Default Phone?

Which phone do you use for business and why also which carrier and plan? iOS or android? Pros and cons of your phone ?


I haven't published my number all work is word of mouth but I am soon going live with the website / marketing and trying to decide wether to just keep my iPhone 4 personal or get a dedicated line for the business , any help here from those who transitioned would be great.

I have the HTC EVO 4G, I liked it all the way up until I cracked the screen, my fault I dropped some thing pretty heavy on it by mistake.

Android Razr M - it's my first smart phone so I don't have anything to compare it to. I use just a fraction of what it's capable of doing. I bought it mainly for it's supposed durability. So far so good.

Verizon is my carrier. Will likely never use a different company - at least here where we live.

The thing I like most about the iPhone is the voicemail feature how it records it straight to missed calls you don't have to enter pass code push 2 for this 4 for that push star to go back like my old phone did. I wonder if the galaxy has the same feature?

most Android systems have that, so yes the galaxy has that function as well as my EVO.

Just switched from Android to iPhone 5. Happy with the switch.

I like that iPhone allows much more control over privacy by far than android. At least the one I used to own.

Android is more customizable.

iPhone should be better supported with updates, at least in my experience.

Only one screen size for phone, so if you want a big screen, android is a better option there.

I'm old school too with a Pantech slider, no G-whatever. I can text and have business emails forwarded.

Never saw the need to have a data plan and be surfing during work. I feel I owe it to my customers to give them my undivided attention. (can you imagine needing to fulfill a PT jones while up a ladder?)

I have the galaxy s2 droid but i might switch over to the iphone 5 in a few week when T-mobile starts offering them. That way i can sync it with my mac book using icloud or whatever its called. Must research it a bit more as i don't want to get locked in for 2 more years all the same.

I hope the z10 and windows take off. Competition is good for all of us regardless of platform chosen. I would like to see everyone coming up with new and innovative stuff. Iron sharpens iron.
