I committed to the LG Dare for two years, which just arrived yesterday. It's a touch screen phone.
My previous LG VX8600 was pretty messed up. The front screen was unusable and the battery wouldn't last more than 10 hours on standby.
I like the iPhone, but I'm sticking to my guns of the better network (Verizon Wireless). Plus, the majority of my friends are on the same network.
