That's funny considering I'm seeing used iPhone 3GS on eBay for $250. You're derailing your own case.

I choose Android over iOS. I have Poweramp for music and it sounds way better than the iphone especially if you're an audiophile or own quality headphones/ IEM. Drag and dropping files onto my SD card, web browsing with text resize makes reading easy, and of course customization.

My sister, Aunt, 3 of my cousins and I all have moved to Andriods recently, just because they offer so much more for a better price. I don't get the whole support for the iPhone still, yes it was nice when it came out, before Androids were plentiful, but honestly getting an iPhone now is taking a step backwards.
iPhone = 1 size, 1 style 1 maker, and now finally 2 providers.
Android = whatever size and style you want, multiple manufactuers, and all 4 main providers in US + more smaller local providers.

In the end I wouldn't trade my Thunderbolt for anything right now, fast phone AND faster internet.

Ok, I rest my case. I mean, $350 is the single ABSOLUTE most expensive 3GS I can find on eBay; the rest go for $180-$220 but I'll let you take that one, the resale value is fine. So again in the end: why WOULDN'T you upgrade every year or two when you can sell your current iPhone for $200+ and get the new model for $200 with a contract extension? Seems like a no-brainer to me, and it is with the Android upgrades. Case in point I and the other guy were trying to make from the beginning is that the upgrade gap between a 3GS and 4 are minimal as opposed to an EVO to EVO 3D for the same cost or less. How this relates to the topic at hand: I'd say in a larger survey more existing Android users would still WANT Android since their next possible Android upgrade is (typically according to the yearly update cycles) a much greater leap than the next upgrade for iPhone users. I sincerely doubt that the Android users just simply "settle" for what they have and would want an iPhone as someone suggested earlier in this thread.

Now you've just made my case for me. You said earlier that android's big selling point was their upgraded hardware phone makers have came out with in the last year after the iPhone 4 came out (in a software thread). Now you agree that upgrading your hardware when your carrier will give you a good price on it with a 2 year contract extension is a good way to upgrade. Well, most people upgrading to iPhone 4 were coming off 2 year contracts with a 3G. That is a huge upgrade. People with 3GS had not been under contract as long and most would not justify the upgrade cost, even with a TOTAL REDESIGN to the hardware and a much improved screen. No matter how you argue, when the iPhone 4 launched it was specced close to or at the top of any category you want to measure smart phones on.

With that said, what more could you possibly expect at launch? How could the supposed "small upgrade" have been larger?

Android user who thinks that a digital music player sounds better than another digital music player. Considers himself an audiophile. This is pure irony in this thread.

Looks like my best bet is Virgin Mobile after my VZW contract expires early next year. $35 a month sounds right where they all smartphone plans should be priced at.
$100 a month! Are you for real? That seems crazy expensive, what does $100 a month net you for value?

The cap I'm on with my favourite telco, Optus is $49 a month and that gets me $450 worth of calls, texts and MMS + 1.5GB of data with free SMS and MMS for the first year. Pretty great I reckon!

Vodafone AU offer unlimited caps from as little as $45 a month with 1.5GB of data but if you live in Tasmania Vodafone are terrible, I know people on the mainland complain about them but really, you should try it out down here.

Of course, if you lash out and get a super high-end phone they come at an extra cost which is normally an extra $5 - $10 a month depending on the cap and phone.

So you're saying all digital music players sound the exact same? That couldn't be farther from the truth.
