    I was watching Who Wants to be a Millionaire? the other week, and that exact idea popped into my head when someone used their phone-a-friend lifeline, and they mentioned AT&T. :icon_ banana:

    :icon_eek: I went to sleep on this thread, i wake up 8 hrs later and yall still going hard....I have to admit i tapped out at around 1 lol

    Yes google and android is on a learning curve but they are learning quick. They will listen to the people. Look at the new delopments that has taken place so far as a result of the complaints. I can almost guarentee that if enough people complain and write google about the issue they will correct it.
    Apple: people are still complaining about the apple care it is the worse insurance you can get. The droid and the iphone cost about the same....hell the att blackberries and the iphones cost about the same. And if you have an issue you can take it to the store or they will fedex you a new phone (battery) with no problems.
    With apple you have to spend an hour answering trivia question about what you do with you phone, have to have $600 locked on you credit card to get a broke refurbished phone. I have called apple care on that countless of times and they do not seem to mind the inconvience even if they are getting calls on that constantly.
    If you have an apple store i guess it is suppose to be better but they do not have enough apple stores around or one in my area so I have not been able to use one.
    I was apple fanboy and a broke iphone (from factory) was the back of the hand knocking some sense into me.....glad it happen before I bought that macbook pro (refurbished one at that) I figure if i have to go through all that over a $600 phone......
    I seen how reluctant apple is to change; nope I rather put my stock into a growing android market that has no problem evolving.

    Another thing about the apps. The iphone does have a lot of nice pretty looking apps. Well thats because the apple marketplace has been around for a while. And people have been working on that a lot more than androids. I do expect to see nice looking 3d games, and other good looking apps soon. Just let people get a chance to program for android. The phone does have the hardware for it. Lets leave the software people to expose it!.. =)

    They also have a lot of repeat and useless apps. Besides like I said in a previous post, that is all you can do with you phone is play with apps. And alot of the apps, especially banking apps, just take you to a website. Go to apple.com and go to app area from your computer or droid, and see how many of the "apps" you can play with.
    I was watching a youtube clip of them comparing the nexus to the :iphone:. I looked at that after playing with the droid and coming off the icloud, and I realized how boring the phone looked. You have to have 100,000 apps to keep it in you hand.
    With the droid I may visit the app store (market) once every three days, The iphone I was always on the app store. To each his own but i rather not be tht bored.

    The AT&T comercials ARE humorous, but I think the VZW ones just blow you away, especially the ones that aired over the holidays.

    I literally LOL when I first saw the Santas elf assembly line one. AT&T's map went into the naughty persons box. Or the reindeer one with Blitzen having the wrong map.

    Those are just too damn funny.
