    . . . And would you now consider one having used the iPad?

    I'm very impressed with the apps available, in my opinion there are more useful, available apps than for my current windows mobile.

    My phone contract is up in a few months but I can upgrade now to an iPhone, although the isn't that good.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    nope. I dont need a fancy phone now that I have the iPad. I ditched the smartphone data service and got this phone (since the iPad doesnt have a camera) 3x Zoom, 5MP

    A lot of Droid users have iPads for some reason. I used to be in the Droid camp, but switched back to an iPhone when I got to Germany.

    To be honest I have very little experience of Android, but I am considering the Desire.

    It would be much cheaper than an iPhone, but, I'm afraid to say, I'm turning into a bit of an Apple fan!

    If my company didn't give use BlackBerries, I probably wouldn't have a cell phone at all!

    No iPhone here. Won't do business with AT&T. Needless to say, I chose the WiFi iPad.

    Droid X and Verizon here. The iPhone is like a Ferrari driving on a backroad filled with potholes. I would never, ever, even remotely think of going back to AT&T after having used Verizon.

    And frankly the Droid X is so awesome, that even if they offered to switch it out with an iPhone for free (assuming it came to VZW) I most likely would not.

    I have the same problem here with 3. They offer the best contract deal but I won't use them since they tried, repeatedly, to rip me off when I ended a contract with them a few years ago. Gutted really.

    No iPhone because I need a phone as a phone. Everything else is why I have an iPad. I have two iPod Touches, but I do not use either one for anything.

    Ditto on the BB9650, once I switched from winmo to Blackberry I've had no desire to try another.
    My buddy with an iPad is anxiously awaiting VZW iPhone.

    Also, I'm with Sprint, best pricing around and in my area great coverage!

    I don't have iPhone, I never even liked Apple. But after being gifted an iPad and after using it, I don't look to Apple as the same anymore. I still don't want to get iPhone, considering I already got the same operative OS (iPad). I love my HTC HD2. I think HTC is the next big thing.

    I could never switch from webos to ipones platform.albeit minimal apps, the pre has a far more user friendly interface/os.

    i had the first iPhone for two years. I momentarily switched to Verizon with a regular non-smart phone. after getting the iPad, i feel that i don't need an iPhone. the screen actually just feels way too small now.

    No iPhone here. My aging BB Storm (original) is still hanging in there. Will
    wait and see if iPhone comes to Verizon and if not it will be upgrade to a
    Droid. I simply refuse to go to AT&T. They have the worst reception of any
    carrier in my area.

    Droid Incredible here. I wouldn't mind an iPhone but am happy with Android and will NOT go to AT&T. Coverage is just too crappy for the areas I'm around. If the iPhone ever came to Verizon, I would probably pick that one up for my wife and keep the Android for myself.

    It seems that for quite a few people the carrier is just, if not more, important than the phone itself. Interesting.
