I just purchased a Motorola Razor Maax and wonder if I should have purchased an iPhone.

Definitely go with a Droid, I sue The Samsung Galaxy with Verizon, lightening fast, large screen, great camera, video, this phone does it all!

I think I'll keep my Motorola as I understand it is MADE IN AMERICA! If I'm mistaken about this, please advise. I do like my Android Razor Maax, but there may be better apps available for realtors on the iPhone. Plus, iPhone is probably useful if you have other Apple devices, as your files are synced to the other devices.

I love the iPhone as well. I will qualify this by saying I am far from an "Apple fan" - my wife wanted the iPhone so I gave in. I don't care about the "brand" - I just want something that works. The reason I like the iPhone is quite simply for that reason - it "just works". Easy to use, fast, and responsive. No issues. I had a Blackberry prior to this phone and it seemed like there was a problem literally every month.

Additionally, I have two iPhone 4S's on the unlimited Sprint plan for $150 a month total (the company my wife works for has a 15% corporate discount). I researched the different plans and $150 a month for unlimited "everything" for two phones was by far the best deal I could find.

Very happy thus far!

The best cell phone is the one I got from an in-active real estate agent.

We love our iphones. We have the unlimited calling, texting, and internet. I can't imagine functioning without it.

I definitely prefer the iPhone! You can access emails easily and get many useful apps.

I can't think of a phone quite like the iPhone. Switched from my blackberry about 6 months ago, never looked back. Using a Mophie charger case to combat the short battery life. Os6 mapping turn by turn directions are great. Easy to use reminders for screened phone calls are really nice too. It keeps getting better!

I made the switch from a Blackberry to the I phone 4 and love it. It is very user friendly

I like my BlackBerry 9670 flip smartphone. It also opens Lockboxes to access homes. I guess it is to each persons preference. Oh the most important factor, it is from Boost Mobile which is only $45 a month for unlimited everything, voice, text and web. They do start you out at $60 a month and drop $5 every six months for paying on time until you get to the bottom $45. Good luck as I know there is a lot of people interested in the new IPhone for $700. Not me!

Black berry. not flipping pages to make a simple call or send a simple text msg. Time is money in our business. Need to make a quick call to the office or home? just press a speed dial botton and put it on speaker nothing more. I tried the droid and it frustrated me having to flip flip flip before I could simply call someone ;(
Great news on dropping the phone also (happens to us all) my black berry is intact, a real warrior.

Love, love, love my iphone. Haven't yet had the courage to venture out to get the latest and greatest Iphone 5 but have to say it is pretty hard to beat my 4s.

The new iPhone 5 is state of the art and the best choice as of yesterday. Before yesterday I really like the Samsung S3 the 5” screen really helps and the battery life is much better than the iPhone. Samsung & Apple have been suing each other over patient rights and Samsung makes many of the components for the iPhone. The S3 is very similar to an iPhone? Hmm?

I use my iPhone for everything. I even showed the inside of a closet today using the flashlight app.

Hello Peter,

My wife has the razor but i believe the Iphone reigns supreme. I am curious to see what the iphone5 can do. a lot of real estate apps available for you.

I'm still using a 3 o 4 year old Blackberry. It does all that it needs to do for me. I'm out of contract with my carrier (T-Mobile) so I have the luxury of switching carriers at any time. If I were to go to the dark side (buying an IPhone ) it would mean my having to change my current carrier and sign on for a much more expensive mobile and data plan.

When my current phone dies I'll probably do what you did and buy an Android phone. I understand they are great. Also, I guess I'm just not a fan boy.
