    I am ready to move to another phone from my Captivate. I'm tired of waiting on 2.2 and can't stand the fact that I can't fully backup this phone in case it is lost or broken.

    Is there any Android phone that I can get on any network that meets ALL the following criteria:

    1) Can connect to my PC on a weekly basis and do a 100.00% backup of everything (contacts, media, apps, data, etc, etc) with one simple step and no rooting. This should be a local backup, not through some Google sync.
    2) Has 2.2 or 2.3 installed
    3) Doesn't have all of the BS bloatware that AT&T puts on their phones.
    4) Has a 4" or bigger screen
    5) Has a GPS that actually works

    Hello John 1.

    Of all that, your #3 stands out the most as to "no." ;) Rooting your device is still the best way to get rid of bloatware, and to back things up quickly (although not everything).

    There are Froyo devices out there, as well as ones on which GPS functions very well (my Fascinate is one such device, although I've seen many posts from other Fascinate users reporting otherwise).

    Nice big screens are all over the place.

    Verizon will get no complaints from me as to signal strength and quality.
