Don't know if I said this but I am not a fanboi. I like all technology. iPhones are awesome as are Droids. I have a Droid. Wife has an iPhone. She dumper her Droid for an iPhone and is very happy. Here's the thing: ANY smartphone you buy... even the most basic model... is going to do ALL the stuff you say you don't need. Camera? Check. Advanced internet? Check. So get that out of your head. If you are going to pay for a data plan... usae it. Having said that: I would recommend any HTC Android. Those are far and away my favorite. HTC adds a little bit of goodness on top of the OS which really makes it stand apart. The iPhone is nice though. A friend of mine said it best: The iPhone is an mp3 player with a phone added to it. The Droid is a phone with an MP3 player added to it. In other words, the Androids are generally better phones. But the music player and the "slickness" of the iPhone is nicer then the Androids. Although if you really love the Q9C: you can have my old one for free.
