I am a techno-granny and am a died in the wool Apple user. I live in Canada but spend several months a year in the US. As I am only able to use Verizon I was very disappointed not to be able to use an iPhone. I picked up a Motorola Droid Global from Costco and bought a plan including unlimited internet. Have had the phone for 2 days now and I must say that I LOVE it and I think that it can do a lot more than than the iPhone. Looking forward to learning about this wonderful piece of gadgetry.
