    Saw it on Fox News this AM, Apple is going to start producing iPhones with CDMA chips for Verizon. When that happens, this may make for a good poll (moderators, hint hint)...

    How many would ditch their Droid for an iPhone with Verizon?

    Considering I bought the Droid for an iPhone-like experience but hated AT&T's coverage, and for me Verizon's superior cell coverage trumps the need to run multiple apps at one time (the biggest advantage IMO of a Droid over an iPhone other than Google Nav (which might just be available on a 4th gen iPhone)), I think I might just have to get an iPhone.

    What about y'all?

    No iPhone for me ever. I'm done with Apple products after my first ipod never got a software update.

    i was going to wait it out before i bought the droid but both phones have their ups and downs. personally i think i would ditch the droid but not anytime soon. if apple manages to change the interface a bit and make it customizable, then we can talk. lol

    This was basically discussed in another thread. But the answer was pretty much an overwhelming "HECK NO!!!".

    My iPhone envy disappeared around three months ago when I first learned of the Droid.

    I think I'll believe it when I see it. Until then I say no iPhone for Verizon.

    This is probably what they were eluding to ...

    No thank you. I don't care for Apple products as a whole.
