    Not here.
    Not envious, nor impressed.
    Perfectly happy with my android.
    If you are happy with apple, keep it.

    If Apple had not had an exclusive contract with AT&T when they first came out I would probably have gone Apple. AT&T was marginal at my old house and non existent at my parents' house. Still trash at my parents' house.

    Android may suck, but at least it sucks in exactly the way I like it to suck.

    I don't need Steve Jobs telling me from beyond the grave that all my icons belong on the top left, while my thumb is permanently affixed to the bottom right.

    :agree::agree::agree: If I didn’t use them in clinic, I wouldn’t own a “smartphone”. I’d just have a wicked cool flip phone. There was one around ‘10 that looked rugged and futuristic and came in copper colored. I think verison carried it back then.


    All smartphones suck, I’m so used to apple that I stick with their suckage so I don’t have to learn to loathe android.

    I only hate android slightly less than Apple. They both suck monkeys. I would like a phone that does what I want, not what Verizon, ATT, Google or Apple want. And the PHONE is the most important feature not the freaking camera or screen. I want it to be able to handle calls reliably.

    Ive been watching the sopranos on that commie amazon and they were using some old flip phones I don’t give a damn those phones were cool. I loved my razor I would go back to one in a heart beat. I think The Whole apple sucks android sucks thing Is funny. Why do we really care what brand of phone each other carries or uses. I’m gonna have to really look at the flip phones they used to remember the names of them. They had the pull up antenna. I think they were cool as hell. Screw you iPhone I want my razor. Ha ha.

    AT&T is the worst provider in America. I would go to a tin can and a string before I’d go back.

    Not really, 99% of the time a re-boot makes everything perfect. This happens a couple times a year. Let's not forget the rush one gets walking into an Apple store! Kind of like the feeling we get walking into a gun store. :)

    Oh wait, I forgot the excitement of waking up at 3am eastern time to order the newest release and waiting by the door for it to arrive a few days later. The anticipation is even greater as one shares the excitement on Howard's Forums. :)

    They both suck in their own, special ways.

    Agreed.
    I fired AT&T a few years ago. It was the second most liberating experience I can think of. The first most liberating being tossing my smart(ass)phone in a drawer a few weeks ago. I'M FREE!


    I wouldn't go that far.
    I will agree that every time I have gone to the Apple store, it has been a quick and easy in and out experience, but no, not a rush at all. It's just the way a visit to a retailer should be.
