No. I buy it from my phone like everything else. The computer is pretty much a back up for your phone. And vie never heard of android "backing up itself" my brother always has to take his evo in and update it. If it's a huge update that is. I'm sure I'd rather take 5 minutes out of m. Life to find a chord and plug in my phone in the computer.
Read what I typed. I said music that's on your computer. Not everyone buys their music on the phone (it's actually not most people). But you still continue to prove my point further with what you say. You said, "the computer is pretty much a back up for your phone." Guess what, I don't even need a computer backup for the music on my Droid. It's stored on a removable SD so it's not lost if the phone bites the dust (no computer backup needed). Like I said, Android phones don't need the computer and have good backups.

Yes, Android does back up itself. My contacts, data, and apps are all backed up automatically. When I flash a new ROM, everything comes back automatically. It's so automatic, I don't even have to go anywhere and tell it to download the apps. Literally start the phone and let it sit while it downloads and installs. All updates on my phone (D1) have been done without connecting to the computer and I've had it for 2 years.

My point still remains the same even if you want to argue little details. iOS5 is stiving to become more like Android. Because they're implimenting "new" things into their software that's currently being done by Android. You stated:

IOS5 will start saving things to your account, which means you won't need a computer anymore
and that's been done by Android for 2 year already. It was actually done on the very first Android phone. The next thing people are going to start saying is that (when it happens) the iPhone having a removable battery and SD card is new and revolutionary.

I'm with Sonic Boom.... Steve Job's keeps adding stuff and calling it revolutionary when someone else has been doing it for YEAR'S. Steve thinks his **** don't stink and thats why I won't buy another apple product. I have a iPod and a iPod touch and thats enough for me. As a mainly PC user, I find Apple's software is over priced, under performing (read resource hogging) and way to invasive. For example; iTunes.... This POS program will find all the music on your computer. Re-label it, move it and reconfigure it to something more "Mac Friendly" without you even telling it to. WTF is that ****? The only reason that I bout the iPod was because it was the only thing that was decent back in the day. The reason I have the touch is because it was required for some the CISCO CCNA course I took. All the training videos and lab's were on it. Otherwise I'd go elsewhere.

All these complaints hold true with the iPhone as well. Overpriced, underspec'd and generally brittle. I have two friends that have broken multiple iPhone's from stupid short falls and similar events that my Droid has seen a million times.

yeah i don't know anything. your a moron. I thought mods were supposed to stop things from getting personal and insulting people from posting there opions.
now thats not nice. just because your horribly loosing a discussion dont mean you need to resort to name calling sheesh. i have feelings you know































ahahahahaahahah sorry i tried typing that with a straight face and could not do it.

face it. android is too much for you to handle. you would much rather sit there and sell people crap they cant do anything with then show them the joy of making something you own actually yours.

I toady agree with the whole steven jobs part and how it's all over priced. The only reason the phone is still so incredible is because it has one button. Other wise it's all touch. I've also dropped my phone a good amount of times from a great distant and watched it bounce away an it's still fine. My brother and gf have dropped they're evo's and cracked the screen when it was a simple drop. It's a matter of how lucky your drop is. Hahaha.

Call me when you have gouges from your phone and the screen is bent. But everything still works like new.

My parents shared that phone in the 90's lol. I'm pretty sure the cellular waves or radiation or whatever it is, had some slight side effects on them :eek:

Hey, I had a StarTAC, too. Cool phones for their time. I only upgraded away from it because it didn't have a contact list, just 10 speed-dial numbers.
