Hi everyone, I have never in my life, had a smartphone. I have been with Verizon for 10 years, but sadly, their pricing is just out of control when it comes to adding a plan to have a smart phone. So I am switching to possibly Tmobile or Virgin Mobile. My question is, what do I need to know about the Android OS to start? Maybe this will help: If I go with Tmobile: I am looking at the Sidekick 4g, Mytouch 4g, or the Galaxy S 4g. Which one of these are the best? If I go with Virgin Mobile: I am looking at the Optimus V I was wondering also, why 2.2 is a good version of Android. I also heard something about malicious downloads being possible with android? How do I avoid and look out for this? What are some good starter tips for the android os? Thank you guys for any and all help!
