This is actually my second Android. US Cellular is my carrier, and has been for over a decade. That said, I wanted to see what all the buzz was about, so I got a no contract T-Mo account and put a used G1 on it for a couple months. I was stoked! Now, we have Android at USCC, via Samsung's Acclaim. It is a VERY capable phone, to say the least, and I am thoroughly loving it! I came from a BlackBerry, and before those, a couple of Windows phones. I miss BlackBerry's Messenger service, but aside from that, I am happy to be where I'm at. My 'Berry was a capable phone, but I do believe that Android will be the new benchmark of mobile, smartphone communications. Oh yes, I've been using Linux as my primary computer OS for several years now, the past two years primarily running Ubuntu. Android just fits!
