    iPhone 3G. Want keyboard, Android, better 3G coverage, notification LED (I've sometimes been unaware of missed calls for hours on the iPhone)

    Leaving my BB Storm behind. I enjoy the screen, but that is the only thing keeping me tied to it. My hopes for the OS haven't materialized. 5.0 is a mess, and the core functions of the phone STILL aren't right. Granted, the Droid is new and will most likely have a set of bugs all it's own, but after my ride with the Storm I'm more than willing to let it try and prove itself.

    Dumping the Dare...looking forward to something with actual halfway decent apps, which the Dare sadly never really got. It has a couple, but nothing really nice, and as much as I'm on stuff like Twitter and IM, I need something better.

    Had been looking to upgrade to a BB, but this got my attention, and held on to it.

    Dumping the storm1 with the new OS. Still buggy with memory issues. I just want a phone that does what it's supposed to without feeling overworked

    I am dumping two horrible little LG Chocolates that barely work for two droids for myself and my wife... Should be like the difference between night and day for us! We have been holding off on upgrading to see if the iPhone would come to Verizon... the Droid made me not want to wait any more!

    I left my BlackBerry Pearl. It was a great phone. Small, got stuff done. Not too fast but amazing and reliable. Battery pulls every day were something I wasn't happy about though. Especially with having an otterbox.

    Cool thing is I have a perfectly mint Blackberry Pearl as a backup.

    LG Voyager. Hate the touchscreen that scrolls and keeps scrolling past where you need to go. Then you press to stop it, and get into a contact you don't want.

    (I am leaving it, 2 Droids in shipment waiting to hit my house soon)

    LG VX8300. Old, sturdy, reliable, and dumb as hell.

    Not a bad upgrade, if I may say so myself...

    I left a BB Pearl for the Droid a week ago. While the BB was functional, it really wasn't a good internet data device. Also, the fact that I had it on AT&T didn't help (dropped calls, text messages that wouldn't go through, etc.)
