"I have been having the iPhone for a very long time and I really want to switch for an Android phone. I know there's choices on different handsets on AT&T, and I narrowed it down on two phones: the HTC Inspire 4G and the LG Phoenix. I had experienced the Android OS but I'm also on a budget. I have big hands, I think, so the HTC Inspire 4G has a big screen, but I also want something compact and light, like the LG Phoenix. I saw the reviews for both phones, however, I'm still stuck on which phone I should get. What do you guys think? Does screen size matter?" --Jasper from California
"Why are lots of phones branded as world phones when throughout my extensive travels they rarely are? Just because a phone is unlocked and you can swap SIM cards does not mean it will work on another country's network." --Vernor, a U.S. sailor in Japan
