I have been using a LG Chocolate for too many years and its not a smart phone (at least not very smart). While working for someone else and giving at least 50 hrs a week I wasn't going to spend more time working on personal time (like family, sleep). Now that I work for myself I need to be online even when I am unplugged.
What is your favorite smart phone and why?

I have a Droid 2 Global and the battery lasts about 1/2 the day with light use and the screen brightness turned all the way down to almost black. On top of that, it seems to lock up and operate very slowly too often. I especially love the way Google maps locks up all the time on my Google phone.. I miss my simple BB most of the time.

I liked my daughter's smart phone so much I got one for myself. First one.
Samsung Galaxy Prevail from Boost Mobile. I have nothing else to compare it to but my old outdated "dumb" phone. They have a $50 / month all inclusive plan with "shrinkage". Every six months of on-time payments decreases your bill by $5 / month. Bottoms out at $35. Bought this one on sale at Boost Mobile for $144. I'm not big on texting but sure is nice to be able to respond to customers and emails without going back to the computer.
Have been playing with it non-stop since I got it Tuesday. First day was a tad confusing, second day it felt like an old glove.

This is something I'm figuring out now so would be interested in what other people are using.
Iphone. My big question, AT&T or Verizon. The 2 big issues that stand out for me with AT&T you can do both data and voice at the same time and you can use it in a country I might be travelling in the future. Not sure if Verizon is going to do that in the future.
Droid. Just now beginning to look at that one.

I know that Apple went with AT&T because they had the largest worldwide network but they suck in much of the US, especially western states. I avoided the iPhone before because I would have had to setup a new account for $120/month. Now the iPhone is available on where I get a 22% discount through my wife's work.
Are most on droid because they didn't want to switch to AT&T?

I'm on droid because I like the application model better, and the community is more open (has more of an open source feel, though usually not open source). I didn't consider iPhone on principle - I don't like Apple's product/software ecosystem tie-in. It's on a foundation that is designed in particular to limit your options as a consumer in using their range of products and applications. Fine for many, and I'm cool with that. Not for me however.Matt Bidinger

I am an Iphone fan. I feel they revolutionized the cellphone. Yes Android is very cool, but leave me with my good ole Iphone...

I own the HTC Thunderbolt with Verizon. STAY AWAY from this phone. Battery life is awful.

Android, LG Aly for the pull out keyboard (so I can do work/answer helpdesk cases from anywhere).
Stayed with Verizon because AT&T has always had zero cell coverage at my house (at the bottom of a valley), and even Verizon had limited coverage here that ended up getting worse as the trees grew each year so I ended up getting a local mini tower (femtocell) to boost the signal at the house, it automatically routes my Verizon calls over my DSL
The camera on it is really bad though I've had no other problems with the phone.Skip/Owner CCBerries.com
