Default What phone should I get??!

I have had my POS Envy Touch for the past 3+ years and I am eligible for an upgrade "with a discount" through Verizon. I am really looking at the Iphone 4s but is there anything better I should check out instead since the 4s is still just a 3g phone while most new phones on Verizon are now 4g! I also do not understand this discount they are talking about since when I went through the upgrade procedure online the total price was still $199 with the 2 year contract for the 16GB phone. Where does this "discount" come into play? I like the Iphone because I know how to use them and I know what they can do.. I plan on going into the Verizon store tomorrow and leaving with my new phone but still not sure if that new phone will be the 4s or not. Help me out guys!!

I have the iPhone 4 and would recommend the 4s.
Everyone I know with a droid has some kind of complaint about it, usually battery life or just a fickle problem.

I am an old fashion type guy, i am looking for a phone with a rotary dial heheh

I went to my AT&T store & told them that i wanted to change my Motorola V3 for a Samsung Rugby 2
They said that they were willing to let me try out the phone in the parking lot, to see if it was compatible with the Uconnect in my '09 Ram

maybe Verizon would let you try it out, before you buy it, if they want the sale, they should

My vote goes for the Droid 3. I'm not sure if it's 3g or 4g, but it's one of the few phones that still has the slide out keyboard that you're used to. I've got the Droid 2, it's got it's issues, but I've been real happy with it.

If you're looking to save a little money on your upgrade check out Wire Fly as you can save some serious cash. When I upgraded from my Envy 3 to a Droid 2, the going rate was about $199 per phone, but I got mine for Buy one get one free at $39.

good luck and let us know

Exco

Verizon dropped their price on the Bionic, now $249. There is a known OS issue with the battery life on the iPhone 4S, soon to be fixed on an update.

Face it, no cell is perfect and there will always be something about a phone you don't like. I personally thing the Apple OS, while easy and sleek, is boring. Jailbreaking to get more options is a pain. I hate the virtual keyboards and I miss widgets. When the Samsung Captivate Glide comes out it is bye bye iPhone for me.

I left Verizon when they announced they were taking away all the perks. Old members were going to be allowed one last upgrade with the additional discount off the phones. After that, no more discount, you pay what the price is on the phone and no more early upgrades either.

I have two phones, iPhone 4 (Personal) and a Moto Druid x2 (Work).

From what I've seen, it's all about what you want and what you're going to do with it. This is my third iPhone and the worst one yet. The battery is lack-luster, the signal is iffy and the apps are meh.

I provide Droid X2's for everyone at work. They are absolutely incredible! When I buy them at work, it's normally Phone/OtterBox/Car Charger/Extended Battery. If you're lucky, they'll run you around $250 for the package (Depending on how much your store likes you, we get less because we buy two a week..). These phones are durable, the signal is over all the best I've seen, short of the old brick phones (We work in the sticks.. one of the things you notice). With my exchange email set to push, and using 15,000 M2M minues (Yes, I spend roughly 60 hours a week on my cellphone..) I can get THREE DAYS!! out of a charge..

I've worked with a lot of phones out there.. The x2 isn't the prettiest, but I'll be damned if you find a better working phone.. Just my $.02 lol
