    I agree with ya, I too have thought about going the iphone rout, but I would miss the ability to multitask and I love my push Email too much.

    Yeah. and that's the thing. I only had 3 emails that i even needed to check for my needs. so bb's push was great although not worth the 20 or so bucks a month for Edge service. it's all about what you're looking for and youre needs... there are cons to the iphone obviously (i.e. no mass storage, etc.), but it's an amazing multimedia device and for my business needs, it's perfect.

    Awesome, man.

    One question; Do you notice a difference with 3G at all?

    I tried an iPhone out at the vendor's kiosk in the mall and gotta say that it has a lot of nice features, but overall, I just couldn't kick my BB habit. I just love the form, functionality, and features of it.

    You can always buy another.

    Many have gone back and many have stick with the iPhone. I treid twice and came back to the Blackberry over and over. I got to have a real tactile keyboard. My iPhones, both, had crap for reception compared to full bars for the Bold.

    I think I will also be leaving BB soon... There OS is such a bore... they have came out with numerous devices but the OS is garbage... When I had the 8320, it was cool with the 4.3 OS then I upgraded to the 4.5 and YAY! i can now record? only major change I saw, then when I jumped shipped to the 8900, everything was the same, just looked better... When I 1st heard 5.0 was comming out I said FINALLY, they are stepping up to Apples OS or even Andriods OS, But from the leaks and what i read, 5.0 is the SAME ****, with MINOR upgrades... I use my phone MAINLY for personal use so maybe thats why I find it so boring.. I feel as if Rim needs to do a MAJOR upgrade to catch up with there consumer market before they lose it just as fast as they tried to attract it

    That defeats the point of it being a 3g device

    They do need to add more animation and stuff but then people would probably complain about something else because there's always something to complain about. 5.0 is not done yet but with the new bbm and tabbed browsing it sounds like they might have something. They also need to fix the html emails
