    Really man no one can tell you what YOU need. Everyone likes to do things a little different and has different systems that work for them. You need to decide on the features, abilities, and software that is important to YOU for your phone.

    If you want to never have to worry about micromanaging and doing work to work your phone I would say you should get the iPhone. If you like to customize down to the font size and like to really be involved in your phone you might consider Android.

    I don't know of any sites that compare cell phone radios off hand. I like to think the engineers did their jobs in designing any phone and it will work. You can do a test yourself if you have had a number of phones and just drive around to places you frequent and see if they get varrying signal levels.

    Youtube videos might be what you have to compare. Make sure they aren't death gripping the iP4 in those videos.

    That's a misguided view of the i4. You have no idea of where it was located, what conditions the phone was under and the like. Buy it, try it and then figure it out from there. You have 14 days to figure it out.

    Tough to judge by bars, etc. My iPhone on T-Mob has MUCH MUCH better reception than the BB it replaced. That's not the generally accepted noise on these two. I've not had the dropped calls on the iPhone that I did on the BB either.

    Once you are into smart phones, you need to look at them as all purpose devices rather than just phones. What will you wish to do with yours? Which does it better? Frex, for me, the iPhone 4 was the run away best phone due to the retina display. I probably spend the most time with the phone in my hand reading books. So it was an easy for me.

    If you, frex, just have to have Flash, then you gotta go Android. So it's in you to decide what do you need? What is most important to YOU?

    It all depends on what you use it for. I had the torch but hated that you couldn't easily load music on and off since I usually use my phone as a music player. It all depends
