Does anyone have an Android phone?

Which Model?

How do you like it?

Compared to Smartphone, Iphone etc.

I have Samsung Blackjack II which I like, but the screen is real small compared to the Iphone, I also have a Blackberry which I don't like as i can't see the keys well without glasses.

Making the leap from a qwerty keyboard to a touchscreen has me dubious as to whether I would like it.

Do you mean Droid? Not sure my phone qualifies as an android--it's a T-Mobile G-1 using android operating system. Has a slide up screen w/ qwerty board. If I slide the screen back down a touchscreen board pops up. I actually got rid of my home PC internet service and use my phone for internet now. I pay bills on it, use the map GPS feature for finding customers' homes, search the web, listen to prerecorded music and talk shows, and even use it as a... well, a phone. In fact I'm typing this on it. It is also a camera and video recorder. With all the different free apps available this thing is heaven-sent. One app I have is a speedometer. My dump truck speedo doesn't work so all I do is set the phone on the dashpad and away I go, Mr. Occifer, sir.

 Android Phone Review

At work there are a mix of Android and iPhones. The owners of both are loyal to their brand. From an observers opinion iPhones are less desirable in our business environment because AT&Ts network generally sucks and because they seem much more difficult to get working with the corporate network.

IMO, I despise smartphones and won't use one. Their battery life generally sucks and the manufacturers seem to place the ability to actually send and receive calls way down the priority list. People are always futzing to resolve problems with them such as eating batteries in an hour, not recharging, rebooting sporadically, failing to ring when calls are made, delivering voice mail a week after the call was placed, etc, etc. So I always buy a phone that makes and receives calls and does nothing else.

It also bugs the heck out of me that people become literally addicted to them. They can't hold conversations, watch movies, or have a quiet meal without having to check the damn phones for something or other.

The Toyotty now has it's third set of KYBs in three years. They said if (i.e. when) they go out again they will replace them with Bilsteins for the cost diff. I'm gonna miss that shock-free wallowing that brings back memories 60s Caddies.

Possibly you and I should start a crusade, I like keeping things simple too.
The cell phone I have now will perform two functions, it will call someone when I punch in the numbers, it will ring when someone calls me. When I bought it I told the teeny bopper who sold it to me that I wanted all the other stuff turned off, messages, texting, and what ever else it could do. Ok, she said, but you'll pay for it anyhow, fine, I just don't want all that annoying crap. My pickup truck, an 07, still has crank windows and the simpilest radio you could get, I don't think you can buy one like that anymore, but if you could I would.
OH, now EW, we do have indoor plumbing, life is a bit too simple without it, my childhood memories tell me that.
Frank.
