    In the next month or so I qualify to upgrade my phone. I would like a new one. I'm with verizon if that makes a difference.

    Can anyone recommend a good smart phone?

    Is there a specific windows phone that is leading the pack?


    And I know this is an odd question, but with my droid Eris my google email just pops up. Will that happen with a windows or iphone?

    Most would say either an htc hd7 or probably better the samsung omnia

    There'll be new ones out in a few months with the new software release (mango) but theyre very very very very very good!

    yep it'll happen exactly the same with any windows phone or any iphone

    To get one unlocked from Apple I have to pay a fortune for it.

    Chris tried, Vodafone and 3 and they won't unlock them until the phone is out of it's contract. AND the sim is smaller :D

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    We have three smartphones in my house I have the HTC Incredible and have had it about a year now and I love it. My wife has the IPHONE and she loves her phone. My son has the Droid X.Each one of us thinks our phone is the best. I love what HTC is doing with the phones. I will definitely stick with HTC when I am ready for an upgrade.
