I love the verizon service but hated their phones. A lot of my friends have the iphone and it is an incredible phone. I told myself when my 2 year contract was done I was gone from verizon. So I hear about the droid and get mildly interested. See it in person and see that it's actually amazing. In fact I will go as far and say that the phone is as good as the iphone, the only drawback being the iphones app selection is 100x better, but that should change in the coming months. So after 1.5 months of comparing the phones I picked it up and love it, and best of all I still have the awesome verizon network.
