if you love tinkering, android is the way to go.
if you enjoy simplicity and complete easy of use for your entire expereince, then stick with apple.

i have both OS, use them daily. when i go to parties or wut not, i take my iphone.
when i want to do serious "work" android comes along.

i would give it a go. i would even go as far as to suggest putting a custom ROM on the device.
most if not all Carrier/Factory Stock ROMS are bloated with their crap. downside of android.
in my experience, once you go custom, u never go back...

ok, that's something I'm not to familiar with.

but I like the SMS custimization through android, also with apple I can't (or dont know how to) make a folder to seperate pictures. Like a folder for pics of bike, and another folder for pics of my daughter. etc

That's cool, even without custom roms, you are able to customize the device with tons of free apps.
I took a gamble with mentioning the custom roms direction because I felt you may be a bit more inclined to, solely based on your presence in the forums.
you're probably not the squid rider who has bikes for show .
you want to squeeze as much out of your bike lol

It is going to be a WAY different expirence. Trust me you have been spoiled with the ease of use for you iphone. There is a reason he is offering to trade you his plus goodies for yours. If you are wanting to customize your phone, look into jailbreaking. ANYTHING the android can do i can do that same thing on my iphone with the jailbreak.

If you decide to stay with the iphone and want to know anything about the jailbreak, just let me know and ill help you out man. Although i wouldnt swap if i were you.

And with the jailbreak there are thousands of free ringtones just waiting to be downloaded, and its easy to create free ringtones!

to chime back in, i run a jailbroken iphone on my bike as my primary means of GPS.
thats all it does.
it is does not have a sim card in it.

i have it setup so that the screen will automatically orientate to the position of the device.
primarily the lock screen and the springboard (equivalent to the desktop,where all ur apps are.)
on the bike have the phone locked in landscape mode.

i also have it setup to automatically unlock the screen and launch my GPS navigation app (navigon) whenever i start the bike.
When the bike turns of, the phone automatically turns the screen of an re-locks itself.

only available if u jailbroke your device..

I'll never fall for the apple hype machine. Way overpriced stuff. Simple maybe. But the i phone is tiny and are they even 4g yet? Like looking at a watch. The new droid ice cream sandwich is a vastly improved OS

I know people worship all things apple. I just dont get it.
