    An iPhone 3Gs, maybe. An iPhone 4, probably not. An iPhone 4s, definitely not.

    Of course, if you have an iPhone 4 and want a phone to travel internationally, so the world phone capability is interesting to you, then you may want to, yes.

    Don't get me wrong - I really like the D3 - but I wouldn't step down from a 4S for it.

    its not a 4s its the 8gb one that verizon came out with.. not sure what its called exactly.. my only issue is looking at what the two are worth. i dont want to give her a phone and a bunch of cases for a phone that is worth way way less.. would it be unfair to ask for some cash in the trade as well? also what is a droid 3 worth right now?

    FYI Droid 3 and iphone 4s would be a good deal. Now in my opinion and other bad deal would be an iphone 4 and 3gs no that would be crack deal unless you tell the owner to put extra money for iphone 4 or 3gs. I hate when iphone user like lying and telling people about lies to make people feel like their phone isnt good enough.


    Droid 4 could easily be better then 4's is a spinoff of the droid razr with higher ppi( Same as DROID 3 275PPI ) then it cousin RAZR( 256 PPI) and of course the physical keyboard.

    Droid 4 isn't a bad device for trade bait for iphone 4s or 4. But droid 3 based on no update ics and the camera doesn't work even on ics rom . No, droid 4 got android 4.1.2 os and isn't a bad device is worth those trade you mention.
