    Just ditched the iPhone and AT&T.

    Hi folks!

    After using the iPhone for over a year, I'm a proud owner of a Motorola Droid.....and I have to say that it kicks the iPhone's butt in every conceivable way.

    I also like the fact that I now have 3G coverage where I never had it before.

    Thanks Corina.

    You know...it kinda sucked to have to pay the early termination fee with AT&T, but I suppose I'd finally had enough of the dropped calls, lack of 3G coverage, and dysfunctionality of the iPhone.

    It was revolutionary when it first came out, but Apple has sat on its laurels and allowed other devices and manufacturers to pass them by.

    And I really don't know if AT&T's 3G network is actually faster or not....but I do know that I have 3G coverage with Verizon where I never had it before (like here at home), and that a "slower" 3G network is light years better than the fastest "Edge" network.

    It doesn't do much good to have a "faster" network if you can't access it.

    I just ran a speedtest with my Droid and iPhone. Verizon's 3G network clocked in at 2 mbps.....the Edge at 76 kbps.

    I know what you mean about AT&T. I spent over ten years with them (and their precursors). I've now got 3g in areas I've never had it before. I could not be happier with the service and the Droid.

    Welcome aboard.

    Same here for coverage, wish I waited a bit for cost, but really wasn't an issue.

    I forgot to mention in my earlier post that I thought my hacked Palm 750 and AT&T were both great. Turns out I was wrong on both accounts!! The Droid and Verizon (for the areas in which I travel) blows away Palm and AT&T.
