Pretty much 4g/3g switching problems, but I never encountered any, neither did anyone else I know with a RAZR. This phone has been perfect. I had a 4S that I returned that thing has iOS 5.1 and it wouldn't even IDLE for 12 hours the battery life was so bad. The RAZR has been perfection in convenient phone form...

its not google`s fault. blame your careers and OEM`s as well. and also android is open source and there are different devices so the whole update process slows down. on the other hand apple only has limited devices to support which results in faster updates. same is true with google nexus devices.

I thought IOS was a perfect OS and didn't have bugs.

it comes and goes and if their iDevices arent set up to iOS 5.0+ you shouldnt have that problem. i saw that after a few soft resets it would work, and ive only have to do it once before now. its just frustrating to have to enter the security code everytime and its right, but always comes back invalid. bs.

Sounds like fragmentation.

The only people concerned about Android's so-called 'fragmentation' are fanboys of other OSes who need to rationalize its dominance. My phone on Gingerbread does everything I want as smoothly and flawlessly as any competing phone, including the iPhone. When ICS comes to my phone, I'll take it. But it honestly doesn't matter and isn't needed.

gallito sure is railing on samsung lately. Must be feeling a bit inadequate after seeing the monster SGS3. Heck your iphone could fly right through the screen area without ever touching the bezel. its so small and cute.

hate to admit but yes you are right.. I had high expectations on the SGSIII yes is a monster but only in size... guess I will stay with Apple ..

Year? First ICS device and the source code was released at the end of last year right?

When did iOS 5 come out? Yup right before ICS

Android is for the tech savy, if you understand open source and linux its hands down the way to go. Get a new android, root, your all set. iOS was the first of its kind, since then it still looks IDENTICAL, one of the new features it has added in previous years is, you ready for this? Picture messaging! lol a few years ago the phone couldnt even do that! Even the newest iPhone 4S isnt a 4G device, all that money for data and its slow, lol Every since iOS 3.2 and above Apple has just been copying android as far as features and functionality, i.e. notification bar. I was a loyal Apple fan through all of them up until the 4GS, Apple hasnt done anything NEW and INNOVATIVE since the first one if you really look at it. If the iPhone 5 or NEW iPHONE isnt mindblowing I promise you Android will take over. Especially if the deal goes down with Google and Moto. Then Google could very well have their own device/OS like Apple, despite them saying they would still be OEM.

This. Apple may get updates out faster, but all in all, it'll always be the same grid of apps with no selection or customization whatsoever.

It should have said iOS 5.1.1 is out adding to the fragmentation.
