    Nexus One coming to Verizon later this Spring. You VRZN users should wait for it than pick up a Droid.

    I might get an unlocked phone, but I'll be losing 3g on AT&T. Hmm.....

    Verizon user.

    Droid, Nexus One or Iphone in June? It's getting interesting here.

    Apple user since an Apple IIe (early 80's) so needless to say I have a Mac.

    Sure. The phone seems to be fine with the exception of a few "new phone bugs" that you can expect with any new phone. The problem currently, falls at the feet of Google. Google has aligned themselves with TMobile, and soon Verizon, to have the Nexus One on their networks, however, they have not issued even demo units to any retail stores. If you're like me, you want to at least hold a demo unit in your hand and make sure that in person it is what you want. Google has taken that basic step away from the consumer. You can only purchase the Nexus One in the Google Store.

    I am due for an upgrade on my plan, so I looked at the Nexus One. I went to the Google Store, and when I selected upgrade on my T-Mobile plan, it said I did not qualify and only gave me the option to pay full price. I called TMobile, and was told that they have no information and any and all inquiries had to be made via Google Store. TMobile quite literally has no leeway in dealing with it's consumers when it comes to this phone.

    This extends to functional issues with the phone. I have a few people (tech nerds) that are friends of mine (Still nerds) just had to have this phone the day it came out. Once they received it, the phone was grand, but had issue upon issue linking with the TMO G3 network. Apparently, there is a patch to improve that now, but there is no other option but to email the Google Tech Support/Customer Service and wait otherwise. Now, If I pay nearly $600 for a phone, I dont really want to wait for them to email me a response or mail the phone back and wait for a return.

    What it amounts to is that the phone is technologically fantaastic. However, Google's choices have left this phone (for me) to be a bit more than a pain in the ass than it's worth.

    So your upset over the customer service or the phone? It's getting the best accolades out there right now. I have am NTC Hero because I have Sprint and I love it. The reason why I bring this up is because the Hero is closer to the size than the Droid itself.

    More, customer service issues than the phone. However, for those shelling out $600 after tax and shipping, watching one almost fly into a wall because it was not picking up the 3G service and was slow as molasses in downloading pages was both hilarious and enlightening.

    That is funny. But I'm wit you, I don't think there's a phone out there worth $600. I don't care if the thing wipes your ash, it still not worth $600 bucks.
