    I can't believe she just switched from the D1 to the iPhone....She could have upgraded to any of the VZW 4G Androids, but she got duped by the CSR at the VZW store where she lives...
    Seems that the deciding factor was Siri!!..What!!!...
    I was trying to let her know that Andorid has their own versions of Siri, and that no 4G is a huge negative about the iPhone...but before I could even get her to test the Android versions of Siri, the guy at the store duped her into thinking that Siri was a spectacular one-of-a-kind thing!...She just called me less than an hour ago with the bad news. I'm gonna do my dammest to show her my SpeakToIt app which outshines Siri, and can be launched by long-pressing the soft search key...I'm gonna make her regret getting the IPos and possibly get her to return it before the 15 day return policy when she comes to visit tomorrow...lol

    Time to kick her out of the house. There's a new rule in the house. No iPhones are to be owned by ANY member of the family. No Android, no home :)

    My girlfriend is getting an iPhone for her upgrade. She could care less about 4G. She currently has a Fascinate and practically hates it.

    I didn't mind her getting an iPhone if that's what she liked, but to tell me that Siri was why was hard to accept...I mean my SpeakToIt app does exactly the same thing...'plus' it can pull up Google maps, Navigation, and who knows what else that the iPhone Siri cannot...

    And 4g is not an issue for those that don't use or need fast Web flow for work or play, but my daughter would be using it for her work from time to time...

    My gf ended up getting an iPhone after her experience with a t-bolt which was less then lackluster. But her, along with several others I know who have one, thinks Siri is either no big deal or an is annoyance lol. They all agree the only reason they use it is to show other people Siri, no practical use.

    I would rather see my daughter pregnant at 16 than with an iPhone.

    It's all good. I could not talk my daughter into an android device for her first smart phone. She went with an iphone 4. She loves it.

    Honestly since I've had this phone I have been considering switching to iphone. Battery life sucks slower then the 2nd coming of christ and just had so many issues. I have had D2G since april and had more issues in a day then my iphone 3g had in a year. Why should I stay with android besides the kick ass interface?

    My dad recently got an iPhone 4S as well. Of all people, I couldn't believe HE went to the dark side. For years and years and years, he was never one to have any Apple products. Then a couple years ago, he got an iPod Touch. Then a few months after that, an iPad appeared. And now this. *sigh* What's worst about it is that he had a Droid 2 prior to that.

    I have taught my daughters well. :)

    My family is Android but my sister and her family like IPhones. The other day at a get together, my sisters brother in law was talking to my daughter about how IPhones are better and that anyone who says Android can do more is wrong. So my 15 year old daughter proceeded to school this guy on exactly what she can do with her Android and if course, he could not do it in his iPhone.

    I was so proud. Lol

    That's impressive. Get them started off right :)

    And to be clear if someone feels an iPhone is right for them I am ok with that. I just know for me it's Android all the way.
