Pros Battery life, apps, calendar, everything
Cons Not very personable
Summary I love this phone. I've owned Blackberry phones for about 4 years, and decided to buy a Droid from Verizon. I returned it within a couple weeks because the battery life was just terrible. They told me all smart phones with apps, games, touch screens, etc would have terrible battery life, but I needed a phone that I could rely on to be able to make a phone call at the end of the day. If I wanted a laptop for a phone, I would have bought a...wait a second, I already have a laptop, I want a cell phone!Had for 5 months now, and still the best phone ever! I didn't charge it last night and the battery only went down 2%. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it because there's always new apps and software upgrades! I do like how the iPhone 4 looks, and could use a front facing camera for Skype, but I think this is the first phone I will actually keep until my contract is up :)
So I paid $200 to get out of Verizon and get an iPhone, and I love it! I have been at work for 6 hours today, and my battery is at 98%. I even have ios 4, which supposedly has worse battery life for the 3GS. But I have read about 10 emails, gone on gchat, played Words with friends with 4 friends, checked facebook, played chess, and still only down 2%! This is even comparable to my blackberry, that "had internet" but by the time the page loaded I didn't need it anymore.
All the apps are great. This thing is amazing. Oh, except you have to pay to make your own ringtones, which is always something I enjoyed being able to do for free on a Blackberry (edit song in GarageBand, export as MP3, send via bluetooth, and viola). But that's the ONLY negative about the iPhone.
And for those of you with ios 4 on 3GS with battery problems, I restored the phone from iTunes as a new phone after the AT&T rep set it up, and I make sure to quit applications if I've got like 15 open. Otherwise, I don't have to think twice about the battery!

Pros You can do everything with this phone. Music,photos, videos,and of course the hundreds of apps
Cons The battery drains if you use the internet a lot, but what phone doesn't. No flash when taking photos
Summary This is my first touch screen smartphone and I can say I have not been disapointed. I was going to get the iphone 4, but it has a lot a junk that I really don't need like facetime, I really don't need to see who I'm talking to. Overall I'm very happy with this phone
Pros It's faster than the 3G.
Cons The volume rockers are hard to use with some cases.
Pros it looks cool
Cons everything. mine crashed after just two hours of purchasing it
Pros - Inexpensive (cost me 29 bucks!)
- Integrates seamlessly with iTunes.
- Mobile internet on a 3.5" screen is awesome
Cons - Slow.
- A little too cute looking for this guy.
Summary So I got it from Fido in May 2010. It ran okay, then I updated the iOS in July. Ran like crap for a month. Then someone emailed S. Jobs about this issue that summer and weeks later Apple had released the update in late August which I downloaded, installed on my iPhone and behold - it fixed the issue. Why can't Microsoft ever do anything like that??? Any-hoo, it could be faster, but it's an old model now. Looking to replace it with a phone worthy of a man: a Blackberry.
