So years after their premiere, I'm finally leaving the dark ages and getting a dataphone plan this weekend (on Verizon). This leads to the question; Andriod or iPhone? I presume the community here favors Andorid, so could you explain why? What are the disadvantages/advantages of one over the other? Additionally, I had a question about app billing which company websites were unable to answer. Are app purchases added to your phone carrier bill, or through a separate micro-transaction? I ask because I'll be getting the phone under my parent's family plan, and don't need my father seeing I spent $5 on the "fart of the day app" and such when the bill arrives to his address.
