ok, someone explain to me the whole email thing...i'm about to get the bold 9700 in a few days. i've always used the browser to check my emails so i'm not understanding the logic behind "this phone gets emails faster than that phone" argument. what am i missing?

BB has direct push mail. In other words, the moment an e-mail is received in your inbox (whatever service) it immediately gets pushed onto your BB messages inbox. All you have to do is have a data plan with your service provider. And the respective BB Service Books (which include all your mails that you may have - up to 10).
On the IPhone it's similar, but since the push service is cyclical ( you choose the times - 15 minutes, 30 minutes and hour, once a day) you'll only get the messages in your inbox depending on the cycle you choose - or by opening the inbox which loads all mail received in the meantime.
Hence the BB being faster all the time. It´s because it immediately lets you know when mail has arrived.
I stand corrected of course, but basically, that's how it works.

ahh ok, well i guess it's all a matter of preference then cause personally i would find it a bit of a nuisance to have my phone alert me each time i get an email. and before anyone says you can change the settings (i ran into them while shuffling through the menus), does it let you reply within the message folder? that would be the only convenience i could find for it; otherwise it would just be better to go through the browser where you actually CAN reply...Anyhow; again i don't see it as a huge selling point for me so i wouldn't make that a comparison against the iphone...
In terms of comparisons, i always thought the blackberries were ahead of the iphone in terms of sheer reliability. i have come across several iphone users who have a cracked screen, freeze, or simply having the battery die within a few hours. now, i can't say anything about the new iphone 4, but already pinstack has an article about recent complaints...one good thing that i find to be a convenience is the video chat. but even that isn't perfect as it only works with wi-fi and other iphone users...but no doubt every other phone company will eventually follow and make one better within the next few months i'm sure.
