iOS - I like Android OS too, but at the time I got my iPhone, I didn't like any of the Android phones that were available in Canada, and I didn't want to or have the money to buy an unlocked phone. I'm still happy with iOS, especially after jailbreaking it.

iOS... probably sticking with it unless WP7 gets some momentum (I'd love to get my hands on some Nokia hardware with a Phone OS not from 2004 >_< )

Yes, the only reason I am very content with iOS is cause of the Jailbreak.

Although I have iOS 5 without Jailbreak and it looks promising, especially if the Widgets for the Notification Screen is a public API ^^

Android. Just upgraded my Galaxy S Vibrant with the gingerbread firmware (Bell and Virgin released it Aug 10); runs sooooo smoooooth (better than froyo). Plus the AMOLED display is gorgeous; the multimedia support is great (hi def mkv ftw).

I used an iPod touch for a year and a half as my PDA (3rd gen); recently pawned it on craigslist once I got my phone. My gf had the iPod touch 4th gen and I messed around with that too. I just find the Android to be so much more useful as a PDA. My gf recently pawned her iPod as well and picked up an Android phone.

i had a BB 9900 until yesterday. It started lagging after syncing to my google calendar. Exchanged it for an SG2, loved it except for the plasticky build. Exchanged it for the HTC sensation. Definitely a keeper.

I use iOS, but... it's too simple. There is stuff I want to do with it, but can't (And I don't really want to jailbreak). It has a ton of apps, which rocks. But the OS itself is kinda eh.
