    I am currently a BB Tour user and when I made up my mind based on the poor performance and showing by RIM at this years CES in Vegas and lack of phones coming out and the fact that I have always wanted an iphone anyway I also wrestlted with the Motorola Bionic but iphone has won out and I have already been into itunes into the app store downloading all the good productive apps I can find for free for work as well as personal just sitting in my itunes app section waiting to bring my new iphone home to do the first sync.

    I go on every day and add another app or two and even have my case chosen and screen protectors....lol Hey if you are going to do it, might as well be prepared right?

    Anytime I can help....

    I have these now and will concentrate on more apps to use for work. All the apps I listed for you are free and I am sure I am goingto have to pay for some but most of the apps are very affordable and I can justify paying for them.

    I want everything in place when I go to my local store to buy so I can walk in, have them transfer my contacts in the store, set up my email and pretty much thats it.

    I also went to Apple.com BTW and downloaded the full PDF users guide for the iphone 4 so when I do this at the store I can go home,sync the phone in itunes and start playing with it to set it up to my liking and have the apps i want ready to install.

    As you can see I have been planning this for some time...

    Just my opnion but yes the Boinic has great specs and I'm sure it will be a very good device. It looks like its going to have the best of the best in it. I just feel like android is sluggish and has these little bugs that never go away. That's reason why I left Blackberry to get away from all the little bugs.
    That's why I am bailing on BlackBerry, too. I just can't take that they release phones that have these huge issues (items missing from menus, random restarts, etc.)

    And I sincerely hope Apple never makes the screen bigger... am I the only person who still wants their phone to fit in their pocket? I'm just over 5 feet tall, and these Droids will NEVER get in my pockets...

    Yeah pretty much all I will use is facebook, maps and espn. Maybe some angry birds lol. I'm sure I will download more apps later but for now those will be fine

    For me, the decision is easy since I live in an area that does not have LTE coverage. Because of this, I will definitely be going for the iPhone as I do not want to pay for something that I cannot have access to. I'll be paying full retail, but I have 2 lines that will be eligible for upgrades in May and July so if anything better comes out in the near future, I can upgrade at a cheaper cost.

    I am the same way going to pay full retail I have another line due for an upgrade in july so if anything comes out then I can upgrade but I think the iphone will hold me over for atleast a year

    The Bionic looks great but being a LTE phone I'm doubting its battery.. On the other hand its known that the iPhone 4 has awesome battery life and furthermore in my opinion the best out of any smartphone currently available. Of course battery is only one component of the many you should consider but its a very important one as a phone with a terrible battery is essentially just a fancy paper weight.

    What do you wear, girl jeans? my EVO fits in my pocket just fine and I still have a lot of room.

    Once you go big, its very hard to go back.

    I agree battery life is one of the main deciding factors for me especially after having a droid incredible where battery life was awful

    Unless you wear super tight jeans a 4 inch screen even 4.3 such as the EVO and Droid X fit easily in a pocket. I think apple needs to make a 4 inch screen retina display that would be perfect

    I don't even have LTE or WiMax in my area and won't till after 2012, so why pay for something I'm not getting. I'm at 5+Mbps on AT&T 3g anyways.... The Miami Heat have approved this message.

    I have wimax hspa+ but no lte yet if Verizon rolls out lte as fast as sprint rolled out wimax in my area I should have lte by fall. I don't want to pay extra for lte but I would rather pay the extra amount than get lte in my area and be stuck with 3g . I have a hard decision

    Ordinarily this would be a hard choice for me as well between these 2 phones and even add in the mix the new HTC Thunderbolt(That is whatthe new Incredible is being called now) but I have been waiting for an iphone for some time and have even gone as far as spent alot of time on itunes in the app store choosing some very good productivity apps to make my phone first and foremost a good business phone(All the naysayers say that you can't do this like a BB) but trust me I have found plenty of good apps and then the last I would say 25-30% of the phone will be apps that I can enjoy even at work but mainly outside of work and believe me none will consist of games(OK maybe one or two... but anyway that is my game plan.

    You realize that it is cheaper to add an iPhone as another line (on a family plan) and activate the phone on your line, then it is to pay full price?

    $30x24=$720 and that's just for data. Am I missing something here or would you be better off buying the phone?

    I'm thinking the Droid Bionic looks really good on paper but that's as far as it goes. It still will have motorola's half-baked motoblur and will be running probably 2 android versions behind at launch the rate google is going with updates lately. iPhone 4 may be outdated as far as most cell phone's now are concerned but it's not just any smartphone and will last years longer than the Droid Bionic will 4G or not.

    I wont trust anything my motorolla. I had an i9 flip phone (really nice. Glossy smoke color, mocked the Razr in terms of design. High res screen) it was a nice phone till the battery gave me issues. It got hot and started to smoke. I could see some orange glowing from the phone so I threw it down on the floor to eject the battery since it was too hot to touch. I conteacted Boost mobile, they won't help me, and I contracted motrolla and they gave me some BS responce. I just went and got a cheep $29.99 phone from Radio shack before getting the BB 8330 a week later and then the EVO three months later in November.

    so iPhone > Bionic

    I'm in the same boat- Droid user looking for another phone.

    I'm gonna leave the Android OS for now
    -I love the Android OS features and the google apps (way better than the iOS versions). But I love the selection of 3rd party apps even more. Android has improved, but not quickly enough. Maybe in another yr or two Android will have caught up

    -I like CDMA. LTE is not fully deployed yet and it's gonna cost more. Not a good value yet for me. I'm sticking with CDMA. Unless Verizon is too cocky and they run into problems on their CDMA network. I can't think of an Android phone running on CDMA that is coming out in the first 1/2 of the year. It's like they all switched to LTE.

    -Personally, I still like the iOS/iPhone platform. Don't get me wrong, Android is a good platform as well, but it's a personal preference.

    If you are worried about a newer phone coming out ... don't ever upgrade your phone. New phones are ALWAYS coming out.
