (Sprint) w/Google Android build (not bad)

    Windows Mobile:
    HTC Touch (Sprint)
    HTC Mogul (Sprint) - returned it within 30 days
    HTC 6700 (Sprint) - returned it within 30 days

    Symbian S60:
    Nokia N-Gage (T-Mobile pay-as-you-go)

    Non-smartphones:
    Sony-Ericsson T608 (Sprint) - hoped to get by with tethering via Bluetooth to my Tapwave Zodiac
    Motorola StarTac (Verizon)

    Most of my experience has been with Palm OS. Despite trying several times, I was never happy with Windows Mobile. I liked the idea of the Danger hiptop/Sidekick, but T-Mobile service wasn't good in my area, and I didn't like the closed app situation with them, so I never tried that out. I also never tried the Blackberry.

    I'll post more details about my thoughts about the Palm OS, webOS, and iPhone OS/GUI in a separate thread, but I'll just say briefly that there's a lot of usability/efficiency things I like about the classic Palm OS, but webOS is a whole new thing by a different team that wasn't really a part of the "zen of Palm" in the past. Hawkins is gone now and the new team appears to be a bunch of ex-Apple people who created the Palm pre as an iPhone-clone that tried to one-up the iPhone. It succeeds in some ways, falls short in several others, and doesn't respect the good qualities of the old Palm OS, so I look at the Palm of today as a whole new company, for better and worse.

    Perhaps the biggest reason for me going with the iPhone is the wealth of apps available. It's a modern OS/GUI with a ton of apps. If Palm and Google are successful (and I hope they both are), there should be some great choices available in the next year.

    Palm Treo 700 with Windows OS on AT & T. I have had my iPhone 3G S for 5 days now with no regrets. Changing info over and converting programs from Windows OS to iPhone OS has been without a single issue. I have absolutely no regrets!

    I had a Motorola Razr before I switched to a 2G and then 3G. Ideally, I'd like the 3GS as it has video and voice control but I can wait until next year for that. At the moment, I don't see myself using another make of handset as the iPhone does so much for me.
