I don't care much for he iPhone. Apple keeps milking us for better hardware since the beggining and doesn't ever come in on its promises.
I haven't ever owned a different "smart" phone. And know that this phone was not meant to be the end-all be-all of "smart" phones, but a leg in that direction. And Apple has certainly proved that with new iPhone hardware each year! That does not impress me at all....
I will most certainly be on the look out for any new "smart" phone that does not try to milk the sh!t out of you every time they promise something new. Especially one that I don't have to Jailbreak to get standard features. And if the new phone does not come with a iPod, I will buy one!

I don't understand why most of you think a virtual qwerty keyboard is hard to type with. Ever since I got my first 2g iPhone I fell in love with that keyboard, hell I can't even type half as fast on a hardware keyboard. I can d@mn near type as fast as I can on a PC's keyboard with my iPhone! I mean it takes less time to lightly touch the screen then it does to actually press in a key.
I guess thats just my opinion but I find typing to be easy and extremely fast on my iPhone's virtual keyboard. I don't think I could ever go back to a hardware keyboard.160GB iPod Classic

If you think about it..how many applications does the average iphone user have on their phone? if EVERY application on their phone would run in the background the iPhone would be continuously slow and crash ALL of the time. Multitask is given to only the default apps such as mail, sms, ipod, and safari. I love the performance of the phone especially the 3GS. In order for apple to allow such a thing they would have to create a seperate utility that exits all programs or frees up memory..which would be nice but then might as well be a WM device.. which is what they are leaning away from.
As for the LED displaying what you have..ehh.. when you press the home button it does display that you have either sms, voicemail, or missed call just not the mail. If you can look at your led to see if you have missed calls etc..then you can look at your iphone to press 1 button to see if you've missed anything..it's not hard. The mail..well you win lol i don't know what to say about that....slide to unlock?

Who cares!! How this garbage worth posting a story about? Blackberry will be of the past soon. It's like talking with a brick on the side of your face.

Just because you can't type on a touch screen doesn't mean anything with a touch screen sucks.

I'm sorry but coming from a blackberry pearl, curve, as well as a the bold. Blackberry is VERY VERY boring. And if you are saying you use the iPhone's capabilities 10% of the time and the 90% is worthless. Might as well go back to flip phones. iPhone has everything Blackberry has PLUS WAY MORE. There are major companies supporting iPhone. The iPhone has also opened up way more computer programming jobs, as all if not most of the developers are focusing in on the iphone. Blackberry may have some extra features.. which iPhone is planning on getting REALLY soon, I'm sure you've heard. After we get those features, which should be all of em by the end of this year. What will the BB have? NOTHING. Oh im sorry except your "Keyboard" LOL! Oh whoops, forgot to add. GL on the blackberry app store. Since you do think you will be saving money.

i agree with a few of the responses.
without jailbreak, they really don't know what they are missing, and that is a huge reason people are ditching the iphone.
they are too scared to jailbreak.
i too feel like, "screw em, let em have their blackberries!"
more iphones for me!
so what if they need an "actual" keyboard, just shows how unwilling they are to change.
as dude above me said, i can type plenty fast with my iphone and i don't even use auto-correct and still spell correctly every time!
to each their own, so don't bash something just because you don't like it.

Typing on a phone shouldn't be the major reason to switch back to the blackberry... Getting to know the iPhone and how to type comes fast. Or maybe that's just me.

I have no problem typing. At all. By the way some of you people speak of the touch screen, I must have godly powers or something.
