I am about to switch back to Verizon from ATT, and I plan to get the DroidX phone (probably thru Best Buy). My wife and I had to leave Verizon a couple years ago due to no coverage at our new place, but now we have signal - so we are glad to be switching back.
I have used smart phones for a while - mainly to be able to sync up my calendar at work. Have not used GPS, email, or internet access.
This will be our first step into the "data package", so I may be asking lots of questions as we stumble along.
My wife has not decided on a phone yet. She will probably end up with a smart phone, but does not need a lot of bells and whistles. A good phone with GPS, camera and easy to use menus is important to her. Any suggestions?
