    By hack I think your friend means rooting which is something completely different.

    Anyway currently on a HTC G2 right now and since my upgrade isn't due until next year I'm probably going to grad luminary 710 off of ebay over the summer to hold me over.
    Its his job. Hacking, rooting, whatever you want to call it.

    Regardless, its easy, assuming you got the right tools and right groups to share knowledge.

    I just came off an 18 month stint with the Droid X on Verizon. Tons of lag and many hard resets. Jumped in on the HTC Trophy and loving it. I know its not very high end phone, but it is more pleasant to use than my old X. Never going to look back again. I'm anxious to see what Verizon is going to bring to the table for WP.

    I have a Droid Incredible on Verizon, and I'm waiting to see if a new WP comes out on Verizon by October. Sadly, my mom no longer wants to dish out the $300 a month for our plan, and will be cancelled when my contract runs out.

    i really hope they can get on board when apollo comes out. verizon has fast become the worst provider when it comes to phone selection (again) provided you don't want one of their 9 million identical droids or the iphone.

    Currently using the original Samsung Focus and my contract is not up until mid July but the wife is ready for an upgrade so I have the Lumia 900 on pre-order for her in blue. She curretly has a BB Torch and hates it (although I think some of the hate comes from lack of knowing how to use it properly!!) ssshhh don't tell her that.

    Anyway, WP7.5 and Nokia FTW!!

    I've had everything but Android and WP 7. I'm getting one because its different and I like to try new things. If I like it, I'll spread the word. If I don't like it, I'll spread the word too. Also, our company is like a super Microsoft Partner and I told our CTO that at least one person should have one. So I got work to pay for mine. Yoink.

    Had a variety, starting with the Treo 180, original iPhone, first day G1 on t-mobile. Various Blackberrys. Most recently a Droid X, died 1 year and 1 month into my Verizon contract. Tried a Titan, liked the OS but decided with the Titan 2 and Lumia 900 coming out to return it. Using a ZTE AT&T prepaid flip until tomorrow!

    I came to the Windows Phone platform last year around the March timeframe. I will NEVER look back. I came from Android.

    Even being the techy geek that I am, I got SO tired of flashing custom ROMs all the time on Android just to get things working or to just have the ability to uninstall crap-ware. In November I switched from Sprint (I wanted Windows Phone options) to AT&T and haven't, so far, regretted that decision. I think Nokia being 'all in' with Windows Phone will help the platform ultimately.

    leaving both had every single iPhone and had multiple androids, G1, Hero, Galaxy S, HTC Inspire 4G ,Galaxy S2, Nexus one , Nexus S , Galaxy Nexus im sure there are a few that i missed. Basically bored with iOS even though it works flawless and bored with android because it isnt flawless and still feels uncomplete
    This is pretty funny, it's identical to my situation. I have had so many phones and my take on them is just about the same. I love iOS but I just...CAN'T stand looking at the same row of apps..apps...apps. I want to "live" with another OS for a while. I can't do Android again. ICS is a HUGE improvement over any previous iteration but there are still too many tradeoffs. Crashes, battery pulls, maybe you'll get an OS upgrade, maybe not. People who insisted that the Nexus would get every new OS are probably cursing Verizon right about now.

    Ive pretty much left Android back in November when I got my HTC Titan. I have no desire to go back. I find WP7 elegant and smooth as opposed to Android which at times clunky and not smooth. I still own a Motorola Atrix which I use now and then but it's no longer my daily driver. I'm waiting to see that Apple has in store this year as far as iPHone goes.

    I'm leaving Android (MyTouch 4G) to get a Lumia 710. My boyfriend isn't using his Nook Color that's rooted, so I'll use the apps on there that I can't use with WP.

    I've used all of the OS' that are out there:

    Android- Has came a LONG way. It's unfair to say how laggy and inconsistent it is now with all the powerhouse machines out supporting it. It's developing and has a much better ecosystem and consistency across the devices. Since I'm not a huge tweaker, I'm not that invested in it and actually miss my People hub

    iOS- Love love love the fact that iPhone has so many accessories made for it and it has a consistent experience, but I got tired of looking at those ugly sub menus and the sea of icons. I would recommend it over Android for app exclusivity (and yes you can change the look if you jailbreak it, but it's so hard to keep up with jailbreaking with Apple updating the software)

    WebOS- Used the Palm Pixi on Sprint. I think it had a good start but the lack of apps and my horrible battery life (plus the constant freezing) took me away from it

    Blackberry- Only used an 8530 for two months. It felt like I took a tumble back in time.

    I think Windows Phone fits me the best because of the Social focus. I love that. Once they get more of the social game apps up to par (Draw Something, Words, Zynga period), I think I would stick to it being my sole device

    I left Android at Gingerbread. I never got to the stage where I hated it. I just disliked constantly flashing new ROMs on it. My question for those of you that have used ICS: Is ICS good enough to reconsider trying it again?

    ICS is good, MUCH better than GB in terms of a more conscious effort put into the UX.

    however, it's still a mishmash of design elements, very few phones have it officially right now (i think one can count all the official ICS phones on one hand) and the general fragmentation of hardware and software issues is still very present.

    what really annoys me is the promise of a fluid UX is still not there, and we're four versions into android and all we get are promises that it will be fixed in the next version, first it would be fixed in froyo, then gingerbread, then ICS, and now jelleybean. personally i'm tired of all the half assed attempts by google to create something that actually has some heart and soul put into it.

    and with the amount of complaints people have with all the OE skins (which are pretty terrible) all the manuf still insist on infecting android with all their extremely poorly coded (namely blur and touchwiz) skins and a metric crapload of carrier bloat which is still not very easy to remove (for the average user).

    what i can say with certainty is my focus s out of the box ran circles around my galaxy nexus and galaxy note, both of which should have cleaned the floor with the "weaker" focus s' hardware, which leaves only the poorly optimized android to blame for the relative poor performance.

    that being said, for phone type use, i'd use vanilla ICS over iOS in a heartbeat if i had to choose between the two.

    I agree. With Android I always felt like it either wasn't finished, or sometimes that they didn't put any thought or effort into some of the things they did.

    it's funny you guys talk about android being incomplete.....

    having fun not being able to change seperate volumes?

    When wp7 actually becomes fully functional I'll consider coming back. Wayyyy too much missing as it stands right now.

    No wonder you guys have no games...

    That gpu is old as **** already. I don't expect everything to have dual core, etc.. but cmon now. A flagship at that price shouldn't be using stuff that outdated.

    I had an E71 totally forgot about that phone loved it!
    I loved that phone! I'm hoping to get a 900 to replace my personal BlackBerry Torch. I've always been a fan of Nokia's build quality.

    I've gone from the Nokia 5800 to the BlackBerry Curve 8520 to the BlackBerry Torch 9800 to the HTC Desire Z to the HTC TITAN (chuck two iPod Touch devices in there too to cover iOS). I'm not dropping my TITAN for the 900, but I am going to stay with WP7, in two years time I'll see what is available. Metro, more like Perfectro. Still a few niggles with the OS but it is mindbogglingly good in comparison to Android, iOS, and BBOS.

    I've had original Windows Mobile phones that I've loved and some I've hated (HTC Mogul anyone?), Palm Pre, Palm Centro, too many Android devices to count... but after the Nextel debacle, early loss of the iPhone, lack of WP devices, WiMax performance, slow LTE rollout, and now the huge iPhone buy in (which, in my area at least, has destroyed the 3G network speeds), I just couldn't deal with Sprint anymore. I bought a Focus Flash in January with the intention of giving it to my wife at the release of the 900 (on FedEx vehicle for delivery!), and have been very happy so far.
