Patience with the noob, all. I've been a relatively happy owner of the iPhone 3GS for a year or so, but am losing my patience with the proprietary aspect of the device. Moving music from my computer to the phone is is a PITA. iTunes slows my computer to a crawl, and frankly, even as an MCSE and ex-techie--I can't quite figure out how to use the iTunes software as a whole. I'm considering a different platform. Droid comes to mind, and I'm at the end of my AT&T store contract, so pretty much any Droid-based phone would be $200 at most, with some being free, and many being 50 or 99 bucks. The move from iPhone to Android would be mostly to rid myself of iTunes. The most important aspects follow: 1. I'd want a phone to simply show up in My Computer in Windows. iPhone doesn't! 2. I'd like a camera in the front and back. 3. I'd like to be sure that the mp3 jack is standard on any phone I'd be looking at (in other words, would the same cable from my iPhone fit in to my auto's mp3 jack. . . ) 4. I'd like it if more than 80% of the apps I run are compatible with Droid based phones. 5. Since I'd be moving from 3G (bandwidth) to a 4G network, should I expect the monthly charges to differ greatly? Right now I have unlimited everything from AT&T, but I'm hearing that true 4G will not be unlimited, but tiered pricing. I'd have no issue with that, as I don't use more than a few hundred megabytes/month. Should I expect to pay a lot more for a 4G phone as far as monthly charges go? 6. Finally, and most importantly, I'd like to be able to move music and pictures from phone to computer, and computer to phone using the standard file xfer scenario (my computer) just as if it were a thumb drive or portable hard disk drive. Thanks for the answers, everyone!! If the answers to my questions suit my needs, any suggestions on phones? I've always been a fan of Motorolas, but the guy at the AT&T store has the opinion that Motorola dropped the ball when it comes to newer smartphones. Thanks again!! Hope to hear a wide variety of answers. I love different opinions, and always consider 100 answers better than 1.
