I have the same issue. My Verizon contract is due the first of Sept. My Motorola V3M screen will intermittently go blank white. I am also considering the Verizon LG Dare as well as the Curve and IPhone. The demo on Apple.com for the Iphone is amazing, however waiting in line for a phone is not something I will consider. I due not believe my ITunes playlists will transfer to the other two phones. I may just have to keep carying the nano around. Trying to do a direct comparison when relating to cost has also been a challenge. Neither website will offer direct comparison to competition. AT&T and Verizon seem to have very similar costs. I hope someone can help with info to help us both.
I am having difficulty deciding which one would be the most useful, beneficial, and economical.
One factor is the service provider.I have been a loyal Verizon customer for years because the service has been so good, and I have had the least amount of problems with in comparison to Tmobile and Cingular. I also hear that Cingular has had many dropped calls in my area and service can sometimes be difficult.
On the other hand, compatibility is also important in terms of syncing. I have a Macbook Pro (just bought last year), and obviously, the Iphone would be the clear choice since it would have no issues with the sync. Yet, I know that there is software for the curve as well? (Missing sync or something)
My contract for Verizon will end by this month (July), so I am waiting on whether switching providers, and/or switching phones will help determine my choice. I have this feeling that because the new iphone is coming out, I am sure Verizon might bring in something to help combat this.
Any advice, comments, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
