    OK, so after almost a week of using the iPhone 4 on Verizon I can honestly say it is damn impressive!

    Call quality is incredible (really clear and no noise while talking to my GF with her iPhone....like I thought she hung up is was so quiet!!)

    This thing is FAST!!! Apps are so responsive and the bottom bar app switcher is WAY more handy on the iPhone since its a small screen.

    The additional RAM is wonderful and a much needed addition to the iPad. It makes it so it can retain app data a lot longer with less need to reload to a state.

    Internet has been very fast (actually a LOT faster than with my droid.....or maybe my Droid was just so horribly slow it just couldn't display pages nearly as fast.) I have been able to stream Hulu, Netflix, and Air Video over 3G no problem. Had some stuttery issues with EyeTV...but that app is just weird!

    IM+ is a MILLION times better on iPhone! Love it! Navigon BLOWS AWAY google maps nav! Very happy with that! And with the maps being local it doesn't matter how the cell signal is...AND it uses a LOT less power!

    I really love how it seemlessly switches between 3G and WiFi....I can be at the office using wifi, walk over to starbucks listening to Pandora and it will make the handoff without a single stutter.....really amazing!

    I'm trying really hard to think of anything I haven't liked about it...and I can't think of anything yet.

    Anyone else get a pre-order iPhone on Verizon that has any thoughts after their week long experience so far?

    I picked mine up last night around 8pm.

    So far, greatly impressed. I pull roughly 2.5mbps data speeds. Huge update from my iPhone 3G on T-Mobiles EDGE network. Averaged out roughly 100kbps download and 40kbps upload. Did this for two years almost!! lol

    I orderd my Karas Kustom case the other day. Should be here Monday.

    Only issue I have is with Gmail Push email.

    It'll work with for an hour or so, then I get this error. When it does work, it's nearly on chime with my iPad. Both Push before my actual Gmail on the web.

    Like I said..works for an hour or two, then I get this. Enter passowrd a few times, and keeps popping up.

    You shouldn't use exchange for Gmail mail. Use the Gmail account setting...for Mail, Calendars, and Notes....set up exchange with m.google.com for Contacts only. The exchange for mail on gmail is weird.

    I have MobileMe set up for bookmarks and find my phone and gmail has 2 accounts one for exchange contacts and one for gmail.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying it. Going from that ancient low spec Droid should be a very noticeable difference in performance.

    I like the exchange because it can sync my calender and contacts too between my account, and iPad..

    Right, but don't use it for mail.

    If you sync using gmail on all your devices it pushes to all your devices.

    I have my iPhones, iPads, and Macs all linked to my gmail and they all sync perfectly!
