So my other cell phone post bombed so I thought I would re-do it. I have Android X2 I am currently using. I got it a year ago and used it up until June. The I got a good deal on an iPhone 4s thinking I would love it. Well, I don't. It costs me for every little thing I want to do on it. So I am back with my Droid X2 which, when working is great. But it sometimes does not work plus I would like to get a 4G phone since we are soon to get 4G service (I think)
So--what Verizon Android phone do some of you have? Do you love it? I like the huge screen on the Droid X2 and I like that it is bigger sized so easier to find in my purse. I like the Google Navigation that talks to me and is better than my stand alone gps unit. So I would like to find these things in a newer 4G phone. Any suggestions?

The Galaxy S (Samsung Epic) was quite excellent

Verizon in their infinite wisdom didn't carry the Galaxy S.

Just look on Verizon's website. If all you want is a 4G phone, there's plenty to choose from. If there's something more specific you want, like a slider keyboard or a 20MP camera, that will narrow it down. I actually have two family members that work for VW and they can't even steer me towards a certain phone.

What carrier do you have for your plan? We have AT&T.

I have a 4s, by Apple and love it. I've had it 3 weeks now and I find it so simple to use. I do have to pay $30 a month for internet stuff, and if I buy an app, it will cost at least $2. I have not bought any yet, but that is what DH says is average for things. I love looking at the weather app when we travel anywhere. I love Sari, although she does not always tell me what I ask info on. She does not understand words well at times.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

I can tell you what NOT to get - anything HTC. I have an HTC Wildfire, have only had it a year, and have determined that "HTC" stands for "High Tech Cr@p"

Everyone I know who has the Samsung Galaxy loves it.
