    I currently have the Nexus 6 and the iPhone 6+, am I crazy to own more then one phone? I just love pure android as well as iOS and I rather have 2 phones then owning a phone and a tablet. Of course I only have one Sim which I switch to either phone whenever I feel like using one over the other, so its not like I'm paying monthly for two phones. What's everyone's thought on this?

    I usually have a backup phone which I'll use when I sell my main phone just before a new phone I want is released.

    Right now my backup is an M7. I prefer Android over iOS but I do have an iPad and iPod in the house to go with the other Android devices.

    To each his own.... I don't guess it's that bad if you are just switching out a single SIM between two devices.... I use to carry a work iPhone and my Android as my personal so it was a pain to carry around two devices all the time.. I don't think I'd want to do it unless I just bought two devices that came out around the same time and was trying to decide which I wanted to be my everyday driver... but once I settled on one I wouldn't do it anymore....

    Well I definitely won't criticize you because I have an iPhone 6+ and nexus 6 AND am paying for separate lines for them! By the next generation of phones I will most likely narrow down to either iOS or Android and drop a line, but we'll see.

    I also have an iPad Air 2 w/LTE (5gb/month for only $10, gotta love t-mo!) and a nexus 9. Ultimately I have to decide which ecosystem to go with, so I have iOS phone/tablet and android phone/tablet. No rush to make a decision, and I'm having so much fun playing with both I think it'll be at least a year before I decide.... >.>

    I also own an iPhone 6 plus and I ordered a Nexus 6. I also own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 which I am about to sell because of the Nexus. I do not carry both devices with me every day however. I just switch the SIM when I feel like it.

    I love both OSs so I don't discriminate. I say if you want it and can afford it, why not? You can't take it with you when you're dead. LOL!

    I did the exact same thing. Just sold the Note and bought the Nexus 6. Haven't been able to part with my 6 Plus. So I switch SIMS when I feel like a change.

    You're not alone! I still have my Droid Maxx Developer Edition, my Moto X Developer Edition, my Galaxy Nexus, all on Verizon. I also have a Nexus 4 and a Lumia 521, just for giggles. I'll be returning the Maxx next week (2.4GHz wifi doesn't work, so Motorola generously offered a full refund, which funded my Nexus 6). I'll keep the X as a backup. It's an addiction, but I love it!

    Yeah it's up to the individual really. I've got my nexus 6 which I use as my daily driver but I've also got a iPhone 6 that I was using before I got my Nexus. No plans to get rid of it use it as a backup or whatever possibly in between phone. Honestly with the Nexus 6 I probably won't be switching though until the next Nexus. I use Verizon as my main service but my work phone is through at&t so could always use prior nexii on at&t but I usually just forward those calls to my Verizon line anyways and couldn't use a Nexus prior to this year. Well the GNex but then that wasn't really a true Nexus lol. I also have a BlackBerry Q10 so too many phones to use at once yes but nice to have a choice and variety. Have to say though since I've had the Nexus 6 I haven't been thinking about any of my other devices.

    True. If I made more money, I would probably have more devices. But it wouldn't include an Apple phone. But that's just me.

    I like both platforms and enjoy using both, but I understand if the iPhone isn't for some people.

    For tech junkies like us, the saying really does go "Mo money, mo devices". LOL

    IPhone 6, 6+, Nexus 6, Droid Turbo, Moto X 2014, Lumia Icon, and HTC One M8 (Windows).
    I think it's definitely ok to have and use multiple phones. I switch around one a week, or whenever some new software comes out. I can't call myself a fan of any one OS, as they all have strengths and weaknesses in different areas.

    Settings > Messages and toggle iMessage off

    Have both the Nexus 6 and the iPhone 6+. I always get the top of the line Android and iOS phones for every generation. Right now, the iPhone 6+ is running circles around the Nexus 6 -- the first time I've ever felt that way about my iOS device. Battery life in particular. I've been using both phones for 30 min each this morning (on wifi)... lost 1% on the iOS device. Lost 7% on the N6.

    N6 has a LONG way to go right now... if anything, feels very rushed to market.

    Just switching between 2? I can't decide between the Note 4, Nexus 6, Moto X 2014 and the iPhone 6 right now.

    The Note 4 occupies my pocket more than any phone right now. The Nexus 6 is nice, but I'd rather carry the Moto X because I already have a large phone in the N4. And iPhone 6 gets some use when I'm testing an app, or I just feel like a slim smaller phone.
