    Yep, a straight up even trade. They were both about the same money value on eBay. The iPhone 4 was twice the value so I couldn't find someone to to that.

    But you can only, in reality, use one at a time! Unless you're really good! lol.

    Oh yeah, I forgot the rich part, which I am not either. If my stupid Mega Millions or Powerball numbers came in one of these days that would be a different story. However, I stil think I'd only use 1 phone at a time. I would probably own more than one, just so I could switch em up should I choose to do so! lol, Ah the dreams of winning the lotto!

    I am constantly made fun of because of the number of phones I have. They're everywhere. I couldn't even justify another phone right now, which is why I bought the Galaxy Tab...instead of an Android phone.

    But I've still got my eye on the LG Optimus 3D. One of the things I like about being with a GSM carrier is the ability to switch phones around at a whim.

    That LG looks sweet. The new shiney phones are getting more and more advanced with better screens. The only downfall, imho, is Android. I despise Android. With a passion.

    I keep trying Android, and in some cases, within a day, switch back to iOS. It's nuts. Android is cool in some ways, but I always come "Home". It's tough to abandon the Apple ecosystem.

    I'll tell ya one thing - I will never put up with anyone downing iTunes again after spending a week with the various Android stores. They are awful! That's Marketplace and Amazon.

    The os, itself, still shows a lot of promise and I'm not finding too much there that I really dislike.

    I haven't had an awful experience...granted, the quality of apps on Android leaves something to be desired, and I have found the Market to be a bit chaotic, but there's lots of innovation there. For instance, the ability to pick an app from the Market webpage and have it downloaded to one or more Android devices OTA is brilliant. I don't like that you have to select one app at a time, on the device, each device, to have it auto-update in future.

    Having said all that--I don't like that I have to worry about managing memory, worry about sideloading apps (which only a handfull, in my experience, are able to load onto the SD card), and have to spend so much time worrying about app management. Honestly, I like that iOS devices have ONE chunk of memory, and we can choose to fill it up as we see fit, and it all just is stored in one place. Smart.

    WP7 itself is very nice, HOWEVER... The Samsung Focus was cheap imho. And the apps SUCK donkey balls. I'm talking awful. Pathetic.

    The hardware was what kept me away from trying WP7.. nothing with a seemingly quality build.

    Well the new HTC HD7 looks nice, but still it comes down to the apps. Crappy apps is not going to get you anywhere. Out of all the apps I collected over a two month period, I had 2 maybe 3 that were very good. The games are awful. None of the Twitter clients were worth anything. They were all slow. I think an overall bad ecosystem there for WP7.
