    I just pre ordered the iphone 4.
    Im not really excited because i know it does not match up to my rooted, overclocked d1 at all.
    Im planing on having this phone for 2 months tops! If i cant handle the limits it will put on me.
    Then prob selling it on ebay and go back to android :)

    anyone else pre order?

    Yes, for the other half.

    Do you really need a poll like this to determine what the trend is going to be on a site named DroidForums.net? :icon_rolleyes:

    I have a iPhone as an mp3 player and I hated the thing. It was only a 3g, but I figure I would get the same experience as I did just with the phone part. I am not a fan of the OS, but I can see why people like it, it's just not for me.

    I would not get one. I read a review by someone in WSJ today and he said the phone on Verizon is better than the at&t system (better carrier), but that the downloads on the at&t system were better. Also, the Verizon iPhone won't work overseas (except in limited areas, Hong Kong is one of them, but phone only, no data), but the at&t iPhone will work overseas, (albeit with humongous roaming charges). (Of course, I don't go overseas, so that doesn't matter to me, but to some business people it would matter.)

    I would be eligible for the iPhone (I checked online), but I just like my Droid X dancedroid . I'm not really big on Apple anyway.

    So I am firmly in the "Not Gonna Get One" Camp.

    You have to return it within 2 weeks. You can't sell CDMA phones, they will only work on Verizon. There will be no unlock because the way it's done is illegal. You can only sell the GSM version of the phone. (ATT, TMOBILE)

    I'm not trying to start a fuss, by why would you order it, when they're going to release a new model in July?

    I know this too but my wife wanted it and ordered it. What's not reasonable to you doesn't its not reasonable to someone else. So you are right don't make a fuss.

    Shipped already for delivery on the 7th.

    That's a network issue, not a device issue. You're already using Verizon so that's an odd reason to cite.

    Source? I've yet to see anything that truly indicates to me that there will be a VZW iPhone 5 (with LTE which would actually make me wait) in July except for Apple's current iPhone release schedule. I don't make purchase decisions based on rumors -- much less rumors that don't even have leaks to provide at least some sort of support for the rumor. Obviously, YMMV.

    The rumors seem to indicate that the GSM and CDMA models will be merged but that LTE isn't likely. Apple may surprise us with some significant updates but, if their past is any indicator, this is likely to be a minor update. In any case, the rumors aren't enough to sway me. Again, YMMV.

    No, you can sell CDMA phones. CDMA phones work on more than just Verizon as Verizon isn't the only CDMA carrier. What you're thinking of is that Verizon devices won't work on other carriers unless flashed (if possible, depending on the specific device) and vice-versa. That, as well as some carriers not allowing ESN's from other carriers on their network.

    And, as for unlocking, it's not possible because unlocking isn't relevant to CDMA (or CDMA/GSM hybrid) devices. There's no subsidy/network lock to remove.
