    Welcome to the board.

    First of all, the bionic is a great phone and it is worth the money you spent on it. Second, what problems are you experiencing with it? Hard to help someone who won't share the problem they're having :p

    Welcome to the forums. I've not had any of those issues but there is an update coming soon. Hang in there and if it doesn't work out maybe Verizon would be willing to get you a different phone. Good luck!

    Wow, I'm not sure, my personal preference is android. The rep I bought my bionic off of had an iphone and he showed it to me, I wasn't too impressed. No back button or menu button and all apps are on the homescreen. I don't think I could ever get used to that after having a DROID.

    I agree on pretty much all fronts with rck. The things I do not like about ios he mentioned. I have never owned an iphone but having played with them on numeroius occasions, via friends or in the stores, I was never very impressed.

    Having all those apps and no widgets. Love the widgets on Android, wouldn't be surprised if we see something like that on iOS5....
