Verizon. iPhone 4 or Thunderbolt?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well it is time to upgrade and I don't mind getting unlimited data for just 30 a month also would be getting it to grandfather it in my contract since it will be discontinued soon. So would a jailbroken iPhone 4 be better than the newly released Thunderbolt? I figure since I am getting the unlimited data plan, i should get a phone will all the bells and whistles.

I just talk and text with my VX-5500. It is the predecessor of the Accolade, but I would love to game during my boring classes and when I don't feel like having my computer on at 4 in the morning. Listen to music, watch videos too. and well have bragging rights. :] I will just be sure to get my money's worth out of it. Either way it goes I'll be paying 200 or more for the phone but my portion of the bill will become 55 bucks.

They both have relatively the same features but the thunderbolt is newer/faster and if I was given the choice I'd take it.(coming from a guy with the ip4)

They are both excellent phones. Really, the differences between the two are going to be mostly preference. The TB is much larger, with a significantly bigger screen. The iPhone 4 is more compact with a super high res screen. OS is a personal preference. TB does have LTE, which is a huge plus if you're in an LTE area. TB has a kickstand. Both have two cameras. TB has expandable user memory.

The Thunderbolt is the same as the Evo but the Thunderbolt has 8gb storage onboard and Sense 2.0.

I live in the Beaumont/Port Arthur area that will be receiving LTE soon as the Verizon website states. Would I be getting just about the same app support on he Android platform as I would on the iOS platform?

Android has a huge App Market with a lot of free applications, The Thunderbolt is an upgraded Evo with more memory/storage/ better processor and comes with a 32GB SD card and a better kickstand. Google Voice, Google Maps, Google Navigation are all free!

I've used my friends Evo in Oakland which has Wimax and 4g is extremely fast! If your sure your going to get 4G in your area you would love a Thunderbolt.

I say get the Thunderbolt.. out of the box it comes in at a whopping 40 gigs of storage all together.. IP4 is what 8 and 16 gigs..
It's newer and stuff.. so the choice is yours.
