    I'm looking to buy a new Android phone. I currently have an unrooted G1, and would like some opinions on what I should get.

    I'm with T-Mobile (USA). I would even switch carriers depending on the phone.

    Any opinions...?

    many might not agree with me, but if u root you're G1 i would say you'd have the best android phone TMO has to offer, at the moment ;)

    LOL. I want to take the dive and root, but I'm too scared of bricking my phone. I attempted to root it and for some reason could not get passed the part where I put the DREAIMG file on my sd card. It would start and then it would freeze and stay stuck on 4 minutes remaining. I took that as a sign not to root. If I can get past that issue then I would totally root my G1.

    Don't let it all be about the phone.
    Check reception and price too. A phone is also as good as its carrier.
    Question to answer:
    1. How many daytime mins do you use?
    2. How much money are you willing to spend monthly?
    3. Can you deal with a virtual keyboard?
    4. What's the coverage of the top 4 in your area?

    A. If you call a lot of mobile phones go with Sprint.
    B. If you call a lot of lines then go with T-Mo
    C. If you get lousy reception then go with Verizon.
    D. C is debatable, but it does carry the droid.

    I don't use that many daytime minutes. I probably use 200-300 a month. I do a ton of texting and emailing. So as long as I have an unlimited text and data plan then I'm good. I was thinking about getting verizon because I'm a real stickler when it comes to reception. T-Mobile has decent reception, but it could be better in my area.

    Get Sprint, best price, great coverage. Samsung Moment is an awesome phone.

    it's also noteworthy that your batterylife will better when you get good reception

    Yeah - I'm in the same situation.

    I have a Nokia N95 (Vodafone UK) whose contract runs out very soon and i want to swap over to a Android. Thing is - do i take the plunge now (probably a Hero since the Droid/Milestone is not available over here) or do I wait till very early next year and see what is out then.

    Thing is there will ALWAYS be a better phone around the corner...
