Has anyone who loved the iPhone been able to switch back to a plain ol' smartphone?

Asked by tinyfaery (40935points) September 16th, 2010

Yeah, yeah. I know. The iPhone sucks. I don’t need to hear it. I want answers from people who LIKE THE IPHONE!

I’ve had 2 iPhones now. Sometimes I think about downgrading to a Blackberry or Droid because I know I won’t be on it as much and therefore it will be cheaper. But, I feel like I might go through withdrawals or something. I am always on my phone. Fluther, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, Trivia… I think if I got rid of it, I might be a more productive human being.

Have you successfully quit the iPhone? What phone do you have now? Do you love your new phone as much as the iPhone?

I have the iPhone 3G3. I upgradred from the Blackberry Curve. My workphone is also the Curve. Whenever I have to do anything with my workphone, I feel like I’m having to chisel out something with hammer and stone! So archaic!! I have my work emails and calendar synched on my iPhone so to avoid the Curve as much as possible.

Once ya go iPhone, ya never wanna go back!

I tried a palm pre for a while and am looking forward to giving windows phone 7 but I’ll still like my iPhone.

The Droids do pretty much everything the iPhone does, just as easily. There is no downgrade to Android, just a horizontal move. Droids are also just as expensive. If you want to spend less time on your phone get a dumbphone or use some other method.

- typed on my Droid in a proper browser as I wait for class to start in 7 minutes. As I play a crossword, a jigsaw puzzle, and shop for shoes. Seriously, it won’t change a thing.

He had an ipod touch not an iphone and neither did you. Thanks for nothing.

@tinyfaery But isn’t your entire premise based on the entire idea that Droids can’t do what iPhones can, and that they are cheaper? I may not have had an iPhone, but I can point out errors so that you don’t waste any money needlessly.
