I have a Blackberry on Verizon service. I have had various software problems with synching the BB on my Macbook Pro. However, for now it is finally synching OK (though the synching instructions are rather non-intuitive). I of course would like for iPhone to be available on VZ, but so far no go. I am now taking a semi-serious look at the Android phones. I do not use Gmail for my principal messages but rather Apple Mail and Address Book, with iCal for calendar. Would I be making a mistake to get an Android-driven phone?
