I have an iPhone 3G and I've been using it for 6 months ... Apple iPhone forum
My iPhone or Blackberry?
I have an iPhone 3G and I've been using it for 6 months now. I did anything like many ppl to get it and spent 2 months finding a way 2 hack it so I can use it on any network. Everything went well and I was happy and always playing around with it, but now that I saw the Blackberry 8900 curve I don't know what's going on. Almost everyone I know has a BB and they're all pushing me 2 get one, and my husband is also wanting 2 get one.
And I need advice cause I can't make up my mind if we should get Blackberries or should I stick 2 what I have. I'm liking the BB messenger idea and it will save me a lot of money instead of SMSing.
Well SMS shouldnt be much of a big deal since there are free SMS apps for the IPhone that you can use...If you want to use BB messenger then of course get a BB...I miss BB messenger and the fact that email wasnt a pain in the butt to use. I do like the selection I have for apps on my IPhone. If you cannot live without the great music function and great app store then stick with the IPhone, if you want a better email function and BB messenger then hell go with the BB. I have been thinking about buying a Bold or even wait until I get out of Marine Corps bootcamp and getting the new Curve when it launches on AT&T.
It really comes down to what you want your device to do. There are many things the iPhone can do and the BB can't, and vise-versa. Have you had a chance to play with the BB. I think if you do there will be no doubt BB for business and connectivity and iPhone for fun.
^^First sentence says it all^^.
Don't be influenced by pier pressure, think about your own needs and what you would like. Forget them, unless they are going to pay the bill.

Reason: spelling errors
The IPhone isn't bad for business, you can connect it with Microsoft Exchange and sync the device the way you can a BB...It all depends on if the company you work for wants you using BES or allows for an IPhone on the server...I would much rather use a BB for business unless I were a Doctor.

well I don't have any of the free SMS ur talking about and I don't think that I can use them with my provider cause honestly there is no wireless or wi-fi where I go. But the BB can connect thru the service and my provider configures ur SIM for the service of BB messaging and using the browser. I don't really use my Iphone that much, cause I have a 30G Ipod and all my music is on there.
confession: I went last night and both my husband and I bought the Blackberry Curve 8900. and honestly I think I'm starting to fall in love.
Well all that matters is you're liking the Curve. :-) Congrats on the new buy.
