    Just a question out of curiosity: on Android, do you ever have to reformat your SD card? On my Blackberry that was a semi-frequent occurrence, so I'm just curious as I feel it was a BlackBerry issue and not a SD card issue.
    I had this problem with my droids. I actually had to re-format a couple times. but the worst part was I actually ended up with an "unsupported file system" "unreadable sd card" I actually couldn't reformat my SD card. I had this happen on Samsung Fascinate, a droid pro and a droid X. happened to a 32 gb card and 2 16 gb cards. talk about frustrating. loosing a ton of pictures music and all kind of stuff killed me. one of the reasons I jumped at the chance of getting the iPhone.

    sorry that's my 0.02.

    Always a good idea to backup everything.

    I've had a couple WM phones (back in the day) and a couple BB's. Never needed to reformat... guess I was lucky?

    I've heard of people having this issue, but I've never had it. I do backup my SD card to my computer (which is easy - all you do is plug it in and copy and paste into a new folder) because we all know that no matter the electronics - even APPLE haha - can fail from time to time. But I've still not had this problem with needing to reformat the SD card. My Droid X has EASILY been the most reliable smartphone I've ever had.

    But what exactly would you need to back up? If your phone dies you can just swap out the SD card and BAM! EVERYTHING is back. (or if you need a new phone just enter your gmail and all your stuff comes back with out the need to restore for an hour and a half.
    .
    That is not the case. I had a Original Droid that I rooted and reset a few times and the only apps that came back were the ones that I paid for. All the free apps I had to find and remember what they were. I know that 2.2 had the ability to move apps to the sd card but that was not possible when I switched to the Fascinate.

    As for the battery life, the Fascinate was excellent and the Droid would sometimes lose a full charge in a half an hour for no reason. I plugged it back in and after a full charge it would be good again.

    Lol, reminds me of people who download themes or customize their phone to make it look like the lock and/or home screen of another device.
    I do this...

    Don't be fooled because once you experience the real deal, you probably won't ever want to go back. Can't believe I struggled between pros and cons of iPhone4 vs. Thunderbolt.

    I have been thinking the same thing. I have been taking some "comments" from my Android faithful friends. They can't believe I bought an iPhone. I always respond with "I can't believe I almost didn't buy an iPhone."

    Yup, don't know what I was thinking! I guess it's one of those things that you can't really quantify and therefore things look good on paper or specs, but the hands on experience is what truly counts. Can't completely bag on Android since there are some things to like about it, but not enough to call it a superior device. We do have to thank Android, too, for pushing the competition with Apple to get better software and hardware quickly!

    P. S. What is up with these "spam" posts?!

    I really like both platforms and have basically come to the conclusion that I need a combo of Android and iOS. I love the seamless uniformity of iOS and how it is so polished, not to mention the fact that, as phones go, it's sexy as hell. However, I love the customization and notifications on Android. I really like not having Steve tell me what to do. If iPhone5 has a few changes, I'll probably jump ship to check it out (assuming it comes to VZW). One of my other issues is having to purchase some apps again for an iPhone when I already bought them for Android. I picked up MLB At-Bat just a couple weeks ago, and if I switch now, I have to pay another 15 bucks, which really sucks.

    I also wanna know what the hell is up with the damn spam. I've never seen so much on a forum before.

    Spam is almost impossible to stop. Just report it and we'll eventually get to it. Sometimes real quick
