Blackberry or iPhone?

Well my trusty Blackberry finally called it quits on me today. The stupid rolly ball no longer rolls all directions, so all I can pretty much do is make phone calls. Which my husband says that's what a cell phone is for anyway, so he doesn't understand the dilemma...silly boy. Anyway, fortunately I'm eligible for an upgrade, so now I'm just trying to decide if I should stick with a Blackberry or give the iPhone a shot. I really do like the Blackberry and love messenger...especially since my mom, all my sisters, and BFF have a BB so I'm not sure I'm ready to depart with that....but we could really still email instead I guess? Ugh...I'm so conflicted and need to decide asap! Tell me what you love and hate about either, please.

  1. I'm getting me an Iphone in December. In my research (asking my friends) they all prefer the Iphone. Many have traded in their Blackberry for the Iphone and have been 110% happy with the decision :o) Can't wait to get mine!

  5. Girlfriend I had a blackberry and after it broke I got the iPhone. I LOVE it. It had a map application. Craving apple bars at dollar tree and don't know where one is or you in another town. Use your map application. Type in dollar tree it will show you everyone around you. Click in the closest one and it gives you the address phone #. Need directions click on turn by turn it will give you directions on how to get there from where you are. They have an application to help you remember where you parked. Like a song on the radio don't know who it is hold your phone up cluck on the shazam app it will tell you who it is. You can click download from iTunes. Not only is it a phone it is an iPod 2 for the price of one. You are one click away from your email and facebook. As far as messenger you can dl apps for Aim,yahoo,msn.

    Should I go on? Get the iPhone. You will love it and so many apps are free.

    Email me if you have any questions.

  6. I love my iPhone. The only downside: the battery life. I have to charge it every day. Not so with my ol' Blackberry.

    Go with the iPhone and if you end up hating it, you can return it...I think. Might want to check on that, lol.

  7. I have an Iphone, and I LOVE it. I also have used works Black Berry and am OK with it. I just don't feel comfertable using it because I don't know it as well as my Iphone. i like having my Ipod and phone in one for gym use also I really like the touch screen. I did break the screen a few weeks ago but it still works fine and I am waiting to upgrade in 2010 when the NEW iphone comes out. http://www.techin4u.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/iphone-4g-concept1.jpg

    As far as messenger, you could always text ;)

    Let us know which you pick. And if you go Iphone give it a few days to adjust to the touch screen, after that I think you'll love it :)

  8. I haven't owned a Blackberry, but I must say I LOVE my iphone! It amazes me how many things are available on it! It has been so helpful in so many situations when we've been out of town and needed directions, or just for entertainment! We both have one and don't imagine we'll ever want to give it up!

  9. Hey Sarah! I don't have either but what I've seen the blackberry is not as user friendly as the iphone. If you want a researched answer you should email Jarred! He just made the switch from blackberry to iphone and I think he might be in love!!

    Good luck!

  10. I have a blackberry but really want an iPhone. My dh has and iphone and the web browsing is so much better. It also has a gps built in so when we are looking for someplace we can just plug it into his phone and get there. Only issue with the iphone is the keyboard. It is totally different from the blackberry and I am always spelling things wrong. My husband tells me that it gets much better with practice.

  11. Stick with blackberry. Really. iphones are trendy and flashy and sure "there's an app for that" but they really aren't as functional as a blackberry. Granted, I think blackberries are the modern-day equivalent of a pocket protector, but I'd rather have something that actually works. Plus, once you switch, you will HATE not having a real keyboard. Everyone I know who switches, if it's at all possible, they switch back.

  12. I am a phone freak too but must say Blackberry can never be replaced and Iphone no doubt is a good phone but once you have got used to Blackberry you wont be able to handle Iphone easily but if u want a good change then Iphone is good. And if you are throwing away your Blackberry do courier it to me because i need one. Ha Ha :-)

  13. Can't help you at all with this b/c I'm so not a cell phone gal, BUT I'm just super excited to see another post. (I grew worried last week.) I pray you are feeling well and that you have a fantastic Friday!! XO!

  14. I am in the same situation, I love my "crack"berry, but the iPhone has drawn my eye. I think I may stick with the BB but I may get the upgraded verison like the Bold or the Storm. I know that there's an application for everything on the iphone, but do the applications apply to how I make my living is the question I have to ask myself! :)

  15. Ok... so here is my opinion! I have a BB for my business line and I have an I phone for personal use. Hands-down, I love the Iphone a million times better. when you put your hands on an IPhone you will know what I'm talking about. Simplet to use, everything at your fingertip! TRUST ME! GO WITH THE IPHONE! :)

  16. I am of absolutely no assistance here. I don't have either one and know them only by name.

  17. I don't have either--so not much help here. I have just recently added texting to my phone :) I would have no idea how to use the internet on a phone...oh well!

    I hope you get lots of suggestion--I know we are attached to our phones.

  18. I had a blackberry for about a year and a half when it basically just stopped working. I felt like I had to get the iPhone because it was "the new thing." I literally cried (not kidding) in AT&T because I didn't want to part from my blackberry. Now, I can't imagine going back to the blackberry. The iPhone is WONDERFUL! All the apps are so so helpful! And I think the iPhone is much easier to use. The only negatives are: no BBM and you have to be careful not to shatter the screen! So my vote-- the iPhone!

  20. I used to have a blackberry and switched to the iPhone over a year ago and wouldnt go back. I must admit with the others that the keyboard does take some getting used to, but once you get used to that you will love it!

  24. All I can add is that I WISH that I got the iphone...instead of the fake one that I have now. I am so jealous of my friends that have iPhones.

  25. I just had the same problem... my beloved bb died on me and I went back and forth on which phone to get. I went w/ the iPhone and couldn't be happier. I never thought I would part w/ the BB but I am happy I did!
