    I'd take Android as a second phone. Because iPhones are grossly overpriced here. I can live with Androids "beta-feel" more than I can live with Apple sucking my money. But if you haven't limited it to those two. I'd probably take BB Z10 as a second phone.

    Android for sure I am not a big fan of anything Apple.

    I've often joked about going back to a feature phone if MS pulled the plug on WP, but I would likely go Android, or maybe Ubuntu or one of the other new entrants. Maybe Open WebOS. WebOS was awesome.

    Edit: Sorry, just read the OP. Android for me, thanks.

    Android.

    Free wifi tether, more capabilities, WAY easier to do what I want it to do.

    Android used to be my first pick. I've been doing a lot of research into mobile security lately, so now it's my last. And before someone chimes in with that lame old argument that "no dude, that's exaggerated by AV software companies to sell you their products"...

    Sorry but no, not really.

    iOS, for the excellent library of applications/games. Also, the hardware is pretty nice. I wold tolerate an Android if I had no choice, but since I do have a choice...

    Neither...never owned an Android or an applephone. If I couldn't use WP8 I'd just reactivate my Torch until a "third option" became available...oh wait...BB Z10

    Before I got my WP, I was contemplating between it, a Nexus 4 and Note 2..so yeah, Android would be my choice. iOS to me just got dull when the i5 came out. Not really "The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone".

    Hmm at first i thought iPhone since I've never actually experienced it (and I know this sounds dumb but I really like all the designer cases for it) and all my friends have it and i'd be good to try the all the major OS...especially since they're starting to get cheap on a plan
    But I'm on tmobile so iphone is out of the question, I kinda hate Samsung Androids phone (they're the reason androids are coined glitchy and unreliable!) so the only option would be either the Nexus or a HTC (most likely nexus)
    But now I'd be hard pressed not to go with another Windows phone, they've really won me over! :P

    Before I knew windows phones existed I would have said HD2. I tried iOS an it just didn't / doesn't feel personal enough. I feel like my HTC 8X has some more of a home environment at my finger tips.

    If it was just WP that had been knocked out it would be BB10.
    If everything except iOS/Android had been knocked out, it would be difficult. I have so many friends (including ALL my best mates, except one) on iMessage, it's unreal. Then again I have an iPod Touch for that. So I would probably go the Note 2 and remove my need for a tablet (I have a HTC Flyer currently, my only choice of upgrade is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0). Then again, I don't want TouchWiz on a phone and I need an interface that keeps me interested. Which WP and HTC Androids both do brilliantly. HTC because of the OTT and in-your-face Sense, with things like full-screen weather.

    Android.

    There are very nice Android phones out there, and iOS just looks and feels outdated. And I really don't like Apple, so definitely iOS. I wouldn't really like to enter the Google ecosystem though.

    If money were no object, most likely an XPERIA Z.
    Actually if money were no object I'd probably buy one right now - though that more has to do with the fact that it is waterproof than for the OS.

    In this order,
    I would go back to my Moto Q Windows 6.5.
    But since we are limited to the described options, iOS. I have never had an Apple product, but it would seem the better choice due to longevity

    I would have to confiscate my international Galaxy Note from my daughter. It was my daily driver until I got the L920.

    android, cause I have a strong dislike of apple, though google is going there fast too.

    As an OS I REALLY like iOS better than android because "it just works" generic apple slogan. Otherwise, the hardware for android would probably make me want to go to it just because the screens are so much larger. It funny that my 1.5 year old focus S has a larger screen than the iphone 5 does with its "HUGE 4" screen". Seriously I'd get like a note 2 or something. I hope windows phone for the MWC gets a phablet...that would be nice as I'm due for an upgrade in like 6 months.

    Painful as it is to say it, it would have to be boring old, outdated IOS for me but only because I wouldn't trust Google with my data or Android with anything needing security. I suppose I could use Siri so that I didn't have to look at the pig-ugly antiquated UI too often!

    I currently have a Galaxy S3 and Xyboard 8.2. My old personal phone before my 8X was the LG Intuition. I've carried the Razr M and Incredible 4G for about 2 weeks prior to their launch. Before my S3 I had a Rezound. I will never pay money for another Android device.

    I think I would like a Nexus though. Too bad Verizon will probably never have one again.
