    Hello to everyone, just figured id tell you a few things about me, Im 18 from a small town in WV called lenore, I am currently an iPhone 3g owner as of 11/17 i should have a Droid A855 in my hands, I ordered my phone online from verizon due to the fact that it was cheaper on purchase instead of having to wait for the $100 MIR. I was going to purchase my phone from Walmart seeing that it was $188 dollars on a 2yr but for some reason they couldnt get my information to go through the computer. Before anyone jumps the gun on me and says its in my parents name or i dont pay my bills i will tell you ahead of time that I do in which pay my bills and both of my phone contracts are in my name. I chose the droid and verizon because of service from att sucks around my house. I have to drive almost 20miles to get service or to the top of the strip mines. I wont lie. I love my iphone but hate att if i could go back to the beginning of this year i would have just got a razr from verizon and just upgraded. Why apple didnt pick a better service provider i am clueless of. But i do hope you welcome me to the site and that i do like my new A855.

    Great to have you here Dhall.

    The iPhone is a great phone no doubt. When you get the Droid it will take some adjusting because you are going to have to learn a whole new OS but hopefully with the help of these forums the transition will be smooth for you.

    Enjoy your stay and welcome..

    Ive got a question, For people who had dropped your AT&T Contract, Did you lose the deposit you posted or did you get that back, that is if you rightfully paid the contract off?

    Welcome :)

    Apple actually talked with Verizon about the iPhone first, and Verizon opted not to make a contract with them for some reason. Apple then went to AT&T and they struck up a deal.

    I moved from AT&T and I am not getting the deposit back, and I'm paying the early termination fee ($175 - (5$ * (number of months into contract)) = $100 for me.

    I hope the Droid makes your life easier, gives you better service, and fulfills your need as a phone and as a smart device. We're here if you need anything!

    ouch! i figured the 100$ rebate was enough to offset the termination fee, so I jumped on it.

    What sucks the most is that AT&T wanted a $500 deposit from me in which i paid. I think i may just pay my bill up until feb. so i can get it back.
