    Some of you may remember when I posted about my cell phone contract being sold to AT&T from Verizon. Well, I am very close now to getting a new "comparable" phone from AT&T to replace my Moto Droid.

    The new phone that they will most likely be sending me is the HTC Aria. Anybody have any thoughts about this phone? Is it a good phone? Is it comparable to the Moto Droid? To be honest, I plan on switching back to Verizon after all this mess anyway. I am just curious (in the rare event that I might be stuck with the phone) as to whether or not this is a good replacement (even though nothing can replace my droid .... I love it so much).

    I am only transitioning to AT&T because of the merger of verizon and alltell (it made a monopoly in some areas, and our gov't made verizon sell contracts).

    I find it sick that the best "comparable" phone is the Aria. I COULD get a captivate, but would have to shell out $200 and get a 2 year contract. Looks like I am going to have to stick with the aria. Anyone interested in buying 2 of them for cheap? >_>

    Going to move this to the Aria phone forum so that you can hear from actual owners.

    I purchased an Aria last week. I absolutely LOVE the phone! The only major drawback is that there is not a lot of internal memory storage. I think it is only 384 Meg, of which 103 Meg is available to the user due to the useless locked in AT&T apps. If you root the phone however, you can get rid of them. The display quality is fantastic, the phone is super easy to use, slim and sleek, as a phone should be! It fits nicely in your pocket and isn't bulky!

    the aria will show you just how much of a stuttery, laggy mess the first droid was.
