    Dude….chill out!!!

    Android is here to stay. So is iPhone. Competition is a good thing.

    Because now that VZW has the iPhone, AT&T will no longer be competitive, and no one else will be truly competitive. This will allow (and im sure it is inevitable) Big Red to raise their prices as they pretty much please.

    Edit: I do agree however that it is good for the actual devices that we are buying, this increased competition amongst the phone manufacturers is only going to force the advancement of the already ridiculous phones we have. But unfortunately, the prices we pay to use them are going to be outrageous.

    And people are free to take their business elsewhere. Verizon knows this.

    No, but I am sure they aren't paying extra to have it exclusively anymore

    The only thing I'm a little frustrated by is seeing all the threads about and iphone on a DROID forum. I don't know about everyone else here, but I joined this forum to discuss android, NOT the iphone. Tired of seeing iphone threads.........

    Last night I really got excited. I saw an AT&T commercial for the iPhone and thought, wow, maybe iPhone isn't going to Verizon.

    Then it dawned on me that I was watching my TiVo. And the date on the show was 11/15. :palm:

    Come on people chill out.....it's a CELL PHONE!!!! Don't mean to sound harsh but if you have time to get upset about it.....you live a boring life.

    Competition is good.....without the iPhone y'all probably wouldn't be enjoying your droid.

    This is in a tiny little section there is still an entire forum discussing droids. I say lets get all this hype done with so we can all move on.

    One, then stay out of the IPHONE SUBFORUM and Two, don't read and post in the threads if you don't like them. Both fixes are in your hands. Get over it.
