I have access to both devices and they're both really good. Although, I find the ICS roms on this device are more stable than the SR, IMO.

I can agree with this.

Friend of mine has the Skyrocket. We were in NYC yesterday for the auto show so he had those LTE speeds unleashed and they were pretty damn impressive. They were totally destroying my HSPA+ speeds. I've played around with his phone on other occasions and it really isn't that bad at all.

Both are really good phones.

Depends. Does Att have an LTE network up where you live? If so then yes, if not than the skyrocket is pointless and by the time they do have LTE live where you are there will be much better devices available.

As you already mentioned there is a ton of dev support for this device. I personally am very happy with my i777.

And about the headphones, why don't you try them out at the store...

I had a skyrocket, went to a iphone 4s, now on the S2 and my gf has a Vivid so I think I can help.

Skyrocket has a little larger screen and data was always faster for me even on just hspa+. One thing I noticed too is it could handle a website with a wall of animated gifs that my 4S and this S2 struggle with.

The S2 has better dev support but that's the only category it wins to me.

Iphone I loathe now. Not customizable compared to android and sometimes too simple. The smaller screen can be annoying too.
I know what you mean about the Vivid audio jack so annoying

The fact that I have LTE makes it not a major concern, its very spotty I mean yeah its faster then my fios but its spotty and you only get it here and there... I'm on 4g most the time anyways

The jack is my biggest concern honestly its so annoying, haha I have a feeling he won't swap with me if I don't get a iPhone he's pro ios and anti reg apple os lmao

What screen and battery do you like more out of them

The resolution on the iphone is great but I prefer the colors of super amoled on the Samsung.

Skyrocket is always faster even on just 4g. Also no headphone jack issues on Samsung or apple

Iphone had the best battery life but still Samsung isn't bad either

I find the SR just a tad too big for confortable/secure one-handed use. For that reason I chose the i777. If that weren't a factor. I'd have gone with the SR.

OTOH I do know people who had the same concern about one-handed use, got the SR anyway, and now say they are used to it and glad with their choice.

the phone isn't actually as big as you think it is (for one-handed use). I've done it and its not bad but I have big hands. My wife has very small hands and she has a hard time using one hand, so it really depends on the user.

Go to an AT&T store and play with both of them, see which one you like. We cant tell you because obviously we would be biased... otherwise you would see us in the Skyrocket forum.
