    I made the switch 2 weeks ago, my iPhone 4 still in my drawer just in case. Still missing Words with Friends and Plants vs Zombies(actually going over withdraw syndrome...)

    Had to do some work to get the Droid X to be as usable as the iPhone, for example, goodbye Verizon crap and hello Froyo vanilla!! Then finding the right apps, free and paid ones, spent about 20 bucks to make things the way I wanted.

    Don't expect a better phone without putting some blood, sweat and tears on it.. But the reward is great when it becomes YOUR phone.

    Start with getting rid of the original ROM, battery life is amazing if you pick the correct ROM(I got Fission), I went from 4-5 hrs from full to dead to at least 10 hours of full usage, actually better the the iPhone 4

    I made the switch from Blackberry back in July. I missed BBM at first, but got over it. Android is so young that most people are coming over from something or another.

    Zaftxx- welcome to the club. Im a blackberry convert myself and im hooked

    @dotpage- have you seen word feud yet? Im addicted but it may not be quite the same as words with friends...

    And a little blood and sweat is definitely needed, but well worth imo

    Same here. Paid the ETF to get out of my iPhone a year early, haven't regretted it for a second.

    Came from a BB Storm. Miss somethings about it but not others.
    Miss the easy layout. Don't miss the slowness. Sometimes miss Surepress, sometimes glad it isn't there. Miss some games, enjoying others. Glad for a browser experience that works and the zoom feature of the screen!!!
    The actual phone, email and texting is about the same.

    I also came from the BB Storm. You must have had a much better experience than I did. That thing was a piece of junk. Extremely buggy...
