I'm considering switching from AT&T because I've had a lot of problems
with dropped calls, and I want to move to an android-based phone.

What I hear from people I work with is that Verizon has pretty good
coverage and generally dropped calls are an exception rather than
something we come to expect.

As I've looked at phones, I've come down to two: The HTC Legend (if/when
it becomes available in the US) or the Droid X (which is available
through Verizon).

I'm leaning towards the Droid X (largely because of the higher colour
depth and the 3G wifi hotspot capability - always good to have a backup
for 'net connectivity).

Anyone got one and willing to share likes/dislikes? What I'm looking to
do is buy a phone that's going to last me at least 2 years and gets me
off AT&T.

The only thing that's got me hesitating is the base plan price - I just
got my AT&T bill down to about $70/month, and Verizon is a little more
expensive with the unlimited data plan and lowest minute rate plan (450,
but I tend to use the phone for data more than voice anyways - does
Verizon roll minutes over like AT&T?). Wondering if I'm missing an
option there. SMS isn't a big issue for me since I have Google Voice and
can receive messages on that number.
