    This is a continuation from my thread in the introductions section so I can actually ask some questions and hopefully get the direction I'm looking for.


    I am a user of AT&T and sometimes I think about switching, whether it be for possibly better service or better phones. The problem is most of my friends and family are on AT&T and therefore it's cheaper and whatnot for me to stay on it what with the free mobile-to-mobile calls on the same network.
    As far as what I look for in a smartphone goes, I'm not sure as far as specifics. I just know I want cool apps with some games to play and also many options for customization (e.g. loading new UIs and whatnot). The problem with AT&T is it seems to have very few options when it comes to good Android phones.

    To cut down on confusion, because I can barely tell what I'm trying to say: When I can upgrade in April (or within a couple of months after that), will there be any Android phones I should keep an eye out for on the AT&T network?

    So it's been over a month and a half (figured I'd just use this same thread since it serves the same purpose) and I'm a little less than a month out from being able to upgrade. Since I'm with AT&T, it's likely looking to be the Inspire or the Atrix. Is there anything I should be wary of from either of these phones? I heard some things about the Atrix that might limit it from some of the reasons I want an Android phone.

    In any case, these are the ones I'm looking at, but I'm not closed to other suggestions. I haven't heard if there's others that have been announced or rumored to release soon.

    Thanks in advance!

    Good luck on your choice, one thing I would suggest is going to Wal-Mart, Best-Buy, etc and playing with all the phones you are interested in.

    I originally went from a Blackberry Curve to a SE X10 with a 4" screen. The curve was tiny in comparison, but the X10 still wasn't big enough for me. Then I found the Dell Streak and 5" screen at Best-Buy, I have been watching the phone for 6 months online, but never saw one in person. I couldn't believe the difference in actual size, it is amazing.

    I got the SE from Amazon and returned it after 29 days (great experience, great customer service) and then got the Dell from Best Buy (not great service, but they had the device I wanted and no one else did for the $99 before Christmas).
