If you think you'll be happier you just aren't using your smartphone as a smartphone and probably would be happier to go back. Nothing wrong with it, either.
Personally, streaming video is a so-so feature but streaming music beats the heck out of maintaining an MP3 library or OTA radio. GPS and mapping functionality alone is worth the money. Plus a portable hotspot came in useful today at a conference where the WiFi blocked my VPN (web only access). Not to mention instant access to Google searches on the fly.
My wife, on the other hand, doesn't use her Blackberry for anything but email. The idea of gaming and streaming video from our home webcams as a monitor may still win her over, but she can probably get by with a 4.3" tablet instead of a phone. Then again, she's got me to look stuff up for her.Galaxy Nexus (VZW)

Let's put it this way. I was more afraid of loosing root and froyo than bricking when I had flashed a bad rom this week. I am totally addicted.

I tell ya, I see all these unlocked & globally compatible flip phones on eBay for practically no money and I'm tempted to break the "new blingy phone - new contract" cycle. Especially when I consider that my phone isn't even global since it's CDMA and quad band flips are cheap as chips (which I will end up buying anyway if/when I go to a GSM only area and know I'll need to make or receive calls).

Well as much as I can appreciate the basic phone, however, for the past 6+ years I have been using smartphones and actually I cannot go back because I use every feature as much as possible and I use it for work. Since I am on a family plan, my work pays for my portion of the bill which is really nice.
