    like what?
    i'm pretty sure that android has native multitasking while apple needs a program to do it. there something iphone cant do. also i have flash camera and adobe flash. iphone doesnt have that. im pretty sure you cant change the battery either. im also pretty sure that the iphone doenst have endless storage, sd cards. i also know that iphones cant open RAR files, but my droid can. thats talking rooted to jailbroken phone.
    now if you talk non root or jailbroken.. android can do wayyyy more things out of the box.

    You can run it with an emulator. I run Windows XP on my Mac inside OSX for different stuff. Both OS's running at the same time and working great.

    PS- Doesnt really matter....I was simply trying to discuss some things as I own and like both....

    But appearantly (as I should have known) everyone on here is an Android fanboy and with that, close-minded and biased. If people would actually read my posts instead of just jumping in to say stupid crap, they would see that.

    I wasnt talking up the iphone or bashing the droid...I was talking about good and bad points to both devices.

    Ya'll have fun...I used to think this forum was made up of some fairly laid-back, sensible people....but it seems its getting like most the rest now with just a bunch of ignorant kids wanting to bash anyone that has different beliefs than their own.

    Could be, or it could be that your phone is broken in some way. Although I've had apps crash on my Droid I've never had one bring the rest of the system down with it. Maybe I've just been lucky.

    You mean just like virtually everything else for sale in the U.S.?

    It's really very simple. With freedom comes risk and with flexibility comes complexity. Apple already had one end of the spectrum locked up and not even Google was going to beat them at their game so Google went in pretty much the opposite direction, (in a way, replaying the PC vs. Mac Battle). Which is better? Well, I've been using Linux for 15+ years and rooted my Droid right away. Heck I've even got a Zaurus 6K so the decision was pretty clear for me. That said I can certainly understand why someone would want the more confined but also more polished IPhone. It's a nice piece of geear and especially shines if you also have a Macbook and like Itunes. Really though I'm just happy that we have such good choices today. For years the best we had were Wince and Palm both of which frankly sucked.

    honestly, i haven't had any problems with any apps messing up my phone. I prob have tried out about 40 different apps. Some are awesome and some are just plain horrible. If you look at the ratings and user comments, usually someone has already dled it and reviewed it. But I haven't really had any problems myself.

    One thing I will say... I have an iPod Touch, and the apple apps are def better than the android apps. But thats just because the iTunes apps have been around for years and the Android apps have been around for months. In time this will even out.

    Actually Android has been around for years not months.. Just because nobody has heard of it til it came to Verizon doesnt mean its new. I think alot of people that prefer the Iphone over Android dont really know anything about Android.

    the only real prob ive had with my phone is that EVERY time i boot it up or connect it via usb to my pc it will give me a message that the sd card could not be detected and some apps cant run normally...does anybody know if this could be cuz of 2.1 or just an app i might have?? srry didnt mean to steal the thread topic but its been bothering me and i dont know the cause. i use to have trouble removing my sd card and putting it back in so i hope i didnt screw it up..

    Well, Is it in fact getting mounted? Can you see the contents of your /sdcard folder with your favourite file manager/terminal after boot up and when you're NOT plugged into your PC?

    I don't know if this has already been said or not.

    I had the same problem as you - until I wised up and did more research and experimentation. I had to do two system wipes because my phone wouldn't load any processes after being powered off and back on. However, it wasn't the applications that were causing the problem... it was the memory.

    I've had no such problem with 2.1, but when 1.5 was out, you had to make sure that 40-50 mb of space was left on the phone's hard drive. If there wasn't 40-50 mb of available space, the android OS couldn't load vital features in the background, since free hard drive space was utilized by the OS. This became a problem because it limited the amount of apps you could download before your phone would become useless (unable to receive any signals).

    Maybe this was your problem. Maybe it wasn't. I just thought I'd throw it out there though. It may be necessary to watch how much space your apps are taking up.
