    I hope I can get some good feedback on this - not start a flamewar of sorts...

    I have two iPhone 3G's at the moment (me and my wife) and we love them since we use Macs and iTunes not to mention all of the slick features!!!

    BUT

    I just started a new job where I can get a HEALTHY discount with either Verizon or Sprint. To the point where I can save about $43 a month on my bill and have phone insurance again.

    The Sprint Instinct seems too clumsy (at least from an iPhone user) -- I saw a Dare the other day and seems pretty cool BUT the store had not activated it so no internet :-(


    we use our phones in the way (most to least)

    - web surfing (not our primary net decvice but while at work, out to eat on vacation it beats hauling around a computer)

    - e-mail (gmail)

    - texting a bunch

    - mp3 playback while going for walks (can you plug in a stereo hetset that has built-in mic like the iphone and it will let you know when some one texted or calls?

    - and a phone


    I have many questions but I'll try not to ramble


    How well does it stand up to daily use, I typically leave mine in my pockets with keys and such - damage at all to my iPhone? Transferring playlists to the Dare from iTunes any easy way? (I can dual boot into a Vista system). Can you buy mini applications like the itunes? Can you easily transport photo's onto the mini-sd card that can be read by a computer (I know in the past Verizon didn't allow that sort of thing??)

    Well thanks and I hope to join the Virizon family soon

    John

    I don't have the dare but it depends on your needs. If $43 is a lot of money to you, then I would switch to Verizon. However, in terms of the phone, I heard that while the dare is decent, it does not beat the iPhone. The iPhone is a versatile phone.

    I have been using the Dare since the day it came out. LOVE IT.

    -GREAT battery life
    -Touch Screen is right on!!
    -Fast Data speeds
    -Huge Text Inbox capacity
    -Great Sound
    -Great Features

    Cons:
    As with most touch screens, it is hard to see in sun light.


    I have also sold the dare to many customers and they all love it.
