    We were always worried about Verizon Wireless suffocating their Android handsets – but they didn’t.

    I love my Backflip does wat I want it to do and this my first android phone, and I still use my iphone as well I dont care bout the google search and the untrusted apps like many do, and I took all the motoblur stuff off my desktop I think people are just more made at at&t then the Backflip itself I give the Backfilp a 9 out of 10.

    If you love android support android devices cause no matter how you like at it and wat at&t has changed its still an android.

    The fact that you had an iPhone says it all, it is also locked-down... it can't even run applications in the background (multi-tasking). The fact that at&t changed it takes away the key point of Android, OPEN DEVELOPMENT! The apps are not necessarily "untrusted", they are just not submitted to the Android Market (such as early private beta releases), this could cause problems with applications since it will be harder to test on the platform.

    I support Android, not at&t due to their lack of judgement on many things, such as this stunt.
