Unhappy cant decide on a phone

hey guys, buying out my bell contract looking to go to either rogers or telus.

but im stuck on what phone to get..

ive been really interested in android, watching reviews to previews, just enjoying the whole experience from someone elses perspective. but i still havent found out... what type of users are the phones for?

then ive also been looking at iphone 3Gs' and basically playing it safe, knowing im getting a quality and supported product, seeing my friends with it, and trying it, shows me its more for media, and thats basically what im looking for.

any help with your guys' comments and opinions, are very appreciated

thanks for reading

I'd stick with your current phone until the iphone 4 issues are fixed then I'd upgrade

I have a 3gs right now and I'd recommend finding a place that stocks one of the larger sizes because its really easy to burn through your storage space. What provider are you going for? I'm on telus right now and I have a 200min, 1GB, unlimited text plan for $35.

I've got an iPhone 4. It's my favourite phone so far - I've had a Nokia E65, T-Mobile G1, HTC HD2 and the iPhone 4 (obviously :P).

Android. My friend has the iPhone and sometimes gets really bad crashing/freezing issues. Not jail-broken either!

nope, I got it because I work at a telus retailer (best buy). I should have gotten caller ID but I dont want to push it because technically I shouldnt have it because I work in computers instead of mobile.

Whats a retention plan btw? It also helps to phone telus directly and try to talk their prices down that way (do it with all the providers) thats what my dad always does and he gets great deals. Don't forget that telus and bell use the same network.
