Coming from Blackberry - Best Android?
Looks like we may be coming from AT&T to TMobile soon. I currently have a Bold 9700 and can get the same with TMobile, but I am thinking about coming to Android.
Any suggestions? I really want the physical keyboard, so I am thinking maybe the HTC Mytouch 3G slider?

The G2 is really awesome, and has a keyboard. But I would definitely suggest going into the store and playing with all of the Android phones. You might be surprised which one you like the best. Everyone on the forum has their favorite. What's important is what one suits you best. Good luck!My Smartphone Journey on Big Red:

I use it with Exchange and have no real problem. At least it does not go out of service and attract international attention. RIM has the corner on that market.
RIM has definitely had its share of email issues. Yahoo email has been very slow off and on for the past year with Blackberry.

I personally prefer Exchange and ActiveSync (with Touchdown) on Android over Exchange and BES on the BB which was as good as it gets in the BB world. Even with BES, email was pushed and reconciled whereas ActiveSync offers true sync.

IMAP IDLE has the device logged in and it just waits for the mail server to PUSH the mail to the device. Not all IMAP applications support IDLE. Back in the days of Palm, ChatterEmail provided great IMAP/IDLE service. FlexMail on for Windows does the same and worked very well on my Touch Pro; my Touch Pro 2 though did not care for the application. Since going with the Evo I have stuck with the default email application and will start shortly looking at an alternative.
On the Evo I have Exchange set for peak hours from 0000 to 2359 hours, 7 days a week. Not a problem at all.
